3 Ingredient Pulled Pork Barbeque

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
Made this using a 6.5 lb. package of Pork Shoulder Boneless Country Ribs. Followed the recipe, but used more BBQ Sauce in the initial mix due to my larger amount of ribs. Added a heaping teaspoon of Harissa (Chili Paste) and let it cook in the slow cooker all day. I did not add the full amount of BBQ Sauce at the end of shredding. We don't like our pork swimming in sauce. I did not add it back into the slow cooker for the second time. It was time for dinner and once shredding was done - I served this. Easy. Good. Worked great! Thanks for the recipe!

Beef and Guinness® Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
This was very good. I did not have any Tomato Paste. I added 1/3 cup of Ketchup (cringe) and did not add the sugar. Came out great. I used a 11.? ounce bottle of Guinness that was in the back of the fridge! Chef John comes through again. Served with mashed potatoes and green beans. The men in my house were happy!

Zucchini Spice Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
Giving this five stars because it is very pretty, smells amazing and tastes a solid 4.5! Followed directions exactly (which I never do) and I would decrease the oil to 1/4 cup next time. I let the grated zucchini sit in a strainer pressing on it from time to time. It probably sat draining for an hour. I squeezed the liquid out of it too! LOTS of liquid came out of the zucchini. Do not ignore this step! I baked it in my convection oven at 350 for 45 minutes and it is perfect. Trying to use up summer zucchini and sneak green veggies into my 16 year old. Thanks for the recipe! Will definitely make it again.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
Followed the recipe exactly....which I rarely do. I used my melon ball scoop and made them all the same size. After I scooped them onto parchment paper, I rolled them into a ball and then dipped them in various sprinkles and sugars that I had "bits" of in my cabinet! Great way to clean out the sprinkles and my kids love them! I baked them on Parchment paper for 10 minutes using my Convection Oven. They came out perfect. Thank you for the recipe!

Thick Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
House smells amazing! Tweaker Alert! I used AP Flour because I didn't have bread flour. I used a whole 10 oz. bag of Andes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips that needed using. I used my melon ball size scoop & Parchment Paper & Baked at 350 degrees for ten minutes, using my convection oven! 15 year old says they taste; "Like squishy Thin Mint GS Cookies!" Thanks for the recipe!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2014
I followed the recipe exactly, except I doubled it and used 2 cups of chocolate chips instead of raisins. My 15 year old keeps grabbing cookies and shoving the whole thing in his mouth and running out of the kitchen....like I don't know what he is doing. Very Happy Boy! Thanks for this recipe! House smells amazing!

Grilled Lemon Yogurt Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
I made this pretty much "as written" - which I never do. My tweaks were: A 7 oz. container of lower fat Greek Yogurt - 3 lbs. of boneless, skinless chicken thighs and I added a Tablespoon of Granulated Onion. I marinated it all day in a giant Tupperware that I would flip every other hour. I did not remove the marinade at grill time and just sprayed our BBQ with some Pam for Grilling. DELISH! I did not make the dipping sauce - didn't need it. Served this with a cucumber and heirloom tomato salad and green beans. Healthy and delicious. There is a reason I follow Chef John on AR. Will definitely make this again! Something different to do with chicken! Yea!

Sticky Monkey Brains

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
Up'd everything because I am feeding teenage man/boys. I don't make mini Bundt pan sized anything. Tweaker Alert: I used four 7 oz. plain biscuit rolls and 1/2 cup of cinnamon sugar for dipping them. Up'd the butter and brown sugar (both) to 3/4 cup. Cooked it for 32 minutes at 350 in a full sized Bundt pan that is coated. 1st Teenager to arrive in the kitchen said the smell woke him up. When he saw it plated he said: "OMG YES!" Smells amazing - took a picture.

McCormick® Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
15 year old son cut into this before I could take a photo. Took two pictures after the cut. I used two canisters of Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits that were 16.3 oz. each, because that was what I had. Baked in a 10 inch tube pan instead of a Bundt. All other directions were followed exactly. Teenager says it is amazing, I would guess it would have a higher glaze factor if I had used the suggested size/amount of biscuits. Adding to my Recipe Box! Is nice enough to serve on a Brunch Buffet for adults.

Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
I was playing with the quantities because I had already bought four-12 oz. bags of French Cut Frozen Green Beans. I added two cans of Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup and approximately two cups of milk. I only had 1/2 a cup of Parm. Cheese total. I did not add the 1/2 cup of Crispy Onions at the beginning of cooking - instead liberally sprinkled Onion Powder and some Granulated Garlic and mixed well! This came out GREAT - but too soupy - or too much liquid, which was my fault. At the end of the 5 hour cook time, I used a slotted spoon to take the green beans out of my "soup" and put the green beans in a 13X9 Pyrex and then added Crispy Onions on top and put the whole thing under the broiler for 1 minute. Next time, I will ease up on my milk and it will be perfect! They tasted amazing and NO ONE noticed that it was Cream of Chicken soup and not Cream of Mushroom. Thanks for the recipe. It really helped with Christmas Eve dinner in that I only have one oven! Adding to my Recipe Box!

Justin's Hoosier Daddy Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
This was good, but I tweaked it. I only added 1 cup of chicken broth/soup and I cooked the large, chopped onion in the chicken broth/soup before adding that to the Crock Pot. Two cans of chicken soup would have made this soup - not chili. I added 2 T. Chopped Jarred Garlic and extra Cumin. I did not add the salt and it doesn't need it! It was good. Hubby wanted more heat, I thought it was fine as written. This would be a good chili recipe to take on a cabin trip where traveling with canned goods makes things easier. It was a good dinner. Thanks for the recipe!

Good Frickin' Paprika Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2013
Delish - but I "tweaked" it a little. I had Greek Plain Yogurt in the fridge - used that and way more Garlic that this called for (3 heaping T. of crushed Jar Garlic)- which is our thing. I added two good pinches of Salt to the marinade per other reviews. My Sister had brought me a large bag of Paprika from her trip to Hungary. I can't read the label....so we didn't know that it was HOT Paprika. I did not make the glaze - it didn't need it. I didn't do such a great job at wiping off the marinade either. Just threw the chicken on the hot grill. I kept moving the Chicken around the grill so it didn't blacken. I used boneless, skinless breasts and thighs. Something different to do with Chicken! YEA! Served with Green Beans and Brown Rice. Thank you Chef John. You are one of my favorite Cooks on AR!

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
Made this today and cooked it all day on High in the Crock Pot. Meat came out "spoon tender!" I actually used a Sam's Club huge thing of stew meat (4+ lbs.)and made two Crock Pots worth "sort of" doubling the recipe. Gave the 2nd Crock Pot to a friend to take home to feed her family! Very Good Stew. Used some open Merlot for the wine in the mushrooms - worked great! Very versatile recipe and I am adding it to my Recipe Box! I didn't do the cornstarch step at the end. The potatoes had thickened it enough that I didn't feel like it was needed! Thanks for this!

Rubbed and Grilled Pork Loin

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
In my quest to make dinners under $15.00, I found a 4+ lb. Pork Loin on special for $8.25. I mixed up this rub exactly as written, but subbed Brown Sugar for the White. I covered the Pork Loin with the rub at 7:30 am and put it in the refridge for the day. I couldn't face the BBQ in our current heat wave and got out my Rotisserie (Set it and Forget it Ronco Oven)and cooked it in that for 52 minutes. I let it rest for about 20 minutes after cooking. Sliced thin and served it with corn on the cob and green beans and a salad. Perfection. Thanks for the great recipe! Will definitely use this again!

Lisa's Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
I would make this again, but use less salt. It was good. I would check the chicken at 50-55 minutes. I would use granulated garlic and not garlic salt. I put four large boneless, skinless, room temperature chicken breasts in a 13X9 on a bed of fresh spinach. The spinach was the only tweak I did. I followed the recipe exactly. The chicken came out borderline dry after an hour. Knowing that chicken continues to cook after you take it out of the oven, I think 50 minutes in the oven and 10 minutes "rest" would make this fantastic. I also had to double the olive oil measurement to make it spreadable for the amount of dry seasoning. This was good, but as written it is 4 stars. Thanks for a new recipe in my rotation!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
Followed the recipe almost exactly...which I never do. We have nut allergies so I doubled the Vanilla and left out the Almond Extract! I couldn't resist adding a bunch of the beautiful fresh blueberries that I had just bought. Poured 1/2 the batter into my tube pan and sprinkled blueberries on the batter (3/4 cup?). Covered the blueberries with the remaining batter and baked for 60 minutes - not done. It needed the full 80 minutes. 18 year old started cutting it before I could photograph it (really pretty) and took one bite, closed his eyes and said; "BOMB!" THAT FOLKS - IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS! Smells amazing and pretty too. 5 Stars!

Garlic Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
Used 2 T. Butter & 3 large cloves of garlic chopped. Followed the directions except I used the Salt Grinder and ground sea salt into the garlic butter cooking on low. Used a WHOLE HUGE Package of Costco Spinach and just added large handfuls and kept turning it. Forgot about the lemon because I was BBQ'ing the rest of dinner. Will definitely be making this again. Doesn't need the lemon. This was delish! DH really liked it too and he is a "Creamed Spinach or forget it" guy. Great find!

Campbell's Kitchen Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
Good, quick dinner. Tastes NOTHING like chinese food, but it worked. I cheated and tweaked just a bit. I had a huge bag of frozen Stir Fry Veggies from Costco. Used 1/2 the bag. Used 1/3 of a stick of butter and began cooking the veggies. Pretty much followed the recipe after that. Used other reviewers suggestions of adding a T. of Chili Flakes and a T. of jarred, crushed garlic. This was a good quick dinner. Would make it again. It is not even American-ized Chinese Food.

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
This was Good. Not great. Certainly works for a quickie breakfast. My son is a Welder who lives on the road in hotels. Must tell him about this. Per other reviewers - I used a splash of milk two 2 whole eggs - whisked them good with a fork. I then added bacon and cilantro. Quick mix again. Cooked in a 2 Cup Glass Measuring Cup sprayed with butter spray, for 1 minute. Stirred with a knife, added the cheese and hot sauce and nuked for 45 more seconds. Good. Not fantastic, but would do it again if I needed a quickie breakfast.

Extra Easy Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
These are just like the other reviewers described. Muffin Tops. Added Chocolate Chips and baked for 12 minutes in my gas oven. 14 year old gives them five stars. 17 year old said 4 stars. They smell good. Would be better as muffins.
