Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2014
Yum! Used shortening for butter (what I had on hand) and skipped nuts (didn't have any). Also added a dash of cinnamon, 1/2c flour and 1tsp baking soda as per other reviews. Baked mine exactly 12min @ 335 for perfectly crispy edges and chewy middles :) definitely a keeper!

Chewy Chocolate Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
These are delish! Made a half batch since there's only 2 of us. Added +/- extra 1/4c. flour as per others reviews also used shortening and a few tsp water for butter (what I had on hand). I accidentally added 1/4 tsp too much salt but it was surprisingly good, a sweet slightly salty combo...so a good accident in the end! :) Used half semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 dark chocolate chips for the most deliciously chocolatey cookie ever! Important: you only bake them 9 min so you get that perfect chewy texture. Be careful not to overbake. Baked mine on parchment so I didn't have to wash the cookie sheet after and for easier removal. Definitely a keeper for the recipe box. Gonna try adding nuts next time or maybe switch chocolate chips for peanut butter chips...an awesome cookie either way!

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2014
Made thus exactly as directed (added s&p to flour) except after browning chops I deglazed pan with a splash of cooking sherry and a splash of white wine, removed pan from heat, layered as directed then covered and baked at 350 for 1 hour instead of cooking on the stovetop. I might not use 2 onions next time, but we did eat all of them so maybe I'll use 2 haha :-) Think I may skip flouring the chops next time since it doesn't seem to thicken the sauce much, seems like a step you could skip without much flavor/texture change. The flour won't stick to the chops even after browning with all the steam and moisture so it probably isn't necessary. A very delish recipe anyway. Will certainly make again, Yum!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
Placed quartered potatoes, chunked carrots and few thick slices onion in roasting pan drizzle with olive oil, s&p, and big pinch thyme. Place chicken on top, drizzle with olive oil, s&p inside & out, sprinkle with thyme. Place few slices onion in cavity with 8-10 cloves garlic chopped in half and 1 stalk celery. Baked at 425 for 1 1/2 hours rest under foil 20m (for 5.47lb bird). I'm sure this recipe is delish as written, I just wanted to cook everything together, only 1 pan to wash! :)

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
Made 1/2 recipe (1 loaf) followed directly except 2T. sugar in dough to sweeten it a bit and doubled filling as per other reviews. Also used AP flour since it was what I had on hand. Used kitchen aid and dough hook to mix dough (added a few extra tbsp flour as needed) let mixer knead dough til smooth and elastic and not sticking to sides of bowl. Oiled bowl, flipped dough to oil top. Let rise 1 hour. Rolled into 9" wide 15" rectangle spread with filling (mixed my brown sugar, cinnamon & butter) roll, place in greased loaf pan. Let rise 1 hour, bake :)

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2014
Made this almost exactly as directed but used ground turkey in place of beef. Served with red skinned mashed potatoes and corn, made for a tastier version of the frozen tv dinner. Will definitely make again, also a good substitute for a meatloaf & gravy craving :)

Chef John's Turkey Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2014
Delicious! Made mostly as directed except added a diced green pepper when browning the meat. Slightly misread the instructions and added the meat, onion and half cup water all at once, didn't seem to matter though. Served with some tater tots. Will definitely make again!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
We love this! I follow the recipe but replace the ricotta with small curd lowfat cottage cheese (personal preference). I never cook my noodles first, just let them bake in the oven. I also always "build" and refrigerate at least a couple hours before baking and serving so everything has a chance to meld together and "settle in". :-) The bolognese (meat sauce) is what really makes this sooo good. Sliced mozzarella is necessary, the shredded stuff in the bag is covered in anti-caking agent (ick) the real stuff is much tastier and stringy the way melted mozzarella should be! I also cut the recipe in half (since there's just 2 of us) and use an 8x8 or 11x11.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
Followed recipe exactly but toasted the curry before adding anything else. Sauteed onion few mins then added garlic so it didn't burn. Simmered for an hour. Chicken was tender and sauce is tasty! Served over brown rice and steamed carrots. Excited to make this again! Yummers!

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
This was surprisingly tasty! Would make a good vegetarian meal or as a side for "carnivores". I followed other reviews and cooked mine in stock. Definitely make extra onions they're the best part!! Its also worth mentioning that the sour cream or yogurt is necessary for full enjoyment :) Next time I might add some curry powder for extra flavor but good as is too.

Strawberries and Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2014
Made this for a birthday party but used the Heavenly White Cake from this site so I wouldn't have a pink cake(mens birthday cake). I did use the cream cheese frosting and the whipped cream and strawberries filling. I didn't have any but the recipients loved it!

Broccoli, Rice, Cheese, and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
Loved this! Here's what I did: used uncooked instant brown rice put uncooked rice in buttered 8x8, placed 1/2 bag frozen broccoli florets on then a few handfuls of shredded leftover turkey from thanksgiving. Mixed 2 cups homemade turkey stock, 1 cup milk, some chopped garlic, and my own homemade version of cream of soup poured that mixture over everything. Sealed the pan with foil and baked at 350 for about an hour, uncovered for the last 10-15min. Will definitely make this again, perfect for leftover chicken or turkey...yum!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
Hands down this is the absolute best pie crust EVER! Even for savory dishes like chicken pot pie. The key is super cold butter and ice water. Also, don't work it too much, that develops gluten and makes for a "Bread-ier" tougher crust: not what you want. Stir in ice water til just mixed and use cold cubed butter you'll have perfect flaky crust every time. Also love this for Apple crostata!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
My BF loved this! Followed the basic measurements but used my own method since I was using up roasted chicken. I melted the butter in a deep fry pan sauteed the carrots, celery, and onion til softened. Sprinkled in flour and cooked few more minutes. Added 2c homemade chicken stock & 1c milk since other reviewers said theirs was kinda dry. Mixed in my shredded chicken and frozen peas, let bubble & poured into pie crust. Was absolutely delicious, boyfriend had seconds and wanted thirds but was too full! I used my go-to pie crust recipe and it took this dish over the top! For 2 crusts (top & bottom) measure 2 1/2c flour and 1/2t salt into big bowl, cut in 1c COLD cubed butter til size of small peas. Add 1/2c ICE COLD water. Divide dough in half, wrap in saran keep in fridge til ready to roll= Perfect pie crust!

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
My BF loved this! I used some red wine to deglaze after sauteing the onions and used a large can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh. If you have watery sauce try undercooking your pasta and adding it to the sauce to finish cooking I do this but also added some starchy pasta water I had reserved before draining the pasta. This helps the pasta & sauce really become one and meld together :-)
