Aug 8, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Perfect for a quick pound cake. I only had 2 eggs so I used 1/4 homemade applesauce (just happened to have been given a jar) for the 3rd egg. I have substituted banana or applesauce for an egg in the past and it always works!. Used up leftover ingredients from my refrigerator.
Will make again and add orange rind."

Great recipe!! I used boneless chicken breast cut into 1" pieces and deep fried at 375 for 5-6 minutes. Also have done these with and without the sauce and then dipped in blue cheese dressing. Nice appetitzer or meal. Served with home made french fries and cheese. Then went on 2 mile walk :("

Quick, easy delicious side or main meal. Make this frequently especially in summer with fresh broccoli from local farmers market. I use fresh parmesan shreds on top which give this dish just the right flavor blend."

Very tasty Buffalo pizza with little effort and little expense. However, I made the sauce with Worcestershire as indicated and did not like the taste and had to pitch it. Remade it without and it was great!!! Used Wolfgang Puck's pizza dough recipe and made individual pizza pies to please everyone. "

Reviewed Pizza Dough

Oct 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The best recipe I've found so far. The dough was just the right texture and taste (and very easy to form). I believe the double rise and length of time gives it a better flavor. I used Red Star yeast which I proofed for 7 min and bread flour. Dough looked just like the picture.Made four individual pizza pies. Prebaked dough for 5 minutes. DEFINITE"

Followed the recipe exactly and it was DELICIOUS!!! Served with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. This recipe will also work with Marsala as one viewer noted. THe Maderia is similar to the taste of Marsala. Brined the pork chops prior with Alton Brown's 2 hour Mustard Brine for pork chops. Will make again for company. Better than Chicken"

Oct 20, 2012 in on Food.com

Worked perfectly for me! I cut the recipe in 1/2 as I only did 2 pork chops and marinated for 1 1/2 hrs as pork chops were a little thin. The salt and sugar never really totally dissolve as you can always see them in the bottom of the container but the marinade does work. I then followed up with Aaron McCargo's Pork Chop with Mushroom and Maderia...

Great potato dish. Baked at 400 degrees covered with edge opened after reading reviews. Baked for 50 minutes and the potatoes were sliced very thin. Tylers recipes are always on point. Sometimes the recipes and videos are different with alot of the chefs. I usually view both before trying a new recipe"

Made these ( from Mrs Fields cookie recipe book) and they come out perfect and taste just as good. Served with vanilla ice cream for added delight. Cut in small squares as directed as they are sweet and filling. Mixed the dough in the food processor on pulse. Also used light brown sugar and it doesn't change the effect or taste."

Absolutely delicious!! I decreased the cayenne pepper as sometimes it can be too spicey. Accidently used grated Gruyere cheese (we were cooking different dishes at the same time) instead of mozarella. The Gruyere melted perfectly over the seasoned mayo and was GREAT!! Expensive but well worth it. "

Saw this when it aired on TV a while back. Very very good indeed. I believe roasting the tomatoes gives this dish a richer flavor. Be sure to use quality San Marzano tomatoes. It is a bit time consuming and best not to make in a hurry."

Reviewed Perfect Marinara Sauce

Sep 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Definitely a very light marinara sauce. Good for mixing with seafood.
I added a little onion (diced very small) with the garlic, a teaspoon of sugar and added the cup of water gradually. The sauce does thicken as it cooks(cook slowly and stir frequently). You can also add a tablespoon (or so)of tomato paste if you want a thicker sauce. "
