Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
I have been making this for many years and love it. It's easy, quick to put together and delicious. One usually has all the ingredients already in the pantry to boot. I've also "fancied it up" by adding a little wine, Worchestershire sauce, tarragon or whatever strikes my fancy at the time. It's pretty much a foolproof recipe as long as you take care not to overcook the chops. By the way, this is also an excellant way to cook chicken. I'm just sayin'. :-)

Garlicky Quinoa and Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
As written, I was torn between 3 & 4 stars. If I could have given it a 3 1/2 I would have. I felt that it was basically pretty bland. Also, I wasn't too trilled with the mustard taste coming through which surprised me as I thought that I would have had a problem with that much lemon, but it gave it a nice, bright note without being too overpowering. I ended up tossing in some dried cranberries, sautéed orange sweet pepper and red onion and chopped walnut and almonds that I fist toasted in a skillet. I'll definitely make this again, but with my modifications.

Marinated Grilled Chicken II

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
I've been making a version of this for years. I bought a bottle of store brand, reduced fat Caesar dressing a while back (I know, what was I thinking?)It was HORRIBLE! Of course I couldn't throw out a nearly full bottle of dressing, so there it sat in my fridge for months. One day when I knew that I wouldn't have time to fuss over dinner prep. I took 4 chicken leg quarters, put them into a zip lock bag with some chopped fresh onion and garlic. I looked at the bottle of dressing and said "what the heck?" Poured some into the bag and let them marinate in the fridge for a few hours. Popped them into a 375 degree oven for about 45-60 mins. and OMG were they good! So now, when that lousy dressing is on sale, I make sure that I by couple of bottles. I just have to warn people not to put it on their salad!

Beef and Cabbage Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2014
OMG! I just finished a huge bowl of this and would have had more if I wasn't so stuffed! I've been cooking for the last four and a half decades and have made more than my share of stews. I would have to say that this is the best darned pot of stew that I've ever made! Now, I can't stand folks who rate a recipe 5 stars and then go on to tell you the myriad changes they made to the original. Submit your own recipe if your version is so terrific. That being said, LOL, here are the minimal changes that I made. For health reasons I used reduced sodium broth and salt free tomato sauce. I also found a salt free onion soup mix and used a tablespoon of that instead of the cube of salt-laden bullion. I also left out the celery as I didn't have any and caramelized the onions to add a bit more depth of flavor. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. Oh, I added a bit of flour towards the end as I am not partial to thin stew. Even with the salt reduced to almost nothing, the taste was wonderful. All the flavors melded together without any one ingredient outshining the others. All in all, a very easy, flavorful stew for a chilly or raw fall or winter night. Thank you Paul for submitting.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
This was pretty darned good. It actually came out better than I thought it would. I inadvertently changed it by grabbing marjoram instead of oregano, but that didn't change it too much. The chicken (skin on) came out beautifully crisp. The potatoes, on the other hand, did not have the consistency of fried but rather roasted potatoes with a nice crust to them. I happen to like them that way so I wasn't disappointed. As for the comments that it was bland, you get out what you put in my darlings. This isn't Indian or Szechuan food. It's just an easy chicken and potatoes meal using a nice mix of herbs. If you want more spice, adjust the amount and/or type of seasoning you're using. It's a very adaptable recipe.
