Chef John's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
Wonderful. Used bone in chicken breast; skinless as I do not like the skin. Everything else same. Great flavor.

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.

Gourmet Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
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.

Spicy Lime Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Delicious, added some sea salt as my cajun spice mix had no salt. Grilled on the stovetop. Also grilled thick slices of red onions to go along.

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Substituted fat free for the mayo, sour cream, cream cheese but not the romano cheese. Used the real thing freshly grated at my favorite deli. So worth the splurge. Used a little extra and sprinkled on top so it browned and had a little stronger cheese flavor. Great recipe...

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Very Good. I thought it was going to be a little bit more creamy but the flavor was great. Did use a little more chicken broth. Wonderful to use basil grown from our garden. Definately something I would make again, may even add roasted vegetables next time.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
This salsa is delicious and great over fish or with chips. All of my guests loved it. Only change was to limit cilantro to 1T max but that is a personal preference as I am not a fan of cilantro. Great salsa to bring to a party.

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.

Krystal's Perfect Marinade for BBQ or Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
This was very good; made as printed with no changes. I let the chicken marinate over 4 hours and used chicken thighs and legs. The marinade is a strong one and I thought the darker meat would be better. I think I would use this on sirloin steak tips or a flank steak as well.

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

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.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

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.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
This was very good. Only by mistake did I make a few changes...all of the vegetables sauteed fine, but in another pot I had the broth simmering and I added everything plus all spices including nutmeg. Once all of the vegetables had simmered I let them cool overnight in the pot. (i wake up early!) After they had cooled I pureed with my immersion blender, added milk and stored in the refrigerator for the week. Very good. Did not use parsley, had none that was fresh.

Jewish Grandma's Best Beef Brisket

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I make a version of this; I brown the brisket and remove. With the drippings I then, sautee chopped onion, 2 cloves garlic chopped, 1 cup chopped mushrooms and 2 chopped carrots. 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.

Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Very good. I also roasted the potato and squash before it all went into the pot with onions and garlic. Used veggie broth since I had no chicken broth on hand so I left out the bouillon. Next time will use chicken broth. Used a dash of cayenne pepper because I always spice my soup with cayenne. Good comfort food and will keep for the regular rotation of soups.

Sweet and Spicy Soup with Black-Eyed Peas and Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
Made this last night and honestly made adjustments simply because of what I had on hand vs. going to the store. I used 2 cans of black beans drained, 1/4 can diced tomatoes, oven roasted fresh sweet potato along with the red pepper in a little olive oil, gave it some extra fire roasted taste. Skipped the mustard, onion, and garlic powder and added a little extra garlic. Very tasty, something I would definately make again because I usually have all on hand. Would be good served with some brown rice.
