Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
Excellent recipe; so filling and tasty! I did use cayenne pepper and jalapeno rather than hot sauce, and I did increase the cumin, but other than that I followed the recipe. These are just as good when you bake them. I plan to make more and freeze them so I have them on hand for those days when I don't feel like cooking or don't have time. Thanks for sharing!

Garlic Basil Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Very good mashed potatoes; I really enjoyed the basil in this but had to double the garlic powder to suit my tastes. Dried basil worked fine but I think this would be even better with fresh basil in the summer. Good side for an italian style meal. Thanks for sharing!

Whipped Cardamom Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Excellent potatoes, I really enjoyed the cardamom, which takes a simple dish to the next level. I didn't whip the potatoes, I just mashed them up with a fork. I used cayenne pepper rather than white pepper, but otherwise I stuck to the recipe. The fried shallots are the perfect finish. Thanks for sharing!

Tropical Coconut Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
A nice base recipe but rather bland as written. I added cumin, red chili powder, and some cinnamon. I cut the amount of peas in half because I wanted to enjoy the coconut flavor, which I brought out even more by sprinkling each bowl with some shredded, unsweetened coconut. Nice recipe to start with, but be sure to add some spices.

Sugo Rosso (Red Sauce)

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
Very nice sauce, classic summertime flavors. fresh basil really makes the dish. I increased the garlic (b/c I can't get enough of it), and next time I might add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a little kick at the end. However, it is delicious just as written. Thanks for sharing!

Four Cheese Margherita Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Classic flavors that I love, but the addition of feta takes it to another level. This is great summer pizza when you have lots of basil and fresh tomatoes. Thanks for sharing!

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Wonderful smoothie, I left out the protein supplement since I didn't have any on hand but other than that I followed the recipe. Even without the protein it was quite filling. I like that I can switch the fruit for a different flavor, so far strawberries, blueberries, and peaches have all been very tasty. Thanks for sharing!

Fiesta Pita

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
very nice recipe, and super easy to make. I prefer pepper jack or, if I can get it, queso fresco, in these types of recipes rather than feta. The hot sauce was not great in this, better to use a spicier salsa. Next time maybe I'll use black beans for even more protein. Overall a really good, filling dish. Thanks for sharing!

Fiesta Chopped Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
Very nice salad; pretty and definitely healthy. I had some cilantro to use up from my garden and that was a nice addition. Thanks for sharing!

Mexican Potato Nachos

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
Really great twist on your usual nachos. I am a vegetarian so I didn't use any beef. Other than that I followed the recipe and found it to be very filling; this could easily be a filling dinner. I definitely recommend trying this one. Thanks for sharing!

Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
A pleasant and welcome surprise. The only change I made was to use butter rather than margarine and cut back a bit on the sugar (3/4 cup). I tried it with and without the glaze and while it is five-star worthy to me without the glaze, adding it takes the orange flavor over the top and makes it really special. Walnuts are delicious but not necessary, I'd try swapping them for chocolate chips if you are serving this to someone with a nut allergy. Thanks for sharing!

Couscous with a Kick!

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
Absolutely LOVE all the flavors in this dish. The fresh herbs and spiciness from the jalapeno really makes this dish so yummy. I enjoyed this with pearl couscous but next time I think I'll try it out with quinoa to make it more filling. Adjust the cayenne to your taste, this amount of heat isn't for everyone. Thanks for sharing!

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
Very nice dressing, the only thing I would change up next time is increase the cilantro (I love that stuff) and the jalapeno because I like the spicy/sweet combo. This would also work really well as a marinade. Thanks for sharing!

Fruit Galore Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
I really like this recipe, especially how versatile it is since you can change up the combination of fruits based on what is in season, on sale, looks good, etc.. I used vanilla pudding rather than whipped topping and I think that made for a better base, I made a simple syrup and added vanilla extract because I couldn't find vanilla flavored syrup in my grocery store. I'd definitely recommend this recipe, you can do a lot with it and it comes out looking so pretty!

Hummus Layer Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
Very nice twist on 7 layer dip, and you can change up the flavor a bit by using different types of hummus. I love the garlic flavored hummus but for variety I think roasted red pepper or artichoke hummus would work very nicely. Perfect for a party with the recipe for baked pita chips I found on here. Thanks for sharing!

Roasted Garlic Zucchini and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
Really nice dish, I did make it in the oven but it could also easily be made on the stovetop. Great dish to use up summer veggies and you can cut back on the oil and skip the cheese if you want to make it even healthier. Thanks for sharing!

Penne Pasta with Veggies

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This is a very good pasta dish, and the flavors of the vegetables really shine. There isn't any need to drown the vegetables in herbs and spices, but I do think some red pepper flakes would be delicious and add a nice kick. Still, it was yummy just as written also. Thanks for sharing!

Corn with Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
great summer side dish, simple and great for picnics. i did make it in the microwave but next time I'd make it even better but frying up the onions and making it all on the stovetop. Thanks for sharing!
