Turkey Frame Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2014
I made this today and pretty much followed the recipe. I used the carcass of our TG turkey and TG turkey breast, plus some white meat I had frozen, so there was more white meat than dark. The beans made a colorful presentation and also an unexpectedly good taste. I only had bouillon cubes so I ended up adding 4 of them and some extra salt. I didn't have a stock pot large enough to submerge the carcasses so I used an old roasting pan. The liquid covered most of the meaty parts. I didn't have a lot of broth at the end so I added another two cups of liquid. The soup was thick and we had it for dinner with some rolls I had baked and frozen. My husband and I were dubious about it but it turned out very good. If I make it again I think I will used noodles.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
This was excellent! I used some chicken meat that was left over from a supermarket roasting chicken and a can of Tyson chicken meat. I seasoned it as the recipe said. I cut down the butter because thr chicken had a lot of flavoring injected into it. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Lemon Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
It turned out pretty good. Two things I'd do if I made it again: 1) use a lot less butter. Half of this amount would have been plenty. Thighs have a lot of fat, so it was a bit greasy. Actually 1.5 T of butter and 1.5 T of olive oil would have been good. 2) I baked these in my large cast iron skillet. I would have heated it more on top of the stove so that the chicken sizzled when I put it into the pan. The coating didn't get crispy. The lemon citrusy taste was really good though. 3) I didn't have curry powder so I substituted garlic powder and it was fine.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
I was intrigued by all the positive feedback on this recipe. It WAS excellent. I took in some of the suggestions: I cut the salt to 1 tsp, I let the bread rise on my parchment covered stoneware sheet, I did brush the top with the egg wash and I did cut the bread lengthwise. I didn't have any cornmeal so I skipped that. The parchment prevented any sticking. I also put the pan of ice cubes in the bottom while baking. I used all bread flour and it was fine. I may try it in a loaf (in a loaf pan) and use the half bread flour/half AP flour option and see how that turns out. Has anyone ever tried this in a loaf pan? The crust is superb; nice and chewy and the middle was nice and soft. I did let the bread rise about ten minutes longer than the recipe called for, as it looked a bit on the skinny side at 40 minutes. I am a microbiologist by trade. Yeasts are living organisms. They respond to moisture and, more importantly, temperature. If it's cold, your yeast just isn't going to rise as fast as you'd like. There is an optimum temperature for all microorganisms. Since we work with human pathogens, and not commercial food organisms, I don't know the exact range that this would be. I do know that the extra ten minutes made all the difference in the rising for this bread.
