Easy Microwave Chocolate Cake
Gets the job done regarding choco cravings but would not say it is fantastic. Like others I increased the sugar from 1/4 to 1/2 cup and added more cocoa.

Red Lentil Curry
I didn't have turmeric, curry paste or red lentils but forged ahead anyway, and it worked out great. I wanted to review this recipe because it was a helpful and worthy guide on my first try at lentil curry *plus* I figured there are others like me that were missing some recipe ingredients. If you don't have curry paste I suggest doubling the curry powder and ginger. I also love cumin and included 1 tablespoon instead of a teaspoon. I used half a can of whole tomatoes (which I smashed and then mixed into the spices) -ta non-authentic substitute for curry paste! All other spiced were added as per the recipe. The caramelized onions truly add to the flavors. Last suggestion: If your lentils are not mushy enough to your liking pulse a hand blender in there a couple of times and stir. It added just enough creaminess to the lentils.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie
Made this for my first Thanksgiving outside the US. I don't like pumpkin pie that much but when you make it from scratch -no canned pumpkin- yum! This was a hit with all the guests too.
