Re:Sugar Cookies

Excellent recipe! I found the dough to be a bit tough to roll out, but after a few handlings/rollings it softened up a bit. I made thicker cookies than what the directions called for - it was easier for my 3 year old to cut them out without the dough tearing. The results were nice and a bit chewy (our first round of thinner ones were crispier and also excellent) and again easier for the 3 year old to decorate.

Re:Mixed Berry Tarts with Lemony Filling

Great recipe - the lemon filling is especially good and I didn't find the shortbread base to be too difficult. I didn't have pie weights and was too lazy to use beans :) Next time through I'll make sure I follow the instructions - my shortbread base did rise too much in the center without something to weigh it down. My only complaint - I haven't ever tried to whip heavy cream and I had to do some internet research when mine wouldn't thicken. I wish the recipe had a bit more instruction. I added a big pinch of sugar and it thickened right up into soft peaks. Yummy - will definitely make this again!

Re:Vietnamese-Style Beef with Garlic, Black Pepper, and Lime

Solid recipe, I was a little bit gun-shy with the amount of pepper (it seemed like way too much but I'm sure it's not!!), so I only used 1 tsp - but it wasn't overwhelming and added a nice punch to the recipe. Next time around I'll go with the full amount. Also for our next attempt, I will under-cook the meat in the first step - it wound up more well done than my husband or I prefer (however it wasn't an overly thick tri-tip to begin with). We added mushrooms - really good addition - and served it over brown rice. This recipe takes no time at all to put together and will be perfect for those nights when we're short on time.

Re:Filet Steaks with an Irish Whisky & Cream Pan Sauce

One of my favorites!! I was getting some inconsistent results with the pan sauce..so I just do it separately in a different (and smaller) sauce pan and have not gotten any complaints

Re:Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

Husband and I loved it!! Really good with mashed potatoes. My only complaint is the recipe in the actual magazine is a bit vague on the ingredient amounts - which makes it fun to play with - but may yield inconsistent results.
