  • I completely enjoy the Morrocan Grilled Chicken, it is absolutely delicous; tried it with shrimp–LOVE IT!! No need to purchase barbeque sauce any longer–corn scallion salad is very refreshing with both entrees–}:>)

  • I made Grandma Annie’s Chocolate Chip Mandel Bread. It was really great! Not as dry or hard as biscotti. I also didn’t bake it for quite as long on the last baking. I will definitely make this again and would recommend it. I look forward to trying more of your recipes.

  • Because I’m new to your blog, I’ve only made one recipe so far at home – the Homemade Granola. Loved it! The only change I made was to add flax seeds and pumpkin seeds.

  • This is a great contest! Not only for the prize, but it also kind of forces me (in a gentle way) ‘ write some reviews/comments.

    As I’ve made a lot of your recipes (I love this blog) yet haven’t posted any reviews yet. So now’s the time.

    I’ve already posted two (hummus and the crave-worthy sugar cookies…both great) and will post a few more later on (shhh, I’m at work)…

  • I’ve made the Summer Vegetable Soup with Pesto several times. I love this recipe, it’s easy and hearty. I have modified the recipe by using chicken bouillon for more flavor and also boiled a whole jalapeno (stem cut off) in the broth for a moderate spice. I’ve used pesto and have also simply added lemon. This is my husbands favorite soup recipe!

  • I had a conversation with a friend about banana bread yesterday and she said the recipe she found online was just really bland and not that great. I asked her what website she used and told her that one of my favorites was the chai spiced banana bread on Once Upon a Chef. I love chai anything and happened upon the recipe by chance actually. It was excellent and was the perfect mix of spices. It’s not a boring banana bread at all, so I can’t wait for her to try it and get back to me.

It is MY play after a long day of being with special needs kids. I’ve actually used cooking as a modality working with some of my clients. Thanks Jennifer for your passion and dedication.

  • I have made your Potato Leek Soup twice already – it was love at first bite. Your flavors are very subtle, but lovely. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly. Lovely first course that did not distort the palate for a heartier main course. Second time I made this lovely soup, I tweaked it a bit for a main course. I par-boiled my potatoes first, then added them -skin on – to stock mixture. I added some cayenne, paprika, celery salt a touch of Old Bay. After blending ingredients, I strained soup mixture and poured over cooked shrimp. Topped with Gruyere and croutons. Yummy! Loved both versions. Thank you for sharing a lovely dish!

  • As a home chef, and self proclaimed “foodie”I have been thoroughly enchanted with Jennifer’s recipes. They are simple, user friendly, consistently delicious and have very complex flavor profiles. My favorites are too numerous to list but several have become standards at our dinner table. I always look forward to an email which features a new recipe. What a great resource! Thanks .

  • I’ve made your double chocolate meringue cookies. I loved them because they are super easy to make, gluten free, and really yummy. My husband brews his own beer and we had the cookies with his imperial stout and a hint of homemade coconut milk. It was a real treat. Thanks for the many wonderful recipes you offer. And I would love to win the cookware.

  • Made your crave-worth sugar cookies for my kiddos this past Wed nite! They’re crisp on the edges and chewy in the center- my girls loved them as well as hubby and I- and we don’t even like sugar cookies! So the recipe was perfect- the addition of the cream cheese was great! Would not alter it any way!!

  • The homemade granola is an excellent recipe that is made once or twice a week (we eat a lot of granola). I’ve made it with dried cherries, raisins, and dried cranberries- I think that the cherries work the best for a chewier texture than the cranberries but a slightly tarter flavor than the raisins that helps balance out the sweetness of the honey.

  • onion braised beef brisket..
    made this for christmans. ordered theweight brisket needed and omg.. that was a big brisket size wise.. this led to a couple issues finding the right size pan but we worked it out. the flavor was excellent. the problem we had was timing…. we had too many appetizers which made it hard to get people to eat the main dishes. the meat was on ‘low’ for so long it toughened up. but the taste was still great. the recipe was a winner. our timing..not so much.

  • I made your Vietnamese Carmelized shrimp once – it was delicious but seriously, I don’t think my kitchen has enough ventilation to make anything with fish sauce again – so smelly! 😉 I’m part Vietnamese, so I’m a little ashamed of this fish-sauce squeamishness, but can’t help it. I’d love to make it again, maybe outside or in my parents’ kitchen, which has windows. Really really yummy!

  • Your roasted Brussels sprouts recipe convinced me to try a vegetable that I never had before, and I love it! I follow your ingredients but usually just estimate the quantities – come out great!

  • I recently made your Bulgur Salad with Cucumbers, Red Peppers, Chick Peas, Lemon, and Dill…I made a few changes based on what I had (used scallions instead of red onions and left out the red bell peppers), and it made for a delicious dinner served with roast chicken. I especially liked the fact that it had everything going for it (wheat, vegetables, and protein), so no other side dish was necessary!

    - Dorothea on March 9, 2013 Reply
  • My other favorite from your site is the basic banana bread – great, plain banana bread, perfect for toasting (a little better than the chai spiced, since it isn’t so very soft – at least for me, since I don’t have a toaster oven) The kids love it – again sometimes I use coconut oil, or part whole wheat flour, but other than that the only alteration is sometimes doubling it!

    - Sarah on March 9, 2013 Reply
  • My favorite from your site is the Chair Spiced Banana bread – am going to make it again this morning! The only alteration I sometimes make is to use coconut oil in place of the butter – and then you just have to make sure you don’t add any cold ingredients that will make the oil solidify. Also sometimes I double it to make two loaves!

  • What a beautiful giveaway prize. I’ve been looking for some stainless steel cookware and these sounds perfect.

    I’ve always enjoy your especially this Winter Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad. So easy to make and your instructions are so clear. I love it. The sweet and tart flavor from the fruit are so refreshing. The only thing is that my kids think it’s a little too tart for them. So, I separate a little bowl for them and toss theirs with a little drizzle of agave before serving and they loved it.

  • I made the Curried Roasted Carrots, except that I subbed butternut squash instead of carrots.
    It was DELICIOUS! YUM.
    I’ll make with Sweet POtatoes next!

  • The crispy kale chips with parm and lemon were a huge hit! My grandson, who eats NO green veg loved them so much that he asked me to teach him to make them himself. (he’s 11) Then when his older cousins came to visit they picked a trash bag full of kale from my garden and actually helped teach them how. Though some preferred them without lemon – they all loved them. We’ve tried different seasoning and salt/pepper/garlic mix with the cheap can of parm was easiest for the kids. Thanks for getting him to eat something green.

  • I made your Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust and Caramel Sauce for a Thanksgiving potluck with friends last year. The filling was really flavorful and creamy! My only complaint with the recipe was that I found the crust to be a little soggy. I weighed my crust ingredients with a kitchen scale, so I think the portion were correct, but it didn’t have a very pleasant texture. I prefer a crust with a little more heft to contrast with the smooth and creamy cheesecake filling. Again, I’m not sure if that was a fault of mine or the recipe.

    When I make cheesecake, I find that the extra step of straining the batter into the pan really helps get out any lumps of cream cheese, egg, or spices and ensures a perfectly smooth filling. Also, I’ve learned that a piece of heavy duty white thread (or unflavored dental floss) can ensure a gorgeous presentation of a cut cheesecake.

    (I’m sharing the review here and under the original recipe post, since I wasn’t sure which was preferred.)

  • I added 1-1/2 tsp of Marash pepper flakes only because I like a little more zip to my recipes. Otherwise this is a yummy recipe and oh so simple to do. I served this with BBQ’d chicken thighs, a mesclun mix salad and warm slices of my homemade baguette.
