Spinach-Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
Great recipe. If you would like to use fresh green beans, simply steam them with a little salt and pepper (either on the stove or in the microwave) beforehand. We also added some sauteed onion and mushrooms...and just as the author stated, this is a recipe that lends itself to being creative and adding in extra ingredients.

Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
Great blend of spices and beans. I was short on time so I substituted 2 (15.25 ounce) cans each of prepared, lower sodium pinto beans and kidney beans. I also threw in a bottle of dark beer (use a non-sweet porter or stout). To cook the dish, I browned the onions and bacon together. Then I threw in the beans and other ingredients except for the cilantro. I brought all the ingredients to a boil for a few minutes then reduced the heat and simmered for about 30 minutes. I threw the cilantro in towards the end. I'm sure the slow cook method is better and more authentic, but in a crunch, this was muy delicioso.

Green Bean and Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
I made this salad for an extended family Father's Day dinner and it was liked by people of all ages. The number of compliments was impressive. The only change I made to the recipe was to roast the red onion (add it to the roasting mix at the same time as the asparagus), add a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar to the mixture, and roast the vegetables (green beans, red onion, and asparagus) for at least 30 minutes. With the roasting time in the original recipe, the veggies were too hard for easy eating.
