Avocado Sauce Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
I know that I will be making this again because my hubby has mentioned it several times this afternoon. I think that I would have liked it more had I taken the half with the thinner slice of tomato. I followed the recipe exactly except for not pureeing the sauce (I just used a fork). That was a new way to poach eggs for me, though I had heard of the method before. I'll try it again to see if it is any easier, but I may go back to my old way of cooking the eggs. Be sure to season the guacamole with salt and pepper because it really does make a difference. I was happy to use Avocados from Mexico because that is what I usually buy from my store! Thanks for the recipe!

Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2014
Now don't get upset with me! I changed the meat from turkey to Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage! I needed to find a good way to use it up, and this fit the bill exactly because I had the pesto, I had the feta, and the bread crumbs. When I put those ingredients into the Search, this is what popped up! This was a very yummy lunch that my husband and I shared. I do think that the next time I make it I will mix the sausage with the turkey half and half so that it's not quite so rich, but that's neither here nor there. This was delicious!

Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
I followed this recipe exactly, marinating the chicken for about five hours. It was easy to grill, and we had leftovers for salad the next evening. This is a dish to be repeated! Thank you so much, Mazola!

Chicken a la Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
I used the Mediterranean version, making two slight changes in the ingredients. I used jarred roasted red peppers because I had some opened in my fridge, and I used farm fresh tomatoes and added a little garlic and Italian seasoning to them. Otherwise I followed the directions and ingredients--sherry vinegar was my choice. The chicken I used was Costco's organic, and those two chicken pieces were perfect for the two of us. I would definitely make these again! Thanks, Mazola!

Braised Corned Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
After all my years of cooking I finally made a corned beef brisket! Why did I wait? I didn't think I had any takers! And probably had I followed any other recipe that would have been the case. I followed the triple-wrapped method, and it served us well. So well that I picked up another brisket for my freezer so that in the summer we can enjoy some more of the yummy sandwiches that we had! Thanks so much, mauigirl!

Perfect Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2014
I made my curd using the exact ingredients of this recipe, but I changed the way I put them together based on recommendations I received from someone on the Buzz. And it worked PERFECTLY! I creamed the butter and sugar just like I was going to make cookies or cake. Then I added the eggs one at a time, beating until very fluffy each time. Then I added the lemon juice and zest. When it was fully mixed, I poured it into a pan and heated it on stovetop, stirring constantly. It gave me perfect curd with no egg curdles! Like magic! Oh, yum! Now it's used as a filling in a birthday cake with some leftovers for my toast! Yummy! Yummy!

Chicken Salad With Pine Nuts and Raisins

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
I gave this four stars and hubby gave it five, but I'm the one making the review! I thought the mayo/sour cream mix was really good--the rosemary was just wonderful in this we thought. And the raisins were great! Otherwise there were a lot of ingredients in the list, and we love them all. I didn't think they were all necessary. The chicken I used was leftover Lemon Basil Chicken from this site. My celery wasn't good, so I left it out. We thought this gave us a great dinner tonight. I would definitely make this again. Thanks, MARBALET!

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
This rating will reflect the salmon only. It was wonderful. Just make it as written, unless you are a little iffy about the heat from the cayenne---then start with just half that amount and see what you think. The salsa would be really good if it had some kind of liquid in it---olive oil, lemon or lime juice---anything. It just needed something. I had to use something other than grapefruit because of my husband's meds, so I chose to use an orange that came from a friend's tree. That worked well. You could easily get by with 1/4 of the salsa for this amount of fish. I have leftover salsa, so I'll add something to that and make this same dish again this week. It's that good. Thanks, Mazola!

The Best Lemon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
I made half a batch of this (I was almost out of red wine vinegar), but otherwise I followed the recipe as written. I really liked this, but of course I would because it had lemon in it! If this is too lemony or acidic for you, you could easily add a teaspoon of honey or sugar to it. I think this would be a good spread on a sandwich as well as on a salad. So for me, this was thumbs up! Thanks, lukeder101!

Devilishly Different Green Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
I'm wondering where I went wrong! This didn't work for us. I followed the recipe---even setting aside the yolks (which could have helped in retrospect). The flavors didn't come together for me, and so I'm glad that I made only a partial batch. I hope someone else will make this to prove me wrong!

Vermicelli Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Certainly this is better when it has time to sit and let flavors meld! I wanted something to extend our dinner last night and so made this because I had all the ingredients on hand except the green pepper, so I used red bell pepper. I was thinking that it needed salt and pepper. I'm glad I didn't add any because today it has wonderful flavor! I would definitely make this again! Thank you, Stephanie Carroll!

Scot-Tini

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
This was an interesting combination. I made only half the recipe and still have some left for tonight (I removed the ice). This was OK, but probably not my favorite. I'd rather either have all vodka or all scotch. But it was worth the try! Thanks, Dr. Falk!

Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
These are really good! I added a teaspoon of vanilla (couldn't help myself!), the chocolate chips I used were just regular sized, and the oil I used was lemon olive oil. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. These baked for exactly 25 minutes, and I got 16 muffins. I'd imagine that rather than the mayonnaise that you could use yogurt or sour cream, and next time I'll try white whole wheat flour. These are ingredients I always have on hand, so whenever I have ripe bananas, I now have several healthy muffins to choose from. Thank you so much, Happy Mama.

Sriracha Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
Delicious! I don't have a mixer other than my handmixer, and I don't have a bread machine, so this was just up to me! I used the handmixer up until I was ready to add the last cup of flour, and it worked out just fine. I had to use buttermilk (all I had on hand) but otherwise followed the recipe. Maybe because of the buttermilk, I only had to add about a tablespoon more of that last half cup of flour. It didn't take very long to knead this by hand, and it was very easy to handle. I baked it for half an hour, and the internal temperature according to my Thermapen was 196 degrees. So far all I've done is toasted a piece with butter, but it will make such delicious sandwiches! Thanks so very much, BigShotsMom!

Blue Cheese Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
I was happy to find this recipe because I was able to use some leftovers from other dishes to complete this meal. I had some Bacon-Bleu Cheese Balls from this site left over from the other day, and I felt that was close enough to make this recipe using that. Without the bacon in the cheese ball I'm not sure there would have been enough flavor in this dish as written. Even then it needed some salt and pepper added to it, and I even sprinkled a little of Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute (an herb mixture) on the chicken. As I cooked it according to the recipe, this turned out very nicely with those additions. I also had some leftover rice/vermicelli mixture from the other day (SHORECOOK's A Homemade San Francisco Treat from this site) to use. So we were totally happy with this dinner tonight. Thank you, Elizabeth Saben!

Bacon-Bleu Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
This is a yummy recipe. I halved it and then made two balls, putting onions in one and not the other. The change I made was to use real bacon, almost six strips of Safeway's thick sliced. I covered them differently so that the non-onion eater among us could distinguish hers. We thought these were very yummy, though the one with the onions definitely had more flavor. I would definitely make this recipe again! Thanks, marion!

A Homemade San Francisco Treat: Chicken Vermicelli Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
Hey, SHORECOOK, you'll never believe what I did to your wonderful recipe! I made it as directed using a basmati brown rice mixture. Then I added a touch of salt and pepper, a can of tuna (yes, I said tuna fish--from Costco), and just a very small amount of mayo. It was wonderful! So I made your side dish into a main dish that way, and I've already been told to make it again that very same way. Who knew?! I loved the smell of the rice cooking because it took me way back in all those years when we first started using Rice A Roni! Thanks so much!

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
We thought this resulted in a wonderful dinner. I made it just as directed, though it didn't say how to prepare the tortillas (I just heated them in a touch of oil). I did add a little sour cream. I started out with two pounds of pork shoulder butt, and by the time I cut off some of the fat and let it cook down, it was perfect for four servings. Thanks, Mazola, for a different way of preparing carnitas.

Cinnamon Vanilla Granola

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
I love all the ingredients of this recipe, and my house smelled wonderful while it was baking. I was hoping for just a little more of a clumpy result in the final product. My granddaughters liked this, and that's good enough for me! Thanks, Mazola!

Sweet Sriracha Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2014
This was very good--served over rice. I'd recommend that first-time users of Sriracha sauce start with the two teaspoons and go from there. You can always add more, but it's hard to tone it down! The only changes I made was to use half orange juice and half water as per Molly's suggestion and to thicken the sauce a little with cornstarch. I would think that apricot jam would also be good in place of the marmalade. This makes good leftovers. I will make this again! Thanks, princesspottymouth!
