Online recipes I found and made that are actually good

You know what's the worst? You get your ass in gear, give up your sweet parking spot, and go to the store to get ingredients for a recipe you found online, and it turns out to be HORRIBLE. I read the reviews, I look through the ingredients and prep steps, but sometimes I just choose wrong. So, here's a list of recipes I've found online and made, and have turned out really well. One disclaimer: always season more than recipes say. I like my food spicy so I add crushed red pepper and/or cayenne to almost everything I make, but remember to add the flavors you like. And salt. Always salt. Enjoy.

Resolution Toasts - I made these on New Years. They are super delicious, even though the ingredients seem kind of weird.

Apple Cheddar Beer Bread - Don't over-mix. This stuff is bomb.

Black Bean, Corn, and Zucchini Enchiladas - I always give this recipe to new Vegetarians. Simple and good.

Lentil Tacos - Another recipe I always pass to the veg-curious. Also, that chipotle sour cream is good on pretty much everything.

Carmelized Butternut Squash Wedges with Sage Hazelnut Pesto - Amaaaaaxing (maximum amazing)

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes - Cheap, and the ultimate comfort food. I love these.

How to Make Gyoza - Time consuming, but worth it

Butternut Squash Posole - I made this vegetarian and it's a great hearty stew that's super filling

Stuffed Peppers with Black Beans and Corn - good to make for the week. Cover in salsa when you eat them. And i like to cut the pepper in half long ways because you get more crispy rice surface area.

Shaksouka (or eggs poached in tomato sauce) - I don't really follow this recipe, but the dish is my go-to quick dinner. I use BF's amazing homemade marinara, poach a few eggs in it, and eat with toast. Yummy, relatively healthy, and filling even for this hungry man.

Mom's Skinny Cheesecake - Yum.

I'm sure I'm forgetting some good ones. But these are the ones in recent rotation. Now I'm hungry.
