Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
I've made this Quiche several times and it is the best. Sautee'ing the onions is not necessary, they are a perfect consistency after the hour long baking. I always use Fresh Spinach, but beware of overloading the heaping fresh spinach in the pie plate, it makes it tricky to pour the egg mixture of the top, but it is worth it! You may have to seal the foil down around the pie plate to press it down, the spinach will wilt down and cook beautifully. IMPORTANT NOTE, put a piece of Parchment Paper inbetween the Foil and the Quiche, to prevent Sticking and getting that icky brown discoloration from the Foil on the quiche. Today I topped it with about 1/4 cup of pre-cooked bacon crumbles. YUM!

Zippy Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
Loved it! We're a little wimpy on heat so I didn't use Jalepeno but it was great regardless. Also my Cilantro plant has gone to seed so I used fresh Parsley instead. This recipe is rather flexible, and very tasty.

Chef John's Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Its a keeper! Its a perfect way of using up leftover mashed potatoes, so that makes it even easier to make. I skip the sour cream since my leftover mashed potatoes already have butter and milk in them. I've made this twice now, both times with frozen veggies which works great. I follow the Recipe except I sauteed chopped onion and garlic with the meat, and add about twice as much broth to make more "gravy". I also add a few shakes of Worcestershire and maybe a little soy sauce to add a zip. Everything fits into a 2 quart casserole dish perfectly. Thanks Chef John!

Chicken Artichoke Bacon Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
I was surprised at how this turned out, and I kept thinking I must have made a mistake but I read the recipe over and over again and I got everything spot-on. The only thing that MIGHT be different is that I used 1 whole, poached chicken breast. (Well 1/2 of the bird's breast). This dip turned out almost HEALTHY! I used the lean Chicken Breast, Spinach, Artichoke Hearts, Hormel pre-cooked 50% lean Real Bacon Bits. The 1/2 cup Mayo and 1/2 cup 2% Low Fat Mozzerella isn't that much considering the dip fills up an entire pie plate. I also used lower fat Neufchatel and 2 slices of 2% Swiss Cheese. I guess those are slightly different ingredients but of course up to the Cook. Anyway, I posted a picture. It came out light and fluffy, more like a Chicken Salad Spread than a gooey cheesey heart stopping dip that I was expecting. I even added swiss cheese to the top just to get SOME gooeyness out of it, but it just baked on and browned. Hmm! I don't think it was fair for the Reviewer to give it 1 star because it looked unhealthy, it really isn't all that bad. Tastes good too!

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
I didn't change a thing, except that I had fresh Kale to use instead of Spinach, and to make sure it cooked all the way through I put it in the pan just after the onions and garlic sauteed for a couple of minutes. Don't worry about not draining the grease from the Sausage, it works out fine. I only had local farm raised "breakfast sausage links" on hand but that worked out great, it was pretty spicy and not sweet at all, so don't worry about what type of sausage to use. Served with some french bread. Yumm!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
This is a keeper! I cheated though and used 2 jars of Ragu Spaghetti Sauce rather than using the 8 ingredients listed in the recipe, and simmered that with 3 bay leaves and garlic powder with the drained, cooked ground beef for about 40 minutes. 9 lasagna noodles worked out great, and we baked it for 40 minutes covered (put parchment paper between the aluminum foil and the lasagne to protect the top of the lasagne from strange black foil stuff) and then uncovered for 40 minutes longer, and it was perfect. I also added frozen shredded spinach to the Ricotta. Its a great meal to have and to share!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
I was looking for a Fried Chicken Strips Recipe to make for my born and raised in North Carolina boyfriend and this was it! I didn't have potato flakes, so I omitted that ingredient. I cut my chicken breasts into pretty narrow strips so they only needed about 5 minutes on each side in the cast iron skillet, which was filled 1/4 way with Vegetable Oil. The Oil should be at about 350 degrees, it is important to fry in a good hot oil but not to the point of smoking. I seasoned the flour with salt, pepper, a little cayenne and garlic powder. After dipping the strips in the flour, then in the egg and then in the crushed saltines, I noticed some bare spots on the chicken so I sprinkled bread crumbs over the top which filled in the gaps. After frying they were SO moist on the inside, and CRUNCHY on the outside. This was a great recipe, and its a keeper, thanks for posting it!

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
I realize this isn't authentic Thai which may offend the negative reviewers, but the taste was great, I didn't change anything. Also the ingredients are all pretty inexpensive and easy to get. I made a Thai Peanut dipping sauce and also a cucumber salad to go with it. We grilled them and they came out very tender and delicious!

Delectable Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
I went out and bought Molasses and Liquid Smoke because I wanted to make this EXACTLY as written. The flavors were great together, and I love the way the meat carmelizes on the Grill. I marinated for 8 hours and longer would have been great too! Served with White Rice, Broccoli, Grilled Pineapple, and even some Macaroni Salad for the pickier eaters in the house. Everyone loved it and I'll make it again!!

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Braised Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
I was so glad to see one of the Reviewers commented that this could also be made with Thick Cut Pork Chops, because I had 4 of them that I used for this Recipe! They totaled 3 pounds of Pork Chops so I figured I'd make the recipe otherwise exactly as written (oops I just now realized I forgot to add the herbs and cayenne) and it was GREAT! See my Pic... I served with Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Kale with Pine Nuts. It was a beautiful presentation and everyone LOVED it!

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
I made this recipe exactly as written, except I added Chicken Broth until I got the desired consistency, just a little bit "soupy." Then, when I added the cheese at the end to simmer, it made the broth creamy and wonderful. You have to add the cheese! And use just as much broth as you like. Also, use the cinnamon and all the spices. I garnished with Sour Cream and a little more shredded cheese, and I also topped mine with some raw chopped onions I had left over. It was wonderful!

Southern Italian Thanksgiving Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
I was so looking forward to making this, but for some reason I just didn't like it, and nobody wanted seconds. For me it was the texture, it was chewy and tough and the pine nuts made it nutty. I made it exactly per the directions, except that I down-scaled it a bit, so maybe I did something wrong with the proportions. Anyway, sorry to say it wasn't a hit at my house like I thought it would be.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
Very good, and I made extra "sauce" because I wanted to be sure there was some to add to the Egg Noodles. Made Broccoli to go with this too. I added some bacon bits, and Panko Bread Crumbs to the top. Used Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder because I didn't have Garlic Pepper, but I next time I'll skip the Salt. UPDATE on 8/12/14: I sliced the chicken into strips, seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Placed in greased baking dish, then sprinkled chopped ham lunchmeat all over it. For the topping I made a little extra including adding sour cream, used regular Artichoke Hearts (not marinated), and added fresh Spinach that needed to be used up. Spread topping all over chicken/ham and then topped it with Panko. It was VERY Good!!! Served with Quinoa.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
I really liked this! I didn't use mushrooms, so I was able to saute the onion, celery, and garlic in the same large skillet that I added the flour to to make the roux. So that part was all done in one skillet. Also I used crushed potato chips on top instead of the breading. Its a keeper!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
For some reason I never buy Curry but I have TWO bottles of Garam Marsala, and I use that in its place, and it is always good. Great meal, everyone enjoyed it!

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
This was great! I chopped up small white potatoes into small cubes and added them at the same time as the Northern Beans. Also I substituted celery for the zucchini. I had frozen spinach and used that. It made a big batch, I'll put some in the freezer and pull it out when I don't feel like cooking in a few weeks. :-)

Mashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
This was great! My hubby and son do not like Cauliflower, but they ate a good side dish of this and said, for cauliflower, it was the best they way they've ever had it. I steamed it for 10 minutes, and used a little garlic powder in the Food Processor where I let it mix for about 1 minute. Otherwise made it exactly as written. I personally loved it.

Ray's Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2014
It was great! I forgot the Sherry; I was going to substitute wine when I opened a bottle that evening, but got the chicken marinating in an airtight storage bag in the fridge before I thought of it again. I marinated it for 24 hours and it had a very nice flavor. I'll use it again, Thanks!
