Really liked the sauce on these, all the amounts had the right balance of flavors, well enjoyed."

3 days ago in on Food.com

I love that this is a complete meal done ahead of time, and the pesto gives it a great flavor. I used a half cup of broth (for a half recipe), but I think I would add more next time, so the chicken can soak up the juiciness from it - and I think to make it more "stew-like" wouldn';t be a bad thing either. Any which way, a very good all-in-one...

These were outstanding. It is amazing that you can have so many ingredients and yet taste them all and not have one overpower another. We chopped up whole berry capers (our preference) to the size of regular ones, finely diced the lox and used the sour cream (which I think would be the best choice). The combination was really dynamite!"

Potatoes and chorizo are a marriage made in heaven, so of course we loved this! We saved the tomatoes to top raw at the end. I bet guacamole would be great with this too."

Just excellent! I made this with I can';t believe it';s not butter and brown sugar, since we don';t have unflavored honey in the house. I tried 2 small batches - one with dried and the other with fresh cranberries. Both were indescribably delicious, but I think I preferred the fresh. It was great on toast, but even better on english m...

A very good and quick weeknight meal. I like to add a little hot sauce and lime to my guacamole, so did that here too, and it was great that way. You could definitely do this up and add more things as well (cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, etc.), though we didn';t."

Jan 14, 2015 in on Food.com

Oh, wow! Super good. We used less of the crushed red pepper and more basil, and omitted the mozzarella (the feta was plenty of cheese for us). The pesto and feta really make this sandwich special. We really enjoyed the combination. Thank you!"

Jan 13, 2015 in on Food.com

Caramelizing brussels sprouts gives them such a great flavor, and the bacon enhances that here. I accidentally doubled the bacon - made a half recipe and thought I had one slice, when two were stuck together (but it definitely wasn';t too much bacon). The avocado is really unique in this. I have to admit though, I topped the plates with it ro...

Jan 5, 2015 in on Food.com

Great sandwich! DH asked me to use less dressing and more feta, which worked out well for us. This is a yummy spin on a BLT, kind of like a BLT salad in a sandwich. The flavors were spot on; the Caesar and feta gave it something different, which was quite nice."

Jan 5, 2015 in on Food.com

Excellent combination! Everything goes really well together, especially the avocado and lox (always love that pair). We very much enjoyed the "sauce" part of it, and DH thought it could be used for other things too. It made for a wonderful and filling dinner."

Jan 4, 2015 in on Food.com

I played with this a little, but think it still has the same basic integrity of the recipe. I used more parsley, a combination of sun dried and regular tomatoes, and added some capers and marinated artichokes to it too (so, I did not add any extra oil). It was a great dish!"

The grilled veggies are the real star here. I used goat cheese instead of the optional mozzarella, and added some tomato paste for the base. The pizza came out great!"

New way for us to make our brussels sprouts, and we were very happy with how they came out. I followed another reviewer and used a third of the butter. We love our veggies, so the two of us easily ate a half recipe of this!"

Dec 31, 2014 in on Food.com

Sounded great, but ended up being a little bitter - not sure if it was the zest or too much mustard seed. Love all the ingredients in it (especially the curry leaves), and liked the end product, just didn';t "love it"."

Yummy dish. For our tastes, I used just a little bit of the sugar. I also added more nuts and a whole cucumber for a half recipe (pretty sure they use cucumber at the restaurant), and it was nice to have a fair amount of vegetables in there. There is a lot of sauce, so you could definitely use less soy (I used reduced sodium) and broth, especially...

A very nice side dish, the BBQ gives them great flavor. To make a large batch to puree for tomato sauce or just to use diced in a pasta dish would be a great use for these also."

Delicious entree salad, a great combination together and easy for a complete meal. I used less mustard and added some blue cheese to it. I am sure adding whatever veggies you like would work as well. Thanks for this recipe!"

This looked too good and interesting not to try. And it was definitely good in a weird kind of way. I did halve the tartar sauce and cheese (and both were more than enough for our tastes). All the flavors were good together and this was well enjoyed."

Really good dressing. I like how the soy and cashews give it a unique flavor, almost tahini like. We like our dressing tart, so I omitted the honey and added quite a bit more lemon. I think you could put this dressing on any kind of green salad, as well as one that has chicken, etc. on it - it is quite versatile."
