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.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
because I have a son who will only eat Hidden Valley dressing, I have been trying many recipes for homemade. I made this yesterday, with the changes posted by one reviewer, using 1/2c buttermilk, 1/2 mayo and 1/2c sourcream and increasing garlic to 1/2 tsp and my son said "pretty good" which means great! Probably even better today, I'll let you all know. Guess what!! better when it sets!Imagine!

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.

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
YES YES YES!!!!! (i added a splash of red wine with the chicken broth...ok maybe more than a splash) You have to sear the meat as John says, it gives it depth. I have also made this using herbes de provence for the seasoning

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
Excellent...First though, when you rinse this you need a very fine colander. Rinse well...then follow exact recipe, using only one can of black beans. I had to use chicken broth but other than that followed exactly. Really liked this! I can see how versatile this could be.

Italian Subs - Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
The sub sauce recipe rocks! I make it in a jar and let it set in the fridge. I use all ingredients listed but put shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and sliced onion on roll first, then pour sauce on, add meat and top with cheese..Excellent!..If you let them sit wrapped in plastic in fridge for a few hours...even better! Hubby makes me add mayo to his, but not necessary

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!

King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
We really liked this. I used a package of taco seasoning mix because it was all I had on hand and it came out great. The idea of the pepper jack cheese kicked it up a notch.

Savory Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This was a great roast pork. I used the tip of using olive oil and putting all the seasonings in the oil, then smearing on top and sides. I used a digital thermometer and took it out at 145. It was perfect after sitting for 5-10 minutes

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.
