Chef John's Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
The turkey was very easy and very good. I did not have the fresh sage and rosemary, so I did not use it. I also used half the salt and did not put the butter under the breast skin. I placed it in my roasting pan and took the lid off an hour before it was done. It turned out beautifully! I did not make the gravy, but used the drippings for soup stock. However, I am sure it would have been as delicious as the turkey. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
I read a lot of reviewers recommendations on this recipe. Since I incorporated most of them and added one of my own, I am not sure that I am rating this recipe at all. This is what I changed: 2 C frozen corn, 3 T chili powder, 2 T cumin, 1 T cilantro, 2 cans stewed tomatoes (chopped), and some leftover brown rice. However, the coup de gras was the 3 C of smoked pork broth. Serve with extra cilantro and lime wedges for topping. This is great served with simple quesadillas. Very awesome!!! I will try using some chicken broth and zucchini. This recipe is versatile, mix it up.

Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
8/7/08 Only three stars because it needs a little tweaking for our taste. The basil was too strong and the rest of the dressing was too bland. Marinating would improve this, which we did not do. The salad was much better the next day. I would reduce the olive oil (1T?), increase the lime juice (1 lime or 4t?), and eliminate the salt. (It makes the cucumbers weep.) Red or green onion would be good in this. Changing from basil to cilantro, you have a different salad. I will definitely make again and report. 8/24/09 Use juice from 1 lime, 1 T olive oil, 1 T dried basil, 2 sm green onions, and omit salt. Marinate several hours or overnight. Delicious! With these changes it is 5 stars.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
This was delicious and so easy! I used only 4 chicken breasts but all of the soup. We had the sauce on egg noodles. Yum! Next time I will add extra mushrooms and serve with grated cheese on top. I had too much sauce with 4 chicken breasts. Maybe leave out the cream of chicken soup.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
This was very easy and very tasty. I used ground turkey, fat free sour cream, and a little taco seasoning in the meat. The leftovers were better than the original because the flavors had a better chance to blend. I will definitely make this again. Thanks.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
This is a very good basic recipe to start with. I tweaked it to our taste with the advice of those that went before. I used 1/2 the catsup, doubled the sauce, and omitted the salt. I used 1 pkg. dry onion soup mix, reconstituted, and added a 4 oz. can of mushrooms with juice to the sauce. I made thinner steaks (6 per lb. of beef). I also used 1 egg per lb. of beef and the patties stayed together nicely.

Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
2/26/07 - This recipe was excellent with a few modifications! I scale the recipe to 27 servings (2 cans black beans) and use a 16 oz. pkg. frozen corn, cooked. Add 1 Tbls. cumin, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/8-1/4 c. chopped cilantro and 1/3 c. fresh lime juice with pulp (1-3 limes depending on size.) Make sure you drain all cans before adding to salsa. It tastes best if you let it chill for 2 days. Excellent over rice! 6/20/06 - I have made this three times already. It makes taco salad wonderful! I just can't get enough of it!

Southwestern Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I admit I did not make this as written. Sometimes you use a good beginning and make to your own tastes. I make it with Thanksgiving turkey and homemade turkey broth. I am not a big fan of cayenne pepper or avocados. I omitted them. I love cumin and tripled this. Then I added corn and black beans. Great soup!

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
I have never really liked traditional ham and beans. That is why, when I found myself with a ham bone, I looked for something a little different. I tried the right recipe! This is great! I used straight pinto beans instead of 15 bean soup. (I am picky about my beans.) I also used left over ham drippings (2 cups) and water(2 cups) instead of canned broth and omitted the salt. I put all but the ham and two of the carrots (I was out of room) in my 5 quart slow cooker. I brought it to a simmer on high, then turned it to low. I added the chopped ham only for the last hour. It cooked for a total of nine hours. It came out full of flavor! Will definitely make again.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
I had a 2 lb. roast. I adjusted the pepper to only 1 teaspoon for a double recipe of sauce. I cooked it in the crock pot with potatoes and carrots on low for 6 hours. I will definitely make it again.

Slow Cooker Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2014
I made this very close to the recipe. My changes were in amounts of ingredients, not type. Used 1 lb. Italian sausage, 1 1/2 cups celery, 3 cans no salt tomatoes, 1 can salted, and no extra salt. Wonderful flavor! Next time I will either use a spicier Italian sausage or more of the spices, at least more garlic and a little black pepper. For me, a little celery goes a long way, but in this it adds so much.

Chicken and Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
First, a disclaimer. I changed the recipe. I used a brick of plain ff cream cheese and (per another reviewer's suggestion) added a packet of Good Season's Italian Dressing Mix. I added a cup of onion and a cup of frozen sliced mushrooms. I cut the chicken in bite size pieces and sauteed it with the vegetables. Mixed in broth and cream cheese and let thicken. Would like to try with sliced carrots and different seasoning to reduce salt.

Carrot Zucchini Saute

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
I made this by the recipe and it was very good. I like my vegetables a little more tender than crisp, so the cooking time was perfect for me. Lightly seasoned w/ no heavy vinegar taste at all. Next time I might try it with a little garlic and some fresh mushrooms.
