Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This tasted great! I've made this a few times now and both times I followed other reviewers' advice and used an entire can of light coconut milk in replacement of the tomato sauce and heavy whipping cream. I had to cook it for almost 1/2 hour to get the potatoes to cook all the way. Although the recipe is VERY tasty, I gave it 4 stars because the cook time is not accurate. Thanks for the recipe! Will continue to use!

Pickled Beets

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I made these back in September and they turned out really well. I've been eating them for the past few months. I do have to say that the cloves were a bit much. I only added a few cloves per jar and it was quite strong. Still a good recipe though. Very easy for my first time making pickled beets!

Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
YUM! I made this pie last night and it turned out great! This is my first homemade pumpkin pie and it was really easy. I also cut the pumpkin in half, scooped out the seeds and stringy stuff and baked it at 400 for 40 minutes. Then I just threw all the filling ingredients with the pumpkin into my Kitchen Aid mixer. I did DOUBLE the spices, plus added a pinch of cloves and all-spice. I also added the full cup of brown sugar instead of 3/4. I only got one pie out of it with a little filling remaining. I filled the left over filling into my extra crust and baked for 1/2 the time. My dog actually jumped on the counter to get the pie and it landed on the floor. It was so good that I was actually eating the pie off the floor (the parts that didn't touch the ground)! I just bought the pie crust to save some time. Thanks for the recipe!

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
It was actually a little hard to find a lot of recipes online for refrigerator pickles, so I went with this one. I did make quite a few changes: I used small whole cucumbers (not sliced), I left the sugar out, I added 1 tsp celery seeds, 1 tsp mustard seeds, a few whole black peppers, a few whole all spice and whole cloves to the brine. I also added a sprig of fresh dill to each jar while stuffing the jar. I did add 2 garlic cloves to one jar even though I was kind of afraid of the "BLUE Garlic" thing happening (i think that happened because of the sugar). I ended up with 2 quarts of pickles. However, even after doubling the recipe I still didn't have enough brine. I just combined a little vinegar with water and topped it off. Well see how they turn out! Thanks! The Result: 24 hours later I tried my first pickle and WOW it tastes great! It was a slight shock because it was quite a bit more tangy/vigegary than store bought dill pickles, but I actually love that part. I think if I had actually added the sugar it would tone down the vinegar. Maybe next time I'll just add a few tablespoons of sugar. Nevertheless, these are GREAT and SUPER crunchy! Thanks for the recipe!
