Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Simply incredible. The only changes I made were to do 1/2 cup of oil with 1/2 cup of applesauce (I used one of my son's unsweetened applesauce cups), and I did 2 cups of white sugar and 1 cup of brown. I think I will modify my banana bread recipe to more closely match this one because it was just that good. You cannot go wrong this one, and it does not need modifications!

Lori's Beef and Spaghetti Macaroni

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I rarely post a review, but this recipe was so disgusting I had to say something. The mayo is a VERY strong flavor in this, and I enjoy the taste of mayo. It was also very much unnecessary. I doubled the macaroni and added cheese on top, and thank goodness I did or I don't think I would have been able to choke this down. I will never make this again. Simply changing the mayo to low fat sour cream would have improved this recipe immensely.

Jollof Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I chose this dish because my husband is West African and I thought it would be fun to give him a new take on Jollof rice. Unfortunately, this did not go over well. It didn't have the spice or rich flavor of Ghanaian jollof rice. The tomato flavor was overpowering, and it would have been better with bellpeppers than the green beans. If I were to make it again, I would double the cayenne pepper, half the tomatos (exclude the tomato paste or use fresh tomatos) and use more rice and water. I also fried 1/2 the chicken and served it on the side for hubby. I won't be making this again - I'll stick to the tried and true.

Sweet Potato Casserole VI

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
This is truly one of the best dishes I've ever tasted. Perfect for the holidays, I've used it for two years in a row and it's now a staple for Thanksgiving in my house. My only suggestion would be DO NOT CHANGE A THING. It's perfectly delicious as is.

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
This recipe is so good, that this is my first time submitting a review of any of the dozens of recipes I've used on AllRecipes. I added a third chicken breast, used lite coconut milk, and threw in 1/2 pound of shrimp during the last 10 minutes of cooking. It was very spicy, but very good. It was my first time trying Thai food (I don't even like Thai food!), and it was a keeper.
