Bearnaise Sauce II
I love Bearnaise sauce, but rarely ever made it because of the hassle (double boilers, time constraints, sauce breaking, etc.) Just a couple of weeks ago I discovered this recipe, and I've already made it twice. Some others have mentioned the acidity, but it doesn't seem excessive to me. In the future, I may experiment with tarragon vinegar rather than white wine vinegar, and I might use shallots rather than onion, but it's really wonderful "as is". I might also mention that I whisk after 7 seconds each time, because around the the edges of the bowl start thickening quickly, and I don't want the eggs to cook and curdle. It only takes about 45 seconds of actual cooking time in my microwave for this to heat and thicken. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!

Wet Burrito
My family loves Mexican food, but I had never heard of wet burritos before. Ran across this recipe and decided to try it. I followed the ingredients list and instructions exactly, did not change one thing. They are quite huge, so it was more than 4 servings for us. They were a hit, and I will be adding this recipe to my cookbook. Thank you!

Smooth Sweet Tea
I never was much of a tea drinker and didn't know how to make good tea. I was having to make tea for the family gathering for Christmas Eve and found this recipe. I followed the ingredients list exactly, but I changed the method a bit. I wasn't sure my glass pitcher could stand boiling water poured into it, so I boiled the water in a pan, turned it off, put in the pinch of baking soda and steeped the tea bags directly in the pan with the 2 cups of water. While it was steeping, I poured the cool 6 cups of water in the pitcher. When steeping time was up, I removed the tea bags and dissolved the sugar in the pan before pouring into the pitcher with the cool water. My grandson likes the full amount of sugar. I can do with a couple of tablespoons less. It's great tea and very smooth, not bitter. Thank you! Now I'm a tea drinker!
