I am learning to cook Indian food because my husband is from India. It isn't easy, but I am learning more every day!
My cooking tragedies
Some of my attempts at cooking Indian food have not been so successful. They have ended in tears on my part and my husband eating meals that didn't taste so good!

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes
These mashed potatoes were good. What I liked best was making them ahead of time & keeping them warm in the slow cooker. Great idea!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II
This recipe was fantastic! I was concerned it would be too sweet but it wasn't. I did use the Duncan Hines cake mix as recommended by other reviewers. I also used 2 boxes of vanilla because my grocery store didn't have butterscotch (I would love to try the butterscotch version!). I also wasn't sure why an entire cup of oil was necessary so I used 1/4 cup oil & 3/4 unsweetened applesauce (as recommended by others). I threw this together in 5 minutes on Thanksgiving morning. We had warm, fresh coffee cake with very little work. I am going to keep the ingredients for this on hand all of the time! So good & so easy. Thanks so much for the recipe!!! Oh - I also should mention that the texture of this cake was very custardy which we really liked. I was just surprised (I shouldn't have been with the pudding & eggs in there). When i cut into it, I thought it wasn't finished, but it was.

Hearty Ham Casserole
Followed the advice of other reviewers. Added broccoli to the casserole (this really added great flavor & color - highly recommended). As recommended by another reviewer, for the sauce I chopped up one small onion & also added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp cayenne, & 1 cup of mexican cheese blend. Use the rest of the bag of cheese over the top of the casserole. This was delicious!!! What a great way to use up all of that left over ham. I also skipped the parsley because I didn't have any.
