Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
You can't go wrong! I've always preferred using the "hand mashed" method rather than whipping potatoes to death with a mixer! They get rubbery! (gross lol) anyway - these are perfect and i did purchase specially white ground pepper. I've never liked black pepper much, the white is perfect! thank you!

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
WONDERFUL! I couldn't locate my mom's old standby to use to make for my son's graduation BBQ. I prefer pies that use corn starch as the thickening agent. This pie uses both, but found it to set up perfectly, it did not have the pasty flour taste I don't like when using flour only. I wondered if 2 lemons would be enough...this was perfectly tart/sweet and did remind me of my mom's. AND, I actually made meringue for the first time in years! It turned out lovely! I will most certainly make this again! THANK YOU FOR SHARING!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Excellent Recipe! My mom used to make a pumpkin bundt cake that is pretty darn good, but this bread is outstanding. I made as is, i add vanilla to most of my baking and did to this too. Very Moist. Wrapped tightly and it continued to get better as flavors melded together. Only think i'll change is i'll try adding some english or black walnuts to my next batch. Thank you for sharing!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2012
OMG, this cake is incredible! I did brew some strong coffee to use in place of the water...yumm....coffee seems to bring out the flavor of chocolate nicely. I didn't have chocolate pudding on hand so used vanilla pudding and added about 1/4 cup cocoa. Worked Well. Don't be afraid of using the full cup of oil....this recipe is perfect. I used regular sized chocolate chips....I had no problem with the chips sinking. Your batter should be very thick. They stayed suspended for me fine and the nice big bite of chocolate is wonderful. Like so many others, I used the silky chocolate glaze. I garnished with chopped pecans PERFECT!!! My son isn't wild about chocolate, his flavor is lemon. But I made this for my birthday cake. Gave him some and he loved it. He said it was the best chocolate cake he'd ever had! My substitution of the pudding was fine. I just didn't want to run to store lol. But try the coffee....my only suggestion to change. Will be making again and will be on the desert table for thanksgiving this year! Thanks for sharing!

Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Gal-Bi)

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
This recipe is unbelievable! I couldn't find beef short ribs so I used pork country ribs. I followed the recipe exactly as its written. my husband loves my cooking anyway, but he raved about these ribs. I made fried rice as a side dish. Wonderful together! I've got them marinating now for tonight. I think I'm going to try to boil some of the marinade and serve a little bit as a dipping sauce with them. I'll edit this and let you know how that turns out. These are perfect!

Braised Beef Eye of Round with Mushroom & Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
with the cost of beef on the rise - this takes a leaner, cheaper steak cut, allowing a delicious, tender and flavorful meal on a budget. Served with Rice (I prefer long grain and wild rice, but was out) and green beans, it made a well balanced family meal. very yummy.

Not Your Average Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
I'll give the concept 5 starts - butterflying the chicken for grilling is easy and surpurb! The concept of adding herbs etc under the skin is excellent. I liked the taste of the onions, garlic and herbs - but i'm still debating the sour cream. don't get me wrong, i LOVE sour cream, but this way i'm just not sure....i may try some other spread i "invent" and cook with this method. The flavor was excellent....just wasn't wild about the way the sour cream "clumped" under the skin.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Good base recipe. I decided to make first without changes (however i did use chicken base and made broth rather than water). Great flavor, but I found it a bit "rich". I will use this, but probably add more chicken broth to thin down a bit and some frozen mixed vegatables and try again. Tear the biscuts up small, they cook faster also. Try this and play with recipe a bit. a great family meal!

Slow-Cooked, Texas-Style Beef Brisket

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
wonderful! we adjusted the time for a smaller brisket - about 6 lbs and cooked 18 hours or so. I'm not wild about liquid smoke flavoring so left it out, i'm sure if you like smoke flavoring, i'm sure this recipe would still be exceptional! My husband was impressed because it didn't have the typical BBQ sauce flavor, it was subtle and a bit sweet. Excellent recipe! thank you for sharing...

Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
wow...i've been seeing this recipe on t.v. commercials lately, wanted to try it. didn't want to go to grocery store today, so used what i had on hand. had chicken tenders thawed out so used them. i didn't have italian bread crumbs, so used my plain ones and added italian seasoning. i pat dry the tenders and did brush the mayo (ONLY HELLMANN'S IS ALLOWED IN MY HOUSE! :D) and parmesan cheese on both sides, topped with bread crumbs and baked. served with scalloped potatoes and green beans. WOW THIS RECIPE IS SO EASY AND MOST DEFINITELY A KEEPER!
