Oriental Cold Noodle Salad
Thought it was good. The peanuts kind of got "lost" in there, though. I think I'd chop them bigger than I did AND put them on top at the very last moment so they keep their crunch.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas
Yup...pretty danged good! I did make a few changes, after reading most of the reviews. 1) I started with about 1/4 c. fine diced onion plus 1/4 c. med. chopped red bell pepper before the garlic/ginger. 2) Didn't have the rice wine so subbed cooking sherry instead - worked fine. 3) Added just a dash of crushed red pepper flake, Chinese five spice, and a dash of bottled teriyaki sauce. 4) I doubled the sauce, adding extra corn starch as I figure it's easier to thin a sauce (with a bit of water) than to stop the train and have to add more thickener. Worked great. Served with homemade fried rice and frozen egg rolls. Winner/winner!!

Pollo Bianco
Wow!!! Talk about good! I made this in my RV, mostly because I was craving chicken thighs and didn't want to have to buy a lot of stuff. This fit the bill. I used lo-so chicken broth rather than water. And it was still a bit salty so I would suggest being careful with salting the meat in the beginning. Next time, I'll make sure to really brown the onions well at the start as they don't get any browner later on. If you don't want it to "watery", just keep cooking it, to boil down the liquid 'til you get to the consistency you want. I served this with crusty bread and that was PERFECT to soak up that wonderful liquid. Wouldn't serve this without crusty bread down the road. This is one of the best things I've ever made in the RV!!
