Chocolate Earl Grey Cookies
If you like extremely cakey cookies, these are for you. I up-ed the tea bag count to nine (3 Earl Greys, 3 Lady Greys, 1 Indian Spice Chai, and 2 decaff supermarket brand Earl Greys) and it wasn't too strong. Like one of the reviewers said, I sprinkled decorative sugar on top for presentation's sake - that was good advice since these cookies aren't really pretty given their color and shapelessness. The flavor is unique, and makes for a good candidate to add variety to a cookie box gift, but I don't think I'd recommend them for shipping because they are so soft.

Smooth Sweet Tea
This recipe was quick and very easy to make. For my taste, I would increase the number of tea bags since I thought that the flavor of the tea didn't stand out enough against the sugar (I used Lipton tea bags so maybe they were weak?), but it's true that the bitterness isn't there, and if that's due to the baking soda, then hats off to whoever discovered the trick!

Breakfast Quiches to Go
Wow, these came out even better than I had imagined, how scrumptious! I used only 1/2 package of cream cheese (1/3 reduced fat and it was still good), and half a bag of frozen collard greens because that's all I had/my bf doesn't like spinach. As someone recommended, I sauteed the onions first, then also added the greens to that to cook for a bit, then let the mixture cool before adding to the egg mixture (of which I used 5.) I also tried both the garlic and butter flake flavors for the dough, and actually personally preferred the butter flake one - it really was buttery, while not overpowering the egg filling like the garlic does a bit. These are impressive-looking too and very presentable, and would make a perfect addition to a potluck brunch.
