Homemade Tomato Sauce I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
Made this recipe today...I agree with many that it is a "good base recipe"....as written...it comes out very bland. I used black pepper, thyme, additional basil, and additional Italian Seasoning to make it taste great. One great variable is the type of Tomatoes you may be using.....I am using Southern Tomatoes....Big Boys...and Better Boys...I used no sugar. I also added at least a tablespoon of salt. If you "play with it"....I am sure you can make it work for you.

Mike's Hot and Sour Chinese Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
This is a good recipe. I made this recipe as written. The recipe lacks the spices required for a good Chinese Hot and Sour. The recipe is neither hot nor sour - If you read the reviews....you will see that most others gave it 4 / 5 stars (because it is good....it is just not hot or sour).....but added additional vinegar and additional pepper of various kinds. The recipe also needs quite a bit of more salt...either from soy...or possibly sea salt. I rated the recipe 1 star - because on its own...it does not produce a hot and sour soup. I'll use the recipe again...as a base...and then work on getting the spices right.

Chef John's Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
Excellent made as recipe states. If you want to "zip it up" hit it with some Tony's Louisiana Seasoning. I think he spells his name Tony Chattere' of something like that. Dynomite in a bowl!

Roasted Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
What a nice change. I like a lot of different seasonings for corn-on-the-cob (butter, lemon pepper, paprika, and Cavendar's Greek Seasoning) this is nice one for even more variety. Thanks.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
I didn't have any Taco seasoning and I needed it for a recipe. I usually use "Lowery's". This stuff was just as good if not better. PS Don't you just love the folks who decide to tweak recipes.....and then report they don't like them....It should be against the rules

Deep Fried Jalapeno Slices

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I am not sure what went wrong. I thought I followed the recipe; maybe I got too hot of jalepeno pepper. They were miserable. Not sue what the prob was.
