This Mint Chocolate Torte recipe is a combination of two different ones...the chocolate cake from my childhood and the filling from a pie I saw in a cookbook. The flavor is reminiscent of an after-dinner chocolate mint.

Mint Brownie CupcakesMint Brownie Cupcakes
Are they a brownie or are they a cupcake? There's no wrong answer to this question, I tell my first-grade students. I found the Mint Brownie Cupcakes recipe when I began teaching nearly 20 years ago.

What's better than a bowl of fresh-picked berries? A bowl of berries enhanced with mint, lemon juice and a dollop of whipped topping in our Mint Berry Blast.

Mint-Pesto Lamb ChopsMint-Pesto Lamb Chops
I adore the taste and richness of lamb. But it takes bold flavors to complement the lamb, and this Mint-Pesto Lamb Chops recipe definitely does that. The simple mint-cilantro pesto marries well with the lamb flavor, while the pomegranate-balsamic reduction adds the perfect balance to finish off the dish. This easy-to-prepare entree is delicious and gourmet, and is sure to impress.
