The cashew chicken sounds good! My daughter can't eat soy so I tend to avoid cooking Chinese/ Thai food, etc--- I totally know what you mean about being nervous to try out a new recipe-- I often have new recipes on my menu for a few weeks before I finally make them. It's so funny isn't it? Being afraid of food? My little secret is that my kids are actually more brave than I am- I'm planning a "confessional" post about this :)
