Help! LOL

I was in the supermarket this AM and bought a box of pumpkin quick bread and saw the recipe on the side for pumpkin cheesecake muffins ( However, I'm home now and realize I don't have the 2tsp of grated lemon peel. From scouring the internet, it appears I can use 1tbs of lemon juice in replace of ½tsp of peel. Does that sound about right? AND--do I need to do something different to the recipe because of the liquid? This would be for the filling part. I don't necessarily want it to be too lemony, as I'm the only one who likes lemon anyway, lol, but I don't want to kill the recipe either. ;)

That will get the job done, and it is not enough liquid to throw the recipe off.

hunk 'o, hunk 'o burnin' heartburn!
