Peppermint Brittle
I tried melting the chocolate both ways - in microwave and on stove top in double broiler ... and unlike some other reviewers I most definitely found it EASIER and less messy to microwave the chocolate instead of doing it on stove top (get a dry glass bowl; break the chocolate into small chunks; one minute at 50 percent power; stir; then bursts of 10 seconds each at 50 percent power; stirring in between; until melted and smooth). Instead of lining my pan with foil I lined it with parchment ("greaseproof kitchen paper") and it came out of the pan perfectly after refrigerating for one hour. I then broke it apart by hand. To keep things simple I did not bother with double layer of milk chocolate and white, and did not swirl melted milk chocolate into the bark, and did not sift the crushed peppermint as some reviewers suggested. It looked and tasted AMAZING as is (and I don't usually prefer white chocolate). My family just loved it. However next time, just for the fun of it, I may try the double layer milk and white as suggested by some reviewers, or swirling.

Banana Banana Bread
I read all the reviews for this recipe and got overwhelmed by all the suggestions. So I said to myself "Forget that!!! I am going to make it EXACTLY as written, word for word!" I did just that, didnt add a single thing, didn't change any of the ratios of ingredients one little bit, and I am SO happy with the results. This banana loaf was PERFECT...not too dense, but not too bready, perfectly moist, perfect mix of textures, tasted perfect. Make it as it and dont sweat about all the suggested changes!

General Tsao's Chicken II
Made it exactly as directed, didnt change anything. I was so looking forward to this but was disappointed. It was good, but tasted EXACTLY like any Teriyaki chicken recipe I've ever made, not General Tsao chicken that you get at a chinese restaurant. I will be looking for a more authentic sauce recipe.
