Chef John's Caramel Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
Really good! I omitted the water after a first try because it's a lot easier to reduce the sauce. I like to use Thai chili sauce instead of Jalapenos because I always have it on hand, that way I can really slam it together if I get the urge.

Valentine Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
You do not cook a proper pizza at 400 degrees! Turn your oven all the way up and adjust time appropriately.

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
If you really want a good grilled sandwich you need to brown the inside of the bread first. Then assemble and cook the outside.

Green Chicken Enchilada

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
You need to shred the chicken after you cook it, then recook in oil, garlic, hot sauce. You can make it the day before. You're going to neeed some onions and black olives. Don't make gringo food.

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I used half the butter and it still came out perfect. It was a little bland for my taste, even though I upped the spices. I gave it 5 stars because the cooking method is excellent and I'm sure I can work out the seasoning issue.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Didn't have any shortening so I used bacon fat, no sugar so I used molases, in a hurry so I used cold water, no yeast....used baking powder, only had a hard boiled egg, tried some garlic salt, no AP flour so I had to use corn meal. Didn't come out anything like the picture.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
You do not cook a pizza properly at 350 degrees! Turn your oven all the way up and watch your pie closely, It'll take about 8 min. depending on your oven. Commercial ovens run from 600-1000 degrees! Take it out when the crust and topping is the way you like it.

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
Bread flour at 550 degrees 8-10 min watch it close. Go to a pizza parlor and watch them make pizzas all day, then tell me if they ever had to pre-bake a crust. No! No! No! That's because they know how to make a dang pizza! Get your oven hot. All the way hot! Assemble it quickly and slam it in there. Look at the crust just like they do, and yank it out when it's just the way you want it!

Salmon Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I make a similar dish often. I like adding the tomatoes last, uncooked, when using a white sauce. You can also use a little smoked salmon or bacon instead of filets, don't use too much or you'll overpower the sauce.

T Bird's Beef Jerky

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
I only gave it 3 stars. I substituted yogurt and non-fat mayonaise for the other ingredients and cooked it at 550 for 2 hrs becuase I was hungry. Tasted horrible and was overdone. I think I'll stick with slim-jims. [just kidding] ha ha!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This is a good standard recipe. Turn your oven all the way up! Mine goes to 550 degrees, that's the proper way to cook a pizza.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I can't believe some people can't make this sauce! There's only 3 ingredients! 4 if you count the noodles. Good grief, If it's too thick, add some cream. If it's too bland, add some spice. It's just a base. If you can't make something like this, you have no business cooking. I pity your family. I added garlic, a little bacon, removed from heat, then a little fresh tomato. Excellent.

Shrimp Francesca

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
My shrimp were from the Gulf area so I omitted the butter. I found them still a bit oily but everyone gobbled them up.

Pizza Dough

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
This is a standard recipe that is foolproof and good. I will add that commercial pizzarias use oven temperatures between 600-1000 degrees F, my oven tops out at 550 degrees and that's what I use. Experiment to find what works for you but these recipes that use 350 are all wrong.

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
Excellent recipe and easy to remember so I can slam a pizza together in no time. I will only say that pizzas should be cooked on high heat. No professional would ever cook at 375 so I follow their lead. I cook at 550 on the bottom rack. Do not let sauce etc. sit on the pizza- cook immediately. I've never had a soggy crust, just watch it closly and when the underside almost starts to burn yank it out and it will be perfect. I happen to use a perforated pan but a stone is probably even better

Cooky Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
Warning! Do not make these cookies if you are on a diet. Addiction risk! Some of the best cookies I have ever eaten. Melt in your mouth. I only omitted the nuts - don't like 'em.

The Best Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
I'm always amazed when someone recommends cooking a pizza at 375 degrees. This is why you are having to cook the crust twice. Try at least 450. Commercial restaurants are still higher. I saw a program on "Worlds best pizza from Naples" where their oven was 1000 degrees and it took 90 seconds to fully cook the pie!
