Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
If I could give this 3 and half stars, that would be ideal. :) This is a great starter recipe, but definitely needed a bit of tweaking. For me, it was too much cayenne, not nearly enough salt, and definitely needed more cumin. I doubled the cumin, used full salt chicken broth, flavored the broth with the cumin and cayenne to infuse the rice with the flavors. I saw someone suggest using lime, but I didn't have any. However I did have some Chili Lime rub, so I added that, yum! If I'd had cilantro and salsa, they would have been welcome additions. I made homemade tortillas to go with, and accidentally oversalted them, but it evened out with the slightly bland rice and beans. It's definitely a great starter, but it needs your own flare.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
I would say that is a little too much salt, too. I nearly halved it, and it was still quite salty. It would probably be fine if you used unsalted butter. Otherwise, use less salt. Other than that, I added a little more sugar and some vanilla because I like my pancakes sweet. But it's a great base recipe.
