  1. Hi….I just happened to notice this site. Is this just for “famous” recipes??? Because I have one that is “World Famous”. It is the only recipe I have on my site, but it is “World Famous”. I thought you might want to add it to your “famous” recipes. It is called: CATHERINE’S WORLD FAMOUS FETTUCCINE ALFREDO — and it is very yummy.


    By the way, nice site.

  2. its seems very intersting but the lemon grass & celantro seems very localized and not widdely available world over, cud you recommend a better substitute.
    for chicken you could try the recipie “Baked Potato with Spicy Chicken Topping” on

  3. Both Lemon Grass and Cilantro impart a specific taste of their own to the soup … Changes will change the taste of the soup but … Isn’t that what cooking is all about – making good stuff from the ingredients you have?

    I would probably use green onions or scallions or bock choy if available in place of the lemon grass and I’m not sure what would substitute for cilantro (I am actually allergic to it so I leave it out.) Parsley or Basil are probably your best bets.

    Some people just grow their own lemon grass.
