Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
Unbelievably good! I used 3 lbs of ground beef (I have a large family) and doubled the incredible sauce recipe. Perfect ratio. EVERYONE loved it! This will be a monthly menu item in our home for sure! Thanks SO much!

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I just can't thank you enough! As someone who does not eat pork and who has moved way too far from THE ONE Chinese restaurant that offers chicken wonton soup (did I mention that I'm addicted to the stuff?!), I am beyond thrilled that you posted this recipe. Truth be told, I was very hesitant and prepared myself to be disappointed. I replaced the pork with ground chicken and just threw some beautiful, large cooked shrimp into the broth along with some bok choy and it was FABULOUS! Better than the restaurant version. If I could give it 10 stars, I would. No doubt, this recipe will be in my family for years and years. Again, many thanks!

Hearty Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
This was FABULOUS! My entire family went nuts over this meal and I had to promise that it would remain in the rotation. I used store brand chunky salsa, but pureed it (personal preference). I used chicken tenders browned in olive oil, shredded them, threw them back in the pot and tossed the water/bouillon cubes right on top (once the chix was fully cooked, of course) along with the other ingredients. Garlic powder was thrown in along with the wonderful cumin. I admit I cheated and bought the store brand tri-color tortilla strips--so easy. I made my rice separately in the microwave steamer and just poured the soup over it in individual bowls--perfect! Thank you so much for this recipe! WONDERFUL!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
Okay, I confess. After years of following this recipe, I found myself with an extra container of sour cream and I did the unthinkable--I attempted a different (and quite popular) banana bread recipe from this site...and I am so sorry that I did. Never again will I veer from the wonderful brown sugar/banana banana flavor in this recipe. It is perfect and I am so sorry that I cheated. It was a one-time thing. It meant nothing. Won't ever happen again--EVER. :-) Thank you for the best banana bread recipe I've ever known. One tip--peel and freeze ripe or overly ripe (or large pieces that your kids decided after one bite not to finish!) bananas in a zippered bag. When preparing to make your banana bread, thaw them out in a bowl on your counter-top. Oh yes...they will look disgusting; oh yes....it may seem like the grossest thing you have ever cooked with, BUT the flavor is TREMENDOUS and they are ridiculously easy to mix into your batter--no mashing required! Thank you for this recipe--it's THE ONE!

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
Like most others, I made some changes to simplify the recipe. I did use ramen noodles and would recommend that others do the same. In addition, I used boneless, skinless chicken thigh meat and just added a little chicken bouillon to the cooked chicken juice as opposed to adding broth or water. I mixed a little cornstarch with with just a bit of water and the sauce thickened quickly and nicely. I threw in a can of rinsed bean sprouts (Polar brand is far superior to LaChoy in my opinion) and I used 1 frozen ginger cube and 1 frozen garlic cube in addition to the Mirin and soy sauce which I just threw in to taste. Left out the mushrooms--personal preference, but used a lot of green onion--would have added matchstick carrots if I'd had them on hand. Everyone in my large family loved the flavor--tasted like local Chinese restaurant lo mein to us. Added some sri ra cha on mine and WOW! We will definitely be making this again. Thank you!!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
After years of making and LOVING the other infamous banana bread recipe on this site, I decided to give this one a shot (and it didn't hurt that I had a spare 16 oz of sour cream that I had to use up!). Sorry, but this recipe doesn't even come close to the Banana Banana Bread recipe I've been following for holiday gifts, as a snack with hot tea, or whenever the spirit moved me. I really wanted to like this one, but I'm afraid I just don't. It was more of a hassle and the flavors weren't nearly as satisfying as I'd expected.
