Joe's General Tso's Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
This recipe is just OK as written. It's lacking garlic and ginger. It was delicious with those 2 ingredients added.

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2015
I had everything on hand and was going to make cordon blue, but this recipe appealed to me...my family are cheese lovers. I think you should always season the chicken and lightly flour before dipping & breading for better flavor and better adhesive of the breading. I also used low fat cheeses and thawed and squeezed out the moisture of frozen spinach and added a bit to the filling for color and at least some nutrient. Next time I'll get smaller breasts as they are quite rich.

Cheesy Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
Squashes like sweet potatoes have so much more flavor when baked in the oven first, even though microwaving is faster. I tried the recipe as written (besides the baking of the squash and adding minced garlic) and we just weren't real crazy about the dish. I may try again but will try with half the called for onions and add panko and fresh grated parmesan for the topping instead of cheddar as that was the taste we didn't quite like with the squash.

Sweet Teriyaki Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
The marinade is similar to the one I use for my chicken satay. I used this recipe and the idea to make it with both chicken & steak. Family loved the variety! This marinade was great. I served it with rice and my spicy Thai peanut sauce for dipping.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2014
This is very simular to a dish we served over 17 years ago (I say served, as I movd from the area) at a restuarant I ran. Only difference is we used a bit more of (our version) of cajun spices & (didn't use green peppers) and servied it over orzo with wonderfully prepared asparagus and a nice chunk of our artisan bread. This was a customer favorite! I have prepared this at home with linguini and is just as good. I still don't add green pepper, I don't like the bitter taste they add to cream sauces. Fresh minced garlic instead of powder is necessary! Great comfort food with a restuarant flair!

Three Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2014
I agree that the sauce needs to be pumped up, but the author of this recipe doesn't mention what type of sauce to use... that, dear cooks is of course left up to you! Since my family loves my homemade sauce with sausage, that it's what I used. I cooked the pasta under al dente to make them easier to handle and piped in the cheese mixture with a pastry bag. A large baggie with a hole cut in the corner works well too. Less mess!

Country-Style Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
Well, photo of this dish looked great... nice looking rich gravy! I baked it at 300, being nervous about 350 for 2 hrs, and although the steak was nice and tender, the gravy was pasty looking, tasting, and had no flavor. We were fighting for the S & P! I was glad I seasoned the meat before I floured them. If I ever make this again, I'll add way less flour to the broth and season it well before pouring over the meat. A bit disappointed after the long bake time.

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
I liked how easy these were to make and surprised I haven't tried home made egg rolls before as much Asian cooking as I do. Because of that, I have plenty of condiments to spruce up the flavor! I used the slaw mix and added a bit more shredded carrots, added a Tbsp. each of soy & Mirin, used a large minced clove of fresh garlic instead of powder, and increased the amount fresh ginger called for. I added a squirt of Sriracha sauce for kick. Hard to stop eating these! (These can be frozen!)

Cranberry Salad III

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
This is a very old recipe that I learned to make from my grandmother. She made it every Christmas dinner and when she passed away my mother took it over and so on...We called it the Christmas salad and the only thing we do differently is add an extra layer of lime (green) jello which has minced celery added. Great combo!

Holiday Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Last year, I bought a grocery store bakery brownie and just let it sit out over night, worked out fine. What I did differently, was to add a tablespoon of Creme de Cacao (chocolate liquor) along with the rum, & I rolled them lightly in chocolate sprinkles just after the melted chocolate had set. Took them to a Christmas party and they were quite the hit! This year I'm making batches to add to other goodies for gifts. If you make these right, 5 stars is what you should be rating this recipe!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
This has replaced my old stand by recipe. Easy to make and very easy to work with...I didn't even chill it. And best of all it tastes great! Thanks for posting!

Easy Chicken and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
We love soups in the colder months with a hearty loaf of artisan bread! I have been trying to find a corn chowder like my mom's and this came close! I had a bag of frozen yellow corn, and a can of creamed corn in the pantry, so that's what I used. This recipe needed some seasoning though! I like that the recipe calls for nutmeg which is great in creamy soups. I also added a half of small jar of pimento which gives great flavor to creammy soupy and used white pepper.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

I too made some changes to the raspberry sauce, but giving 5 stars for the great idea for a nice newer fall recipe for chops! We all enjoyed this and tasty accompanied with Au Gratin potatoes, and candied carrots.

Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I'm giving this 5 stars basically because of "stepperanddaniel's" creativity. I usually make a dinner with a Halloween theme, but couldn't think of a new idea & happy I ran across it. I made these with orange bell peppers for Halloween last night and the grand kids who were visiting loved them & even the hubby got a kick out of them! I did use my mom's recipe that I grew up with because it's tried and true (and love that it has rice in the mix) So...I can't really rate the recipe, but just wanted to say thanks much for sharing the idea!

Chef John's Swedish Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
I thought this recipe was really good, although I share the opinion of another reviewer which is to make & cook the meatballs first. I was in a rush so this made the cooking time faster, and took a couple extra shortcuts. I did not saute the onions-I just minced them, and did not chill the meatballs either, I just rolled them & tossed them right in the oven. (came out fine!) I started the gravy (I also added a bit of nutmeg to the sauce)after the meatballs were in the oven for about 10 minutes so both were hot & ready at the same time. I should add that I only made enough meatballs for 3 but kept the gravy amount as written so we would have plenty for the egg noodles we topped this dish with. We loved the flavor, and these will replace the recipe I've used in the past!

Sauce Rosee

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
We really liked this sauce although I started with less olive oil (6 tbls. not necessary). I tossed grilled chicken and penne with the sauce and it came out very nice.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I was in a rush and requested to make gingerbread cookies so this recipe was great for me. This rolled out easily without stickiness and very easy to cut out and position. I did bake them for only 8 minutes on the second tray and liked them a tad softer. I doubled the recipe and glad I did as the yield was much better. I did add clove and nutmeg to the fold for a bit more traditional flavor. I will certainly be making these again to add to our Christmas cookie platter. Thanks for sharing this Kim!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
Better than my mom's which I have been making for eons, and that is saying a lot! The work is worth it, and my family even wanted the leftovers again the following night. I can't believe anyone could say they were disappointed in this recipe, my goodness! Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe John!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
I grew zucchini this summer and had quite a few! I made this bread with my first ripe one and the family devoured it! I spent an afternoon grating a bunch of them at the end of the season and froze the 2 cups needed in individual freezer bags to enjoy this yummy bread throughout the winter. Excellent recipe!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
This is the first time I have made a creamy casserole versus just baking sliced up and sugared sweet potatoes. Everyone at thanksgiving LOVED this casserole and was asked for the recipe by several people. I will be adding it to my holiday menus from now on! I did add a bit cinnamon & nutmeg to the mix, which I felt it needed. I loved this topping...searched to find a recipe without the usual overly sweet marshmallows...and so happy I found this recipe~thanks Tina B!
