Mint Tea Punch
Hey Y'All, thanks for all the lovely reviews and suggestions to make it different based on taste - that's what I love about this site! As many of you noted, it tastes much better if you allow the flavors to meld together for a few hours in the refrigerator. Finally, I wanted to share with you another thing to do with this tea... when I want to make it an adult drink, I replace one of the cups of cold water with rum and ouila, you have "Mojiteas." Hope you enjoy!!! - McBartko

Mushroom Lentil Barley Stew
Meh. Not what I was expecting. Found it rather lacking in flavor, to be honest. Was definitely edible and sriracha added to it made it much better, but I wouldn't make it again.

Carol's Chicken Salad
I found this to be a very yummy chicken salad, although I made some changes to make it healthier. First, I cooked the chicken by placing it in a pan of chicken broth, bringing it to a boil, then removing it from the heat and letting it stand for 15 minutes to cook through... tender, flavorful chicken resulted. For the dressing, instead of 1/2 cup of mayo, I used 1/4 c reduced-fat Helmann's mayonnaise and 1/4 c reduced-fat sour cream. I omitted the cheese altogether, as I didn't really feel that was necessary. The result is a 3/4-cup serving with 124 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and less than a gram of fiber (3 Weight Watchers points for anyone interested) which is a much lighter, much healthier version but with all the creamy yumminess. Next time, I will reduce the poultry seasoning from 3/4 tsp to 1/2 tsp, as I found it to be slightly overpowering. All in all, the recipe gave me a great base from which to create a delicious, healthy meal. I'm sure it would taste fabulous the way it was written, but for those of you who are like me, you can't afford 19.5 grams of fat in one serving!
