Spicy Southwest Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
We both liked this with one small change. I didn't care for the entire mixture being pureed...including the chicken so I pureed 1/2 the soup minus the chicken then added the puree back into the chunky corn, onions and chicken pieces for a chunky soup. Heated through and this was fine. It did need salt so we added that while eating. i did use homemade chicken stock so that does have less salt than canned. All in all a good and simple recipe.

Sweet Potatoes with Brandy and Raisins

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
This is a simple and perfect sweet potato dish. Love the fact that they are NOT overly sweet. (We don't care for the overly sugared/marshmallowed concoctions that are so popular) The brandy compliments the potatoes beautifully and the raisins add a nice touch. You can bake, peel and slice the potatoes ahead of time and keep in the frig. till needed which is an added bonus. I will try this with dried cranberries for the holidays. This dish will definitely be on my Thanksgiving table. Thanks for sharing!

Fruit-Stuffed Pork Loin

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
I had a couple of issues here. We love cumin, but the cumin overwhelmed the fruit flavors. Next time, I will cut the cumin in half. I never butterfly/stuff my stuffed roasts. I insert a long sharp, pointed knife lengthwise into the roast from each end. Then open it up a bit to make a pocket large enough to accomodate the stuffing. The presentation is so nice that way and it is way easier too! I did not get any useable drippings out of this. I ended up with slightly burnt glaze in the pan so no gravy. I think I will make a seperate gravy with white wine next time. Very nice recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!

Million Dollar Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
Excellent and easily the richest roasted chicken dish I have ever had. What makes this dish is the bread that sits under the roasting chicken. I could eat that alone, but I think I would die from acute gout :) I had no fresh thyme, so I subbed a tablespoon of dry thyme. I could not find Aleppo peppers at my market so I just skipped that entirely. Other than that, made this to a "T" and it was a hit. I put cut up red potatoes around the bird at the start and brushed them with the excess olive oil. Served it along with a wonderful Chardonnay and stuffed eggplant..... YUM!!!!! Thanks for making us feel like millionaires for a night Chef John!

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
OK, I cheated and I put 9 eggs in the water cuz that was what I had left in my carton. Things were going along smoothly, until I peeled just one egg that was a mess. I should never have cheated!!!! The other 8....perfect. Man, that is the last time I tweak this recipe!!! Thanks Ken!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
This couldn't be any easier, but it needs a little more flavor for our taste. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will triple the wine and mushrooms. Definitely needs a few cloves of freshly minced garlic, a pinch of salt and maybe some parsley to give it some oomph. Great and simple base though. Thanks for sharing!

Blueberry Yogurt Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
This was a simple recipe but it was a bit too sweet for our personal taste. If I make it again, I would skip the sweetened yogurt (and use plain) and I would eliminate the brown sugar entirely. I thought the idea of fully dusting the blueberries in cinnamon would work similar to dusting the berries with flour, but sadly the cinnamon trick still made the berries migrate to the bottom of the cake. Next time I would toss the berries with flour or some of the cake mix to correct that problem. Otherwise, a very good and simple coffee cake. Thanks for sharing.

Mauigirl's Greek Seasoning

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2013
This was a pretty good substitute for the expensive canned Greek seasoning. I did have to pump it up a bit with kosher salt, doubled the oregano and added 2 teaspoons of dried mint. Worked great for my dish. Thanks for sharing!

Greek-Seasoned T-Bone Steaks with Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
Wow! If you like Greek flavors this is a delicious, simple and quick recipe that packs alot of flavor. The only changes I made was to use a beautiful Prime grade tri tip from Costco that I had in my freezer and I added some olive oil to the rub/dressing. If you do not have Greek seasoning, there is a pretty good recipe for it here on AR. I would add a teaspoon of dried mint to that recipe though. We love the rub so much that next time I will double it. What a wonderful & simple dinner on a warm summer night. Thanks so much for sharing!

Garlic Chicken and Zucchini

Quick and tasty but I did put a spin on this. I made it as a stir fry. Added mushrooms, more garlic and some soy sauce and ginger to give this an asian twist. Thanks for the quick recipe!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
This is a fab method for roasted chicken. I upped the seasoning big time and stuffed the neck of the bird with a head of garlic. Two hours was just perfect on an indirect grill heat. Forgot to grease the beer can, but it still slid out easily with the help of some tongs. Very yummy and now a regular on our table :)

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry from Birds Eye®

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
This was fine. It was a very quick meal so it would be a good one for folks on the go. I used thinly sliced tri tip steaks, Yoshidas teriyaki sauce and my own steamed jasmine rice. This is more like a teriyaki with vegetables mixed in and not the traditional beef broccoli. The sweeter flavor may help you get some vegis in your kidlets too.

Babe Ruth Bars II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
These were quick and easy and a sweet treat for the neighbors. I used a corn flake cereal with dried cranberries because that is what I had on hand. I also added an additional layer of peanuts to the top of the peanut butter mixture and pressed it in to get a less sweet outcome. My neighbor likes semi sweet chocolate, so I sprinkled chocolate chips (I don't think the chocolate amount in the recipe would do the trick) over the warm bars and covered with foil until they melted like someone else suggested in the reviews. Spread out the melted chocolate, chill and you are done. Thanks for sharing!

Plum Kuchen

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2013
This was delicious. I had one minor problem with the batter being too stiff. I added a half cup+ of sour cream to make it easier to spread in the pan. I didn't have the size of pan rec., so I baked it in a tench inch spring form. I used 5 large plums cut in half (resulting in ten halves). Absolutely yummy and I will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing!

Raisin Bread French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2013
This was so simple and delicious. I did NOT have raisin bread so I used challah and added extra cinnamon and a cup of raisins. I assembled the casserole the night before and refrigerated till the next morning when I was ready to bake. I also loosely tented it with foil when it started to brown too much. This is a great make ahead breakfast for company or the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing.
