Pumpkin Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
Amazing! These were a hit after dinner last night. Now, I happen to like reviews that rate the recipe as-is but also offer potential changes so I can try out variations. These are delicious as muffins but I also used a cinnamon cheese frosting to make cupcakes. I also like to substitute applesauce for half the oil in most recipes. The pumpkin pie spice could probably be reduced if you don't want as strong a flavor but I liked it as-is. This will be my official go to recipe in the Fall.

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2014
If there was a rating higher than five stars I would give it. Amazing!!! I do like to substitute pumpkin pie spice for half the cinnamon but that's just personal preference. I could eat the whole pan myself.

Ziti Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
I rarely write reviews but had to say thank you for this one. Here are the alterations I made: -I cubed two raw chicken breasts and sauteed them in good olive oil and some minced garlic (the kind that comes in a jar). -I boiled the pasta for a bit then added the frozen broccoli to the same pot. I skipped the artichokes -I mixed the cornstarch with a little cold water first, I used half-and-half instsead of cream, and I halved the chicken broth. I didnt measure the parmesan but probably doubled the amount called for. -I'm a salt fiend so I used some salt for seasoning at almost every step. It came out delicious!!! My fiance is a really picky eater and he practically inhaled his. I firmly believe that recipes are not meant to force us to follow them exactly, but instead to be used as a reference point that gets tweaked to our own tastes. Next time I will omit the chicken broth and use two boullion cubes and water.

This is my official go-to recipes for parties and potlucks. I have ALWAYS gotten rave reviews and I love them myself too. I only use one package of spinach but everything else is exactly as stated.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
This is the first time I've ever made a cake. It came out amazing! I used golden raisins since I prefer the taste, and based on other reviews I swapped 1/4 cup of the oil with applesauce. I topped the cake with the Cream Cheese frosting II from this site, and then I sprinkled walnuts on top to cut the rich taste a bit. Really, this was perfect. Great taste, great moist consistency, and dense like a carrot cake should be. This will definitely be my go-to recipe for carrot cake. My boyfriend's ten year old son could barely wait for it to be done before he grabbed some.
