Indian Style Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
My husband is from New Delhi and when his mom visits she makes similar rice. However, she prepares the "masala" (onion spice mixture sauteed in the oil) and then dumps that into a rice cooker with the rice and water already in it. Press start and you are done - it all cooks up just fine and is delicious. Peas are a great addition, and carrots diced small. A little more salt may be needed depending on the amount of rice. I just rinse the rice in a colander until the water is clear-ish before putting in the rice maker.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
Great recipe, have made 4 of these pies now. Granny smiths work well. Added 1-2 T flour, lemon juice to apples and mixed this and sugar/ spices with apples. Decreased sugar by about 1/2 in this part. For the topping, it makes a lot so I decreased everything by 1/3 and it's just right. Also, I baked for an hr as some reviewers suggested but the apples were too mushy. So I'd recommend following the recipe on oven temp and cooking time. This will be my go-to apple pie recipe going forward; the presentation is very nice and people are surprised that it's home made rather than store bought.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
This was fabulous and my husband also loved it. We are trying to eat less meat so this will be a vegetarian staple for us. I needed 3 t oil to saute the onions/garlic, added 1 c edamame and used only 1 can of beans as another reviewer suggested and this was just the right amount. I also added a couple splashes of rice vinegar at the end which gave a nice flavor. Will definitely make again. Also great for lunch the next day.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
This looked great...until I put the cream cheese in. I would have preferred it without the cream cheese. I didn't care for the taste and it just made it sort of gloopy. I doubled the recipe and used 6 oz of cream cheese and it seemed like too much. That said, my husband thought it was great, so I give it 3 stars.
