Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers
Absolutely delicious. RAVE review from my guests, including the men. Per other's suggestions: I sauted the garlic and onion and then added the squeezed out, chopped spinach to the onions and garlic before incorporating all the veggies into the cold eggs and turkey. I added a squeeze of lemon, a tsp. or so of salt and a couple dashes of pepper as well as a tiny bit of worchestershire sauce. Probably added 2 or 3 oz more of feta than the recipe called for. I also refrigerated the patties before grilling on a charcoal grill. I suggest serving these on onion sandwich buns with lettuce, tomato, & mayo. My guests were all so excited when I suggested serving them on the onion buns...and seemed to think they "made" these burgers.

Pumpkin Gingerbread
Holy YUMMY recipes, Batman. But definitely cut the sugar down to 2 cups. And I used half brown and half white sugar and 19 ounces of pumpkin because I had it in the fridge already. Everything else I did exactly as the recipe called for and the loaves turned out perfectly! I'll keep this one for sure.

Apple Dumplings II
I love apple dumplings, but this recipe was disappointing. The big issues were: 1.) The sauce was not good. It could've been a cinnamon-y flavor carrier, but instead it was like a gelantinous overly-sweet goo. It need cinnamon and nutmeg badly.The red food coloring made me feel like I was eating melted candy. Not good melted candy, either. 2.) Unless you're looking for a biscuit-type of consistency, this pastry was much too soft. The biggest reason is probably that there's just too much baking powder in this recipe. If you use this amount, that salty, almost carbonated flavor you'll taste is leavening. I'd use 1/2 tsp. if I made these again. 3. I felt the baking time and temp was off. I used Jonathan apples and they were still very firm after 35 min. while the pastry on the bottom of the dumpling was still slightly doughy. Maybe trying a higher baking temp (400 for the first 15 min and then 375 for the last 15) would make the apple nice and soft and the pastry crispy.
