Moo Goo Gai Pan II
This was indeed delish. I threw in a can of baby corn I had that had been in my pantry forever and added in a couple of splashes of sesame seed oil along with the vegetable oil to give it a more distinct "Asian" flavor. Will definitely be using this recipe again!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread
Excellent recipe. Extreamly moist. Used 3 cups of zucchini, substituted in 1/2 cup w. wheat flour, substituted in lemon zest & juice from 1 lemon in place of 1/4 cup of the vegetable oil (since lemon & blueberries are a good combo). Used 2 cups FROZEN blueberries instead of fresh. I folded them in quickly from the freezer, first coating them with some flour so they don't "bleed" while the loaves are cooking. I also used the crumb topping from most helpful review from "cookiequeen". That topping was crispy and crumbly without too much sweetness.
