Baked Tilapia with Arugula and Pecan Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
20 minutes to bake a tilapia fillet is waaaay too long. Your fish will be overcooked. I recommend about 8 to 10 minutes in a pre-heated oven.

Charred Eggplant Raita

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
I roasted the serrano pepper as well. I also browned a red onion rather than using a raw regular onion. Good results overall. If you want to make raita for the purpose of cooling your mouth, this probably isn't the right recipe, as this particular raita definitely packs some heat. If you just want a delicious compliment to an Indian meal, then this is good pick!

Okra Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
My husband made this and didn't change a thing -- it was perfect! Not gummy at all. Tasted almost exactly like the okra dish at our favorite Indian restaurant in Irvine, the Clay Oven.

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
For those of you having difficulty with the cooking time, I made this recipe for muffins instead of bread and it came out okay -- they were REALLY dense, but they tasted good. I baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes and I turned the pan halfway through the baking time so that the browned evenly. I got 20 regular sized muffins out of the recipe. I did cut the flour by a half cup and replaced it with rolled oats, and I used white whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. And I added candied ginger instead of raisins. Decent recipe but I'm not sure I'll return to it.

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Great cookie! I took them to a party and they were a hit. I actually did half white flour and half oat flour and them an extra layer of flavor that I really liked. Use high quality chocolate and cocoa powder -- it makes a noticeable difference.

Berry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
I thought these muffins were pretty good but they came out a little chewy...but that could be my fault for using applesauce in place of the butter. I also added the juice and zest of a lime and some minced basil. Hubby really liked the flavors.

Mexican-Style Taco Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Good flavors overall. Since iceberg lettuce has minimal nutritional value, I used mixed baby greens instead.

Mexican Ceviche

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I used jumbo shrimp and they took a lot longer than 30 minutes to turn opaque, so I definitely recommend rough chopping if you're using big shrimp. I added lime juice too.

Strawberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Good base recipe. Instead of milk, I used 1/2 cup strawberry yogurt plus 1/4 tsp. baking soda. The batter got a little thick, so I added a little milk at the end to thin it out. I also added 1/4 tsp. dried lemon peel in addition to the fresh lemon juice and zest. The result: the strawberry and lemon flavors were equally strong and tasty and the muffins had a nice, moist texture!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
I thought these were better the next day -- they firmed up overnight. They were a little sweet for my taste, and they came out really thin. If I were to make them again, I think it would probably leave out some of the sugar and maybe make 1.5 batches so they would be a little thicker. I didn't make the frosting so I can't comment on that.

Honey Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
Pretty good base recipe for healthy muffins. My husband didn't think my first batch was sweet enough so I added a couple tablespoons of brown sugar and that did the trick.

Red Chard and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
This dish has all the right components but it's reeeeeally salty. Next time I would use either capers or olives, but not both, and cut the sea salt altogether, or just use one shake of the shaker.

Curried Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
I added a chopped yellow onion with the garlic and I doubled all the spices (except the salt). I like my Indian food on the spicy side anyway, and the current spice measurements didn't quite cover the potatoes and the chicken. Good flavors overall though.

I used cumin seeds instead of caraway and the result was delicious!

Lena's Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
Really bland. I think it needs some acid (lemon juice or vinegar). My husband put Sriachi in it after I served it to him, if that gives you an idea of how bland it is. Might be a good base recipe but definitely needs some adjustments.

Asian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
My husband especially loved the flavor of this soup. The mushrooms make the broth very rich. I drizzled a little sesame oil on the top of each serving, which added a nice layer of flavor. Make your own chicken broth if you have time -- less salty, more flavorful.

Lamb and Bulgur Soup (Shorba Freek)

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I can't give it five stars because I changed the cooking method quite a bit, but the flavors are really great. I did this in my slow cooker with bison stew meat instead of lamb. I browned the bison in a skillet and then put it in the slow cooker along with all the other ingredients (except the bulgur and fresh parsley). I cooked it on high for 3 hours and on low for two more, and added the bulgur during the last 30 minutes of cooking time, and I added the parsley right before serving. It was a tasty rainy day meal. Next time I'll probably thicken it with tomato paste toward the end.
