Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
If you want a beautifully encrusted parmesan potato, tender and delicious, this is your recipe! It was agreed these beat out the potatoes I normally roast and have to fuss over. I always use an iron skillet and heat it up prior to putting the potatoes in the skillet and I often use garlic infused oil. I also roast these on the grill quite often. Thanks, Belle, these are amazing and the sour cream is a nice touch!!

Bellepepper's Orzo and Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
I have been making this quite often since Bellepepper brought it to the Buckeye Bash a few years ago. It is one of my favorite "go-to" salads for a BBQ with company (it also travels well)! I have never changed anything except to use dried cranberries instead of currants. It is very easy to assemble if you heed Bellepepper's suggestion to cook the orzo and wild rice ahead of time (toss the cooked orzo lightly in veg. or olive oil), freeze, and toast the nuts a few days before. I assemble the day before entertaining but save the nuts and parsley to add just before serving. Serve this and I promise someone will ask you for the recipe! Thanks, BP, great recipe!

Picnic Potato Salad with No Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
Great stuff, enjoyed this very much! I reduced the amount Dijon slightly and used feta instead of blue cheese, just for personal taste. It is a nice alternative from the traditional mayo based potato salads. Thanks, It's a New Day!

Lucky's Gazpacho

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
Warm summer days and gazpacho, what could be better!?!? This was so easy and enjoyable! As many suggested, I used V8 but otherwise followed the recipe. I waited a full 24 hours to let the flavors blend. Good stuff! Thanks, Lucky!

Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
Amazing stuff! I grilled these so I made the sauce, brought to a boil and added 1T cornstarch added to a 1/4 cup cold water to thicken a bit. The thighs cook relatively quickly so I painted them before putting on the grill and each time turned. The thighs had beautiful grill marks and the sauce adhered nicely. I served with steamed broccoli and steamed rice drizzled with extra sauce. These were so good, Hubs asked me to grill up a bunch to have in the fridge for lunches. Thank you!

Grilled Rock Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
Made these several times and they are so simple and easy. I bought 4 small tails and served them on top of filet mignon for an elegant summer meal from the grill.

Mushroom Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2013
We loved this! I followed the recipe for the most part other than just shaking the chicken in the flour mix in a zip-loc bag and removing the chicken after browning as almost everyone seemed to do. I did place the breasts back in on the sauce, slightly reduced, and let it simmer about 10 more minutes to be sure the chicken was done. It had wonderful flavor and the chicken was so moist! I think a good salt/pepper ratio is needed in this recipe. It is a definite keeper and will make it again soon! Thank you!

Mediterranean Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
Loved this! I followed this recipe and wouldn't change a thing. However, I would add feta and perhaps a few sliced kalamata olives if I have them on hand next time. Thanks, it is a nice alternative to mayo based potato salads.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
Have made this several times and it is so simple and absolutely tasty. Don't know why I never reviewed it! It makes a great main dish and awesome Reubens the next night! I find the thin slices for the sandwich are much easier to cut after it has been in the fridge.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
Another glowing review for this muffin! I changed the servings to 12 and made 24 mini muffins, baking them 14-15 minutes. Other than that, I followed it exactly and loved the results. This is a keeper! Thank you!

Sweet and Sour Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
Wow! We really enjoyed this! The meat was very moist and the sauce very flavorful! I too, wanted to grill this. I started sautéing the pineapple in a bit of butter and when it was golden, I added the rest of the ingredients and reduced it on the stove. I used an immersion blender once it had reduced to smooth it out a bit. While I didn't use nearly half the hot sauce and pepper flakes, it was perfect for us and it can be customized to an individual "heat to sweet" liking. Thanks, Chef!

Chef John's Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
Nice and moist with great flavor!! I followed the recipe but left out the chocolate (rarely eat the stuff - really!!). I must have trust issues because I first checked the bread after an hour and sure enough, it was spot on at an hour and 10 minutes! I think I have finally found a nice banana bread to stick with! Thank you, Chef John!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
I liked this! It has a lot of flavor without being too spicy (I used "mild" everything) and is very filling. I made it in a Dutch oven, stove top, brought everything to a boil, covered and reduced the temp to low and simmered for 4 hours. While I liked it, I would probably use ground turkey or shredded chicken next time, but I will make it again! Thank you!

Healthier Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
Have made this a few times and thought I had reviewed it before! I made it again this morning and it is as wonderful this time as the first time! I do cut the oil and add a half cup applesauce. I used white whole wheat flour this time with no consequence and added 3/4 cup raisins and 3/4 cup chopped pecans. Best pumpkin bread I've ever had!!

Huli Huli Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
We really enjoyed it! I used 2 large bone-in chicken breasts and halved the marinade. I left them in the fridge over night. While the oven preheated, I boiled the marinade, reduced the temp and let it simmer to thicken to use as a baste. I will definitely make this again and grill it next time. Thank you!!

Chef John's Caramel Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
This was the bomb! And so easy!! Chef John doesn't recommend breast meat but that was what I had. So, I made the sauce, removed 1/3 cup to caramelize when cooking the chicken and reduced the rest before starting the chicken. Adding the already reduced sauce cut down on cook time so the breast meat remained moist. Don't forget the peanuts & scallions! They make an already amazing dish even better. I did use fresh flatleaf parsley instead of cilantro. Thanks, Chef John, great dish!
