Easy Chicken Stew with Apple

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
I used this as a base guideline for a stew I made tonight. This alone has some odd things that just do not pair together, as it stands it needs to have a balance of savory and sweet and this is not it. If you followed these directions you would end up with a soupy mess with odd ball flavor contrasts. This is what I did since I just received about 48 red apples a couple days ago I cut them up and froze them. I made a base boiling 4 chicken thighs in a pot of water then when cooked through took them out to cut the meat off. I seasoned the water with a tablespoon of soy sauce, and then added chicken bouillon till it tasted right. I diced up some baby carrots and a handful of broccoli tossed it in, with the diced chicken. I then made some traditional dumplings and added in two tablespoons of corn starch whisked in a half cup of water to thicken it. I added in two cups of diced apples and boiled it for 45 minutes to soften the apples and cook the dumplings. added salt and pepper to taste and it came out great. Why would you add in vinegar ? of any kind ? that would completely destroy the delicate balance of the sweet and savory ! Sweet and Savory not Sweet and Sour !

Italian Feather Bread Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
Great pizza Dough recipe this is a keeper, lots of flavor and great texture. one thing I had to add almost a cup and 1/2 extra flour in order to make it workable so the flour measurement is wrong but everything else is right on ! Baked at 450 for 25 minutes

Fried Rice with Cilantro

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
When I lived in California there was a Mexican/Asian Fusion restaurant I used to visit on lunch hours. they had the most amazing Cilantro rice well since I left California and no live in the Midwest I have not found a replacement and I missed it a lot. This is not exactly like theirs but it is a good start, I will be tweaking this recipe till I get it right. Thanks for sharing it is as close to home as I have found so far.

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
The best Biscuit Recipe by far have used this for a couple years and never with a failed batch. it is simple and it is good you cant get any better than this for a good American country Biscuit and peppered Gravy meal. I have also used it a few times by adding. 1/4 small white onion diced 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese 2 tsp. chicken bouillon If you have ever had "Red Lobster" Biscuits this is very close but still missing a little "some thing"
