Spanikopita
Aside from the fact that it looked like a phyllo dough factory exploded in my kitchen, these were great! I did modify a little.. I used freh baby spinach instead of frozen. I chopped and sauteed them with garlic and onion until wilted. Once it cooled I drained it really well, added two eggs to the mix and then followed the rest of the recipe to a tee. Yes, it takes a little longer to make this my way but to me the flavor was totally worth it! This recipes is going to be one of my "go to's" from now on. A suggestion though... it's soooo much easier if you have two people doing this especially if you've never done it before. Otherwise, thanks for sharing such a GREAT recipe! Happy eating everyone :)

Indian Tomato Chicken
This is a fantastic recipe! I did modify it a bit as some recommended but was no less pleased with the result. For starters, I did not use bay leaf or nutmeg in mine. I did add chopped green/red bell pepper, twice the tomatoes, and 3-4 dried chilis for heat, and adjusted the spices to taste. I cooked 45 covered, 45 uncovered and had a lovely thick sauce to go with. I served mine with a simple saffron rice with peas and carrots mixed in along with naan. I think the only thing I will try different next time is to use lamb as the meat. Otherwise, thanks for a great recipe!

Moroccan Lentil Soup
I have to agree with some of the other reviewers on the whole Indian vs. Moroccan thing. I personally found it to lean more towards Indian flavours with the garam masala but it was a throughly enjoyable dish and it has been - per my family - put on the favorites list. I did modify a bit. I added a very small pinch of saffron, only used 1 tsp of fresh ground cardamom, used a mix of fresh and canned tomatoes, and put 1 small potato (cut in a fine dice) in about 20 min before it was done. I did not puree any of the soup as it was thick enough for my tastes. All in all a fantastic meal... Thanks for sharing!
