Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad
Lighten up the dressing. I have loved Broccoli Slaw since the first time I've tried it. I've tweaked the recipe some and it's better and even lighter tasting. 1) Halve the dressing recipe and leave out the flavor packet. Especially when you let this sit, it gets oily. You only need half, but pump up the flavor by adding a flavored oil (orange infused olive oil is nice) and season the dressing with salt and pepper. Add a Tablespoon of soy sauce or tamari. 2) Slivered or sliced almonds is a nice swap. 3) Add madarin oranges (canned in water), craisins and/or golden raisins for sweetness instead of all that sugar. Agree with other reviewers, DO NOT cook the noodles - put everythign together and let sit for 30 minutes before serving to soften the uncooked noodles in the sauce.

Moroccan Tagine
Excellent!! Very easy to make (except cutting the butternut of course). Recommend making all of the vegetables consistent size, about the same as the garbanzo beans for the best mix in each bite. I added cumin and cinnamon as other reviewers have mentioned and it really benefitted from the additional flavor. Extremely filling, could have halved the recipe and still had leftovers.

Beet and Cheddar Risotto
This recipe was good, but I wasn't blown away. I made the risotto up to the point of adding the cheese and felt it was the right consistency and the flavor of beets was really coming through. It definitely needed salt to bring out the flavor. I was hesitant to overwhelm the dish with the cheese so only used half. It tasted good, but ended up very cheddary tasting. I'd recommend if you like the beet flavor to add 1/4-1/2 the cheese in the original recipe and add some acid in the form of lemon juice or some green onion at the end. Otherwise, a great idea for risotto. Really like using the whole beet, greens and all.
