Earl Grey Martini

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
Wow! This is fantastic. I used Earl Grey tea bags and put the gin (2 cups) and the tea bags (5 of them) into a Mason jar. I left it overnight in the refrigerator. I took the T-bags out the next day. This infused gin is now in the 'fridge ready for an evening "Greytini". I haven't changed anything else, yet, but I suspect that this might be good with Bacardi, vodka or even white tequila as the alcohol base.

Gin and Tonic

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
The way your taste buds detect the quinine in tonic is genetic. To me it is bitter and most unpleasant. To many others it is pleasant or is not tasted at all. I actually do quinine taste test as a biology lab when teaching genetics. In my experience more people like it than dislike it. So if you like it I imagine that it is really pleasant in a G&T, but for me - I prefer my gin in a martini!

Fresh Asparagus and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
This is a really good recipe, especially with fresh asparagus. I didn't have a red bell pepper, so I left that out. I added a cup of shredded 4 cheese mix to the "wet ingredients" and I sprinkled another cup of it on the top before I put it in the oven. And I didn't fiddle with layers. I put the cooked pasta (bow ties) on the bottom of the greased casserole and combined all the other ingredients and poured them over the noodles. After 30 min @350F it was golden and YUMMY!!

Savory Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
This seemed so simple that I was a little sceptical that it would stay moist. But it did - it was absolutely perfect. The only change I made was to use fresh herbs because I have them in my garden. (They were dried after a few minutes in the oven.) I would recommend this to anyone but especially to beginning cooks - you'll get lots of compliments for this. I served it with a pale brown gravy, applesauce and mashed potato. Yummy!

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
This is the "real deal", almost identical to the recipe given to me years ago by an Irish lady. (And the Irish really know their 'taters!). I partially peel the potatoes, but leave some skin on - we all need our fiber. And I slice the potatoes very thin using a mandolin - but patience with a sharp knife worked well before I bought this gadget. My family loves this and it is easy to modify for my gluten sensitive grand-daughter - I just make it with her special flour. Because my family likes it with cheese, I generally add shredded cheese with each layer, and you can spice it up or down according to the tastes of the people you are feeding. Garlic powder and perhaps a little chili powder for adults, plain for kids. Add this to your recipe box for a treat for 2 people or 100 - you'll get great reviews every time.

Strawberry Mojito

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
Really yummy. Too much sugar in the original recipe. Made it with blueberries instead of strawberries. I think that you could experiment with many different summer berries. My friends loved the blueberry variant, but what can I say, they love anything sweet and alcoholic!!!
