Best Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
We've made this three times on the grill in the last month. The marinade prep is really quick and because there's just the two of us I use the full marinade recipe for 4 chops. Let it rest for about 3 hours in the fridge. Have never grilled boneless pork because it gets so dry, but this was just perfect. So flavorful and juicy. Even the leftover meat was moist the next day. Highly recommend. Make sure you use the low sodium soy sauce and good quality lemon pepper.

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Truthfully, many recipes I try on this site can disapoint. This one is an absolute winner. Did the dry ingredients the night before in a big bowl and had my grandson overnight who had begged for pancakes. Added the milk, egg, butter and FRESH blueberries in the a.m. and it came together in a flash. I did let it proof for an hour. The batter is thick, so I put three at a time on my stovetop grill and spread the batter out a little. Kept the ones that were done in a low oven, heated the maple syrup and had fresh butter out to smear. Honestly, these were simply wonderful and I will make them again and again.

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
My 2 star review had nothing to do with the flavor of this dish - the recipe was perfect. I followed it as written and made the mistake of cooking it in my 6 quart crockpot. The condensation of steam from the underside of the glass cover began to fall back into the dish, and when it was finished it was actually watered down to something like an Indian butter chicken soup! So disappointed, as the wonderful spices lost their intensity. I will make this again, but will prepare it and slow cook it in my cast iron enamel pot for a few hours in a 300 oven, and add the yoghurt when the dish is finished. I'm thinking that way I can control the liquid.

Chicken with Garlic, Basil, and Parsley

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly, but I guess I'm in the minority - they were just ok. I found the chicken looking pale, not much flavor and without the addition of any liquid, they were a little dry. We sliced up the leftovers the next day and made a sandwich with aoili mayo and some sliced fresh tomato.

Confetti Salad by Jean Carper

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
This has every element of the best kind of recipe: it's inexpensive, very healthy, tasty, quick, and makes lots! I first clipped this recipe years ago out of a newspaper. It fell apart when I went to make it last week, so I came to allrecipes and here it was. It's just great.

Miniature Chocolate Eclairs

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
I decided against chocolate pudding and chose Jello custard flavor that's not instant and needs some cooking. The size is 2.9 ounces, but calls for two cups of milk and, for extra richness, a beaten egg yolk in the mix. I used 1% milk and it requires constant stirring on medium heat until you get a boil, (about ten minutes) then it's poured into a bowl to chill. The result is a wonderful filling that tastes just like French pastry creme. The dough is simple to make on the stove, but requires a lot of heavy mixing as you throughly blend each egg before adding the next. These are not miniature - I had 12 eclairs that puffed to full size - baking timing was exactly right. Used Ghiradelli baking chocolate squares for the frosting and followed the recipe exactly. They took awhile to make, but the results were impressive and delicious! Piled them on a lovely plate and took them to the family's house on Valentines Day. Absolutely would do these again. Wonderful!

Quinoa with Sweet Potato and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Really good, healthy side dish. I cooked the quinoa in low sodium chicken broth and saved time by buying a bag of raw sweet potato sticks from Trader Joes that could be quickly diced. I also had a really big shallot and used that instead of the onion, but either one would work just fine. Decided to make it again a couple of weeks later, but oh no! forgot the sweet potatoes. Easy fix with a big handful of shredded carrots we use for salads. Blended perfectly with the onions and mushrooms, and that little zing of cayenne was perfect.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
This is absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe exactly. I always keep a bag of fresh bread crumbs in the freezer and I would recommend not using anything else. It went together quickly and even though my coho salmon fillets were not very thick, I did have to roast them for a couple of extra minutes. I'll make this again and again.

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Ran out to the garden and got the last of the chard after seeing this recipe. Made it exactly like the recipe posted, including the suggestion by another reviewer to chop the stems to a quarter inch. This was wonderfully rich and flavorful, and my husband and I shared the whole dish, which is supposed to serve 4. Next time I'll reduce the butter to one tablespoon. I'm going to make it again very soon. Yum!!

Orzo with Kale

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I really wanted to just love this. I had organic kale from the garden and I always need a healthy side dish. Cooking the orzo with turmeric added a kind of bitterness to the pasta. The kale, even with 20 minutes of sauteing did not soften it enough, and it was pretty chewy. I might mess around with this one a little and perhaps use the recipe withou the turmeric, adding a little lemon juice to the pasta and some extra parmesan.

Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I needed a little lighter mashed potato recipe for Thanksgiving and was drawn to the ingredient list. It was truly do-ahead and super tasty. First I calculated the recipe for ten servings - as written the dish only used 3 small yukon gold potatoes. I used 5 medium. I roasted the shallots, broth, thyme and olive oil before the turkey went in and left it covered on the counter. When the turkey was half done, I chopped and boiled the potatoes, and finished the recipe (using 2% evaporated milk for a little richer dish). Then I held the finished potatoes in my crockpot set on low until dinner. This is an excellent side - no whipping cream, cream cheese, goat cheese, etc. I could see this side with a grilled flank steak. Will make often.

Simple Kale Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Just wonderful. I did make some changes. I sauteed a coarsely chopped onion, 6 cloves of garlic and a big carrot, thinly sliced, in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Then stirred in the sliced kale. I couldn't find turkey ham, so I bought a pound of turkey kielbasa, sliced that up and added it to the pot. Finally, added the potatoes (I used Yukon Gold, peeled and chopped, then added sodium-free chicken broth. We try to keep the salt down, so I used a liberal sprinkling of Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute. The result was just perfect!

Vegetarian Kale Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
A wonderful, healthy soup. I used extra garlic. Like others, I used 8 cups of low sodium vegetable broth and chunked up half a package of small waxy fingerling potatoes. I didn't drain the beans, and had no Italian seasoning, so simply added dried basil and oregano, plus fresh chopped parsley at the end. Excellent the day it's made, and gets better by the next. A keeper!

Onions Baked with Rosemary and Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
There's just two of us, so I halved the recipe and prepared it exactly as written. It was a yummy side dish and fresh rosemary is a must. I did use half and half instead of heavy cream, and after the addition of the cream, I would reduce the heat a little next time as the juices cooked away too much. Will make it again - so easy and tasty.

Kalamata Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
OK, this was absolutely wonderful. Pork tenderloin always has to be flavored in some way, and I dislike the pre-flavored brands because if you read the fine print, they've usually been injected with salt water (key word "tender" on the label). I bought a fresh tenderloin, sliced it and whacked it thin between sheets of wax paper, then followed the recipe exactly. It's well worth using fresh rosemary. It was delicious, fast and healthy. While you can refrigerate leftovers, it's best served freshly made. I made orzo with lemon zest and parsley, with a little bit of olive oil and butter, and a side of our fresh garden green beans. Yum.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
I saw this recipe and realized I had a three pound turkey breast growing old in the freezer. I followed the recipe exactly, but only used half a package of the soup mix because of the size and because we watch our sodium. I added a couple of teaspoons of melted butter over the top and put it on high for an hour. Turned it to low for an hour per pound as suggested. I was truly amazed at how moist and tender it was. I did pull the skin off before serving, as it was pretty rubbery. My husband, who suffers through our once a year Thanksgiving turkey, just loved this and said I could make this any time. The meat had the moist texture of a rotisseire chicken. Would absolutely do this again, except next time would probably add some sage and poultry seasoning.

Mahi Mahi with Onions and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
Oh my this was super tasty and fast. I did make some changes after reading other reviews. I doubled the liquid, (wine and lemon juice), used an 8 oz. pkg. of baby bella mushrooms, chopped in half for a deeper flavor and more texture, added a little butter to the olive oil, and probably 6-8 garlic cloves. Also threw in a good quarter cup of fresh chopped basil leaves, and finished with a fresh chopped tomato just before serving. This is a quality, healthy dish with deep flavor. By doubling the liquid, the cornstarch thickening was minimal - just enough to keep it from being watery. Served it over whole wheat cous cous cooked in salt free broth, and garden fresh green beans. The little leftovers from lunch today were even better. A real keeper.
