Reviewed Hunter's Minestrone
"Excellent. I think the servings are off. Mine made 5 quarts, way more than 6 servings. The changes I made were using 2 cloves chopped garlic cooked with the herbs instead of using a whole head in the stock; 1/2 bunch de-stemmed chopped kale instead of the parsley; and cooked my own cannellini beans instead of using canned. All family members decla"
"Mmmm, delicious! I was very excited to see the shanks on sale at the grocery, but short on time so adapted the recipe for the pressure cooker. It came out beautifully in about 25 minutes under high pressure actual cook time in my 7 quart Kuhn Rikon cooker. The main difference when using a pressure cooker is that the more tender herbs should be add"
Reviewed Broccoli Soup
"Very nice. My family enjoyed this soup. (Didn't make the croutons) I used a leek and shallot in place of the onion because that's what I had, and homemade veal stock. Also added some crushed red pepper, and garnished with a sprinkle of nutmeg. "
Reviewed Homemade Tomato Soup
"This looked like a good recipe but as written calls for a massive amount of fat so to reduce calories, I just drizzled about 2 tablespoons lightly on the tomatoes for the roasting, and used just about a tablespoon to sweat the vegetables. I also used about 1-1/2 cups of stock and added a tablespoon of tomato paste. Butter wasn't added until the end, and I used half of the recommended amount, and added just a couple of tablespoons of cream. I'm sure with all the extra fat it would taste great but it was quite good without and both my husband and I enjoyed it. 2 servings.
Reviewed Turkey Pot Pie with Sage Crust
"Delicious recipe with a wonderful crust. Quite rich though! I used turkey stock made from the carcass of a roasted turkey which had been brined, and leftover breast meat from the same bird. When making the crust I first used the Crisco and half of the butter, processing as directed, then add the remaining cold butter which had been cut into pieces, processing just until the butter pieces were the size of small peas. This method improves the texture of the crust.
Reviewed Pork Chili Verde
"I made this using much less stock. It probably should read 4 cups rather than 4 quarts. The flavor was quite good, so I gave three stars though I used only poblano and anaheim chiles. The sauce did lack body. I thickened with cornstarch which helped, and added some cream cheese which made a big difference. There is still too much sauce though, because the tomatillos added even more liquid. The excess green sauce would be great with eggs.
Reviewed Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
"I made some changes also as follows, and they came out perfect!
Sifted together the flour, salt, soda and 1/4 cup cocoa. Creamed together the sugars and butter, then added the eggs whole one at a time as with a traditional cookie recipe. I added an ounce of unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled, to the butter mixture along with the vanilla. I used mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. Chilled dough, and baked for 10 mins in a 350º F oven. Used a #40 disher and parchment lined baking sheets. They came out picture perfect and tasted fabulous.
Reviewed Brown Rice, Tomatoes and Basil
"This paired well with some simple grilled pork chops seasoned with rosemary. I used Seasoned Rice Vinegar which is milder. I also added all the dressing ingredients (using much less salt) to the tomatoes and basil to let that marinate a bit first, and added the rice afterward. Very nice dish, easy to make with accessible ingredients.
