Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
Although very moist,I am quite dissapointed with the bland,blah flavor of these muffins,despite the full TB of pumpkin pie spice...which I thought would be ok with 2+c of flour.The pie spice was not outdated,which can happen incidentally.But remember,pumpkin itself IS very bland! I too,cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and doubled the streusel topping.If you're looking for true spiced pumpkin-apple muffins,for an autum treat or breakfast,then this is not the one.I'm an excellent baker and cook too...Maybe I'll find something I like better,and post it!

Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I just made these.The 4 star rating attracted me.Thankfully,I made a tray of 8 cookies,"just to try." They were so bland,despite my adding extra cherry juice and almond extract.They probably could use some brown sugar in place of all white sugar.I'm going to try and salvage the rest of the batter and add some coconut and chocolate chips to the batter.I'm not sure why anyone would call these cookies chewy.They're actually quite dry.We'll see how it goes!

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
These are wonderful!!A great change from the usual chocolate/vanilla flavors.I do use a little extra ginger and cinnamon and I put 2 whole eggs in,rather than the called for 1 1/2.Batter is quite thin,but before I put it into the cupcake tins,I let it sit for just a few minutes.It thickens a bit and is easier to handle.These are always a hit for the fall and holidays!!And you can decorate them so cute according to the seasons too.Some say these sink in the middle after they cool. I gently tap the filled muffin tin on the counter before going into the oven-like I do with any cake I bake-this removes the air in the batter....and I've never had them sink down any time I've made them
