Swing and a miss

The Twins didn't make it to the playoffs this year, and a few recipes did not make the cut to be copied down into my recipe book.  I thought I would share a few reviews to save others some time, or know to tweak.

Chai Latte Bar Cookies: This one I want to try again as I think this might have been user error.  I am not a fan of brownies or bars that are not set in the middle, and these were anything but set.  I think I mixed the cream cheese in too much and that played with the ratio of bar to cream cheese layer.  Flavor was good for the few I could salvage from the edge.

Thai Turkey Burgers: These were good, just not great.  I have a great asian chicken burger/slider that I prefer over these, so they won't make the cut.

Almond-Poppyseed Cakes from Desserts in Jars: Again might have been user error, but I thought the cakes were a bit dry.  I would add just a bit more fat to the batter.

Chilled Oatmeal in a Jar: The consistency wasn't for me.  I think I prefer crockpot oatmeal instead.  It was so quick and easy, I just didn't like the gluteny texture the next day.  Thanks Megan for suggesting it, but just wasn't my preferred oatmeal.

Fresh three-bean salad: This one I would make again.  Very light, low fat, and fresh summery flavor.
