Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)
I liked this! Because onions are so central to the flavor of the dish, I'd definitely recommend using two or three onions instead of the one suggested. Also, brown rice is in some ways more convenient than white, since it can begin boiling at the same time as the lentils. This recipe makes a lot of food, so if you're like me, you'll have tons left over. A tip: try adding an egg and some breadcrumbs to the leftovers, forming the mixture into patties, and pan-frying 'em. Call them croquettes, call them veggie burgers -- whatever you call them, they're delicious.

Gnocchi I
A great, basic gnocchi recipe. I like this served with a simple garlic butter sauce and some oregano, basil, and black pepper. I might have an idea about why reviewers have disagreed on how much flour this recipe needs: It depends on how much water the potatoes absorb during cooking. If you boil them whole, they'll absorb a fair bit of water; if you boil them in chunks, they'll absorb even more. If you steam them, they'll absorb less, and if you microwave them, they'll absorb none at all. My suggestion: Start with one cup of flour and add more to the potato mixture as you knead it until the dough is dry to the touch (but not so dry that it crumbles). My experience is that two pounds of potatoes will take about a cup and a half of flour.

Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread I
Superb. Like others, I always sprinkle brown sugar on top. One thing I'd note to anyone making a banana bread for the first time: Trust your instincts! Bananas vary, so if yours aren't very sweet, add more sugar. If yours are especially moist, add a bit of extra flour (the finished dough should be like a thick muffin batter). This recipe is forgiving enough to work even without these alterations, but a sense of adventure really helps take it up a notch.
