Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
These were delicious! Great recipe. I also substituted about half the sugar for applesauce and they still turned out well

Greek Lemon Cake
I loved this cake! I did cook it for only 50 minutes as per suggestions and it turned out well. I thought it was not a very sweet cake and was perfect. I don't like super sweet cakes. I would suggest more lemon zest or a little more lemon juice if you especially like lemon as the lemon flavor was light. I topped it with a frosting of mixed whipped cream, lemon zest and powdered sugar. I did substitute buttermilk for yogurt, but that's a pretty even substitution (and it was what I had around). Great job Carol!

Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash and Sage
Great recipe, however, I don't think it needs the cream. I added a little bit of milk, but that's about it and it was super creamy. The sage is fantastic. I didn't roast the squash, but shredded it in the food processor and then just loosely sauced it.
