Pat's Mushroom Saute
Making the recipe as stated rendered fairly bland mushrooms. The balsamic vinegar lost it's bite and the mushrooms were way too soggy. I revised the recipe to double the balsamic vinegar and added worchestershire sauce in addition to 2 more garlic cloves, 3 shallots, salt and pepper. I cooked it for about half the time and the mushrooms turned out well.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
This recipe lacks adequate pumpkin flavor. For as much sugar that's in the recipe, the bread is fairly bland.

Banana Crumb Muffins
I have made this recipe numerous times for my husband, co-workers, and neighbors. One change is I add an additional banana and a teaspoon of vanilla, then I make it into a loaf instead of the muffins. The moistness is much better. This recipe is definitely a keeper!!!
