Oven Fried Buttermilk Halibut

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
The recipe proportions are a little off for me. I think that there is too much buttermilk, egg and butter for the recipe. However, I made it for two. We had about 4 ounces of halibut each. I used about 2/3 cup of buttermilk and only one egg. I used about a teaspoon of melted butter for each fillet and if I weren't watching my health I would have used more, but 1 teaspoon each was enough. I used Triscut Rye/Caraway crackers. I wasn't sure that the caraway would be a good mix for the fish. Oh my goodness....my first bite I thought wow this would be great on chicken and then I had another bite and I have to say the flavors really meshed for us. I will be using this basics of this recipe for many other recipes for both fish and chicken. Thanks!!!! Plain Ole Bob and Thank you for your service too, Sir!

Homemade Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
This soup is EXCELLENT. I made some changes, but nothing significant except adding oyster sauce (1 tbsp). I used baby bok choy, oyster mushrooms, extra green onions (because I love the flavor). I added sliced water chestnuts, used vegetable broth and chicken broth and panco crumbs. I took the advice of another and boiled the wonton's separately. I can't rave enough about this soup! Thank you SOOO much for posting it!

Pittsburgh Style Chipped Ham Barbeque

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Excellent recipe. I read the other reviews and have to concur that onions are an essential part of what I remember about Chipped Ham BBQ sandwiches. We use Heinz Ketchup of course and chili sauce with brown sugar and a tiny bit of liquid smoke. I will make this recipe as a change up for our recipe. Thanks for submitting it.

Pistachio Crusted Chicken with Raspberry glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
This was an incredible meal. The only things I did different were to use Panco Bread Crumbs with Italian Seasoned bread crumbs. I did follow the directions of some of the other reviews and made a Raspberry dipping sauce. (1/4 cup of seedless raspberry jam, 2 tbps of each orange juice and white wine vinegar and reduced it to a medium thick sauce). I served mine with slightly steamed asparagus and vanilla glazed baby carrots.

Root Beer Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
These were excellent. I am not good at following directions. So, I marinated overnight, but I pricked the chops all over with a fork. I used a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. I started to grill the chops and realized the marinade wasn't reducing as quickly as I wanted it to so I put the chops on the rack while I reduced that sauce. As it reduced I noticed it needed a bit more zip for my liking and I added about a 1/4 of a teaspoon of ground clove to it. This turned out to be a good choice. This recipe is incredible. I will keep my modifications and no matter what this will be made again and again! Thanks Ken from CA!!!

Root Beer Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
These were excellent. I followed the directions mostly. I marinated overnight, but I pricked the chops all over with a fork. I used a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. I started to grill the chops and realized the marinade wasn't reducing as quickly as I wanted it to so I put the chops on the rack while I reduced that sauce. As it reduced I noticed it needed a bit more zip for my liking and I added a couple of sprinkles of clove to it. This turned out to be a good choice. This recipe is incredible.

Baked Potato Salad II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I love this recipe. I had first tried it when I found it in The Three Rivers Cookbook in Pittsburgh over 10 years ago. It is truly a great side dish.

Fried Corn with Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
You have an excellent recipe. However, I made a few personal changes. I roasted my corn in their husks that were also soaked in salt water and just before grilling coated the corn with an infused butter that had freshly ground garlic (use a lemon zester tool) and salt and pepper... I also omitted the MSG...there is no reason to even think that this recipe needs enhancement....

Avocado-Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
I was a bit apprehensive about making this. I love both avocado and mango bit never would have previously considered eating then together. So..chicken me cut a piece from each and WOW! I love the flavor and texture combination. I followed your recipe with two exception I used stevia (a natural sweetener) in place of the sugar and I used no oil. I am certain it would taste great. I felt there was enough natural fats from the avocado to be yummy enough. I also added a de-seeded Roma tomato because I had it on hand. This is an amazing salsa. I agree once you taste it..."you won't be able to stop eating it"...

Yummy Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This was an excellent recipe. Like many of us on this site who are more experienced I made a few changes. I used about 1 cup chopped turkey ham, 2 cups smoked Swiss cheese and 1 cup NY white sharp cheddar. I used 3/4 cup of Aldi's brand of Egg beaters combined with 2 whole eggs. I used a shallot for a more mild onion flavor. Other than those minor changes/substitutions it was incredible. Thanks Pammmy!!!

Tangy Ginger Lime Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
This a great salad dressing and marinade. I substituted Bragg Liquid Aminos for the reduced sodium soy and found it to be the perfect touch. I used it to marinate my tofu in and then I heated in a bit more of the dressing/marinade and served it on a salad with sesame seeds that I had toasted with garlic paste. Yum....
