Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad
This is by far my favorite ramen coleslaw recipe. The soy and sesame oil really add something... That said I have NEVER added 1/2c sesame seeds. I have always been out when making this recipe, but I still couldn't imagine using more than 1T of sesame seeds. The napa cabbage is great in this too.

Simple Chicken Brine
If using table salt or canning salt use half of what is called for if kosher is listed in recipe. I have unintentionally brined a whole chicken for over 24 hrs (when dinner plans changed) and it was not over salted or mushy. I also do not rinse my birds after brining and have not noticed any effects. To make sure the salt and sugar disolve I fill a half gallon container about half full with the warmest water I can get out of the tap. Add salt and sugar, stir until disolved. Add ice to container, stir to cool water down. Strain ice if desired and fill container to bring to 1gal then add soy and other ingredients.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.
The kids really enjoyed it, I thought it was good... I made them first exactly as directed and then with chocolate cake mix. We all preferred the chocolate, but I also added a small package of chocolate pudding to the cake mix which made the chocolate cupcakes much more moist. I used a 1 tbspn scoop (ice cream style) to scoop the cookie dough. The first time I pushed them down into the cake batter all the way (after freezing) and the "cookie" ended up on the bottom. The second time I put them on top and just slightly pushed in and they stayed in the center.
