Salmon Cakes II
Made this exactly as written (okay maybe with a few extra dashes of hot pepper sauce) and served with a reviewer's dip of 1 part dijon mustard, 2 parts mayo. Dee-licious. I'm no salmon cake expert as I've only had them once before and that was years ago, but these on their own with no comparisons were yummy and deeply satisfying.

Vegetarian Korma
So close to a 5 star! 4.5 at the least. But 5 stars with slight modifications. Firstly, full-fat coconut milk substituted for cream is a must, especially since it's much more widely available now. If you've ever cooked Indian food, you'd see that right away. Secondly, I make my own curry powder so I didn't need to add more spices, but if you get store bought, you'll probably need more curry, a bit more cinnamon, and more turmeric. That's based on my past experience with store-bought curry powder, but taste and see and add on your own. And definitely saute the curry powder with the onions, careful not to burn. I would also agree with another reviewer, the potatoes should be cooked a little before everything else. 10 minutes might work for itsy, bitsy pieces, but who wants itsy, bitsy pieces of potato? I also added an extra garlic clove and extra ginger, but that's my taste and what I usually do with recipes of this sort. Haha, it looks like a lot of modifications, but really they're not far off from the basic recipe which is an excellent base. A little experimenting and a few twists to suit your own tastes, and it easily becomes full 5 star.

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli
I made it twice, the first time following the recipe exactly, the second time with some slight adjustments that made it a 5. Definitely beware that this is the kind of spicy that will make you sweaty and give you the sniffles. Which I love, but some may want to slowly add and taste. Alterations: I put in a bit of agave syrup to give it a tad more of the sweet, used fresh ginger, put in more variety of vegetables (just anything that I had), doubled the sauce (I may triple next time, though), and sprinkled some fresh chopped cilantro on top at the end (as I frequently do with Asian dishes). Delicious! This is definitely an easy recipe with stuff you usually have on hand if you frequently cook Asian cuisine and very easy to play around with.
