Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2014
Excellent, flavorful chicken! I did everything identical to the recipe except the cooking method: I cooked the chicken in the pan with the melted butter on the stove. Everything else was the same. The chicken ended up extremely flavorful--many compliments all around!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
This was a very interesting, complex sauce! Next time, though, I think I'll definitely add more garlic, and use my immersion blender to smooth out the sauce before adding the meatballs. Think I'll also add milk to the meatball mixture; the meatballs were good, but not super tender. Amazing sauce though--I had seconds!

Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
I applaud you, Chef John, for giving us a recipe for something homemade, chocolate, using ingredients we keep around the house, and finished in less than 10 minutes. Maybe I shouldn't applaud you--I can tell you this will be made many times, and my waistline may protest, but with the ease and convenience of this cake, who cares? Yum.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
Certainly not bad! Nice crunchy exterior and juicy interior. I seasoned the chops with salt and pepper before putting them in the pan, and I'm certainly glad I did. It gave the pork chops a nice salty-sweet flavor that I don't think could have been obtained from just the salt in the sauce. Which reminds me--there wasn't nearly enough sauce. Next time, I'd probably use the Sauteed Apples recipe from this site, because it has much more sauce with it.

Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
Very yummy, flavorful rice--nice change of pace to your average white rice! I think the only thing I would do differently would be to add in green onions along with the other veggies instead of just white onion; it would add another interesting flavor as well as some color.

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
Really juicy. Really flavorful. Way too sour. It definitely does good on the lemon flavor, but it does almost too good. It was sour enough to be almost inedible. My husband suggested marinating next time; I am wary that will make it worse. Probably won't make again.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
Wow. These pork chops were absolutely phenomenal. I only did one thing slightly differently: I used a little bit of olive oil in the pan to help the chops and veggies saute. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. My husband said they were the best chops I've ever made, and I'm inclined to agree with him. Even my son had half a chop for himself, and he hates pork chops!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
Excellent corned beef recipe! This was my first time making corned beef, and it turned out very well! I didn't use any carrots, and instead of using beer, I used beef broth. The potatoes definitely weren't mushy; everything was just right. The meat wasn't fall-apart tender, but we don't like it too tender, so it was just right for us.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
Very good flavors. Not enough sauce, though. If you're just serving chicken it's fine, but if you're serving over pasta, double the sauce. You'll be glad you did.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
Absolutely epic pancakes. I only changed two things: for one, I added a little bit of lemon juice to the milk ahead of time and let it sour for a couple of minutes while melting the butter. Two, instead of just lightly oiling the pan, I used about a tablespoon or so of oil for each pancake (I made 4 large ones). Lightly crunchy exterior, extremely fluffy interior. My husband thinks I'm approaching pancake perfection!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
Wow. That's pretty much all I have to say. It takes a long time and requires a lot of chopping and a lot of spices, but oh so worth it in the end. My husband, a born-and-bred Texan, was in love with this chili. It made the house smell amazing while it cooked. I cut out half of the cayenne and removed the ribs and seeds from the 2 peppers before cooking, and I liked the spice level, but hubby said it was a bit too mild. Just adjust the spiciness to your own taste; the flavor is all there with this one.

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
Not my favorite. Pretty bad, actually. Don't think I'll use the butter next time--the coating slid off during baking and didn't crisp up properly. Tasted soggy on the outside and breadcrumbs came off on our hands. Will modify later and post another review after modifying.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2014
Really delicious recipe! However, I found that the egg mixture wasn't quite enough for that much bread. I tried to make enough mixture for 8 pieces of bread, but could only coat 6. That being said, I did leave one piece of bread in there to soak for a minute or two, and that piece soaked up a lot! If you're saturating the bread instead of just dipping it, you'll need more egg mixture. I also like another reviewer's idea of sprinkling cinnamon right onto the bread. I whisked after each slice and still ran out of cinnamon in the mix.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
Excellent, excellent recipe! I used a little too much oil, which turned out all right because it made extra gravy. The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is because although the gravy was excellent and the steaks were nice and tender, they were a little bland. A little extra Worcestershire would probably fix that. All in all, a great recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
I thought it was epic. My family--not so much. My husband doesn't like potato soup and I was trying to change his mind. No go; he thought it was bland. My oldest son is too young to eat soup without spilling it all over himself, and he doesn't like meat. So I pulled potatoes out of the soup and mashed them up for him. My younger son is too young for solids you have to chew much, so lots of broth for him. Oh well. Can't make again with that many bad reviews--lots of leftovers for me. Maybe I'll make it again one day just for myself.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
Best sugar cookies ever: they were soft like pillows and oh so addictive! Can't make too many of these--I'd eat all of them up! They even stayed soft after a couple of days! I didn't put any sugar on top, but they didn't really need the extra sugar. Wonderful recipe!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
Very different as far as stuffed mushrooms go, but delicious! I could almost eat the filling by itself, but it's epic with the mushrooms!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
I've made this recipe many times and loved it every time! Instead of a whole chicken, I'll usually use bone-in dark meat pieces. Two nights ago, I baked two pounds of chicken thighs and scaled down the recipe accordingly. Don't be afraid to be liberal with your seasonings--they really make this dish amazing!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
I've made this twice already, using Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust for the crust. (Ironically, my grandma's name is Ruth!) The second time, I made a very deep dish pie and nearly doubled the filling to feed six hungry people, using leftover Thanksgiving turkey. My mother-in-law said I rivaled Marie Callender!
