Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
Like many others, I baked them. 375 for 22 minutes, or until crispy. Cut them into thirds. More than doubled the recipe and used 8" flour tortillas and got 11 out of the batch(33 pieces). Used a whole can of pinto beans (I was out of black beans), added 1 TBSP minced cilantro, 3/4 cup frozen corn kernels and 1/2 cup spinach (these ingredients are more than doubled). Also used a Mexican Four Cheese blend instead of just Monterey Jack.

Moroccan Couscous

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Served this with the Lamb L'Arabique and Moroccan Couscous. I thought this was a great blend of spices and just enough couscous to vegetable blend. The fresh squeezed orange juice and zest did not overwhelm the flavors at all. I did add an extra 1/2 cup of broth (just prior to adding the couscous) and covered the pan with a lid for an additional 5 minutes to get the zucchini softened, then I added the couscous. I had the mint chopped and ready to go in and forgot it! Still really liked the recipe, so if you don't like mint, leave it out. I'll try it again today with the mint in this time.

Cucumber Raita

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Followed the recipe exactly (first time with this cuisine), and the consistency and flavor was very good. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a bit tart, but that was fine when eaten with the Lamb L'Arabique and Moroccan Couscous that I served it with. Next time, maybe a bit more sugar or honey (as another reviewer suggested).

Lamb L'Arabique

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Did not change a thing in this recipe, which is really unusual for me, because this was my first attempt at this type of cuisine. Not one spice overwhelmed the overall flavor, so if there is one you normally don't like, still add it. The blend results in a great flavor. Well worth the prep time. I used a Serrano chile and, next time, I will use a hotter chile (to add a little more bite, which I like). Served this with Moroccan Couscous and Cucumber Raita. The raita was great with both dishes. The combination made for a great meal.
