Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
I began making this recipe as written and tweaked it bit by bit. I believe I have "perfected" it to my tastes. The main change I made, like others, was to replace some of the oil with applesauce. I omitted the water and achieved the density and texture I was after with 1/2 c. canola oil + 1/2 c. applesauce + no water. I added a tsp. or so of vanilla and increased all of the spices a bit (eyeballed them). I used both 2 tsp. baking soda + 2 tsp. baking powder. I used 2 c. white sugar + 1 c. brown sugar. Seems like a lot of changes, but all were slight and the result is the best pumpkin bread I've ever eaten. I keep making it. It freezes well. I often cut loaves in half and freeze them, wrapped in foil and then put them in a freezer bag. Take one out of the freezer the night before, just leave it on the counter and it will thaw nicely by morning.

Apple Puff Pancake

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
Four stars rather than five simply because I modified it slightly (using more apples and tossing them with some cinnamon and nutmeg before layering them in the pan - some of Caire's suggestions). I baked this in a deep, 9-inch pie pan which was the perfect size and made for a nice presentation. (Photo posted) The final product was a custard-like bottom layer with a layer of apples (they rise to the top) on top and a soft, bread-like crust. It was delicious.

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This recipe is a combination of all the things I love: a base of items that I almost always have on hand, incredible versatility, easy preparation and a satisfying final product. I made no changes to the base ingredients, but used items I had on hand instead of the bacon and a blend of cheeses rather than just cheddar. I do believe I'll make many many versions in the future.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
I made these one snowy day (because I had everything on hand) and served over pancakes. I followed the recipe exactly with fantastic results. It proved to be one of my favorite breakfasts ever. The leftover apples were heated up the next night and served over vanilla ice cream for dessert.
