Asian Lettuce Wraps
This is really good AS IS, but I always tweak a little to suit my own tastes. I like mine a tad spicier. I noticed that someone gave less stars because their lettuce broke open. That's not the recipe's fault - just means their iceberg lettuce was really fresh and crunchy. A good fresh lettuce to use, that won't crack, is Bibb lettuce. Most major grocers carry it and it doesn't detract from the original intended flavor one bit. This recipe is going to save me a lot of money! : )

Puffed Cauliflower Cheese
No one else in my home will eat cauliflower, so when my dad sent me a large head of romanesco cauliflower (google it for some wild pictures of it), I decided to transform it into a casserole that would keep for a couple days. The romanesco is an unusually spicy cauliflower which I am sure enhanced the overall outcome. Still, this is a good recipe. In an effort to make it less quiche-y (as some people commented), I used only 2 eggs instead of the 3 called for in the recipe. I sauteed one medium onion and added a couple teaspoons of minced garlic at the end of the saute. I believe it turned out perfect. I added a little grated cheese on top during the last 5 minutes & it was gorgeous to look at.

Mexican Layered Dip
This is really good. I made the slightest of changes in that I mixed just a bit of the taco seasoning into the refried beans & then the rest into the sour cream. Also, instead of topping it all with the guacamole, I went in this order: beans, guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, jalapenos. The reason for this is that the avocado browns when exposed to air. You can squirt lime juice over it to help slow it down, but it's just easier to put the guac between the beans and the sour cream. No browning. :-) Also, I think you can use softened cream cheese in place of the sour cream if you prefer.
