Best Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
Really good, just a tad too sweet. I will make it again with a little less sugar.

BBQ Chicken Pizza I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Too sweet, and I even added tomato sauce to the mix and omitted the molasses. On half the pizza I added mushrooms, green pepper, and pepperoni, that was the best part. I will make this pizza again, but with mostly tomato sauce mixed with a bit of bbq, and add all the veggies I have in the fridge.

Toasti

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
My husband said it was like a vegetable omelette. I added chopped onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Next time maybe I will add some grated potato, and make it like a potato pancake. I'd like to know if this is indeed vietnamese or japanese? It was a good way to use up the cabbage I had left over from making egg rolls...

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I threw everything in there - mushrooms, corn, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, garlic powder, herbes de provence, zuchinni would have been good too. Looking for things I can make in advance for my husband to take to work that reheats well, this fits the bill...

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
I live in France, so we dont have liquid smoke, habenero peppers, hot chocolate mix, or tomatoes with chilis, and chili powder is hard to find. I made chili powder by mixing garlic powder, paprika, oregano, and cayenne pepper. I used just canned stewed tomatoes and a jalepeno pepper. I added cocoa powder and sugar to sub for the hot chocolate mix. I was going to add red wine, but the beer idea was too interesting to pass up. I don't know if this is right or wrong, but with any chili recipe I try, I just use whatever meat I have in the freezer, this time sausages and ground beef.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
It was my first from scratch pizza crust, and it was nothing special. It was not crispy. The texture was not what I expected in a pizza crust. I should have made it thinner. I did cook it for about 10 mins before adding the topping, and I brushed with garlic powder and olive oil.

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
Sautéed garlic and onion in the oil, added lots of chili powder to the chicken. Still bland, so added more garlic powder, onion powder, diced jalapeno and chili powder. The chicken never really soaked up the flavor, maybe it was the quality of the chicken. I will probably try it again and keep tweaking it, as I love the idea... maybe some cheese or breading the chicken?

Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Love the flavor of the spices together, which I doubled (even the salt, by acccident). But why do my quiches always turn out flat? I want a big fluffy one.

Company Chicken Pasta Salad with Grapes

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I made this for my bf's lunch. I grilled the chicken on the stovetop in olive oil, curry, and herbes en provence. I used basalmic vinegar and doubled the curry and cumin. I omitted the celery, and added red bellpepper, and a little fresh mushroom. Wish I had green bellpepper... Was going to use tri colored spiral pasta, but actually didnt need to in the end, as the sauce turned out dark and would have masked any color. I wonder what a french guy is going to say about grapes with chicken and pasta!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
My french boyfriend saw me coating the chicken with flour, and asked me why I wasnt using bread crumbs. He explained to me that here in France, cordon bleu is considered a meal for children, frozen and pre-prepared that they serve for school lunches. I realized I have never seen this dish offered in a restaurant here! but how can that be, because it turned out so good... my boyfriend said his friends would never believe a cordon bleu could be served as a great homecooked meal. I also baked in the oven after browning in butter and olive oil for 20 minutes at 180°celcius, its much cleaner and better appearing that way, and you can be sure it turns out cooked through. The toothpicks held in pretty good after all. I made the sauce separately.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Great way to whip up hash browns, but written as is, this recipe is bland and requires serious spicing up according to your tastes- garlic, onion or chili powder, cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes, for example.
