Chicken Pot Pie IV

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
This was delicious! I used the Campbell's cream of chicken & mushroom blend. The only thing I would suggest is lowering the heat (maybe 375* or 400*) and cooking it a bit longer. I noticed my pie was not quite hot in the middle, but the crust was getting really dark. I will definitely make this again!

Homemade Melt-In-Your-Mouth Dark Chocolate (Paleo)

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
I was looking for another recipe when I stumbled across this one. Seeing that I had all the ingredients, I decided to try a batch. Wow, are these good!!! I can't believe how simple they are. To prevent the honey from sinking to the bottom of the chocolate, here is what you do. Mix the oil and cocoa powder. Stick this mixture in the fridge until it starts to thicken. Now you can stir in the honey and it won't 'sink' because the coconut oil is no longer liquified. I added a little less than 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper, and a couple pinches of chipotle powder. I didn't have candy molds or a pliable tray, so I lined a small plastic container with foil. Once hardened, I was able to lift everything out of the container and cut into 8 pieces. Heavenly!!!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
This was really good, although I made a few adjustments. First, I sauteed fresh spinach with a crushed garlic clove in some olive oil. The cheese I used was one that I found in the gourmet cheese section at the market. It was a layered brick of blue cheese/old cheddar. The cheddar really helped keep the flavor mild. I think using the full amount of only blue cheese would have been overpowering, like others have mentioned. The chicken breasts I used were de-boned, but still had the skin on. I put the stuffing underneath the skin, then sauteed in a pan (without the flour). I finished these off in the oven. I will make this again.

Quick Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Hubby and I both liked this. It's very easy to make and is ready in no time. I used flank steak instead of sirloin and I didn't have any green onions, but otherwise I followed the recipe as written. We both though it needed a bit of something, so after the first few bites we added some crushed chilis for a bit of heat. There are so many different ways you could make this by using different veggies and seasonings. I liked the addition of the sesame seeds. I'll make this one again!

Carrot and Orange Juice

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
I've been drinking this for years and it's SO refreshing and the perfect vitamin boost when you're feeling a little under the weather. It has the perfect amount of sweetness, so no need to add anything else. I often cut down the recipe (1/2 pound of carrots + 2 oranges)and its just enough for one serving. Delicious!

Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
I've made this twice now. It has a nice flavor, although I think it needs a bit more of something - haven't figured it out yet. The feta and bacon go great together. Just make sure not to overcook it, because it can get realllly dry, even though there's bacon in it. The second time I made it, I wrapped the bacon around the chicken breast and it turned out great! I actually prefer it this way now. The bacon was nicely cooked with a slight crisp, not soggy like when you cook in inside the breast.

Champagne Cake With Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
WOW. This is one amazing cake! I made it for my fiance's birthday and it was a HUGE hit. I could have easily eaten it all myself! I'm not sure why others are having 'texture' issues, as I found this to have the perfect texture! It has a great homemade taste and it's so moist. The champagne gives it such a great flavor. I made two 9" round cakes (with a little bit of batter left over) which made a double-layer round cake. Make sure to drizzle champagne on them - I poked holes in the cakes and drizzled a bit more than the recipe asked for. This really added flavor and moistness. I can't wait to make this again!

Asparagus Mushroom Bacon Crustless Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Oh my goodness this is delicious! Hubby and I decided we were in the mood for breakfast for dinner, so I decided to make this quiche. I made it exactly as written and it was FABULOUS! The eggs have such an amazing creamy taste; I could just eat them plain! All the other ingredients go so well together. I wouldn't change a thing! I can see myself making this for company as it's very impressive. I like that this has no crust, so I can fit it into my low-carb diet. Thanks for the great recipe, Nikki!

Firecracker Crackers

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
Really? You want me to pour oil over crackers??? They won't get soggy??? Wow, was I ever surprised that these didn't turn to mush! :) I made half a recipe, since it's just me and hubby, and made it exactly as written. These whip together really quickly and are so easy. A nice blend of flavors, which I didn't find too spicy at all. They were quite salty though. I'm not sure I'd make these again, but if I do, I'll probably just use half the ranch dressing packet to cut down on the salt and/or use unsalted crackers.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
WOW! This is delicious! Everyone loved it and there were NO leftovers, unlike other years where the stuffing gets tossed. I used Jimmy Dean sage sausage instead of the turkey sausage and 1 box of cornbread stuffing instead of the 1 1/2 cups whole wheat bread. I also used a 50/50 mix of chicken stock and white wine to moisten the stuffing. I cooked it in a crockpot for about 3 hrs on high, adding a bit of liquid every hour or so. The cranberries give it such a nice flavor without being too sweet. I omitted the turkey liver. I'll definitely be making this again!

Spicy Strawberry Kiwi Peach Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
I'd give this 10 stars if I could! So easy to make and such impressive flavor! I made the recipe exactly as written using all fresh fruit. The only thing I would change is to double the recipe next time. As written, it made a perfect amount for two. Both hubby and I were wishing I had made more! I served it over grilled Pacific Sea Bass and served it with a fresh salad from my garden. The ideal refreshing meal for summer!

Chocolate Tres Leches Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
Delicious! I couldn't find a 18.25oz cake mix, so I used a 16oz mix, keeping the other ingredient amounts the same. The cake turned out perfect. Once I mixed all the milks together, it looked like it was way too much, but the cake managed to soak it all in. I ended up whipping the cream a bit too long and it was more of a mousse, but still tasty! I made this for a party and it disappeared in no time.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Excellent! And I agree with the others, the house smells WONDERFUL as this is cooking. For those who commented on the lack of flavor, here is what I did. I rubbed the spice mixture on the night before and let sit in the fridge overnight. This is essential in letting the flavors soak into the meat. My roast was 3.5 pounds and it was perfectly done after 8.5 hours when I checked it. It came out super moist. I pulled the meat, then put it in a foil pan with some of the liquid. I tossed it around a few times then put it under the broiler for 5 minutes. Some nice crispy edges, and moist, savory meat. YUM! The only ingredient change I made was to add the juice of half an orange. Everything was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. The cinnamon flavor is there, but not overpowering at all. It gives the recipe a unique flavor that make people ask what it is. I did find a light sprinkle of salt over the pulled meat brought out even more flavor. This rivals my favorite carnitas that I usually get in my burrito bowl at that famous fast-food restaurant. I will be making this again and again.

Grilled Chipotle Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Salty, sweet, spicy, all in one bite! These are delicious! Such an interesting blend of flavors. I only cooked the potatoes in the microwave for 6 mins and they were starting to get mushy, so I think 10 mins would be much too long. The only thing I noticed was that they seemed to be slightly dry, so next time I will make extra sauce so I can baste them more often. A keeper!

Energy Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
FABULOUS, DELICIOUS, SCRUMPTIOUS...you get the idea! Super easy to make, just throw everything into a bowl and mix and roll. The only sight variation I made was to use vanilla nut extract instead of just vanilla, and what a great taste! Highly recommended. I let them sit overnight and the flavor was even better. I think next time I will use unsweetened coconut to lower the sugar. Nice and chewy and packed with flavor. I will definitely make these again and again. These freeze well too!

Cucumber Salad With Thai Sweet Chili Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
Simple, yet tasty! This comes together very quickly...the hardest part is waiting for the cucumber to marinate an hour! I love marinated cukes and this is a nice change from the usual. Next time I think I will use one clove of fresh garlic instead of granulated. The only change I made was to double the green onions. Delicious!

My Favorite Beet Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Saw that I had some beets ready in the garden today, so I used this recipe I had saved. I scaled it down to make 2 servings and it turned out great! Both hubby and I loved it. Nice balance of sweetness from the beets, tangyness from the dressing and saltiness from the feta.

Breakfast-to-Go Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
A super quick way to get your breakfast in! This is so nutritious and keeps you full. A well-balanced smoothie, with lots of protein from the Greek yogurt. This is definitely not a sweet smoothie. It's very tart from the yogurt, but it's SO good! It's not a thick smoothie either. I think next time I might add more frozen blueberries to make it a bit thicker, but either way, it's a keeper! I will also try this with rapsberries and strawberries too. YUM. Thanks for the great recipe! I will be making this often.

Miso-Glazed Skirt Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
WOW!!! What's not to love about this!?!? This was of the best skirt steaks I have ever eaten, and I prepare it often using many different recipes. I made it exactly as written and it was perfect - no changes necessary - but I wouldn't expect any less from Chef John! Very tender and flavorful. I'm not sure why the other reviewer's steak was tough. Skirt steak needs to be cut against the grain. Miso paste can be obtained from any Asian market in the refrigerated section. Sure, it's not available in your everyday grocery store, but no reason to rate the recipe down for that! I'll definitely be making this for company and I know they'll be impressed!

Mashed Jalapeno-Cilantro Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
These are amazing!!! I've gotten really tired of the typical sweet potato dishes that are overly sweet and mixed with brown sugar, spices, etc. It's fine for Thanksgiving, but when it comes to summer, I want something with a fresh and bright flavor. This recipe totally fits the bill! I admit, I was running short on time, so I microwaved the potatoes on high for 6 minutes. I used the juice of one small orange. I mashed everything together and that was it. Time to dig in! I didn't bother drizzling the extra butter over top and baking in the oven. I also didn't use the walnut pieces, only because I didn't have any, but I'm sure it's quite tasty! The jalapeno really mellows as it roasts, so don't be afraid of using the whole pepper. Next time I will use two! I will also double the recipe. This is a keeper!
