Chef John's Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
Great flavor but I agree with some of the other reviewers who say that 1 cup of chicken broth would suffice. While tasty, the sauce was too thin for my taste even after simmering for quite a while.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2015
Very good. It's a versatile recipe that I will be playing with next time I make it. 1/4 cup butter is plenty as other reviewers have noted. I will double the curry because we love curry and also add a couple of cloves of crushed garlic. Sprinkle green onions on top. As other reviewers have said, this recipe can be used with most any chicken 'parts'. I used skinless thighs just to be a bit healthier but I bet that skin would be delicious! Maybe next time I will splurge with that extra fat. Just that once of course...:-).

Perfect Ten Baked Cod

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2015
Simple and delicious way to bake cod! It's very important to use loins rather than filets. Seems like many of the negative reviews were due to overcooked or mushy fish which most likely means the fish was too thin for this recipe.

Spicy Seafood Shell Appetizers

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2015
Quite good - got rave reviews at Super Bowl party. Giving 4 stars because, as many other reviewers noted, some tweaks can make this recipe better. I usually follow a first time recipe as written which I did with this one. It was really tasty and rich but I tend to agree with other reviewers who said it was a little too mayonnaise-y. I used canned shrimp and canned crab meat and had no problem with that at all. I also used prepared phyllo mini tarts as the recipe noted. I live in a major market and found these in my local grocery store but they may not be available everywhere. Lastly, I definitely would kick it up a notch with more hot sauce and red pepper flakes. Personal preference. Overall, very good and with some minor changes..a 5-star recipe! Thanks for sharing.

Feta Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
Quite good. My husband and I ate the whole pot with a loaf of garlic bread. Used sherry instead of wine and canned tomatoes instead of fresh but still delicious!

Chef John's Spinach and Feta Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
Very good...I had some kalamata olives which I added albeit sparingly because of the salt. Turned out just as promised. Note that the video and the recipe are different, at least with regards to cooking the spinach. I sauteed mine. Will make again!

Party Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2014
This is SO good! The different flavors meld together beautifully. I used mandarin oranges instead of the pineapple as another reviewer mentioned. Next time I will try more curry for a bit stronger taste. Yum!

Garlic Cream Sauce over Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
Tasty. Only 4 stars because I used milk instead of cream to save on calories. Also needed a bit more spicing up for our taste so sprinkled a bit of cayenne on top of chicken/sauce. Served on a bed of spinach for a complete meal.

Jay's Hearty Breakfast Skillet

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
I halved the recipe because I only had 4 eggs and it was plenty for 4 people. Used hash browns to save on cooking time like several others and used italian sausage instead of bacon. What fun to experiment with the variety of ingredients that could be used in this fun and hearty breakfast. I put the eggs on top of the whole 'mess' and covered the skillet. The eggs turned out sunnyside up and the presentation was restaurant-worthy. I agree with other reviewers who used cheddar cheese rather than American. Yummy!

Special Italian Easter Pizza

Reviewed: May 9, 2014
Meat lovers unite! As others have noted, this is not an everyday type of meal. But for special occasions or hungry teenage boys...what a hit! I make it in a 9x13 just because of convenience. Springform looks prettier tho. Thanks for the recipe.

Cajun Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
Lovely little recipe. I love how quickly it comes together after a hard day at work. Easy and elegant enough for company. I served with brown rice and artichoke hearts. Thanks!

Sweet Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
WAY too sweet. Between the chai tea and the pound of brown sugar, the sweetness was overwhelming. I doubt if I will try this again, but if I did, I would halve the brown sugar. I had a 9 lb. ham too.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
I would give this recipe one star except that I did not have cilantro which would have added much needed flavor.

Bacon and Tomato Fried Egg Sandwiches with Horseradish Mayo

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
Nothing gourmet about this recipe but sure fits the bill for a hearty weekend breakfast. Simple to make with common ingredients. I love the variations possible in the sauce. We used American cheese but any cheese would be delicious. We baked the bacon and served open face to make it more caloric-friendly.

Thyme-Rubbed Steaks with Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
I just made the mushroom as I had already marinated my steaks. Also, did not have any red wine so used balsamic vinegar. Delicious accompaniment!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
Although I'm rating this a '5' as is, I do think I will boost it up next time. The sauce is to die for. I should have doubled like so many others have said. This recipe is going into my 'box' but I will add peanuts and perhaps some snow peas next time. It would be even better with crunch! If you do not have the Chinese 5 spice...get it..order it online if you have to. It makes this dish..along with the wonderful orange flavor.

Erin's Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Excellent recipe and perfectly heart-warming for a cold winter's day. I doubled the recipe (thank goodness!) and it turned out restaurant-quality. My teenage girls loved it tho they said they would prefer 'chunks' of broccoli. I used my immersion blender to make a really smooth soup but next time will leave some chunks and perhaps make some of the additions suggested by others. If not, it's excellent just the way it is. Thanks!

Sweet, Salty, Spicy Party Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
Simple way to make a great treat. I'm adding it to my recipe box with notes to spice things up next time. I would definitely add more cayenne as a personal preference. Thanks for the recipe.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
Quite good and made the kitchen smell great. How can you go wrong with chocolate and mint? Gave it a 4 instead of a 5 simply because, while delicious, it's not particularly unique. A tasty, crowd-pleasing cookie for the holidays or all year round.
