Sweet and Sour Brisket
I altered the recipe by adding chunks of bell pepper prior to going in the oven, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. It tastes amazing and it got rave reviews from my guests, but I personally think that the recipe makes a bit too much sauce and the sauce is a bit too thin. Next time, I will: 1) Reduce the amount of sauce by 25% 2) Add cornstarch during the boiling 3) Add some pineapple. I will also clarify from the prior review that the "Chili Sauce" is a ketchup-like sauce sold in a glass bottle and it is only very slightly spicy. I personally prefer Heinz's product.

Amazing Simple Thai Tofu
I found this recipe very simple and fast. I liked the fact that it used mostly ingredients I already had around. The prep time was minimal and the cooking time was brief. I cook at a student cooperative house full of 20 hungry college students, so I scaled the recipe to 10 times its published size and used a large wok with excellent results. I found that the finished product was somewhat bland, so I added a bit of extra ginger and a pinch of cayenne, which gave it some needed extra kick. I also found it to be a bit dull and colorless, so I added some grated carrots, which gave it needed crunch and color. With my modifications, my housemates gobbled it up and made me promise to make it again! I recommend serving with rice.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup
Really good recipe that turns out well. I think that the recipe could use a bit more "oomph," so I use more chili powder and cumin, but this is a great comfort food recipe. Also, I find that cooking it a bit longer makes it thicker, which I like.
