Pad Thai
This is a great recipe. Thank you for posting it, I have been seeking a simple and delicious pad thai recipe and this fit the bill! The only thing I would say is the method for preparing the rice noodles should be changed. After much research I found that the preferred method is to pour boiling water over the noodles and soak for about 5 minutes until soft, then rise with cold water, and rinse again with cold water. I did mine this way and the texture of the noodles was perfect, and this was the first time I made pad thai. The rest is like any recipe, this is a great start but tailor to your taste. I stir fried using a touch of veg oil, and some sesame oil, adding a couple of cloves of minced garlic as well. I have a non stick electric wok so little oil is necessary, making the dish healthier. I mixed rice vinegar, fish sauce, oyster sauce and sirachi with chicken broth in a bowl. This allowed me test the flavor, and pour it over the noodles while stir frying. Thanks again. I love pad thai and now I can make it at home!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake II
I consider myself an excellent cook, but not a baker. This recipe is great and makes a very tasty cake. I did not dry the fresh pineapple, but other than that, pretty much followed the recipe - it takes a lot of beating, but it's worth it...

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
I've made traditional alfredo sauces in the past, but never will again! This is absolutely excellent, creamy and tasty. I did use fresh garlic, that's just a preference. I warmed some up slowly in a saucepan the next day, and it was still great. I'll never use another alfredo! Thanks so much for sharing such an easy and delicious recipe.
