    This looks amazing. I never figured out how to use chopstix, but for this I’m going to try again. Just mouthwatering.

    This was a great asian slaw. I didn’t use red cabbage or edememe, but did use the radishes. I didn’t have almond butter, so I ground up some flaked almonds with a mortar and pestle and a little olive oil. I also used only a small amount of sesame oil as I find it easily overpowers other flavors. I then grilled chicken that I had marinated in Thai green curry paste mixed with some coconut milk with some fish oil added, and had a salad made with the grilled chicken, the slaw, and some butter lettuce. Great! I’m going to try it next with peanut butter and peanuts instead of the almond flavor, and some different protein, maybe shrimp.

    I’ve enjoyed your website very much with all your delicious recipes. however, lately, the deer hunter apps persistently pops up each time I touch the page when it first opens. you may want to check it out as it is rather distracting, without letting your fans even read what’s on your page…
