Quick Chinese-Style Vermicelli (Rice Noodles)

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
Thank goodness for the person who recommended adding ginger. This really was amazingly bland when I made it exactly according to the recipe, but a little ginger and a LOT more garlic later, and I have a tasty lunch.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
My husband would never touch split pea soup, but I forced him to try this recipe and now he requests it. The kids lick the bowl. Outside the family, people still make a face when you mention split pea soup, but everyone who tries this recipe is a convert. A note about soaking: soaking split peas may reduce cooking time, but the person who says to soak and throw away the water because of gas is confusing beans and peas. I would never use the water I soaked beans in, there will be a terrible punishment for anyone who thinks to cut that corner, but peas are not gassy and do not require soaking (although sometimes soaking may improve the smoothness of the final soup). This is a VERY flexible, forgiving recipe that has always turned out great for me, soaking or no.
