Re:Quinoa and Avocado Salad with Dried Fruit, Toasted Almonds, and Lemon-Cumin Vinaigrette

Excellent!Thanks to user comments, I doubled the vinaigrette, which was needed,Pretty sure I overcooked the quinoa a bit....I will reduce the water ratio next time.

Re:Spicy Maple Walnuts

These were SO yummy! I used pecan halves instead of walnuts (only small walnut pieces available in my store) - thanks lobsterwoman for suggesting pecans! I also increased the ginger slices and tabasco (thanks cejh), for a bit more heat. These would make an amazing hostess gift.

Re:Beef & Black Bean Chili with Chipotle & Avocado

I made this today for our Grey Cup party (Canadian Football League equivalent of the Super Bowl).Delicious!My only modification was ground bison, not beef.The acidity of the cilantro and the avocado/lime/onion "salsa" as garnish was perfect....I will SO be making this again!

Re:Turkey Soup with Dill, Parsley, and Chive Dumplings

Before trying this recipe, I had never simmered a turkey/chicken carcass for more than 2 hours. Consider me a convert! I was AMAZED at the depth of flavour that resulted from those extra hours in the pot. And yes, the dumplings were fantastic (I was able to use all fresh herbs). I had to force myself to be patient and allow them to fluff up properly. 100% will make this again!

Re:Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Wild Mushrooms and Cream

This recipe is fantastic!I made it for a Thanksgiving dinner we hosted (in Canada, Thanksgiving is the 2nd Monday in October) and was asked to make it for a 2nd dinner later that month. One diner stated that he had never eaten more brussels sprouts in his life! The colour of the fresh chanterelles was a perfect foil for the deep green of the sprouts that resulted from roasting.A rich, luxurious side dish.
