Green Tomato Relish
Very nice, I accidentally forgot to add salt to the recipe so it was quite sweet. Also was unable to chop it coursely so it a little watery. Otherwise very nice. Alterations I would make another time: chop a little more coursely, remember salt, add a little less sugar and reduce the celery seeds. I used it in a chicken wrap (recipe also from this site) and was amazed at how much nicer it tasted as a result!

Spinach and Pasta Shells
Good recipe, very simple and tastey. I added some chopped bell pepper to the garlic to give it a little more body. Was going to add some ragu, but decided it didn't need it. Used fresh spinach from the garden. A great, lunch and ready in 5 minutes.

Spicy Indian Chicken Curry Yummy
Not great. 1. What Gravy? I added a mug of boiling water and 250g halved cherry tomatoes (I would have used chicken stock and/or chopped tomatoes, but I didn't have any) 2. The cardamon pods were killers when I bit into one. 3. The cloves were killers when I bit into one! 4. The coriander seeds were killers when I bit into one!! (the above could have done with being ground). 5. The black peppercorns wern't great whole either. All-in-all not the best (infact probably the worst) curry I've had, although it has some of the basics of a good curry. I'm honestly suprised at the number of 4-5 stars reviewers have given it.
