Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
DISASTER! How are you supposed to cook an entire package of rice noodles "a little bit at a time" with 2 TBS of oil?? I kept adding oil but the noodles never "puffed up" and I had noodle twigs all over the kitchen, even in my hair. My dear husband came in and opened the doors and windows to let out all the smoke, but they were still the needles that you get when you don't cook them "long enough." Is 5 minutes long enough? 20 minutes? "A bit at a time" and I would have been cooking those stupid rice noodles for 2 hours. We aren't picky eaters; my husband is game for anything, but we picked out the chicken chunks and the rest went in the compost. Later a friend pointed me to the eHow article on How to Fry Rice Noodles, which would have been very helpful. For instance, put an INCH of oil in the pan, not two tablespoons! http://www.ehow.com/how_2150226_fry-rice-noodles.html

Absolute Best Liver and Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
I used a regular yellow onion, which turned out fine. To saute the onion, I used 2 tablespoons of Earth Balance substitute butter spread, but for the second 2 tablespoons of butter to cook the liver in, I substituted bacon grease. We liked liver already, but now my husband declares that he wants "liver every night!" It was really delicious.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
This was really easy and very good. I doubled both the cabbage and the tomatoes and it worked out fine, plus I added a tablespoon of bacon grease with the bouillon ... yeah! wow! My husband doesn't eat dairy but I love it, so I stirred two large spoonfuls of yogurt into my own bowl of soup and it was delicious. Thanks for posting this tasty and versatile recipe!
