Vendakka Paalu
Really good. I make this recipe a lot, and I've found that to keep it creamy like it is shown in one of the photos, I wait to add the coconut milk until the okra has finished cooking, and just let it get warm. Simmering the coconut milk seems to make mine break down and separate and loose it's pretty color and creaminess.

Chef John's Minestrone Soup
Wanted to make minestrone with what I had on hand, but didn't think I could do it without zucchini and carrots. Then luckily, I ran across this recipe which called for just about everything I had. It turned out fantastic, thanks Chef John! It's my favorite minestrone I've ever made or eaten out. My whole family truly enjoyed it. I am vegetarian, so I left out the meat and cheese, but added portabella mushrooms which I sauteed with the celery & onions. Instead of Italian seasoning, I used fresh thyme and rosemary sprigs. I used dried great northern beans, and added the cooking water to the soup which added a lot of flavor. Also, I cooked the pasta separately and added to individual bowls because I didn't want it to get soggy. The cabbage made the soup really delicious. I used savoy cabbage because that's what I had on hand. And for the first time, my family ate Swiss chard without complaining...success!!!

Pumpkin Bread I
Super delicious, you will never miss the oil! Every bit as good as the $7 loaf I buy at a local bakery, but made with better ingredients at home. I made a half recipe and baked it in a regular size loaf pan for 52 minutes at 325 degrees in a convection oven, following the advice of another reviewer. It turned out perfectly. I used a heaping cup of fresh pumpkin puree and omitted the water. I used all white whole wheat flower, and you couldn't tell it was whole grain at all. I cut the sugar to 1 cup, and added 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves, and 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger for the spices. My family loved it, even my husband who doesn't like pumpkin pie. It was even better after it had sit overnight. I'm making my second loaf today!
