Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
We didn't care for this. Made exactly as described, and the chicken was swimming in butter. It didn't have a distinctive flavor, pretty bland for a curry. I will keep looking.

Mashed Maple Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
Let me just add to the many great reviews this recipe has received! It's beyond delicious. Tastes to me like pumpkin pie filling, only better. I'm thinking of having it for dessert. It doesn't even need a dollop of whipped cream, since the cream is inside! Following the advice of previous reviewers, I made a few changes to lighten it up a bit. It is still not healthy by any stretch of the imagination. Used 5T butter, increased sweet potatoes to 5 and eggs to 3, cut brown sugar to 1/4 cup, used only 1T vanilla, omitted the pecans in the dish (still used the ones on top) and omitted the maple syrup drizzle on top. Also used light maple-flavored syrup. My husband has demanded we not lose this recipe! Thanks JENNYWRITES!

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
This is my new go-to roll recipe. Fabulously light, chewy and delicious. I make the dough in the breadmaker on the dough cycle (90 min) then scoop into the muffin cups, greased with a little shortening to make them release easily. Yes, the dough will be sticky, but don't add flour! These rolls are delish.

Beef and Cabbage Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2014
Let me join the ranks of the raving reviewers. I am usually not a stew lover but I had some top round steak I needed to use and found this recipe. I made it exactly as written (with the exception of not peeling the potatoes) and it was delicious. Just the right consistency and the cabbage flavor is very subtle. I'll definitely be making it again.

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2014
Just yum! My hubby said it was the best pie he'd ever had. I did it with homemade crust and a lattice top to let some of the water evaporate. Even better (I think) after sitting overnight in the fridge. Then again I am partial to cold pie. Glad I made this one!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
I've made just the sauce portion of this recipe several times, cutting back on the sugar as other reviewers have suggested. It makes a good sauce for the chicken meatballs from Costco, just add some chopped bell peppers.

Super Easy Rosemary Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
Really enjoyed this. Fantastic texture - great for toast. I add the yeast last, as recommended by my breadmaker. Update: After making this about 6-8 more times over the few months, I have come up with a slightly more healthy version without sacrificing taste. Reduce both sugar and olive oil from 3 Tbsp. to 2 Tbsp. Increase the rosemary to about 2 Tbsp. Substitute 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour for the white flour if desired. I always use bread flour instead of all-purpose.

Chow Mein with Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
This was really good. Not bland at all, with just the right amount of spice/flavor. I believe this was because what I had on hand was spicy oyster sauce and hot chili sesame oil instead of regular sesame oil. I used two 6-oz packages of precooked yakisoba noodles. I omitted the zucchini. We all enjoyed it and will be making this one again.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
I like this bread and will make it again. It has a light, fluffy inner texture. I used the prescribed 1 Tbsp of salt inside the dough, and just a sprinkling on top, and found it to be too salty tasting. Next time I will reduce the salt to 3/4 Tbsp instead of 1 Tbsp. Also, I don't know if the cheese is necessary but it gives it a nice appearance. A note about baking method (I did two loaves, each with a different baking method) - a dark bottomed pan coated with oil produces a nice medium brown bottom crust, but baking on wax paper resulted in the crust sticking to the wax paper and the bottom not browning at all. I had read the reviewer who said to use parchment paper and decided to use wax paper since I didn't have parchment. I don't know if the result would be the same, but I'm not willing to try it. Use an oiled, dark bottomed pan and you won't be disappointed.

I like Pad Thai, but just didn't care for this.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2013
Made exactly as described, but no one in our family cared for this at all. It just had a weird texture, and not much flavor. We ate a few bites, then went to reheat yesterday's leftovers. Oh, well. I felt it was my civic duty to put in a rating since the reason I tried this was its super high rating.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
This is excellent quiche. It is important to drain the spinach beforehand because it makes the quiche too watery. I tried evaporating the water off in the pan with the onions and it was only partially successful. I used plain feta and topped with bacon pieces. The flavors were great together.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
We did not particularly care for these. THey are difficult to cook as the cheese in the beef gets stuck to the grill, even using cooking spray. Also, the bacon was not cooked by the time the burgers were done, leaving us with semi-raw, chewy bacon to contend with at each bite. I won't be making these again.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
Came out pretty dry, so I would double the sauce next time, and add some red thai chiles or more red pepper flakes to give it some heat.

Strawberry-Mango Mesclun Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
Fabulous. Glad I read reviews first. I'm consolidating other reader's suggestions here, which I followed and got good results 1. Use equal parts EVOO and balsamic (half cup each) 2. Reduce sugar to 1/3 or 1/4 cup 3. Toast the almonds first I added kiwi because I had it and did not use dried cranberries. Avocado would be a good addition instead of the kiwi. Great flavor, and leftovers were great as a marinated fruit salad, after discarding the wilted lettuce. Will definitely make again!!

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
Quite good. This recipe makes a lot. If you're not feeding a crowd, I recommend using the leftover meat in "Chef John's Stuffed Peppers", which are super good

Chef John's Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
Really good. Will make these again. I was a bit leery of putting the meat and peppers in the oven totally raw, but the sauce does a good job of cooking the peppers. It took about an hour, though, and I wasn't 100% sure the meat got cooked, but it sure tasted delicious!

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
Could only find a boneless roast (maybe 2 lbs?) and though the flavor was good it was way too much liquid for that much meat. There is quite a bit of prep before it goes in the slow cooker so make sure you allow plenty of time if making it in the morning before work. And I wasn't expecting a pot roast w/o potatoes. It just didn't seem like pot roast without potatoes. I'll add some if I make again.

Chef John's Caramel Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
This had good flavor, but the chicken breast pieces got way overcooked while waiting for the sauce to reduce/caramelize. My fault for not reading the reviews first! Next time I will use the chicken thighs or make the sauce separately from the chicken.
