Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins
I was looking for a great, moist pumpkin muffin recipe and I came across this one. I couldn't have found a better one. When I cook muffins I only use the large muffin pans and a single recipe makes me 12 large muffins. I've made this recipe twice now and the first time I followed the recipe exactly but the second time I only used 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice and 1 tsp of ground cinnamon. The flavor was more mellow. I also added a full bag of white baking chips and about a cup of chopped pecans. The white chocolate is not overpowering and gives the muffins a touch of vanilla with each bite. This is definately a favorite of ours!

Three Cheese Manicotti II
This was a great base recipe that I just tried but will use much more. Here's what I did: I used 2 cups of cottage cheese (blended) instead of ricotta. I also grated fresh parmesan instead of the shake kind. I chopped up one bunch of fresh basil in place of dried (gives such fresh wow flavor). With the sauce I added 1 pound of ground beef. My husband always likes to have meat with his meals. The outcome was so yummy and it was very easy to make. Oh, another thing I did was stuff the manicotti noodles while they were uncooked, then I put about 1-2 cups of sauce in bottom of pan, placed the stuffed noodles on top and then poured the remaining sauce over noodles. I then baked in 400 degrees for about 45-1 hour(covered). You can poke the noodles with fork to check for doneness. The noodles absorb the sauce. Thanks for the easy, great recipe!
