Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I
I read every single review (184 of them) and was so surprised that not one of them mentioned that the rice should be 2-3 days old, not just chilled. In addition, to keep the rice grains separate like restaurant rice, add about 1 tsp. or so of oil to the rice and mix thoroughly with your hands. Follow these two suggestions and there will be no clumpy rice. I used brown rice cooked in chicken broth, which was so good I could have eaten just that alone. Brown rice takes longer to cook than white rice, but is so much healthier (all the natural nutrition is removed when it is made white), and it tastes so much better. This is a great basic recipe with lots of helpful tips from other reviewers. Thanks for the recipe and the reviewer’s contributions.

Honey Oatmeal Bread II
Wonderful flavor! I eat a slice for a snack, and that has never happened with any other bread in my entire life! I added 1 1/2 cups raisins and 1 cup walnuts, and it makes super toast. Due to so many comments about stickiness, I added 1 cup whole wheat flour + 1 Tbsp. gluten because of the whole wheat, and had almost 3/4 cup of flour left over. Now I'm wondering if the left over flour was because (for the first time in my life) I used BREAD flour instead of all purpose. So next time I'll do it exactly as written, measurement wise, with the only change being BREAD flour instead of all purpose and no added whole wheat to see if BREAD flour makes that much difference. There is probably a reason that bread recipes call for bread flour, but I've never used it before. Stay tuned.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cake
I've been making this recipe for years. It's my all time favorite chocolate cake recipe and people beg me to bring it. I prefer the Old Fashioned oats to the Quick Cook; be sure that you don't use instant oatmeal. Add 1 tsp. to vanilla. I use 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp. of cocoa, but I have seen the recipe calling for 2 Tbsp. cocoa which would make it really dark. I put nuts and chips IN the cake and ON TOP both. Bake in 13 x 9 " pan at 350 for about 40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
