Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
I hate to knock such an easy recipe that had so much potential, but the amount of mint (I used "mint extract" not "peppermint extract") was overwhelming. The hubby said it tasted like toothpaste at first bite (not good, and we are mint chip aficionados, btw). Also, it was too much cream, or not enough of something else. I've made custard style ice creams with 1:1 cream and milk that didn't taste like cream (or eggs) and this was almost like eating mint flavored butter (no joke). It was not good. I'm sorry to say. Three stars is generous for ice cream I had to throw straight in the trash. Oh well, might try again with less cream and less mint, but then of course, it's not this recipe anymore.

Chocolate Scotcheroos
I grew up eating Scotcheroos from a recipe exactly like this one...came to find it and so glad I did. They are sooo good!!! Like, stupidly, good! Everyone always loves them. My mom insists you should double the chocolate and butterscotch topping, but I think it's perfect as is. Yay Scotcheroos!

Trout Amandine
This (accurately named) dish was fabulous! My husband loved it too! I did however substitute a good amount of olive oil for the butter to make it more heart healthy and it turned out great - just enough butter left in for a rich, buttery taste.
