Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping
So, I've rated this recipe before but I can't find a way to easily update/edit it, so here's another go. I wanted to update it to mention (since I am not a huge fan of cleaning my muffin tin and I don't like wasting paper & aluminum for the cups) that a single recipe makes two perfect loaves (my Pyrex dishes are 8.5"x4.5"). When I bake this recipe I use cream cheese filling (8 oz. cream cheese + 1 c. confectioner's sugar + 1 tsp vanilla) and add pecans to the streusel. Plus, I really like the flavor of the raisins with the pumpkin so I increase them to 1/2 cup. I still bake the loaves at 350 but it takes at least an hour in my oven to set up. Hope this is helpful!

Meatball Sandwich
Following the advice of other reviewers I changed the recipe ever so slightly based on my preferences (more garlic, provolone, etc.) but even the basic recipe is tasty. For a healthier alternative I did use ground turkey and although not as tasty as the beef, it'll work and it's better for the heart! Also, I am used to smaller meatballs so I actually use a measuring spoon (Tbsp) to roll out perfect 1-inch or so meatballs. It may sound weird but it works really well - and they all come out basically the same shape and size (pretty fool proof!). PS: Add some cayenne pepper for some zing!

Cream Cheese Frosting II
I halved this recipe and it was the perfect amount to cover a pumpkin spice cake baked in a 9x13 pan (the cake was left in the pan when frosted). I added a bit of cinnamon to it too to complement the fall flavors of the cake. It's easy to make this frosting sweeter, if you need to, but I found it to be a nice balance of cream cheese and sweet (in response to previous reviews).
