Chef John's Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
This was PERFECT!! I soaked in buttermilk mix overnight. All the seasoning in buttermilk clung to the chicken and was under the skin also. Next time I will double most of the seasoning (s&p, garlic, and definately the paprika or leave as is and throw in some Lawrys or dry Adobo depending on my taste). I used more than 2 quarts of peanut oil and had a lesson in how that decreases the cooking time for the chicken by half!! lol...Despite the BROWN chicken lol, it retained it's juicyness much to my relief heehee. Next time it will be perfect ;) Also, for that nice crispy coating, after I breaded chicken I set on wire rack and covered in clean dish towel until the flour turned to a paste consistency-about 20 min. I had a little trouble keeping the temp at 350. I found 375 to be too high. But I find that getting temp to 370 right before adding chicken is good, because the chicken will decrease the temp, then you just decrease the heat a little to keep temp at 350. My chicken breasts were freaking ENORMOUS and I would not use giant chx breasts for this ever again lol.

Chocolate Italian Cream Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2014
I got this recipe from my Southern Living magazine and this is the same. IT IS SO GOOD!!!! I mean, it is addictive. I like it as is because I really enjoy the light airy chocolate flavor so I don't change a thing. Everyone raved over it. It was gone in 24 hours. I will DEFINATELY be making this again!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
Easy and Delicious! I used more butter than lemon or it's too lemony (3T butter, 2T lemon) and 4 cloves of sauteed garlic. Seasoned with S&P and parsley (fresh is better) and cooked at 400 for 12 minutes (the filets were on the thicker side. Served with steamed broccoli and rice.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
These were superb and very SOFT cookies. It was hard to tell when they were done but it was about 10-11 min for me when the edges turned golden brown (they still felt very 'undone' but once they cooled they were perfect). I cut the recipe in half and that was perfect for me and my 2 small kids. I also upped the vanilla to 1Tb and added 1tsp bak powder and 1/4tsp salt (again for half the recipe). I was so glad I increased the vanilla. The taste was perfect! Next time I cut back a little bit on the choc chips and increase a tad on the walnuts, not by much tho. I will definitely make these again! =)

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
PERFECT. I added allspice and ginger, but it would have been perfectly delicious with the recipe as is. I made a loaf and a dozen muffins. Muffins were done in 25 min. I poked holes in bread when done and poured some melted sugar cinn butter on it, but this was not necessary. It is wonderful plain.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Wonderful Tried and true recipe for me! I find that the tri-trip cut is best, but bottom round works too. The gravy is superb with a few glugs of red wine!! I like mine heavy on the onion flavor so always throw in onion quarters in the gravy as well, sometimes some garlic and rosemary but it's delicious without also. I made my beef broth a little more concentrated (I use maggie cubes and water) and about 2 hours before it was done I shredded my meat and this made the meat soak up the gravy wonderfully. The remaining gravy was just right! I make roasted carrots and onions also along with homemade mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. SUCH COMFORT FOOD!!!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
This carrot cake is PERFECT by the 3rd day. This recipe is perfect cuz it doesn't have too much cinnamon. I love cinnamon but I don't want my carrot cake to taste like a spice cake so this is perfect for me. The first day I decided I didn't like the raisins (which I had simmered in O.J. prior to adding) but the 3rd day I LOVED them in! I made a 13x9 and 45 min was perfect...I let mine cook for 50 and that extra 5 min dried the outer corners of the cake a bit.

Caramelized Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
This was EASY and Tasty! Kids loved =) I made it with chicken breasts (browned first with some adobo seasoning and minced garlic) Then cooked in pan for 30 min, took chicken out and wrapped in foil while I cooked the sauce down for another 30 min. Sauce thickened up on it's own (I doubled everything in the sauce BUT the water). Served sprinkled with green onions along with jasmine rice and sauteed spinach. Next time will add some minced ginger too. This would be good with any kind of chicken, but wings would probably be the tastiest :) Next time I will prob do the wings...DEF will be making this again! UPDATE: This was Awesome reheated on day 2or3!! I shredded the chicken in big chunks before putting it in fridge and it soaked up the flavor nicely =)

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
More like TEN stars!!! Holy (which is a odd saying lol *shrug) these were BANGIN delicious! I can't praise them enough. Ppl couldn't stop eating them and all said this was better than any restaurant. I seasoned the flour mixture with chili powder, a bit of Adobo and S&P- PERFECT for me, but my son said it was a little on the bland side (he ate the fish plain and not with all the taco fixings). I left out the capers and subbed cilantro for the oregano. Used a dark lager beer (amber brock). And served with pico de gallo. I made the white sauce and pico de gallo that morning so the flavors could marinate all day. Served with brown rice and black beans (for which I sauteed minced garlic and a little onion first, used Adobo chicken broth instead of water for rice, subtracted about a third cup liquid and replaced with a can of drained black beans...so good). Will reheat the fish under the broiler for yummy leftovers today-can't wait! I could eat these things for breakfast lol. So good.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
I have made this twice and my kids LOVE the meatballs!! Very easy to make, I could even make ahead in crock pot next time. Fresh herbs make all the difference. I also added fresh basil and oregano to sauce as well as parsley to meatballs. Def brown the meatballs first.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
so easy to make and incredibly versatile! Toned it down for the kiddos (3 oz or so of hot sauce, half the cayanne/chile pepper). Added mexican oregano and cumin along with paprika. Served on french rolls broiled with garlic butter, provolone and/or gouda cheese, tomatoes, avacado, lettuce and mayo. YUMMM...had a sandwich yesterday and today and loved them! But that's my limit...I don't do alot of red meat and I can feel it...

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
So EASY. I added a little bit more flour and chick broth. Basted egg whites on bottom crust and pre-baked for 4-5 min before adding filling. Added frozen peas to filling right before pouring in crust. Added celery salt and thyme also. DELICIOUS! My 10 year old son gobbled up the filling without the crust or chicken and it was loaded w/veggies! WoW! Def make again. Would work w/beef or turkey also. Also spread egg whites on top crust and that made it stay flakey and perfect even when reheating in microwave the next day.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
Delicious sauce but DOUBLE it! The stated amount is good for about a pound of chicken. Would be GREAT w/ wings!! I made w/chick breast b/c thats what I had on hand. Used 1 tsp grated ginger and increased the garlic. Used brown sugar instead of white, decreasing it just a tad but not much. #Keeper. UPDATE 8/3/12 I made these with wings yesterday and they were AWESOME!! My 10 yr old son is obsessed w/Zaxby teriyaki wings and this is the first time I came close to their high rating lol. I baked them at 400. Doubled sauce and poured half over wings before baking, then basted every 10 min roughly until wings were done and sauce was gone. Finger licking good!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
5 for great tasting meat free meal! I loved these! For future use I will remember that the amount of beans has to be equal to or slightly greater than the sweet potato. I made some with a little more sweet potato than bean and didn't really like those...I actually prefer about 2/3 bean to 1/3 pot, but 1/2 1/2 was good too! I used purple onion and LOVED the bits or carmelized onion in there...so GOOD!!! Perfect spices for my 5 year old but if it were just me I would add some roasted peppers and up the spices a bit. DEFINATELY will make again. Great to reheat on the go!! Have some in my freezer right now =)

Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
5 for method. I can't rate the seasoning because I added more using Chef Johns Buttermilk Fried Chicken as a rough guideline. But this method is the absolute BEST you will find-hands down!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Holy Smokes this was Bangin!! Right on point. I made as directed but threw in a sazon packet just because. Mashed about a half cup or so of potatoes to thicken up soup. Used Yukon golds cuz they were on sale. Topped with crumpled crispy bacon, shredded cheddar cheese and chives. DELISH!!! I am now wishing I had tripled the recipe as it has all been demolished on the first day =) I want MORE....nomnomnom

Spicy Crispy Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
OMG!! BUSSSSSSSTIN!! I'm not even a big red meat fan but this right here??!!!! So good. I'm eating leftovers cold right now. Fab thing about it is it's so easy. I actually marinated it in Mojo overnight and then squeezed it dry with a gazillion paper towels. Followed directions to a T pretty much aside from the mojo marinade. No problems with the cornstarch not sticking. After coating the strips I laid them out and covered them with a kitchen towel until the coating was pasty like (which is what I do when I fry chicken). Everybody gobbled it up. In fact we were eating strips standing at the stove before they even made it to the table! lol. I will DEFinately be making this again =)
