Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
This was great! I kneaded the dough for 5 minutes, and then let it rise for about 30 min before rolling it out. Pizza crust perfection!

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Mac and Cheese is my ultimate fave comfort food, and this recipe hit the spot! The panko breadcrumbs are a secret I'm glad I learned. Thanks, Chef John! My only variance from the recipe was using a touch of ground mustard in place of Dijon, as I had none on hand. I added approx. 1/2 tsp. of the powdered mustard to the roux right before the addition of milk. This will be my go-to mac and cheese recipe from now on! The reviewer who found the thyme overpowering must have a hyper-sensitive palette, because I found the seasonings to be perfect.

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
Mmmm! These were delish and made the house smell sooo good! I took them to work and they were gone in no time. I got compliments on them from the staff all day. =) When making them without the aid of a bread maker or stand mixer, I have a few key tricks that I don't see anyone had noted. 1.) Proof the yeast in the warm water with 1 tsp. of the sugar from the recipe. 2.) While yeast is doubling, *slowly* melt the butter in the milk over the stovetop on med-low heat. Beat the (room temp) egg in your mixing bowl, and then wisk in your milk/butter before adding yeast mix. The key is not to shock the yeast with any cold ingredients. I did a first rise of the dough (45 min.) before rolling it out and adding the filling, etc. For the second rise of the prepared rolls, I put a hot towel under the pan and covered with plastic wrap and another warm towel. 2 rises may take longer, but it made for *perfect* cinnamon rolls.

Ham and Split Pea Soup Recipe - A Great Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Just made this for dinner, and it's a keeper (literally, too - it made a whole lot of soup! More than the 8 serving stated). I followed the recipe almost exactly, only changing up 2 things. I added 4 cooked and chopped slices of bacon that I had leftover from breaky, and I seasoned with a couple pinches of cumin because I think it adds a little something different. Great recipe!

Marmalade Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
I normally don't review a recipe unless I've followed it to a T, which I didn't here. But I just had to share the changes I made to this already awesome recipe! I can't stop cooking this, it's so yummy and easy! What I did: Used Robertson's Ginger Marmalade, light soy (reduced sodium), added garlic powder, a splash of wine (whatever's handy) and a touch of brown sugar. Before combining in the baking dish I coated the chops in flour and seared them in a pan for 1-2 minutes per side. OMG sooo good!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
So decadent! My family are not mac n' cheese lovers, but this was a hit at my Thanksgiving dinner. The only 2 extra things I added were 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard powder, and 1 tablespoon dehydrated onion. Better than any restaurant mac n' cheese!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I made these to the letter with the only exception of adding crumbled Italian sausage. Even though I drained the sausage quite well, this recipe turned out very, very greasy. I may try again with only the original ingredients, but I'm a little disappointed.

Granola-Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Absolutely *perfect* cookies with a few little changes: Used 3/4 cup of margarine instead of 1 cup butter. Increase flour to 1 3/4 cups (equal portions of flour and granola), and drop by rounded teaspoon without flattening cookies. I also used 1/4 cup of Skor chipits and 3/4 cup of chocolate chips instead of the full cup of chocolate chips. 12 minutes was just the right timing. I will definately be making these again!
