Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I made this mostly by the exact recipe but because so many people said to use applesauce instead of oil I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup apple sauce. Also, because a number of people indicated to add extra spices because it wasn't very pumpkin-y I added an extra teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, a couple of dashes of nutmeg and cinnoman. I cooked it at 375 for 65 minutes (I have a gas stove so most of my cooking requires higher temps) and the bread came out nice. Looked pretty and smelled wonderful. Now for the bad - it REALLY did NOT taste like anything. The spices gave it a wonderful aroma but this bread really did not have a good taste or flavor. It was too bad because with the great smell I was looking forward to a tasty bread but this did not meet my expectations.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
This dish is wonderful. Just made it this evening and it had plenty of veggies which is always good. I used a whole packet of mushrooms instead of just 4. The dish was very tasty and the chicken came out quite good. I would say to make it a bit healthier, only use 1 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup milk. Some people said they don't like the soupiness of the dish, but I loved it! One last thing - I added cayenne pepper for a bit of spice and some onion powder and topped the dish off with fresh cilantro. The cilantro really really worked with this dish and is a MUST try! Hope everyone else enjoyed this dish as much as I did :)
