Pumpkin Pie
AWESOME!!! This was my first attempt at homemade pumpkin pie and it was a home run! I did make the following changes: used 1/2 c brown sugar and 1/4 c white sugar, used 1.5 t pumpkin pie spice in place of the listed spices, used 1 T honey and 1 T molasses instead of the corn cyrup. I had to bake it for 70 minutes on 325 instead of the listed 30. The batter is VERY runny and I was worried, but it firmed up perfectly! Thanks for the fantastic recipe.

Juicy Roasted Chicken
This is a simple recipe and it's simply delicious! I am the sort of person who likes to tink around with recipes and change them a bit. This one I left alone and it was PERFECT. Hubby is a bit of a chicken snob, and he said it was the best chicken he's ever tasted.

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes
Perfect! For a pumpkin dessert, they are very light and soft. Delightful, really. I did use 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar and also used 1 t orange extract instead of orange juice, but aside from that didn't change it. It made 18 regular/full cupcakes and 12 mini bite sized ones. The large ones were done at 25 minutes and the bite size ones in 10. I used all of the frosting on the 18 large cupcakes, but I tend to load mine on fancy with big piping tips. The mini, bite sized ones most certainly didn't go to waste because they didn't have frosting! The orange zest is a must, and next time I might try adding more cream cheese to cut the sweetness. I realized when I was passing the recipe on that I forgot to add vanilla to the frosting. The orange extract was enough, really. Took them to a baby shower and everyone wanted the recipe. Thanks!
