Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2014
Great basic recipe. The two things we did differently that put them over the top: 1st we steamed them for 10 minutes to get rid of excess fat. Then, after drying, we dredged them in the dry ingredients, put them on a pan sprayed with cooking spray and baked. When we pulled them out, we tossed them in Frank's hot wing sauce, minus the butter to again reduce the fat content. With these adjustments we may never buy store bought wings again.

Deep South Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2014
This is the way my mother and grandmother both made fried chicken. It's also the way my husband's (also a multi-generational Georgian) grandmother made fried chicken and they raised chicken on their farm. I'm from the deep south (5th generation Georgian) and this is the only way I had fried chicken until the fast food places came along. It makes for a thinner crust, and to my mind is much more the traditional deep south fried chicken than one where you use eggs to make a thicker crust.

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2014
I really enjoy the versatility of this recipe. After trying it as written for the first time, I made these changes: Following other reviews, I reduce the oil and sugar by 1/3. I do sub chili oil for chili paste because it's what's in my pantry. Put a cup of edamame in it, along with some onion an orange pepper. For the initial serving, I heat the noodles in the sauce, per one recommendation and serve it warm. Put the rest in the fridge to serve as a cold salad. That way I have the best of both worlds. Thanks for posting.

Perfectly Roasted Vegetable

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
I've made variations on this recipe and they are all wonderful. The cook's note is correct, it lends itself to changing up based on what's available and in season. It's also true that you may want to vary the times and temps based on your oven and tastes. I personally like mine pretty caramelized, so I prefer the longer, higher cooking times. Thanks, also, for the tip about soaking the brussel sprouts. That's the change that pushes this to the top for me.

Corn On The Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking)

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
Followed the cooking directions here and decided it needed one more minute in my microwave. Second time around I cooked it 2 1/2 minutes per side. It was perfect. No silk, easy clean up and no heat added to the kitchen. Since different microwaves are different powers, you may need to experiment slightly to find the perfect time for yours; but this is my new go-to way to cook corn on the cob.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
We use this recipe any time we want tacos now. Its quick, easy and tastes way better than those you find on the grocery store shelves. Biggest advantage for me: they are low sodium so I can enjoy tacos again. We make a recipe and divide them into round balls which we then freeze. Easy to get out the number we need for the next meal, thaw and cook. Excellent recipe.

Sweet Hot Mustard Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
I liked this, and thought the chicken was even better cold the next day. Unfortunately, hubs didn't like it at all, thus the 3 star rating. It's a fine recipe, just not for us.

Pan-Seared Tilapia

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
Excellent way to prepare a mild fish. I used grouper and it was wonderful. Next time, I will probably omit the brush of butter as I felt like that was just more than it needed.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
I love this way of preparing Brussels sprouts. For me, the darker on the outside, the better. I bypass the baggie and prepare the pan with some evoo. Then I put the sprouts on the pan, coat with a small amount of evoo and add a little kosher salt. I do try shaking the pan at least twice during cooking to insure uniform cooking.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I gave this 5 stars because you can do a few slight tweaks to perfect it for your family. For my family, I reduced the pepper flakes by 1/2 and added a Tbs. of cornstarch to the mix. Used 1 Tbs. per 1/2 lb. of meat, then added some to the black beans I was preparing on the side. Since I am on a salt restricted diet, this was perfect because I could manage the sodium and know exactly how much I was eating. Thanks for this recipe, Bill. This recipe is putting tacos back into our regular rotation.

The Supreme Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Excellent recipe with a couple of modifications suggested by other reviewers. I sauteed the onions before putting them on and then made the dish into individual casserole dishes so I could add sauteed mushrooms to mine (dh hates them). Because I'm on a low salt diet, I used some homemade chicken stock in place of canned beef gravy and it worked great. This recipe lends itself to lots of personalization depending on taste and using individual casserole dishes made it over the top for us.

Sheryl's Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
I really liked this with the addition of onion slices in between the potato slices. Next time I will try mixing the butter with a little evoo as it did burn and smoke some toward the end of baking.Did have to leave off the cheese as I am on a low salt diet and haven't found any low-salt cheese yet. Also, had a small potato, so I cut the onion slices in half and put the cut side up. Next time I will put the cut side down as the onion charred a little on the ends. Overall, an excellent choice for potatoes.

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
We enjoyed the difference this brings, but missed the more savory/tart flavors of a traditional tomato salsa. Still, I can see it being a hit at a party if it doesn't get too watery sitting out.

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
Really enjoyed this salad. Made it twice, the first time I ate it minutes after putting it together. The second I let everything except the avocado sit together for a couple of hours, then I added the avocado and let that sit for another 30 minutes or so. I liked it better giving it a little time to sit as it gives the citrus juice time to soften a little with the cucumber. Next I want to try it with some chopped fresh tomatoes.

Creamy Avocado Cucumber Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
Initially I liked this; but I tired of it quickly. Might be good for a small appetizer.

Chicken Tinga Tostados

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
Made this with a pinch of cinnamon as suggested and used 1 chipotle pepper per breast. Mixed everything together for the sauce, put it all in the crock pot and let it cook all day. It was wonderful. Used the leftovers to make a casserole with corn tortillas layered with chicken tinga and then covered it all with homemade green chille salsa. Hubby liked this even better. Big time hit! Thanks for the post.

Awesome Egg Salad with a Kick

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Great egg salad when you want a change. Next time I think I may increase the horseradish since I'm a big fan and add some crumbled applewood smoked bacon instead of the bacon bits. Thanks for this post. Update: I made this today with applewood smoked bacon that I crumbled into it and greek yogurt with just a small amount of mayo in place of the mayo-sour cream mixture. The bacon really kicks it up and the yogurt mixture makes it healthier and lower in fat.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
This is 5 stars with a couple of "tweaks". I made it following the recipe as written and found it lacking a little in curry flavor. Then I doubled the curry and added a few red pepper flakes, yum!!!! Thanks for the post.

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
I likes the mix, but think next time I'll add some ginger and either omit the sugar or cut it in half. Mixed in some edamame red pepper sliced thin, carrots sliced thin and a little onion to make the salad more of a complete dish. Made the dressing in advance so the flavors could mix before putting them on the noodles, really liked the results.
