Honey-Brined Fried Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
I have had limited success with fried chicken, but I had skinless chicken breasts and needed something interesting to do with them. This caught my eye since it had such an interesting brine. WOW! The brine really was easy and did really leave a tiny hint of sweetness and certainly juiciness. I didn't have buttermilk and scrambled to create some with low-fat milk and vinegar with 1 T of butter whipped into it. That worked well and the breading was perfect (though I did cheat and add maybe 1/4 of italian bread crumbs to the mix for crunch). My breading stayed on, but my oil was a little too hot to start, so I had to flip more than once to keep from burning. Family LOVED it so much! In fact the daughter who dunks everything in Ranch dressing wished she hadn't put it on top the chicken because it was so good without it. I don't know if this would ever be a regular since it does take some prep, but on a Sunday when I have the time to do the brine and the buttermilk soak I'll remember it.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Too vinegary. And yes, I followed the recipe to the T. I'll go back to my own braised pork over this.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I almost wish I had a chili contest to enter this into! Of course being from the SW I modified it just a little. I used one pound of buffalo and one of ground beef. Instead of tomato sauce I used 2 cans of diced tomatos with fire roasted chiles, half a jar of hot salsa - though I may add the other half jar later. Then to sneak in more veggies I grated one large carrot and diced up two large ribs of celery. This is the chili recipe I've been looking for for a long time!

Acorn Squash with Apple

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
I'm making this for the first time right now, but I'm anticipating 5 stars. I love the tip on peeling the squash, but instead of a knife I used my potato peeler, which also got into the grooves really well. I did discover I'd run out of cinnamon over the holidays, so there's a little cinnamon, but I ended up using some pumpkin pie spice. I think it should add something.
