Chocolate Almond Pudding
Great recipe. I made it exactly as written and it couldn't have been easier or better tasting. Thickened up beautifully. I have never heard [in over 4 decades of cooking] that cornstarch can be over worked, or stirred too much [as one reviewer stated] If you follow the recipe exactly as written it will thicken beautiful, even while whisking until the end. On our second and third batches [yes, it is that good] we substituted peppermint for almond extract and tossed in some semi sweet chips after adding the extracts. We also substituted orange extract [again for the almond] and added white chocolate chips with about 1/4 orange zest. The possibilities are endless. NOTE: I used about a handful of chips which is almost[?] 1/2 cup. Thank you for this FABULOUS recipe. Family favorite. Review is based on following the directions exactly and no substitutions. It is a true review based on the ingredients and instructions as written. Did I mention easy? giggle PS - We like cold pudding so we covered each individual pudding in a martini glass in plastic wrap to keep the pudding from forming it's own skin. Topped with homemade whipped cream and sprinkles. YAY Happy pudding.

Pork With Fried Rice and Vegetable Casserole
The scale on the amount of meats to veggies is off in my opinion and baking it with fresh rice makes it mushy.

Beef Stroganoff III
I give it 5 stars - made as is. It is an incredibly easy and delicious recipe. The second time I made it I marinaded the beef in the wine before hand [with minced garlic and worsteshire sauce], instead of adding it at the end and I used fresh mushrooms. Either way it is a winner and a new favorite in our home.
