Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
Love this! Always make two larger 8 x 5 loaves. One with 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, one without. Follow other reviewers by cutting back a little on the white sugar (reduce 1/2 -3/4 cup) and substituting 1 cup of white sugar for 1 cup of brown sugar. Prefer to add the splash of vanilla and always add 1 tsp more cinnamon. When I am in a rush, I add all the wet ingredients and sugars, beat well; add dry leavener and spices to distribute evenly, then add flour and mix thoroughly. This is a convenient short cut and has not affected the outcome, yet. Thanks for the recipe!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
Will definitely make this again and I used the recipe as written, but increased to 6 servings and let Allrecipes site adjust the ingredient amounts for me so that I could feed a family of five. May have had a touch over 1 1/2 lbs of meat.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
This was the best Turkey breast ever. I made the turkey breast for Thanksgiving and it was eaten before the honeybaked ham...the real Honey Baked Ham. No leftovers at all and everyone wanted more. I preferred poultry spices like sage to the onion soup mix but no matter what you do you will have a very moist bird. I did use the bed of vegetables (carrots, celery and onion) to the base under my breast and I also added some,maybe 1/2 cup, of chicken broth to the bottom. Rubbed the preferred herbs and spices under the skin and cooked on medium high for about 4-5 hours!

Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I thought this was a great recipe. I am not a big swiss cheese person so I used a mix of italian blend, mexican blend and a little cheddar (not too much because of the amount of oil that sometimes results from cheddar). I believe that the best part of this recipe is that it is totally versatile. Do what you like with regard to the meat and cheese and it should probably turn out well. This time I used sauteed onion, salami, ham, and crispy bacon (chopped up, of course). I would definitely make it again and I would use whatever I had on hand for the meat/cheese ingredients. I found that when I doubled the recipe and added 2 extra eggs, plus 1/2 cup additional half and half, I was able to make two large quiches.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
This recipe was wonderful! I doubled it and it made 42 using a golf ball size icecream scoop. By the way, I prefer mine with semi-sweet chocolate chips so I added them as I was mixing the milk/vanilla mixture into the flour/salt/coconut mixture. They turned out great! I did follow other reviews and added just a touch of almond extract, but I do not think it would be necessary, just a matter of what you like. Great recipe and I will definitely make it again!

For a quick fudge, I think this is great. I would add that the time for my ingredients to melt was only about two minutes. I just watched for "shiney" chips which signifies that they are melting and then removed and stirred until the butter was completely melted into the mixture and everything was smooth. I will definitely keep this recipe! Thanks, Dana!

Creole Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
Could not find my cajun spice and was in the middle of a recipe which called for it. This was very good and it smells better than my store bought brand of cajun spice. Maybe a side by side comparison would be beneficial if I ever have the time to do it.

Curried Beef a la Tim

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
I was in a real bind because I had stew beef thawed out and no time to make a beef stew or soup (which require a lot of cook time to come out tender and flavorful). This was well received by my family. We would definitely have it again. While I tried to stay with the original ingredients and measurements the first time, I would definitely add some more spice next time. I also cut my meat and apples into much smaller cubes. In my humble opinion and that of my children and husband, I would add more salt, more curry, probably some garlic, more of the tomato paste/water combination (to allow for more gravy), and I would add some medium hot sauce, such as red hot (medium heat level according to the bottle). This was very good and I am so glad that Kitchen Geisha shared it with the allrecipes communities. I do not know what I would have had for dinner if not for this website and my family really liked it (which, to be quite honest, surprised me.)
