Vegan Curried Rice
I already had 3 cups of (uncooked) basmati rice going in the rice cooker when I found this recipe. Since I am a bit shy about really spicy foods, I left everything the same, knowing I was going to add about 4 cups of cooked rice to the seasonings. Once it got to the point of adding the extra water that was meant to cook the rice, I added 3 ribs of diced celery, 2 thick slices of diced red onion, and 1 large grated carrot. It only took 3 minutes or so to cook them to the desired texture, then I stirred in 4 cups of cooked rice. It was still a tiny bit too spice for me, but I just added some of the leftover plain rice into my bowl, and I loved it. My husband said it was delicious as is; but he wouldn't mind a little more curry. Done my way, I used about half the spices the recipe called for, for the amount of rice I added!

Best No-Bake Cheesecake
I'm not a fan of cheesecake and had never made one myself. I was nervous to try the baked type since it was for my 18yr old's birthday, so I went with this recipe. I used a round cake pan since I didn't have a spring form pan, and only ended up using about 3/4 of the graham cracker crust. For the filling, I added 2/3 c sugar per comments, and rather than whipping cream I folded in a container of cool whip after the cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice were incorporated. At the last minute I decided to fold half a can of cherry pie filling into the cream cheese mixture and let it set up like that, serving the rest on the side for those who wanted more cherries on top. It was still pretty soft when I served it but we put it in the freezer and will probably just take it out 10 minutes before serving the next time. The boys loved it!

Vegetarian Lime Orzo
Yum! I doubled the veggies and added half an onion, diced. We still had a ton of tomatoes from our garden, so I used 2 cups of chopped, fresh tomatoes rather than canned. I really liked the shredded vegs with the orzo, it was a nice texture and the lime juice (no zest) gave it a good flavor.
