Reviewed Lemony Sage Chicken in Milk

4 days ago in on

easily the best baked chicken i';ve ever had. it';s as if the chicken is wearing a lemony sagey perfume that is at once subtle but pervasive. the chicken is moist and the sauce divine. i didn';t dump the butter from the pot as suggested, but next time i sauce wasn';t as thick as i would have liked. regardless, this recipe...

Shared Recipe Turkey Pot-Au-Feu

Dec 29, 2014 on

"Adapted from a Cooking Light recipe. "Pot-au-feu is a simple French dish of meat and vegetables simmered together. In this version, root vegetables and leftover turkey bask in a rich broth that's begging to be sopped up with warm bread." The original recipe calls for 2 cups of leftover cooked turkey, but because I used a thick homemade turkey stoc..."

I ran out of apple cider vinegar so I subbed white vinegar. I also added honey. I didn';t bother with the whole sealing thing because I will be keeping it in the fridge. I made this for my husband and we both agreed it was our fave. Waaaay better than what you can buy at the store! I ended up spooning it over cream cheese and phyllo for a qui...

Reviewed Best Ever Peanut Butter Fudge

Dec 18, 2014 in on

Giving three stars because, while good mine turned out gritty - even though I followed the recipe exactly. I';m no fudge-expert, but I think this was due to the fact that my Calphalon pan gets hotter than other pans, and my burner tends to overheat as well. I submitted a simple correction to the recipe that would have saved it - heat to 234-2...

Used the recipe as a general guideline, and it came out really good! My pass-along tip: I added cauliflower and carrots. They may have been the best part! I had to adjust the time and amount of liquid but well worth it! I needed to use up leftover turkey so this was made with turkey drummies, deboned and added in the last ten mins. I was lazy so I...

"My husband and I went to La Madelene's the other day and he ordered the chicken friand. It was so yummy that we decided to make it at home the following week. *** WOW! *** It turned out WAY better than the restaurant's. Adjust seasonings and addition of wine to taste. (for example, tarragon would be soooo good.) We served with roasted asparagus & a..."

"If you're looking for a Mexican Rice recipe that will be "the star of the show," this is not the recipe. If, however, you're looking for a pleasantly and subtlely flavored Mexican-style rice to accompany a spicier main dish, this fits the bill perfectly."

I made this last night and I have to say, don';t let the simplicity fool you. This was one of the best soups I';ve ever made/eaten. It';s delish, rich, warm - the essence of Thanksgiving without the noise! I did not use parsley, and (as you can see in the photo) added a container of mushrooms which I had sauteed in butter and thyme. B...

Rating 4 stars instead of 5 only because the spices are off. Like other reviewers, I doubled the spices. Then I added tumeric and a good amount of salt. Great starter recipe and the results were fabulous! In a separate pan I cooked up chicken chipotle sausage (HEB brand) and then fried leek rings. I topped the soup with the cubed sausage and cris...

DH made this for me while I was sick and we had some garden fresh squash to use up. SO GOOD. I wandered into the kitchen when he was about to wrap it up, and made a few personal adjustments: brought soup back up to a boil and added chicken bullion and 1/2 cup of cream. Added about 2 tsp powdered sage and cracked pepper as well. This was so good on"
