Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
This is s.e.r.i.o.u.s.l.y. amazing! I tried it after reading many of the glowing reviews (of which I was highly skeptical). But it is very easy to prepare and the results are incredible. Please try this, you won't be sorry. Don't leave out a thing! I almost left out the corn, thinking it wouldn't be missed. Instead I ran to the store and grabbed a bag of frozen kernels. The corn imparts a delicate sweetness and a little pop when you bite into it. I love to eat this dish with a heaping dollop of plain greek style yogurt, green onions, cilantro and bit of finely minced hot pepper (a red one is especially pretty) Thank you thank you thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Wow! This was amazing, I will make this recipe as often as possible. I used a lot less salt, 1/2 tsp but I think I will only use 1/4 tsp next time and see how that tastes. I drizzled a little olive oil on the asparagus so probably only used 1 Tbl. I used ALL the optional stuff...not an option to leave them out! Seriously! When the asparagus was ready I ate them on a wrap with just a little mayo and some mixed greens. Soooo good! But I couldn't keep away from it and ate the rest with my fingers. lol You simply have to try this recipe. :)

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
I have to tell you that I'm not much of a cook but I took this to an office potluck and people freaked out! They asked me how to make it, they wanted the recipe, they wanted to know where I 'bought' the chips and were floored when I said I made them. I'm so thrilled with this recipe. What a simple tasty dish with an original flair. I guarantee no one else will have this at your next get-together. I followed the recipe closely but omitted the sugars in the salsa as I thought there would be plenty of sweetness with the cinnamon chips. I forgot to buy butter spray so I brushed on melted butter to each chip before sprinkling the cinnamon and sugar on top. I used a pizza cutter on the tortillas thanks to another reviewers suggestion and that worked perfectly. Based on other suggestions I made sure to take the time to cut everything very small and used strawberry preserves. My only mild complaint was that this took me forever to make. Who knew such a simple recipe would take so long. At first I was like, Oh this is soooo much hour into it, not so much. lol. Oh and btw, I had a few tortillas left to bake and no more melted butter, so I just sprinkled them with water so that the cinnamon and sugar would adhere and they turned out fantastic. Lastly, I baked a flour tortilla in a oven proof bowl so that I could serve the fruit salsa in it. That was another spectacular suggestion. Thank you for the recipe and thank you all for the wonderful suggestions. Love this site!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I took this to a potluck and smiled while I watched everyone stand there and devour it. I'm not much of a cook, but this couldn't have been more simple to prepare. I couldn't find diced jalapeno peppers but used 1 can chopped chilies and 1 can hot chopped chilies which I did not drain. (they didn't seem to have that much liquid) Pefect! I read many reviews and followed the advice given. I grated my own parmesan and mixed about a 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs to sprinkle on top. Baked at 350 for 30 mins and served with sliced baguettes. My husband has now requested this for a potluck at his job next week. This is a keeper!

Drunk Dogs

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
These were incredible! I added just a touch of an asian 'chili with garlic' sauce, just to give it a bit of kick. Really, really yummy and so simple to make. Thanks for the recipe!

Velvety Pumpkin Soup With Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Yum, this is the best! I'm not even really a 'soup person', but this one intrigued me and it was certainly simple enough to prepare. I made it exactly as instructed and it was divine. How can you go wrong with blue cheese and bacon as a garnish?! A simple, elegant soup with 5 star restaurant taste and presentation. Thank you for the recipe!

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
These were really tasty, I'm so thrilled to add a new recipe to my 'repertoire'! I will certainly make these again (over and over) I think I'll try a touch less mayo next time, (purely for the sake of our arteries) and maybe experiment with different fillings. These were also very simple to make for a novice. Thanks!
