Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: May 2, 2006
This recipe is terrific- I'd give it 6 stars if I could! This is my new favorite way to use eggplant- I love the combination of veggies. I made it as a side with chicken curry and spinach paneer (frozen entree)and rice- the eggplant stole the show! I used a medium eggplant- didn't bother peeling, just scooped out the cooked inards and chopped them up with a spoon. I added 3/4 jalapeno in with the onion, thinking otherwise it would be too spicy, but it was not. Thought yogurt might separate when cooked so aggressively, but it did not! I didn't have ginger-garlic paste, just added a little fresh of each. Easy and healthy! Serve to all of your vegetarian friends!

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
This is a perfect chicken recipe if you'd like a simple, delicious roasted chicken, and you don't get it in the oven 2 hours before you want to eat! Done in an hour, and perfectly moist. In increased the salt in the rub to 1/2 teaspoon, and I forgot to reserve rub for the inside of the chicken, so I sprinkled in more salt and pepper and threw in half an onion. Easy to remember, I'll use this anytime I want a fast roasted chicken!

Sausage & White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
WOW! Fantastic! This is the white bean soup recipe I've been looking for. I made a few alterations, but it turned out to be just as good as the Tuscan White Bean and Pancetta soup at my local gourmet market. I used only 1/2 lb. fresh sausage which I crumbled and browned in the first step, I chopped the veggies finely and I used a turkey stock I made after Thanksgiving using lots of fresh rosemary. I highly recommend adding in a fresh sprig or two when you simmer the soup- the flavor is great with the beans. Also, I pureed all 3 cans of beans in my processor until they were just chunky- this made the soup very rich and thick. If you want to be really decadent I think you could also stir a 1/2 - 1 cup cream or half and half at the end. Great soup, and very easy!

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2004
FANTASTIC!! I made it with one slight, easy variation. Add 1-2 cups whole almonds, and use 1/2 teaspoon almond extract and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla in place of all vanilla. The result: Almond Toffee Popcorn -WAY better than Cracker Jack. Baked for 45 min. Perfect!
