Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
I used more butter to get the crust to stick together a bit better. I used a bit more crackers than they said and a larger pan. Next time I will be more careful to add the flour separately from the vanilla and sour cream because some of the vanilla got with flour and made clumps - would be easier to make smooth that way. as other reviewers said that to stop it from cracking, don't overbeat, grease the sides of the springform very thoroughly, put a dish with water in the oven with it, and leave it in the oven for a long time, then out on the counter for a long time, before putting in fridge, so the cooling is very slow. - did all these things and it didn't crack at all, looked and tasted very nice :)

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Pretty good but could have had a fuller flavor - maybe because I used curry powder that had been sitting in the cupboard for a long time? I will try again with fresher curry powder or garam masala as other reviewers have suggested. Also I stupidly forgot to poke holes in the eggplant before sticking it in the oven and it exploded! hee hee, rookie mistake...

Easy Indian Style Okra

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
delish! i used olive oil instead of butter, and added diced fresh tomatoes as per other reviews. could definitely use more of the spice as well for a good strong flavor. it was soft but popping, not gummy as okra can sometimes be...

Vegetarian Moroccan Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Yummy! Olives, lemon, yogurt and cilantro really finished it off nicely. The only problem was the potatoes took much longer than 20 minutes to cook. Next time I will sautee them first before anything else, or microwave them first...

Fluffy Haddock and Potato Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
Yum! Great comfort food, and it's like the fish pie my English grandmother makes. I used cheddar instead of Swiss cheese.
