Reviewed Oven-Fried Chicken
"Why? The chicken tastes great, but you've already heated up a pot of hot oil so why not just go ahead and fry it until it's done? Just don't get the two step process or what it accomplishes."
"This is really extraordinary. Not only did I make a fantastic dinner, I learned a new technique: thickening sauces with nut purees, in this case almonds. I felt like I was eating a rich, heavy cream sauce yet there wasn't a trace of cream in it and I didn't find the almond flavor overpowering at all. I tried one thing different, and I definitely w"
"I do not believe for a micro-second that this is the best thing that Alton Brown has ever made. If this were true, he would not be the food star that he is. The chicken really wasn't bad--the reason for the second star--but there was too much olive mixture. And the potatoes were swimming in chicken fat. I could eat only the crunchiest pieces resti"
Reviewed Fish Piccata
"Delicious, as is. No need to change a thing with this recipe. It's just what something like ultra mild--and sometimes tasteless--tilapia needs. It's also a very good basic piccata recipe, good with sauteed chicken breast also. The sauce is excellent drizzled around some rice on the plate with the fish. Very, very good! ""
Reviewed Greek Panzanella
"Oh so good!! I got some really good olive oil and red wine vinegar as stocking stuffers for Christmas, so I thought this would be a good way to try them out. This is a superbly flavorful salad. Maybe the recipe calls for just a bit too much bread, but any leftover bread can be removed to a sheet pan and dried out in a 200 degree oven. Talk about g""
Reviewed Almost-Famous Rosemary Bread
"I have made this many times, and it is an awesome bread, very close to what you get in the restaurant. I do have a couple of comments: I see no reason to use two sheet pans and I no longer do. Spacing the four loaves as far apart as possible on one sheet pan works fine. Occasionally two will rise to touch each other, but they are easily separated ""
"This is a review of the stuffing only. The recipe still isn't right. 1 teaspoon each chopped fresh parsley and sage provide only trace amounts of flavor for so much bulk. It should be 1 tablespoon each instead. I stayed with the 1 teaspoon thyme, but wish I had upped that also. Thyme and apples make a very happy marriage. The 5 x 8 baking dish--wh""
Reviewed Light Ranch Dressing
"This is a delicious and easy Ranch dressing, not fat free, which is a plus, but lighter than the original. I suggest using only 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce until you've tasted the mixture. Add the second teaspoon to taste. ""
I am a real estate agent specializing in residential properties in Northwest Tucson, including Dove Mountain, Marana and Oro Valley. I'm also a serious home chef frustrated by not having made it (yet!) to the Culinary Institute of America or a Cordon Bleu school. Cooking is my art, passion, relaxation and joy. It's tough to let a day go by without cooking something.
