Simply Roasted Artichokes

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
This is a quick and easy way to cook an artichoke. Couldn't find commercial-grade foil, so I used three sheets of regular foil. Whole egg mayonnaise makes a fresh dipping sauce. I'll use this recipe again.

Classic Standing Beef Rib Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
It turned out perfect! Here are some "Top Tips" for cooking a standing rib roast. You MUST use a meat thermometer for perfect results. Shop early in the day. Ask your butcher to cut the roast for you and leave in the bones! (I asked for a four-bone roast. It cost a lot, but could serve 12-15 people.) Season with Montreal Steak rub. At 2 hours, 20 minutes, the roast reached 124 degrees. I removed it, covered with a foil tent and let it rest for 20 minutes. The internal temperature was 134 degrees just before I carved it. WOW! It was a nice, deep pink color. Cooked but not raw. I was so happy I did a couple of cartwheels around the kitchen. (Just kidding.) My neighbor came over to see what I was cooking and agreed it was perfectly seasoned and cooked. I would use this recipe again. I made the Jus, but the meat was so flavorful, it really wasn't needed. Just a sprinkle of French salt to finish it. Thank you Campbell's!

Cream Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
Quick. Easy. Yummy! Instead of melting the butter, I chopped cold butter into very small pieces and cut it into the flour mixture, and I also added a bit more cream. Very good with real British Clotted Cream. The result was a flaky scone. Brilliant!

Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
I'm not going to lie to you. I didn't make the cake. They don't sell Ghiradelli products in the Middle East, where I'm living now. I did make a caramel cake and I made the GLAZE from the recipe above... using a sub-standard brand of chocolate. The results were pretty, but you can't beat good chocolate. I'll make this cake when I get home.... using Ghiradelli chocolate.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I substituted the green beans with a package of fresh mushrooms, and I used a can of imported, Italian crushed tomatoes. The results are very nice. This is a great base recipe.

Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
Sometimes the simple dishes are the best dishes. This delicious dessert is elegant and easy. Used a vanilla bean instead of the extract. I used the oven and they turned out ok, but I prefer using a blow torch when I'm at home in the USA. (One thin layer of white sugar, torch, another layer of sugar and torch it again. That will get the results of an award-winning French chef.)

Easy Egg White Omelet

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
Surprise! You CAN cook in a microwave! I was a little skeptical about that, but this dish turned out very nice. Used a round, glass baking dish and garnished with fresh tomatoes and green onions. This is a make-again recipe. Loved it!

Chef John's French Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Quick, easy and delicious. Try par-boiling and chilling before the first fry to make them really fluffy on the inside.

Halloumi Cheese Fingers

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Quick and satisfying. Halloumi cheese has a high melting point, so it's easy to cook and it tastes great with a dash of fresh lemon. I saw Nigella Lawson make a salad with spring mix, grilled halloumi and a soft-boiled egg on TV once. It's really good. I'll upload a picture the next time I'm in the USA. It's worth making.

Roast Leg of Lamb

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
Use a meat thermometer for perfect results. Remove the roast from the oven when the needle hits 125 degrees. Let it rest about ten minutes. The results are delicious!

Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
This is a decadent and elegant dessert, served with vanilla ice cream and warm caramel sauce. (I substituted heavy cream for the evaporated milk.) If you like dates, you might really like this one.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
Better than the canned version. But here's a warning: be very, very careful. Popping cranberries can spurt molten-hot juice clear across the kitchen. Do not cook this dish while naked. ;)

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
One wax paper package makes enough for one pie. (There are three packages in a box of graham crackers.) This crust was quick and easy to make and it baked nicely. Will use this recipe again!

Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2012
Added some onion powder to the rub and roasted the beef to perfection. Pink in the middle but not raw. A one-pound roast cooked perfectly in about 35 minutes. Let it rest for 10 minutes. I've never tried making Yorkshire pudding before. They're quite easy, actually, and quite tasty. I see why people like them. This British meal is ... brilliant!

Cumin-Rubbed Steaks with Avocado Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Great for Grilling! Saw that little sticker on the package of chuck steaks, and had to buy it. Two thick, nicely marbled steaks for less than eight dollars. Used the cumin rub for one, my favorite Montreal Steak rub for the other. Both turned out very nice. A chef taught me how to cook them the way I like them. Pinch the fleshy part of your hand between the thumb and forefinger. When the steak feels like that, take it off the grill and let it rest for several minutes to retain the juice. The result was flavorful, tender meat that tasted better than more expensive cuts. Just trim the fat away to save calories. The avocado salsa on top was a nice variation from the usual steak-sauce I buy. This is a nice recipe for a summer cook-out.

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
I love a rich, creamy vanilla ice cream, don't you? You can do so much with it. This is a really nice recipe. Followed it to the letter. Made a homemade blackberry sauce using fresh berries, sugar, blackberry schnapps and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Garnished with fresh blackberries. A simple and elegant summer dessert.

HERDEZ® Creamy Pasilla Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
Very good! As you can see, I really like color. In my decorating and in my cooking. Food can be art, and we eat with our eyes. Presentation is everything! I used chopped tomato for a nice contrast with the cilantro and sour cream. Tastes as good as it looks!

Marinated Rib-Eyes

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
This marinade was quick and easy-to-make. It's sweet AND savory. The steak was so tender and juicy, I didn't need steak sauce. I'll make it again!

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

This easy sauce makes a boring breakfast beautiful and elegant. It took just a few moments to whip up this Hollandaise Sauce. I'll upload the picture when I get back to the USA.
