Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
I'm sure if you make it exactly as written, it's amazing. I personally attempted to make it a bit healthier and it was really good! I used applesauce instead of oil, 1 cup whole wheat and 2 1/2 cups unbleached white flour, used 1 teaspoon of each spice, used 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. I made these for a playgroup and everyone loved them and asked for the recipe! I probably could have cut down the sugar even more and probably will next time.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks
Made them exactly as described and we couldn't help but eat them right out of the oven! SO GOOD. I let some cool and ate those too, but we both preferred them hot.

Grilled Salmon I
I made the marinade exactly as directed but didn't grill my salmon; I baked it in foil packets as suggested in a review, allowing some air in the packets for air circulation. 425 degrees for 15 minutes = perfect salmon!! I will definitely be using this recipe again for salmon, no matter how it's cooked!!
