Read on a food blog to make them in the waffle maker. That's my go-to method for perfect doneness on both sides. It changed the texture a bit and I liked the result- they had an airiness unlike the pan frying method.

Thanks for the convection information- they made a completely different chip than in the regular oven- lighter and crispier. I also used a better grade of olive oil than in the past and that a make or break factor too."

I make fish at least once a week. I've tried recipes from this (and the other famous) site. My family likes this one the best. "

I made 4 on my George Foreman grill and the kitchen got smoky by the 3rd one even though I cleaned the grill after each one. I saw a spot on YouTube from Huts something or other where he used more seasoning. So, I used McCormick's Chicken Grill Mates with a shake of paprika and parsley flakes. They sat for 24 hours. They were definitely done ("

I never liked beef stew because of the blandness of grey gravy. Not any more. The chocolate, seasonings, tomato and wine are perfect. The color and aroma draw you in. I just bake a few Pilsbury Grands right before serving and its a complete meal that the family loves. "
