Rubbed and Grilled Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
This was really good and really simple. Will it replace bbg pork aka bbq butt, no. But this made a nice juicy pork loin with little effort. I cut the recipe in half (2.5 pork loin). I used garlic powder and my own salt. I never quite know the proportions of garlic and salt in the commercial mixes so I avoid them . Onion salt never tastes like either, I never use that vile mix and left it out. Other than that modification I cooked on my Weber E320 over med-lo off med-lo for 50 minutes and we had a perfect 148 degrees. No flipping required. My roast had a nice 1/4 inch layer of fat on top, No sauce required. Also added some pecan chips to my my smoker box on the weber. It worked well with this recipe.. The outside was perfect not at all black just a nice yummy blend of spices and herbs.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2014
This was good very good. I used Mahi Mahi and it fried up beautifully. The sauce was excellent. Perhaps a little quibble with the cayenne pepper. I like spice food and sometimes very spicy food. There are many jars of hot sauce in pantry. There is also some really good cayenne pepper. I used a third of teaspon and that was plenty. A full teaspoon would have been incendiary .

Mediterranean Couscous

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
This was really good. A simple way to make a flavorful couscous side dish. Off season so I diced a good quality canned tomato. This is a keeper and a staple item . It was a perfect side dish to my lamb kebobs marinated in olive oil, rosemary, thyme, garlic and balsamic vinegar. I also served with a medley of grilled red pepper, poblano pepper and leek. Edit.. Corrected grammar and punctuation .

Tomato Sauce with Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
This was really good. In fact it may very well become my go to sauce recipe. No fresh Basil int the fridge so I used the appropriate equivalent amount of Penzy's dried basil and a tablespoon of minced fresh parsley. I used Hunt's tomatoes and Hunts tomato paste and good locally made Italian sausage. This recipe needs nothing extra. I didn't need to add sugar, any other seasoning, and it did not even need the final slat and pepper. Good recipe...

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
These were really good. A keeper recipes. I cut the recipe for two and perhaps my tomatoes were a little large and ran out of the drye batter ingredients. I liked the slight tucker cut than I used previously.

Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
It is good, very good . I made from local fresh Roma tomatoes. I peeled but did not seed the tomatoes. the local tomatoes are not as sweet as some, so I had to a couple of pinches of sugar and salt to taste. Other than that i made according to the recipe. I used 2 3/4 lb tomatoes and got a quart of sauce. Next time we make a larger quantity.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
Mediocre waffles. Too much baking powder leaving a sort of metallic odor during cooking and flavor when eating. . Also not nearly as ethereal as waffles made from beating egg whites separately from the yolks. My favorite recipe uses the same flour, three eggs separated and beaten separately, half as much fat twice the salt. They make waffles with a super light interior and nice crunch to the outside. These had the crunch but the inside was heavy and tasted of baking powder.

Maple Cajun Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
I am rating his on what I think it should tast like. I want it to be good. The problem is that in our market a Mahi fillet is a section of a fish which is nearly 2 inches thick at thickest side and perhaps 1 to 1 1/2 at the other. Brain went to sleep on this one. That is I didn't look at the picture . You can't cook a 2 inch piece of firm fish in 5 min per side particularly with sugar on it. So, cooking it longer started to burn my Vermont maple syrup. Rescue , some water lid and pan roast. It was rescued but slightly bitter from the burned sugar. So next time, lower temp, some water in the pan and a lid from the beginning . I will update my review when I adjust the cooking process for thick fillets.

Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This was simple amazing . No I do not come from Louisana. I am not an expert. I came across a really good andouille a while back pulled a link from the freezer. There was some file in the pantry and I made the Cajun spice from about.com from the other spices in my pantry (Penzy's is like a candy store to me). This had a real depth of flavor, some heat ... Just enough. I did add some chopped shrimps at the end. I also cut the recipe for two and found I needed to add some water a couple of times which extended the cooking time. Not a fault of the recipe.. I can cook a great pot of fluffy rice in 20 minutes or a smooth creamy rissoto in 35. I have never mastered the art of cooking rice with other ingredients like this recipe. Someday I will. But this was really really yummy.
