Kheer (Rice Pudding)
The quantities and times are accurate for this recipe. Kheer is not as thick as a Western-style rice pudding, and should be still be a bit fluid when cool. Often I have used substitutions in this recipe, depending on what I had on hand. Instead of ground cardamom, I use about 12 - 15 green cardamom pods (I like my cardamom!). The pods should go in with the milk to get the best flavour, and be fished out after cooking. Instead of sugar, I like to put in about a quarter of a small can of sweetened condensed milk. Instead of rose water, I add about 1/4 tsp of almond extract (and sometimes some vanilla extract). Unsweetened flaked coconut is another great addition or garnish. Chopped (and roasted/toasted) almonds, pistachios, and walnuts are delicious garnishes. Kheer is delicious warm or cold. When cooking the rice, I leave the pot uncovered and watch it carefully so it doesn't burn or boil over.

Mac and Cheese II
This recipe is good, not great. Like other reviewers have said, it is a good basic recipe to build on. I don't like that the recipe uses so much processed cheese, though. I wonder if there's a way to get the creamy texture without all the Velveeta?

No candy thermometers, no double-boilers — this fudge recipe is not only an easy, one-pot deal, it tastes like the stovetop stuff. I made a pan of semisweet chocolate chip-coconut stuff (used 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut in place of the nuts) and one pan of white chocolate-cranberry. The white chocolate-cranberry fudge didn't quite set properly and was a little gooey/chewy. I think this might have been because I used "real" white chocolate callets with a high percentage of cocoa butter. I think the extra sugar in chocolate chips helps the fudge to set to the proper consistency so I would stick to using chocolate chips in the recipe and not real chocolate chunks. If you do use real chocolate, consider cutting down the condensed milk a bit to help the fudge set.
