Absolutely perfect as written. We didn't change a thing. There was no need.

The Ultimate Burger Topping
This was okay. I think that next time I will try adding a little diced sun-dried tomatoes though. Also, if you have left-overs make sure that you take it out of the fridge well in advance of serving... I didn't do this and figured that I'd microwave it for 20 seconds in order to "soften it up" enough to spread. Essentially, that ruined it. If I do this again, I'll make sure that I don't have left-overs. :)

Smooth Sweet Tea
Surprisingly good! I was somewhat skeptical of putting baking soda in ice tea but figured that I'd give it a try. I'm very pleased that I did! I followed the recipe exactly but for a couple of procedural steps. I changed the steps a bit because I didn't have a glass pitcher and didn't feel comfortable pouring boiling water into my cheap plastic pitcher. This way made it possible to have the same great results without my worrying over whether or not my pitcher would hold up to the boiling water. Here's what I did: First, I started with a 4 cup glass measuring cup and heated the 2 cups of water to boiling in the microwave. While that was going on, I filled a plastic pitcher with 6 cups of cool water and got the 6 tea bags ready along with the baking soda. By this time the water in the microwave was boiling and I took it out and added the pinch of baking soda directly to the measuring cup of boiling water. I then placed the 6 tea bags into the measuring cup and placed a small plate over the top of the measuring cup. I waited the 15 minutes, took out the 6 tea bags and added the 3/4 cup of sugar and stirred it inside the measuring cup for about 2 minutes to ensure that all the sugar had dissolved. I then poured the tea/sugar mixture into the plastic pitcher containing the 6 cups of cool water and stirred again for a minute or two. Then into the fridge it went until the next day. It was excellent! and had absolutely no acidity or bitterness whatsoever!
