Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Simply outstanding! I made this for my husbands birthday party and everyone raved. Used 1 cup whole wheat flour ( I do that with all my baking) 1 cup unbleached flour, omitted the raisins and doubled the recipe to make a party size 12 inch round 2 layer cake. Filled and frosted with cream cheese frosting. So delish! Do NOT pass this one up;)

Strawberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
Simple, easy and good for when you have strawberries that are about to go bad. Made two over the weekend and they were gone within 30 minutes. Followed recipe verbatim, no need to mess with the ingredients. A new regular treat in our house!

Oven Baked Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
This was good and the whole family enjoyed it. I halved the recipe and thus cut out some steps, after initial saute, I just threw everything into my Rachael Ray ovenproof pan and let it rip. Also subbed large prawns for pre cooked shrimp, chicken tenderloins for store bought rotisserie and Evergood Pineapple sausage for andouille, which helped control the heat of the dish a bit as I have a 3 year old that doesn't yet appreciate very spicy food that the rest of the family does. I also used the recommended link for the creole spice mix and just eased up on the cayenne and white pepper. An overall winner that I will make again!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
These are very tasty. I did pan fry them in a tiny bit of olive oil because they felt too soft to put on the grill, even after refrigerating the patties for a few hours. Will make again!

Apple Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
This is a great way to use up apples that are "past due". My tweaks, I subbed 2 cups of the white flour with whole wheat flour and shredded the apples. Added a couple dashes of ground nutmeg and a few drops of almond extract. Also used other reviewers suggestions of subbing half of the sugar with brown sugar and adding a tsp vanilla. Baked in one bunt cake pan for 60 minutes at 300 convect. Came out great!

Dobos Torte

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2014
This is good. I had my grandmothers recipe for Dobos and used it for years before I switched to this easier, more streamlined version. I still use my original chocolate buttercream recipe which I have posted here. This also freezes very well if you cut them into slices and separate them with wax paper. Very rich, very delish!

Mendocino Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
Great chicken salad! I had a Costco chicken and I found a great way to sub the smoked chicken flavor. Mix 2/3 drops of liquid smoke into the mayo and when you combine it with the chicken it will give you the same taste. I also added a handful of blueberries. Delish!

Garlic-Ginger Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
Wow! Another delicious recipe from Chef John. Wings came out crispy and I did not need to turn them when I used the roast option in my convection oven. Sauce is thin but coats the battered wings perfectly. Not too hot, but definitely has that Asian Zing! A keeper for sure!

Shredded Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
This is a really nice filling for chicken tacos/burritos/nachos. I did not use adobo seasoning because I didn't have it on hand. I used emmerils essence after googling adobo seasoning and discovering the ingredients were very similar. Also after discovering I had twice as much chicken breast than the recipe called for, I added 2 cups of chicken broth to the tomato sauce mixture and it cooked down nicely and made a rich and flavorful sauce. Also added about a half cup minced onion for flavor. Very tasty. Will definitely put this into my rotation!!

Root Beer and Sesame Glazed Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
This didn't turn out for me. I used pork rib tips and the marinade coagulated and solidified when I tried to simmer it down so I had to throw it out. (I always have this problem and will in the future avoid recipes that call for used marinade to be boiled down for later use that I ended up just using the pan drippings and the rest of the ingredients. It turned out rather bland. I love Chef Johns recipes and was looking forward to another hit. I gave 5 stars because I did sub pork for lamb and maybe this was my mistake??

Salted Caramel Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2014
This is a great variation for banana bread. I added a tsp of cinnamon to the dough. The salted caramel sauce is easy to make and I will be using it for my caramel apple cheesecake bars. Moist and delicious!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
This is a good mild to medium hot chili. The flavors blended nicely. I subbed real bacon for the "bits" and used 1 pound ground turkey in place of the 2nd pound of beef chuck to lighten it up. I also used 2 cans of chili beans in sauce with 1 can each of rinsed cannelli and kidney beans for variety and visual appeal. Using this for my neighborhood chili cook off since my standard turkey chili recipe took 2nd a couple years ago. We'll see if I win!!!

Chocolate Mousse Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
Rich and delicious! I took the advice of the other reviewers and used a Ghiardelli box brownie mix for the base because I wanted to save myself some work and time. The mousse and ganache were very good. I used blanched slivered almonds for the garnish instead of walnuts.

Chicken Primavera Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2014
This was rich and delicious. Tasted like a Cheesecake Factory pasta dish. I used broccoli and quartered mushrooms and only about half the cream cheese that it called for. Next time I will add some crispy bacon for a twist.

Make-Ahead Marsala Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2014
I have been making the same food network giblet gravy recipe for 12 years. This year I was up for a change and made this. Amazing! Very flavorful and the Marsala gives it a rich taste. The only thing I did different was double up on the Marsala.

Sausage and Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2014
Delish! My family loved this. My daughter ate some of cornbread so I added 3 ciabatta rolls cut into cubes and dried them out in the oven. I was worried the crumbled cornbread wouldn't have enough texture for my taste. I also used turkey breakfast sausage in place of the pork because I did not want it to be spicy. Will make this again.

Caramel Cream Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2014
Divine! The only thing I did different was to make them larger and add a pinch of kosher salt to the filling. I also doubled the filling, it wasn't enough for my taste. I am already making a second batch!
