Pumpkin Dessert Squares
Generally two cups of pumpkin is substituted for a small can of pumpkin. Often fresh pumpkin is a bit more liquid than canned so you may want to let it drain in a colander lined with paper towel or a coffee filter to get a closer consistency. You could also add a bit of bisquick to the pumpkin to thicken if you don't want to drain. Yours will be slightly different, no matter what you do.

Slow-Cooker Twenty-Garlic Chicken Dinner
I made this using boneless skinless breast. Since I had not started it early in the day, I cooked on high for about 2 1/2-3 hours. I peeled my garlic cloves, but used the full 20 called for and placed them on the onion slices. Instead of making the seasoning paste and rubbing on chicken, I gave the chicken a quick drizzle with olive oil and sprinkled seasoning on top, then placed chicken on top of onion/garlic as instructed. After cooking on high about 3 hours, I removed the meat and pureed the onion and garlic in meat juices with an immersion blender. This made a wonderful sauce which I drizzled over the chicken. It was delightful and not overly garlicy, as some suggested. I will definitely make this again.

Leprechaun Hat Cookies
to Sharai: You put the marshmallow onto the hot cookie so that it melts a bit to adhere. Then, after they cool, you pour the warmed, tinted frosting over all to make the marshmallow and cookie a unified green hat. I would suggest setting cookies onto a rack sitting on a baking sheet before pouring the glaze over so the excess can drip off, leaving a clean edge. These are cute but would be labor intensive.

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookies
I made this recipe several times with kiss choclates. Though good, they are a bit salty for my taste. They are easy and palataable, thus three spoons, which I consider average. For barely more effort, I prefer starting from scratch with flour, etc., to avoid the salty taste.
