Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I've made this recipe over 20 times now and have made minor changes, ie. using organic plum tomatoes over regular, using more onions and garlic, using loose ground beef over meatballs, and simmering with cooked pasta. These changes, I think make the sauce even more delicious. I've blogged about it here: http://dritgirl.com/2013/05/06/recipe-dr-it-girls-holy-grail-homemade-spaghetti-sauce/

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
****BEST VERSION***: I've made these about 5 times now and everytime I find a way to improve it. The last time I made this, I must say blew me out of the water! For a dinner for two, I halved what the recipe calls for. Best adjustments so far: add ground coriander (same quantity as what you use for cumin and added at the same step as when you add the cumin), grate the yams then microwave for 50 seconds before mixing in, and because the recipe is very mild I increased the jalapeno to 1.5 times what they call for and chop them more roughly so you get more bits of spice, increase the garlic to 1.5 times what they call for and roughly chop them, and the most important change i made was to FRY THEM! in a frying pan with a couple tablespoons of olive oil each side until nice and crispy dark brown. Helpful hints: use your hands to mash everything together (it's much faster than using a spoon), then use an ice cream scooper to scoop them onto the frying pan then mash them down with a spatula. I think this version really enhances the flavor of this recipe.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
TIP: add 3 tablespoons of tomato paste to 1 lb ground beef and 2-3 tablespoons of this taco seasoning, and a splash of water til you get the right consistency. The tomato paste makes a huge difference.
