Classic Texas Caviar
This is a nice alternative to a more tomato-centric salsa, and a nice change of pace. It's good scooped up with chips, used to top tacos or nachos, or scooped onto a bed of greens as a cold salad. I usually dice up an avocado and throw that in, if it's going to be eaten in one sitting by a large group (avocado will brown if it sits too long, even with the acidic vinegar and spices). I have also done it with one can of black beans, one can of blackeyed peas, and it's good either way. As with most Tex-Mex-ish things, I've found it to be worth the additional effort to grind fresh cumin from seeds if you have a mortar/pestle or molcajete. The difference in flavor is stunning.

Easy Oatmeal Cookies
These taste good. Following the recipe almost to the letter (omitted raisins because I don't like oatmeal raisin cookies, and subbing almonds for walnuts)there is no way the finished product looks like the picture that accompanies this recipe. Usually, when it's a drop cookie recipe, the cookies spread on their own. These stay in the little haystacks you drop from the spoon, and don't get any bigger, either. Again, they're not bad. They're cakey, spiced oat cookies that definitely bring a scone more to mind than a traditional cookie. Those looking for a traditional oatmeal cookie should probably look to another recipe, but these aren't bad cookies, by any means.

Tater Tot Casserole
Good basic comfort food recipe that you can prepare as-is, or dress up however you see fit. I have added different spice and/or seasoning blends while cooking the beef and onions (taco seasoning is a nice change of pace, so is Penzeys Tsardust Memories/Russian blend). I also fill in the whole top with tater tots, and generally sprinkle the top with shreds of whatever cheese I have on hand. Adding various vegetables could be interesting...thus far, I've only ever added extra mushrooms. It's a good starting point for taking a comfort food classic some fun places, but it's great as written, too!
