Lemon Cranberry Whole Wheat Muffins
I followed this recipe exactly as written except I didn't have applesauce so I boiled some chopped up apples with a little water and mashed it to make my own. Since it was a little lumpier it actually left chunks of apple in the muffins which was great. I also added sliced almonds and it turned out great!!! Delicious and healthy!

Lentil Soup with Lemon
DELICIOUS!! I pureed everything as I wanted a thick and not chunky soup. The only thing I changed was that I added some curry powder and about a teaspoon of chipotle chili powder. That smokey taste gave the soup some really amazing flavor. Definitely a keeper recipe! I wanted to keep eating it long after I was full because the flavors were just so great!

Cuban Ropa Vieja
Well, we already had some great tender beef so I somewhat adapted this recipe. I cooked the onion and green peppers with oil and garlic (at least double what it called for), then I added the beef stock, tomato paste, and used a can of enchilada sauce instead of tomato sauce to give it more flavor and less of a tomatoey taste. Although I adapted the recipe, I still give it only 4 stars because I had to add quite a bit more seasoning to get it to taste delicious instead of just okay. It's a great base recipe! I served it more mexican style with corn tortillas and traditional toppings but it would be great with rice and beans as well!
