Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms
Excellent! My additions:1 chopped onion, sauteed with the garlic, 1 can chopped tomatoes (instead of tomato sauce), 1t. beef broth paste, sherry for the wine. Bay leaf too. I salt and pepper floured the meat before browning and realized that the onion and garlic don't need nearly as much browning time as the meat. Tend to burn! After the 40 minutes, or so, simmering time, everything came together in a delicious blend of flavors and texture. Great with buttered noodles!

Bikini Martini
WOW! How about 6 stars. This drink is so much fun it may, singlehandedly, bring back prohibition. As other reviewers have said, have a care, it goes down easily, but you'll soon have difficulty holding on to your inhibitions!!

Spinach Tortellini Soup
Easy and excellent. Picking up on others' suggestions, I sauteed onion and garlic, added dried basil, then the broth (1 qt.), some shredded carrot and zucchini, along with a lot of fresh spinach, 1/4 tsp. lemon pepper. Then the tortellini, to simmer just 'til al dente. Grated parmesan on each serving. Is this a great country, or what!!
