Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
This was pretty good. I read some reviewers say that the sauce was too loose (didn't get thick). Here's what I did. Well, I doubled the sauce, but here is what I did to make it thick. I combined 3 tbsps of cornstarch with 3 tbsps flour. I thencubed and season the chicken with salt and pepper. Next, I coated the chicken in the cornstarch and flour mixture. I fried up the chicken, drained the excess oil in the pan, poured the sauce over the chicken and then let it simmer for the 30-minutes. The cornstarch and flour coating from the chicken will help the sauce thicken as it simmers (saving you the 2 tbsp of water and 2 tsp of cornstarch step). I love Chinese five-spice seasoning and always keep a bottle in the fridge, but I did not use it though. I thought ground ginger would go best with the sauce, so that's what I used. It was very good.

Glazed Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
Some ppl have said that the chicken did not get crispy. I KNEW the chicken wouldn't get crispy if I stuck to cooking them the way the recipe says. What I did was bake the chicken FIRST on a lightly sprayed, foil-lined baking sheet for about 25-30 minutes at 450 degrees. Then I poured the sauce over the wings and baked for an additional 10 minutes. I added a dash of mustard, some salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder and Cayenne powder to the sauce to give the sauce/chicken more flavor. They were good this way.

Chewy Cinnamon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Just finished baking one batch of these cookies and I have another batch baking in the oven. I'm making these cookies while my family is sleeping. I've already eaten two cookies. I hope I don't eat them all before my family wakes up. They're very good. I'm going to top a few more of these cookies with the Roady Road ice cream I have in the fridge :)

Coconut Custard Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
I read the reviews before making this pie and was a little hesitant about making it. Everyone kept saying the pie was too sweet or too greasy. So, I altered the ingredients. I reduced the butter to 2 tbsps and reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup. I creamed the butter with the sugar before adding the eggs one at a time. I also added ground cinnamon and fresh nutmeg. It came out great! It was VERY good! This pie will be apart of my Thanksgiving dinner this year. Thanks!
