meatballs- When i first got married my landlord went away for the week, so i planned to cook a romantic dinner for my new husband, he's not a vegitarian and i am, i never really cooked meat before, and i decided to make meatballs. I thought the best way to do this was to fry them in a pan. We were living in a basement apartment and the entire place filled with smoke. The fire alarm went off as I was setting all the food on the table and we didn't have access to the main alarm, so the fire department came. There were about 5 trucks coming and a plate full of black meatballs on the table. Luckily the firemen had a thought it was funny and so did my vacationing landlord.

Seitan Makhani (Vegan-Style Indian Butter Chicken)
Excellent! Tastes like authentic Indian food!! Will be making it again! Added Spinach and Broccoli, didn't have garam masala so we made this we found online that did the trick, doubled for the ~4 tablespoons needed by this recipe: 1/2 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp paprika 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp crumbled bay leaves 1/8 tsp ground cloves The only complaint is that it didn't get thick like the picture (or at all), but it came out just fine.

Perfect Sesame Chicken
This was great, EXCEPT 1 cup of sugar was WAAAYYY too much!! It was absurdly sweet. Half the sugar would make this perfectly and still probably even be sweet.
