Reviewed Pork Loin Sandwich

Jun 27, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very tasty! I only gave it 4 stars because I deviated from it a bit. Instead of a pork tenderloin, I got 3 boneless pork "sirloin steaks" (chops) and marinated them this way. I used the same amount of honey instead of sugar, and only brined them for about 2 hours. I also deleted the peppers. After brining, I seared the chops, then removed"

I followed this recipe to the letter with the exception that I used half whole wheat flour and half AP. Even with using whole wheat, I ended up using almost TWICE as much flour as it calls for. The dough was so loose and so soupy, I had to keep adding flour just to get it to form a ball. I then let it rise, formed the rolls and then refrigerated t"

Nov 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This made a really good dressing, but it does make a HUGE amount! Way more than the six servings listed. I also halved most of the ingredients and used one bag of stuffing and a little bit of extra bread cubes. I used fresh cranberries because I didn't have dried. That worked fine. I ended up using about 4 cups of stock/water. Very tasty, but I ha"

This stuff rocks! I made it to go along with his Italian Beef, and as good as that Beef is, I think I like this even more. I added a little bit of diced onion to it, and a little bit of dried marjoram along with the dried oregano, but otherwise I followed this to the letter. I've got it in a sealed jar in the fridge now and it will be really good...

Reviewed Homemade Soft Pretzels

Dec 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this recipe several times now, and each time was just fantastic. I always use half whole wheat flour and half unbleached all purpose flour, and always have great success. The ONLY thing I do differently is the portion size. Usually I make them half as big as AB does, and make 16 pretzels. I like this size better than the gigantic ones t...

Nov 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These are just outstanding! I followed the recipe to the letter, including using Highly Active Instant Rise Yeast, which did not need to be proofed and could go right in with the ingredients. I also added more cinnamon to the filling, like other reviewers suggested. I was a little dubious myself when they didn't rise as much as I'd expected overn...

Reviewed Mortadella and Fig Focaccianini

Sep 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This sandwich was delicious! Hard to believe that neither my fiance or I had ever had mortadella before, but we both wanted to try it after seeing this show. I used homemade foccacia bread, mortadella, fontinella and the fig spread. YUM! This is a definite keeper.""

Reviewed Pumpkin Pie

Nov 30, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really liked this recipe! This was the first pumpkin pie I've ever made, and the first time I dealt with a "real" pumpkin. I had no problems at all. I used a "Seminole Pumpkin" since I wanted something local. They are very sweet, like the Sugar Pie variety. I used more ginger snaps for the crust too, so had to use a little more butter. I accidentally...

Reviewed The Oatiest Oatmeal Cookies Ever

Oct 25, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I've made several of AB's recipes before, usually with great success, so I was a little surprised at these. I did everything as instructed and weighed everything out, but my cookies also spread a lot and came out very very thin. I soaked the raisins in cranberry juice instead of rum. I've been making similar oatmeal cookies for years now, but with...
