Dry Buttermilk Ranch Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
I love this recipe. Was trying to find a store bought packet with no MSG but it's nearly impossible and still doesn't have as good a flavor as this one. It costs a little bit to buy all of the spices for the first time you use it but the investment is well worth the money. I use it primarily with the slow cooker buffalo chicken recipe on this site and it makes for a winning combo.

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
Color me impressed. This was my first effort at Indian food and it was SOOOOO delicious. I made the recipe exactly as directed with the exception of switching out the heavy cream for low fat Kefir. Other than not thickening up too well with the substitution of the Kefir, I thought that it was absolutely delicious. I added some corn starch at the end to help thicken it. It definitely was spicy but the bite was great. About what you would get if you went to a restaurant and ordered somewhere between a medium and a hot spicy level. Enough to make you know that you had something spicy but not so much that your mouth burns for an hour after it. I did put the whole thing in the crock pot and let it simmer for an hour or two once I added the chicken just to let the flavors meld. Served it over lime and cilantro rice and with the Chickpea Curry recipe by Aminah at this site. Was the best meal ever. No need to go out for Indian any more if I can just learn how to make naan.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
This was great! I used canned chick peas and included the water from the can in the recipe. I may use veggie or chicken broth next time. Used 1 teaspoon of cinnamon as I did not have the sticks. Cut the cloves down to 4 as I don't really like them and cut the cayenne pepper to 1/2 teaspoon because I'm a wimp. I didn't use quite as much cilantro and used dried as that was all I had on hand. The flavor that resulted was wonderful meld of a sweet cinnamon start with a peppery bite at the end. My husband, who specifically hates chick peas, was savoring these one by one. I served it with the Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala and chipotle lime rice here on the site. Possibly the best dinner that I have ever made.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
So easy! Have only used ground turkey with 7% fat, made the rest of the recipe as called for and they taste great. May add a few more spices to liven them up even more next time but still wonderful as is.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
Both my husband and I thought it was great. I made it in the crock pot (due to laziness). I have a crock pot that will let you saute things, so I sauteed the garlic, onion, oil and curry for a bit, then added the rest of the ingredients and cooked it covered on low for a few hours. I cheated and used a little corn starch to thicken it up and it was wonderful over some couscous with peas on the side. Will definitely make again.

Roasted Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
Easy and delicious. Ended up cooking it a little longer than 30 minutes, maybe about 40 or so.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
So simple and yet so delicious. Did take it all the way up to 300 degrees while stirring the whole time and it didn't separate and tasted wonderful.

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
Wow! Absolutely wonderful. Very time intensive for a mac and cheese recipe but the results were great. MUCH better straight out of the oven than the next day though (although that is true with all mac and cheese I think). I could have skipped the bread crumbs and still liked it.

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
Loved it. Made it as written for the first time and it was great although a little soupy. I did make it using organic fire roasted tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes, which really added to the flavor. Next couple of times cut the water down to 1/4 cup (combined with a little chicken bullion) and added a can of pinto beans. Also tossed in a green pepper and a little bit of fresh jalapeno. Is absolutely wonderful and can't tell the difference from regular chili. Will be my new go-to recipe for chili. My husband, who is a rather discerning chili fan, loves it as well.

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Reviewed: May 21, 2014
I followed the recipe as it was written exactly and thought it was only so-so. Edible and reasonable but definitely not buffalo flavored and a little boring despite the super-heavy spice content. Will not make again. Definitely do not think that you need both the olive oil and the butter to brown the chicken. One or the other would have been fine.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
Holy cow, this was awesome! Made some minor changes - used chicken thighs instead of breast and only used about half the bottle of sauce. I did use the ranch dressing mix recipe from this site instead of the pre-packaged ranch. I used Wing It sauce the times I made it with great results. I made it twice in 3 days it was so good.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
As per previous recommendations, I used a cheaper cut of pork (Publix euphemistically refers to it as the 'Picnic Cut') and cooked it with beef broth. I did add a cup of coffee that is mentioned in a separate recipe and it was great! Deboned the pork, shredded it, put it in the fridge overnight with some BBQ sauce then reheated the next day. AWESOME!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I made this sauce exactly as directed and it was WONDERFUL! I made pulled pork in my crock pot using a beef broth and coffee mixture, put the sauce over the pork when it was done, tossed it in the fridge overnight and then reheated it the next day. I have never gotten so many compliments on a recipe before! Better than any restaurant pulled pork.

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Pretty good. I used organic brown sugar which added a nice taste. I did think that there was too much topping and would add more apples to it the next time. Also needs to cook a little longer than recommended in the recipe in order for the apples to be soft. But it still tastes good with crunchy apples.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
Pretty good stuff! I liked how this turned out with the potatoes and the sausage (kind of hesitant on the whole sausage thing at the beginning). I did make a few alterations: 1) I used only 8c of broth/water 2) 4 of the 8 cups were chicken broth 3) I used fresh garlic paste instead of powder 4) I left half of the peas out until a few hours into the cooking. Overall this was a pretty darn good recipe. It took a hour or so longer to cook than everyone was saying, but that might have been my slow cooker's fault. Who knows. Only think I would do different next time is actually to add all of the peas at the beginning. I don't think that I like that much substance to them there at the end.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
Holy cow, these are the best thing since sliced bread! I am a true fan of the peanut butter cookie and have tried many recipes but this one tops them all. I made them just as instructed but used creamy instead of crunchy peanut butter (call me a purist) and they turned out wonderfully. I think I ate half of the batch myself. Additionally, I made some more another time and froze half of the dough. One month later I thawed it and baked them and they were just as good as the first time.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
Pretty good but not truly wonderful...yet. Super easy and overall fairly good. About 1/3 of the way through baking the batch I decided they were missing something so I tossed in about 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. of cream of tartar and added another 1/2 tsp. of vanilla. The rest of the batch was awesome. Overall a good recipe, just needed a little something extra.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
Absolutely amazing! I have never had better lasagna--even at a restaurant. I modified it slightly in that I used medium Italian sausage and didn't let the sauce simmer for quite as long as recommended. I also doubled the Parmesan cheese. The motto in my family is 'there's no such thing as too much cheese'. My brother-in-law, who refuses to eat leftovers ate it three days in a row he loved it so much. I made the sauce by itself later on just to go over pasta and made a few changes. I left out the meat entirely as well as one can of tomato paste and I added 1/2-3/4 cup of water to thin it out. It came out wonderfully even though I did not simmer it. I let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. I think that I will cut down on the fennel if I make it as pasta sauce again as the taste was a bit too strong. Overall, a wonderful, wonderful recipe.

Dee's Health Bread

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
WOW!! This bread is great! I just started making bread a few weeks ago and this one is easy and great tasting. I scaled the recipe down to 18 servings and as recommended by another reviewer, I used only whole wheat flour and added 1T of wheat gluten. Additionally I used organic coconut oil instead of the vegetable oil and only used egg whites instead of the whole egg. The resulting bread is soft, fluffy and tastes great. I plan on continuing to make this bread as my staple one instead of buying from the store. Thanks much Dee!
