High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2015
A 2.5 eye round turned out perfectly. Try this. You will not be disappointed. I'll never buy deli roast beef again. Salt, pepper, and garlic powder did the trick wonderfully. The true test? My dog sits patiently waiting for a slice to "fall off" the carving board. Deli roast beef? He won't eat it. (What does he know that I don't?)

Bangers and Mash

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2015
My wife had her doubts and didn't think she or our boys would enjoy this dish. I figured I would be dining alone. It must have been her half-English heritage kicking in because she and the boys gave it the official "this may return to the table" blessing. In fact, my wife pushed the casserole dish away asking for it to be removed from the table so she wouldn't eat any more. I used Irish-Style Bangers that instructed they be cooked in a pan with a shallow (1/4") pool of oil. I don't think I even used that much, honestly. The sausages were browned perfectly and then I butterflied them. I'm not sure what size square casserole they used, but the amount of potatoes and sausages mandated I use a 9X12. I did cheat on one thing: I used bottled gravy instead of the powder packaged type. (I haven't used it but my spider-sense told me jarred was going to be better.) After the onions were tender I threw in the gravy and let them cook until bubbly and heated thru. This will start us celebrating Boxing Day with this on the menu. And now onto Bubble and Squeak!

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
Oh, baby, what a winner! I sliced off the stem end of the pepper and scooped out the ribs and seeds. This results in an "open" end of the pepper. Best to use gloves, or an unwanted guest, for cutting and cleaning your peppers. ; ) Tips: 1). After scooping out the pepper, return the seeds by mixing into the cream cheese. 2) Refrigerate for several hours, or overnight, to firm up the cream cheese. ( I let the cream cheese soften so I could mix in the seeds and the suggested dried ranch dressing mix, which was delicious.) 3) Wrap bacon over the open end of the pepper to keep the contents contained. 4). Cook pepper cream cheese side down first, then flip. The temp of the grill will soften the cream cheese, so this will prevent it from oozing out of the pepper. This is also why you should wrap the open end of the pepper. I will experiment in the future with other cream cheese flavors. Enjoy!

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
I HAD a recipe for sausage and peppers. It wasn't the best, but it was like those comfortable shoes that just don't do the job anymore but you can't get rid of them. Well, those shoes and that recipe are gone and in its place is this culinary treasure. I haven't had better anywhere. The only thing I did in addition to the recipe was to throw in a token amount of marinara halfway through the final 15 minute stage, maybe a quarter to half a cup. Other than that, I followed this recipe to a T and even did the sweet/hot sausage mix. Excellent. Can't wait for the next social event. This one is going to knock their socks off. Thank you for sharing. This one is going into our family cookbook. For those that find 15 minutes is too long to cook the peppers and onions, try cutting your slices a little thicker; pencil thin cuts are too small. Or simply cook it for a shorter time. As long as your sausages are fully cooked before you add them you are safe.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
There is NEVER a pre-packaged container of store bought guacamole or mix to which you add avacados in my house after making this recipe. It doesn't take long and the accolades from family and guests is amazing. (Isn't that what every cook wants?) If I don't make this for every gathering I get stared down. Made this during a multi-family vacation in Myrtle Beach. It was gone in less than 5 minutes. Made it the next day, doubled the recipe, and it didn't even make it to the fridge for the 1 hour. I'd give it 6 stars.

Polish Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
Made ths recipe for my wife who loves the compination of cabbage and a starch such as noodles or potatoes. Maybe it was the fact I used egg noodles instead of the ones listed in the recipe (they dont carry these in my market) but the end result was a mush and the wife, using our family rating system, said this should never return to the table. I even suggested some variations, but no. It's a shame. I was thinking this would be a home run, but in the end I struck out swinging.

Oat Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
Surprisingly good. As I was making this I thought it was going to be a tasteless disaster. The minimal amount of ingredients was a concern as was the cooking procedure itself. I mean, come on, two steps? But what came forth from the pot was flavorful and surprisingly filling. (My portion of the entree that evening was much smaller than usual.) I might consider some modifications, such as more garlic and perhaps slightly more cilantro, but that's just personal taste. It's getting five stars because my wife loved it. Enjoy!
