Recipe Search = fail

I'm having a heck of a time using the recipe search function. It seems that it is not searching properly. My search criteria is: community picks & pumpkin. I get 40 recipes, most of which have nothing to due with pumkin. Such as Hard Cooked Eggs, Lime Aioli and Dukkah, which is a lovely recipe that I will now have to try, but doesn't help me in my quest. I also do not get email answers to my Hotline questions.

Helen, two quick updates for you. One, we realize that the current recipe search results are not exactly right. There is a complex technical reason for this (which I won't bore you with!) and we are working on it. Two, we are currently testing a bunch of pumpkin recipes to address your exact need. Stay tuned for the results.

My search for recipes has been unsuccessful as well. It searches for the key word and newest recipe (always as default) and I get back random recipes.

It's very frustrating! Never mind the really really long lag time waiting for the site response, only to get random recipes. Granted I've stumbled across some great recipes this way, but I'm on the hunt for a perfect pumpkin pie for Turkey Day!
