Pecan Pie Without the Sugar Shock

I was really hoping someone would submit a pecan pie recipe suitable for diabetics; not one that's necessarily without sugar or some kind of syrup but one that uses something like stevia along with the syrup or sugar. I don't care what anyone else says, sugar substitutes are just not as good as sugar.

Fresh made mozzarella in SEA?

I don't live where you do, but we are still limited as to what we can get even in the best markets in my area. So I'm thinking of making my own fresh mozarella; maybe there's a reciped on the chow website, but there's also a simple, fairly uncomplicated recipe on the mother earth news web site. Just type in mother earth news mozarella and I believe you'll find it.


Pico de Gallo

I like reading all the comments and suggestions for possible additions. I make pico de gallo all the time, adding various ingredients just to see if I like the additions. Sometimes I do, other times, not so much. For years I made every recipe exactly as printed and was very timid about being experimental. Not any more.

The shrimp salsa sounds fantastic, I intend to make it as soon as I can.
