This worked out very well. It is the only way I cook fresh corn on the cob."

Reviewed Portillo's Chopped Salad (Kinda Like)

Sep 21, 2014 in on Food.com

The salad ingredients are the same as Portillo';s Chopped salad. The dressing is a very good tasting balsamic vinegar dressing. Portillo';s chopped salad dressing, however, does not look like this dressing. This recipe';s dressing does work with the salad ingredients. I"m glad I made it."

This is wonderful! HIghly recommend it. The sauce came out very smooth and completely delicious. I used one of the recipes on this site for the evaporated milk. It worked great in this recipe. Thanks, Exercising Chef, for sharing your recipe."

Reviewed Kitchenaid Crusty Pizza Dough

Sep 5, 2014 in on Food.com

This was a fine pizza dough. I got about 1 1/4 lbs. of dough and that was enough for two 12 inch pizzas. I only needed 2 1/2 c. of flour. I liked the idea of starting with a warm mixing bowl."

Reviewed Lou Malnati's Chicago Stylepizza Crust - Dough

Sep 3, 2014 in on Food.com

This is a good pizza dough recipe but mine did not turn out similar to Lou Malnati';s. I eat Lou Malnati';s as often as I can since I am fortunate to live in the Chicagoland area. I noticed that the real Lou Malnati';s pizza did not have corn meal on the bottom of the crust. My pizza dough turned out chewy rather than crispy. I de...

The cocoa gives this one layer cake a really, really chocolatey flavor. I used 1/2 cup of boiling coffee instead of boiling water. It was easy and fast to put together."

My family and I did not care for the taste of these crackers. There is nothing wrong with the recipe. It was just not to our liking."

Reviewed Quincy's Yeast Rolls

Jul 23, 2014 in on Food.com

These were the largest, fluffiest yeast rolls I have ever made. I did not need to adjust the wet or dry ingredients for the bread machine. I used exactly what the recipe called for.I divided the dough into thirteen 2.3 ounce rolls. After the first 10 minutes of baking, I brushed them with melted butter and then continued baking. Great, great re...

Reviewed Baked Salmon

Jul 12, 2014 in on Food.com

This was just ok. I followed the recipe exactly. I agree with others that said 6 tablespoons of oil is way too much. I felt there just wasn';t much flavor to it. I';m thinking of putting the leftover salmon on top of a tossed salad."

Reviewed The Very Best Salisbury Steak

Jul 9, 2014 in on Food.com

I liked this recipe. My husband loved it. Since he is the family Salisbury Steak expert, I gave the recipe 5 stars. I made it in my 10" cast iron pan. The patties got a nice crisp crust. The meat was very, very tender. I served it with mashed potatoes."

Reviewed Chocolate Cookies W/Hershey's Cocoa Powder

Jul 6, 2014 in on Food.com

I seem to always have success with recipes from the Hershey company. These cookies were also successful. I had a few ounces of leftover semi sweet chocolate chips so I added those to the batter. These are a very good tasting chocolate cookie."

Reviewed Paul Newman's Best Dip Ever

Jul 4, 2014 in on Food.com

This dip got mixed reviews at a family get together. I think more people would have liked it if I made the cream cheese and avocado pieces smaller. Next time I';ll try to cut the cream cheese and the avocado to be about the same size as the corn kernels."

Reviewed Apple Crostata With Caramel Sauce

Jul 4, 2014 in on Food.com

I really liked the crust recipe. I chilled it for 30 minutes, as recommended and then let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes. It rolled out very easily to a 12 inch round. I liked the crostata. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars instead of 4 stars is that I would have liked a little bit of juice in the filling. I expe...

Reviewed Margo's Can't Eat One Piece Cherry Pie

Jun 29, 2014 in on Food.com

I am a very inexperienced pie maker. I am so pleased with how this pie turned out. I love how the filling thickened enough to hold together when each slice was cut. I knew my cherries were tart so I bumped up the sugar to 1 cup and I also added 1/4 t. of almond extract. Many other cherry pie recipes include almond extract so I thought it would...
