Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
Perhaps I misunderstood some portion of this recipe? I opted for the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic version with a saute time of approximately 8 minutes. My asparagus was fairly thin so it shouldn't have taken more cooking time than that. In the end, however, I found it to be stringy, chewy and without the expected flavor! I opted to bake the asparagus for another 10+ minutes at 400 degrees and that helped somewhat. But, still stringy with very little flavor! In the future, I will return to boiling or baking my asparagus and using a combo of melted butter and balsamic vinegar as a drizzle or a dip for the spears.

Twice Baked Potatoes II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Not as suggested. More work than described. Potatoes need to cook much longer. My first attempt with this for Christmas dinner did not go as planned. Blender broke while processing because potatoes were not done as suggested in directions.
