Mushroom Honey Lager Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I made this recipe according to the directions, and even though we love each and every ingredient, they just didn't seem to go together very well. Maybe just leaving out the honey would have made it better. The beer flavor doesn't really add much for us. It smelled yummy while cooking this, so I had high expectations for the results. Maybe someone can come up with a better way to remedy my review!

Mushroom Cream Sauce With Shallots

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
We thought this tasted outstanding! I should give this fewer stars because of the fact that I think the flour:cream ratio is off. When I put the flour into the cream, it immediately made a very thick paste. I think maybe there is a typo in the amount of flour, and I would start with half a teaspoon and work up. I didn't want my rating to deter anyone from trying this! I put this with Easy Crispy Baked Chicken from this site, and we had a marvelous dinner! Thank you!

Easy Crispy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I made this according to the recipe with the exception of using butter rather than margarine and using just a little more of the garlic powder, and we thought this was very tasty! It was easy, and the coating didn't fall off! The timing was right on! I used one package of Costco chicken breasts and cut the recipe in half, and it was perfect. We enjoyed our dinner very much! Thanks for this recipe!

Boiled Water

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
I was totally confused as to how large the bubbles should be before removing the pot from the heat. The submitter of this recipe then states it can be added to ramen? How is that done? Couldn't Seth have included a link to that recipe? Now I have no idea what to do with my water! Guess I'll just have to chalk this one up!

Italian Sausage Market Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
I'm not sure this will take over our favorite recipe for meatloaf, but it certainly is a good one. I did not use a typical chili sauce but rather a Trader Joe's roasted tomatillo yellow chili salsa. I am not sure I used all the spinach called for, either. It took quite a bit longer for it to get done--probably because the meat was cold from the fridge--and I did drain fat from the loaf as it cooked from time to time. Thanks for a nice change of pace!

Aunt Ro's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
I must admit that I did tweak this recipe a bit! But it was all yummy! I traded out the ground beef for Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage, and I traded out the butter beans for white beans. Because the baked beans I used already had brown sugar in them, I just sprinkled a little over the top when I was heating up the batch. I probably went a little short on the catsup and bbq sauce. But still, really, this is in the realm of this recipe! I would really suggest that Italian sausage is a GREAT way to tweak this recipe! In fact, this recipe just calls for tweaking however you like your beans! We won't ever buy Honeybaked's baked beans again because they are too sweet for us. This was really really good! Thanks, Aunt Ro!

Quinoa Pilaf With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
Very tasty! I'm so glad hubby liked this! Miracle! If you are sensitive to salt, I'd start out with a little less salt because you can always add more. I thought it bordered on being just a little salty---which could be because even though I did use a good organic version of vegetable stock, it may have contained more salt than I figured on (I really need to make my own---note to self). I may have added a touch more mushrooms and shallot than it called for, but that's normal for me. Very good! Thanks!

Grilled Salmon with Lemon Hazelnut Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
This was good salmon! I do wish I had added more salt and pepper, and it probably could have used more than the whole day of marinating I gave it. I found myself wanting a little of the sauce over the finished salmon, but the hazelnuts did make this very tasty. Thanks for the recipe! EDIT: In thinking more about this dish, I wish I would have saved off a little of the marinade in the beginning, thickened it a little, and poured it over the finished fish. I'll have to try that!

Ham Salad for Two

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
This was excellent! I used leftover Honeybaked Ham for this. I also used fresh pineapple since I had that on hand. The creamy dressing I used was Honey Mustard II dressing from this site, and because of that I combined the honey mustard requirement with the creamy dressing requirement to make this. I was thinking that this will be good tomorrow on a sandwich for lunch along with a couple of slices of ham. I would definitely make this recipe again! We loved it!

Ham Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
Hubby really liked this a lot---which totally surprised me because I didn't think he'd like a sweet sauce like that. I wasn't quite so enamored of it because of the sweetness. I was thinking that maybe with less sugar and making it brown sugar would help it out. I did have to strain it for lumps from the egg, even though I followed the recipe to the T. I'll try the brown sugar next time. In the meantime, hubby thanks you a lot for this recipe! :)

Ham Steak Over Mixed Greens

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
This was a good way to use a small amount of ham. I loved all the idea of it, but the dressing didn't quite work for me. I thought the acid was too much and needs a little tiny bit of sweetness to match the sweetness of the ham---maybe a dab of honey or brown sugar. Otherwise, this is a nice salad. I'll try it again because I love ham in salads!

Baked Split Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
We have a meal like this basically once every ten days using Trader Joe's kosher chicken. The difference with this one was the garlic and the herbs since I usually just use salt and pepper along with my lemon olive oil. This was very nice, and I'll change to this more savory style now. Very good! We loved it! Thanks!

Hot Artichoke and Crab Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
I forgot to put the bell pepper and onions on the top of this dish, but I don't think it would have made that much difference in the overall taste of this recipe. It was pretty good, but maybe I'd try to add a few things to enhance the flavors. I mixed cracker crumbs with the last of my bread crumbs, and that was a good topping! Thanks for this recipe!

Baked Crab and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
I loved all the flavors that go in to this dish. I used some crabmeat that I got from Costco, and we all thought it was quite fishy tasting, so that kind of ruined what I know would be a perfect dish! That didn't really stop us from eating it, however. I love using the artichoke bottoms rather than the quarters that most recipes call for. Thanks again, Chef!

Irish Brown Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
I loved the rugged texture of this bread. It makes really good toast with butter and honey. Next time I will make it in a loaf pan for ease of cutting. Thanks for this recipe!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
This review would probably best reflect naples34102's review! Mashed bananas and that little bit of lemon juice were the tweaks I used. I love that the edges of the bread are just a little crystallized with the sugar in them! My granddaughters will decimate this bread easily! Yum!

Creamy Salmon and Leek Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
We thought this was really good! I used capellini because that's what I had on hand. I had to add fresh tarragon to the Dijon because I didn't have that style of mustard. Otherwise, this was a perfect dish. Next time I'll make sure to use a sturdier pasta (spaghetti) and make Chef John's Creme Fraiche (delicious recipe). This will be repeated for sure! Thank you for this recipe!

Steph's Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
This recipe is what it is---comfort food. I made it as written except for needing to use two kinds of pasta (elbow macaroni and whole wheat rotini). I went short on the pasta, and I did think one more can of tuna could have been used (I used Costco's 6 oz can, but most of the regular brands now are only 5 oz---so definitely two cans needed there). This was just a good easy meal! Thanks for the recipe!

Louisville Rice Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
I really liked this rice salad! I used my lemon olive oil for the oil, but then later I was thinking that my blood orange olive oil would have made it even better---so next time. I chose to use red onion, slivered almonds, red bell pepper, and celery for dinner tonight. When I eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow, I'll add some golden raisins. This has all kinds of possibilities, and that's my favorite thing about this recipe! Thanks!

San Francisco Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
I should have heeded Baking Nana's warning more about being careful not to overcook these! My chops were an inch thick, so I thought I'd be safe cooking them for only 22 minutes. Wrong! Mine were way overdone---gray all the way through. So sad! I will make these again but not cover the chops with a lid at all, and I'll be sure to use that technique where you test for doneness by touching the meat in the middle---if it feels like that fatty tissue by your thumb when your hands are lightly clenched, then it's done! The sauce was very tasty, so I'll be sure to try this again. I must admit that my hubby liked his pork very well done (I haven't done a very good job of training him in the new ways of pork--where it's good to still have it pink in the middle)! Thanks for this recipe!
