Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2014
I personally love this recipe! I don't make it often because of the calorie count and because my husband doesn't care for it at all. Of course, this is the man who thinks the best mac and cheese has a can of condensed tomato soup in it (blech!) I think in order to truly appreciate this you have to like all the ingredients going into it. If you are looking for a boxed mac and cheese flavor then you need to buy boxed mac and cheese. Thanks for the great recipe!

Cod au Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
This recipe was fantastic! I used cheddar cheese that I freshly grated and I think that helps to step the whole thing up a notch. I used cod loin because that's what I had on hand. After the sauce was done, I added about 1 tsp of salt, about a 1/2 tsp of pepper, a bit of ground garlic and a sprinkling of smoked paprika to it. For the layers, I did fish, sauce, half the cheese and then repeated one more time. After baking for 20 minutes I put the whole thing under the broiler for a minute to get a nice crust on the top. My husband and I barely talked during dinner, savoring every bite! This recipe is definitely staying in the rotation. Thank you!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
These cookies are awesome! I have been making them every Christmas for the last 3 years for gifts and I have always gotten rave reviews and people who ask for the recipe. I have no idea what Brandi9 did wrong? I usually follow the recipe exactly but this year I was in a hurry and just dumped everything in the bowl and gave it a good mix and they still came out amazing. I do frost them with a standard confectionary sugar/shortening/milk frosting. YUMMY!

Portuguese Cod Fish Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
This recipe was really great! It got five stars from my Portuguese husband and his sister. I did use fresh cod and heavily salted it. I also used piri piri sauce instead of red pepper flakes. I'm sure red pepper flakes would have given it a good amount of heat but the Portuguese people in my life live off piri piri peppers/sauce so it had to be subbed. Thank you so much for sharing! This will definitely be in the regular rotation!

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
Every time I make this it always gets rave reviews! Always use good cocoa powder - I never get cheap because it makes a huge difference! I also use a heaping 1/4 of cocoa powder. So delicious!

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
I used this brine in conjunction with Chef John's Roast Turkey & Gravy recipe. The bird cooked perfectly, looked spectacular and gave rave reviews all around from the 17 guests we had! Most of the guests even commented that it was the "best turkey they ever had!" This was the first time I brined a turkey and it will definitely not be the last!

Chef John's Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
This recipe would get ten stars from me if I could! I hosted a "Friendsgiving" the weekend after Thanksgiving so I was in charge of the turkey. We had 17 people coming for dinner and I was pretty nervous about making sure it was perfect. I had a 22.5lb bird and followed the recipe exactly. The turkey was picture perfect when it came out of the oven! We did end up letting it rest for about 45 minutes because some of the guests were a bit late. When my husband carved into it, the juices were flowing and it was falling apart to the point where he had a hard time getting it on the serving platter! The only thing that didn't turn out for me was the gravy. I'm not sure what I did wrong but it never thickened up. That was ok because the turkey was so good it didn't need any gravy! I will also admit that the turkey was brined over night in a salt/veggie broth/rosemary/sage/poultry seasoning mixture. I would definitely suggest this recipe to anyone who is a first time turkey cooker! Oh and watch Chef John's video too. The spatula technique he uses to get the butter under the skin was brilliant!

Kae's Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
This recipe was amazing and resulted in the pie pan being licked clean! I will admit to changing a few things but the sauce - which is the heart and soul of this pie - was perfect. First, I used a pre-made crust because I didn't have time to make one from scratch. In our house we can't stand canned or frozen veggies so I diced onion and celery and shredded a carrot. I sauteed the veggies in a bit of EVOO. Instead of rubbed sage I added about a tbspn of fresh chopped sage and a tbspn of fresh chopped thyme to the veggie mixture after I turned the heat off. I followed the sauce exactly and then combined everything and dumped it into the crust. The cooking time was spot on. Definitely give it time to rest before cutting into it and you will end up with perfect pieces. I've been asked to use this in our regular rotation! Thank you, Kae!

Creamy Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
This is the first time I am rating a recipe and the reason - because hubs never eats casserole and doesn't like squash but went back to this for second and thirds! I am not giving it 5 stars only because I made some changes. I didn't use butter or shredded carrots. I added a bit more finely chopped onion. I also added finely chopped portabella mushrooms and lastly, I shredded some good cheddar cheese. I just mixed everything up in a bowl (after steaming the squash) and put it in a baking dish, sprinkled more stuffing on top and threw it in the oven! So easy! Oh I used Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned stuffing in the blue bag. Thanks for the great casserole idea!
