Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
This is a winner with everyone. I skipped the worcetershire sauce and I'm sure it wasnt missed. Chicken base instead of the beef bouillon(all I had) and smoked polish sausage in place of andouille (couldnt find). Crab meat was 15.99 lb so I skipped but I kept everything else the same. The roux took about an hour but I was chopping veggies and stirring it in between so it wasnt bad but I'm sure it made the difference. I used frozen okra so I skipped the step where you cook seperate in vinegar. I just threw it in near the end. Added shrimp at the very end. I had to use a 28oz can of crushed tomatoes cause I didnt have any other and I really thought the whole thing was great. Couldnt find file powder, I have no idea how it would have made this any better.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
I used the recipe right up to where it says canned spinach, I just couldnt do it. I used a bag of fresh spinach which I sauteed with the fresh mushrooms and garlic in a drizzle of olive oil. I put that in the bottom of the casserole dish and then followed the rest of the recipe. I found that 2C of mozzerella was too much for us, so I used 1C. I also used about 2 Tbsp white wine in place of the lemon juice. I added 1 Tbsp granulated garlic to the sauce along with the italian seasoning.I cut up some cooked leftover chicken breast and served everything over fettucini noodles. We loved it. Thanks for the great idea.

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
Hubby loved it. Little salty. Next time I'll use low salt soy. Thank you contributor Karen who gave the hint about soaking the beef in a zip lock bag overnight with 1/2 tsp baking soda. It works great! I also suggest using all sesame oil instead of vegetable to deepen the flavor and I have tried it with added vegetables, like mushrooms, green peppers and snow peas.

Chef John's Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
Excellent! I used swiss instead of gruyere, and a 10 oz bag of fresh spinach, but I kept the rest of the ingredients the same, even the pinch of nutmeg. Used the microwave, melted the butter and onion and garlic for 2 min in a 2 qt casserole dish, threw in torn fresh spinach until wilted. Mixed in rest of the ingredients and microwaved 3 min more. Stirred and microwaved 4-5 min more until all melted together. I have a high powered microwave so it didnt take long. It came out excellent and was melted and gooey. Taste was mmmmwwwwaaa!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
I read the reviews first (ofcourse)and cut the butter and salt by half. Everything else I kept the same. I used (4)bone-in chicken quarters,so I baked it 30 minutes covered with foil and 40 minutes uncovered, basting every 15 minutes. I checked it with a meat thermometer and it was very done by then. The skin was nicely carmelized and the chicken was moist. My son raved about how much he loved it. I will make it again and use boneless breast just to see how that works. I covered the pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up.

Turkey Carcass Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
I make this every year after thanksgiving. I skip the worcestershire sauce tho. never used it. I also add a heaping spoon of chicken base. You can add almost any combination of veggies, I use a large bag of frozen mixed vegetables in addition to the celery, carrots and onion. Havent tried tomatoes or cabbage, but I'm sure it would be good also. I also add a 1-lb bag of wide egg noodles 10 minutes before the end of cooking.

General Tsao's Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
The flavor of the sauce was very good. After reading the other reviews, I cut the cornstarch to 1/4C and still had to add water in small amounts to get to the right consistancy. Now I wish I had seen the crushed red pepper flakes instead of the dried chili peppers. I used some mild dried chili peppes which I soaked for a few minutes in boiling water before chopping coarsely. The flavor of the sauce was great, but not real hot due to the type of chili pepper I bought and the peppers were hard to chew. Next time I will try the crushed red pepper flakes, or if anyone has some tips on how to use the dried, I would love to hear from you.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Excellent! I added chopped celery with the onion and carrot, threw in some fresh spinach, had to use (2) 28 oz cans tomatoes with garlic, topped with parmesan cheese before serving. Mama Mia!!MMMwwwaaaa!Get some of those soft potato rolls to go with it. Don't skip the red wine, it gives the soup its body. You can even add a little more than called for, just be sure to taste as you add. I also used the dry cheese tortellini because I think it holds up better.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Good taste. Great gravy. 5 lb roast took 8 hrs on low. Unsure how it could have gone 22 hrs. Maybe my crock pot is hotter. Used 1/2 pkg of onion soup mix after reading reviews. Threw in carrots, small onions and potatoes.
