Chef John's Rhubarb Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
I chopped the rhubarb instead of dicing, and subbed blueberries for strawberries. Also cut down just a teeny bit on the white sugar because I try to omit what I can. Perfect outcome- I was so happy with it. My grandmother had always made lovely rhubarb desserts and thus my first time attempting to work with rhubarb had some high expectations. This recipe was a perfect base. I'm sure it's delicious with strawberries, too... and if I use them in the future, I bet the white sugar could go down to about 1/4c. without missing it.

Pineapple Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
Easy, quick, and a hit. Added 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp garlic/onion powder, as well as extra chopped pecans to the mix itself. Drained pineapple with a regular colander, and had no problem with the consistency. I did let it set overnight in the fridge before rolling it, and coated with the nuts just prior to serving so they weren't soggy.

Meatless Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I'm giving this 4 stars simply because once I made my own revisions, I ended up with a meal I will most certainly make again. My changes? I didn't have celery, so I left that out. I sauteed the onion (a vidalia) along with the carrot (used 2), the fresh garlic, and some corn kernels. I blended the egg with a third or so of the tofu and about a third of the breadcrumbs in the food processor. I didn't want a perfectly blended texture, so by blending a portion and then mixing the rest of the ingredients by hand, I got a much more appetizing texture. When the blended portion was mixed with the remainder of the ingredients, I stirred in the sauteed veggies and added a few hefty squirts of bbq sauce. The loaf baked for about 30 minutes, then I topped it with the crushed tomatoes (left off the cheddar) and baked for 10-15 minutes more. Came out excellent. Ate it with rice and got 4 large servings. Making it again this week!

Cranberry Chutney I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
We halved the vinegar as suggested and used diced dried apricots instead of raisins. While very tangy, I wouldn't change another thing! I will make it again for sure.

Mississippi Mud Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
I have never in my life made a recipe using 2 sticks of butter... but made the exception b/c it was my husbands birthday. I cooked it in two cake pans for 50 minutes, and the results were incredible. So rich and sinful that we had to give some away.

Nutty Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
This recipe came to my rescue when I discovered that the recipe I was using was incomplete! I was bringing the dessert to a dinner party and thus did not want to experiement on my own. This recipe not only allowed me to save the project, but it proved to be even better than the original recipe I'd used. Thanks!
