Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
*UPDATE* I made this again tonight omitting the honey and using just 1 teaspoon sugar, doubling the red pepper to 1/4 teaspoon. Pizza Nirvana! In fact, it's so good I couldn't stop sampling it right out of the bowl. This sauce would be fabulous over meatballs, ravioli or any old pasta. I'm going to try it next week with some ground beef as a meat sauce. I may never go back to the long-cooking, made with all fresh vegetables and spices again. This is really good! *ORIGINAL REVIEW*Not horrendous, as some reviewers said. Decent, but far too sweet. I will definitely make again, subbing 1 tsp. sugar instead of the honey. 2 tablespoons is just way too much. This is a good base to tweak, and couldn't be simpler to make.

Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Followed the recipe exactly for use with Oregon Salmon Patties from AR. The sauce was bland and flavorless. Even after tripling the lemon juice and adding dill, it still completely masked the flavors in the fish patties, making the entire dish taste like nothing. The salmon patties were excellent with just a little lemon juice. I will not be making this again.

Make Up Your Mind Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I wasn't sure how to rate these potatoes. LOVE the method, but felt the seasonings just produced a mess, with no individual spices able to shine through. They just didn't sing. We had to stick them under the broiler for a few minutes to hurry them up, which turned out to be a good thing. Crispy outside, soft and tender inside, perfect texture. With fewer seasonings, this method will for sure replace my usual roasted potatoes, which sometimes come out too dry. Thanks for a great new way to roast potatoes!

Dorthy's Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
These were wonderful, just like my mother used to make. After mixing, I only needed to add about 1/4 cup of liquid to make them come out perfect. Also threw in a bit of black pepper and hot sauce, just because. I didn't bread the patties, just fried them right up. They were crispy outside, moist inside. Drizzled a little lemon juice over the finished product and dug right in. Thanks, JONNYLEN, for bringing back a favorite childhood comfort food.

Island-Style Fried Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Very good. Used leftover rice, SPAM lite, no sausage, fresh pineapple and sadly, had no GF Oyster sauce, so subbed GF soy sauce, sriracha and a little honey. Added some peas for a veg. Was a little dry, but I blame the pineapple, no juice. Plus, as the entire SPAM-eating world knows, SPAM has to be cooked crispy. Will for sure make again, after I cook up some GF Oyster sauce. Will be super with that and canned pineapple with juice, plus mixed veg and double the onion! Thanks, Chen, for an easy complete meal. It's a winner, and so easy to tweak to taste.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I've tried many deviled egg recipes, but my family always says my own are better, so here they are. If you like your deviled eggs mild like egg salad, look elsewhere. These eggs bite back!

Bacon Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
This was not a hit. Tasted like eggs with Ranch dressing and bacon. Much too bland. My DH asked "Where's the 'Devil'"? Deviled eggs should have some 'bite'. 2 stars for ease and it might please someone who thinks deviled eggs are too sharp tasting.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
**Update** I've been making this for over a year now and have found new ways to use it. For corn muffins, don't use paper liners. Instead, use cooking spray and be generous. Then pour the batter right in. Your muffins will have a nice crisp browned crust. Yum! I also jazz the muffins by adding leftover pulled pork or (in mini-muffins) bits of hot dogs. The pulled pork muffins are amazing, thanks Chef John! Keep mustard on hand for dipping mini corn dog muffins, Kids gobble them up. Both are major winners! ** Original review - Made this tonight, subbing a combo of GF baking mix and GF bread flour for the AP flour. Everything else per recipe. Whole family loved it. DH loves Marie Callendar cornbread and said this is one I need to make again. BTW - I'm the only one who eats gluten free, the rest of the pack, DH, DS, DDIL and grands are all wheat-eaters. Even the 2 yr-old loved it. A definite winner. Thank you!

Gluten Free Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
When fresh out of the oven, DH complained the loaf was too light, although moist, but just not what banana bread should be. Next day, it was perfect. Seriously banana bread perfect. I've no idea why, but there it is. Next time I'll try just the 2 cups GF flour as originally called-for.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
As written, it's just a tiny bit too sweet for my family, but with the addition of another 1/4 tsp. salt it was perfect; DH raved about it. So, b/c salt is a personal preference, this gets 5 stars, because this is SO easy and VERY VERY close to KFC, his favorite slaw.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Do not, do not, do not use DIET Dr. Pepper. I did, and while the tenderloin was certainly pull-apart tender, there was zero flavor imparted to it from the soda. Might as well have used water. I'm trying to fix it now, with a little Cholula and some brown sugar. If that doesn't give it some kick, I'll just be sure to use plenty of sauce. I'll update this review after. But still, 4 stars because it's my bad for not using a sugared soft drink. ****** UPDATE: I wrapped the pork, juice and all, in foil overnight. Today, it was very moist and had just a hint of sweet from the brown sugar. So I went ahead and sauced it, reheated on the stove, and served it. We all loved it, so it now gets 5 stars. So easy, so good. I'll be making this again with a pork loin to save $ and the root beer as the recipe states, plus a dash of liquid smoke, just because. If I'd followed the recipe exactly it would still be 5 stars.

Dad's Hamburger Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Too bland, even though I added 4 cloves, a pinch of red pepper flakes and used all the onion in while cutting the meat and milk in half. It still required a lot of Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy and salt. However, my 22-yr-old nephew liked it, so 3 stars. Still, I won't make it again.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Very simple to make. Made per instructions and found the flavor much too strong. So I doubled the tomato sauce. Still had way too much chili powder and completely overpowered the chicken enchiladas I made with it. Because it's so easy I'll try again using only 1-2 tbs chili powder. Note: I think it would work very well to season meat for tacos, perhaps 1/4 cup sauce for a pound of meat, more if using beef.

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
The best way to make this salad sing is to make the vinaigrette separately; whisk vinegar, basil, salt/pepper, then slowly whisk in oil, THEN pour over the salad. The dressing holds together better, and all the vinegar droplets get the benefit of the spices, making sure every bite is well seasoned. It's about the spiced vinegar being suspended in the oil. Just my 2 cents, but it makes a taste difference. I make a similar salad, but use green onions. And lemon in the vinaigrette. Otherwise, it's the same, and VERY tasty, especially if you dress it about 15 minutes before serving to let the flavors do their thing.

Spicy Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
I always cut chicken breasts in half so they're thinner, and this recipe rewarded that, because with just 2 hours marinating the flavors really came through. I'm so tired of chicken marinades that don't really permeate the meat, but not here. The lime, garlic and pepper were very present. Sadly, the pepper flakes only ended up on half of my piece. Next time I'll use cayenne or hot sauce to make sure I get an even coating of spice. I served it with rice pilaf and grilled pineapple spears and was told to "Make this again!" We loved it! ****Update***** Made this for Mom and she only let put in a dash or two of hot sauce, afraid of too much heat. It was much worse for the change, tasting like lime chicken, with not much else going on. Do not omit or reduce the pepper flake or sauce, it's really needed to make this dish shine.
