Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
We could probably make an advertisement with this recipe. 'Nothing gets between me and my mashed potatoes.' Keep it simple and let the mashed potato strut its stuff. Very good.

Pat's Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
I thought the balsamic vinegar added Pop to the mushrooms without overwhelming the natural flavours. I liked it!

Pineapple Casserole Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
My first attempt was a huge success, even though I forgot to drain the crushed pineapple. I haven't tried draining the pineapple in my subsequent attempts. It was very sweet, but my subsequent attempts at the recipe to cut back the sugar were not as good. The dish is too sweet for a side dish in our family. Hubby didn't think the cheddar cheese topping was a good fit, and the cheese may not be necessary for a successful dessert. I have tried using up some whole grain bread that was getting a little stale, and it was good, but we enjoy the results better when I use a fresh heavy white bread. The cinnamon is a good addition.

Chocolate Mousse II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
Worked very well for me. I used high grade dark chocolate chips. They melted instantly with the addition of the hot water, no need for blender, microwave or double boiler, although I was prepared to use the microwave. Be sure to have the egg whites beaten and ready for the final mixing so that the chocolate doesn't cool and set before you are finished. Makes a very dark, rich mousse, which I love. I added whipped cream on top which helped to soften the intense flavour.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
We enjoy the tang of the parmesan on the mild fish. Cooking time can be tricky because fish is quite varied in thickness, I will sometimes overlap the thinner portions of two pieces to get a more consistent thickness. I line my grilling pan with tin foil.

Chef John's Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
This worked very well for me. The sprouts were tender without being mushy and the sprout eaters in the family liked the dish. Of course, not everyone likes sprouts, even if they are done to perfection.

Simple Garlic Shrimp

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
Be prepared to pull out the shrimp when they are done and finish the sauce separately. Smaller shrimp may cook faster than required to finish off the sauce and it is critical to avoid over cooking the shrimp. Have the ingredients fully prepped, as in measured and combined where appropriate, and not just putting containers out on the counter. Husband calls this one a keeper, 5 stars.

Chef John's Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
Very good, chicken is moist, mushrooms are very tasty. Update: Still one of Hubby's favourites. I have also used bone-in chicken thighs when I couldn't find breast with the skin still on.

Chef John's Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
Be prepared to leave the salmon in the oven a little longer than specified, depending on the thickness of the cut. The combination of broiler and oven in this recipe made for a great presentation. I look forward to experimenting with other fresh herbs.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
The roast was juicy and flavourful. I was careful not to overcook and pulled it out of the oven when the temperature was 150F and let it sit under a tinfoil hat for 10 minutes while I finished the sauce. I used a combination of white wine and chicken stock for te sauce as I am not sure that I like a lot of wine in cooking.
