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

I wish I had read the reviews before I made the salad. It definitely needs more fruit and dressing. Next time, I'll probably use pine nuts instead. We really like the flavor - it just needs more of it.

Re:Blueberry Lime Cheesecake

I made this at the request of a young man who had done a favor for me. The 4 stars are because I did not actually get to taste it, but it got rave reviews from those who did. I do not currently have a food processor or blender, so I communicated with Abby re: alternatives to pureeing - suggestion: potato masher or fork to mash. This worked very well, but I had small flecks of blue skin in a cream colored base. It may have been due to the blueberries I had access to - very green inside, but definitely ripe - or the mashing process.Also, I made a shortbread crust as vanilla wafers were not available. I have been requested to make it again sometime.

Re:Caramel Croissant Bread Pudding

First of all, let me say - I love this, it's delicious. That being said, I'd love to know what kind of stove it is being cooked on. It took me 15 minutes to get to the amber stage - I kept resetting my timer after 5 minutes. I got nervous when it seized up, but I kept going and it did (eventually) dissolve. Well, one little piece didn't. I used a 5 quart pot and had to keep moving it off the burner so it wouldn't boil over.I know that the stovetop I am using is not very good, but I would rate the recipe 5 starts if the timing in the were adjusted to account for variables.Next time I make it, and there will be a next time, I'm going to add chopped up bittersweet chocolate (72% or more)for my chocoholic son.

Re:Bacon-Wrapped Sonoran Hot Dogs

My son and I just had these for dinner. We both loved them, but we thought the mayonnaise sauce was thin. Are the measurements correct: 4 teaspoons mayonnaise and a whole lemon? Perhaps 1/2 a lemon or more mayonnaise would have made a less runny sauce. I did use bottled salsa verde, but it was still excellent. We definitely intend to have them again.
