Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Finally tried out this recipe last night. They were really nice and I will definitely make again. I used two cans of black beans and one can of kidney beans. I found it easy to mash the beans right in the pan (I noticed other reviewers saying they mashed before due to difficulties). I also added the mashed potatoes to the bean mixture before putting into tortillas. The recipe makes a large batch and I could not get all the mixture into the Old El Paso tortillas I had. Next time I will either use much larger or more tortillas or cut the recipe in half. Tip: easy with the cayenne I put a tad too much and they were spicy.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
After going through many bread recipes I finally decided to give this one a try. I followed the recipe exactly as written. After making the sponge I could only add about 2 cups of flour to the sponge and the recipe calls for 8 cups total. Not sure how anyone would get 8 cups into this dough without adding more liquids. I ended up splitting the dough into three but really should have only divided it up twice. I made one batch of rolls, a loaf of bread and cheesy bread. They all turned out great. For cheesy bread I made inch dough balls rolled them in melted butter, than parmesan and layered into tube pan, sprinkling cheddar cheese in between layers...it was the fav of the three!!

Gujarati Carrot and Peanut Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Very nice salad to serve with spicy curry dishes. I followed the recipe exactly, but instead of adding dressing right before serving, next time I will add and let chill for a few hours in refrigerator. I found the salad nicer the next day after the dressing had time to marinate the carrots. Next time I will also try to add some raisins.

Madras Tomato Chutney

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Make this chutney last night for Indian dinner party to serve with pakora recipe that I also found on this site. I didn´t have tamarind so I used cumin and garam masala to season. It made quite a bit for what I needed (as a dipping sauce) so next time I will half the recipe.

Naan

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
I made these for an Indian dinner party that I had this weekend. I made them a day ahead and the night of the dinner I heated them up a bit in the oven. I followed the recipe exactly as written although I did not use garlic. Also, I cooked them on the Barbeque!!! They turned out picture perfect...they bubbled up and browned perfectly. They are much better than any Naan bread you will find in grocery store. Will definitely make again and again...would be great for bbq with souvlaki kabobs!!

Crispy Vegetable Pakoras

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Wow...I never had pakoras before, even in a restaurant. This recipe was suggested to me through the recipe exchange when I was looking for Indian recipes for a dinner party I was planning. These were so good, I served them with Tomato Chutney (recipe on allrecipes too). I used half of a cauliflower, one onion, half a green pepper, and one small zucchini. I had to double the batter and followed the recipe exactly, although the flower I used was Faina flower (chick pea and flour blend). I cooked them in about 1 inch of veg oil like others suggested (and they stayed together) in large wok until golden. I ended up cooking them a few hours before I served them and they did get a bit soggy, so they are best cooked and served right away. I even tried crisping them up a bit in the oven but couldn´t get them back to their formal glory. Regardless they were a hit and will definitely make again.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
This was so tasty, I actually found this while looking for a Corn Chowder recipe. I used this recipe as the base and just added fresh corn and it was so Yummy. I will definitely be making this recipe again.
