Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
I have been making this recipe for a good while now. If the spices are doubled or tripled, it also works as a GlutenFree recipe for a number of GF flours. I tend to replace a couple of the eggs with ground flax and no one is the wiser. I've also used banana for the oil before and just greased my pans extra well. You can tweak this so many ways and it still turns out great! Base recipes like this are timeless. Thank you for sharing. :)

Winter Squash Rolls
I've made this recipe at least 20x now. I get rave reviews and requests. I have used white and wheat, both work great. I always eye the flour anyway so it's implied to judge flour by the feel since flour can be more or less moisture dense. I split the butternut squash in half, scoop out the seeds/ strings, oil both halves all around and bake on 350 flesh down until a knife goes through easily. This retains more nutrients and is easy to scoop out the right amount. As soon as it's cool enough to scoop, I put scooped squash and all the ingredients except flour, yeast and the water it proofs in, into the blender and purée it. Since the squash is hot I don't need to heat the milk. I'm proofing the yeast while pureeing (I add a bit of sugar to the yeast water to speed it up). I then pour the wet mix in a bowl, whisk in the proofed yeast and then start adding flour. I get 18 gigantic rolls. I've also used this to make hamburger buns for my husband's sandwiches. This recipe is fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing.
