Sweet and Spicy Pork and Napa Cabbage Stir-Fry with Spicy Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This was SO tasty! I often try to make Asian style recipes at home and find they fail to deliver on flavor without calling for all kinds of ingredients I rarely have on hand. This one was loaded with flavor. The substitutions I made were to use chicken instead of pork, and soba noodles instead of chinese noodles (these taste very similar to whole wheat spaghetti, which several other reviewers substituted). I also made my own Thai sweet chili sauce from a recipe online since I didn't have any. My cooking technique varied just slightly, since I was starting with uncooked skinless bone-in chicken pieces. I added these to the pan with the oil, red pepper, and onions until they browned nicely on each side. Then, I stuck them in the oven at 375 until they were 160 degrees on a thermometer. I shredded the chicken and mixed it, along with the noodles, back into the stir fry and served. Yum! Thanks so much for this recipe!

Real Chiles Rellenos

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I was so excited to make these after reading all the reviews. I kept trying to tell myself that all the mess and effort would pay off, but in the end, I was disappointed. The sauce was delicious on its own, and I plan to keep that part of the recipe for other things, but the finished relleno was missing something, and didn't really have the flavor of a restaurant chile relleno. A lot of effort that I don't plan to expend again...next time, will just go out for these.

Fluffy White Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I just made this for the first time, as a test batch for my daughter's upcoming birthday party...I am testing out the cupcakes, frosting, and how well they hold up after sitting for a bit. My daughter's party is at a museum, so I have to be able to make these ahead and transfer them without the frosting deflating. I colored the frosting to a light lavender color using blueberries in the sugar mixture, then removing them before adding to egg white mixture...very pretty. After frosting the cupcakes I placed them in the fridge to cool, and will leave a few in there overnight to see what they do. As far as the taste, it's very yummy...I agree with another reviewer that it's kind of reminiscent of marshmallow. I'll re-post regarding how well it holds its form, etc., but so far I'm really happy with it, and it was really quite simple to make :) Thanks for the recipe!
