A litte different but it grows on you. Didn't have any creme fraiche so I used sour cream. Came out fine. Will fix it again! Read More

I tossed the hot penne with sour cream prior to adding the hot tomato sauce--very silky. Instead of tuna I added pre-cooked Chinese BBQ pork. Kids loved it. Read More

Some people might say that I didn't really have this dish at all but lacking some ingredients I got a little imaginative with substitutions: Lacking a leek I subbed a small onion and some minced garlic diced tomatoes (with juice) did fine instead of crushed I forgot the honey.:( Dales steak marinade worked well instead of soy sauce (they have somewhat similar flavors). And with no 5-spice no creme fraiche and no sour cream I used (don't laugh) ranch dressing ground cloves ground cinnamon basil parsley and ground black pepper I also threw some crunchy chow mein noodles on top before serving. Maybe I changed too much but my wife ate it and I'm looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow.:) Read More

I really enjoy the flavors in this simple dish that is sure to satisfy. While it might not be a favorite it's one I always come back to. I like to make it a little creamier than the recipe calls for. Try pairing it with salad and the Asian Ginger Dressing. Read More

I can see how this would be an acquired taste for some. I liked it a lot and it was easy to throw together with ingredients I already had in the house. Read More
