General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Wow, this was SO good! I use a lot of the same ingredients in a lot of my stir-fry recipes, but they created a whole different flavor in this dish! This was how I made it: Marinated the chicken pieces in soysauce, white pepper and garlic powder and added some cornstarch AND flour-just enough to coat it. I fried the pieces until they were golden and crisp(took only about 2 minutes!). For the sauce, I used 2-3 tbsp of cornstarch, 4 tbsp of water, 1/4 cup soysauce, 1/2 cup of sugar, about 1/8 of white vinegar and grated in 3 garlic cloves. I added some thai chili peppers and green onion to a hot pan with a bit of oil, added the sauce and added water to the sauce until I got the consistency I wanted. I then added the chicken and it was fabbb!! I didn't use an egg to coat the chicken because I felt like it would just create a thicker breading around the chicken and I didn't use ginger either.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
I'm planning on making this without the sausage or cranberries because my family didn't like the cranberries in the stuffing last year. I feel like the sausage would be too much meat along with the turkey.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
I made this with fresh tomatoes since I didn't have canned. I blend the tomatoes and added it to a pan with some garlic and olive oil. I added the dried oregano, paste, parsley and wine but didn't have onions. I added some sugar and pepper flakes and it was good! I like the wine flavor. I'm going to try with the canned crushed tomatoes sometime soon.

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
I made this tonight for dinner and I thought it was okay while my family really enjoyed it! I made a few tiny changes to the recipe. I added about a tbsp. or less of honey into the walnut sugar syrup after it was done boiling, drained and put them in the oven on 350 for about 10-15 min or until it was golden, A LOT better than just boiled sugar. Added a tbsp less honey to the sauce and a little more mayo. Turned out pretty good but I wish the batter was more crispy, didn't want rubbery shrimp so I did not cook it for 5 min in oil.
