Grama's Peppery Parsnips

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
Great way to prepare parsnips. However, I find it unnecessary to boil first. I cut them into slim French fry size pieces, and they cook up fine in a combo of olive oil and butter. Takes maybe 12 to 15 minutes. A few will get very dark brown, but this is delicious, and when I make them I try to make sure that some are getting dark brown. Some thyme leaves are a good addition. This is a superb way to fix parsnips and a good way to start cycling potatoes out of the menu rotation. Great with fish.

Cabbage Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
The flavor and healthfulness were great, but to me it doesn't work to put all the ingredients into the pot at once. The barley needs 1 1/2 hours, but this is way too long to cook the cabbage and carrots. The cabbage turned to mush. As other reviewers have said, this is a great way to use leftover ham.

Classic Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
Made this for the homeless shelter last night. 12 pounds of meat for 40 guys made into 4 loaves. It was great. The guys are always appreciative, but last night they said "thank you" with feeling. One gentleman requested meatloaf 3 times a week. I served the meatloaf with Chef John's mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes. Comfort food for sure. I cut back a tad on the cayenne, pepper and salt, but otherwise followed the ingredient list very closely. The food-processed veggies are a genius addition. Baked in the oven for 1 1/2 hours and the meat loaves were perfect. Thank you Chef John.

Tortellini Bacon Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
My favorite broccoli salad. But I did tweak it a little bit. I blanch the broccoli by throwing it into the water with the tortellini for one minute (when the tortellini is almost done) and then drain tortellini and broccoli together, and rinse under cold water to cool. I add 1 large stalk of celery, finely diced. I use a thick sliced applewood bacon for this recipe, and cut into 3/4 inch pieces. For the dressing, after frying the bacon and draining off the grease, I add a little bit of water (3 tbsp?) to deglaze the bacon pan, and stir to scrape up all the tasty bits. To this I add 1/2 tbsp. horseradish and a scant 1/4 c of bottled poppyseed dressing. This salad is a flavor explosion.

Roasted Cauliflower and Leek Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
Thank you submitter. Cauliflower and leeks are a good combination. I made it with veggie broth (homemade, used the leek tops, parsley stems, cauliflower cores chopped up - just simmered all this while the cauliflower was roasting), used parsley instead of chervil, added 2 tsp of sugar, added a few scallions that were in the fridge, used the blender to puree about a third of it. It was delicious. As for the leeks, I used the white and light green parts, and the soup was very pretty - white, light green plus dark green from the parsley and scallion tops.

Corn Casserole II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
I made this for the homeless shelter - they loved it and wanted seconds. I quadrupled the recipe and it was enough for 35 people. I made only very minor changes. I sauteed a little minced onion (1/4 cup for the quadrupled recipe) in the butter while it was melting, and added a little black pepper. This recipe works great for a crowd, but you do need to increase the baking time to about an hour and fifteen minutes total.

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
This soup was great. I love barley and the combination of barley and chick peas is excellent. The recipe looks great as written, but I made a couple changes, since I am not vegetarian. 1) Used beef broth - Swansons 2) Used fresh garlic and lots of fresh parsley 3) added one pound of browned, thinly sliced sweet Italian sausage. Also, I had no regular paprika on hand, and used smoked paprika, which went well with all the other flavors. Note: with the addition of sausage, there is no need to add extra salt.

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
I made this last night for 30 guests at the homeless shelter. Doubled the recipe and served warm in bowls with vanilla ice cream. The men loved it. This is a terrific recipe to make for a crowd, and I wouldn't hesitate to make it for a really large crowd as long as you have the oven space. Prep was really quick, only about 30 minutes for double recipe. The men at the homeless shelter are accustomed to having cookies for dessert, and a warm homemade dessert put smiles on their faces, especially since yesterday was our first cool fall day. Thank you for posting this recipe.

Curry Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
Super recipe. I have made this with broccoli or shaved cauliflower and both are equally excellent. Since I don't measure when I cook, my proportions may differ from the recipe. However, these flavors are terrific together. I use (oscar meyer) turkey bacon and saute the onion with the bacon. Then I deglaze the saute pan with a little water and add this small amount of liquid to the dressing mixture. Also I really like a few finely diced raw green onions, especially when making this with cauliflower, since it adds some green color. As for the fruit and nuts, I have found that craisins, dried cherries or dried mixed fruits work great; and sunflower seeds, slivered almonds or chopped pecans are equally good. Thank you, Harriet.
