Is it just me? Am I picking too many nits?
I was going over a few recipes that I am going to enter
into the local A and S competition (after suitably testing
them on my husband, of course) and I am a bit stymied.

First, it seems like almost every time, the whole herb
garden goes into the pot. Well, perhaps that isn't so odd
since we do the thyme, rosemary, parsley, marjoram thing.
Second, there is no indication of what to substiture for
laser (which appears to be in everything as well... no
wonder it's not around any more).
Third, I don't see a lot of serving things cold or hot.
Again, am I picking too many nits? (This is especially
for a beet with mustard seed recipe that really appeals to
me). Seems it would be good either way.
Or should I just do the Remy thing, and look at whats
there and toss it into the pot, dancing around as I go,
until it tastes good?
