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.

I can get around the play with proportions until it tastes 

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?

known to over-think things...
