Mexican Bean Salad
A good recipe for a make-once, eat-all-week lunch. I'm not usually a fan of beans/bean salads, but I thought I'd give this a try since it seemed healthy and filling while still being convenient and easy. After making it last night and having a portion for lunch today, I've added this one to my recipe box to make again. While I wouldn't rave about this as some others have, the flavors are interesting enough that I don't think I'll get sick of it even after eating it all week (a problem I have a lot with eat-all-week lunches). I followed the recipe as written, but didn't add any hot sauce/chili powder since I can't handle the heat! As almost all others have noted, the amount of dressing is a little excessive/unnecessary so I'll probably cut that in half next time. Otherwise, I thought the flavors were good and I wouldn't change a thing.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats
these turned out pretty well! i made the addition of an extra tablespoon of peanut butter and left out the salt, but otherwise, followed the rest as written. a lot of reviewers wrote about increasing the pumpkin to a cup, but a few wrote about how that made the dough too sticky/difficult to work with. i started out with the recommended half cup and it seemed fine...definitely made a stiff dough, but you need it that consistency if you want to be able to roll it out easily. i used fresh pureed pumpkin, so that may have made the dough easier to work with since it's not as dry as the canned variety...i would suggest starting with the 1/2c and adding more as you go until you get a consistency you like. i whisked everything but the flour together, then used a wooden spoon to incorporate the flour and then my hands to knead it a bit before rolling out. i have 2 little dogs, 1 of which is a slightly picky eater who doesn't typically like biscuits. i was surprised that she ate it, although she didn't seem too excited about it...the other 1 gobbled them up :) i only baked mine for about 1/2 an hour and they didn't come out completely hard (partially because i thought the picky eater wouldn't like them as much if they were hard), so i'm not sure how these will keep...

Chinese Pearl Meatballs
great recipe! I made this recipe without the onion (bf doesn't like onions), but everything else as written and it turned out great with good flavor. it's hard to find good Chinese food out here in Colorado, so I was glad to find this recipe so I can at least make some good Chinese at home. thanks for the recipe!
