Sesame Tempura Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Great alternative to fries! Does take dedicated time and space, unless you have a small deep fat fryer, but very good (and one of those "help me do it" dishes that cooking company can enjoy doing).

Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
Excellent and simple, if you don't mind frying - and I can not imagine that a baked version would turn out tasting as good! Even Mr. "I hate yardbird" loved it. Used flash-frozen chicken filets, thawed them, and basically butterflied them in cutting a pocket because they were pretty skinny filets. Filled the "pocket" with a seeded, intact half of a jalapeno instead of mincing the pepper, and couple TBS of the cheese mix. Held them together with toothpicks, and used a pan that can be soaked clean! The chix was preseasoned (roasted garlic); the cream cheese was a combo of what I had - whipped cr ch and onion/chive, with shredded cheddar/monterey jack. I did pre-cook the peppers in the microwave after cutting/seeding - one minute zap.

Iowa Pork Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Excellent gravy-smothered meal! Browned in garlic-infused olive oil (big fan), set meat aside and cooked fresh sliced mushrooms and chopped onion in the pan for 5-6 minutes, added a glug of brandy (2 to 3 TBS) and set on fire. Stirred in chicken broth in place of water, soup, dry onion soup mix and Worchestershire. Added meat and covered pan with alum foil, stuck in oven for an hour and a half. Simple, tasty, comforting - and flambe!

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
I came on line to post a ribs recipe we learned from a Californian restauranteur - saw Lloyd's recipe and tried it. Will never go back! THe chef's recipe entails many more steps, and while a different flavor, was no better. I will try to throw in a TBS or so of whole-seed pickling spice during the boiling step, however - then use Sweet Baby Ray's original. Bet that will bring the taste close, too!

Pasta with Scallops, Zucchini, and Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
My husband turns his nose up at any "odd" ingredient in pasta, but he loved this dish made with shrimp instead of scallops. Used fire roasted tomatoes and feta in addition to the parmesan(mixing recipes found on this site - makes it hard to decide which to review, but the results were wonderful.)

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
Wonderful - doubled the liquids for the sauce as suggested by others, used a little lemon butter under the breast skin, cooked just two of them in a cast iron skillet. A note - the garlic cloves should be peeled, and they cook down into a sweet mild flavor. If you really like garlic, use garlic infused olive oil!

Lobster Thermidor Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Oops, can't edit the recipe submission and I left out a key ingredient: seafood seasoning (Old Bay, or Todd's Crabby Dirt). ADD 1/2 tsp to the sauce before adding the cheese!

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Left out the pimentos and added a dash of fresh nutmeg. I'll thicken the sauce with a roux next time, but this was magnificent! We're big fans of skin-on fried chicken, but this made the boneless/skinless breasts a real treat. Great with pasta.

Herbed Dumplings

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I love this recipe - although the dumplings always come out pinkish in color when cooked in chicken broth, the flavor is worth it. Salt, herbs... you've always got to adjust them to taste, and at a full tsp, we actually liked them... but when I make these for guests, I cut it down to the 1/4 to 1/2 that all agree is the right amount! The dumplings seem to come out best if the "batter" is allowed to sit for a half hour or so, and the NO PEEKING WHILE COOKING rule should be followed.
