Reviewed Turkey Pad Thai
"Delicious. I made the recipe as-is and it's amazing-- one caveat ls that my fish sauce had gone bad so I had to substitute soy sauce at the last second. At first I was worried that the flavor wasn't going to be as good but it actually turned out awesome. I will make this again and again. "
Reviewed Warm Steak and Potato Salad
"So good! This is a definite keeper. Non-salad loving boyfriend went back for seconds! Made it according to the recipe and it turned out great! Next time will add shaved carrots for more veggies.
Note: On the show, Melissa incorporated the bacon drippings/grease into the salad dressing and supplemented it with olive oil to equal 1/4 cup oil to"
Reviewed Goat Cheese Tart
"Amazing. This made me look like a great cook- The filling is A+. Props to Ina! Her recipes are LEGIT. I served this with her Cream of Fresh Tomato Soup and my guests truly enjoyed the meal. BTW-- I didn't have a fancy tart pan so I used a regular foil pie tin from the grocery store. The crust cooked beautifully-- I think it's b/c they have a s"
Reviewed Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops
"Made this 3x. The 4 star review is based on the first time when I prepared the recipe exactly as written. Breading mixture: 5+ stars. It's amazing! Pork chops: 3.5 stars bc they were dry.
Next 2 times they weren't dry:
Try 2: Used the same meat as the first time, but brined it in water, brown sugar, salt, & peppercorns for 1 hr before, then pre""
"The sauce was fantastic even with the substitution of bacon instead of pancetta since that's what I had in the fridge. I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because the chicken skin didn't remain crispy after I braised the meat, similar to what other reviewers have said. To remedy the soggy skin dilemma, I put the chicken in a 450 degree oven for 20 ""
Reviewed Caprese Tartlets
"Yum! So easy and quick. Never would've thought to make regular sliced store bought bread into tartlet shells. Great creative use of a kitchen staple-- Made it for a fast lunch after seeing this episode and it was definitely much better than using that same bread to make another boring sandwich! Unfortunately, the only ingredient I didn't have was ""
Reviewed Cream of Fresh Tomato Soup
"Loved this soup! Followed the recipe exactly, including using the food mill. I liked how the food mill weeded out the tomato peel and excess onion peel. However, I found the process of putting it through the mill a bit labor intensive (I think my mill is smaller than Ina's, so that could be why). Next time, I might just peel and seed the tomatoes ""
Reviewed Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread
"Awesome! I had some zucchini in the fridge and needed to find a way to disguise it, since my picky bf "hates zucchini" and "hates zucchini bread." Could've fooled me since he ate a slice of this for breakfast 3 days in a row! I told him it was coffee cake, ha. I'm no baker but it turned out super moist-- I only have one loaf pan, so I had to bake ""
