Sherry Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
We loved this chicken! I halved it (just two of us), and I used sherry rather than cream sherry---otherwise all the same. This is easy, delicious, and definitely a repeater! Thanks for this recipe!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
I cannot possibly believe that I have never reviewed this recipe---one that I have made on at least a dozen occasions and even wrote a blog about! Definitely a 5 star cookie! My family and friends all love them! Love this recipe--as written!

Chef John's Turkey Burger

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
I am deferring this rating to my hubby who gave it a 5! He said this was really tasty, and he only wanted it as a patty with melted cheese for his dinner tonight. He kept saying that it had a lot of different flavors, and he really liked that about it. I would definitely make this again but as a sandwich the next time! Thanks, Chef!

Sparkling Sex on the Beach

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
To me this is a brunch-type drink for people who don't really want very much alcohol. I used Chambord and the rest of the ingredients called for. I think this drink definitely has its place in the repertoire of brunch drinks, but then I usually don't have those! This is a perfect drink to recommend to others!

Amaretto Sauce for Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
I'm reviewing this for my hubby who loves cooked carrots. He thought this was outstanding. I cut the recipe down to serve two, and I still had an awfully lot of the sauce left over. I'd think it could be cut almost in half and still offer you the great flavor that goes with it. He thanks you for a nice vegetable dish, BOJIBLUE!

Quick and Easy Parmesan Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
This is an easy, tasty way to get a side dish ready in minutes---at least for me, since I have these ingredients on hand all the time. Thank you!

Rocket and Parma Ham Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
This dressing is pretty much how I fix my salads every night, though I do use lemon olive oil. I think my only problem with this is that I would like to have a little more crunch to the salad with the addition of other types of greens and maybe a vegetable or two. There is a wonderful bite when you roll up a piece of the meat with the perfect amount of arugula! I would not have thought of this combo before now, but it is something I will do again. Thank you, Vikil!

Potato and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
We thought this was a very tasty side dish, easily capable of becoming a main dish with the addition of meat. I scaled down this recipe by two-thirds for just the two of us, and we still have some left over. Even though it's rich, you don't eat that much of it! I was surprised at the few ingredients that led up to such a tasty dish! Thanks!

The Last Caesar Salad Recipe You'll Ever Need

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
This is indeed a very fine recipe for Caesar dressing. I decided to make only half the recipe so this won't last long for us, but when I have company over the next time, I'll be making it again! I used 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste rather than the fillet but otherwise followed the recipe exactly (1/2 teaspoon paste=1 anchovy fillet). I chopped up a little lettuce to stage a photo for this, thinking that I'd scrape off the dressing and save the salad for dinner. Silly! I ate that salad in no time flat! I know my hubby will love this, too! Thanks for a great recipe!

Mustard Pork Garnish

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
I made this to go with Southern Pork Tenderloin on this site because it was recommended there. I made this using only half of the cayenne because of personal preferences, and it was plenty hot enough. My problem with this is that I wanted the flavor to be more complex----the cayenne itself did not do that for me. I love the idea of the mustard, but I would maybe try either adding something like ginger to the sauce or use Sambal Oelek for the heat. I'll try it again with modifications. It would certainly be a good thing to have something like this to dip the pork recipe into! Thanks for leading us in this direction. I would not have thought of that on my own.

Southern Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
I would have given this 4 stars, but my hubby and daughter gave it 5! So 5 it is. I cut back on the panko to just under one half, and I did use it all. I salted and peppered the pork before I put the panko mixture on. For the panko I must say that I prefer the brands that come in the Asian aisle of the store rather than the domestic ones. I was also surprised how well the coating stayed on the meat without anything to help it adhere. I'll have to try that with other cuts of meat and chicken when I do similar things. I don't have any idea how I could use a thermometer to tell if the meat was done because it's so thin! I just use my best judgment! It certainly doesn't take long! Remember that pork should NOT be overcooked. I will maybe not make the mustard sauce the way it's recommended here. See that recipe for my thoughts on that. I'll make this again for sure!

Open Faced Egg Sandwiches with Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
I LOVE this sandwich! Of course, with the garlic and mayo as the base, how couldn't it be yummy? I had this for a late breakfast this morning, and I may just have to make another one for lunch. I scaled this down to one sandwich leaving the dressing for the arugula for two. This was very yummy!

Wild Rocket (Arugula) and Parmesan Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Be sure to make this dressing several hours before mixing it with the arugula. I found it much better after it sat for a while! I also think that there is not enough dressing for this amount of greens, so at least double it. I also missed some salt in the directions. I dearly love both arugula and cilantro, so for me this is a beautiful salad. The dressing is all that needs a few tweaks! Thanks for this dish!

Avon's Award Winning Apple Cake w/ Hot Buttered Rum Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Absolutely no question as to why you won the contest, Avon! This was so yummy! I took this cake to a small dinner party, and somehow I got rooked into leaving half the cake and ALL that delicious sauce with the hostess! We put a little vanilla ice cream over warm cake with that sauce! So so very yummy! I think next time I'll put it into two 8x8 pans so there are more edges, too! I used three medium-sized Gala apples, slicing them how it shows on the AR videos here to core and then slice them (a new trick I learned by watching a video here). Very yummy! Thanks, Avon, for a wonderfully yummy cake!

Mushroom Honey Lager Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I made this recipe according to the directions, and even though we love each and every ingredient, they just didn't seem to go together very well. Maybe just leaving out the honey would have made it better. The beer flavor doesn't really add much for us. It smelled yummy while cooking this, so I had high expectations for the results. Maybe someone can come up with a better way to remedy my review!

Mushroom Cream Sauce With Shallots

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
We thought this tasted outstanding! I should give this fewer stars because of the fact that I think the flour:cream ratio is off. When I put the flour into the cream, it immediately made a very thick paste. I think maybe there is a typo in the amount of flour, and I would start with half a teaspoon and work up. I didn't want my rating to deter anyone from trying this! I put this with Easy Crispy Baked Chicken from this site, and we had a marvelous dinner! Thank you!

Easy Crispy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I made this according to the recipe with the exception of using butter rather than margarine and using just a little more of the garlic powder, and we thought this was very tasty! It was easy, and the coating didn't fall off! The timing was right on! I used one package of Costco chicken breasts and cut the recipe in half, and it was perfect. We enjoyed our dinner very much! Thanks for this recipe!

Boiled Water

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
I was totally confused as to how large the bubbles should be before removing the pot from the heat. The submitter of this recipe then states it can be added to ramen? How is that done? Couldn't Seth have included a link to that recipe? Now I have no idea what to do with my water! Guess I'll just have to chalk this one up!

Italian Sausage Market Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
I'm not sure this will take over our favorite recipe for meatloaf, but it certainly is a good one. I did not use a typical chili sauce but rather a Trader Joe's roasted tomatillo yellow chili salsa. I am not sure I used all the spinach called for, either. It took quite a bit longer for it to get done--probably because the meat was cold from the fridge--and I did drain fat from the loaf as it cooked from time to time. Thanks for a nice change of pace!

Aunt Ro's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
I must admit that I did tweak this recipe a bit! But it was all yummy! I traded out the ground beef for Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage, and I traded out the butter beans for white beans. Because the baked beans I used already had brown sugar in them, I just sprinkled a little over the top when I was heating up the batch. I probably went a little short on the catsup and bbq sauce. But still, really, this is in the realm of this recipe! I would really suggest that Italian sausage is a GREAT way to tweak this recipe! In fact, this recipe just calls for tweaking however you like your beans! We won't ever buy Honeybaked's baked beans again because they are too sweet for us. This was really really good! Thanks, Aunt Ro!
