Broccoli Casserole - Paul Orlousky, Reporter

1lb fresh broccoli

1/4 cup butter

2 Tbsp flour

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup milk

1-3 oz pkg cream cheese

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheese

1 cup soft bread crumbs

Cook cut up broccoli.  Drain.  Melt 1/2 butter. Blend in flour, salt and dash of pepper.  Add milk. Cook stirring constantly until thick and bubbly.  Reduce heat, blend in cream cheese until smooth.  Put broccoli in casserole dish.  Pour sauce over, mix lightly.  Top with sharp cheese. Melt remaining butter.  Toss with bread crumbs. Put on top of casserole. Bake 350 degrees, 40-45 mins.

Pumpkin Balls - Jamie Sullivan, Traffic Reporter

1 can of pumpkin puree

1 cake mix (I like yellow but spice is great, too)

Handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips(Who doesn't love a lil' chocolate!?) This step is optional.

Mix just those two ingredients together. Spray a mini muffin pan(or larger one and you can use muffin cups) and just drop in the ‘dough' --  its VERY sticky but that's what makes them so moist.

Bake at 350 for anywhere from 12 minutes – 25 depending on the size. Just check with toothpick. These are okay to cook a little more, they're good no matter what.
