Chocolate Decadence Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
DO NOT LET THE EGGS GET SCRAMBLED. Further clarity as far as instructions goes would be nice. I'll try this one again and it'll probably come out brilliantly.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
SO DELICIOUS! Mmmmmm! Thank you for the recipe! It doesn't fail, even without the chicken (vegetarian style). To make less spicy, use less (meaning at least half for wusses like me) of the cumin, pepper and cayenne pepper.

Seasonal Crudites with Hummus and Baba Ganoush

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
I only made the baba ganoush, and it was DEEEELICIOUS! Not to mention rather easy to make. I can't imagine the hummus being any more difficult to prepare (or eat for that matter).

Mango Lassi II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Delicious! That's a good mango lassi. The sugar was just right (but I'm a sweet tooth, hehe) I *must* try it with strawberries.

Hearty Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Admittedly I leave out a lot of stuff, but it's still great. Adding the rice is a must!

Sesame Udon Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
This is an excellent dish! It's just tangy enough, and the sesame seeds balance out the tang of garlic and ginger. I added extra toasted sesame seeds. :D Make sure you don't have too much sauce in proportion to the noodles.

Soba with Toasted Sesame Seed Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
This is a nice, LIGHT dish, which is typical of many asian noodle dishes - especially cold ones. Yum yum! I made this dish two days in a row! The second time I substituted the balsamic vinegar for rice wine vinegar, and the result was an even lighter taste. Although both are good, I think I'll stick to the balsamic. :) Thank you for sharing!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
this recipe is wonderful! not too spicy, and really moist. :) i used fresh pumpkin instead of canned; i cut the pumpkin up, de-seeded, steamed and then blended it up. i managed to bake this in a toaster oven, so no excuses about it being to difficult! Thanks much for adding in the celcius baking temperature as well.

Creamy White Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Quick and dirty sauce; minimal ingredients needed. I added basil, oregano and fresh garlic slivers to add more taste. I also topped the pasta w/ sauteed basil & lemon chicken breast.

Sweet Rice and Mango

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
I mixed the sugar in with the water, and also substituted some of the water with coconut milk. Unfortunately the mixture came out too watery. I've made great coconut rice with a similar recipe, so I must be doing something wrong somewhere.

White Sauce

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
This is a really great and easy recipe that uses everyday ingredients. You can also use this as a quick base sauce for other pasta recipes like carbonara (add bacon, pimentos, onion) or al fredo sauce (add cheese). White wine is also quite good in this sauce. It is a little bland though.

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
This is delicious! i HATE bananas, but now i've found a way to enjoy them. :) I used skim milk and added about 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground up oatmeal (I don't like that by itself either). Thanks for helping me be a little more healthy! In the future, for added decadence, I would add chocolate syrup as well.

Lemon Glazed Poppy Seed Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I expected the muffins to be lemony and sweet. This was not the case. Also, the glaze was too thick and I had to add lots of lemon juice.

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
This is a very lightly flavored soup; although this bothered me at first, I appreciated this (more authentic?) lighter Mediterranean flavor. Great w/ a side of toasted crusty bread and dipping oil!

Orange Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
I think I need to find a better-tasting concentrate; it was a little chalky & artificial tasting. Don't skimp on the orange juice.
