Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I liked this recipe. Pretty basic, no wow flavors but really quick and easy to follow. I added red pepper flakes for some heat because that is what we like. Had no celery so I replaced with some fresh mushrooms. Maybe could have used some white wine at some point or sesame oil for additional flavor? but overall, easy and quick basic recipe.

Vegan Split Pea Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
I made this today and it is wonderful. I am only going to give it 4 stars because I did make a change. I added Goya's ham flavoring which really gave it that smoky flavor but NO real ham. I will try without next time, but this was really delicious. I am sure great both ways.

Gourmet Guacamole

Just made this for my daughter to take to the beach. Tasted great, and so quick. Added just a little lime juice to keep that green color.

I add 2 cans of beef broth and 1/2 package of onion soup mix. Add back the beef and add one bay leaf. Simmer for 3 hours on low boil. Cool and slice beef against the grain. Best served the next day with garlic mashed potatos.

President Ford's Braised Eye Round Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
Loved this recipe. I have to give 4 stars because I used an eye round roast and browned in a cast iron skillet with oil and I stuck garlic cloves into the roast. Once browned I added sliced onions and spices with the wine & broth and put in the oven at 325 for 1 1/2 hours. It came out so good. Strained the juice and made a wonderful gravy with some flour and gravy master.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
OK my intent to make as posted was very geniune, but never came to that point. The outcome of the dish was delicious though. I ended up slicing my beef sirloin on the grain and marinating in the 2 T soy sauce indicated with the ginger and garlic. But I then I did not know how to folow the exact recipe so I did the following: to the marinating meat I added 1 tsp sesame oil and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes Then I stir fried adding one can of beef broth mixed with 2 T of cornstarch and NOT the flour indicated on the receipe Added broccoli and let simmer. It was fabulous, but not as posted but I wanted to share none the less. I used all of the listed ingredients, just did it my way; I will give it 4 stars for ingredients but really needs the red pepper flakes.

This was really good. Did not have ripe fresh tomatoes so I used unsalted diced from the can. Added more garlic and more red pepper because we like it spicy spicy!

French Onion Soup VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Really simple, really good on a winter night. Used only one bay leaf and a pinch of thyme. Have made it with and without the flour and either way is good. My daughter loves this!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Pretty basic dough and easy to prepare. I will say that leaving the yeast to dissolve in the water for at least 10 minutes makes a difference. I also added garlic powder to the flour. I also let rise for about 1 hour. Very versatile basic recipe and can be modified to your liking.

Very versatile, basic and easy to make crust. I use 2 1/2 cups flour and add King Arthur Pizza dough seasoning along with some garlic powder. Comes out same every time which to me means the recipe works.

Coq au Vin alla Italiana

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Wonderful winter night meal. I will give it five stars because the flavor was really there. Only thing I changed is just used less chicken. Cooked the sausage first, chicken then vegetables and combined everything together and simmered on low heat for about 1 hour. Better even the 2nd day -- served over garlic mashed potatoes

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
We really liked this recipe, the only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because the browning process was great on the first side that was face down on the cookie sheet but when flipped the side on the cooking sheet did not brown very evenly --hardly at all. If I pressed down on the sandwich once flipped that seemed to help.

Spaghetti Squash Saute

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I have tried many of the pizza dough recipes on this site to get the "perfect pizza parlor" crust. there have been several that were not too good and some that were great. But in the end This pizza recipe by far is the best. I made no changes to the actual ingredients. I only added a tsp per cup of flour of King Arthur Pizza seasoning that a friend recommended to me. But the crust was great with or without the seasoning. (fabulous with the seasoning and I highly recommend it!). I played around with the cooking temps and time and found 500 degrees bottome shelf for 5 minutes for pre cook and 450 for about 15-20 on the next shelf up with toppings. I am a happy girl...now I move onto toppings. thanks to all of your responses. This site helped me in my quest for a great homemade crust.

Jordan Marsh Style Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I grew up with Jordan Marsh blueberry muffins. What a treat they were. Unfortunately, this recipe does not even come close to the originals.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
I make a similar version of this by using my crockpot. I put three or four skinless chickent breasts in first, then can of chicken broth, jar of medium salsa, can of corn (drained), can of black beans (drained)and can of fat free refried beans. Sprinkle in some chili powder, cayenne pepper and cumin. Cook on low for 6 hours; pull chicken out and shredd and put back in for one more hour on low. Hearty and healthy. Freezes well too. Not six cans since I use fresh chicken, but close!

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
This beef stew is very good. I will say I am not a big fan of stew meat and used sirlion beef tips instead. I did not have boiling onions so i used a whole onion cut up. I also add a few tsp of gravy master for some additional flavor and two bay leafs. I add the vegetables and potato at the last hour or so of cooking. Freezes very well too.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This marinade was very good. I marinated almost 10 hours or so. Besides the great flavor, I think grilling vs baking or broiling really adds to it. I will use this recipe again for sure.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
this was really very good. I used some homemade pesto since this time of year it is very easy to buy very fresh basil at the local farm stand and make your own. I will next time boil some pasta to collect the delicious sauce the chicken makes and use with additional pesto. Already thinking about making this again next week once I can go to the farmstand over the weekend! Highly recommend.

Dave's Ultimate Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
I give this four stars as this is a great base recipe and I added my own touch. One clove of minced garlic, extra hot sauce as we like it hot, some diced red onion and some lime juice. Not a fan of cilantro so I left it out but may chop a real small amount next time. The key is to let it all set in the refrig for a few hours. Great with multigrain chips and beer with lime!
