Purple Ombre Layer Cake
Okay, this is where I love recipes...you can always tweek. Look at this work of art. What do you see? Lavender! So guess what? I added lavender to the darkest layers. I love the taste and smell of lavender in baking. WOW...didn't want to eat it...too pretty and I didn't want the aroma to end! Thx Bree!

Grilled Pacific Rim Tuna Salad
I live "up north" after living in southern FL for years. I miss the variety of fresh seafood and salads you could get everywhere so easily. You are limited in this region. So when I saw this, it instantly brought back memories of sitting outside the intercoastal area at a restaurant with such foods. I put this together, and wala, there it was again...great memories of a sea breeze, fresh foods, carribean music, etc. My tweek to this was to add mango! You can lightly grill mango if you pay attention to it so it does not overheat so much that it melts. With the grape tomatoes, I added red grapes. The dressing recipe provided is spot on. One time, I used a simple poppyseed dressing b/c I was short on time, and that truly popped...it was great. I also tried toasted walnuts and I liked that taste best. This is a refreshing tropical must have for our recipe boxes! Thanks BC!

Key Lime-Banana Smoothie
Totally yummo. It took me to the FL Keys for a brief moment...tropical with that great kick of lime. I even added 1/2 of a lime to get that pulpy texture. :-)
And a call out to "grego...", it sounds like you go too extreme on your "organic" flair. Perhaps you should try some fresher ingredients and make it again. If at first you don't succeed... But if for some reason, you do not like it again...don't write a review...reviews are used by people genuinely trying to duplicate the recipe by rating a recipe or by enhancing it with suggestions. It is not, however, a place for manure, and don't worry, you can sleep safely knowing that noone will try to find you.
