    I rated a 4 because I had no celery or mushrooms, instead I grated in 4 small carrots. Maybe could have used a bit more soya sauce or something for more flavour. A nice and easy recipe, tasted good too. I will try this again, and experiment with flavourings then rate again with the results.

    Was in Florida @ condo without a cookbook and looked online for a Chow Mein recipe. Tried this and have made it a number of times since. Have added chow mein vegetables or bean sprouts to original recipe as we like that extra crunch.

    Recipe was on the money! My wife and I really enjoyed it. I added some crushed up cashews and a little more soy sauce. Thank you for sharing!

    This was interesting. It definitely seemed to get better after standing for a few minutes. I axe-d the mushrooms and added water chestnuts instead. I also used brown rice instead of white, which I think added to it nicely. Maybe not a casserole I'd serve to company, but definitely something that the kids would eat again.

I am retired and live in Oklahoma. We use to raise scottish terriers, but now just enjoy having 3..one of which is a rare wheatland scotty. We have 2 grown daughters and my oldest has my grandson & granddaughter. Katy is almost 13 now, and I love and cherish the time she spends with me. My youngest dd is FINALLY having a baby,,a little girl due on April 1 '05. We are very excited! Hubby and I love taking out our pontoon boat every chance we get...we love to fish, but I'm happy just to be out on the water :) I love all kinds of cookbooks, especially southwest and cooking for two meals. Of course Zaar is the best recipe site on the net! I've started copying zaar recipes for my granddaughter and she says she'll never be able to make them all :) My hobbies include my dogs,,grandkids, painting art hobbies, and most crafting...love garage sales too!! I really love working outside in my gardens, but health and "old bones" keep me from it more than it used to. My hubby and I love to travel and also fish. I have used this site for awhile now and I'm embarrassed I haven't shared more of mine. Guess I've been busy making yours! When I have a question, the members here are so friendly, helpful and very quick to answer back! Of course, you've figured by now I love to talk!! I have to say my love for cooking comes from my mom. She is one of those cooks that just gets into the kitchen and starts cooking with no recipes and everything she makes is wonderful! She's about the best "all around cook" I know! I'd like to think I "inherited" some of her cooking intuition :) But getting close to 80 (sorry mom, but you sure don't look it) she cooks circles around me!
