Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2004
Without a doubt, this is THE classic pumpkin pie recipe. I didn't change anything except I cut back on the evaporated milk a little. It's not necessary to adjust the seasonings at all... you can't even taste the cloves in the final result (for those of you who don't like cloves).

Gyoza

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2004
I have been making gyoza since I was little kid, and I have a few tips to add to this recipe. Cabbage should be finely chopped. Onions should be green onions, minced. For extra fiber, you can also add finely ground carrot. It is not necessary to pre-cook the vegetables, if you finely chop everything. It is more authentic to use round gyoza wrappers, not wonton wrappers - but sometimes they are hard to find. The way to use round gyoza wrappers is: put a tablespoon of filling inside, wet one-half of the edge of the wrapper with water, fold in half. It should look like a half-circle. Then, crease the round edge about 5 times. Think pinch and fold. It's really quite easy but hard to explain. Look at some pictures of gyoza online if you don't understand. Keep the heat to medium after the first batch. It is important to keep a consistent heat so that the gyoza don't burn, but cook the insides thoroughly. It is important to add the water at the end to steam it. Put a lid on after you add the water. Also, making gyoza is very time consuming and messy. Your kitchen will be splattered with a layer of fine grease afterwards. If you want, you can make them outside or in your garage using an electric skillet. This will keep your house clean and from smelling like grease afterwards. Also, heat the soy and vinegar at the end and sprinkle a little cayenne on top for extra zing.

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2004
This was fabulous. I used 2 cups organic chicken broth plus 4 cups of water instead of 6 cups of plain water. I also left out the chick peas since I didn't have any and used smaller navy beans, which I think is a better choice than white kidney beans. I also left out the celery. I was a hesistant to use 1 1/2 tsp cardamom, so I used a little less. I didn't want to overpower the soup, but it was fine and probably could have gone with the whole amount. I also added 1/4 tsp curry powder and 1 1/2 tsp salt. I served it with some rice, cilantro and cayenne pepper. Excellent!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2004
These were great. However, I had to add 1/3 cup soy milk to achieve the proper batter consistency, while cutting back on the amount of oil a little bit. I also added 1 tsp vanilla and 1 cup frozen blueberries. Also, I substituted 1/3 cup of the flour with oat bran. And of course, I used sucanat (evaporated cane juice) instead of white sugar. Baked for 40 minutes. Very moist and delicious!

Pineapple Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2004
This was a very successful recipe. However, I substituted 1/3 cup canola oil for the butter. I also used sucanat (evaporated cane juice) instead of brown sugar, cutting the amount down to 3/4 cup. I used pecans instead of walnuts, since that's what I had on hand. I also left off the glaze. I ended up with a very attractive loaf of zucchini bread that tastes great.
