Tiramisu II
I was scared to make this, but had to as my daughter told me at the 11th hour she needed to bring this dish to school for class. ARGH! It turned out beautifully and was sorry she came home with the pan empty. She said many really liked it. So I will make this again for the family to enjoy.

Chicken Broccoli Ca - Unieng's Style
I have cooked this several times already now. I cook the chicken first, but when it is halfway cooked, I add gussies (baby corn). Let it cook for a while and before it is fully cooked, I add the sauce and I double it so we have more to go over rice, letting it cook for a few minutes. And since it takes a while to get thick, I add the water and cornstarch first before throwing in the vegetables. Then I let the vegetables steam on top for a few minutes and then mix everything, letting it cook for a few minutes more. Two things: I used baby broccoli (broccolini) as it is easier to cook with the bok choy and this dish is best cooked with a lid so that the sauce doesn't evaporate and the vegetables can steam properly. It's a GREAT dish, my kids love this and they don't usually like chinese food.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
It was wonderful and so easy to make. I made my own salsa as hubby is allergic to garlic (and garlic is listed in EVERY salsa out there). I use a whole bunch of cilantro and lime in my salsa, so didn't need to add any more in the crockpot. I also didn't use the taco seasoning- just chicken and salsa. It was delicious, will make this again. Perfect for when company comes over too, everyone can make their own taco or tostada.
