Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2002
SODIUM INTAKE: I don't know why the ESHA database gave this so much sodium. None of the ingredients (with the possible exception of sour cream) contain noticable sodium in and of themselves. I think that most canned black beans have sodium added, and that since the recipe calls for canned black beans, that the database gave the average amount of sodium on that basis. However, there is no reason why one can't use dried beans, or simply cans with no added sodium.

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2001
When I go to the mall, this is the number one item I see kids ordering from the Chinese place. I too, order it whenever possible. This recipe is the only one I've ever found that doesn't take unavailable ingredients or pans, and that tastes as good as, if not better than, what we get at a restaurant. The trick is to wait for the cornstarch to gel up, and not add any in panic! :)
