Chef John's Twice-Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
Great to make ahead. You can also freeze them. Any combination of cream, butter, and cheese works well to give the creamy taste and tang of cheese. Hard to ruin this recipe. Never any leftovers!

Chef John's Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I am the queen of gravy in my house and always am frantically stirring over the hot pan once the roast has come out of the oven. This recipe is a little time-consuming, but definitely worth the trouble given you get to make it ahead of time. It is truly smooth and velvety. My only modifications to the recipe were to up the quantity of turkey fat a little, to be used in the roux, and then season it very simply with salt and pepper, as is our family's taste. Excellent recipe!

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
Excellent. Others' suggestions were helpful: cooking vegetables in broth and reserving for sauce is easy and nutritious. I also used a top crust only, to cut on pastry and calories- the filling is so delicious you don't miss it. I had to increase the milk a little to obtain a proper consistency for the sauce; if not the sauce is too thick. The extra milk makes the sauce just right, not runny. Delicious with turkey or chicken. Hint: watch heated butter and onions carefully so it does not brown. Very easy and welcome on a cold winter's night!

Very good. The almond extract makes all the difference.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
Good flavour, a hit with my family. One recipe of sauce was enough, as we serve ours with gravy. Hints such as adding Worcestershire sauce and sautéing the onions are good ideas. Very fast and easy to make.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
Very good basic recipe which can be modified to suit your personal taste. Proportions are very good, except for garlic which was stronger than "basic" hummus needs to be. Gone in a flash in our house.

Chef John's Chocolate Lava Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
Very good chocolate taste.....however despite very thorough buttering of ramekins.......removal was quite difficult and ended up in less than perfect cakes. The consistency was more brownie with a slightly gooey centre....not the wonderful crunchy outside and molten inside I expected. I followed instructions to the letter.. not going to try again.

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Way too much cinnamon. I had to strain it twice as much of the cinnamon formed clumps. It tastes very much like the commercially available eggnog - nothing very special. The recipe does make a very thick and yellow eggnog, if that is to your taste. We prefer a creamier, less yolk-coloured variety.

Chickpea and Quinoa Salad with Lemon and Tahini

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
Though all the ingredients are delicious on their own....the final result was disappointing. Not a lot of great flavours come through. Even the tahini seems underwhelming. Not a repeat for us.
