Mustard Greens 'n Beans
Ok, I would have given this a 4 1/2 but ...obviously I couldn't. This was my absolute FIRST time eating much less MAKING mustard green. Never had em, never ate em. I had TONS growing in the garden(tried something new) I really liked this. Didn't have nutmeg so I was nervous about the bitterness, but it wasn't at all. Did it exactly as directed except 2 things- used apple cider vinegar and I used double the amount of garlic SCAPES rather than cloves...its what I had. DELISH. Other reviewers say that its better the next day- can't wait to try!

Mini Meatloaves
Pretty good. Family loved it. I didnt have oats and so I used bread crumbs. Because of this, I did not use the milk. Though, I will next time use 1/2 the amount listed in the recipe. Big hit with the fam and will use this one again.
