Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
It was delicious! For me, the key was using my immersion blender to get a smooth consistency. A food processor might work as well. Next time I might try using half and half so as to avoid using anything that comes in a can. For Thanksgiving, I think nothing should come in a can ...

Chef John's Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
It was delicious, especially for having such simple ingredients. I made the recipe mostly as stated. I used Imagine Low Sodium Vegetable Broth and pinch of dried thyme. When I first combined the ingredients, I was really worried it would turn out horribly due to widely varying flavors. After simmering for several minutes, the flavors really started coming together though. I ended up having to add quite a bit of salt, which I expected; I usually have to add extra salt for the broth I used. I also chopped the mushrooms instead of sliced them. It took a little more time, but I really enjoy having many small bits of mushrooms rather than a few larger pieces. Even though the broth had an orange color, the gravy came out the usual grayish color of mushroom gravy after simmering, which was a relief. (I was worried it would look unnatural.) I will definitely keep and use this recipe. It probably made about 3 and a half cups of gravy. If anybody has used the vegetarian mushroom gravy recipe that calls for tablespoons of soy sauce, I would give up that recipe and use this. This can easily be made vegan as well.

Butterscotch Pudding I

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
I used this recipe as a base for a vegan version. It did turn out good. I used full fat coconut milk (from a can) instead of regular milk. I also substituted Ener-G egg replacer for the egg and margarine for the butter. (I would like to try coconut oil next time.) I also used light brown sugar, because that it what I had on hand. The flavor was amazing, but I did notice a bit of a starchy texture to it. I'm not sure if this is because I used the full amount of corn starch or because I used the egg replacer, which is starch-based. Next time, I will change them around a bit (first by removing some of the corn starch) and maybe try using real eggs instead. I think the coconut milk added a nice flavor. (It doesn't taste strongly of coconut, but it does taste different from cow's milk, thus adding a little flavor.) Over all, I am very satisfied with this recipe. For those having trouble with lumps, make sure to stir the dry ingredients together well before adding the liquid. Also, I constantly whisked it, and I had no problems whatsoever.
