Chicken Lo Mein with Broccoli
all that cornstarch made the chicken gummy, i had to add water while cooking chicken. I used a considerable amount of minced garlic, added ponzu (or soy), oyster sauce, more ginger and white sugar at the end with the noodles. I also let the meal sit a while with the lid on so the noodles would 'soak up' the flavor. It was very good this way.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
This soup is just amazing. I've been making it for over a year now and made a few changes to suit our taste. I saute a small diced onion in the pot with some butter, then add chicken and minced garlic and cook it seasoned with a little pepper and parsley. Directly after that, without draining, I add 6 cups of water and 2 and 1/2 tsp of better than boullion (or boullion cubes, both work wonderfully in case anyone was wondering). I bring it all to a boil and then add rice, turn off and cover as directed. I make the cream-roux as directed except I use half and half (still comes out very rich and creamy). Add it back to the pot, turn the pot back on and stir, add cayenne pepper (key in my opinion) a dash at a time to taste. Then I add about a cup of frozen corn, cook at all on medium heat for about 10 mins (MUST cook at least ten mins or it will taste flour-y) and Oh MY! It is awesome.

Best Spanish Rice
Followed recipe with more onion and some red bell pepper and Garlic. Added a little bit more liquid. Brought to full rolling boil before turning down to simmer. Tasted it. It was Ok, but not very authentic tasting. Added Chili powder and cumin, put it over the top. Was great, but I feel cumin and chili powder are vital to making this dish work. Used medium picante, which was to spicy for my son. If your not a fan of spicy, would rec. mild salsa/picante. I think mild salsa would have been closer to authentic, but I liked the spice. This is my first time making spanish rice. I feel with the additions that I made it is a thousand times better than those bags you buy at the store! Great, easy base recipe!
