    I also thought it was a spark recipe, but disappointed it wanted me to sign up for another site to see the recipes. ugh disappointed - 4/3/2014   11:39:49 AM

    Where are the other 8 recipes? This article promised 11 recipes and only gave us 3. I clicked on the Family Circle link but it loaded way too slowly so I gave up waiting on that page. What gives? - 8/14/2013   8:28:31 AM

    Does it really count as a guest blogger when it's just an article reposted from another site? I, too, was expecting to see healthy recipes, not a sign in page. - 7/23/2013   9:46:26 PM
    I loved deviled eggs! This recipe looks fantastic! - 7/19/2013   9:23:38 AM
    I was disappointed too to find a log-in screen instead of a recipe. However, there are oodles of taco dip recipes on Sparkrecipes.com. Ditto for watermelon cucumber salad. - 7/19/2013   8:48:20 AM
    I like just going to the recipe. What's going on here. - 7/17/2013   1:31:10 PM

    I don't like to log in to another site to get a recipe--disappointing. - 7/16/2013   10:10:59 PM

    Spark has changed this site...........and not necessarily for the better. Remember, the more they can cause us to "click", the more money they make. - 7/16/2013   8:27:38 PM

    Ugh! Really?! - 7/16/2013   4:29:22 PM
    I agree, expected to find the recipes, not a log in screen - 7/16/2013   3:19:39 PM
    When I click on get recipe, I would like to see the recipe not a register page for a different site. - 7/16/2013   2:56:00 PM

    Layered taco link takes you to a Family Circle sign in page. - 7/16/2013   11:51:00 AM

    Shame on SparkEditors for not matching recipe to picture. I didnt see the watermelon recipe either, but it looks like watermelon, cukes, feta and either parsley or cilantro. Very trendy right now. Seen it featured a few times on different FoodNetwork shows. I made it once but not to my taste. - 7/16/2013   10:57:44 AM
    Does anyone see the recipe for the watermelon and cuke salad in the first pic? I can't seem to find it. - 7/16/2013   10:36:28 AM
