Great taste and great chewy texture. I could eat the entire batch...as with most biscuits, best fresh out of the oven!

Classic Chicken and Rice Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
I used the Fast Chicken Base with some meaningful changes:Great Base Recipe...several changes I made: 1)Used bones with meat only-No skins..less fat-doesn't need it for flavor 2) NO WATER-much better flavor without 3) Added 2 extra carrots(halved then chopped) and Sauteed ALL vegetables starting with onions,5', then added carrots and celery, stirring on low-mid heat 15 minutes..this roasts the veggies and adds amazing flavor..I also added the thyme in the beginning. 4) Add Pacific Chicken Stock, boil, add bones, boil then LOW simmer,mostly covered 30'. 5) Strain and discard everything but broth. Go to Chicken with rice recipe.... For the Soup: 1) Added 1 cup short grain organic brown rice to broth and cook covered on lowest setting 35-40 minutes...till almost done...add 3 chopped carrots(split lengthwise and chop, thinner as you get to the fatter end) and 1 stalk chopped celery. Add carrots and celery with 20' to go on rice 2) Cut skinned de-boned chicken(from making the stock) into 1" pieces, and add along with 1 cup of frozen peas to the base...bring to simmer, cover, turn off heat and set aside 15'...this prevents the chicken from overcooking. While waiting, toast a sliced Ciabatta roll drizzled with olive oil at 375 until lightly browned. I do not add any parsley or pepper. Skim to remove any surface oil and "scum"..nasty word but the stuff floating on top, basically. Enjoy!!

Simple Chicken Brine

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
What a nice, simple recipe. I cut the ingredients in half, except for the salt, which I reduced a bit more. I marinated the skin on,bone in split breasts 2 hours. One BIG difference over prior marinading was poking my small paring knife into each breast10-12 places to help the marinade...425 on roast 35 minutes, then cooled a bit, then covered and placed in cooling oven...45 minutes ...and STILL they were tender!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Excellent recipe...Mom, Dad, and 7 year old daughter loved it...I seared them in the pan for 2-3 minutes per side, cut them in half(still raw in the middle) and added 1/4 cup of HOT water and covered, 2 minutes. The water reduces to nothing and frees the browned turkey, making a nice sauce.

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
Chicken!! I used this recipe for chicken and it's great! I substituted chicken breast for beef, patted down the chicken with the "rub", then cut the chicken into 1/2" cubes and added it to the marinade. I cooked the chicken in the marinade, then used a slotted spoon to serve. Leaving any cooked leftover chicken in the maridade overnight really enhances the flavor! I love the onion and cilantro topping. I did not try the sauce or cheese. I used lemons instead of limes as that's all I had. I would guess limes are even better, especially with the cilantro/onion mix. I used smoked paprika, which I often use instead of regular paprika. Twenty seconds in the microwave works perfectly for the corn tortillas. I added some corn for additional sweetness. Enjoy!

My one and 2 serving are available under whole grain waffles 1, and wgw 2. Thanks!

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
Lower Fat Adaption: For the stock, use 1 skinned Ch breast carcass, along with the 2-3 quarts of chicken stock(made from "Better Than Buillion Chicken" base) and 1 tsp thyme,cooked 10'. Separately,saute 5-6 thinly(1/4")sliced carrots(we love carrots),2 chopped onions,and 2 chopped stalks of celery in 3-4tbsp of good olive oil, 7-10'. I find adding a splash of a nice riesling or other nice white wine midway adds a nice flavor during sauteeing. Separately, take the 2 chicken breast halves(from the ch.breast carcass used for the stock) and cut to 1/2 thickness. Tenders usually separate away as well. Add to a covered steamer(medium heat) for no more than 2 1/2' per side, then let cool 5'. Add the sauteed veggies to the chicken stock while the breasts are cooling and simmer uncovered 5-10' (remove carcass).The reason for steaming the breasts is twofold:1)it cooks them quickly while preserving juciness and 2)they are shreddable easily by hand once cooked this way. I find chopping doesn't deliver the same result. Go figure! Add 12-16 oz.fresh(NOT DEHYDRATED!!)pasta to the chicken stock/veggie mix, along with the hand pulled chicken breast and the chopped parsley. Simmer 2-3'max(until the pasta is to doneness),salt and pepper to taste and serve. If you prefer more chicken, use more. This recipe has much less saturated fat because it doesn't use bones or dark meat or skin. You have to be careful not to oversteam or overheat the shredded chicken breast. I did not add the peas, but that

Caldo Verde (Portuguese Green Soup)

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I think this is an excellent, easy recipe. I made several changes: 1) I used chicken broth(instead of water) made from "better than bouillon" concentrate, 2) I used red chard, and 3) I boiled the (yokon gold)potatoes first, then sliced and added them to the already cooked onion and garlic. I used a large onion and 2 cloves of garlic. and 4) I used a lean,Niman Ranch ham instead of the linguica. I pureed the potatoes, garlic and onions after cooking 6-7 minutes, then added the ham, and cooked 5-6 minutes. I steamed the chard and had it as a side dish, to allow family members to add if desired. This was YUMMY!

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
This is an absolutely terrific recipe. It's simple, easy, fast and good tasting. The baking is a nice twist as I usually cook meatballs on the stove. This is cleaner and works really well. Next time I'll add a bit of parmesan and see how that goes!

Smoked Salmon Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Great, simple and fun! Use a high quality smoked salmon. I used Ducktrap Farms. I did't have a bamboo roller so I used Saran Wrap in place of the bamboo. Don't overdo the cuke(remove seeds), avocado and salmon(chopped). IMPORTANT: No need to presoak rice 4 h. Simply rinse well, drain and follow other cooking instructions. I cut this recipe in half for 3 rolls! Yummy and quick. Tip: Wet the tip of your knife before each cut of the rollup. You can replace the salmon with crabmeat or tuna as well.

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Really simple and delicious recipe. I cooked the veggies a little longer and added 3tbsp of tomato paste. The acidity from the red wine vinegar helps the flavor go from good to great but add carefully to taste.

Beef Barley Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
This is an excellent recipe. I made a few small changes. I added a 28oz can of chopped tomatoes and left out the 1 c water. I precooked the barley in 1 c beef stock(use "better than bouillon" a great product)for 15'. I left out the balsamic as the stew was already very sweet(muir glen tomatoes) and I left out the flour/water. It did'nt need any thickening. DEELICIOUS!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
FAT FREE SUGGESTIONS. I made this using the recipe and lofat sour cream and it was GREAT, and with FAGE 0% Fat free greek yoghurt and it was GREAT as well. I'm always interested in eliminating fat from my diet and the FAGE did that really well. It's a great, flavorful substitute for sour cream in many recipes. It won't separate because the whey has been removed.

Roasted Beet Wedges

This is a nice simple recipe. I didn't have fresh rosemary so I put some dried rosemary in water in a small tin foil pouch next to the beets. Next time I'll cook the tops as well. mmmmm good!
