I looked at some of her recipes (via Amazon and on her website).  She has some nice ideas.  What have you thought so far of the ones that you have made?

I've cooked roughly a third of the recipes in the book.  There was a pasta dish that I didn't like because the sauce was too soupy and there was a chickpea curry that I thought was too bland, and everything else I've liked.  And my favorite recipe is the Chili.

Is your "rolling eyes" emoji a good thing or a bad thing?  Hoping that you enjoyed it!  And any veggies/salad to go with it?

Here:  made some lentil soup a couple of days ago...o.k. recipe, but want a better one.  Thinking of making some mac 'n cheese for dinner tonight (adding in some pre-cooked broccoli and making my own bread crumbs to go on top).

p.s.  And I almost forgot to say welcome to the forum!  :-[

I did something similar a couple nights ago but made it Italian sausage.

That is one of Abbey Sharp's "hunger crushing combos"... oh wait I'm wrong.  She doesn't add broccoli, she adds cauliflower and butternut squash.

I like the one from Joy of Cooking.  Balsamic vinegar and thyme really does the trick.  That is unless you want a more popular Indian variety.

Thanks for the ideas!  I do have a Joy of Cooking and will see whether or not it's in there (mine is an older copy).  And I should also pick the brains of a local Middle Eastern restaurant as they make one there that I like.

The soup that I made (like a lot of soups) tasted better a day or two later.  And, yes, a good Indian recipe would be nice too (I suspect that I should have added more curry powder).

Just made roasted garlic soup. So good! I ended up adding my leftover diced Christmas ham into it and think it was a great combination.

Made a double batch as I had so many garlic bulbs given to me. I still have many bulbs remaining to do other things with it. At least garlic has a good shelf life! 🙂
