Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2004
My friends and I are HUGE blue cheese fans. This dressing rocked! Even using low fat ingredients. The wings were okay. Didn't turn out very spicy, even with a whole bottle of habanero sauce. Still, flavor and texture were terrific, especially with the dressing!!!

Nana's Southern Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Definitely grate your carrots and onion. Also added some Louisiana hot sauce, ditched the milk. I like my dressing to stick to my cabbage. Very good recipe, something I'd been pretty much using all my life. :)

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
The changes make this a five-star muffin. Sub 1/2 the white sugar for brown. Mix with shredded and diced apples first to soak while you prepare the rest. Add nutmeg and cinnamon and about 1/2 to 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce. I used two golden delicious apples, about the size of a baseball, and was able to completely omit the vanilla. Moist, fluffy, sweet. Yum.

Zesty Grilled Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Terrific idea. Cut the soy sauce drastically, like, by 2/3 (used reduced sodium soy sauce, also) and doubled the brown sugar. Used fresh squeezed lemon juice, also. We loved it!!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
We really enjoyed the flavor of this meatloaf. Even over cooked. :) Forgot to set the timer. I absolutely LOVED the glaze, my fiance still added ketchup... but I think he did that out of habit. I doubt he tasted it before he slathered the ketchup on. Followed some reviews like putting sauce bottom and top, making it in a casserole dish to be able to drain a couple times and so on. Very good. Thank you!

Hamburger Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
Terrific starter recipe. Another reviewer said it right: you probably can use just about any kind of veggie. And creamy soup. We used Condensed cheddar cheese soup, added a little milk, mixed it with browned ground turkey that was cooked with the onions and garlic, with some basil and pepper. Topped with french cut green beans and homemade mashies with a colby/jack shredded cheese mix on top. Baked until cheese good and melty. Fiance said a definite 'make-again' !!! Thank you!!

Rolled Flank Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I'm sure this is great as is, but I didn't have some of these things so this is what I did: I had some milanese steaks (SUPER thin-cut steak), lined them with thin sliced provolone, lined that with fresh baby spinach, rolled it up tight, wrapped it tightly with raw bacon, pinned it with toothpicks and laid it in the casserole dish on its side. Then I drizzled it with worcestershire and sprinkled it with garlic powder, fresh ground black pepper, a pinch of thyme and paprika. Then just cook to temp. Absolutely delicious!!!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
so far so good. the 2 hour taste test is a success. some things i had to change due to materials on hand: used Killian's Irish Red Lager, 1/2 a bottle (what kind of beer you use makes a difference!), used fresh bacon, 4 slices. Omitted celery. Browned other veggies in bacon drippings. Substituted Kielbasa for the Italian sausage, also browned in bacon drippings. Used 1 lb gr.chuck and 1 lb gr.turkey, again, in the bacon drippings. Used 1 can each of dark red kidney beans, light red kidney beans and great northern beans (had no regular chili beans on hand). All spices stayed the same. I have to say, this was surprisingly easy to prepare, considering the rather imposing list of ingredients. I will make this again, hopefully with the ingredients the recipe calls for, just to try it. But the way its turning out now.... Delicious, thick, hearty, loaded with meat and veggies, with a nice solid kick to it. I'm impressed. And I'm a chili critic.

Potato Leek Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Added bacon, cooked leeks in bacon drippings, butter and wine, added a block of cream cheese and a small container of sour cream. This soup is a meal in and of itself. I've made it several times, always delicious.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2013
As Miss Rena says, this dough is meant to be simple. Its not fabulous. Its not gourmet. It IS a wonderful, quick, easy, almost fool proof recipe for a very yummy pizza dough. I always make a recipe exactly the way written the first time, regardless of what i want to adjust. And I rate it based on that, not on my tweaks. However, I did not have enough regular flour on hand, and no vegetable oil, just olive oil. So i did half wheat flour, half white, and subbed olive oil. This crust turned out a perfect, medium-thick chewy, breadlike 13" pie. It required a little kneading on the flatboard for a couple of minutes, to be able to roll out, but i did not wait for it to rise. No need. I rolled it out on my pizza stone, and pressed the middle out just a little extra so it baked thoroughly in 28 minutes at 375. My son and I loved it. Will use this over and over. And when I have the time, i'll play with it. Parmesan, fresh herbs, garlic... this recipe can do alot, but its great as is, without a doubt!

Beef Sirloin Tip Roast with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
I am giving this recipe 5 stars b/c I am sure its wonderful as is. As a matter of fact, my mother made her roasts very similar and they were delicious. However, I changed it rather drastically. I used a montreal-type seasoning blend with extra thyme and garlic powder coated all over the roast, liberally. Then browned hard and fast, normal pan, high heat. Transferred roast to ceramic casserole. blended pan juices with broth, red wine and just a touch of liquid smoke and worcestershire. added to roast, baked for 1 hour at 350 for rare-mid-rare center. poured juices from pan back to skillet. Added half a sliced onion, a cup of quartered fresh mushrooms, about a tablespoon of whole peppercorns, a few thin slices of beef leg bone with marrow, a bay leaf, garlic powder and fresh thyme. reduced by almost half. meanwhile, made a 'scratch roux', which is just some melted butter whisked constantly with regular flour over med heat until it turns from buttery yellow to deep gold (just long enuf to kill the raw flour taste and make sure its whisked super smooth). Add to reduction, whisk again to blend gravy, slice your roast, serve mushroom/onion/peppercorn gravy over top. DELICIOUSNESS. Thank you for the inspiration Jim!

Chef John's Salt Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
Changed nothing about the ingredients, just tweaked the method of cooking (I have roasted many a fowl in my career). I preheated my cast iron skillet so that when i laid the chicken in it, the bottom/thighs got a nice sear (keeps the dark meat cooking at same rate as white). Then, after about 30 minutes on the high heat, i shut the oven all the way off and let the chicken sit in the cooling oven for another 20 minutes. This lets it continue to cook, but will taper off and seal the juices in. Just don't open the door! This chicken turned out so beautiful golden brown, crispy outside, super moist and tender inside. Thank you chef, for the courage to use so much salt! :))
