Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2014
Since I'm not a fan of plain tomato sauce unless it's homemade, I used pasta sauce and it was DELICIOUS! And just as easy as everyone says.It's a keeper. Love your recipes and your videos Chef John.

Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Keeper! I've been making "Lipton Onion Soup Mix Rice" for decades - not any more. This is really good and far healthier! Thanks so much for the post.

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
Very nice. Used mayo instead of the egg white and cooked it on parchment paper. The cod was flaky and moist.

Beer Batter Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
This was delicious! I read reviews and should have listened! Unless you don't mind mushy fish then the fish needs to be COMPLETELY defrosted. The batter became very dark brown, but held up well even with the extended cooking time. I added about a tablespoon of salt-free garlic based seasoning (Costco) to the batter. I used Swai (didn't tell DH) cut into large pieces instead of cod and it was very good. Used the same batter for deep-fried mushrooms that needed eating too!

Pesto Chicken Penne Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
This would be probably excellent just as submitted, but I didn't have Alfredo sauce, we're not fans of tomatoes, and I didn't have the cheese blend. Bread crumbs and Parmesan topping did the trick. I had to substitute with some heavy cream, cream of chicken soup and additional water, but let me say, it WORKED. Either way, I'll be making this on a regular basis.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
This was very easy and tastes as though it's much more complicated! I didn't have half-and-half on hand, only low-fat milk and it still came out delicious. Just a side note, I used red potatoes because they hold up better than russets.

Pan Fried Catfish Filets

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
A lightly seasoned coating with nice texture. The only change I made was that I replaced the catfish with Swai. Cooking the garlic in the oil was a nice touch and gave the fish another layer without being overpowering. HOWEVER, even though my fish fillets were rather thin, they were under cooked at the 7 minute max cooking. Not the fault of the recipe, but the cook. Chunk up the fish after cooking and this would be great in fish tacos!

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
Definitely going to making this one again. I cut the recipe in half, planning to freeze the leftovers. The hubby brought home a guinea pig, I mean guest for dinner and there was hardly enough left over for my lunch the next day. Oh, and because I had a time crunch, I did the whole thing in the slow cooker. A great, hardy meal ready when we were.

Hot Chicken Sandwiches Slow Cooker Style

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
"Pretty Good" from my DH means I can make it again. Glad you added the dressing, it makes it! Mine required twice as much water. I'll tweak it a bit, it just needs "a little something". I added 1/2 small onion, chopped. I don't keep stuffing in my pantry so I keep my bread heels in the freezer to make my own stuffing: 5 slices bread heels cut into 1/2 inch squares, 1 tsp Herbs de Provence, 1/2 tsp garlic salt or "Garli Garni" seasoning.. Warm the toaster oven to 350'. In an aluminum pie pan, toss bread with seasonings. Bake 5 minutes. Toss, bake 5 minutes. Repeat a total of 4-5 times, until all pieces are lightly browned.

Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Love at first bite! My hubby's first question was "so who do you think you are, "R.L."? These taste just like those!" The ol' guys taste buds are getting sensitive to saltiness so I've cut back. I use unsalted butter and unless it calls for fresh, I use a garlic seasoning call Garli Garni on most everything calling for garlic salt/powder and it was fabulous in this too. This is a keeper. Thanks so much Chaney!

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This is perfect. I can't believe I MADE SAUSAGE! Hope it freezes well. Went to Costco, bought bone-less pork sirloin roasts, and experimented with one. Used 2 lbs pork, 1 lb turkey and decreased the brown sugar to 1/2 tablespoon. DH never says "it's fine like it is" but he did this time. (I made 2tiny patties, and fried them up to see if I need to make any changes. Not one thing! Used the Food Saver and now have 4 pks of sausage ready when I am.

The Best Zucchini Dip Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I can't believe what a great combination these flavors are! I did need to drain off the excess liquid after I processed the main ingredients before adding the mayo. It was my Monday Night Football success story for 2010. Oh, and I did triple everything EXCEPT the mayo (because I have 20-25 people at MNG) I used 2 1/2 to 3 cups of Mayo total. I'll be taking this on our houseboat and NASCAR trips. Thank you SO much BettyBillings, where ever you are........
