Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
My search for the perfect homemade biscuit is over. Light, flaky - even non-biscuit lovers loved this one!

Bread Dipping Oil

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Very good! I mix up all the dry spices - I substitute garlic powder for the fresh garlic, and I omit the lemon juice and parmesan - and store it in a jar. Then I just sprinkle a little into some olive oil whenever we want it - easy to store, and quick and easy to whip up a little batch!

French Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Excellent recipe!!! I proofed the yeast with a 1/4 tsp of sugar first for 7 minutes, then added the flour and salt, the salt I increased as suggested to 1 1/2 tsp and I cut back on the flour like other reviewers, proably about 5 1/4 cup. The best bit of advice that I learned in a baking class is to not add more flour as you knead. If you keep kneading through the sticky phase the dough will eventually relax and the moisture will balance out. If you keep adding flour when it gets sticky the cycle never stops and you end up with a heavy, dense and not very pleasing loaf. Get a dough scraper to help you scrape it off the counter while it is in the sticky phase, and keep kneading until you pass the "window pane" test - where you can stretch the dough without it breaking and light shines through - then it's been kneaded enough. If it breaks before it's that thin, keep kneading. I followed what I learned from the professional baker with this recipe and it turned out fanstastic. I also baked it on a pizza stone and dumpbed a cup of water into a pan on the bottom rack while it baked to increase the humidity in the oven.

Mexican Bean and Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
very good - only used one can of black beans and didn't have any jalapenos - it did need a bit of playing around with the spices to perk it up a bit, and it was a bit dry so I added just a bit of EVO - will def. make again-

Thai Ginger Chicken (Gai Pad King)

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
Love this dish! In addition to making it as is (though I do double or triple the sauce), another version is to make just the sauce part, stir fry whatever vegetables I have on hand, cook a package of Udon noodles and toss them in with the sauce and veggies - tastes just like a noodle bowl at a restaurant!

Sourdough Scones

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Very good! I followed the recipe as is, except drizzled a powdered sugar glaze over them after they were baked. These were moist and fluffy - Kids and hubby both enjoyed them. The apple pie flavor was a bit subtle for my liking, next time I might try to boost it up a bit.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Delicious! So much flavor. This is the first turkey chili I've made that I don't miss the beef. I omitted the habanero for the kids. This will be my go-to recipe from now on, thanks jimbolya!!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Adjusted as others have with less chili powder, and more of the other spices. I like it because it is quick, and not from a can, and the flavor is good - not out of this world, but a solid sauce.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
My first veggie burger, ever eaten or made, and it was easy and delicious! I used 2 egg whites instead of 1 egg, and a bit more breadcrumbs than stated, red pepper instead of green, and less cumin for personal taste. I baked in the oven, and had no trouble with them falling apart, and I didn't squeeze out any of the moisture as others mention. Thanks laurenmu!!

Southwest Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
Delicious!! I used Italian Dressing beause that's what I had, and whole wheat bread for the croutons, and it was excellent. Instead of the package of Chili Seasoning I always have a jar of Taco Seasoning I (also from this site) so I used that instead. Will be making this often!!

Roasted Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This is excellent! If you like a creamier thicker chicken soup (as opposed to a brothy one) you will enjoy this. I only put in 1/2 the amount of evaporated milk and more stock than called for to suit my taste.
