    Absolutely delicious- I love the walnut taste. YUM! Be aware- its one cup of pumpkin, NOT one can. I made that mistake the first time & it was too moist. - 11/10/08

  • Love the mixed grains, but found the recipe slightly sweeter than my taste. I used fresh cranberries rather than dried, and added an extra tablespoon of flour to deal with that--maybe next time add 2T more flour and decrease sugar by 2T. - 12/4/10
