Key Lime Pie IV
Sadly, this is probably the best recipe AllRecipes has to offer. It is close to the traditional recipe in most ways (uncooked filling, standard crust), but to be a Key Lime Pie it has to be made with Key Lime juice. Key limes are much different than the standard Persian limes, with an entirely different flavor. No lemon juice, standard is about 1/2 cup Key Lime juice (about 3/4 lb. fruit). Under no circumstances should green food coloring be used; the filling should be yellow. Whipped cream is pretty common now, but meringue was used first- the pie was developed at a time when there was practically no refrigeration in the area (south Florida).

Indian Style Basmati Rice
This is far too much water- typically the proportion is 1 1/3 to 1 for dry rice, 1 to 1 for soaked, though these can be adjusted somewhat. The cumin is also way out of proportion.

The garlic would be better toasted in a dry skillet, and there are more Mexican tasting sources of heat- I think Serrano chiles taste best in guac. If you don't like raw onion, it can be sauteed, or toned down by a brief soaking in water.
