Restaurant-Style Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
Worked great. Followed some other reviews with small changes. Added a little cayenne to the rub. Will need more next time. As one mentioned, I had a little left over, but not a great deal. Cooked a 9.5lb rib at 425F for about 20 minutes to start/crisp it up which worked great then dropped to 350F. It appeared to be getting close to 120 within about 2hrs, so I dropped the temp to 325F to time up with the rest of the meal. I also added 2c of water to the pan, as the rib was sitting on a rack. I had dry aged the rib for about 2.5 days, so was worried about juices, but cutting into the rib after 45min rest, the juices started coming out. Gravy or jus was not needed as the meat was plenty tender and juicy. But still managed to make some gravy from the tidbits in the bottom of the pan with some beef stock and flour.

Famous Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
What a hit. I used a whole Green pepper, two small cans of pineapple chunks and one small of crushed (opened by accident, lol). Next time I plan to try fresh pineapple. I mixed some frozen Italian style and traditional meatballs in the slow cooker, about 4lbs worth. Note it takes a long time to cook from frozen, so allow an extra 30-60min if cooking them from frozen.

Touchdown Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
Tasty and spicy. I modified the pizza "sauce" to Chef Johns Buffalo sauce, then added two TBS of corn starch to thicken (let sit for a couple hours to gel up nicely). I used canned chicken and let that soak in hot sauce for about an hour, and also added diced red onions to the toppings. I baked the store pizza crust alone for about half the time so the sauce would not make the crust mushy. After cooking in the oven, I always broil my pizza for a minute or two to fully brown the cheese on top a little. This was a crowd-pleaser for my family that enjoys the spicier foods. Looking forward to trying with some BBq sauce instead of hot sauce for a lighter spice.

Spicy Hot Chicken Legs

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
It was ok to me, but my guests enjoyed it. I removed the skins as I did not want a lot of fat sitting in the pot for hours. Cooked for about 2.5hrs on high then last 30min on low. The chicken fell apart as I removed it so I ended up having to make shredded chicken instead of drumsticks. That was not planned so put me behind on the rest of the meal. I added some worchestire and vinegar to match Chef Johns Buffalo sauce. Next time, I will either brown/sear the drumsticks and follow other suggestions to crock pot for about 2hrs then bake. Without the extra juice mixed in, it was a little bland. I think browning will go a long way.

Pork Tenderloin Diane

Simple and delicious. I forgot to grab the Dijon, so just used the spicy mustard I had on hand.

Pasta with Italian Sausage and Pumpkin Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
very savory. My wife and I enjoyed it for dinner. This made enough to have leftovers for lunch the next day. I added a pinch of red pepper flakes for a little spice and will use more onion next time.

Cranberry Sauce with Bourbon

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
Bourbon & cranberry converted my mother. My mother swears by and only eats canned cranberry. I used a variation of this recipe and now she makes my version every year. Actually the whole family has stolen it... I used 1 package of fresh cranberry, 1-1/4C of sugar and 1/4C (or more) of bourbon. Since it is usually Thanksgiving, I sprinkle some nutmeg and cinnamon in too. Super easy to make, the house smells great and even the kids loved it.

Renaissance Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
Made this last nite and was delicious. As others mentioned a lot extra filling but my wife asked me to make them again tonite. Saute was done in butter, garlic and vidalia onions. Had I mixed this into the cheese filling, I think would have been too much. You do get some of the garlic/onion/butter flavor from the saute. My wife is not a fan of hot sauce and the consistency can use some help. Instead of the port wine, I used about the same amount of soy sauce. Next time I may add a little breadcrumbs to help 'hold together' and a maybe little pineapple for extra sweetness. So many more possibilities I am looking forward to trying with this easy recipe.
