Mexican Rice II
I love this Mexican rice recipe. And with just a few minor additions I would give it five stars. The first time I made it I liked it quite a bit but I felt it needed more texture. So I increased the onion to slightly more than 1/3 of a cup, and I add one rib of small-diced celery at the same time as the onion. (I also use just less than 1/4 t. of cumin, but that's because of personal taste). And with five minutes to go, I add tomatos (2 Roma tomatoes, cored and diced). Adding the celery and the tomato gives it more visual appeal and also a little more texture, but doesn't really change the taste. I think this is such a great base recipe that can be altered to accommodate anyone's personal tastes. I love that the end product looks restaurant-quality, but it doesn't much effort to achieve it!

Amazing Muffin Cups
Not sure what I did wrong, but mine did not come out of the muffin pans. Ended up having to use a spoon to scoop them out. The flavor is good, but I agree with other commenters that it calls for too much cheese and definitely too much sausage. I think my trouble might have been with the hash browns. They didn't go all the way up the sides and they never really got golden brown, even though I cooked them longer than the recipe calls for. It may have been the positioning of my oven rack, which I ended up adjusting. I can see how this recipe could easily be adapted to different flavors and I really want to use it again but I'd have to figure out how to make the hashbrown component work, first.

Awesome Egg Rolls
This was my first time making egg rolls and they turned out wonderfully. I didn't use sprouts, because I'm not a sprout kind of girl, and I subbed in shredded chicken. Took some of the other reviewers' advice and used 3T of soy sauce, but next time I might use 4T. I got 18 in my batch. Fried up 6 and froze the others unfried in two batches to use later. My boyfriend loved them. Said they were better than any frozen egg rolls we'd tried. I thought they were, too. Wanted to take a picture but we ate them too fast! Thanks, Rouver!
