Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
4.75 Stars! A little sweet but it was a nice alternative to regular old yam recipes. Only change I made was as another poster suggested, I used Rice Crispies vs. Frosted Corn Flakes. A huge hit with the family.

Biscotti -- Tweaked Michele Flannery's Anise Walnut Biscotti Recipe

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
DELICIOUS! KEY NOTE: dough is very sticky so I allow for a bowl w/1 or 1.25 cups add'tl flour on the side for my hands when working the dough. They still turned out wonderfully. I gave it 5 stars even though I altered it because both my parents are from 100% Italian families & these cookies were much better than our family recipe. Ours are always so hard they should be dunked in coffee. These were cookie-ish yet firm & were a huge hit at my Italian family at Thanksgiving. I followed ingredients as indicated minus the anise (not a fan of anise) and once basic recipe was completed, I split into two batches. Batch 1 Almond Biscotti: I added 1.5 t pure almond extract & almonds. Batch 2 Maple Walnut Biscotti: 2 t immitation maple & chopped walnuts. Baking times differ just keep an eye on them. Once cooled I added white & dark chocolate. Yummy!

Oven Roasted Rosemary & Garlic Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Thanks for sharing JMRYGH! I'm sure this recipe would be delicious as is but after reading many reviews, I tweaked to my tastes. Did the following: Peeled & Diced Russett Potatoes & Chopped Baby Carrots in halves. In Ziploc Coated with: 2 parts Extra Virgin Olive Oil to 1 part Wesson Oil. minced garlic, sea salt, fresh crushed black pepper, rosemary, dill, a dash of lemon. Put a big 14" Chef Todd English Green Pan in the oven & preheated to 475 degrees. Tossed the veggies in ziploc bag really well and added to heated pan. Heating the pan helped to sear the bottom layer (I had a full pan of diced & had to do something to quicken the cooking). I'll try the exact recipe next time! I always wanted to try these type of potatoes! Yummy

Marinated Chuck Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Delicious! I made 2 in my crock pot already. Tweaked & used others' suggestions a bit. Here's what I did: Olive oil vs. veggie; red wine vinegar vs. cider; cut up a few onions & added some montreal seasoning. I doubled the recipe for ample sauce in crock pot. The 1st roast I followed suggestions & marinaded for 2 days, placed in crock 7 hrs on low. Delicious! 2nd roast I put marinade ingredients (doubled) into crock & heated up, once hot, I dropped the FROZEN roast into crock, cooked on low for 8 hours - agains DELICIOUS! I try to always defrost meat in fridge before crocking but when time is tight I know it can work with a frozen roast and double batch the marinade ;) Superb recipe. Thanks!
