Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
My husband said this is soooo delicious. (I am not able to eat it because I'm allergic to gluten, but it sure smelled wonderful and had a beautiful consistency). As advised by some reviewers, I increased the ground ginger to 3/4 tsp., used 2 c white sugar and 1 c brown sugar instead of 3 c white sugar, and added 1 tsp of vanilla. I used small loaf pans (3 x 5) and it made 5. I'm giving 4 of these away to my neighbors for Christmas and my husband has already almost finished the other one, so I'll be making more very soon. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

Simple Strawberry Syrup

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
I was looking for a strawberry sauce to serve with homemade angel food cake, and this fit the bill perfectly. I did not strain it because I wanted the strawberry chunks, and I thickened it at the end of the cooking with 1 T corn starch (mixed with 1 T water before adding to the sauce). I also added a bit of lemon juice. It was delicious and a big hit at my grandson's birthday party, served with the angel food cake and whipped cream! I put the leftover strawberry sauce in a jar in the fridge and have used it over pancakes with whipped oh my! I'll definitely be making this again!

Angel Food Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Made this cake for my grandson's 10th birthday (without the frosting). He has a dairy allergy and is unable to eat most cakes, so it was a perfect choice and he loved it. Several people said it was the best angel food cake they've ever had. It was moist with a great flavor. Quite easy to make. Served it with strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries and Simple Strawberry Syrup (recipe on this site), with whipped cream on the side (for those without a dairy allergy). Lots of compliments received. I will definitely be making this again, because my hubby is crazy about angel food cake. Thank you for this great recipe!

Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This was very yummy, rich and creamy. I would not change a thing. I had no trouble getting it to freeze as others have commented on. Perhaps it's because I put the chocolate mixture in the freezer for about 2-1/2 hours to get it really cold before mixing with the heavy cream. It was not frozen but just really cold before I put in my ice cream maker. My husband said it was "excellent". We ate it with toasted slivered almonds and a touch of whipped cream. Yum.

Lemon Berry Slushy

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
I had lots of lemons from my backyard tree and my grandson enjoys them very much, so I suggested a slushie and this fit the bill very well. It was just sweet enough, and had a nice tart flavor to it. I'm sure he'll be wanting one again when he comes home from school.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
This ice cream is delicious! It was the first recipe I tried with my new KitchenAid ice cream attachment. It is very rich and creamy. I may decrease the sugar next time to 3/4 cup. A couple of adjustments I made to the recipe: I used 3 egg yolks instead of 2 whole eggs, and I increased the half and half and the heavy cream by about 1/4 cup each. This would be delicious with apple pie or apple crisp or pumpkin pie. Wonderful by itself. A real winner! I will definitely be making this again.

Mariu's Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This sauce was wonderful! I will not buy jarred sauce again after making this. My husband (whose favorite meal is spaghetti) loved it. He liked the beefy-ness of it. I did add a can of drained diced tomatoes. I will add about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and will change the amount of sugar to 1 tablespoon next time I make it. Other than was perfect!
