    Serve this restaurant quality dish with al dente angel hair pasta on the side -- as written this is quite lemony you may want to have a little more chicken broth and cream handy to tone it down or you may like it just the way it is! --- you can also add in some capers

    Recipe #419721

    I strongly recommend not to omit the wine and lemon juice as it really brings out the flavor, the complete casserole may be assembled and refrigerated until ready to bake -- reduce the fat by using low fat sour cream and mayonnaise (do not use fat free, I suggest not to add in any extra salt

    Recipe #416296

    If you don't have panko just use dry breadcrumbs

    Recipe #413023

    If you are a garlic-lover such as myself you may want to mix in 1 tablespoon fresh finely minced garlic or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder when melting the butter --- plan ahead the rolled breasts need to be refrigerated for a minimum of 3 hours or up to 24 hours before breading, this will allow for easier handling while breading and firm up the cream cheese mixture --- these are very good!

    Recipe #285753

    If you are a lover of Greek food then you will love this chicken, this is not by any means for those who have plain palette, this is a full flavored dish! --- this will fit into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan if you reduce the amount of potatoes otherwise you will need to use a slightly larger size pan, for this the chicken is cut in half do not cut into pieces, remember to check the broth in the pan frequently as it tends to cook down adding in more if needed, you may or may not need to add in more --- serve this with a crusty loaf of bread to dip into the pan juices

    Recipe #350009

    I suggest to use fresh shrimp for this as frozen thawed will create a watery marinade, do not marinade for longer than 30 minutes or the acid in the lemon juice will "cook" the shrimp, adjust the cayenne to suit heat level, I have left the Tabasco as optional you may add it or omit --- this shrimp is very good!

    Recipe #355732

    This is an easy dish to make and so delicious! use you own favorite marinara sauce for this, Classic Fire Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pasta sauce works well for this ---all amounts may be adjusted to taste, this may also be made using skin on chicken pieces with cooking time increased Fire Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pasta Sauce --- serve with garlic bread and a side salad --- see my recipe#105726

    Recipe #355383

    I have left the crushed chili flakes as optional if you like more heat then add them in ---plan ahead the pork needs to marinade for 8-24 hours, make certain to line your pan with foil for easy clean up ---this is very good!

    Recipe #355241

    There has been many requests for pan seared steak that is started in a skillet then finished cooking in the oven this is the recipe/method for the perfect seared steak---to insure perfect doneness you will need an instant-read thermometer for this, and you will need a cast-iron or a heavy oven-proof skillet --- the times listed are for 2-1/2-inch thick steaks preferably New York or rib-eye. --- IMPORTANT do not add on any salt until the steak is finished cooking, salt will draw out the juices, and make certain to leave the steak/s out at room temperature for 1-1/2 hours this will relax the meat fibers and make for a tender juicy steak

    Recipe #354979

    Plan ahead the chicken must be refrigerated in the buttermilk for at least 5 hours, this chicken is double-dipped for an extra crispy coating ---don't omit the baking powder in the breading mix!

    Recipe #352584

    You may not have your chicken any other way after you taste this! --- browning the chicken in oil firstly adds lots flavor, make certain to bread all the chicken breasts and have them ready on a plate before browning.

    Recipe #350179

    This may also be made using a larger roasting chicken however the spice mixture should be increased and the cooking time --- use fresh lemon juice only for this, and for the best flavor remember to keep basting the chicken with the pan juices frequently during cooking --- this chicken is very good!

    Recipe #349646

    This is a simple yet delicious shrimp dish, serve it alone with a crusty French baguette bread to dip in the sauce and a side salad, or serve it over cooked fettuccine or rice --- make certain to completely dry the shrimp with paper towels before using in the recipe, feel free to add in a pinch of your favorite dried herbs and omit the fresh parsley --- servings will yield 3-4 but may easily be increased.

    Recipe #349087

    Coating in flour then browning firstly will insure your chicken will be moist and tender and also add extra flavor to this dish, you will need a large skillet for this or you may use a pot, I use my wide 5-quart chicken fryer skillet --- if you are not an olive-lover you may omit, they really do add flavor to this dish, but do not use black olives --- adjust the chili flakes to suit heat level, using good-quality canned Italian diced tomatoes will only improve the flavor of this dish also for the best flavor I would strongly suggest to use only skin-on bone-in chicken for this --- made as stated this make a delicious restaurant-quality dish paired with cooked pasta and sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top.

    Recipe #325401

    This will not of coarse remove all the salt from the ham but it will intensely reduce the salty flavor after it is cooked, you must use a fully cooked ham for this --- plan ahead the ham must be refrigerated 24 hours before cooking.

    Recipe #345982

    A highly rated recipe from All Recipes.com/submitted by branchan that I have tweaked just slightly I feel for the better! ---I also use this rub on boneless Boston butt roast that I roast in the oven and then slice, for a pork loin about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of the rub should be enough although you may use more if desired --- the roast needs to marinate for a minimum of 6 hours or up to 24 hours in the fridge, then must sit out at room temperature for a couple hours before roasting, so plan well in advance, make certain to line your pan completely with foil, because of the brown sugar it will be very hard to clean, or use a heavy disposable foil pan.

    Recipe #152717

    This is a Latin-style recipe with so much flavor, if you are looking for a wonderful dish to serve to guests, I have to suggest this one, and you can stuff the pork and refrigerate up to 24 hours before roasting. If possible purchase the Crosse and Blackwell red currant jelly brand for this. You can easily double the recipe to four tenderloins to serve 8-10 people if desired. If you love flavor, you will love this pork dish!

    Recipe #190461

    Make sure to purchase a fresh turkey breast for this, the stuffing may be prepared hours or even a day in advance and any remaining stuffing can be baked separately in a dish (see directions).

    Recipe #130863

    NOTE...THE INTERNAL TEMPERATURE NOT THE TIME IS YOUR BEST GUARANTEE FOR DONENESS so for a perfectly cooked prime rib roast invest in a meat thermometer and you will never go wrong with this recipe! --- if desired you may omit the au jus and just serve the roast, I prefer to make the au jus especially if I am serving this at a holiday table --- use nothing else but only fresh garlic, a little salt and lots of fresh ground black pepper for this or you could use 1 teaspoon garlic salt, using any other spices will take away the flavor, nothing else is needed --- cooking on very high heat then reducing the temperature will seal in all the meat juices to produce the most tender and flavorful prime rib, this actually is the method that a lot of the higher end restaurants use to make there prime rib and is the method I always use when I make prime rib roast at my home --- the cooking time stated on the recipe is for a 3-4 pound prime rib, you can use this method for a larger prime rib and increase the cooking time please see bottom of directions --- for a perfectly cooked prime rib roast a meat thermometer inserted in the roast should read about 140 degrees for medium-rare doneness, it is advised not to cook prime rib more that medium-rare ----- using more that the specified amount of salt will draw out the juices from the roast, you could add a little more but it is best to salt the meat after it is cooked, using a minimum amount of salt will insure a juicy tender prime rib roast, 1 teaspoon or less of salt will be fine, remember to remove your roast from the fridge about 2 hours before cooking --- also see my recipe#146196 this is a must served with prime rib!

    Recipe #82023

    A long slow cooking time is what makes this the most tender delicious pot roast and the gravy from this is so good, if you prefer lots of gravy then double all the ingredients, this also works well using a pork roast and also works well using chuck or blade beef roast --- if you find that the taters and carrots are already cooked when you turn the roast over just remove them to a large bowl --- due to the higher salt content from the dry gravy mix and onion soup mix I would suggest to add in salt towards the end of cooking time --- remember to reduce the heat to low setting for the last 4 hours of cooking time --- cooking times are for a 4-pound roast anything less with require a shorter cooking time.
