Black Bean and Chickpea Hummus

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I started with Holly's Hummus recipe: I doubled the recipe, estimated the measurements, substituted lime for lemon juice and omitted the cilantro. I left the pimento in the green olives. Added powdered hot red pepper. It was good, even very good, but not great. So I looked at the Black Bean and Chickpea Hummus recipe and borrowed the black beans and curry powder from it. If I had grilled sweet red peppers on hand I would have added them also. I had organic yogurt on hand but didn't use it. It came out great and with 2 cans of chick peas and one can of black beans it was enough for me to bring to the girls at work for another game of "Look what I made!" I gave it 5 stars because it was exactly what I was looking for as a base to make my own. I gave the same review to Holly's Hummus recipe since they are both very similar and yet have individually important ingredients. Credit to you both!

Becca's Chicken-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I bought 4 packages of pork loin boneless rib chops (15) for a great deal and wanted to try a breaded fried recipe. I only cook fried food maybe once a year. This was it. I started with most of the original ingredients, though I didn't have saltine crackers or potato flakes. In the first bowl I increased the flour for the additional 11 chops (2 cups was plenty) added powdered sage, cumin, brown sugar, powdered cinnamon, ground red pepper, and increased all other original ingredients by sight. No change to the milk and two eggs bowl. In the cracker bowl I started with fancy herb and garlic crackers, some ritz knockoffs, added crunchy honey oats cereal and some bran flakes cereal, all crushed. As I tried one chop with the crackers and one with just the flour seasoning and egg I decided the chops with crackers where definitely better. I added some chil powder to the cracker cereal mix to give it what I thought it was missing. I did turn the heat down to medium and flipped at about 4.5 minutes per side to get the right color crust (used canola oil) So here I am with 13 fantastic chops at 2AM, I'm not hungry after the first two. Tomorrow I'll do a chicken gravy and rice dish to go along with it and hook up the neighbors and girls at work. Thanks Becca for a great recipe. I'm giving it 5 stars because it inspired my additions and it came out tender and juicy. - Dale

Golden Baked Chicken

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Added a generous helping of crushed red pepper flakes to dry mix. Lightly coated the pan with olive oil. Baked at 425 for 25 minutes and turned for another 25 minutes. Delicious and tender with a crunchy brown skin. To check on doneness, cut into thickest part of meat and sure it is all white to eat. I turn off the oven and finish cooking it low and slow for another 10 minutes, remove chicken from pan before it cools and soaks up the oil. Great baked chicken. - Dale

Creamy Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I substituted half and half for heavy cream. Green onions for shallots. Pinot Grigio for Chardonnay. Grated Parmesan for Romano cheese. Added just about 8-10 tiny cubes of mozzarella and about 2 tbs of crumbled Feta cheese just before serving. Substitutes were for on hand availability/savings. It was absolutely fantastic. I approximated all measures and adjusted for taste, I ended up adding more half and half to reduce the excessive lemon juice I had over squeezed from a half of lemon. I hope I can duplicate it next time, All four of us really enjoyed it and I will do this again soon. My compliments to the contributor of this recipe. I also made a bruscietta brushed with EVOO, using some of the pan fried shrimp, mozzarella, sliced baked/dried tomato slices, red peppers and garlic to go along with it.

Spicy Summer Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
I altered the recipe for the ingredients I had on hand Added: 2 cans of albacore tuna, drained juice of one can into water for pasta 1 can of garbanzo beans, drained juice into water for pasta Substituted macaroni for rotelli, boiled in salted water with a tablespoon of oil to keep pasta from sticking, stir occasionally until al dente, then drained in cold water. 1 cup of green olives with pimiento, drained 1 half pepper each of red, green and orange bell peppers, chopped into small cubes 1 cup of Dukes mayonaisse, if you don't have Dukes then you need to move farther south! Substituted 8oz of monterey jack for the mozzarella 1 small yellow onion, diced Just a dash of red wine vinegar, maybe a little more. Same with the EVOO. Added black pepper and oregano to taste. Mixed everything and chilled. It's probably not even the same recipe but SAL inspired me. That is what gets 5 stars from me.

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
I cooked two chickens in a clay pot (soaked the pot and lid in water for 30 minutes first) with this recipe and added one cup of jasmine rice to the broth in the bottom of the pot. Placed in a cold oven, then cooked for 1 hour at 400 degrees, turned oven off and let it finish under steam for another 30 minutes. We ate one chicken at a weekend bluegrass festival (triple wrapped the bird in aluminum foil and buried it in hot ashes in the campfire for about 45 minutes)Everybody love it! I brought the other bird back home for chicken and dumplin's (home made pasta recipe) added onion, celery, garlic and carrots for that bird. Both were delicious! And the rice was the best I've ever had. This is a keeper.

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I just made these noodles according to the recipe and increased the resting time to 45 minutes, I was able to roll them very thin. When rolled out completely and only 1/8" thick, the pasta sheet covers about 2 foot square. I dusted the top with flour, rolled the whole thing into a jelly roll and cut with a kitchen knife with no problem. Super easy and a lot of fun to make.

Pasta With Shrimp, Oysters, and Crabmeat

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
I also added spinach, cooked and drained. I used about 1/4 cup of the liquid from the oysters to add to the butter garlic sauce, I put the rest of the liquid including that from the canned crabmeat into the boiling water for the pasta. I reduced the butter for the frying pan by half. It is a quick and easy recipe but it still seems to be missing something. I didn't use salt and that maybe the key. I think I'll try green onions, basil, and oregano next time.

Charleston Shrimp 'n' Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Thanks for a wonderfully easy recipe. I made this tonight and it is absolutely excellent. I used one stick of unsalted butter, and only a small pinch of salt with the shrimp. I made creamy grits using chicken stock and boiled the shrimp tails in the stock, strained the broth for 3.5 cups, add .5 cup of water and 1 cup of half and half for smooth, velvety grits. Delicious for sure.
