Delicious Ham Omelette

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
The proportions of this recipe are off. As mentioned by other reviewers, 1/4 cup of oil is way too much. I approached this by using one large potato diced and cooked it in a cast iron pan with just a bit of oil (maybe 1+ Tablespoons) when the potatoes were tender I added the onion and cooked until the potatoes were starting to crisp then added just one clove of minced garlic. 1 cup of diced ham is a lot for one 3 egg omelette - I reduced that to about 1/4 cup. We don't care for cooked tomatoes so I added those to the filling of the omelette. I had extra potatoes that wouldn't easily fit into the omelette so I served those on the side.

Quick Garlic Aioli

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2013
Very nice and oh so easy. I scaled this down but made it as directed. No changes needed. I used this with steamed artichokes but I can't wait to try to with some grilled rosemary chicken.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
Excellent recipe. I would suggest the overnight marinating time. Give the vinegar / lemon juice time to work it's magic on the flank steak. Slice thinly against the grain. Perfect summertime meal.

Pork Rib Rub

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
The overall flavor of this was fine but WAY too salty for us. It really overpowered all the flavors. Sorry I really wanted to love this rub.

Weeknight Skillet Fajitas

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
As written this recipe is lacking seasoning and it would not feed 4 people in my home. With a few minor additions it is REALLY good. I pre-seasoned the strips of chicken with fajita seasoning and let it sit for about 30 minutes. I would suggest using a cast iron pan or a pan that you can good and hot. One of the best things about fajitas is the fast sear that really develops the flavor. I then added the frozen vegetables and sprinkled another teaspoon of fajita seasoning on the vegetables. The frozen vegetables add just the right about of water to make a nice sauce. This is fast and very easy and very tasty with some minor modifications. Serve in warm tortillas with a side of Easy Spanish rice.

Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2013
I made this for breakfast and we both enjoyed it. As written this is very sweet - I cut the sugar to 2 Tablespoons in the apples and 2 Tablespoons in the egg batter and it was plenty sweet. This took about 15 minutes in the 400 degree oven although I think if I had preheated my oven longer it might have been done in 10 minutes. This comes together very fast. I have never had the apple pancake from the Original Pancake House so I can't say how it compares. I did not invert the pancake as the top was prettier than the bottom, next time I would plan on serving right out of the skillet. As a dessert with ice cream this would serve 4, for breakfast it served 2. I used a 10" stainless steel skillet and that seemed to be the right size. Thank you for a tasty breakfast.

Taco Dinner

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2013
I don't know what "1 (11.04 ounce) box taco dinner kit" is - I assume that includes a package of taco seasoning. I cooked the ground beef - drained the grease and then added taco seasoning and the 1/4 cup of water. Cooked that down a bit and then added the bag Birds Eye® Recipe Ready Southwest Blend - which is Corn, Black Beans, Green poblano peppers, red peppers, onions. For us this would lead itself to taco salad or burritos rather than tacos. It does manage to stretch 1 lb of ground beef a long way - it made a lot more than I thought it would. This recipe might be good served over rice for "mexi rice bowls."

Easy and Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2013
Very nice recipe. I cooked a meaty ham bone from the freezer in the crockpot overnight and used the broth from that in place of the water and chicken bouillon. I kind of reserved the method. I cooked the potatoes in the ham broth in a large sauce pan. I cooked the onion, celery, garlic and carrot (not called for in the recipe) in the butter. Added the flour and made a roux using 2 cups low fat milk. I added the seasonings to the roux / milk mixture. Once the potatoes were done I dumped them and the broth into the large pot and added the ham from the ham bone and the corn. If you like larger pieces of potato in your soup leave it as it. If you like a smoother more creamy soup, use a potato masher to smash up the potatoes and broth before adding the the creamy vegetable mixture. The white pepper gives the a very tasty finish. If you are sensitive to pepper cut the white pepper back to 1/2 tsp. I garnished the soup with a little grated cheese and diced chives. Served with a crusty bread it made for a wonderful dinner. Thanks for a good recipe, Cara.

Chef John's Fisherman's Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2013
This was pure comfort food for me. I used Blackened Seafood seasoning to season the bottom of the pan, the fish and added some to the sauce and the potatoes too. I made the spinach and set aside, not everyone in the family likes spinach (silly peeps) so I layered the seasoned fish and the sauce, topped with the potatoes.... reserved some of sauce to mix with the spinach. Cooked the fish at 400 for 25 minutes and then turned on the broiler to brown the top. I had already sprinkled the seafood seasoning on top of the potatoes so it did not take long to brown up. I reheated the spinach with the reserved sauce and spread a layer of that in a shallow plate, topped with the fish and potato casserole. It made a lovely presentation and tasted WONDERFUL. A couple of tips - make sure your fish is fully defrosted and blotted very dry with paper towels prior to seasoning. This can be made with leftover mashed potatoes but re-heat the potatoes prior to layering and baking. There were no leftovers - the pan was licked clean. Good thing I got a picture before dinner!

Slow Cooked Ham and Potato Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
I had to change this up a bit - but used all the same ingredients. I started this stove top - melted the butter and sauteed the onions, a clove of garlic a diced carrot and a 2 stalks of celery (not called for in the recipe) added the flour and made a roux. I stirred and cooked that down, added chicken broth, instead of water and the chicken soup base. Added the corn, parsley, dill and celery seed and chicken soup. Then added the potatoes - brought to a simmer and then added it all to the slow cooker set on low. I would suggest dicing the potatoes fairly small and I think I would omit the chicken soup next time and use use some milk when I made the roux. This is rather salty with the ham, canned soup etc... be careful adding any extra salt. Overall we were very pleased with this soup, I would really just suggest changing the method.

HERDEZ® Drowned Beef Sandwich with Chipotle Sauce (Torta Ahogada)

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
Now this is a great sandwich! I had to change the method a bit, we have an onion hater in the family (silly girl) so I caramelized the onions and garlic in butter and did the chipotle sauce and beef broth in a separate pan. I mixed some of the chipotle cooking sauce with mayonnaise and spread that on the rolls. I put the rolls under the broiler to warm them up and toast them until the chipotle mayo was bubbling. I used very thinly sliced roast beef (slow roast beef for sandwiches on this site) and just dipped the beef into the sauce to just coat it. We like our beef rare so doing it this way didn't cook it any more. Topped with the caramelized onions and a bowl of sauce for dipping. This was a delicious meal that everyone enjoyed. Thanks bd.weld!

Root Beer and Sesame Glazed Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
Delish! Wonderful, full of flavor and not too sweet. I did forget the sesame seeds as a garnish - oh well, nobody noticed. I also did not re-use the marinade but made up a separate batch with the additional ingredients, rice vinegar and sambal etc. for the glaze / sauce. It worked well for us. Very nice flavor combination. Thank you.

Hot Dog Chili Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
This was pretty good but I had to up the amount of chili powder quite a bit. (About 1 more Tablespoon) Mind you chili powders are not all created equally. I think some finely chopped onion & garlic in the sauce instead of the powder would have added that little something that this recipe seemed to lack. Thanks for the recipe, No Baking Papa was a happy camper.

Ham and Egg Frittata

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
The recipe has a lot of potential. I used a 10" ovenproof pan and used 4 eggs instead of 3. Still it was a little thin. This is supposed to be 4 servings but barely was enough for 3 servings. (2 adults and 1 child) As the submitter suggests it is a good way to use up odds and ends in the refrigerator. Peppers or green chilies would be an excellent addition. Also, if you have leftover cooked potatoes you could certainly use those. With a bit of tweaking this would make a fast weeknight dinner served with a large green salad to round out the meal.

HERDEZ® Chipotle Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
I made this as directed but used thin cut skirt steak so it only took a total of 7 - 8 minutes. Let the meat rest and sliced and diced it for small tacos. It went perfectly with finely diced cilantro & onions, tortillas charred on the grill. Easy Spanish Rice and Simple Spicy Salsa - all on this site. Look for the Herdez cooking sauce in the Mexican section - center shelf below the Tapatio sauces. There are 4 flavors and I could recommend all of them.

Simple Spicy Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
We loved this with tacos, chips and spanish rice. You don't really need to cook the peppers, although I do recommend seeding them - wear gloves. Thanks for a fun recipe to add to my faceless 4th of July menu.

Easy Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
All the flavors and measurements are perfect the method did not work for me. I would suggest frying the rice in the oil, add everything else and bring it to a boil. Cover and turn to the lowest setting for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn off the heat, fluff the rice with a fork, recover and let sit covered for 10 minutes.

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers with Horseradish

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
Fabulous! I was scared of the 2 Tablespoons of horseradish so I backed it down to 1 Tablespoon. I actually weighed the meat (which I never do) and I think that for us 3 patties would have worked better than 4. Next time I would use 1 1/2 lbs burger and the full 2 Tablespoon of horseradish. Nonetheless, these were stellar burgers. I used 2 slices real thick cut bacon, cooked crumbled instead of bacon bits. My burger loving hubby LOVED these. Thanks Lisa!

Grandad's Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
With a recipe like this there is absolutely no reason to buy a box mix ever again. I am one of those oddballs that doesn't like syrup on my pancakes so the sugar in this recipe added just the right amount of sweetness. Don't overmix the batter. After flipping they really rise nice and tall so flip them gently and don't smash them down with the back of the spatula.
