Thin Mint Cookies
Inedibly bad. First off, they need to be thinner (I made them varying thickness, but I'd say go with about 1/8 inch). Secondly, they need to be crisper. They were doughy like a brownie. So cook them longer (or don't use this recipe). And thirdly, the mint taste wasn't right. I used mint extract, btw, not peppermint, as some reviewers suggested. The chocolate coating didn't save them at all. I tried some totally covered in chocolate and some with chocolate drizzle. The problem was the cookie to start with.

Southern Red Velvet Cake
I made the recipe exactly according to the recipe, except maybe not enough red food coloring, since I didn't measure that. This was my first time making red velvet cake. The cake tasted fine - nothing great. It was kind of hard around the edges. Note the batter is quite thick, which took me a little by surprise, but is as expected according to my google search. The frosting too was fine - nothing great. It had kind of a gritty texture and wasn't as thick as I would have liked.

Simple Arrabbiata Sauce
I made this as written, and it was not to my liking. It was very acidic and bland. First thing, it needed sugar - something to tone down the acidic taste. I added about 1.5 tsp, and that was not enough. And it had no spiciness to it at all. I'm very confused by that given many of the reviews stated it was too spicy, and I'm kind of a spice weenie. I don't know if my red pepper flakes were too old or a bad brand or something. I don't know what else it would need to redeem it, but I would start with an entirely different recipe.
