Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2014
A nearly perfect comfort food. I made this using leftover Thanksgiving turkey, deviating from the original recipe, only by adding a cup of diced potatoes to the mix. It worked out very well and was enjoyed by all. It's a basic, no fail recipe that can be tailored to any taste. I'm sure I'll be making some version of this for years to come. Thanks for sharing Rob.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
I made this recipe as written, except my thighs were not skinless. I liked the idea of using the various ingredients, instead of buying bottled teriyaki sauce, but found the end result less than hoped for. While a lot of folks use a timer to tell them when something is done, it's much better to use a thermometer. I found the chicken got to an internal temp of 165 (perfect), long before it had been in the oven for 60 minutes.

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
I made this using rotisserie chicken and homemade noodles. It couldn't have been much easier, and I doubt there is much of anything one could do to mess this recipe up. The only other thing I changed was to add a splash of cream towards the end of simmering. I felt this added just a bit of richness to the broth.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2014
I made the recipe exactly as written. I thought they were OK, but, all in all, just average. It's a good start, but way too bland. If I use this recipe again, I'll add lots of garlic, basil, jalapeño, or something, to kick it up a notch. I liked the suggestion about using spaghetti sauce. It might be fun to use pasta instead of rice, too.

Zucchini 'Noodles'

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2014
I bought a little kitchen gadget called a spiralizer. By pushing/twisting zucchini (or, yellow squash, cucumbers, etc), through the gadget, it creates perfect spaghetti like strands. The prep of this recipe is made very simple.

Fresh Corn and Avocado Salsa (Pioneer Woman)

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2014
Pick the most plump ears of corn you can find and go easy on the salt.

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
I was very pleased with the outcome. I sliced, julienned and actually used an apple peeler on the cucumbers to vary their shapes. It all worked. Flavor was wonderful, even if it was a tad sweet for my taste.

Sesame Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2014
As written, I gave this recipe a 3 out of 5. The sesame is just way too much! As others suggest, the sesame needs to be at least halved. A little goes a long way! That having been said, the recipe has the potential to be very good. I'll try again with a few adjustments. By the way, it's much better cold, after sitting in the fridge overnight.

Salsa II

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
I've made this recipe twice now. It has a really nice flavor, but is a bit mushy. Next time, I'll boil the mixture short of being soft and let it rest off the heat. Like so many salsas, it's better after a day or two in the fridge.

Ground Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
I made this pretty much according to the recipe, but admit to adding a 2nd can of tomatoes and 4-5 cloves of minced garlic. I then served it on a bed of white rice. It was excellent, or I think maybe "satisfying" is a better word to use. This is comfort food. It's not what I would call restaurant quality and it's not going to win any cook-off contests, but it's damned good! When I make it again, I'll add some red pepper flakes, a bit of cayenne or some Louisiana Hot Sauce for a little extra heat. Thanks Graham!

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
The flavor was good, but it never really got crispy. In retrospect, I think I used a "too small" baking dish. It probably would have been helpful to use a baking dish where the chicken wasn't crowded. I might also try halving the butter, as well.

Pot Roast in Foil

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
This is very good as written. It made an abundance of gravy and I was actually very surprised at how tender the beef was. I can only guess that some of you, complaining that the meat was dry, used cuts with little, or no fat. Next time, I'll add some sliced onions on top of the gravy mixture. Thanks, LBEECH!
