Powdered Sugar

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I used a Magic Bullet and did batches of 1 cup each. It took about a minute per batch and the consistency and taste is exactly that of store-bought confectioner's sugar. Absolutely brilliant - will use every time from now on! PS - Someone below asked why there is cornstarch in it. It is because that is how confectioner's sugar is made and it will affect the outcome/consistency of your icing, etc. if you leave out the cornstarch. It is a necessary ingredient.

Pocket Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
Way too much salt and cook time is not nearly long enough. The first time I made this bread it was like eating doughy salt. I cut the salt in 1/2 and cooked the bread almost twice as long to get a decent pocket and color. After those adjustments it was alright.

Matar Pulao with Nuts

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Probably not the kind of rice to make if you don't already have all of these unusual (to Westerners) spices in your cabinet, some of which are difficult to find if you don't have a local Indian Market. If you do, and if you love "real" Indian food, this rice is delicious and very authentic.

White Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
What a lovely and simple old-fashioned frosting recipe! :) I made mine bright pink with 3 drops of red food coloring. A real winner. I used my Kitchen Aid stand mixer on med-high and the texture came out lovely.

Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
Wonderfully simple and tasty recipe for stuffed mushrooms. The changes I made were to add 1/8 tsp. black pepper and 1 minced garlic clove to the onion/stem sauté before stuffing the mushroom caps. I also used half cheddar cheese and half monterey jack cheese for a milder cheese flavor.

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Wonderfully flavorful! I used mild curry powder and mild Patak's curry paste so my toddler could have some too and this recipe was a hit all around the table. :) Also, I used powdered ginger instead of fresh, doubled the amount of lentils, onions and tomato puree and we will have leftovers for a couple of days. Great stuff.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
I have never been very good at making bread. Until now. This is the most awesome and simple recipe I have ever found and my entire family loves it. I have made it several times now, and lately I add a tablespoon of flax seeds to the dough for extra awesomeness. It is wonderful for sandwiches, toast, with soup, anything. :)

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
I used three large ripe bananas instead of two, doubled the rest of the ingredients and added a teaspoon of organic fair trade Vanilla along with a sprinkle of Cassia Cinnamon. I think next time I might substitute a 1/4 of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour. They were delicious! :-)

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Decent cookie. Not the best I've ever made, but my daughter likes them and that is what really matters. I probably will try a different recipe next time, as these just don't kick it up for me.

Alicia's Aloo Gobi

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Excellent, flavorful and a huge hit with the hubby. :) Be advised, this recipe is incredibly spicy, so those of us with more "Americanized" palates might like to halve or even use a third of the cayenne called for in the recipe. The rest of the spices can be found cheaply at your local Indian Market. Finally, I added some chopped cilantro as garnish and served with naan.
