Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2012
Hands down THE best (and easiest) mashed potatoes I've ever made in my life. Follow the directions to a "T", and you'll agree that they are everything they're advertised to be. Thanks for sharing, Chef John!

Mom's Hearty Beef Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Awesome! I had to tweak it a bit, but only because I didn't have a some of the ingredients. No olive oil, so I used canola. No gravy mix, so I used onion soup mix and a can of cream of mushroom soup. No turnip, so I used a can of diced tomatoes - Italian style. I also used a bag of frozen stew vegetables instead of fresh. Because there was no gravy mix, I had to thicken it up with a bit of flour and cold water, which worked out great! Made the Bisquick dumplings to accompany and it was DELISH! There is no need for any other stew recipe, IMO.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
I hesitate to review this because I made a few adjustments, ( most out of necessity) but boy, was this good! Like others suggested, I coated the meat with a little flour and some seasonings (garlic powder, pepper, minced onion and a little seasoning salt) and browned in my stew pot. I didn't have bullion cubes, so I used a packet of brown gravy mix instead. I also added a can of diced tomatoes and a packet of onion soup mix. No cornstarch, so I used flour as a thickener. No fresh veggies, but I did have a package of frozen stew vegetables, so I added those in with about 1/2 hour - 45 min to go. Very, very good.

Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
Not bad. I think I'll have to adjust the cooking time though, because it was a little hard and dry around the edges. Other than that, the chicken was okay. The gravy was the best bit, especially after I added another tbsp of the flour mixture and some extra garlic salt and pepper. Yummy!

Creamy Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
Really good. I made too many changes to it to go into detail, but as a base it's fantastic.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
These were really good. I didn't really measure any of the ingredients; I just went by taste and look. I'm sure I used more mayo and mustard than called for, because I thought the measurements, as written, sounded a little dry. I also used 1/2 tsp of pickle juice in place of the vinegar and left out the salt all together. Very good!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Cooked it exactly as written (with one small exception - I couldn't fit everything in one pot, so I dad to yank out the corned beef before the veg went in) and it was perfect! I wouldn't change a thing.

Crispy Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Awesome! I used tilapia, and only made a few minor changes. I omitted the salt in the egg/mustard mixture, lightly floured the fish prior to dipping in the egg mixture and I added my families favorite seasonings to the potato flakes. I placed it on a lightly spray coated cookie sheet, then sprayed the top of each piece with a little more cooking spray. I baked it in a 450 oven for about 10, flipped the fish over, gave each piece another quick spray and returned to the oven for another 2 or 3 minutes. Everyone RAVED about it. Will definitely be making it over and over and over again!

Orange Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Only giving three stars because I changed it quite a bit. I left out the celery and used a bit of celery salt instead. Since there was no celery, I didn't need as much margarine, so I only used enough to soften up the onions. I used about 3/4 cup of OJ and then used water to make up the difference. I also added mandarin orange bits to the water after I took it off of the heat and mixed in my rice. A little salt and pepper to taste before serving and that was that. I served it along side baked tilapia w/ a pineapple/tangerine salsa and fresh green beans. Very good!

Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
I gave it three stars, only because I used the recipe as more of a guideline for my own creation. it was so good.

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Awesome! I used Pam instead of butter, dumped two bags of Green Giant steamers (rice and veggies w/buttery sauce) and a wee bit of chicken stock over the fish. I didn't have any lemons, but didn't miss them at all. Covered with foil and baked for about 30 minutes. It was even better the next day

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
This was REALLY good, although I'll have to admit that I tweaked things a bit. I started off by browning the meat in a little oil, garlic powder, minced onion and black pepper. I used plain onion soup mix instead of the beef and onion, a soup can plus maybe another 1/4 cup of milk instead of the water, about 1/4 cup of beef stock and some left over sangria(!) to taste. I used an 8x8 glass baking dish instead of the 9x13 and checked on it after about 40 minutes to see how the gravy was doing. Iit looked a bit thin, so I whisked two tablespoons of flour into about 1/4 c of hot water, poured it into my dish and it thickened right up. Yummy! Will definitely be making this again.

Mocha Coffee

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Really good! I'm more of a chocolate lover than a coffee lover, so I used the whole tablespoon of cocoa, plus another teaspoon. Maybe next time I'll add a little bit more. I used a packet of Equal instead of the sugar and added probably 1/4 milk and a teaspoon of coffeemate. Yum yum.

Bread N Butter Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I needed to supplement some Deli bought stuffing and this was really easy and quick. I used celery salt instead of plain, and I also left out the sage. I mixed the two stuffings together and let them sit overnight in the fridge. Yummmm...
