Hong Kong Style Egg Tarts
I am from Hong Kong, and these egg tarts do remind me of those in Hong Kong! The filing was good but I didn't like the crust. I recommend making the crust by using the recipe of kukadog's lemon pie bars. I used skim milk instead since I didn't have evaporated milk. I also reduced the amount of sugar and the oven's temperature to 350. Will definitely make it again!

Korean Spicy Marinated Pork (Dae Ji Bool Gogi)
I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I reduced the hot pepper paste to half of a 1/4 cup and red pepper to 1 tablespoon, and I added 1/4 cup of Spicy Korean Cake sauce. I didn't have green onion, and I used ginger powder instead of fresh ginger. I also used pork chop meat instead of pork loin. I didn't have rice wine vinegar so I used rice vinegar instead. I didn't think the vinegar taste was strong but the ginger; it is possibly because I never really like the ginger taste. I suspect that many reviewers used apple cinder vinegar instead or rice vinegar since ACV has a stronger vinegar taste than rice vinegar. Hot pepper paste is really HOT, and whether the recipe calls for too many hot pepper paste is really a matter of personal taste. To sum up, the favor is good, and I will definitely make it again.

DO NOT let the negative review stop you from making this wonderful dessert. I am not a good baker, and so I was worried especially during the baking process. The baking instruction/time as described in the recipe is perfect. I have no idea why the negative reviewers' oven will catch on fire etc. Maybe they didn't reduce the temperature to 325 after 15 minutes. The only thing I changed was the sugar amount but this is only as a matter of personal taste.
