Puffed-Up Zucchini
I added a heaping spoonful of the horseradish and it seemed to be the perfect balance. Really nice as a side dish to a red meat meal like roast or steak. I added the whole egg instead of a Tablespoon to save wasting it. It tasted fine, and it didn't ruin it, but it was a bit too much. I would stick to the amout called for. I didn't like that I had to wait for the veggies to cool before adding the egg (didn't want the egg to set before baking time) and that is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars (I hate waiting). I will make this again, but next time use bread crumbs and butter instead of crackers, and maybe top it off with a bit of chedder.

Gingery Mung Bean Sprouts Pancake
a little strange... I can't decide if I like it or not?! It needed more water (enough to make a batter). I didn't have the right sauce, so I substituted it with Tokastu sauce instead. Also added some toasted sesame seeds. Needed a bit of salt, and we dipped it in some sushi/sashimi style soy sauce. My husband thought it kinda tasted like something you might find in a bar Japan (although never came across it while living there) Might make again, only as a way to use up leftover sprouts, would not go buy them just of this.

Simple Syrup
I worked in a famous Italian Bakery visted by even movie stars and this was their now not so secret way of keeping their cakes fresh and moist! They made it by the gallons and added oranges cut in half during the boiling process. They also added amaretto licqure to it. They kept it in a bottle (wine or pop bottle will do) and sprinkled it on both the centre and top layers before icing. Just add a sprinkle to make it moist-don't soak it or you'll have a gross soggy cake. Good Luck!
