Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
really tasty! I used a large butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes, and ended up adding an extra 1/2 cup of flour to reach the right texture. I took the advice of one of the other reviewers and put all of the dough into a large zip-lock bag, cut a corner off and squeezed it out. I used kitchen shears to snip bite sized pieces into the boiling water (beware the splash back!)and let them boil until they floated to the top. After they were done cooking, in a separate pan, I heated up some olive oil and butter and sauteed some garlic. I added italian spices, salt and pepper and tossed it and some parmesan on the top of the hot gnocchi. It was SO good!!! My husband loved it, and so did I. I will make this again for sure!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This was really really YUMMY! I read a bunch of the other reviews and used some of their tips. 1) instead of 3 cups of white sugar, I used 2 cups white, 1 cup brown. 2) I used my own pumpkin puree 3) I only used 1/2 a cup of oil, and I subbed in a 1/2 of a cup of applesauce. 4) I added a tsp of pumpkin pie spice 5) I also added 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I got 2 9x5 loaves and two mini loaves. I toasted up some walnuts and put those on top of the batter before baking. The mini loaves were done in 30 minutes, the larger loaves done at 50. When they were done baking, I poked holes in the top of the bread, while it was still hot and spooned a hot syrup mixture of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon on the top. I also made a cream cheese frosting that I found here on all-recipes. It was AMAZING! I gave the two mini-loaves as a gift, and they loved it. I will be making this again!

Minestrone Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Really great recipe for soup. I added a lot more liquid. I actually used 10 cups of water and added vegetable stock bullion cubes to it, about 6 or so. Omitted the cabbage, as I've never had it that way. I also used baby red potatoes, and instead of onions I used onion powder. I also added chick peas/garbanzo beans, and rotini pasta. Super! I had so much I took some to my neighbor and she said it was the best ever.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
Really really good!!! I used half whole wheat flour for the recipe, just added a tablespoon more water. It actually gives it a better flavor than just the plain white flour. I also added 1/2 tsp rosemary to the recipe, and 1/2 cup freshly shredded parmesan to the dough. My husband nearly ate the whole thing by himself.
