So I often have an idea of what I want to make and what ingredients i have to make it. ... I usually search around the internet until i find something similiar. I often don't find exactly what i'm looking for... so I take ratios from other recipes and put what I want in it....
Yesterday I made Chinese Chicken Salad Dressing... it actually turned out pretty good and I would like to actually make it again.
So here is about what I did.
1 TBS seseame seed oil
2 TBS soy sauce
3 TBS white vinegar
1/2 tsp heaping of ginger
1/4 tsp heaping of chili flakes
4 tsp or so of brown sugar (to taste)
a dash of lime juice
later, i realized I didn't even put in garlic.. which i put in everything.. so next time I may add that. also the dressing had a little kick to it, but could use a little more depending on your likes.. so you could add a little more chili flakes to taste.
pour over salad ingredients of your choice.. top with cranberries, crispy wontons and delish.....!

My friend Julia sent me this recipe for Chicken Piccata. It was pretty good.. and I'd never used capers before. They kind of add a lemony zing to it. And the presentation looked pretty....
Here is the end result.
