Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Pears
I had pears that needed to be used and found this recipe. The pears and sweet potatoes are a great combination and for that I'm giving 4 stars. My objection is there is no need for any sugar and certainly not 1/4 cup. I used none and would have preferred a little less sweetness even then. Perhaps I was looking for a vegetable side dish and this is more of a dessert. I didn't think vanilla sounded good either - so left that out and substituted a bit of cardamon for the cinnamon and nutmeg. Also like other reviewers I recognized a whole cup of evaporated milk would make this very runny, so just poured in a little, perhaps 1/4 cup.

Tilapia Scampi
DH and I both liked this recipe which was very easy and used ingredients I almost always have on hand. What more can I ask for? I followed several of the suggestions - used less butter, added dijon and a pinch of cayenne, and served it over pasta. I do believe it would have been a little boring without the additional spices. With those modifications I'll definitely make it again. And I cooked it in the toaster oven - no need to heat up the kitchen on a warm day.

Classic Bran Muffins
This will be my go to recipe from which I start to experiment, adding spices, fruits, molasses, etc. But for my first attempt I made the recipe exactly as written except I used All Bran cereal rather than plain wheat bran. I didn't think about the fact that All Bran has sugar in it. This gave the muffins the sweetness of many bakery muffins but I prefer less sweet. In the future if I use the cereal rather than plain bran I will reduce the sugar to 1/3-1/2 cup. Other than that the texture, moisture content and everything was just perfect. Baking time for me was just 15 minutes.
