Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
This was fine, but kind of bland. I'm not sure what it was missing. Maybe some colorful veggies.

Quinoa and Black Beans
Really yummy, we used this as filling for a tortilla shell and ate it like a taco. I used 3/4 cup white wine and 3/4 cup broth since I had some open wine to use, will make this again!

Black Bean Brownies
This is a really good recipe for a lighter brownie. I gave it 4 since its not chewy. But its still yummy. Even my boyfriend was surprised it had black beans in it.
