Chef John's Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
This was one of the best turkeys I have ever delivered to the table! I would have never thought to have placed it on a bed of vegetables instead of a metal rack. The juices from the pan and stock made for a fabulous gravy. The only thing I did differently was I stuffed the bird. Thanks for the great tips, Chef John!

Ann's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
I like the flexibility with this recipe. It beats buying it in a box! My local grocer only had Orzo, which I actually prefer. I keep Knor bouillon cubes in my pantry at all times. It is more seasoned, so I didn't have to add extra salt. This was a perfect compliment to the Lemon Chicken Piccata, also on this site.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
Very much like the one's I've made for years. These had a special kick with the green salsa. The ingredients were balanced quite well. Not too mild, not too hot. A great standard for those who love pinto beans!

New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
The buttery tang from the sauce is divine! This was an easy and different way to prepare new potatoes. The capers gave the dish that extra zing! They were the perfect accompaniment to the tri-tip roast I served for company.

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
I was a bit skeptical at first with all of the seasonings and salsa ingredients going on. This dish was wonderful! The combination of flavors melded nicely. Be sure to take a bite of the salsa with the salmon for the full flavor experience. Thanks Mazola for a terrific recipe!

Black Bottom Cherry Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
These baked beautifully and were easy to cut without making a mess. The brownie base was as close to perfect as I could expect, being just slightly on the fudge side. The cheesecake topping was, well, just like cherry cheesecake! Hands got into them before I could make the icing. Need I say more? Be certain not to let them over bake as they will set up perfectly if you follow the instructions. Keep an eye on them so the top doesn't start to brown. Make sure they stay in the fridge for several hours or overnight, as the flavors and texture will get even better!

Grilled Chicken Flatbread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2013
This was OMG delicious! Before I could sit down Hubs was already into his with both hands saying "Oh boy, this is the best!" I must say once I sat down I said the same thing. Super easy, if you don't mind grilling your chicken breasts first. Some chopping involved, but the end result is well worth it! I used marinated artichoke hearts, which is what I had in the pantry. In place of the red peppers, I chopped some fresh garden tomatoes from a friend. Deliciouso!

One Minute Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
The end result of this icing was absolutely perfect. I made it to top off the Tiramisu Cheesecake (also on this AR site) that had chilled in the fridge for a few hours. It spread perfectly to the edges, and set up nicely. You can obviously adjust the amount of milk to suit the consistency you're looking for. Next time, I might try a liqueur in place of the vanilla.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Since I tend to have the ingredients always on hand, I like to make these with leftover chicken. It's a great enchilada casserole that family and friends love. However, if you're wanting "authentic", look elsewhere.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
These were classic biscuits. They rose high and the texture was perfect. The flavor was excellent, I think due to the addition of sugar. I will admit that I ventured from the suggested method of leaving the dough together scored in the pan. The dough had such a beautiful elasticity that I couldn't help resist using a biscuit cutter to separate. This is my new go-to recipe when making homemade biscuits.

Pan-Seared Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2014
This is an easy way to prepare Tilapia. I generously seasoned the filets in a lemon pepper seasoning before giving them a light dredge in the flour. Instead of brushing the butter on afterward, I just melted it in the pan with the olive oil for frying. They were delicious. The flavors were locked in due to the pan searing and there was no grease residue. This method works great on many other types of fish as well. Served with rice pilaf and asparagus, this makes for a lovely meal.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
This is an impressive dessert that couldn't be any easier! There are so many ways you can change this up to suit the season. To add a little more depth to the flavor, I used almond extract in place of the vanilla, omitted the cinnamon, and drizzled some melted dark chocolate over the chilled bars. Needless to say, they vanished quickly off the plate. I will definitely be making this again.

Classic Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
Truly a classic roll in every way. They are easy to make and have a perfect texture. I used my KA to work the dough. These would be great for sliders/mini sandwiches as someone else may have suggested. If you need a yeast roll that doesn't require alot of time and fuss, this is the one to go to. Will definitely make them again.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
These turned out perfect with no changes made to the recipe. They puffed up nicely and were very flavorful. I will definitely make these again. However, I personally found them to be a bit time consuming for a morning dish. Next time instead of lining the muffin cups with the hash browns, I'll just stir them in to the egg mixture. I don't think the change would be noticeable. Also, instead of fiddling with cutting up the links after they're cooked, I might use patties crumbled in the pan before cooking, or the ground Johnsonville Italian Sausage. Hmmm. That's sounding good already. Hubs savored every bite, so in my book this is a winner!

Janine's Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
Being a banana bread purist, I really loved this recipe. The texture on the inside was moist and dense. The outer crust baked to a beautiful golden brown with a slight rise in the center. I'm not sure why anyone would "slice" the bananas unless you want those chunks in it which would alter the outcome. I mashed mine. I also added an additional egg and one teaspoon of vanilla to the recipe. Next time I make this I'm going to add a 1/2 cup of chopped pecans and a 1/2 cup of Craisins. This is a keeper!

Mexican Style Shredded Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
The chipotle sauce makes this dish a success. Hubs poked one fork into the pot before serving and said "This is the best pork you've ever made!" He couldn't resist grazing from the pot each time my back was turned. So incredibly simple with savory results. I served it on a bed of spanish yellow rice to which I added the cilantro. Topped it all off with shredded cheese, a dollop of guacamole, and a warm flour tortilla on the side. Muy bueno!

Chicken Lasagna Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
This is a nice departure from traditional lasagna. Add some herbs and seasonings to suit your taste, as it is a little bland as written. Made a loaf of Jo's Rosemary Bread to go along with it, also on this site. Add a green salad and you have a very nice meal.

Berry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
At first I thought these might crumble and fall apart. They baked beautifully. The recipe is just fine as written. I always keep a big bag of frozen berries from the large warehouse store in my freezer. The raspberries, blueberries, and boysenberries made for a perfect filling. To error on the sweet side, I sprinkled a bit more granulated sugar over the berries once they were spread evenly over the crust. The bake time was perfect for a light golden topping. Delicious!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
I used a lot more of the ingredients in this recipe. I cooked two chicken breasts, used 1 cup of black beans, 1 cup spinach, tripled seasonings, and baked as others suggested. Some of the amounts in the recipe are just too skimpy. Everyone enjoyed them. It's a good recipe that can be adjusted to your taste.
