Vegan Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2013
I've made this recipe several times. My husband is Puerto Rican, so I'm always looking for Hispanic recipes, especially ones with black beans. The first couple of times I made it, it was good, but I felt as if it were missing some flavor - not spice - just flavor. At first I was just adding flavor by using the Bush's Seasoned black beans, which are great to use with all 4 cans that are called for. I still felt like it needed a little more flavor, so I add 2 mini packets of Sazon Goya (Coriander & Annatto) (bright orange & pink box) seasoning and it's wonderful! Just what it needed. I love this recipe and I do thank the publisher for a wonderful gift. My kids love this too. The recipe as written makes quit a bit, so I usually end up freezing about 1/3 of the soup. It freezes well.

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
Perfect base ingredients, but after I made it, I felt that it was missing a flavor burst, so I added a small packet of Goya seasoning mix (orange packet) and that did it!

Ghirardelli® Magic Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
I made these just the other day for a city swim meet where I serve about 300 people in the course of a weekend. They disappear faster than any other baked good offered throughout the weekend! If you are not a coconut lover, YOU WILL BE!
