Indian Eggplant - Bhurtha

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
Bangain Bartha is one of my favorite Indian dishes and I tried to follow this as exactly as possible, although I cooked the eggplant on a hot grill rather than under the broiler in the oven. That said, I was very disappointed. The eggplant was stringy and nearly tasteless, even after I added additional seasoning, e.g., more salt and 1 tsp of garam masala. I finally added a Trader Joe's Punjabi Eggplant side dish and the final result was pretty good. Needless to say, I'll keep looking for an Indian eggplant recipe.

Chef John's Pumpkin Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
Wonderful! Creme Brulee is probably my favorite dessert, but this was the first time I've ever tried to make it myself. This recipe was easy. It made a wonderful Thanksgiving dessert ... just right after an extravagant dinner. I made it exactly as described. My 6 ounce ramekins were shallower and larger in area than pictured, so I could have baked them a bit less ... 25 to 30 minutes. Note too, that it takes a while to flame these. It took some time to do 12.

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
The cookies were tasty enough, but the dough was very difficult to work with. The biggest problem, however, was that the cookie dough spread out and lost its shape as it baked. My Christmas trees looked like blobs. I make cookie press or "spritz" cookies every year, but from a similar recipe that uses regular white granulated sugar instead of confectioner's sugar. That's the only explanation I can think of, but I'll never make this recipe again.
