Reviewed Chicken Salad Veronique
"Made this from leftovers of Ina's Perfect Roast Chicken recipe! We had the legs for dinner, then I used the breasts to make the salad. Didn't have grapes on hand so I substituted dried sweetened cranberries. It was almost too easy, and sooo delicious!
Double thank you's Ina!"
Reviewed Perfect Roast Chicken
"Finger-licking perfection! I had a 3.8 lb. "Mary's" free range, air cooled chicken (Whole Foods, $11.50), worth every penny! Because of the low weight, I roasted at 425 for 15 minutes, then turned it down to 375 for 1 hour. When the skin turned dark brown, I tented with a small piece of foil. It tested at 165 degrees. Let it rest for 30 minute"

"Made this using the round, and contrary to one reviewer's experience, it was not dry at all. However, I used an ale, which turned so bitter that I halfway through, I removed the meat to another pan, added unsalted chicken broth & about 1/4 of the strained braising liquid back. Next time I will use a blonde beer. Not a beer drinker so I thought the"
"Just made these, they're great. I got kisses and thank you's!
I'm trying to incorporate coconut oil into my husband's diet so I used 3 T melted organic extra virgin coconut oil instead of butter. The coconut oil adds nice, subtle flavor to the taste. Served with butter and maple syrup, nobody noticed the difference. Taking cues from other rev..."
Reviewed White Bean Dip with Pita Chips
"This one is worthy of your recipe box. It's delicious, healthy, quick and easy to make! I find that 1/2 lemon zest and 1/2 juice makes it lemony with less tartness. I also like to add about 1/4 cup fresh basil when available, really adds to the freshness. You can make it several hours in advance and keep refrigerated until ready to use. I haven't"
Reviewed Chicken Florentine Style
"Absolutely delicious! I made two breasts and the same amount of sauce, some of which I added to the spinach, there was nothing left over, in fact we were scraping our plates!
I substituted 1 C dry vermouth + 1/4 C water for the white wine, used half chicken stock and half cream, fresh curly winter spinach (incredibly sweet, especially the stems)"
Reviewed Buttered Turnip Puree
"Revised Review: I make this turnip mash recipe about once a month, and my family usually mistakes it for mashed potatoes. It's a low-carb, low-fat alternative to spuds. Since it calls for about 3-1/4 cups more milk than required, save the milk to use in corn chowder, corn / Indian pudding, creamed veggies, etc. The milk is naturally sweet yet sa"
Avid "foodie" & collector/creator of recipes since 1970s. Mother was a cordon-bleu & wonderful teacher. From her I learned the basics & more: vinaigrettes, sauces, soups/potages, souffl?s, tartes, brioche, breads, p?te ? chou, & many classic pl?ts fran?ais... after Mom, Child & Beard were biggest source of culinary inspiration. Anna Thomas (Vegetarian Epicure) a close third.
