Mushroom, Spinach and Cheese Torta
Great recipe -- made a really nice presentation for a meal with out of town guests, and everyone loved it. Followed recipe for filling, but substituted puff pastry for the phyllo, and the recipe made enough to fill both puff pastry sheets, so it made two tortas. - I put the filling down the center, then folded each side over, and pinched it together at the top, pinched the ends together, then brushed all with melted butter. They only needed to bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, and they puffed up and looked really beautiful. And, YUM! Will be making these again.

Apple Dip
Really good dip. I quite enjoyed the sweetness of the brown sugar and the vanilla. Tasty!

West African Peanut Stew
This was very good, especially the way the sweet potatoes got very soft and kind of melted into the stew a bit. But I would say it is a little too tomato-y, my whole family agreed. Next time I make it, I would use a regular size can if tomatoes instead of one of the big 16oz ones, and I would add the tomatoes in after the onion, garlic and ginger are sautéed and cook them down a little, because adding the tomato at the end left the dish with a canned-tomato taste, even though I simmered for an additional hour. I also changed a couple things - I used spinach instead of kale which worked fine, and I added about 1 tablespoon of cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon (from another recipe) -- the spices added a nice subtle flavor to the stew.
