Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi
Tried this tonight but instead of cooking it in veg oil I used olive oil and instead of cooking it over med-high heat I turned the heat to medium as on med-high it was burning and cooking too fast. Great taste though.

Filipino Lumpia
Last night we followed this recipe to the T, what we ended up with was bland and burnt food that was not cooked in the middle and we had to microwave to get it cooked. Reason why was because 2 tbsp of filling is WAY too much and it also needs some seasonings added. Today with the leftover meat I added freshly ground pepper and Worcestershire sauce to taste and browned the meat and vegetables. Then I only put 1 tbsp filling into the wrapper and used less oil to cook them in, they came out the right size and cooked through and much better tasting.

French Crepes
Compared to other crepe recipes I looked over this one was lowest in carbs, which is important to someone cooking for a diabetic. We made no changes to the recipe and they were tasty without any filling, but we did fill them with a dusting of powdered sugar and fresh berries.
