Quinoa Salad with Dried Fruit and Nuts
I found it disappointingly bland. I only made a cup of quinoa but kept the seasoning measuments the same. Still, it was very bland in my opinion. I ended up toasting the walnuts and some sunflower seeds, added a couple of pinches of Jamaican curry powder, about a teaspoon or so of light soy sauce, and a teaspoon of raw sugar. It was an improvement.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries
This was pretty darned good. It actually came out better than I thought it would. I inadvertently changed it by grabbing marjoram instead of oregano, but that didn't change it too much. The chicken (skin on) came out beautifully crisp. The potatoes, on the other hand, did not have the consistency of fried but rather roasted potatoes with a nice crust to them. I happen to like them that way so I wasn't disappointed. As for the comments that it was bland, you get out what you put in my darlings. This isn't Indian or Szechuan food. It's just an easy chicken and potatoes meal using a nice mix of herbs. If you want more spice, adjust the amount and/or type of seasoning you're using. It's a very adaptable recipe.

Beef and Cabbage Stew
OMG! I just finished a huge bowl of this and would have had more if I wasn't so stuffed! I've been cooking for the last four and a half decades and have made more than my share of stews. I would have to say that this is the best darned pot of stew that I've ever made! Now, I can't stand folks who rate a recipe 5 stars and then go on to tell you the myriad changes they made to the original. Submit your own recipe if your version is so terrific. That being said, LOL, here are the minimal changes that I made. For health reasons I used reduced sodium broth and salt free tomato sauce. I also found a salt free onion soup mix and used a tablespoon of that instead of the cube of salt-laden bullion. I also left out the celery as I didn't have any and caramelized the onions to add a bit more depth of flavor. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. Oh, I added a bit of flour towards the end as I am not partial to thin stew. Even with the salt reduced to almost nothing, the taste was wonderful. All the flavors melded together without any one ingredient outshining the others. All in all, a very easy, flavorful stew for a chilly or raw fall or winter night. Thank you Paul for submitting.
