South Indian Lentil Kootu

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I'm Indian and HADto jump in when curry leaves are replaced with curry powder. That's like substituting creole seasoning for sage leaves in a brown butter sauce! The only thing common between curry powder and curry leaves is that first word. Curry leaves serves the purpose of an aromatic. When fried in oil, you will notice they crisp up, not wilt. If you can't find curry leaves, it is best to just skip that ingredient or substitute it with cilantro. Please, not curry powder!!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
I've made this recipe 2 times now, both for kids' birthday parties. It was moist, dense and chocolatey. If you are looking for a light and airy cake, this is not your recipe. The first time I baked it on a 9*13 pan. I used baking strips on the pan so it would raise evenly. The baked cake shrunk to 1" after cooling,and I had to make another batch to have a decent height on the cake. I frosted using white buttercream and it was a pain to crumb coat and decorate. Needed a lot more frosting to avoid crumbs. The cake sucked in all the whipped cream filling. Attempt #2 :2 9"pans. Again,bake even strips. It didn't shrink as much and raised to a good decorating size. I left in on the counter for cooling and forgot about it for 2-3 hrs and the cake dried out a bit. Next time after cooling I will wrap it in waxpaper&foil until ready for frosting. This time I decorated with the chocolate frosting - delicious. Used creamcheese filling, sucked in again! Lessons learnt: bake in 9 inch pans, wrap promptly for freshness and stick to chocolate frosting for the filling.

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
The recipe is almost authentic - i say almost because Indians use garam masala and not curry powder. I don't add yogurt to my baingan bharta, but adding it isn't a sin, i wouldn't heat the dish after adding yogurt. Also, the eggplant is usually fire roasted and the smokey flavor is just outstanding. Also a small teaspoon of lemon juice in the end brings all the flavors out.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This recipe works! It is moist and delicious and never, EVER last more than a day in my household of 2 adults and 1 preschooler :) I took the suggestion of other reviewers and substituted 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce for oil but added 1 tablespoon of olive oil - the bread was not as moist without that one tblsp of oil. Also, I always substitute plain yogurt for buttermilk - works just fine. Love this recipe and we end up making batch almost everyweek.

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
The chips were edible but didn't stand out. The recipe didn't mention exactly how to cut the pita pockets, so i made them two ways: 1. slit the pockets in half and then cut it into 8 wedges 2. Just cut it into 8 wedges. I felt the second option worked better, but it took a little more than 15 minutes at 400F and i turned it over once. Next time I will try increase flavor by adding some chilli powder to the recipe. Will have to work around this recipe a bit to make it more interesting

Grilled Eggplant and Feta Farfalle

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I'm reviewing this recipe as I'm stuffing myself with the pasta dish - i'm about to burst. I used leftover grilled eggplant and zucchini and also leftover fusili pasta. I baked it covered for 15 minutes and uncovered for 5 minutes. The baked pasta was delicious!

Southwestern Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Good recipe. My 4 year old loved it (but then she loves most veggies including brussel sprouts). I didn't quite follow the baking instructions on this recipe, instead baked it at 350 F for 40 minutes on an uncovered, greased baking tray. I didn't have black beans, so substituted with dark kidney beans. Also,I used roasted red pepper , and balsamic vinegar instead of red wine. My family and I loved the dish. This is a great base recipe and forgives omissions and substitutions - perfect for the everyday home cook

Bev's Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
Great recipe! No need to open that mac'n'cheese box anymore. The first time around, I scaled it down to 2 servings but forgot to scale down the microwave time. Made this recipe a few more times and figured that for 2 servings, 1+1 minute,stiring in between, gets the sauce smooth and creamy. My 3 year old helps me make this dish and totally enjoys the dish.
