Carrot Raisin Bread or Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2005
Great bread! This was a real crowd pleaser and have made it many times since finding the recipe. No changes. No substitutions. It's terrific but best as toast. Thanks and enjoy!

Cream of Chicken with Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2004
Went looking for a cream of turkey soup recipe and found this one. I just substituted leftover turkey from Thanksgiving for the chicken. Simmered the turkey bones; legs, thighs, breast for 45 min in chicken stock (instead of water and bouillion) and followed the recipe. Other substitutions were butter for margerine and half and half for milk. The result was fantastic. This was a great way to use up leftover turkey. Everyone loved it, we'll be making it again and again. Thanks and enjoy!

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
WOW, who needs turkey! Awesome cranberry sauce. We'll never ever eat canned again. I followed the recipe almost exactly, used 1/2 cup dried figs and 1/2 cup dried appricots for the dried mixed fruit. Also added a pinch or 2 of ground clove. Everyone loved it. 5 stars all the way!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
Made this twice. First time, doubled the amount of crisp as many suggested but found I like more apples to crisp. Second time, used delicious apples and splashed them with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, used only 2 tablespoons sugar, a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon, substituted apple cider for the water and topped it with the crisp from the recipe. Also, prepared it in a deep ceramic cassarol and baked for 1 1/3hrs. Amazing desert and was a big hit with the family! Thanks and enjoy!

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
This is delicious! Threw in another cinnamon stick, orange sliced about a 1/4 inch, and a few more cloves. Simmered in a pot on the stove for about 30 min before serving. Everyone got an orange slice and a cinnamon stick. It was a big hit. The only complaint is that it went too fast. Will have to double the recipe when I make it again at the holidays. Thanks and enjoy.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
Great soup! Perfect for a chilly autumn day. Used some suggestions and roasted 2 lg. butternut and a lg. onion for about an hour, until I could see the squash start to brown. In a blender pureed squash, onion, cream cheese along with 4 tablespoons butter, and a 48oz can of chicken stock. By the way, 1 package of cream cheese was enough to make it thick and creamy. I was a little heavy handed with the peppers but I do like it spicey.. :-) Made 8 qts and sent some to Mom, sis and the neighbors. All agreed it hit the spot. Made it twice before writing the review. Thanks and enjoy.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
Well the results are in and we have a winner! Made 2 9x5 loafs, halved them and gave them out for reviews. It's unanimous! This is great pumpkin bread. I did use some of the suggestions offered. Used only 2/3-cup oil, 2/3-apple sauce instead of water, substituted 1-cup brown sugar for 1 of the white, added 1/4 teaspoon more of cinnamon, and ginger. Also poked holes in top of bread and dripped in the butter/cinnamon/brown sugar mix and glazed top of loaves with the leftovers using a brush. Bake time was 1 1/4 hour. This bread is awesome! Great recipe and thanks for the suggestions.
