Healthier Pumpkin Bread
I'm sorry to give this a low rating, but it didn't come out well in my bread machine. I'll have to update my rating when I make it again in my regular oven. I used half the amount of sugar (brown sugar instead of white), and it was still quite sweet, so I'll with that proportion in the future. Also, I used one mashed banana to replace about 1/4 cup oil. The flavors were great, but the texture was kind of dense and wet, but that is likely due to my bread machine rather than the recipe itself. Will try again!

Grilled Gorgonzola-Basil Burgers
I made many substitutions, but it still turned out great! The ground beef I used was a little too lean when I used half of it to make another kind of burger, so for this, I added about 1/3 of a portion of fattier ground beef (maybe just 10% fat, though). I'd make it with a fattier and more finely ground cut next time than the one I used, though. In addition to the seasonings the original recipe called for, I added Italian seasoning breadcrumbs (just about 1 Tbspn for a 6-burger portion), since I had some extra in the pantry. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon per burger portion. I wanted to make this a pure basil burger, so instead of mixing gorgonzola in it, I put slices of extra sharp cheddar on top. Everyone loved it!

Restaurant-Style Potato Salad
I made this for our July 4th weekend BBQ, and it was good. I have to admit that I tend not to like potato salad, so I may not be the best judge of the recipe, but wanted to make something traditional for my Japanese friend. I made it without the pimento, parsley, sugar, or pickle relish; and with substitutions of coconut vinegar for white wine vinegar, red onion for white, yogurt for the mayo, plus a few dollops of mayo and dried dill. It needed a little more kick, though. Maybe some more dill and celery next time, plus paprika?
