Chef John's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
We didn't like the Chinese five spice powder flavor. It was just an off taste to us.

Lime-Cilantro Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
I've been making salads all summer and I like to make my salad dressings homemade. This recipe caught my eye as I love cilantro and always have some in the fridge waiting to be used. The only change I made was I used Dijon mustard instead of spicy brown mustard. Next time will add some color to my salad, like cherry tomatoes. My salad ingredients were mixed greens, avocado, red onion and sliced chicken breast and feta. This salad dressing is a bright green and has a crisp fresh flavor.

Chef John's Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
I was in charge of making the turkey this last Thanksgiving and I came across this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and I have to say it was the best Turkey we've ever had. Everyone was amazed how moist and flavorful the turkey was. This will be my turkey recipe for now on. It was perfect, I won't change a thing!

Summer Beer I

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
Oh my! This is one great drink but be careful, as they pack a punch! I only used 8 oz of vodka and it was enough! For the beer I used Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy (which already has a lemon flavor) and Citron Vodka. It's a keeper!

Savory Bacon and Crab Bread Pudding Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
My husband loves Eggs Benedict and he rates this as a keeper. I made it for dinner as I'm not of fan of crab for breakfast. This makes 2 hearty servings so can be made into 4 smaller servings. It's a rich dish so I would prefer the smaller serving.

These made great holiday treat bags. I made sure I saved enough for us to enjoy too. I made the recipe exactly as written and thought it was perfect.

Valentine's Fettuccini for Two

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
We thought it was just okay. It was missing something and maybe garlic would help the flavor. The servings are generous, I'd say it serve 4.

Creamy Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
We liked this. We thought this was flavorful. I made a few changes I used only 3 chicken breast and after marinating I sliced the chicken so it only takes a few minutes to cook before adding all the other ingredients. I also didn't use all the salt, it doesn't need it.

Beef Bulgogi

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
I've made this recipe a few times and have made a few changes. Really good as is but I made it easier for me. Instead of 5 tablespoons soy sauce I use 1/3 cup, just easier to measure. I like to use a garlic press so instead of 2 tablespoons garlic I used 1 tablespoon crushed garlic. I also used only 1 tablespoon seasame seeds instead of 2. I only marinate for two hours, it's all the time it needs as the meat is sliced so thin. The last change was how I grilled the beef. I used skewers and skewered the meat back and forth onto the skewers. It made it easy to manage the meet on the grill. But like I said, recipe is 5 star already. It's so tender and flavorful!

Easy Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
I'll give this recipe 4 stars because it makes for an easy weeknight meal as it uses a pre made pie crust, deli roasted chicken and Progresso Recipe Starters Sauce. I didn't make any changes except I did bake on the bottom rack as this helps with cooking the bottom crust when using a glass pie pan.

Shrimp Ramakis

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
We really liked these shrimp ramakis. I was making the recipe for two so I just scaled the recipe down with no problem. Very easy recipe. I used sliced water chestnuts instead of whole. Served on rice pilaf and roasted asparagus. Made for a really good dinner.

Strawberry-Raspberry No-Cook Jam

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Really good jam! Strawberries are so flavorful right now so the jam was delicious. I used granulated sugar, I don't care for splenda. I also like that the recipe doesn't make a ton.

Pork Chop Grill

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I try and follow a recipe exactly the first time I make it as I did here. I will be making these pork chops again as they were very moist and tender but would like a little more flavor. Next time I think I will brush on a little BBQ sauce right before they come off the grill.

Easy Focaccia

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Followed the recipe except I used all purpose flour. It was very easy and had a really nice texture. Next time I might add garlic or try some different herbs.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
I made this recipe exactly as written and I had two problems. First of all WAY to much topping. I couldn't even use it all. Second, the muffin tops stuck to the pan because the blueberries bubbled out a little. I will say these tasted good but the topping measurements are off and the instructions should have you spray non-stick spray on top of the pan. Otherwise when you take them out of the pan they stick and all the topping breaks off.

Premium Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
Warning....before you make this recipe you will need to add 3 eggs, they're missing in the ingredients but directions are okay. My husband loves pecan pie and said this was his favorite. I used pecan pieces as it makes it easier to cut the pie. Make sure you use real maple syrup not the imitation maple pancake syrup.

Amy's Cucumber Lemonade

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
I made this twice, first time I didn't read the directions and I just sliced up a cucumber and added it to the lemonade. Second time I followed the directions and bended the cucumber into a puree. I have to say it was good both ways. The cucumber really makes for a refreshing drink.

Zilla's Guacamole (THE BEST)

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Giving this a four star rating just because it's not the best BUT it's very good. The feta adds a nice flavor to the guacamole.

Patsy's Best Barbeque Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
Giving this only three stars because it was just okay. I made the recipe exactly as written. The beef was very tender but the flavor was missing something. Also the liquid never did absorb completely into the meat. I drained enough liquid off the meat to thicken it up.
