Thanks, PA. And to think it came from my "home" newspaper too - how did I miss this?

Good stuff, GB! I'm a General Tsao's freak but the closest Chinese restaurants do a mediocre job, unfortunately. That reminds me, I made the sauce myself once and it turned out pretty close to the real thing. I think I posted the recipe but I'm not sure. I'll try to hunt it down.

I saw this the last time I was there, SierraCook, but could not put the two flavors together, pepita's are the center part of a pumpkin seed. Let me know how it tastes and if you like it. I will be going there again next week probably, so I would consider trying it if you liked it.

I will try it this weekend and let you know what I think.

I'm afraid I haven't, Norge. I'm having some mechanical problems with the "Danger Ranger" and I don't trust it to go too far. TRUST ME, once I get the problem fixed (vacuum hoses I'm told, whatever those do), heading to TJ's is a top priority! I'm tired of shopping at the local Kroger!
