Earl Grey Martini

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
This was wonderful! I prefer vodka, so I used that but I'll try the gin soon. I didn't want to wait the 2 hours, so I microwaved the vodka for 40 secs (boiling at that point) and steeped the tea bag for 5 minutes. I cooled the "tea" in an ice bath for about 15 minutes, until it was room temp. Otherwise, I did everything as the recipe dictated. I tried using a little less syrup, as another user suggested, but I ended up needing the full amount to cut the tartness of the lemon. I also used raw sugar instead of white sugar because I think it looks better! I gave it 4 stars because there is no way this makes 2 servings. This barely filled a martini glass and only has 3 ounces of alcohol (the equivalent of 1 regular martini).

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
This recipe was quite easy, quick, and tasty. The olives paired well with the tomatoes and fish. I'm not a huge fan of fish, and this didn't make me consider eating it more often which is why I can't give it 5 stars....but it was very good.

Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
This turned out to be nothing special and I was very disappointed. The starter did great and smelled like a good sourdough starter so I was very excited about it, but the final product didn't even have a hint of sourdough flavor. It was a dense white bread that was a total flop. We ended up throwing it away. :(

Texas Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
This was surprisingly good. I don't like coleslaw and have, therefore, never made it. But, I love cabbage and can't turn down anything with cumin in it. It was super easy to make and was excellent. I've discovered that it's important to slice the cabbage super thin. So, next time, I'll use my mandolin slicer to get that shredded cabbage feel. It was super flavorful and a bit tangy/spicy. I loved it!
