Asian Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2015
A solid Asian marinade. Thighs won't dry out as much as breasts with this marinade. It burns easily so you'll either have to raise the grill away from the heat or supervise VERY closely. I cheated and used foil. Reduced the marinade by half and served as a sauce. A green salad with mandarin oranges, sliced almonds, and Asian dressing was a great side.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
This recipe produced a rich, moist cake with strong banana flavor. I didn't give it 5 stars because I was hoping for a slightly lighter cake texture. Hard to do with so much banana in the batter - but that's what gave it such great flavor! Frosted with Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting from this site. Together it's a winning combination that's close to perfect.

Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
I left the coconut extract out because I think the flavor of an imitation extract would have detracted from the natural flavors of the other ingredients. Using a stand mixer with the butter at room temperature and the cream cheese still slightly cool made a thick, smooth, spreadable frosting. Frosted "Banana Cake II" from this site. Both recipes are VERY easy.

Grinch Kabobs

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
My rating is for it's creative appearance. This recipe inspired my Grinch Brunch menu for Christmas: - Grinch kabobs - "Who Hash" (any hash - I made potato and breakfast sausage with onions, red & green pepper) - Eggs - Stolen (because the Grinch "Stole" Christmas) As for the taste... the kabobs are best served with a yogurt dip or on a long skewer to garnish a fruit smoothie.

Butternut and Apple Galette Recipe | Rachael Ray Show

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
GREAT potential. The crust needed to be thinner and their was too much of it. Also had to raise the oven temp to 400 to get it to brown. Next time wouldn't use all of the dough, or perhaps use a bigger squash and more apple for the same amount of dough. Was dry - some unsweetened whipped cream would be nice.

Favorite Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
Very sweet. I simmered my sauce much longer on a very low heat and it brought out the onion flavor. With so much sugar it burns easily on the grill. It would be better to brush the chicken with oil, grill and baste with sauce at the end. Will mince the onion and reduce the honey slightly next time.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
With the addition of vanilla and chopped walnuts and baking 22 mins. this is a 5-star. Picked this recipe because muffins are quicker and freeze better than banana bread. As with any muffin recipe the directions should say to mix just until the flour is incorporated, not "mix until smooth."

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2014
This soup was just what I was hoping it would be. A good quality chicken broth (or homemade) is the key ingredient. I used mild Italian turkey sausage because it's leaner than pork and cooked it together with the onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes to bring out the flavors. Substituted kale for spinach and half & half for cream. If making this soup for the first time you may wish to reduce the red pepper flakes - you can always add more at the end if it's not spicy enough. Next time I'll add some carrot strips at the end for a little color.

Chef John's Cioppino

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
The lemon rind and oregano gave the broth a bitter flavor, so I added a teaspoon of sugar. Used chicken broth in place of water, and also added a teaspoon of fresh thyme.

Rosemary Lemon Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2014
I used olive oil instead of butter. Next time I'll also make up some of the herb butter mixture with roasted garlic (instead of raw) and serve it with chicken as the original recipe does. The roasted garlic will let more of the rosemary shine through.

Pina Colada Ice Pops

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
As written this recipe merits only 3 stars, but I think there is great potential. Next time I'll use a very ripe fresh pineapple instead of canned. A few drops of rum flavoring might be better than the vanilla for a true pina colada taste. Decreasing the coconut milk to 1/2 a can would allow more of the pineapple flavor to shine through. I'm trying to avoid sugar, but some sugar and fresh lemon juice would brighten the flavor.

Easy and Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
Great soup for a cold winter supper. Chose this recipe over others on the site because of the cauliflower and when I went to the grocery store they were sold out of cauliflower! Since the soup was short a vegetable, I added diced carrots. Omitted the salt, reduced the garlic to one clove, added sliced scallions, and minced fresh parsley. Think it would be even better with the cauliflower. Good with or without shredded cheddar cheese on top.
