I'm one of those people guilty of changing all recipes. But I never leave a bad review. I have a couple of medical conditions that I need to eat to improve or prevent complications. Neal, I would have changed that recipe exactly as you did. But I confess often times I read recipes looking for ideas, not necessarily an exact formula. If the recipe is sound, changing the seasonings to suit individual tastes still makes it a great recipe. Now baking is a different story. The chemistry involved there requires precision.

My pet peeve about recipe sites are their search engines. If I'm looking for a recipe say for quinoa, I'm not looking for a main dish of roasted beef served with a side of quinoa simply boiled and salted. I'm looking for something imaginative done with the quinoa itself. Rarely do I find that.

Another thing is truth in labeling. If I'm looking for a hommus recipe, I expect to find one containing tahini. One day I was searching and had to read 9 recipes before I had one that contained tahini. Chickpea dip may be very tasty, but it's not hommus if it doesn't contain tahini.
