Mushroom Rice
This is a good base recipe that you can add on whatever you would want to make for your more liking. I did adjust some other stuff to make it more like my preference; added yellow onion (chopped) instead of green onion, and added a small amount of cumin and caraway for additional flavor. Very nice side dish :)

Baked Teriyaki Chicken
Oh, I so loved this recipe! Made no modification, and it turned out just so wonderful!! I was really appreciative that I could make the Teriyaki Sauce from the scratch. This one was not too rich or too sweet to me. I don't like the store-bought Teriyaki Sauce in general as they tend to be too sweet, too rich, or simply missing something. I didn't need to wrap with the foil, with 30 min each side along with every 10 min brushing of the teriyaki sauce did a great job, it was moist and tender when they came out from the oven. The top side of chicken was very well looked like the typical teriyaki chicken with thickened teriyaki sauce on top, and the other side of the chicken was moist, as the juice from the chicken was about 1/3 of the baking dish and kept the another side well moist, so this side, the sauce was a bit thinner looking, but the sauce was already well absorbed in the chicken, so no downside as to the taste. This recipe will be definitely part of my routine dinner meals :)

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken
Loved this recipe! It's so easy, and the ingredients are relatively simple. I am impressed the fact that this recipe doesn't call for the store-bought barbeque sauce in it! First time, I followed the recipe exactly, and turned out great! Today, I added 1TB of red wine, just to experiment. The sauce mixture smelt wonderful.
