"Made these last night so I would have a quick dinner all ready when I came home from work tonight -- just reheat and eat ! They turned out great -- nice and moist, and very flavorful. I may add a bit of onion to them next time for a bit more flavor, but they're very good just as is. I'll definitely make them again !"

"I was looking for a new side dish to go with the rest of the Thanksgiving meal -- I tend to make the same things every year, but I'm getting bored with them. I've never been much of a squash fan, so wasn't sure what to expect from this. I love broccoli, though, so was willing to give this a shot. Glad I did, it turned out very well. I like the idea of the orange juice, gave the veggies a nice flavor. I used a bit more juice than the recipe called for, since I didn't have the grated peel, but if I make this again, I would not add the extra. and I would also cut down a bit on the amount of butter. I ended up with a bit too much liquid, though a slotted spoon took care of that. I did not add the pecans, don't like nuts, but really enjoyed the bit of tartness added by the cranberries. All in all, this was a success, and I would not hesitate to make this again."

"I made this yesterday as a dessert after the Thanksgiving meal. It was my first experience with making pumpkin bread, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I did get a bit worried about it spilling over the loaf pan, it made quite a bit of batter, and it seemed to "grow" as it stood in the bowl before I put it in the pan. But my fears were unfounded ! It did make a nice big loaf, but no spillage. I added some extra spices -- nutmeg and ginger in addition to the cinnamon called for. Didn't measure, just eye-balled. I thought about putting a streusel topping on it, but I decided not to add anything else to an already full pan. In the end, I'm glad I didn't put the streusel on -- the cake rose so much, and the sides were pretty steep - it was like a little mountain ! lol that I think the topping would have just fallen off. It turned out great even so -- it went together quickly, easy to do in one bowl, and had a nice texture, not too dense and nicely flavored. The raisins were perfect for this. I was very pleased to get such good results on the first try with this recipe and I'll definitely make it again, maybe try chocolate chips in it next time."

"I thought this was just ok. Could have used a bit more flavor. I used chicken and plain diced tomatoes because that's what I had. But I was looking for something different to do with the pepper and onion stir-fry mixture (which I also already had on hand), and this fit the bill. I'll try it again using beef instead of chicken, which should give it a bit more flavor, and I'll use the seasoned tomatoes. I also think a bit of cheese melted on top would be just right for this dish. "
