Not My Lucky Week....

I tried 3 new recipes this week that I found on other blogs. I won't make any of them again. Sometimes I wonder if it is just me!

Black Bean Burger
I followed the recipe except I left out the "spicy"spices for my kids. My 4 year old really loved them but I could not get over the texture. I guess I expected the texture to magically be like a hamburger when really it was more like mashed beans. I'll have to keep looking at recipes as I would love to find a vegetarian burger I like.

Ethiopian Lentil Stew
The spice combination turned out really weird - smelled great but tasted strange. I added some more red pepper and tomato sauce to overpower that and was able to salvage it. Not sure why this one didn't turn out great either.

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins
Hmm! I don't think I like yogurt muffins. Or maybe it was the brand lemon yogurt I picked - just something unnatural about it. At the risk of sounding like the picky one in my family - my kids ate them up in a hurry.
