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.

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!

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!!

Sour Cream Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Well. To start, cornbread is as important... and controversial... as the chili its paired with. I use several different recipes, depending on what it's going with. Today I was just browsing, looking for something I hadn't tried yet to go with my Firehouse chili. "Sour cream" caught my eye. I've used it in many things to maintain moisture. Quick breads, sandwich bread, muffins, etc. So I was not surprised when these muffins turned out moist yet properly cornbread crumbly, perfect golden color, perfect golden light crust on top, perfect sweetness. I must admit my hand automatically reached for the homegrown honey jar rather than all that sugar... I restrained myself to just a tablespoon of honey in a halved recipe, and used only 1/4 the sugar. Only real change I made. And that was only b/c I was unscrewing the top of the honey jar before I realized what I was doing. :) Very good recipe. Used unbleached flour, worked fine. Used light sour cream, worked fine. Used homegrown brown and blue eggs, worked fine... probably added to the richness of the color, as they are much darker than commercial white eggs. Muffins baked just through at 375 for 27 minutes. Easy, fast, yummy. My 4 y/o son scarfed FOUR in as many minutes. Will use again. Thank you!

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!

Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Thank you for this great base recipe. I chose to add some white wine, homemade chicken stock and a splash of worcestershire to my olive oil and marinated the veggies for half a day before roasting. Very good. Added fresh thyme sprigs and a little lemon zest to the rosemary, and garlic, green beans and thick red onion slices to the veggies b/c I was very hungry. paired with flash fried lemony rockfish, delicious.

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! :))

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!!!

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.
