Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
First thank you very much to the reviewer that suggested grated garlic and ginger. I really enjoy the bursts of heat from those. With that being said the dish was really tasty. I added chopped okra for color which was really good. I used coconut oil as my vegetable oil and am considering using coconut milk or a fat free sour cream instead of yogurt. Those substitutions would be strictly for presentation. The yogurt does grain up during cooking as one reviewer said but the flavor is good.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
I cooked this in my tagine at 275 for three hours. Thank you to the reviewer that suggested the salt elimination. The lower sodium makes a huge difference in whether or not the dish is too salty. I also added roasted red peppers to mine for taste. The recipe is so simple and yummy but really low in fat. It's a keeper.

Sun-dried tomato hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
Well I made the recipe in response to a craving for sundried tomatoes and hummus so of course I gave it 5 stars it hit the spot. I do hope that others enjoy it as well.

Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
This is a great recipe and it scaled down nicely. (I cook for one maybe two) The members that said the olives made the dish- oh boy that's accurate. By changing from pitted kalamata to cured black Greek you get a whole new flavored dish. Instead of one or the other I'm going to combo the olives next time. I also never use canned tomatoes unless I canned them myself. You can use fresh tomatoes cup for cup without issues in this recipe.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
The dough for this tastes ridiculously good. It'll be a wonder if you can get the batter into the pans. The only thing about these is that they are very tender so make certain they are completely cool and stable before dipping them in the warm butter (I avoid margerine wherever possible as it consists of the chemical compound for plastic). I tried to follow the instructions as-is and the muffins practially exploded when dipped. Completely cool makes a big difference.

Homemade Marshmallows I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
This is a good recipe especially if your favorite boys are allergic to corn and gluten. The ingredient list does not list a flavor though and if you do not add a flavor to these they retain the stink and flavor of geletain. After reading some of the reviews also I decided to make certain to bring my sugar up to the soft candy stage about 240 degrees and begin whipping it while the sugar was hot. After about 3 minutes when the syrup became cloudy I added the gelatin mixture and whipped on the highest setting of my kitchenaid (I've had run ins with gelatin and whipping speed before) until the mixture was cool, white and held peaks. After they came down to room temp I put it in the fridge like another member said until it set. These were fabulous. I can now make gluten free "rice krispie" treats yay!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
I followed these directions and had my toffee come out perfectly. I made it for my guy friend since he buys me toffee for every special occassion (which I totally don't mind). I always avoid buying what I can make and have control over the ingredients for my loved ones and this was a perfect and super easy to make treat. He said it was better than the candy shop's!
