You might check some of the online recipe sites. I have a recipe site that has some Chinese dishes and recipes. Most of my recipes are either low fat or low carb, so that's a good thing for anyone on a diet or watching their health. I love General Tso as well. When I wasn't on a diet, I had it all the time. I'm so hungry now, that I might just have to break my diet! LOL! I should eat more often. Most times, I think that Chinese food is the only really good reason to break a diet. I hope you can find some recipes to make your favorite Chinese dishes at home. Best of luck. You can find the link to my recipe blog on my profile page.

I don't know if you have a deep fryer or not but I do know a way you can make crab rangoons at home if you have one...here's the recipe: INGREDIENTS: 1 quart oil for frying 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 clove garlic, minced 2 tablespoons minced onion 1 medium head bok choy, chopped 2 tablespoons chopped snow peas 1 (6 ounce) can crab meat, drained 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 (14 ounce) package small won ton wrappers DIRECTIONS: 1. Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or large, heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) 2. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and onion, and saute for 2 minutes. Add bok choy and pea pods, and stir fry until the bok choy and pea pods are crisp-tender. 3. In a large mixing bowl, combine crab, cream cheese, soy sauce and sauteed vegetable mixture. Drop mixture 3/4 tablespoon into the center of a won ton wrapper. Fold the wrapper in half to make a triangle. Seal the wrapper around the mixture by wetting your finger with cold water and pressing the ends together. 4. In batches, fry the dumplings in the prepared oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. However, if you are looking for something that is less fattening I would suggest just not eating them in the first place LOL!!! I LOVE rangoons so I can completely understand wanting them :D I'd eat them at every meal if I could :D I hope the recipe helps.
