Healthier Carrot Cake III
Delicious. I substituted coconut for the nuts, because I had it, not the ,on hands. I used plain flower not whole wheat flower. I also substituted a basic white icing instead of the icing provided. Easy to follow recipe. It would be nice if there was a sub heading for the icing. It tasted very light, carroty, and sweet.

Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding I
The rice pudding looked dark, and it had the texture of oatmeal, not a custard, and it tasted too sweet. I was hoping for a milky custard dessert. Perhaps using soy milk changed the recipe to something less than it would have been with regular milk?

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
Two deliciously rich and moist pumpkin bread loaves resulted from this easy to follow recipe and they did improve with age. Fabulous. To make the bread more dessert like I may add brown sugar with cinnamon and a little butter mixed together to the top of the loaves just before I put them in the oven.
