Naan

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
Easy recipe. I will make this again. Next time I think I will add more garlic. Notes: heat the water to 112 degrees, add sugar and yeast. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Add 1.25 cups of flour. Stir until incorporated. Add the remaining cup to mixture. When the remaining cup is added won't incorporate easily. Pour dough and flour onto countertop. Knead flour into dough. After needing for 7 minutes, rub dough with oil and allow to rise. Turn on over at 200. Cover bowl with dough and place bowl on one of the back burners. Dough should double in about 1 hour. Follow the recipe from here.

Carrot Pineapple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I wasn't a huge fan of this recipe. It wasn't sweet enough and the addition of pineapple was a little off. I wouldn't make this recipe again.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I really like this recipe. I followed it almost exactly and I was pleasantly suprised. My changes: sauted onions, minced garlic (4 garlic cloves), celery and carrots in butter until tender. Used whole milk instead of heavy cream. Another note, 2 chicken breasts are definitely needed for this recipe because it makes quite a bit of soup. Also, don't add the chicken until the very end, i.e. after the soup has cooked for 10 to 15 minutes with the cream/milk roux. As a final touch, add 1/2-3/4 tsp of salt in addition to the amount listed in the recipe.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Good recipe. I used butter instead of shortening and did not need the dough. I also needed the full amount of milk but next time I may not. I would suggest first pouring half the amount of milk into the flour mixture and then add more as needed. After cutting out the biscuits, I placed them in the fridge for 25 minutes. In addition to this, I brushed butter on each of the biscuits after 7 minutes of baking. I then put the biscuits back in the over and baked for 5 more minutes. The biscuits cooked for a total of 12 minutes.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Solid recipe. I used 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 1/3 cup. I like my rice pudding a little sweeter.

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
I coated the squash with a little bit of salt and vegetable oil before roasting. I let squash roast for 1 hour. Although I halved the recipe, I used 2 garlic cloves and two ripe Bartlett pears. The half and half is not necessary.

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I would not make these again. They are just ok. As a note for those of you that make this recipe, the cookies only need to bake for 10 minutes.

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
This couldn't be easier to make. I simply added the cream to my food processor and let it do the work. I word of advice, make sure to strain off all of the buttermilk and rinse the butter a few times to make sure the buttermilk is gone. I would recommend using cheesecloth to strain the butter but if that is not available a fine mesh strainer will work too.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
These bars are okay but they are missing something. I think these would be really good if eaten warm with ice cream. I used a little more than 3/4 cup of strawberry preserves instead of raspberry preserves. I also creamed the butter and sugar together first, added the salt, flour and oats. I didn't line the bottom of the pan with foil. I simply greased the glass pan and it came out just fine.

Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
I used the recipe as a base and it turned out great. I halved the recipe, used 3 garlic gloves, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of cumin and a ton of sun dried tomatoes, 2 chipotle peppers and a few drops of siracha sauce.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
I have made this on two separate occasions and both times it turned out pretty good.  The first time I mixed of the seasonings with softened butter and slathered it all over the chicken.  That turned out to be really messy and I probably would not do that again.  The next time I made this, I made it with two chicken quarters.  I placed the chicken in a 9X9 square pan and let it marinate overnight.  The following day I took the chicken out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter top for about 30 minutes.  I then baked it in the oven on 325F for 2 hours.  I didn't open the oven until after the 2 hrs.  Update 3: used a 4lb chicken.  I did make a few minor changes to the rub (halved the recipe): Instead of 1/4 tsp cayenne, I used 1/8 tsp and instead of 1/4 tsp of garlic powder, I used 1/2 tsp.  I marinated the chicken overnight and let it sit on the counter about 2hrs before putting in the oven the next day.  The rub was placed on and under the skin as well as in the cavity.  Cooked in oven at 250f for 1.5 hrs and then raised the temp to 325F and cooked for another hour or until the thigh reached an internal temp of 165-170F.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
Very good cheesecake. Tips: Grease all sides and bottom of the springform pan. Use 2 cups of ground Oreo cookies, 2tbs of sugar and 6 tbs of butter for the crust. If you don't have half and half use heavy cream. For the cheesecake filling using 3/4 cup and 2 tbs of sugar. Although everyone's oven is different, I would definitely bake this for 60 minutes. Turn off oven, crack the door and allow to firm up (about 10 minutes).

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
This is terrific! I used 2 cloves of garlic minced, 2.25 tsp of mild curry powder, 2 tbs of flour, about 3/4-1 cup of onion, 3 carrots, 1.5 celery and a 1/4 cup of rice. I also chopped 1/2 a apple and grated the rest of the apple. The heavy cream is not necessary. For more tender chicken, I didn't add it until after the soup has simmered with the rice. I prefer this soup with homemade chicken broth but in a pinch store bought will also work.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
These are good cookies but they are not anything special. I would probably make them again. Also, since I slightly flatten my cookies before putting them in the oven they only need 7 minutes to cook.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
I put a little over 30 crackers in the food processor with 1tsp of garlic powder, 2 tbs of flour, 1/2 tsp of black pepper, and 1 tsp of season salt. I also dredged the chicken in flour then in egg and then teh saltine mixture. This was ok but it needed more seasoning. I'm not sure I would make this again.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
I should probably rate this with 4 stars but because I made alterations I can't fault the recipe. I used italian seasoning instead of dried oregano and crushed tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes. I also added a splash of pinot grigio and about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
I forgot the onion and even without it was great. It doesn't need anymore sugar and there is no need to double the liquid ingredients. Keep the recipe as it is. I will make this recipe again.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Easy recipe. I will make again. Update: The first time I made this I used oil in the bottom of the pan to cook the pancakes. The second time I cooked these I used butter as instructed in recipe. The second time they were much better. Also, I used a 1/3 measuring cup to scoop the pancakes into the pan. Update 2: Instead of milk and vinegar, I used buttermilk. I have made these pancakes with milk and buttermilk and both are great. Update 3: Instead of using 2 tablespoons of vinegar, I used 1 tablespoon. The pancakes where still light and fluffy.

Millie Pasquinelli's Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Good recipe. There is no need to salt your chicken if you plan to use the amount of season salt outlined in the recipe. I would decrease the amount of season salt next time. If cut the recipe to serve 3, I would probably only use about 1 tbs plus 1/3 tsp of season salt. This cooks in about 20-25 minutes with the heat on medium low.
