Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
I followed the recipe almost to the letter (no honey or salt at all at first, anchovy fillets rather than paste, and put all ingredients in a food processor). After letting sauce sit at room temp, I thought it tasted very good, but wanted a lot more kick (and some sweetness/honey). Added a tsp of honey, more oregano, basil, anchovy (not for everybody, I know), and cayenne. Then I cooked it on low for an hour. The flavors really developed (so much that I think it would be delicious over pasta).I give this four stars for a wonderful starter recipe that any cook can then season to taste. I look forward to making this again, and tweaking with whatever fresh Italian herbs I have on hand. (For those who don't like too much heat/spice/sweetness/anchovy and therefore rated this recipe low, I'd suggest cutting down on those ingredients to begin with, let the sauce sit, and then decide whether to add the given quantities. Also, if using anchovies, add any additional salt only after the sauce has been allowed to sit, according to taste).

Mashed Potato Quesadilla

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
This is a good basic recipe. A local restaurant used to make a version of it and we loved every bite. If you're not concerned with adding calories: I add a dollop of sour cream, a dollop of whipped cream cheese, cheddar cheese, cilantro, and roasted garlic to the mash (for flavor and moisture). I use a sandwich press so don't need to use butter. The quesadillas come out crisp and golden in about 3 mins. Delicious with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole on the side. We eat these twice a month at least.

Vegan Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Loved it. I made my own beans from scratch to cut down on sodium, and added a bit more heat (cayenne/dried chili peppers), and a bottle of dark beer. My family loved it.
