Larb - Laotian Chicken Mince
I'll have to defer to our Laotian friends as to this dish's authenticity, but holy mackerel, it was good! I upped the chili peppers a bit since I'm an insatiable chili fiend, but it had that perfect blend of hot/sweet/sour/salty/aromatic that I've come to associate with Southeast Asian food. And even with all the flavors, the fresh herbal quality really shone. I ate it mixed with leaf lettuce over rice with cucumber spears on the side and I can honestly say that I could eat this every day and never tire of it. (Galangal isn't available in my area, so I substituted half the amount of ginger and a quarter the amount of fennel seed since to me, galangal has vague licorice notes.)

Clark's Quiche
Oh, this recipe is evil because of all the fat and sodium... but it has all the good things! How can you go wrong with bacon, spinach, mushrooms, ham, and cheese? I'd double the mushrooms and maybe halve the spinach to compensate because I'm that much of a mushroom junkie, but that's only because I have an unholy affection for mushrooms, not because the balance is off. The only thing that might *possibly* improve this recipe would be the addition of 1/4 tsp of anchovy paste to bring out the flavor of the mushrooms, but maybe that's just me and my mushroom addiction.

Watermelon-Cucumber Salad with Sushi Vinegar and Lime
Without the feta cheese, this salad would have easily been 5 stars. The blend of sweet, cool, sharp, and tangy was perfect... except for the feta, which clashed with the other ingredients. I like feta with watermelon or with cucumber, but not with lime, apparently. Next time, I will leave the feta out and spike the dressing with a pinch of cayenne and a few cilantro leaves.
