Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce
I really enjoyed this recipe! So I doubled up on the recipe because as mashing the first can, it didnt seem like it would be enough (in retrospect it really was more than enough). I realized I didnt have any eggs, but thought I would try it without as I have seen other recipes that don't use eggs. Also, I substituted cilantro for parsley for two reasons (1. i like the flavor more, and 2. if there was leftover cilantro, I had a use for it unlike parsley). Since I doubled it, I actually used one onion because it was a larger one. As for the tzatziki, I doubled that as well (as my fam loves sauces!). The only thing I added was a bit of garlic paste (about half a cloves worth). It made such a big difference to the sauce! As for cooking method, I baked a small batch to see how it would turn out (I had read this on another review for this recipe). I formed patties and then slightly liberally brushed it with oil Though slightly dry, I really did like the baked version as it cut the grease. Even in terms of the frying, though, it turned out great. I made pita pocket sandwiches out of it and found it to be a very enjoyable meal. The family really loved it too, which was great! Will definitely be making this again.

Greek Pasta Salad I
What a fabulous recipe- a real crowd pleaser! I used penne pasta, and couldnt figure out the dry ratio to wet ratio. I found that 2 oz dry cup of pasta should yield 1 cooked cup. So i made half a cup to yield 2. In my opinion, it really didnt. I ended up using 3 cups of dry pasta, and made double the dressing. I didnt toss all the pasta in the dressing. Instead I added a little dressing at a time and checked the flavor. This turned out fabulous! Instead of slices, I diced a small 'log' of pepperoni, and red bell pepper as well. For the most part, I left the dressing the same, maybe added a little more wine vinegar and sugar, as it tasted a little too olive oil like. But really it was a hit. Got tons of compliments and didnt have any left by the end of the party. Will definitely make this again!

Masale Aaloo (Spice Potatoes)
Loved this recipe. Followed it as is, and it turned out great. I loved that the potatoes were not too oily, and the spice coating, fried on the potatoes had such great flavor- especially the cumin! Will definitely keep this recipe on hand to make when I cook Indian food!
