Disney's Ratatouille
Great dish, good way to use up summer garden veggies. Some advice: Make sure you salt the eggplant prior to using to draw out the moisture or the ratatouille will become wet and soggy! Salt each side of the sliced eggplant and let it sit for 30 min, then rinse off and pat dry. If you don't have time for this you shouldn't add as much water. I used some spaghetti sauce instead of tomato paste (didn't have it) and again, did not add as much water. 1 tablespoon of minced garlic was plenty. Thanks for the great recipe!

Upside Down Pear Gingerbread Cake
I have never reviewed on this site, but I felt compelled to after trying this recipe. The flavor is wonderful! My cake came out moist, not dry at all. This was also very easy with very little clean up. I did use a regular round cake pan (the caramel will probably leak with a springfoam), and I lined the bottom with parchment paper so that the glaze didn't stick. I couldn't appreciate the pear flavor as much as I would have liked, so next time I will use fresh instead of canned. This will be a staple cake for the holidays! Thanks for posting.

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili
A good basic chili, but you can't even taste the butternut squash. Big waste of a delicious squash. I would recommend just adding a second can of beans for filler. You'll save a lot of time.
