Vanilla Sesame Cake
Mediocre at best. There are better simple cake recipes on this site, by far.

Indian Chicken Curry II
This is a great base recipe to work from, but the curry is a little weak. I would recommend spicing it up a bit to your liking. Easy and fast are it's great attributes!

Blanc Mange (English Style)
I substituted orange for lemon peel and cloves for cinnamon sticks. I also added fresh vanilla bean (1/2 bean, chopped), ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg (a dash). Not sure if the consistency before refrigeration is the same as after just yet...hoping it will thicken up a slight bit. The taste even prior to refrigeration is fantastic though!
