A Pad Thai Worth Making
This is a great, flexible recipe. I didn't want to go to a specialty store to get the ingredients for the sauce, so for the fish oil, I used the oil from sardines (and added a chopped-up sardine for good measure), I used soy sauce instead of oyster sauce, and used lime juice from concentrate, and added a little bit of vinegar to give it more punch. I also skipped the bean sprouts and used carrots (cut like match sticks) and shredded cabbage. I cooked the chicken and garlic first, then took that out and cooked the veggies until they were done, then removed them to add the egg, then noodles, sauce, etc. I skipped the shrimp too...and even with all these changes the recipe turned out fantastic. It was better than any restaurant pad thai and my boyfriend loved it too.

Authentic Mexican Tortillas
I wonder if this recipe calls for too much shortening. The tortillas I made were more like flat biscuits, in that they were not pliable and were very flaky. They tasted great, and my boyfriend loved them - although he kept calling it flatbread and we had to use them for "open-faced tortillas" because we couldn't bend them without breaking them. Another reviewer suggested Esther Nelson's recipe, and I agree that it was better (the recipe is exactly the same, except hers calls for only 2 tablespoons of shortening).

Tortillas I
I tried another recipe for tortillas and it wasn't as good as this one. I used butter for the shortening and they turned out great - the tortillas were soft and delicious. I followed other reviewers' suggestions to limit the amount of rolling I did with the rolling pin. I just pushed hard and rolled once, then turned it 180 degrees and did the same.
