Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2003
Really good and this is coming from someone who doesn't like pumpkin ANYTHING. I've made it two years in a row now around Halloween. Everyone who tries it asks for the recipe. I used an equivalent amount of Pumpkin Pie spice (it seemed cheaper and easier than buying all the individual spices) and cut the sugar back to 2 cups (1 cup white sugar and 1 cup dark brown) and found it plenty sweet. I may try substituting some applesauce for some of the oil next time (as people have suggested). I just wonder if it will make it taste too much like apples.

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2003
I didn't add any red pepper flakes. So, mine was only a tiny bit spicy from the curry powder. Also some toddlers from family that eat spicy are able to eat spicy foods from a young age (not mine). -- This is a keeper for a weeknight dinner. My 2 year old son happily ate quite a lot of it. I used cubed skinless chicken breasts and canned chicken broth instead of water like on of the other reviewers suggested. I used half a teaspoon of curry powder instead of the ground corriander because I didn't have any and none of red pepper (and I thought it was spicy enough) and only 1/2 cup of peanut butter (it looked thick enough with the 1/2 cup).

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2002
A good weekday recipe. Very quick. I don't have a food processor so I just added some thickener at the end. I also drained and rinsed the beans and drained the chilis. I thought the cinnamon taste was a little strange. I think I'll leave it out or reduce the amount next time.
