Beet Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I was quite impressed with this recipe. I decreased the brown sugar, used 1/2 whole wheat flour and added 3 tbsp cocoa powder. I used five moderate sized beets, peeled and boiled them, then pureed them. I agree with other reviewers that this cake was much better a day or even several days after baking it. One day after I could detect a bit of graininess from the whole wheat flour and maybe a twinge of bitterness. The texture was magnificent a couple days afterward and the rest disappeared quickly. My finicky brothers had no idea it contained any beets!

Exotic Indian Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Beautiful dish. I crushed the whole seed spices a bit with a mortar and pestle. I also used ghee in place of oil.

Sweet and Tangy Sauteed Collard Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
These are the most delicious collard greens I've ever eaten. This method allows the greens to retain some texture and crunch (and likely loads more nutrients) than those recipes that "cook the greens to death". I omitted the onion and didn't miss it...just simple, delicious greens. This is a new addition to our Thanksgiving meal.

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
Hearty and delicious! This could easily become a St. Patrick's Day tradition. I increased the carrot a bit for color and added a little chopped celery. I also left most of the skin on the potatoes for a rustic colcannon. Excellent.

Rajma (Kidney Bean Curry)

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
This dish was wonderfully aromatic and flavorful, as well as filling. I served with Palak Paneer and brown basmati rice. One precaution: go easy on the ghee. I found it could easily overpower the dish and cause to be a bit too rich.

Refreshing Lentil Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
This beautiful dish has excellent texture, but i found it in need of a punch of flavor. Increasing the heat with a jalapeno pepper, adding more fresh herbs, or increasing lemon juice might help. I will certainly make this again.

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Tastes delicious, super moist. Barely a reason to cook a whole chicken any other way. I also stuffed garlic cloves beneath the skin over the breasts, legs, and thighs.

Algerian Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
Great flavors and fresh twist on the traditional steamed carrots. It was very important to maintain a crisp-tender texture in the steamer to avoid mushy carrots after sauteeing with spices.

Spinach, Red Lentil, and Bean Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
Excellent dish! I suggest not overcooking this one so that the textures of the spinach and tomatoes are still present. I increased all the seasonings, added a an extra garlic clove or two and a 1/4 a tsp or so of red pepper. Will make often!

Ceviche Self-Portrait

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I added avocado and used crabmeat and mahi mahi in this dish. After increasing by several limes for juice I left overnight and the seafood cooked perfectly. Next time I'll shred the fish, rather then cube it for even faster cooking. Refreshing dish.

Marinated Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
This is nice tangy dish with flavors I really enjoy. I used a sweet Vidalia onion and large 'stuffer' mushrooms which I quartered. This works well as an appetizer served with with crusty French bread. next time I think I'll cut back a little on the onion and throw in some other fresh herb or capers.

Poor Man's Caviar

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I made this dish for a birthday get-together and received great reviews. I increased the vinegar a bit, added two chopped Roma tomatoes, and gently mixed in a chopped avocado just before serving.

French Leek Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
This is a delightfully simple dish with a delicate, classy flavor. For "light cream" I used half heavy cream, half 2% milk and whisked in ~2 tbsp flour based on previous suggestions. The texture is perfect and flavor divine. The only thing i'll change next time use of a homemade pie crust.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
These cookies taste delicious, however, mine were not terribly soft. Perhaps because I took the advice of previous reviews and added a little extra flour and salt for ease of handling. Pairing that with the freezer technique made working with these cookies no problem.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Besides what I feel is a needed sugar adjustment, this recipe is awesome. Very easy and with great results. I too would increase pb to 1 cup, reduce brown sugar to 2 and confectioner's sugar to 3, or perhaps even 2 and 1/2. Prior sifting of the confectioner's sugar would make the smooth texture even easier to attain. Great recipe, thanks!

Aloo Palak

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
This DELICIOUS simple dish makes an excellent, hearty fall meal: healthy too! I substituted curry powder in place of curry leaves, and a bit of onion powder for asafoetida powder. Sesame oil may work better for sauteeing the spinach at high enough heat to remove excess water, as peanut oil will smoke a bit. Some may want to increase salt. Wonderful dish. Thanks SUSMITA!

A beautiful alchemy of a salad. I suggest high quality sharp cheddar cubed small and Gala organic apples.

Yellow Dhal - Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
Great, hearty, comfort food. I too cooked the potatoes in the microwave. I mashed the potatoes enough to allow a little chunk here and there and barely mashed the lentils into the potatoes to retain most of their shape: the textures were excellent. I also minced and sauteed three garlic cloves with the onion and added cinnamon, cumin and red & black pepper and salt to the spices, using fresh parsley for lack of cilantro. Served with warm basmati rice this made an excellent meal and even better warmed for lunch the next day. If one were to add much liquid at the end I would suggest increasing spices and salt.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
This is the one of the easiest, most delicious recipes I've ever come across. My mom and I love and prepare it habitually. On ocassions when I'm without fresh cilantro, two tablespoons of dried has worked beautifully as well.

Duck-and-Sausage Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
This dish has been deemed an opening day tradition. An excellent recipe and relatvely easy. Just make sure you get your roux perfected and the rest is a cinch. I added file as well during the last five minutes of cooking.
