Chef John's Garlic and Ginger Bok Choy

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
I love Bok Choy. I would leave out the soy sauce if I make it again. I thought it just made it too salty without any flavor boost. Maybe replace it with rice wine vinegar?

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
Very nice! The flavor is subtle. Next time I may add some toasted almonds to the topping. Thanks, Molly

Sometimes the simplest recipes produce the best flavors. I think I have found my new favorite way to cook cauliflower. Thank, oceanic a!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
My only change was to stir in raisins instead if chocolate chips. The flavor is quite nice, but I would have preferred a more moist texture. I baked mine 52 minutes at a slightly lower temperature. It is hard to cut cleanly with no crumbles. But the important thing is it does taste good. Thank you, Shanna

Minty Peach Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2014
This is delicious! I used Sriracha as my hot sauce and lime juice in place of lemon because I had no lemons. My son called it "lady food" and then proceeded to finish it. Thanks, this will become a summer staple.

Poached Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2014
Very nice! I used homemade stock, which was made with carrots, onion and celery so I just added the tomato paste, salt , bay leaf, and peppercorns. My chicken is moist and flavorful and the kitchen smelled great. Thanks, Ace!

Fennel and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2014
I thought the fennel flavor a bit overwhelming so I did an even balance of fennel to potatoes and used leeks in place of the spring onions. I used red potatoes and left the skin on, it makes an interesting texture. If you can make this ahead of time the flavors really benefit from refrigeration. I think my favorite thing about this soup is it is so versatile. Serve it warm or cold! It tastes good either way.

Blueberry and Peach Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2014
I used fresh local peaches and blueberries, but the frozen would work well out of season. I did double the topping because it seemed skimpy as written. Very nice. Thanks, Meg&Mom!

Italian Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
We loved this! I made brunch with this as the main dish. I made 2 very minor adjustments rubbed sage in place of fresh leaves and I made my own biscuits. The next time I make this, and I will for sure, I will dilute the sauce a bit with milk to cut the saltiness. This is inherent in the sauce and no reflection of Duboo's recipe. Very rich and decadent comfort food. Thanks!

Sassy Freezer Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
Who knew you can freeze cole slaw? I just opened one of the containers I froze last week and was happy with the results. I only made half a recipe and started with a bag of cole slaw mix, followed the recipe as written. I tasted it several hours after I made it and it was good, a week plus later after freezing it is still good. The dressing is a bit sweet for my taste but the family thought it is fine. Thank you, Sassy!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
I was skeptical when I saw how heavy the batter seemed, but I stuck with it and I am so glad I did. These muffins baked up light but moist with a beautiful crumb. I also had to restrain my impulse to ignore the method of preparation. Follow it - it works

Eggs and Spaghetti

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2014
Genius idea! I did make a few tweaks. I used green onion and increased it to whatever one whole (green and white part) yields. I used white pepper because I think it has more flavor and I added freshly grated Parmesan. I also threw my rosemary in my spice grinder to eliminate those sharp leaves so I'm sure I used more than stated. I had homemade coleslaw as a side. Fast and very tasty. Thank you pkelley.

Stuffed Alfredo Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
I went a slightly different route and used broccoli rabe instead of spinach. This is very rich and filling and I loved the slight bitterness of the greens with the lush sauce. Such a creative use of the ingredients. Thank you, TFR

Spicy Alfredo Chicken Bacon Taquitos

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2014
WOW! Probably the best thing I ever ate for lunch. The only Chipolte sauce available here is canned and I find it has an off, metallic taste so I simply seasoned my chicken with chipotle powder that I bought fresh from the Farmers Market. I still got the kick and smokey flavor. Fabulous! We will absolutely have these again. Thank you Patty!

Easy Summer Gazpacho

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
Well done, Renee! I love cold soups and this is a keeper.. I was feeding children as well as adults so I went easy with the hot sauce and allowed folks to add at the table if they chose. I made 8 servings to feed 3 adults and 3 kidlets thinking I would have some left for my lunch tomorrow. Wrong! Thanks.

Lela's Protein Mango Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
What a guilt free mid afternoon pick me up! I have shied away from protein powder because my DS uses it in nasty looking and smelling potions, but it is fine this way. Thanks, Lela!

Libum from Pompei

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
It would have been helpful to know how many rolls to expect. I was unsure how many constituted a serving. So I made 6, which seemed reasonable. They do puff while baking and fresh out of the oven are quite nice. Once they cool they deflate leaving dense, bland disks.
