Country fried chicken.

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
It's hard to find a fried chicken recipe for boneless, skinless breasts that does justice to the original dish, but this recipe succeeds. Don't skimp on the brine ingredients or timing - 8 hours is perfect for adding great flavor and moistness to the chicken. If using bone-in, skin-on dark meat, you could probably cut down the brining time - but the boneless, skinless breasts need the added boost. I cut the recipe in half, but followed it as written after that, (as we all should if actually reviewing someone else's work). This one earned its Five Stars and will be in frequent menu rotation in our home. Thanks for the great recipe, Visions!

Pineapple Orange Sorbet

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Excellent sorbet! I had about 1/4th of a cup of Pina Colada mix languishing in the back of the refrigerator, so I added that at the last moment... Pina Colada Sorbet!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
This is an exceptionally good recipe. I usually make buttermilk pancakes, but I wanted to try another baking powder pancake recipe "just because". This one caught my eye and I'm so glad that it did. Delicious. I didn't change anything on the recipe as given and I was totally happy with the light texture and excellent flavor.

Poblano Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
This is a good combination of ingredients, but only rates three stars as written. To improve the dish, I suggest you: Roast and peel the poblano peppers. Add cumin and coriander to the chicken, plus salt. Replace the mozzarella cheese with monterrey jack and/or a blend of true mexican cheeses. Slice the chicken into strips before cooking or shred after cooking.

German Spaetzle Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
A+ again for Marbalet. These are quick and easy once you get the hang of working with the colander or cheese grater, (I need to buy a spaetzle press!), and they are very favorful with a perfect texture. The nutmeg is essential, IMHO, and I did drop them into boiling chicken broth for an extra flavor punch. They were excellent with a beer-braised beef roast.

Famous Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I don't know who "Marbalet" is, but I've just realized that I have more than a few of Marbalet's recipes stored in my Recipe Inbox... This recipe is excellent. I followed the recipe precisely and the result is a mild, complex but subtle blend of flavors that go exceptionally well with leafy lettuce salads. I will definitely make this whenever I have fresh ginger on hand.

Orange White Chocolate Chip Beltane Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
I discovered these by accident while searching for another Christmas cookie recipe. I used satsuma and tangerine rind instead and I'm re-naming these Winter Solstice Cookies! 5 Stars!

Three Meat Cannelloni Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Excellence on a plate. Yes, it takes time to properly construct this dish - and it's worth the effort. As an alternative to making fresh pasta, I made 10 paper-thin basic crepes, (1 c. flour, 1 c. water, 3 eggs), and stacked them between waxed paper until ready to fill and roll - they were a great and easy to make substitute for homemade pasta and FAR better than store-bought cannelloni shells. If you enjoy cooking and love to create memorable dishes, you will enjoy making this wonderful recipe.

Royal Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This is exactly the type of coconut cookie I was looking for - thin, crisp cookies that manage to stay chewy at the same time. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe. Please don't add chocolate chips at first - they deserve to be tried without a strong competing chocolate flavor at least the first time arround.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Very tasty dish! I used my new mini-food processor and the sprouts were shredded before I could say "I hate to shred brussels sprout". I substituted pecans for pine nuts with good results. This will be a recipe that I come back to often. Excellent side dish.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Excellent recipe. I used lemon rind instead because that's all I had on hand. This pie is great with a prepared graham cracker crust - it would be even more fabulous with a homemade one, as the author suggested.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
As others have noted, if you're not going to follow the recipe, don't downgrade the rating. If you mess it up, don't assume it's anyone else's fault! That said, this recipe is AWESOME! I added the sour cream as others suggested, but I think it would be equally delicious either way. My husband declared this the best soup ever, and I might agree - and I'm not even a mushroom soup fan. This dish is exceptionally good.

Chicken Dumpling Strips

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This review is for the dumplings, only. I did my own version of the chicken and vegetables. These dumplings are excellent! Do not expect fluffy, light dumplings and come on here complaining that these were not - we don't want to hear it! These are the old-fashioned cross between a noodle and a dumpling, and they taste just like Grandma used to make. I replaced the shortening with butter for an extra flavor boost, and found that you don't need to roll them out...just take 1" balls of dough and flatten them in your palm, then drop in the boiling liquid. Saves time and mess!

Italian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Excellent recipe! I recommend doubling the sauce and serving with garlic mashed potatoes, (just boil the whole garlic cloves with the potatoes), and adding fresh mushrooms to the sauce.

Steakhouse Black Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
This is a very flavorful black bread and well-worth making again and again. I do recommend increasing the brown sugar from 2 Tbsps to 4 Tbsps - it does not seem to add sweetness to the bread, but it does increase the fullness of flavor.

Stir-Fried Vegetables

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
We truly enjoyed this dish, and were pleasantly surprised at the depth of flavor based on the simple ingredients. I used peanut oil with a splash of sesame oil for the stir-fry, and flash-fried thin slices of fresh ginger and garlic first before adding the vegetables. I replaced 2/3's of the broccoli with sugar snap peas and added a handful of shitake mushrooms. We will definately make this again with whatever assortment of vegetables we have on hand - it's a winner.

Thai Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
The chicken itself was somewhat bland. You really need to have a knock-out Satay sauce recipe to perk up the flavor.
