Gourmet Root Beer Float
I made a delicious-looking float, all right, but boy! was it weird! I think that the ice cream deluded the root beer. It melted before I could drink half of it! I think either you don't need as much ice cream or something.

General Tso's Chicken
It was OK, but I'd rather have the breading on it to really be like restaurant food. Too much onions (our family doesn't like it) and banana ketchup was strange. Too many chilies! I am ok with sorta spicy stuff but it was too much. It wasn't too bad, but not too good. thanks for the attempt, though. overall, it was ok but not a favorite. P.S. This sort of food if you go to china 30 yrs ago they'd be like "what in the world is that stuff?" not real chinese food, Americanized.

Joe's General Tso's Chicken
I like it some, but there are some things that I would mention. First, rice wine. I dunno what it was, so i tried it. Next, soy sauce. I didn't add any of that because my family hates it. We had a great mandarin sauce that I like to put on meatballs and drizzled it with that. Delicious! Last, pepper pods. Not that much flavor. So I rate only 3 stars. Nice try on the recipe, but didn't like the things above. Other than that, an OK recipe.
