Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
This is an easy, tasty recipe. I made a few minor changes: I skipped the cheese due to allergy and I made it into a hot dish versus a cold one. I turned out great. I will definitely make it again. I might ad a bit of red pepper to give it a bit more heat.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
Nice, healthy recipe. Requires a bit of chopping but the result is good. Next time I will add the lemon zest - I think that will be a nice addition.,

Red Pepper Chimichurri

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
Well, this was my first time trying chimchurri. I used half the recommended oil and half the recommended salt. 3 Tbls of salt would be way too much. I'm not a big vinegar fan but I found the taste interesting. We used it for a dip with crackers. Tomorrow I will try it on chicken. The recipe makes a lot!

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2014
This is an easy recipe that tastes good. I pretty much followed the recipe except for using tamari sauce instead of soy sauce and using a bit less sesame oil than is called for in the recipe. I thought that it was tasty. Some members of the family thought that I should have added a bit more water to the sauce, which I will do next time. All in all, an easy, tasty, "unique" noodle dish.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
I think that this is a really good basic recipe but I found it a bit bland. I think with a few additions, it would be a great recipe. I haven't worked out what the additions should be but one of the other reviewers probably has!

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
This is a a easy, quick recipe but I found it to be on the bland side. I'm used to Indian food so maybe I just need more spices in my food - that is a very individual aspect.

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
In general, I like this recipe - the ingredients, the texture,and the fact that it is healthy. But it needs more flavor - some herbs and spices. I think if I got the right mix of herbs + spices this would be a 5 star recipe.

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
This soup is really easy and really good. I followed the recipe as given except for leaving out the yogurt and cheese and using oil instead of butter (due to a milk allergy).

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
The first time that I made these brownies I found them to be dry. I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't put on the frosting. The second time I made them I put on the frosting and they were fantastic. Thus, either the zucchini was dry the first time around or the frosting makes a difference. I gave them 3 stars the first time around. I've updated that rating to 5 stars.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Really easy recipe. I added fresh cilantro, which is always a nice touch. I will also try black beans instead of red next time, but they taste great and look nice.
