Chef John's Chocolate Lava Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
oh wow!!!! This is unbelievable! My daughter and I were watching MasterChef and they made a chocolate lava cake. I had to make it, so I went to my favorite website! This recipe was so simple and quick. I was amazed. I melted 4 oz of tollhouse chocolate chips with the butter because that was all I had. It tated like the ones I've gotten at a restaurant! My batter was not thick and I'm sure it is because I used my KitchenAid mixer and didn't attempt to mix it by hand. I did not put it in a bag (i just didn't see the point), I did not refrigerate and I didn't cook it in a pan of water. They did none of that on MasterChef :). Why make more work for yourself. Everyone's oven is different, but I cooked them for 11 min. Next time, I will cook it 1 min more. I will definitely be serving this when I have company over for dinner and to make it easier, I will refrigerate the batter so that all I have to do is pop it in the oven when we are finished eating.

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
This is one of the better stir fry dishes I have made. I only made small changes. I added mushrooms and instead of putting the ginger and green onion with the chicken and vege mix, I added it to the sauce instead. I made it easy on myself and sautéd all the veges together in olive oil. Once tender, I added the chicken for about 5 min, then put in the sauce mixture until it thickened. Excellent and so easy!!

Baked Omelet

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Excellent! Very tasty and healthy compared to other breakfast casseroles. I added mushrooms, onions and diced green & red peppers and sautéd in 1 TBSP of buter, salt & pepper until soft. Omitted the minced onion and mozzarella cheese and used all cheddar. My egg bake was still liquid in the center after 45 min of cooking, will probably use a bigger pan next time.

Hash Brown and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
We thought this was excellent. I don't usually make breakfast casseroles, but this sounded good & easy! I cut the hash browns in half and used a bag (20 0z)of Simply Potatoes Southwestern Hasbrowns, which was enough to cover the bottom of the dish. Increased the eggs to 9 (or 10) and doubled the milk. I like lots of flavor, but didn't think it was necessary to add onion & garlic powder, especially since the recipe calls for (real) onion. I did however use salt & pepper and our spicy pork sausage. I didn't layer the cheese, I just poured it all on top to cover the casserole. So yummy and can't wait for the convenience of having it as leftovers during the week. Anything to make the morinings easier while I'm trying to get the kiddies off to school!

Strawberry Trifle

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
I was afraid that it would just taste like fruit on top of pudding, so I made a few slight changes. I mixed vanilla pudding, 1 cup of milk & 1 cup of sour cream and beat until it thickened, then folded in a tub of cool whip (french vanilla flavored). Layered the cake cubes, FRESH strawberries & blueberries, omitted the bananas because they look yuck after a short time, then the "pudding" mixture. Not only was it delicious, but it was beautiful. It was the right amount of sweetness. It only lasted a day!

Strawberry Pina Colada Pie

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
I loved it! Not only simple, but the taste is so cool and refreshing. I used shortbread pie crust, coconut pudding and also put the coconut in the pie mixture. I used mandarin orange slices (from fruit cup) on top instead of strawberries. Orange, coconut and pineapple seemed a better fit to me than strawberries.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Really loved this recipe! I have made it several times. Followed the recipe exactly the first time and it was wonderful. Since there was quite a bit of sauce, the second time I made it I decided to make it into a casserole and added 8 oz of egg noodles, increased the milk to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup of sour cream to the mix and put it in a casserole dish and cooked at 350 for 20 min. I've also subed ham (cubed) for the chicken and made ham, noodle, broccoli casserole! Kids love it.

Aloha Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Wow! I loved this sandwich. I marinated the chicken with Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce & Marinade. I put it in a ziploc bag and add 1 fresh clove of garlic, grated, and 4 green onions, sliced. I sprinkled brown sugar on the pineapple and grilled that for about 4 minutes. I used a thicker teriyaki sauce to brush on my chicken at the end. It was also from Kikkoman, but had sesame seeds in it. I took a taste of the chicken when it came off the grill and it was fantastic, however; when I put it on my sandwich, I felt the mayo overpowered it and all I tasted was mayo and not the great teriyaki flavors. I will definitely skip the mayo next time. I also didn't use the bacon & tomato. I was out of bacon and was afraid of pairing the tomato with the pineapple, but I might give it a try next time.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I knew when I was putting the salsa on that it would make it watery with too much liquid from the salsa, but decided to follow the recipe anyway because of the reviews. Next time I will find a recipe with a layer of guac instead of salsa!

Mandarin Orange Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Kinda disappointed in this cake. The topping was wonderful, however; the cake had no orange flavor whatsoever! It was very moist, but didn't taste any different than your regular boxed yellow cake. Next time I will try adding some orange extract.

After School Fruit Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
Wow! The taste is amazing! I'm not a huge fan of honey, so I used Agave nectar instead and used 1/2 tsp of McCormicks cinnamon sugar instead of plain cinnamon. I sliced it into pinwheels (like the picture shows), but it kept falling out when my kids tried to eat them. I will try to wrap it tighter next time, but probably just cutting in half would be better.

Parmesan Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This was pretty good. I used mini bow-tie pasta and omitted the green onion. When I added the parmesan cheese it got really thick, so I added some milk to make it creamier, just enough to stir it with ease. I think next time some fresh basil would add a nice touch.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Excellent!! Didn't change a thing. Reminded me of the trex mix bars that I use to get at Trader Joe's until they were discontinued. So happy to come across this recipe!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
These were easy to make and not time consuming at all. I used a TBSP and scooped out the "dough" and placed them on parchment paper. I didn't worry about shaping into balls at that time. By the time I was finished, the dough was all cooled off and I went back and rolled each ball between my hands to make them smooth and round. Very easy and not too messy. My 3 & 5 year old enjoyed putting the sprinkles on after I coated them in chocolate. They liked the cake balls, but I just thought they were okay. Not a fabulous dessert. Since Valentine's Day is near, I used Red Velvet cake and Cream Cheese frosting and covered them in white chocolate.

Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
This was great! Can't wait to make it on our next camping trip. I omitted the butter and tossed the potatoes with olive oil, rosemary, thyme, garlic salt & pepper then added the green beans & sausage. Will add more green beans & sausage next time.

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
These were so yummy and quick to make. I don't think you could mess these up if you tried. I too omitted the tomato soup and I didn't have any chili, so I did without. So I just uesd a can of Hatch's tex-mex enchilada sauce and 2 TBSP of salsa. The sauce was still very good. In addition to the refried beans, I added a can of Bush's Black Bean Fiesta (grillin' beans). It really added a nice flavor! I made my burritos and put them in a baking dish and cooked for 10 min @ 350 to melt the cheese. My family loved it. I will be making this often!

Grilled Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
This is just okay. I wouldn't make again. I followed the recipe, except that I used fresh garlic and only had to cook it 20 min. I should've know that dumping a can of tomatoes on it would not be good. I bought my Mahi Mahi fresh and what a waste of good money and seafood.

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
Very tasty!! I'm not from Louisiana so I had no problem cheating and using canned beans. I used 2 cans of kidney beans and 2 cups of chicken broth. It boiled down nicely and still made the yummy "gravy". I cooked it for 1 1/2 hrs. I added 1 tsp of oregano and plenty of New Orleans Blend Seasoning salt & Creole seasoning instead of "cajun" seasoning. I also added the sausage in the beginning and didn't wait until the end. My 3 & 5 year old loved it. We had no leftovers, so I might have to double the recipe next time.
