Healthy Garden Salad
This is a great recipe and very refreshing. Great use of edamame. Below are my changes. Instead of red wine vinegar, I used seasoned rice vinegar. I added extra cilantro and just mixed it in. Because I used seasoned rice vinegar, I reduced the salt from 3/4 to 1/2 tsp. Instead of frozen corn, I used two cans of whole corn kernels (the crisp and crunchy kind that is labelled that way). Instead of green onions, I used red onions chopped. For the garlic, I used two large garlic cloves

Lentil Soup with Lemon
This was the first recipe that I used for cooking lentils for the first time and it was great!!! I highly recommend this recipe. The only changes I made was only due to lack of ingredients at home and I didn't want to go out and buy more ingredients. I substituted the 1 tablespoon of tomato paste with 4 tablespoons of crushed tomatoes, replaced the chicken broth with boullion cubes with water therefore reducing the salt to less than 1/4 tsp. I used 1 1/2 cups of green lentils. I used a pressure cooker and cooked it on high to the second ring and let it naturally release until it reached the first ring and then quick released the pressure. If you have a pressure cooker, I would definitely recommend using it since it will cut the cooking time down tremendously.

Play Dough Cookies
The extra trick not mentioned on the recipe is to use food coloring gel (gives you more vibrant color) and the other one is after you roll it into a long snake, make sure you twist it so that the colors twist. After that, wrap it into a circle. This gives it a more rounded/twisted color. :) With this recipe, I actually made it for my son(no dairy/eggs) friendly. I replaced the cream cheese with toffutti immitation cream cheese and the egg with ener-G egg replacement. They turned out great.
