Jambalasta

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2014
Delish. Made it exactly as written except we reduced the amount of pasta as we are only three. I also reduced the amount of hot sauce to 2 teaspoons. That was a mistake. It needs the full tablespoon. I believe it will round out and balance the flavours and shouldn't make it too hot at all. I didn't have diced tomatoes, so I used the same amount of italian plum tomatoes I had on hand and took my scissors to them. This dish will be definitely be made again in our house as even my teenager snarfed it. Next time I might try what one of the other reviewers stated and saute the onions and garlic and then toss everything except the shrimp in the slow cooker for the day to slowly let the flavours evolve and then add the shrimp near the end to cook through. Oh and if you have a sucky husband like mine, buy larger count shrimp so it's easy to remove the tails so HE doesn't have to!!!

Sherry Braised Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2014
This recipe sounded so delicious that I went out immediately and got the ingredients to make it for Sunday dinner. It wasn't cheap but the flavour and the way it made our house smell was reminiscent of Sunday family dinners when I was growing up. I made it exactly as laid out in the recipe except I forgot to "bring ribs mixture to a simmer" before putting it in the oven. For us, I think Chef John's timing worked better. I left it in for the extra hour as several reviewers stated and it was fall off the bone delicious but we prefer ours still on the bone like he has it in the video. We served it over homemade mashed potatoes with thyme roasted beets. It was simple, straightforward, tasted unbelievable and SO worthy of company. As Chef John says "Enjoy"......you will!

Pear or Apple Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2014
Made it almost to specifications....I had one extra really ripe pear that I added. We loved it with vanilla gelato. The house smelt fantastic while it was cooking. Yum Yum and while I write this, my husband is busy licking his plate!!!!!!

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
Made this recipe tonight. The package contained 9 not 8 chicken thighs and I may have been a little more generous with the Rosemary and Oregano but my family loved it. My husband is currently in the kitchen on his second round. The flavour was well rounded and delicious.. Thank you.

Maple Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
Made it exactly as written. My family loved it. My graham crust burnt around the edges but that is my oven's fault not the recipe's. I might try it next time with a pastry crust instead and I agree with the review from Starbrite, a touch more butter in the topping as it was a bit too crumbly. It had great flavour and was super easy to put together. I used the graham crust recipe from this site.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 12, 2014
We made this recipe exactly as written using Montreal Steak Spice and marinated it almost 24 hours. We placed it on the onions as others had suggested. The house smelled amazing, the flavour was very good and my husband loved the onion addition. Next time I think we'll increase the heat to 375 to have the sauce reduce more and caramelize. Very tasty, thank you.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
The first day I would have given it 4 stars BUT by the 2-3 day, because we were taking it for lunches, the flavours had really melded together. I couldn't find regular broth in cans so I just followed another reviewer and used a tetra pack of chicken broth, a deli roast chicken instead of canned and added the oregano, cumin and chili powder as suggested and through it all in my slow cooker with a bit of lime juice. I've just made my shopping list to get the ingredients to make it again. Thank you Terryn for submitting a wonderful recipe that can be adapted so easily.

Tomato Bisque III

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
My son wasn't feeling well and wanted cream of tomato soup...the canned stuff. I remembered saving this recipe and decided to make it instead so he would be getting something healthy with chicken broth in it. The only modifications I made were 2 tbsp of sugar instead of 3 because I ran out and OMG, it was delicious! My son came downstairs because it smelled so good and then devoured two large bowls!! This was so easy and quick and now a staple in our house. Thank you!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
I made these exactly as written but was able to portion them into twelve muffins instead of ten because of my pan. These came out the lightest, fluffiest muffins I have ever made. My husband had three within fifteen minutes and said they were "freekin awesome". These will be part of our Christmas morning tradition!!! Thank you.

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
This is my first ever post but have read many. We made this brine exactly as described and can add that make sure you have a large enough container to hold the two gallons because it's worth it. We brined our 14 pound bird for 36 hours and then rinsed it thoroughly as other posters have indicated for the full two minutes to avoid saltiness. We then applied a wet rub. We decided to put it on the BBQ as one poster had said. We never had to baste, not once. Our family said it was the best bird they have ever eaten. I have sent this brine recipe to all of them and we will never go back to putting our bird in the oven and just basting every twenty minutes again. I'm writing this as I am eating a piece of cold leftover turkey and it's still moist!
