Pumpkin Gingerbread
This is delicious! I always read a number of the reviews before I try a new recipe, to see how others may have tweaked it to get it to the next level, so, this is what I did differently: I used 2 cups of sugar. I baked a 9 x 7 loaf at 325 for about 80 - 90 minutes and it came out perfectly, as did the 3 smaller ones baked for about 40 - 50 minutes. I followed the rest of the recipe, but I think the amount of spices could easily be increased by maybe 50%. Just a great way to start off the fall. I plan on using this recipe again - soon!

Restaurant-Style Chicken Scampi
I've been making this for many years, with just a few minor changes: I add a few sliced mushrooms and some fresh basil; I just sauté the chicken, seasoned with a little salt and pepper, in evoo without the flour; mix together the cooked chicken, cooked vegies and cooked pasta (I usually use penne). I don't see any need to add the pasta water or chicken broth. Rather than jarred sauce I make my own, a very good one to try is Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce on AR submitted by Dawn Carter. I don't use the fresh parsley, just a couple of shakes of Italian seasoning. This turns out really good; add a salad and voila! Dinner is served!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch
This is divine comfort food! Based on other reviews I tweaked it ever so slightly: used PAM rather than butter to grease the pan, added about an ounce of cream cheese to the sauce and added about 1/2 cup cheddar cheese to the sauce. I also made about 50% more, just eyeballing the ingredients until it looked about right. This completely filled an 11 x 13 pan and 4 people totally devoured this, leaving *no* leftovers for today! Yeah probably a bit off the charts for fat and calories, etc., so this will not be a weekly meal, but I will definitely be making this again.
