Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
It's easy to adapt this to a vegan, gluten-free diet. The egg and bread crumbs can be replaced with just over half a cup of grain mix (I used a mix of oats, brown rice, soybeans, millet and sorghum, but any of these on their own would probably do) and a splash of unflavored rice or soy milk. I like making them much smaller and serving them as vegetarian party food with various dips and grilled plantains on the side. A barbecued version would probably work great! The basic recipe is delightfully easy and I didn't experience the problem that so many reviewers commented on of the burgers falling apart, possibly because I didn't use a food processor. Automation can make it too easy to cross the boundary between chopping and liquification, especially if you're using anything from a tin. I've certainly found that when making falafel - which uses comparable ingredients - so I stayed away from the machine from the outset. It's more work, but (at least for me) has more predictable results and looks prettier!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)
Although some of the reviews had me worried, I found this recipe straightforward - with outstanding results. Some small suggested adjustments that can be made, depending on taste: 1) It's a big cake. You can halve the recipe successfully using 2 eggs + a small amount of oil (under a tsp) instead of 2 1/2 eggs. 2) 1 1/2 cups of whip for the topping is generous. You can use 1 or slightly less. 3) The cake is quite sweet, and 3/4 cup of sugar in the base and 1/2 in the topping instead of 1 is fine. I gave the topping some extra kick by adding a generous splash of rum, which my colleagues approved of! 4) To make sure the filling is soaked up evenly - unless you prefer a more varied texture - pierce the cooled base deeply and evenly all over, not just a few times as the recipe suggests.
