Spicy Roasted Edamame

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
I thought that these came out just "ok". I expected there to be a lot more flavor but I felt that it was pretty bland. I will say that the first couple of pieces were eh but the more I ate the more they grew on me. If I ever decide to make this again I will add kosher salt into the mixture to bring out the flavors more and I'll add cayenne pepper and more chili powder to intensify the heat. Also, like many of the reviewers before me I also had to increase the cook time. It took forever for these guys to roast. Probably about 30-45 minutes. I'd suggest baking at a higher temp. to see if that makes a difference.

Easy Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This salad is so simple and yet so amazingly awesome. I used extra virgin olive oil instead of the grapeseed oil because that's what I had on hand. I also used shredded parm cheese instead of the grated because I like the larger pieces that you get.

Chicken Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Very delicious. Used southwest-style corn instead of the mexican-style but other than that stuck to the recipe. This is a great recipe and you have room to add additional items like crumbled tortilla chips, guac, cheese, etc.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Definitely 5 stars. I used cilantro paste because I'm lazy and used a bit more garlic. This is delicious and I can't wait to make it again.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
This was amazing. It came out so fluffy and moist. I went off of what a couple of other reviews had said and I only used 3 eggs. I also used cinnamon swirl bread, added another tablespoon of melted butter, and i added craisins to the mix. Turned out lovely! I also had to keep it in the oven a bit longer (maybe 10-20 mins) because I have never made this before and I didn't know exactly how cooked the center needed to be. It bled a little too much of the liquid when i went poking around. Turned out lovely and I will definitely be making this again. :)
