Grilled Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2004
Oh wow! The onions are FABULOUS! My two medium-large onions took a little longer than I expected - 90 mins at 375 in the oven. BUT, it was worth the wait! I really liked GRUVNGYRL's suggestion, so I sliced and buttered four 1.5 inch pieces of French bread, arranged them in a Pyrex dish, plopped the cooked onions on top, grated some extra-sharp Cheddar and some mozzerella all over, then baked them til they were bubbling and browned (about 10 mins). Absolutely DELICIOUS! With the bread and cheese, this makes an excellent meal. Thank you SO much, Linda!

Chicken with Mushrooms, Prosciutto, and Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
Wow. Even though there are one or two things I will do differently next time, this was AMAZING. I used chicken breasts that I had pounded to an even thickness, and wrapped them in 3 slices of prosciutto that I secured with toothpicks. I used a turkey baster to moisten the chicken and chestnut mushrooms throughout the baking time (they were still just a touch too dry though). The cream sauce is absolutely fantastic - the flavors of the chicken and prosciutto juices are so subtle yet SO insanely flavorsome. I could drink it like soup... This recipe is so easy to make yet it looks and tastes like you spent all day on it. Thanks so much, Tiffuhny!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
There really isn't much to say that hasn't been said before. This really is a great recipe! Apart from topping it with sliced jalapenos, I made it exactly as directed, and it was great! (Personally, I like adding the diced tomatoes in addition to the salsa. It just gives it an extra fresh, zingy flavor.) The second time I made it, I used El Paso refried beans, and they were much MUCH saltier than the Meijer brand beans I used the first time. Despite this, it still got gobbled up at Husband's work's potluck. I think this is going to be my staple potluck contribution. Thanks!

Asian Turkey Barbecue on Sesame Scallion Toasts

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
I needed to use up a couple of cups of Christmas turkey, so this recipe was perfect. I was really surprised how much Husband liked it! The flavors are quite unique, and work well together. I really don't understand how anyone can think this tastes like regular barbecue... Anyway, thanks!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2006
This is the first thing I have ever made in a crockpot!! I used a 2.5 pound top round (no point in anything bigger for just the two of us), and it turned out very tender, but just a little bit dry. Husband enjoyed it but said he would have liked some veggies - carrots, shallots - in with it too. I get kind of annoyed when people make comments like "If you didn't like this, you didn't make it right," but, come on - can 2500 decent reviews be wrong?!!? I'll be experimenting with this next week! Thanks!

Spiced Pickled Beets

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
These are delicious! Personally, I double up on the spices, but they definitely get better and more flavorsome the longer you leave them! The onion tastes absolutely fantastic too. Thanks so much, Bea!

Mike's Favorite Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
A true classic... And so what if it seems basic and/or obvious to some people? All cooks have to start somewhere, even if it's boiling an egg or making grilled cheese... Anyway, if you want to gourmet this up a little, try the 'Greek Grilled Cheese' recipe on this site. Super awesome!! (Oh, and if you're interested in dropping a few calories, make your grilled cheese the British way - toast your bread, top with cheese, then throw it under the broiler until the cheese is brown and bubbly. Yum!)

Meatball Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
Delicious! I omitted the parsley (we don't like it), added a couple of tbsps of very finely chopped onion (was in the fridge, and needed using up), and I made it with some nice plump Hoagie rolls (the French baguettes at the store were very thin and rather sorry-looking). Was very pleased with the results. Thanks, BIGGUY728!

Carne Con Chilies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
Outstanding! The only change I made was to use a small can of sliced mild jalapenos, and a shake of red pepper flakes (I can't bring myself to prepare fresh chiles since I got chile juice in my eye a few years ago). The tomatillo sauce, though amazingly delicious, was still a little too spicy for me but Husband thought it was just right. I'm going to make this again but with strips of chicken breast. Fantastic recipe! Thanks so much!

Bill's Fried Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
Ok, I admit I was skeptical. I really didn't see how fried bacon could be improved upon. Wow, was I wrong! This is unbelievably delicious. I made it exactly as stated the first time, and loved it. The next time I upped the garlic powder, and decreased the paprika - outstanding!! Thanks, Whats His Face, and Bill!! (PS, Bill's Bacon is magnificent in a grilled cheese sandwich. I made it using the quick and easy 'Bachelor Grilled Cheese' recipe from this site. Holy cow! Delicious!!)

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
Ok, well Husband is enthusiastically scoffing these down as I type... I'm no fan of wings but he is, and he says they are defintely 5 stars! I followed others' advice and baked them for about 45mins @ 350f (turning and basting halfway through), then turned the heat up to 400f for 10mins, basting halfway through. Awesome recipe! Thanks so much, Kelly!

Stuffed Hot Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
Husband and I are complete opposites when it comes to peppers and spicy food: I'm a complete wimp; he can take anything! As I was making these just for him, I added a very generous slosh of hot sauce. Also, I used Parmesan instead of Romano (I didn't want to buy a whole block just for this recipe). I would definitely make this again. Thanks, Russ! (PS, I needed 8oz of B. Evan's Italian sausage to stuff the 6 peppers. There's no way 1/3c would have been enough)

Grilled Cheese Sandwich on Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
Really delicious. The gouda is yummy, but the tomato and onion is great with any cheese (my personal favorite is Bulgarian feta). Thanks!

Sushi-Inspired Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
I absolutely LOVED this! I used wasabi powder because that's what was in the cupboard, ground ginger (ditto), and added both a little at a time until it was how I wanted it. Also, I didn't need 1/2c of mayo - just a couple of heaped tbsps. I used the tuna salad to top a couple of split toasted buttered English muffins - the contrasting textures worked extremely well. I really really enjoyed this, and can't wait to make it again for lunch tomorrow! Thanks! (PS, I did indeed make it the next day. I made it into a regular sandwich for husband - on white bread, as recommended - and while he still really enjoyed it, he said it was MUCH better on the toasted muffin. I have to agree!)

French Egg and Bacon Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
I made this as written for Husband as, unlike me, he likes maple syrup on meat. I made mine with a slice of American cheese between the bacon and fried egg. Tasted great! Thanks!

Chicken Broccoli Ca - Unieng's Style

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
Awesome! I marinaded the chicken in oyster sauce, soy sauce and garlic paste overnight. I added more during the cooking when I saw it wasn't going to be saucy enough. I didn't need to add any cornstarch as it thickened up quite nicely on its own. Finally, I found that the bok choy needed very very little cooking - I stirred it in, covered the pan for about 3 mins, and it was tender crisp. Perfect! This would be great with carrots, peppers, bean sprouts, mushrooms etc, and I would be interested in making it again with a handful of chopped peanuts or cashews. Very versatile! Thanks, unieng!

Irish Soda Farls

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
I want to serve farls at our StP's meal next week, so I thought I'd give these a shot. They really are excellent! Because mine were quite thick and didn't completely cook all the way through, I just split them, and returned them to the skillet cut-side down. Wonderful with butter and seedless raspberry jelly! Thanks!

Bachelor Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
Every now and again, I stumble across a recipe that leaves me scratching my head wondering why on earth I never thought of it myself... I consider myself a pretty decent cook, but I cannot make a grilled cheese without burning at least one side of the sandwich. Thank you SO much, Kaoru! I'll never make them in a skillet again! (PS, I just made the following discovery - Put 3 or 4 rashers of 'Bill's Fried Bacon' from this site between the cheese slices. Holy cow! Delicious!!)

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2006

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
Yum! The only changes I made were to use thyme instead of celery seed, half and half instead of milk, and I added a diced medium potato. Very nice for a cold and blustery evening. Thanks, Roberta!
