French Baguettes

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2014
My oldest just returned from France as a French exchange student. She said that they had baguette with lunch and dinner everyday. She said she even saw a baguette vending machine! So, I new I wanted to find a baguette recipe that would be easy. This recipe is simple, easy and my family loves the results. The baguettes turn out soft on the inside and lightly crusty on the outside. I also love that the ingredient list is so simple. No dough enhancers, fat, and less sugar than my sandwich bread that I make. I love using my bread maker for this. I put the ingredients in the pan and put the timer on depending on how my day is looking. The bread machine does all the work. I just roll out the dough and bake it. Voila! Fresh soft delicious baguettes.

Bacon Ranch Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
These were fantastic. They had such a great flavor to them and were incredibly juicy. I served them at a dinner party and guests raved about them. They were also incredibly easy to make. Definitely will make them again.

Hungarian Goulash I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
This was a great recipe. It had such a unique sweet, spicy, and tanginess to it. It probably would have been a totally different dish if I had used Hungarian Paprika and I finally got some and will try this recipe again.

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
While this was super easy to put together, the croutons and cheese got way too dark even though I followed the baking directions. It also was a little dry and I used 28oz of marinara sauce. But with those exceptions it was tasty and I will definitely try it again and maybe do a few tweaks (i.e. cover with foil until last 15 minutes, then brown croutons and melt cheese) to see if I can get better results.

Garlic-Ginger Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2013
This wing sauce is a great way to add variety to a get together. I hosted a get together where I featured several different chicken wing recipes and beside the standard buffalo style this was the next sauce that was raved about. It has a sweet and savory flavor that is completely different than the tang of the buffalo style. I really recommend trying this one.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2013
This was so easy and I enjoy knowing exactly what is in the food I am eating or serving. I made this recipe for a get together of my husband's friends and they all commented on how great the chicken wings turned out with this sauce. I will definitely use this again and again.

Chef John's Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2013
I truly enjoyed the learning opportunity that this recipe provided. I watched the accompanying video to make sure that I followed the cutting directions correctly. I have a good size family and so I doubled the recipe. I have never gone from whole chicken to fried chicken pieces. Unfortunately, I was missing a couple of ingredients that I feel would have made a big difference. I thought I had buttermilk but didn't and instead had to substitute milk with vinegar added 10 minutes before to curdle it for the soak. I also only had skim milk and I feel that the lack of milk fat made a difference in the final product as well. I also did not have sage and I feel that having the sage would have made for a more robust flavor. I also found that for me, when I tried to keep the oil at 350 degrees and cooked it for the recommended amount of time, those pieces ended up overcooked and too dark. But in the end, even with those missing ingredients this chicken was still FAR superior to anything that can be purchased at a chain restaurant or grocery store. It was delicious, fresh tasting, and full of chicken flavor not salt. My family really enjoyed it and now we are probably spoiled for any other kind of fried chicken. :)

Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
Just made this recipe for my lunch and even though I was missing 2 ingredients (apple and lime juice) it was still a delicious, sweet and savory combination tasting chicken salad that had a wonderful crunch from the pecans. I put it on a hearty organic whole wheat bread with a strong nutty flavor and added some crisp lettuce to make a fantastic chicken salad sandwich. I will definitely keep this as a go to when I have leftover Costco roasted chicken.

Fish Tacos

A little time consuming to make but full of fresh popping flavor! I made this for my family and they loved it. They had never had fish tacos before and this became an instant favorite.

Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
These chicken nuggets turned out great. They had a wonderful complex flavor that wasn't overpowering but gave them that special something that set them apart from frozen processed chicken nuggets. My husband hates chicken nuggets, but took these as left overs to work the next day! More time consuming then dumping them out of the plastic bag, but well worth the time.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
This is a fantastic recipe as is or as a starting point to try lots of variation. I use broccoli and carrot shred coleslaw for my family and they love it. In the summer with fried chicken or pulled pork sandwhiches and fresh lemonade or peach iced tea, this slaw is perfect!

Chef John's Classic Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly and this was a huge hit with me and my family. It was tender, full of warm deep flavor and just down right delicious. I will definitely make this again and I think it is safe to say that it will work pretty well with most cuts of beef due to the long simmer period. If the meat isn't quite tender yet, then let it simmer a little more and it will be. DELICIOUS!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
This recipe is fantastic! I also substituted applesauce for oil and used two cans of pumpkin instead of measuring out 3 cups, and the bread turned out wonderfully moist and delicious. I added chocolate chips, flaxseed meal, and I used a combination of whole wheat and all purpose flour to give it a little more fiber. Even with those changes the bread was extremely moist and wonderful not to mention how good it smells while it is baking. My family walked in the door and all exclaimed how delicious it smelled. With the variations that I made my cook time was 75 minutes, but the bread turned out perfect. I would suggest just making the 3 loaves from the recipe because they get eaten quickly!

Peanut Butter Banana Flax Seed Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Tried this recipe this week and it was fantastic. The only change I made was substituting chocolate chips for dates and whole wheat flour for all purpose. As one reviewer said, these are not the fluffy, airy cupcake style muffins. Our family does not like those style muffins. These are dense, rich and incredibly delicious.

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
Usin this recipe and after making the modifications suggested by Flannery, I have finally been able to make a soft fluffy loaf of whole wheat bread from my breadmachine. I was just about ready to send my bread machine back. I have made over 10 loaves of bread and none of them have turned out as wonderful as this loaf! I am thrilled that I was finally able to produce a loaf of whole wheat bread that is just stunning! Thank you for the original recipe and thank you to Flannery for the modifications! My breadmachine will be able to stay in our home.
