Turkey Meatballs
Holy moly this has 2,213 mg of salt in every serving!!! That's outrageous and over a day's worth of sodium. NO thanks, that's inedible and a waste of good food. To make this better, you would have to eliminate the Rice a Roni and soup mix, which are both notorious for excessive sodium. Replace them with no salt beef/chicken or veggie bouillon, and use regular rice and add a bunch of spices like sage, garlic and onion powder. Real onion would help, too. But then that would be a whole new recipe, not this one. Sorry, I'm not going to even attempt this one.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs
I made this tonight and we loved them, but as other reviewers have stated, it needs spices, which is why I rated it a 4, not 5. I added garlic, onion powder, a little pepper and parsley. I also added sage but thought it was a little too much at 1/2 a tsp, maybe a 1/4 tsp would have been plenty. Also, I left out the cheese in the recipe (we're lactose intolerant) and also the salt some reviewers suggested, because turkey and the bread crumbs put this meal over 300 mg. of salt already - which is plenty. I also used Pam instead of the oil to save calories and grease. Cooking time was perfect, and I appreciate the tip to use an ice cream scooper, which keeps all the balls around the same size so they cook uniformly. This is a good, basic recipe which even my picky husband loved. Thanks!

Pantry Curried Quinoa with Garbanzo Beans and Roasted Peppers
I liked this recipe, but think it had too much curry powder. We didn't have any so we used chili powder, and cut it way down because we don't like too much heat. We could also have cut out the red peppers; I think that they are not necessary. But the rest of the flavors are great. We didn't have raisins, and didn't want so much sugar so we used slightly sweetened cranberries, and I forgot to toast the almonds, but it was still very good, thanks!
