Spicy Black Bean Salad
Simple,delicious and easy to throw together. I prefer to use green onions instead of red, though. Oh, the olive oil may very well solidify in the fridge, so let it sit out a few minutes before serving.

Cranberry Apple Cake
This was very moist, not too heavy, just lightly spiced, and very fruity. I followed the recipe as written except I cut the brown sugar to 1 1/2c and it was just sweet enough for my tastes, cause I like tartness. I used a handheld mixer to mix it all up. The batter might not seem like it will cover all the fruit, but it bakes up beautifully. I cooled it for 15 minutes in the pan on a rack, then turned it out to finish cooling. You could easily substitute other fruit or use all one type of fruit. Would easily accept other spice combinations as well. I might try pears and ginger next time.

Chicken Noodle Salad with Peanut-Ginger Dressing
Yep, this one deserves 5 stars. I found the dressing amount to be just right, but I can see that others may want to increase it, just cause it's soooo yummy. You can easily switch the types of veggies and/or meats and still create an awesome salad! Thanks for this one :)
