  1. Unbelievably good! A friend brought me a home-grown Savoy that was almost too pretty to cook, but I'm glad I did, using this recipe. I read the other reviews and took the advice about adding a bit of onion and crushed red pepper, and also dashed a bit of sesame oil with the olive oil for sauteeing. I ate the WHOLE skillet in one day, but it's so healthy and low-calorie that who cares? Thanks Bergy!
  2. Fantastic! I added crushed red pepper and some chopped sweet onion. It smelled so good and I was so hungry I forgot lime juice. I'll try it next time. A easy, healthy and inexpensive dish that's full of flavor. Love it!
  3. This was a great last-minute addition to Pad Thai. It has an unexpected kick to it that you don't notice at first bite. I did end up adding some red pepper flakes to mine. I think the leftovers would make good eggroll filling. Thanks for posting!
  4. I really found this recipe lacking in great flavor. Just made for the first time, following recipe as stated, plus added crushed pepper, little sesame oil, and some onion, and thought “this is bland,” and needs help. Perhaps an overnight in the fridge would bring out something.
  5. Yummy.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
