Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Real juicy! Started our bird breast side down for the first 45 minutes and then turned it breast side up for the rest to crisp the skin. Added some fresh sage, oregano and rosemary to the cavity with the celery. Scattered small potatoes and baby carrots in the cast iron pan with the chicken. Really, really good. Thank you for posting! It's a keeper.

Cilantro Serrano Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Great idea for cilantro and garlic! I tried it another way for piping into little pickled sweet peppers: I just used one 8oz brick softened cream cheese, one bunch cilantro and 2 cloves garlic with about 1/2t salt. Threw it all into the processor and let it blend til light green, then chilled, scooped it into a ziplock bag, snipped the tip and used it for the pepper filling. Beautiful little appetizer with an excellent taste, really complemented the pickled sweet red peppers. Filled about 30 pepper with some left over for crackers. Thanks for the great idea!

Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Easy and fast to make, a big hit with the men and I even used canned peaches and pineapple with most of the juice poured off. Served with vanilla ice cream and it was delish!

Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Excellent way to use up all that garden bokchoy. I used the craisins as shown in the pic. I mixed the dressing up in a jelly jar and chopped the rest and threw that into a bag and took it camping. Gave the almonds and ramen noodles a quick toasting in some melted butter and tossed it all together. As someone said, you could double the bokchoy as the dressing is more than enough for a bigger salad. It was really delicious and held up very well on the camping trip. I will definitely make this over and over again. Thank you!

Whole Egg Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Makes an excellent mayo. Couple tips: Lemon juice for part of the vinegar really brightens it up. Also, if you have a stick blender, put everything into a wide mouth jar, place your stick blender all the way to the bottom and turn it on. Wait for a second until it starts to emulsify at the bottom and then slowly pull the blender towards the top. By the time you get there, you'll have mayo right in the jar that you'll keep it in! No more cleaning out a blender or food processor!

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Really excellent recipe that is easily tweaked for personal taste. I followed everything with a few additions that we like: Cooked 1/2# bacon and used the grease for the onions/garlic instead of olive oil. Swapped finely chopped broccoli for mushrooms. Garnished with crumbled bacon, lots of fresh basil and freshly grated parmesean cheese. Finished it all off with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Really colorful and delicious and I was requested to 'please' make it again. Definitely putting this into my 'easy' supper rotation.

Angel Food Candy

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I'm giving this 4 stars because I'm sure it would be good if only I hadn't messed up. The sentiment that "sometimes the purpose of our life is only to serve as a warning to others" applies here. I'll warn ya. If you don't have dark corn syrup you CANNOT, repeat CANNOT substitute molasses. My first attempt ended up with a nice light crisy blop of carbon and my house smelling like burnt sugar for a couple days. On the second attempt I followed the advice of a poster that suggested some additional time in the oven, which ended up with a tinge of burnt taste... enough to ruin the batch. Bummer that, since the texture was wonderful and I could get a hint of the delicious candy that it should have been. Oh well, I guess it's not my year for angel food. Just wanted to lend a word to the wise.

Pear and Prosciutto Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Very excellent base recipe! Rated 4 stars instead of 5 for unnecessary prep time. I made a couple preparation changes which simplified and cut the time . 1. Whizzed olive oil and raw garlic with stick blender, spread on pizza crust and skipped the pre-baking garlic step . 2. Sliced pears thinly and skipped pre-baking them as well. They were nice and tender nonetheless. Substituted feta cheese for the mozzarella, which gave a great tangy-ness against the sweetness of the pears. My 14 y/o daughter said "this taste's awesome!" and hubby said, "you could open a restaurant with this pizza". Will definitely make again with the above changes. Thanks for the great idea, Bostoncook!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
Delicious! Used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2C white flour, sprinkled the top with 1/2 cup brown sugar and a little cinnamon before baking, but kept the rest per the recipe. Very moist,really excellent! Next time I'll throw in a handful or two of hickory nuts and some craisins. Thanks for this most delicious cake recipe.

In-a-Pinch Ketchup

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
Excellent, flavorful, spicy... really good ketchup. I'll be making my own from now on with this recipe. Last night my dinner guest said out of the blue "this ketchup is really excellent". Now, that's something when people notice the ketchup, huh. Thanks for posting this recipe!
