Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2015
5 Stars from my Men and they have gotten very critical due to how much I bake! I followed the recipe exactly, but did not add any chocolate chips or fruit or nuts. Lightly sprinkled cinnamon sugar on the raw dough before baking. Used Butter Pam to coat the pan, no flour. Per another Reviewer, Cooked it for 20 min. at 350 and 8 additional minutes at 325. The house smelled amazing. Half the tray is already gone! Thanks for a great recipe!

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2015
Made exactly as written and there wasn't a lot of flavor, but the texture was really good. I would make it again using only fresh herbs and cheese and more salt.

Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2015
Delicious, but I tweaked it based on what I had in the house! Very forgiving recipe. You could alter it to be much hotter or very mild for little kids. I love that! I only used 8 oz. of Cream Cheese (all I had) and then added 1/2 cup of Non Fat Greek Yogurt. I forgot the Cilantro and green onions. Didn't miss either. I used most of a Costco Chicken that I had pulled the white meat off the bird and shredded. I used Costco Shredded Jack and Cheddar Cheese, (all I had)! I made the filling mixture earlier in the day and refrigerated it until I was ready to assemble. It let the flavors come together. You could absolutely make the whole thing in advance, drop to room temperature, and then bake for dinner! I'm really happy with the way it came out. DH ate two huge plates. I served it with Mexican Rice and a Fresh Corn, Red Onion and Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese and Garlic. Tons for left overs. This was really good. Thank you for a recipe that was totally different from what I usually make!

Amazing Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2015
This makes the house smell amazing. It needed to bake an additional 12-15 minutes to get the middle to set up completely. I have a commercial grade convection oven. I cannot mark down the recipe for that. Every oven is different. I used semi sweet chocolate chunks from Trader Joe's which might be why it required a longer cooking time. The chocolate chunks made this very chocolaty, which was great. I gave it a shake of cinnamon into the batter, other than that, followed the recipe exactly. My men loved this! Thanks for the recipe!

Roasted Cauliflower 'Steaks'

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2015
This was delicious, but.....I bought a good sized Cauliflower that was bigger than a head of Iceberg Lettuce. I have very sharp knives. I was only able to get two good 1 inch steaks out of the head of Cauliflower. I mention this only because if you are planning on steaks for presentation, you will need more cauliflower than one head. The two ends were roasted and are equally delicious, but I only have two "steaks" out of one head. This is so good, you might want to make at least two heads of cauliflower anyway......I keep eating the florets right out of the pan! I seasoned this with Garlic Garni (a mixed garlic and pepper seasoning) Again, DELICIOUS! Thanks for a great recipe!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
This was really good. 4+ Stars. When you are first mixing the cream cheese with the melted butter, it starts to look congealed, which scared me, but I kept whisking it and it came together. Added a whole rotisserie Chicken cut into bite size pieces and some cooked broccoli to the sauce. My men were happy. Thanks for the new recipe!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
Followed the directions, except used my own garlic seasoning on the chicken, after the egg wash. Used approx. 1/3 cup of butter and sprayed the 13X9 with Cooking spray. It was delish and something different from my usual chicken dishes. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Thanks for the recipe! Will definitely make this again. Cooked in in my convection oven at 375 for 25 minutes and then turned it up to 400 for an additional 7 minutes. Perfect texture!

Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
Easy and delicious. Other than cleaning and slicing the mushrooms, this is a quick side dish. Next time I will be buying a large pack (or two) of sliced mushrooms from Sam's Club. Thanks for the recipe! We really enjoyed this!

Fiery Pork Skewers

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2014
This was delicious. It is not "Fiery" at all. I put the marinade in a gallon sized zip baggie and "squished" it to mix well and then added the pork. I used a huge pork tenderloin (Costco) that I cut up into medallions about 1/2 inch thick. Tripled the marinade. Marinaded in the refridge for almost 3 hours. Could easily marinade all day. BBQ'd the medallions instead of making skewers. The BBQ MUST be on low or the sugar will cause the pork to burn. Hubby loved this. Said; "I will eat this for dinner tomorrow night too!" That folks, is five stars! Made it with Chinese Veggies and Penrose plain white rice! Thanks for the recipe!

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!
