Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
OMG!!! Fantastic recipe, will become one of my classics. I took the suggestion of others who substituted the apple sauce and I prefer a "spicier" cake and add 2 tsps. of pumpkin pie spice along with the cinnamon called for. I think I'll add cloves next time. Great cake texture, moist, yet not oily, good crumb. I used the Nordic Ware Platinum Collection 10-15 cup Bundt pan (best bundt pan ever made!) and cooked for 50 minutes. By the way, 2 cups of Pumpkin is one 16 oz can.

Really Good Pasta Sauce!

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Great Sauce with suggestions: Usually I only try recipes with a lot of positive reviews, but this one seemed to have what I know is the basis for good spaghetti sauce. I've been trying to find a knock out one, and I'm still searching. This one is really very good but still missing something. I think the Italian sausage and wine you use may be the crucial point for taste. I also added a minced carrot as it really adds a natural sweetness to sauce. After cooking it still needed some body so I also added four slices of cooked chopped bacon and some ground parmesan. I think that perked it up quite well and I'm really pleased with it now. Maybe some red pepper while cooking the meat? Also I think a Dutch Oven with tight lid is crucial as there is not much fluid in the recipe. Update: OMG! Perfect the next day, flavors matured and it was fantastic. Have been comparing it to other high rated sauces and fennel seeds seems to be the only other ingredient that might be tried.
