Chef John's Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2015
Only thing I added was a little more brown sugar (about 1.5 TBS) This recipe is supposed to serve 8, but that doesn't include one big guy and a teenage boy! lol I did let it sit for a couple of hours. I may add some chopped Bok Choy next time. This was a huge hit, we'll be having it again soon, thanks Chef John!

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2014
Thanks for posting an old fashioned favorite Christmas cookie to add to my holiday collection. My neighbor lady growing up always made these. I put mine in a shallow round tupperware container to store and shake the confection sugar on them. For those with crumbly cookies, could be the ingredients. Real butter and real vanilla is a must for best flavor and consistency. Nearly powder grinding the nuts makes for easy to ball cookies. We aren't peppermint fans, so I just went with the usual confection sugar coating, once rolled while hot, another time when cool.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2014
Yum!! As the other reviewers said, 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup peanut butter and 3 cups confection sugar. Very easy, tasty fudge. My new go-to for PB fudge. If you got pebbles, it was probably boiled too long. 2 minutes with a timer, take it off the burner, add PB and vanilla, pour over confection sugar and it should be fine:)

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
Very good and very easy. Like others said, cut down on the sugar for cream cheese mix and topping. (3/4 c with cheese, 1/2 for topping) no honey needed. We liked it warm and cold!

Bourbon Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
This was very good. After reading reviews, I also used 1/4 cup more of dark brown sugar, fresh minced garlic, grated ginger and 1/2 minced shallot. Marinated it overnight. During the last 20 minutes of baking, I added broccoli florets. We had over Basmati rice. We will have this again.

Beef Lo Mein

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2014
This was a hit! My guys loved it. After reading reviews, I made 1 1/2 times the sauce, and just a bit less of the oyster and chili garlic paste. I also used rice noodles. Thanks for a wonderful delicious Beef Lo Mein recipe, definitely a keeper.

Butter flavor Crisco and more salt, like others said. Other than that, don't change a thing for the best pie crust recipe ever.

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2014
I was so happy to find this! I used to make this as a sauce for oven baked pork chops with sliced onions until I lost the recipe. Only thing I added was a dash of celery seed and doubled the sauce. Thanks for getting this back in my recipe collection, we've missed it!

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
Excellent cheesecake. I always read the reviews for tips. I used a pan of water on the lower rack, as well as 3-8 oz of cream cheese and 8 oz of sour cream. I also lined my spring pan with parchment to avoid any metallic taste. Aging a day at least makes it even better. Some reviewers wrote its "not authentic" Italian. Yes, you could use Mascarpone and next time I may. As an Italian American, let me remind those reviewers that when most Italians first came to the States, homeland recipes were altered with local ingredients. True Italian ingredients were not available like they are now. Update: This time, made it with 16 oz of Mascarpone, 8 oz cream cheese and 8 oz sour cream. Delicious!!!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
This IS the best! Tastes like the kind my grandma made. Very moist, flavorful. I didn't use any crumb topping, we liked it just as it was. I took advice from others and baked it at 325 for 1 hour and about 10 minutes.

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2014
I love the recipes (always a guide) and the reviews, so we can adjust to taste. Halved the ketchup and I used half the amount for brown sugar (dark). More bacon, kept everything else the same. Turned out wonderful, we will be having these again.

Egg Foo Yung II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2014
Good base recipe for egg and veges. I used pork only, cooked with Teriyaki sauce, Chinese 5 spice, fresh ginger and Lawry's seasoning. For the minced veges, I used bok-choy, mushrooms, sweet onion, fresh garlic and a small sweet red pepper, along with bean sprouts and chopped bamboo shoots. The sauce wasn't flavorful enough for us, so I added a bit of Chinese 5 spice and a bit of Teriyaki, in addition to soy sauce. I used low sodium chicken broth.

Old Fashioned Rhubarb Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2014
GREAT flavor, happy to use the rhubarb my in laws brought me from their farm. This was the first time I've used rhubarb to bake. My older relatives used to make different kinds of pies/cobblers/jams when I was growing up with rhubarb and I miss it. An 8 x 8 dish was perfect size for dessert, as some others noted for the cobbler. I added a pint of raspberries, yum. Thanks for the recipe!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2014
Only changes I made were using smoked paprika, definitely use white pepper (it's different than black pepper flavor and really adds) also used fresh garlic in marinading it overnight, instead of powdered. Excellent chicken, family loves it.

BBQ Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
Good idea, but next time I will grill fresh meat on a slow charcoal grill, off to the side of the grill to prevent burning (I don't have a smoker) for 20 minutes or so on each side, after some Lawry's seasoning. Then take it off and put it in the oven or slow cooker with bbq and garlic powder. Grilling first should take care of the outer fat, and keep the meat moist.

Mole Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2014
!Santo moly! this is a GREAT recipe. Didn't change a thing for ingredients, except using olive oil in place of lard, as someone suggested. I'm glad I went with dark chocolate, instead of semi-sweet-two very different flavors. Only prep I changed up was using my hand held immersion blender, gradually adding anything cooked in the skillet, into the pot and blending in each addition. We love authentic Mexican food, which is hard to find in Ohio. Just another reason to vacation in Mexico:)
