Orange Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2014
I loved this dressing! Full of fresh, mildly sweet taste, just the right amount of everything. Yes, it is thin, but why is that a problem? I prefer thinner dressings, they combine with greens better. I didn't have 4 hours for it to sit, used it right after I made it, and it was very delicious. Definitely going to be a staple dressing in our house.

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2014
I first tried this recipe about 3-4 months ago, and I can't even count how many times I have already made them since then. Followed the recipe exactly, nothing needs to be changed. Flaky, soft and moist inside, crispy outside. Love the fact you can make it when you have time, freeze them, and bake in the mornings as many as you need, serving them hot and fresh. Thank you, reviewers, who gave this idea! My husband can eat them every morning and not get tired :) Now I always double the portion, so I don't need to make them every week, but only every other :)

Moist Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
Made it today for the first time and it was AMAZING! The only reason I gave it 4 stars - I made some changes to make this recipe a little bit healthier. I substituted 1 cup of regular flour with 1/2 cup of whole wheat and 1/2 of oatmeal flour; instead of 1/2 cup oil I added about 1/4 cup sour cream+30 ml cognac+2 tbsp oil. Next time I might use applesauce instead of 1/2 oil, just didn't have any on hand this time. Some people added espresso to enrich the flavor, I added cognac ;) Also I will cut sugar to 2/3 of a cup, 1 cup made my muffins too sweet.

Beef Enchiladas with Spicy Red Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I really liked this recipe, much more than the one I was using before. And the fact that's from scratch make me like it even more. I don't live in the US, so "use a can of ... or a package of ..." very often don't work for me, just because I can't buy it here. Not sure I would anyway, thinking how things taste better when they are made from scratch, and also I can control what I add to it. Though I had to make few small changes to fit my taste. First of all, I am not a huge fan of a very spicy food, so I cut the chili powder on half and it was still very spicy for me (though my husband loved it :) Next time will add even less. Second, I used a large can (28oz) of tomatoes with juice mashed with blender until smooth) and cut tomato paste in half, omitted basil and cut chicken broth to 1.5 cups (because I already had more liquid in tomatoes). Third, I didn't understand why you need to keep cooking the meat sauce for 30 more minutes after adding cheese.. I cooked it for 20 min or so, added cheese, covered with lid and turned off the heat. Followed the recipe in other steps, will make it again!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
I like trying new pancake recipes and this one is very very good! Will definitely make it again and again through the season. I followed the directions and it turned out great, no need to add more milk or more spices. I baked pumpkin and pureed it with blender few days in advance - easy and all natural :) I am sure you can use buttermilk instead of milk+vinegar, usually this is what I use for pancakes, but using milk+vinegar is more convenient, since we always have it at home :)
