Grilled Apple and Swiss Cheese Sandwich
I like most things that incorporate apples and I found this recipe accidentally and was very excited about it. My husband refused to try it, but I really loved it. The only change I made was that I used butter on the bread instead of oil. I'm normally not a fan of rye bread, but it worked really well for this recipe. And as someone else said, next time, I would do thicker slices of the apple.

Vegetarian Reubens
I couldn't be any happier with this recipe! First of all, I don't like rye bread, I don't like sauerkraut, and I'm not too much of a fan of 1000 island dressing, but for some reason I was ecstatic to try these and as soon as I took the first bite, I was sold. My review is just one in a long list of reviews that say essentially the same thing: These are amazing! Things we did differently: We did not shred the cheese, but instead put it on top as you would with any other sandwich. We did not use the full 1/3 of a cup of dressing as the recipe for 2 sandwiches called for - instead we used slightly less. But seriously, these were just so good! They are super fast to make and great for families that have people who are not all vegetarians. My husband was able to put meat on his while I ate mine as is. Can't say enough about these except that I plan on having them again. (and again, and again...)

Vegetable Quesadillas
As others mentioned, it needs "something". Whether it be garlic, salsa, lemon, salt - it just needs something, otherwise it's incredibly bland. I tried adding ranch dressing, but didn't add a lot and so couldn't really taste it. I also doused it in cheese and couldn't really taste that either. I made it without onions or mushrooms and still had a ton of vegetables to try to fit into the tortillas. I managed to make it all fit, but if I had done onions and mushrooms - it never would have fit. I also noticed a lot of people did not add the carrots, but I did and think they were necessary to give it a slight variety in taste. They steamed just fine and were well done (I steamed for 4 minutes). A lot of people said turning over was hard, but didn't give any suggestions for *how* to turn over. So I took two plates and put them on top of the tortillas, then flipped the baking sheet and plates and was able to get the tortillas moved back onto the baking sheet with little issue. Flipping over any other way was nearly impossible (I tried!). These were incredibly filling and both my husband and I agreed that one quesadilla split in half would have been perfect for two of us. You can always make a small side if wanted, like rice or beans. I think next time we're going to try garlic and add some chicken or steak to his and my chicken-free chicken to mine. Oh, and watch the tortillas carefully as they burn quickly. I broiled for 3 minutes each side, and that was perfect.
