Reviewed basic tomato sauce

Aug 10, 2014 on

I used yellow onion, not red--I only use red in raw or slightly cooked preps. 4 Tbls of garlic???? That's almost two heads (not cloves). I cut that back to 4 cloves. Dried herb in the beginning of the cooking, fresh near the end. I used dried Italian at the beginning and finished with a bit of fresh basil. I increased the wine to 1/2 cup and eliminated...

m Wonderful stock. I sub the carcasses and drippings from 3 rotisserie chix for the legs. I like a darker hue, so I use three small onions with dark skins instead of one large. Cook your rice in this (we use brown) add sage, almonds and dried cranberries, and saut��� celery and you have a great side that reminds me of Thanksgiving dinner.

We use a well-seasoned cast iron skillet instead of non-stick. We make 1 1/2 - 2 times the sauce. b/c it';s SOOO good. We found you need to be patient, waiting for the sauce to thicken--esp. since we bump up the volume. We love this, but it does make the house "fragrant." This is our favorite salmon recipe."

Our "go to" Brussels sprouts recipe. So easy, so good! We use 2 - 3 times the black pepper--just because we love the stuff and we've read it has nutritional and antioxidant benefits. The grandkids love this one.

Yummy. Mine turned out pretty thick so in addition to a great soup we had some as a dip. It is a bit spicy, but we loved it.

Awful! Other than cutting the cayenne in 1/2, I followed the recipe. The sauce was very flat. I added left-over chicken gravy, marsala wine and lemon juice to perk it up. There's no way you need 1 cup of flour to dredge 4 chops. If you follow the recipe and use 1 tsp of cayenne, this would be VERY hot.
