Kheer (Rice Pudding)

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
An interesting twist on rice pudding. If you are using white rice, double the amount or it will be far too watery. I suggest being conservative with the rose water - a little goes a long way! Next time I will mix in only 1/4 teaspoon, then taste it and add drops until I reach the flavor I want.

Chunky Apple Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
I served this to about 10 people and all of them liked it. This is a good breakfast bread that balances the "healthy" and "indulgent" sides of breakfast foods. Next time I will try brushing the top with buttermilk and butter to enhance the crust.

A nice hearty cookie. Dice the apple but feel free to leave the skin on.

These are very hearty cookies, great for addicts like me who constantly want a cookie but feel they shouldn't have one for breakfast...again.

25-Minute Tunisian Vegetable Couscous

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
Tasty and satisfying as a main dish. My guests really enjoyed adding romano cheese and slivered almonds to the top. The almonds were good for the texture and added a bit of crunch. If you like spicy food, double the spices. This makes a very mild version.

Finnish Flat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
Easy as pie and totally tasty! I brushed mine with a bit of butter for the last 5 minutes. Served with hummus and fresh tomato.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Simple healthy and hearty. Next time I wouldn't sautee anything - everything was more than soft when it came out of the oven. Crunchy onions would have been nice! Use a yellow or orange pepper for color. I served with couscous because it was quite soupy on the bottom. Don't skimp on the cheese!

Citrus Sorbet Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
A great summer birthday cake. Use any flavor jello you'd like. Just be sure to freeze it on a level surface - I didn't, and all the marshmallows floated to one side. Oops!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Can be used as a side dish or a main. I liked that it can be made the day before - just add the fresh herbs the day of. This recipe has a little kick because of the cayenne - this prevents it from being just another bean and rice dish. Next time I would add some chopped red or orange bell pepper for color - it was a pretty unattractive brown / gray dish.

Penne with Pancetta, Tuna, and White Wine

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Healthy and tasty! I used turkey bacon, sweet white wine, and portobello mushrooms. Don't skimp on the salt.

Couscous with Mushrooms and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Healthy, fresh recipe that even meat-lovers will enjoy. Next time I will ease up on the lemon juice, add a bit more salt, and exchange more mushrooms for sun dried tomatoes.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
Easy, light, and tasty. There is a generous amount of shrimp in this recipe. We used the pre-cooked kind and heated it through. A delicious alternative to heavy red sauces.

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Excellent! Fresh, summery, and healthy. Next time I may try it with fresh herbs. All measurements are approximate in this recipe; suit to your taste. Tip: cut the cucumbers lengthwise, then scoop out the seeds with a spoon and discard. This keeps the salad from becoming to soupy and slimy, and gives it a crisper texture.

Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage and Sweet Peppers

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
A really tasty easy meal that doesn't take long to make. Depending on the brand of sausage, you may not need to drain it. I used the fat of the sausage to sautee the peppers, so I didn't need to drain.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Tasty and a nice alternative to muffins and bread. You can cut down on the sugar because the banana makes it plenty sweet. I used 1/2 brown sugar. To make them more decadent, try adding 1/3 coconut and 1/3 chocolate chips (put in less oatmeal and less nuts).

Italian Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Really good taste, and did the job as a bowl well. I made six loaves, and the bowls were the right size. My mixers were straining after only 4 cups of flour, so I had to stop and knead in more by hand. Even then the dough was saturated with four at 5 1/2 cups! If this happens to anyone else, don't worry, the bread will still turn out. I also learned the egg white is important to giving it a tough "shell" to be water tight as a bowl.

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I served this to self-proclaimed "carnivores," and they really enjoyed it. You won't miss the meat. This is a flavorful chili that is more lean than most. I added another can of black beans. Everything in this recipe is a guideline- add ingredients to your taste.

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
This is a tasty and satisfying meal. You probably won't notice or miss the meat. This is also a good recipe for anyone who enjoys Indian cuisine but is wary of too much heat. Tips: don't cube the potato and carrot, cut them into bite sized pieces and boil them in a separate pot until "al dente," then add. This will cut down on the total prep time. I lucked out with the rice. Don't sweat this part - basically in the end you'll want to heat the rice and the mixture together so the sauce incorporates with the rice and so it is all heated through. I used lite coconut milk instead of heavy cream.
