Feta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
5 stars is the equivalent of an Oscar, just so ya know. This chicken salad is interesting, original, and delicious. I only made 1/2 of the recipe and added the feta to taste. I can't see it as a sandwich filling but as a spread on snooty crackers or crostini, this is a gourmet worthy recipe. :o)

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
This was really delicious but for our tastes, I'll leave the butter out and just use the lime and oil for a warm vinaigrette next time. We had yellow rice and black beans for the sides and everything played well together. :o)

Chef John's Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2013
I made a small batch of this as written. It was too bland for me. The next batch I made, I caramelized the onions, ham, and potatoes before adding fresh chicken stock (no water!!!). Why on earth wouldn't you try to extract as much flavor from the ingredients?!? Mine turned out with a much better depth of flavor from just a few extra minutes work. There's no reason that soup can't be more than the sum of its ingredients. It's a perfectly adequate soup as written but I need more flavor in my soup. Thanks Chef John for a jumping off point. :o)

Lucy's Quick Tonkatsu Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
I've never had Tonkatsu sauce so I have nothing to compare this to but it was delicious! I didn't heat mine in the micro but rather, simmered on the stove for about 20 mins. so the flavors could meld. Absolutely loved it although my other half would prefer a touch less ketchup. What does he know, lol. Thanks! :o)

Rusty Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
Other half said he liked that it was juicy and I did too, BUT.....the flavor was so boring and the marinade smelled weird. The maple with the soy and mayo was pointless since it really added nothing of interest, taste-wise, and again, the smell of it totally put me off. I used steak sauce on mine and I NEVER use that stuff. Not happenin in my house again.

Chicken Piccata with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
I'm not giving this recipe 5 stars because I think if I would have added the liquid from the artichokes and capers, it would have been inedible. Because I didn't, it turned out perfectly. The sauce is delicious but needed to be thickened slightly with a cornstarch slurry. Thanks for sharing. :o)

Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
I'll give it this, it was a pretty good mug cake for the most part. The choc chips are totally unnecessary and made one of the cakes an oozy, nasty, undercooked, mess. I can totally live without this one.

Italian BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
This is absolutely fabulous! The flavors blend together so well and grilled, the sauce caramelizes just beautifully. I have to admit to one very tiny change, though. I added an extra dribble of Worcestershire sauce. I believe this is my favorite pork chop recipe that I've used so far! Thanks so much! :o)

Bessy's Zesty Grilled Garlic-Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
I made this exactly as written. I can't stress enough how unnecessary the saffron is! It adds nothing in color or flavor and it's too expensive to waste. This was also too sweet and I knew it would be but I wanted to give it a shot as written. I'm giving it 3 stars because it was juicy and I liked the spice mix but those are the only reasons. :o)

Chrissy's Sweet 'n' Sour Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
Wow, this was so sweet as written. I tasted it before I added nearly twice the vinegar and it was still too sweet.. My guy hated it and I didn't love it. It just didn't suit our personal tastes but I appreciate that you shared it. :o)

Beer Bread II

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2013
I'm having a hard time rating this one. It was very dense, which I didn't like but it sliced well because of it, which I did like. The amount of sugar didn't play well with the cheese and green chiles either. Not a re-do for me but that's not to say it won't appeal to others. Thanks for sharing, though.

Roasted Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
Have MERCY! I could eat these things all day long! All. Day. Long. They crisp up pretty much like oven fries and they're surprisingly delicious. It's making my low carb (!@#$) diet so much easier. I love you, samanathon! I'm not even kidding. :o)

Lemony Cucumbers

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
I have to agree with the consensus that this dish is bland. On the day you make it. Let it sit a day or two, and it's very refreshing and tasty. I rated it 4 stars simply because I won't ever make it again although I enjoyed trying it. :o)

Good Frickin' Paprika Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
This really IS good frickin chicken! I didn't think the added vinaigrette at the end would add anything flavor-wise but it cuts the heaviness of the yogurt marinade perfectly. Loved it! :o)

Simple Cajun Seasoning

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
I scaled this down since I only needed a couple of tbs. and although I liked it, I had to add some garlic and onion powder. It doesn't taste right without those. It was simple and quick to make, though. Thanks! :o)

Cajun Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
I followed this exactly, although I had to make my own Cajun blend. We marinated some chicken tenders for 30 mins. and then grilled on my cast iron grill pan. We had it sliced on top of a mixed salad with a light dressing and it was delicious! I wish I'd made extra and I will next time because this is a very versatile recipe. Leftovers would make interesting chicken salad, soft tacos, soups, buffalo chicken dip and such. Thank you for sharing! :o)

Mediterranean Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
Absolutely fabulous! All of the spices blended beautifully and as the submitter pointed out, the salt content is just right. You're not getting very much per chop and it enhances the other seasonings. We have one fairly big boneless loin chop left and my guy mentioned that he thought it would be very good sliced, and served on a pita with tzatziki sauce. I agree with him! Thanks for an outstanding recipe. :o)

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
This was VERY sweet and I cut the sugar by more than half. Although I'm sure this salad has mass appeal, it didn't appeal to me. It was fun to try though. :o)

Brown Sugar-Glazed Home-Style Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
Recipes by Clorox? Whoda thunk? I have to say that although there was nothing wrong with this one, we didn't care for the texture that oatmeal imparts. It reminded me of school cafeteria meatloaf and that was not a good thing. I think I'll stick to a breadcrumb based meatloaf. :o)

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: May 28, 2013
Absolutely delicious! Because I typically use chicken tenders rather than breasts, mine turned out just a smidge too sweet. Next time I'll adjust the brown sugar but that's the only change and I'll make it only to accommodate the cut of chicken I like to use. We just loved this! :o)
