Chef John's Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Succulent and chicken breast are seldom found in the same sentence, but you can find them together here in this delightfully simple recipe, composed of a few common ingredients. Chef John really shows off the flavor of chicken and mushrooms. Yes, you may add more things, like wine, or aromatics, but the more additions, the more complications and subbing, and then the tweaking begins! I chose not to view the video beforehand, just to check out the instructions and the cooking times. I went on the low side of the recommended times, and the chicken came out perfectly, with rich, delicious mushrooms. We really enjoyed our Sunday chicken today!

Easy Grilled Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
What a great idea for grilling! Slicing the zucchini this way keeps them from slipping between the grill racks. Very fast, very easy! I used Cavender's Greek Seasoning. Thanks for the idea!

Better Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
This is a great muffin for breakfast, filled with lots of fruit and fiber. I followed the recipe exactly, and for me, 3/4 pound of shredded carrots yielded 2 1/2 cups. I loved the tangy brightness of the dried cranberries. There are lots of variations of this recipe, so it's easy to use what you have!

Parchment Baked Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
Don't be afraid to bake salmon in parchment. It's a great method for keeping your expensive fish from drying out if it's a minute or two too long in the oven. The hardest thing to do is to judge when it's done, due to the variations in size of filets. Mine were a little more than 1 inch thick in the largest part, and alas, 20 minutes was a tad too long. They were still edible, and we enjoyed the combination of flavors. Thanks for the idea!

Sausage, Potato and Kale Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I subbed hot turkey Italian sausage, omitted the pepper flakes, and used Yukon gold potatoes. These were my only alterations from the recipe. As far as the directions go, my potatoes were done in 15 minutes, and I did not add any milk or half and half until the end of the cooking, when I allowed them to heat through, but not boil. This has an amazing aroma as it cooks, and it is a hearty, satisfying soup. Do not be concerned by the lack of added salt, because the broth and sausage are salty enough to flavor the whole batch. DH and DS approved!

Turkey and Bacon Panini with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Really liked this, except I used only one chipotle pepper in the mayonnaise. We found it spicy enough for us, that way. Other than that, I made the recipe as stated. If you don't have focaccia, I think any sliced, substantial bread would work. I'm happy to find another way to make panini! Thanks!

Slow Cooker Santa Fe Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
I so wanted to like this, because it was easy. However, it was a little bland for us, even after I pumped it up some with 1 tsp. ground cumin, 1/2 tsp. Penzey's Bold Taco Seasoning, and 1/2 tsp. chili powder. The blsl chicken was completely done after 2 1/2 hours, too. I shredded the chicken and added it back to the pot when I added the cream cheese.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
This was an excellent way to prepare chicken and potatoes in one pan! After reading some of the reviews, here is what I decided to do, based on our preferences. First, I placed the prepped red potatoes in a large bowl, and added a medium onion, vertically sliced. Next, I sprinkled about 3 Tbs. of chopped fresh rosemary and 2 Tbs. fresh chopped parsley over the potatoes and onion. In a small bowl, I combined 1/4 c. E.V.O., several grinds of black pepper, about 1 1/2 tsp. sea salt, and 2 crushed cloves of garlic. I let this sit while I prepared the chicken. I cut off all visible fat, rinsed and patted dry, but left most of the skin intact. Next I placed a 4" sprig of rosemary beneath the chicken skin, and added a little sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. I combined the potato combo and the olive oil mixture and placed them on a I lightly oiled jelly roll pan. I placed the chicken pieces, skin side up, among the vegetables and herbs, careful to keep everything in one layer. 1 hour at 375, and everything was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
I made this with half sweet turkey sausage and half hot turkey sausage. I wondered about the flavor combination of turkey sausage and beef broth, but the flavors came together really well in the last 5 minutes. Please be sure to let the soup sit off the heat after the spinach goes in--that's when the flavors meld and the soup flavors really bloom. We don't like mushy zucchini, so I cut mine into 1 inch pieces. Really good, satisfying soup.

Best Ever Cilantro Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
This zippy little salsa gets quite a punch from fresh garlic! I used about half the amount specified in the recipe, and we were quite satisfied. Bright, refreshing flavors and beautiful colors make this salsa a great accompaniment to seafood or chicken. Thanks for the idea!

Sausage and Kale Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
Wow, this was great soup! Only two tweaks: I used hot Italian turkey sausage and cremini mushrooms. Everything else stayed the same. The soup had great flavor from the sausage, and just enough heat to make the soup taste well-seasoned. Rich and satisfying on its own for lunch, or for dinner with a salad and some crusty bread, this recipe is a keeper!

Grandma's Peach French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
This was delicious! I used 4 and 1/2 c. of fresh sliced peaches instead of the canned, and other than that, I followed the recipe. I added 5 minutes to the baking time, since I was using fresh peaches. The fresh peaches really made it taste almost like a peach cobbler. Yum, yum! I will be making this again, especially due to the convenience of assembly the night before. Great for guests!

Dad's Asian Slaw

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
I followed Peg's advice and used Newman's Own Lowfat Sesame Ginger dressing, but I used only 1/2 c. and 1/4 c. sugar. These were the only changes I made to the recipe. The whole family loved this sweet, crunchy salad. Next time, I will reduce the dressing down to 3/8 c. and the sugar down to 2 Tbs., and I will crumble the noodles over the top of each serving. That way, if there are any leftovers, the noodles won't be soggy. Way better if they are crunchy!

Sopapilla Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Oh, my goodness, now I understand...this dessert is fabulous! Deliciously rich, the temptation is to eat more than one serving! I made the recipe exactly as stated. I must admit, I wondered what it would be like to add some apple pie filling before the top layer, but I will experiment another time. Great recipe! Thanks for the idea!

Grilled Chicken Over Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Great idea! I will make this again. I used 1 tsp. smoked paprika in place of the cayenne, and I baked boneless, skinless breasts at 350 for 35 minutes with the seasonings (It was raining!). Loved the spinach/fresh mushroom combination, but next time I will double the spinach. One 10 oz. package only makes 2 servings in our family. I started the mushrooms first in the olive oil, then tossed in the onions. Garlic burns so quickly, I put it in right before the spinach so it would cook but not burn.

Easy Broccoli Slaw Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
This is a great salad, and another way to sneak some broccoli into your family. A variation on other ramen salads made with cabbage, it is sweet, crunchy and delicious. I rated 4 stars, because I cut the dressing in half and only used one package of noodles. This amount of dressing still give ample liquid to the salad. Even cutting it in half, it seems a tiny bit oily to me, so I will cut the oil back to equal the vinegar next time. Thanks for the idea!

Lemon Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
I took a look at this recipe, and decided to try it, since we love oven baked asparagus. However, for 2 people, 1+ teaspoon of salt and 1+ teaspoon of pepper sounds like quite a lot! I wound up using much less--about 1/4 teaspoon of each was quite enough for us, on about 3/4 pound of asparagus. In addition, I coated the asparagus with 1 tablespoon of olive oil before I placed it in the oven, and when done, I tossed it with only 1 tablespoon of lemon juice combined with 1 teaspoon of butter. This was ample seasoning for our tastes. Of course, more of any of the ingredients may be added, if desired. Oh, and I only did 5 minutes under the broiler. 15 minutes would have turned my beautiful asparagus into crispy critters!

Crunchy Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
This salad is a nice combination of flavors and textures. However, I believe the salad dressing would benefit from the addition of some sesame oil, and maybe a dash of chili garlic sauce.

Roasted Loin of Pork with Pan Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
This has a wonderful aroma as it cooks, and the rub is quite tasty, but I will decrease the cayenne pepper next time. Roasted to an internal temperature of 145 gave us a moist and tender roast. Thanks for the idea!

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Tried this as a kind of desperation dinner, and followed the recipe to a "T". It had a good flavor, but I think Italian style tomatoes and another garlic clove would make it better. Also, even though the chicken was done after 30 minutes, the topping was a little soggy. Next time, I think I will bake it a few more minutes for more crunch.
