Brazilian Lemonade
Haven't made this yet, but saw that people were complaining about bitterness after it set awhile. Perhaps that is due to the "pith," the white part between the outer skin and the fruit. (Since the whole peel was included in the blending.) How about zesting the lemons or limes and then just blending the zest with the rest of the ingredients. Then strain. Perhaps that will take care of the bitterness.

Asian Lettuce Wraps
Doubled this recipe for a gathering picnic in a park. Took in a warming container with the butter lettuce leaves and toppings on the side. Everyone loved it. I added the shredded carrots in at the end of cooking. I used lean ground turkey. After browning the turkey, I pulsed it in a food processor to get it a little finer. Could be made ahead or in stages, like chopping or browning the day before for time and ease of preparation. Thanks for this recipe.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak
This is a great dish, I remember from childhood. I would skip the soy sauce and salt though. The bouillon was plenty salty tasting. Used fresh minced garlic in place of garlic powder. Used red and yellow peppers, cause that's what I had. I added brown mushrooms. I subbed red wine for the 1/4 cup of water. The mushrooms and the wine added a real rich flavor. The meat was so tender. I cooked it for 8 hours on low, but 7 hours on low would have been plenty fine. Served over a garlic linguine pasta with a side of steamed asparagus. Wonderful.
