Chinese Chicken Soup
I had tons of lettuce growing in my garden and was looking for something (other than salad) to do with it. This soup turned out really good - I will be making it again. I used way more lettuce than the recipe called for, and I think it was better that way - lots of fresh crushed garlic also. I used red curry paste to taste (probably about a teaspoon) instead of the chili paste (I wasn't sure what that was), and definitely don't forget the tumeric.

Fettuccini Carbonara
Incredible recipe - more than just the sum of its parts. Our whole family loved it. I did make a few changes - extra garlic and shallots, but no onion. I fried the bacon up first, then drained off most of the grease, and fried the shallot/garlic in that. Used some pasta water to de-glaze the pan, and used about 3/4 c of cream.

Bagel Dip
This is a really good dip recipe - I will be making it again for Thanksgiving. I made a trial batch at first, halving the ingredients. I used a little MSG, plus the beef and it was waaaaaaaay too salty - unbearably so (and I am one who really likes salty stuff). So make sure you follow the instructions on the dried beef package and rinse the beef slices first - its much better this way, good flavor but not over the top salty. I also did not see a need to add that much MSG. I added some extra beef slices from the deli, chopped also. I served it was flatbread brushed with butter and garlic and toasted in the oven.
