Yellow Cake
I really liked this recipe, very moist. I substituted white cake flour, as I only had whole wheat all purpose flour on hand, and used 1/2 cup lemonade instead of 3/4 cup orange juice (as I was out of oj). I baked in two 9 in round cake dishes, reducing the cook time to 35 minutes. As other reviewers suggested, I skipped the frosting. I served with fresh strawberries and whip cream. I will definitely make this again. Will try the oj, or maybe pineapple juice and I think I'll give whole wheat pastry flour a try. I'm not sure why other reviewers had problems with the recipe. I am not a baker and found it simple to follow. I did mix thoroughly w/ an electric mixer for a very smooth texture (about 3 min). Delicious!

Indian Cauliflower
Per other reviewer's recommendations, I cut the cauliflower in florets and increased the bake time to 45 min. (I did not need to add additional water). I used 2 cloves of garlic (didn't have garlic powder) and 1 can of diced tomatoes (didn't have fresh tomatoes). I did not heat the oil/tumeric mixture, but rather just combined and basted. I thought the tumeric was well balanced (I have over-tumericed before), and complimented the flavor from the garam masala (store bought mix). I have used "Pataks" to cheat when making Indian food before, but I found the tomato curry easy to make and a seemingly, a great base. I might try it with chicken or lamb and add a little scome chilies for heat. When I make it again, I will try charring the onions for deeper flavor.

Whipped Carrots And Parsnips
These were just excellent. The nutmeg was just the right amount. I prefer a blender over a food processors and reserved some of the water used to steam the veggies (approx 1/2 cup). Next time will try with olive oil for my vegan friend.
