Spicy Honey-Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
I made this pretty much as the recipe states except I used a smaller fryer (about 4 pounds). Since I only had about 1/3 cup of honey made up the difference with some Asian sweet chili sauce (there was more than enough mixture to coat the chicken inside and out). I cooked it in an open cast iron dutch oven for the first 30-45 minutes at 400. I glazed it a couple of times. For about the next hour I cooked it with the lid on at 350 (to ensure that the chicken was cooking through)...the glaze really bubbled and it practically braising. I removed the lid and let the skin finish to a crispy brown. The chicken nearly falls off the bone and I could literally cut it with the serving spoon that I used to take it out of the dutch oven. The taste is excellent. I really don't know how it could be improved, however I did use the older spices in my cabinet as I am in the process of replacing them with organic. The chicken was of high quality, free range, vegetable fed, locally raised purchased at Whole Foods which I recommend, it is not that much more expensive. I will definitely make this for friends. It seems like it would be better paired with some sort of slaw and fries than roasted potatoes as shown.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
I just made these tonight and they were great. I didn't go into this expecting them to taste like crab, so I wasn't disappointed...instead I found this to not only be easy, but such a big payoff in flavor, economy and the "impress your friends" factor. I did not drain my zucchini so I had to wash my hands after forming the third one. The first two were not as flat so I cooked them for 1 minute to get the inside cooked...when I cut them with my fork delicious steam poured out, yum! A great appetizer.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
Very simple and turned out great. I used Paul Newman's Own Mild Salsa and a bit of salt and pepper. Excellent alongside spicy tacos.

Zucchini Bread VII

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2013
I have to give 5 stars because everyone loved this recipe with these changes: 1 cup shredded zucchini, 1 cup shredded apple (Macintosh), used 1 cup organic non-gmo canola oil, used 1 cup pecans. Great with vanilla ice cream.

Carrot Cake VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
This cake is delicious and I will definitely make it again. I made two changes. First I made my own pumpkin pie spice using a recipe that I googled. Second, I split the batter into two 9 x 2" round cake pans, prepared with vegetable oil and flour. Baked at 350 degrees until a skewer came out clean. To make a layer cake required doubling the frosting recipe.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
This recipe is a great starting point...I recommend using salted butter (never use margarine, it is unhealthy) and adding a tablespoon or two of molasses. I added the peanuts to the caramel mixture before mixing with the popcorn. While using a paper bag has some advantages, I think it wastes too much caramel sauce, so I used the biggest mixing bowl I have and it worked just fine. I found that 200 degrees is not hot enough to perform the final baking steps, so I turned it up to about 225-250.

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
Delicious recipe. I reduced to 8 servings. I began by sautéing the vegetables and herbs, then added one bone-in chicken breast which I had chopped into two pieces. I covered and simmered for 20 minutes. I then added two 32oz cartons of chicken broth and brought to a boil. Removed chicken to cool then chopped it into small cubes. I then finished recipe as directed except I substituted kale for the spinach and omitted the Parmesan cheese. Will definitely make this again.

Irish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
I made the following changes: I halved the recipe substituting ground beef for lamb, thyme for rosemary, mixed vegetables for peas and carrots, and I used half each mashed potato and cauliflower for the topping. I soaked up the excess fat with paper towels before adding the flour, then fooled the directions as listed. This dish was absolutely delicious!

Disney's Ratatouille

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
I've made this recipe several times and it is always delicious. When I am cooking for myself I don't get too fussy with the careful layering, but it would be beautiful for a dinner party if I did take the time to do that. I take leftovers to work and everyone is jealous.
