Empanada Dough
This recipe doesn't use any butter INSIDE the recipe, so expecting a fluffy dough is naive. I knew it would be on the cracker type side because I didn't use any butter at all. I just rolled out the ball until I couldn't roll it out anymore and just cut out circles. Filled them up pretty packed of beef and crimped the edges with a fork, they fluffed up a bit but none of them exploded or had anything seep out. I used egg whites on the edges that I crimped with a fork, and egg yolk to brush on top for color. I read the other reviews and used 1tbsp of sugar and it was just right, not too sweet or anything. I liked how the dough tasted and its' consistency with the filling I used (ground beef, onions, garlic, tomato, oregano, and some flour). I will be making this again and I'll be making double this because it was only enough for like 10 empanadas :)

Egg Fried Rice
Just made this because I didn't really have many things to eat for lunch. I did have white rice, carrots, onions and garlic! I rinsed the white rice so I could get rid of some of the starch that makes it clump up. Followed the instructions to the letter (sans rice) and added a bit more soy sauce while it was cooking. I let it sit for a while (about 15 minutes) stirring it a bit every 3 minutes. Came out crispy and delicious, I mean, even the egg tastes really nice and I'm not a fan of egg yolks. I doubled up on egg, rice, onions, garlic and carrots because I was really hungry. It's a great recipe with the ingredients it has. Not many people have sesame oil lying around, or oyster sauce. I had veggie oil and basic vegetables, so I went with it, and it was good.

Shepherd's Pie VI
This recipe was a success. My boyfriend ate it all up and loved it from the first bite. I only cook for him and I'm always careful in the recipes I pick because anything too "complicated" to the taste buds confuses him. I added some worcestershire sauce and frozen vegetables and a bit more flour + broth because I'm pretty sure I used 3 1/2 pounds of lean ground beef. I used some leftover mashed taters and some new ones and it tasted great. First time I've ever had "shepherd's" pie, I'm actually going to try making actual shepherd's pie with lamb some time. This recipe was really simple and very tasty.
