Menny's Blueberry Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
Very nice. I agree that it doesn't come out tasting especially like blueberries, but it tastes very good indeed. I subbed chipotle powder for the chili powder, which makes it substantially spicier, which I like. And I wanted it just a bit sweeter, so I added about a tablespoon of pomegranate syrup (a.k.a. pomegranate molasses), which I have around the house because I do Middle Eastern dishes occasionally; another bit of maple syrup would probably have accomplished the same thing, but the pomegranate syrup is just perfect. And I omitted the lemon juice.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Excellent. Like many of the other reviewers, I substituted unsweetened applesauce straight across for the oil, and it came out great; I can't imagine the oil would have improved it a bit. I used one cup white sugar and one cup brown, and I added one teaspoon ground ginger and 1/2 teaspoon allspice. I will definitely be making this again, and next time I'll add about a cup of golden raisins, and (since so many reviewers have assured me I can get away with it) add probably one more cup of zucchini. I shredded the zukes with the coarse-shredding disk on my Cuisinart, and I recommend that if you have one; coarse shreds seem to release their moisture more slowly.
