Extra-Yummy Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
When I read the recipe and it asked for 1 tablespoon of cinnamon I admit I did a double-take. However, as this is a new recipe that hadn’t been reviewed often I made the recipe exactly as stated. My initial thought was correct, the cinnamon is overpowering. The reason the cinnamon taste was so strong may be that I use a very high quality cinnamon. They were still good, but I would cut back to two teaspoons of cinnamon the next time; and as stated they were light and fluffy.

Honey-Brined Fried Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
Chef John (note the chef title) is able to fry a large chicken breast without it turning black. I, however, know my limitations. I decided to cut the breast into medallions to enhance my chances of having a dish that was edible. Other than that slight change, I made the recipe exactly as instructed. This is a great recipe. The chicken had wonderful flavor was very moist and absolutely perfect served on greens. This is a keeper.

The search is over. I’ve found my go to pancake recipe for old fashion pancakes. It is light and fluffy with good flavor. I made the recipe exactly as stated and wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks for sharing!

Parmesan Garlic Orzo

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
This is a great little side dish that could go with virtually any meal. I used half the amount of garlic because my husband doesn’t like strong garlic flavor, and it was still very good.

Garlic Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Very nice - simple, straight forward flavors. The only change I made was a personal preference, to mince the garlic.

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
Perfect pancakes – light and fluffy. I used half the amount of salt (my usual habit) and added blueberries (another habit) for a great morning breakfast.

Egg Custard

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Easy and straightforward, this makes the traditional egg custard. The baking time was longer than mentioned in the recipe for me, and that may be because of my oven, so be sure to check the consistency before removing it from the oven.

For a quick, easy and tasty snack you can't beat it. It was just the right amount of sweetness for us.

Chinese Sweet and Sour Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Delicious - perfect balance of flavors. I scaled the recipe back and cut the chicken breasts into medallions; therefore I marinated the medallions for 45 minutes and baked it for 30 minutes at 325º. I served the chicken medallions over mixed greens so I used the marinade that had cooked and thickened during the baking process as the salad dressing. I didn’t have fresh ginger so I substituted dried ginger and used cider vinegar. Perfect - can’t get any easier or tastier than this. Added note: I made this again cutting them into medallions only this time I grilled them on the grill with excellent results. It's a fast, easy and tasty dish.

Boardwalk Quality Maple Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
I had made this recipe before it had become “kitchen approved”. I’m so glad it is now published so many cooks have access to this exceptional recipe. I usually don’t care for fudge that is made with chocolate chips and I believe that is because chocolate chips have paraffin, therefore contain less cocoa butter. However, I decided to try this recipe because the submitter is a talented cook. I am so glad I did. The fudge is fabulous. I used Ghiradelli white chocolate chips and added extra walnuts (personal preference). Fast, easy, and delicious –this recipe is a keeper.

Pineapple Picnic Cake

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
If you are looking for an easy and simple recipe that has good flavor, you may want to consider this recipe. I made half of the recipe using one 9” cake pan that I lined with parchment paper. Also, I used an 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple which is slightly under what the recipe requires. It probably would have been a little sweeter with 10 oz. of crushed pineapple but I liked that is wasn’t overly sweet. Also, instead of making half the amount of frosting, I made a quarter of the amount which was plenty for the cake. I also decided to omit the chopped nuts on the topping just for aesthetics. Be sure to line the pan with parchment paper as you will probably have difficulty releasing the cake from the pan.

Oat Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Because I had no oat flour, I followed the editor’s instructions of making the oat flour in the blender. Then I added the rest of the ingredients in the blender and mixed. Fast and easy with little clean-up. I don’t know how excited you can get over waffles, but these were good and a little healthier than our usual waffles. I served it with Blueberry Breakfast Sauce which I highly recommend and whipped cream.

Amazing Lemon Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
If you love lemon, you must try these scones. You will love them. They have the perfect texture and a fabulous lemon flavor. I’m lazy, so I used my food processor to cut the butter into the flour mixture, and then added the liquid mixture through the shoot. Fast and easy, just be sure you don’t over process. This is a keeper.

Simple and Delicious Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
Just as the name implies, it’s simple and delicious. A good standard buttercream frosting that made the perfect amount for 12 cupcakes using a #2 frosting tip. I added an extra ¼ cup of confectioner’s sugar to tighten it up for piping.

Yummy Lemon Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
OMG, this is so good! I made it exactly as written and wouldn’t make any adjustments. The only downside of this delicious lemon coconut loaf is that it won’t last very long in this house, in fact it's almost gone and I just sliced into it. Thanks for sharing Christina!

Quick Baked Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2014
I followed this recipe loosely because I didn’t need quite that much. I cut the chicken into medallions to speed up the cooking process, and brined them for an hour. I didn’t bother adding water to the egg, simply dipped the medallions in the egg, and then the bread crumb mixture. I drizzled a little olive oil in an ovenproof pan, sautéing the chicken breasts for only a minute before flipping them over and then putting it in the oven. It worked out perfectly. The recipe is quick and easy and came out delicious.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I made this to go with pork chops instead of the usual applesauce. My husband loved it. I recomment using tart apples, otherwise it would be too sweet. I would also add just a pinch of salt. I will be making this again.

Hash Brown Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
After reading the reviews, I followed the other reviewers’ suggestions of adding onions, thinly spreading the potatoes onto the waffle griddle, and cooking smaller waffles for five minutes. If you are making smaller waffles as I did, I recommend preheating your oven for 200° to keep them warm while the others are cooking because it does take some time to cook them all.

Chef John's Cottage Fries

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
Because I was grilling a steak, and because I was feeling somewhat lethargic, I just made these on the grill. I mixed the herbs and pepper with the olive oil for approximately an hour hoping to infuse a little more flavor into the oil before adding in the slices of potato, whether that made any difference - who knows. Also, to give myself a head start, I nuked the potato in the microwave for a few minutes to partially cook it before slicing it. I simply tossed the slices in the olive oil mixture before putting it on a well oiled grill. It made a great side dish with the marinated steak. Good call if I may say so myself.
