Addictive Pumpkin Muffins
There isn't nearly enough cinnamon in them and they need some pumpkin pie spice to give them flavor.I halved the recipe and made them with 1/2 cup dark brown sugar instead of 2 cups of white (for 18 muffins). I don't like things particularly sweet and two cups of sugar is way too sweet to be called a muffin. I usually only put 1/4 cup sugar in a dozen muffins and they are just right. Even though I reduced the sugar and used a very moist dark brown sugar, the batter was very dry. I had to add another 1/4 cup of applesauce or so. The other thing I had to adjust was the cooking time. I made a dozen standard muffins and the rest were mini muffins. The mini muffins were done in 15 and the standard in about 18.

Oregon Salmon Patties
The first time I made these, they were pretty good. I read the reviews and left out the drained liquid. The next time I made them, I didn't and they turned out very crumbly and the patties fell apart. The taste was fine, so I ended up using the salmon crumbles to top a salad. I gave them another try and made them exactly as the recipe stated up to the point where I put the 3/4 cup liquid back in. It was so soupy that I couldn't even form patties. I had to add in about 2 cups of crumbs to get them to stick together. I used a mixture of multigrain bread crumbs and panko seasoned with dill because that's what I had on hand. They turned out fine. They weren't amazing but I was able to get 12 smallish patties out of the mix. There are better recipes out there. I think I'll pass on this one next time.

Fig Cake II
This is a review of the cake only (not the icing). I typically don't like things overly sweet, so the only change I made was to skip making the buttermilk icing. It was sweet enough without. It's a delicious, spicy, moist cake. I used home canned figs and it turned out wonderful. I used a bundt cake pan and had some trouble getting it out of the pan. Make sure you grease and flour the pan very thoroughly.
