This is a pretty good cake and it uses a box cake mix. I always gets good reviews, so you might want to try it..

Replied to Fall Salad Recipe : Tyler Florence : Food Network

I watched it again and see that he doesn't use the entire recipe, but drizzle a portion of the recipe over the salad. However, there is no mention of shallot.

Holy Cow. I watched the video and Tyler puts about two tablespoons Dijon,1/2 cup balsamic, 1/2 cup maple syrup, lots of olive oil. (no shallot)
I'm glad I watched and noticed his portions!

Different recipe from the one on her website. That one calls for mushrooms, parmesan cheese, white wine, etc.

I cut back on the mayo and onion; 1 cup mayo and 1/2 cup onion. Almost didn't put the dill in because I didn't think I would like it. So glad I put in the dill Delicious, and a huge hit!!!

I agree with using 1/3 onion. Used 3/4 mayo.

wow... you give a bad rating because you think it looks bad. It tastes wonderful and for a lot of us not 'way too much' dressing.

Hi Ruth. Did you bake for 15 minutes at 450 before turning your oven to 225? Seems to work for me. It's still delicious!!

May 1, 2014 on

I agree with beasel; I live in Texas and when we can't put brisket on the smoker, this is a great choice. If you follow the directions you can't miss. House smells wonderful while this is cooking. Have served it for company twice and it was
a hit!! (I did cut the salt in half)

I think this is just ok, I like cobbler a little more juicy. The flour makes it quite dry (ice cream helps, though). I will keep searching for another recipe. (I used fresh peaches)

Be careful when getting your can of La Lechera (I bought Nestle) some are plain La Lechera and there is another type, usually right next to it that says La Lechera, dulce de leche with the word Caramel underneath. The cans look exactly alike, but you need to get the can that says caramel. I think this is why people are finding their pie is runny"

Hey 'buffaloatheart' didn't you know taco seasoning and ranch dressing had preservatives in it before you made the recipe? Why did you make the soup in the first place? We liked it and the soup is very good.
I think you wanted to hate the recipe before you tried it."

This is a very good pie. I baked it at 400 but wish I had followed other reviewer's advice and turned it down to 350 after putting the pie in the oven. It was too brown on top and the crust also. It is a good recipe, however, and tastes delicious."

Dec 3, 2012 in on

This is ok, but it's not the original See's fudge recipe. I got the recipe in 1962 while living in Los Angeles. It has 2 sticks butter, 4 1/2 cups sugar, 2 jar marshmallow cream, 1 can evap. milk, tablespoon vanilla, 2 cups nuts and 2 cups chocolate chips. I'm not saying this is a bad recipe, it's pretty good, but butter makes it richer."

Great way to fix the wings, but I won't use the sauce again. It's too thin, I would just as well buy Franks Wing Sauce.""
