Thai Grilled Steak with Basil Fried Rice

Thai Grilled Steak with Basil Fried Rice

I normally do not rate a recipe that I did not follow exactly, but the sauce in this recipe is so fantastic, I'm breaking my rule. The only change I made to the sauce was to add grated zest from the lime I used. We had some sauce left over so I tossed it with some soba noodles which I guess my teenage boys ate as a midnight snack because they were gone in the morning. As for the rest of the recipe, I made too many changes to mention and will post my own recipe at some point. Thank you for posting your recipe; it was inspirational! — swibirun 10/16/2013
CRUSTY SOUTHWESTERN SALSA CHICKEN BREASTS WITH LIME

CRUSTY SOUTHWESTERN SALSA CHICKEN BREASTS WITH LIME

Easy and yummy. I made with chicken and also Hake (a type of white fish) fillets. Both turned out well. I followed exactly except I added grated lime zest to the sauce part just because I used the lime for juice also. — pickle13 7/31/2013

Sweet and tender BBQ Baby Back Ribs (Easy clean up)

OMG! Excellent! I'd consider myself as an accomplished home chef but have always been intimidated by ribs. This recipe is foolproof. I followed exactly and finished with a real charcoal grill. Yum! — Aaronzvz 7/6/2013
Chorizo, Kale and Cannellini Bean Soup

Chorizo, Kale and Cannellini Bean Soup

I followed the recipe exactly. The onions were too crunchy and the flavor was lacking, but I think it has possibilities. I want to try it again with carmelizing the onions and adding a Tblsp of tomato paste with the garlic — Emanegold 6/21/2013

Chicken and Leek Pie

Yum. The whole family liked it. Next time I'm making a double recipe because my two teenage sons devoured it and there was not enough for the rest of us. — danpa 3/18/2013
Buttermilk Baked Chicken with Spinach Salad

Buttermilk Baked Chicken with Spinach Salad

I followed the recipe exactly until the end when I made some changes in hopes of saving our dinner. About five minutes into baking I smelled something burning and realized that the breadcrumb topping was getting awfully dark. (Given I have a fairly new and very expensive gormet oven that I've never had an issue with, I think the temperature given in the recipe is too high.) I put foil over the chicken and reduced the temp to 375. The salad portion was way too bland for my liking. I added some blue cheese, but that didn't help it much. The chicken came out overcooked, dry, and uninspiring. My family did not care for it either. It needed something, like maybe bacon? Although that would take much of the healthiness out of the dish. — mstimson 3/18/2013
Flank Steak (Grilled) with Rosemary (Boom)

Flank Steak (Grilled) with Rosemary (Boom)

First I made this with a flank steak which is not one of my favorite cuts. It was ok. Since then I've made it with a London broil and a big 'ol sirloin and both were delicious. This is definitely my favorite marinade for a grilled steak! — mlboom 8/19/2012
Coconut Fish Stew With Basil and Lemon Grass

Coconut Fish Stew With Basil and Lemon Grass

Yummy! I followed the recipe exactly except I like a little heat so I added the jalapeno with seeds and ribs. Also, my lemon grass is under some snow, so I substituted a Tbsp of Penzey's dried lemon grass for the stalk. I can imagine it would have been even better with fresh - I can't wait to make it again in the spring. Thanks for the recipe! — Rolex 2/3/2012
Port Wine Sauce (for Filet Mignon or Prime Rib)

Port Wine Sauce (for Filet Mignon or Prime Rib)

Made my "ford" peppercorn pork tenderloin into a Rolls-Royce. Even my mother-in-law complimented me on the meal. I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't bother with straining the sauce. Also, I added some sauteed baby bellas. Thanks for the recipe! — stevemur 2/3/2012
Mussels with blue cheese

Mussels with blue cheese

Unique and delicious! Thank you for posting this recipe. I served it with steamed artichokes and crusty bread, both excellent when dipped in the sauce. — ChefSandrine 10/28/2011
