Sesame Noodle Salad
I have made this several times and it is always a hit. Served either hot or cold, it is delicious. I added sliced chicken breasts to it once to make it a meal, but usually offer as a side or vegan dish for some of my friends who eat plant-based foods. If you use the right noodles, you can make it gluten-free as well. It is good in all cases and very versatile.

Blueberry Oatmeal
I thought it was good, but had a little less flavor than I was expecting considering all of the additions. The carb count was a little high for my liking especially with the brown sugar mixed in and yet it wasn't very sweet. I also doubled the amount of blueberries and could have put more in.

Garlic Kale Quinoa
Very good blend of flavors. I made exactly as the recipe stated. I might use more kale next time, but it was wonderful as is.
