Aloo Phujia

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
Yummy yummy yummy! I made this, as well as a few other dishes for ab going away party, attended by a large number of people who had tasted very little Indian food in their culinary careers. They loved it! I made this the night before, to let the flavors comingle.

Oyako Donburi

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
Oishii! My Japanese boyfriend devoured this, making yummy noises throughout. Alterations: I halved the recipe, only used 2 eggs, and four shiitake mushrooms instead of three (we both love them) and thighs instead of breats, but only about 2/3 of what was called for, not big meat eaters. I ended up not having any fat to drain, but in bigger quantities I can see how this would be a problem. I had to use about 1/4 cup more chicken broth, and then another 1/4 cup water to give it an soupiness at all, which is what I was after. I will make this again, it is so easy! Oh, I also used 1/2 T of mirin in place of 1/2 T of the soy sauce.

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: May 3, 2007
Yummy! I used 3 small granny smith apples, which gave the chunks a nice bite. I shredded one and a half, chopped the remainder, used four T applesauce, 1/3 c margarine, 1 t cinn and 1/2 t nutmeg in batter, 1/2 c. white sugar, 1/2 c brown, and a little extra cinnamon in the topping. I made them ten hours ago, got twelve standard size muffins, and have only four left. well, three as soon as i get done with this review ;)

Carrot Coin Casserole

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
This was bland and unentertaining. The sauce was a bit runny, but did get more cohesive as the dish cooled. Not spectacular, not inedible. Good if you don't have adventerous tastes.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
Oh my goodness these are delicious. I've never been prompted to post a review until today. I have been fighting a mostly losing battle with bread, quick and leavened alike, for a few years now, but these came out perfectly! I made a couple of minor changes: A sprinkle of cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, allsipe and cloves to the dry ingredients (no more than 1/4 t, combined), though it didn't seem to make much differenc; I used the oil, as recomended, instead of melted butter; and, also as recomended from other reviews, i increased the amount of topping, to 1 1/2 times. Made way too much, actually, so next time I'll stick to the recipes dosage. My boyfriend licked his plate after eating one of these, and he can be picky. Oh, and if you leave the bananas a little less than totally smooth, you wind up with yummy little spots of warm banana in your muffin.
