Thai Cashew Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2004
This was okay. The flavor was almost overpowering and I had to eat it with huge spoonfuls of rice to compensate for it. Also, I had expected the marinade to cook up saucy because it didn't contain any sort of thickening agent (and I followed this recipe exactly) but it actually turned out to be very heavy and pasty. I will say it was interesting, but not at all what I was expecting.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
This is an incredibly customizable recipe with a nice, solid flavor whatever you add. I can't honestly give it four stars because I changed it so much, but the sauce flavor was fantastic, reminiscent of the lo mein at one of my favorite local Asian restaurants (I don't know what the other reviewers are on about. Maybe they're all eating at bad restaurants!). Some lo meins that I've had at restaurants have a bland, onion-y flavor I really don't like, but this one was much more to my tastes. I didn't add mushrooms, because I hate them, and instead chose to add some chopped broccoli, carrots, snow peas and water chestnuts and also used pre-packaged stir fry noodles instead of linguini (that seemed an odd pasta choice to me.) I used half the sugar, no water, and halved the chicken broth and corn starch because I had a feeling it would be too saucy. The amount of ginger in the original recipe was actually good and did not have to be altered. What I ended up with was just about perfect. Some odd ingredients listed (don't use linguini!), but overall an excellent flavor.

Pot Stickers Traditional

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
Very good. I made them with chicken, not pork being as I do not like pork, and they turned out surprisingly edible which is sometimes not the case when you modify main ingredients.

White Chocolate Mousse Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
Either I got this entirely wrong (which is possible, I'm notorious for botching seemingly easy dessert recipes), or the "mousse" is slightly misleading. This wasn't the consistency of a mousse, it was more like a heavy, eggy frosting that kept oozing out of the chocolate crust. It tasted fine- very rich, but felt like I had eaten a stick of butter. Blech.

California Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
Perfect and uncomplicated. I added lots of feta cheese. My husband has made this recipe several times on his own after the first time I made it.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
Excellent. I have no experience whatsoever cooking Indian food (though I eat it pretty often), and this recipe was incredibly easy and 100% "idiot-proof". The only modification I made to the original recipe was that I used a little less lemon juice (though I did use some) and no onion. I served it with Basmati rice, and my sister and her friends ate everything, no left overs at all! I will most definately be making this again.

Cashew Avocado Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2004
This was frikkin' fantastic. My husband has really middle-brow taste in food, hates avocados (and gee, nearly everything else...) and he actually liked it. I didn't add any dill, because I forgot it at the grocery store, and I would advise against using overly ripe avocados because they tend to mush up into the dressing a bit too much. I have no idea why other reviiews claimed this was dry, because it was just about perfect.

Pollo Bella

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
I thought this was very good, though I think I may have added too much garlic. My husband didn't like it at all, but he doesn't like gorgonzola so that would be obvious. It really does whip up a restaurant quality meal, and I would recommend it.
