Quick and Easy Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
Eggs Benedict is my favorite breakfast. I've had it in hundreds (literally) of restaurants coast-to-coast and beyond. So, I've become quite an expert at preparing and tasting it. Therefore, with much hesitation I finally decided I would try this method of making hollandaise. It was truly an experiment and whoever thought of it has never tasted true hollandaise. Avoid this blender method at all cost. It is not fool-proof. First off, this method does not make hollandaise. It makes a warm mixture of whipped (mostly raw) egg and butter with a little flavoring thrown in. You're better off warming up some sour cream and squeezing in some lemon and food coloring! I really hate to be so critical but I'm embarassed I even tried this in a blender. To make true hollandaise it takes high quality ingredients, the right equipment, and the right METHOD. The egg should be cooked slowly while be whipped to prevent curdling by using HEAT from the double-boiler (not from the butter!). Use WHITE pepper. A true hollandaise should be creamy with that wonderful hint of fresh lemon and should NEVER taste or feel buttery in the mouth as this recipe does. I threw my blender batch out and made it properly. It only took about 7-8 minutes and was luxurious.

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
This is an ok recipe. Except I did not understand why the BBQ sauce is in there. I don't understand it. I replaced the BBQ sauce with 4 tablespoons brown sugar and it turned out much more authentic to Japanese and Korean.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
This is a great recipe. Very simple and delicious. It's better if you use your own salsa instead of store-bought, however (I make salsa all the time in the summer.). Why bother with a box or envelope mix - that have MSG and who knows what else. Try this recipe!

Ground Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
I don't understand this recipe. The mayo made it extremely oily. Why not just use cream instead? My second batch (with cream) turned out perfect and was very rich tasting without the oil and vinegar taste of the mayo.
