BBQ Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
Many of the reviews seemed to take issue with the ingredient amounts so I used my cook's intuition and eye-balled everything. I omitted the pepperocinis (better served on the side like Papa Johns), approx. doubled the chicken, kept the rest of the measurements approx. the same, and made TWO medium pizza crusts with the ingredients instead of just one. The key to keeping the chicken moist and flavorful is mixing a few TBSP of BBQ sauce into the cubed chicken before topping the pizza. Otherwise, the edges tend to dry out while cooking. Also, slice the onions super thin so they will cook more quickly. If you have the time, I would definitely recommend making Jay's signature pizza crust over using a store-bought kind -- it turned out crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Homemade crust is surprisingly easy to make, tastes fresher, and saves a lot of money. This pizza tastes great (very close to CPK) but I gave 4 stars because of the modifications. This recipe will probably taste great with some pineapples too (similar to Davd & Buster's BBQ hawaiian pizza that seems to have disappeared off the menu).

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2006
*update* I've made this several times and this makes a top-notch pizza crust with a crispy crust and chewy center. I double the sugar and increase the salt to 1 1/2 tsp because it’s a tad bland as written. I recently substituted 1 C flour for whole wheat flour and found it did not alter the texture. 100% whole wheat made the dough gummy and hard to roll out. Kneading was difficult and messy the first time. I recently tried doing most of the kneading in my stand mixer with a dough hook and then kneaded the rest by hand. This made the dough much more manageable. In the end, I added an extra 3/4 cup of flour (1/2 C flour in the stand mixer & 1/4 C while kneading by hand) but it still came out tender. I baked it on the bottom rack on a preheated baking stone to get the bottom crispy and used corn meal to transfer from the peel instead of flour (a la Pizza Hut vs. Dominos). Made 2 crusts.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
This pie is incredible! To save on calories and make it healthier, you could use sweeter apples such (as fuji) and cut out the white sugar completely. I only used brown sugar and it was still plenty sweet for me. I also added some cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. This is so good, I could eat it every day!

Ricotta Stuffed Squash

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
Yum! This is one of my favorite vegetarian dishes! I top it with plenty of warmed roasted garlic marinara sauce. No accompanying side dish is necessary. It works great by itself. I would caution against overcooking the squash as it makes it watery and mushy. This dish would also work well with some basil mixed into the spinach and mozzarella cheese on top.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
This is a great tasting dish that works well with my preferences for healthy food and my husband's particular tastes. Very few dishes have the distinction of making his list of favorite meals and this is one of them. I just made this chicken again tonight, and my husband spent the whole dinner raving about the flavor and saying "wow!" every few minutes. This is truly a keeper and well-deserved five stars from me and the husband. The only changes I made were cooking with virgin coconut oil (healthier than butter and olive oil, and goes well with the lime), using fresh garlic, and adding 1/4 chicken stock to increase the amount of sauce. I served it with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. It also reheats well, which makes it an ideal lunch to bring to work.

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2004
Excellent recipe! I followed the helpful suggestions by previous reviewers to sautee the mushrooms with garlic before adding the chicken, add more wine to make more sauce, and to cook longer in order to get rid of the alcohol smell (I simmered for 30 minutes). The result was a quick and easy dinner that my husband and guests absolutely loved!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2004
I also thought muffins came out rather bland so I made a few alterations. I would recommend substituting the white sugar with packed light brown sugar; increasing the spices to 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 tsp ground ginger, and 1/2 tsp nutmeg (I did not have any pumpkin spice or ground cloves); and increasing the pumpkin puree to 1 cup. These changes produced more flavorful muffins.
