Tofu and Cheese Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2015
Twas a little bland AND WAY too little filling.IF I make it again, the cheese mixture will get some extra herbs/spices added to it. I added 8 2" cremini mushrooms that I shredded along with the 2 carrots and whole zucchini, extra mozzarella cheese and extra monterey jack. Used the called for amount of ricotta and tofu. Instead of water, cooked the veggies in 1 tablespoon butter. Since I didn't want to "waste" the vegetable juices, I squeezed the veggies, draining into a container and used it in the sauce. Good thing I added that amount of liquid, about 1/2 cup, because the sauce didn't really pour. Should have added some water or maybe wine to it.

Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
I used a 9" regular pie pan and the filling came right to the edge, so I put a foil covered cookie sheet under it, as a precaution. I used exactly the ingredients as stated, except only 1/2 chopped onion. Most of the batter, ended up rising up over the edges of the pan and dripped onto the foil. Maybe that is why it didn't taste very good and had a strange texture. Should have taken a picture. Would really have been unhappy if it had been all over the oven floor. If I would be dumb enough to try this again, I will use a 10" deep dish pie pan.

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
This was good the first time, but way too oily, as others have commented so I couldn't give it 5 stars. The flavor though, was so intriguing, that I wanted to try it again, but with adjustments to the recipe, it was superb. Since there is sesame oil in it, I left out the safflower oil and cut the vinegar by half. Added 1 teaspoon grated ginger. Oh my! I also only used half the amount of pasta, since I didn't think there was enough sauce for a pound of pasta. Another time I cut up a large chicken breast into bite size pieces, stir fried the meat, threw in sliced raw mushrooms and quartered sliced zucchini. Added to the noodles, it was a complete meal. Next time I am going to use shrimp. Leftover pork or chicken would be great too. Very flexible recipe.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2014
This is a keeper! The only thing I did differently was to use only 1 cup of rice, but still used the same amount of liquids, after other reviewers said it was dry. It was perfect.

Caramelized Onion and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
This was very tasty, but required more milk, because I didn't have the half 'n half and added more butter to make up for the fat content. It took quite a bit of liquid, before they were smooth and fluffy. Unfortunately, I didn't measure, just kept adding, because with the amount the recipe called for, it was dry and lumpy. Maybe my potatoes were too large to start with, but what is a large baking potato? If the recipe had stated 6 pounds of baking potatoes, then it would have been more helpful.

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2014
This is a great recipe. Very good as is, although I needed more cooking time for the potatoes and had to up the temperature to 375°. Might be because of our high elevation. I liked the suggestion of starting the potatoes and then adding the rest of the ingredients. The second time around I added 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, sliced mushrooms and Italian sausage that I had cut up into small pieces and browned. Cut the amount of bread crumbs 1/4 cup and added 1/4 cup Parmesan. So it became the main course!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
Only gave it four stars, because I haven't made this recipe, but have made a similar recipe for many years, but my recipe calls for 1-1/2 Tablespoons curry and no salt or butter. Also you only baste it twice during the baking time of 1 hour. Had forgotten about it until I received this email. Will be making it soon, as it is yummy!

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2014
This was very good as is, reason for the four stars, but thought it could have been cheesier, so the second time around I added another block of cream cheese. Superb! Would now give it five stars.

Italian Herb Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
This should be called Easy Italian Herb Bread. It came together so easily! I measure my flour by weight and figure 4-1/2 ounces per cup. Since I started weighing the flour used in my yeast breads, they come together so much better, no fussing with too much or too little flour. I made a dozen rolls today instead of loaves. For just two of us, I can freeze what I can't use immediately. This bread is far from bland, as a couple reviewers have stated. Maybe they reviewed the wrong recipe. Someone else said they left out the powdered milk. This recipe doesn't call for it in the first place. So make sure you are reviewing the correct recipe, before you knock it. This recipe is a keeper for sure. Look forward to making it for company as toasted garlic bread slices, yumm!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
Very good as is, but much better with more ham. Forget the flour and butter. Maybe because I cooked it longer the second time and mashed the potatoes it was thick enough without the extra starch and fat. I also doubled the ham and chopped it up in the food processor. 3/4 cup diced ham isn't much for EIGHT servings. Cut back on the pepper too and didn't use the salt, because of the ham being salty enough. It was perfect. Next time I am going to try it with finely chopped cooked chicken.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
This was a very good side dish the first night we had it, but as leftovers it was spectacular!! I would only change one thing and that is to chop the onions and saute them before adding to the sliced potatoes. Great suggestion to microwave the sliced potatoes for 8 minutes to cut down on baking time from JMGINGRICH. I did that, because I had to put it in the oven with the ham and couldn't bake it at 400°.

Chef John's Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
I will be trying this recipe again, because the flavor was there, but it was soupy and didn't at all resemble the photo. I double checked the recipe when I had all this sauce. It did indeed call for 1 cup pasta water, next time, I will add a little at a time, or just 1/4 cup or so. I only added 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and it was more than spicy enough with that small amount. I guess it depends on the amount of heat that you like. As I said flavor was great, otherwise. My husband enjoyed it very much, I just would have preferred it to be drier.

Easy Kahlua Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
Very good, when I served it to my friends they said there was something different about them. On the boxed Ghirardelli mix, it called for 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup oil. So I just substituted the Kahlua for the water, rather than using only 1/4 cup and only 1/3 cup oil. Added 1 cup chopped walnuts too. To Gale who didn't think one should use a mix, not everyone is an experienced cook and brownies are not that easy to make from scratch and turn out right.

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
This is very good and quick. Have made it several times as is, except for leaving out the salt and less of the Italian Seasoning. This time I forgot I needed mozzarella cheese, so I used slices of Havarti, that I lay on top of the cubed chicken. Used basil instead of Italian Seasoning. Sprinkled Parmesan cheese, liberally over the topping. It was not bland and the chicken was perfectly cooked, at 400° with convection.
