Chinese Mabo Tofu

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
i love this recipe! i used to make mabo tofu from a mix, but lately i'm trying to make things from scratch to avoid the chemicals that come in processed foods. this was easy to make & you know exactly what goes in it! i put in eggplant & green peppers & that really added to the dish. i used leftover ham instead of ground pork & it turned out great. also used red chili sauce instead of the hot bean sauce. basically, anything spicy should work. thanks for sharing a great recipe. definitely will make again.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
great recipe! no need to use expensive wine-- i used $3 wine from trader joe's. if you are a lightweight like me, you don't need to put in the brandy nor triple sec. tasted fine without it. experiment by putting in different fruit juices, such as cranberry, apple, grape, etc. sprite, or carbonated fruit sodas are a great addition, too (don't use diet). i skipped the cherries & didn't miss them. i recommend making a block of ice in a tupperware & put sliced fruit in there, and put it in the punch bowl. very pretty. i also recommend using organic fruits since you will be drinking the juices & oils from the skins. don't wanna risk any pesticide getting in your drink, as the fruits will be soaking for hours.
