Perfect and stupendous! My first real souffle, and it was wonderful.

Excellent! We were having a turkey/apple/sage meatloaf, and we'd planned some sort of potato dish to accompany it. I saw this show and had my answer. These are so sweet and delicious, yet taste somewhat like french fries, but without much work! Will make again - and again.

For whatever reason, this did nothing for us. We haven't even convinced ourselves to eat the leftovers yet. We love pasta, love pepper, love cheese. This just wasn't "it".

Aug 2, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I really like Kelsey's shows, and am sorry I haven't seen any new shows lately. I wanted to like this recipe as much as I like Kelsey, but it didn't "do it" for us. We didn't hate it, we didn't love it. It was just somewhere in the middle. If I could give it 2 1/2 stars for average, I would. We have no plans to make it again, understanding th"

We found some catfish fillets on sale, and it was very shortly after I'd seen this episode. I've never made catfish, but have had it in restaurants and liked it. I soaked it all day in buttermilk (wanting to avoid any added salt. I added no salt to anything. We panfried it in vegetable oil, mostly because I didn't have much peanut oil. I frie"

May 20, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Loved it! This will become a part of our rotating recipes so that we do it occasionally. I made it basically as per the recipe, simply omitting any salt. For the herbs, I used mostly fresh parsley and some dried dill, even though I know fresh dill would've been better. We just didn't want to invest in both fresh herbs. I liked the dill flavor"

I saw the son of the one "contestant" on Worst Cooks in America just gobbling this down. So I had to try it. Well, now I know why he was gobbling it down! This is great! I've never successfully made pasta before (I have a hand-cranked pasta machine). Maybe Anne would not have been satisfied with my results, but we sure were! This is deliciou"

We thought this was very good. We very much enjoyed it. We added some mozzarella cheese just because we felt it needed some gooey cheese. Will make again."

Apr 4, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'll give this 5 stars for the taste, and that's having forgotten to add the worcestershire sauce. And that's after my wife had to make a special trip to the store to buy it! The taste is great. However, it totally fell apart. It stuck to the bread, and there was no way to slice it. I can't imagine worcestershire sauce would hold the meatloaf"

Mar 15, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really like hushpuppies. When I moved to the South, I learned that they go well with seafood and with bbq. I tried making them once before, and that recipe was a failure (or I did it wrong). This worked! I loved them. They weren't pretty (maybe the batter was the wrong consistency); the batter kind of fell off the spoon and some of them wer"

Absolutely delicious! I wondered about the combination of flavors. I thought I'd like it. I didn't know I'd LOVE it. Funny - I printed and kept out the recipe mostly to use some leftover cilantro. But this will go into our after-Thanksgiving recipe folder for a yearly use-up of turkey, too! We loved it. Yes, it takes some time, and a phone "

Tasty? I'd say incredible. We LOVED these. Yes, they require a fair amount of work and time, and yes, a lot of dishes were used in the preparation. I do find the first time I try something, it's more difficult than the next time. This was the first. But I'll gladly do it again!! I loved the addition of the corn! I was at a disadvantage bec"

I don't know what went wrong; I soaked the beans overnight (plus some). I cooked them at a simmer for several hours while I was preparing some other dishes. The beans just sat there and looked like black beans in water. After about 4 hours, they finally appeared to have more a paste-like consistency. So I put them in a pan with some butter and"

Gee, I hate to be negative, especially after reading all the positive reviews. This wasn't bad, but it didn't wow my wife or me. In fact, we ate it all, but threw the recipe away. It's not something I'd bother to do again. It just didn't have a lot of taste. I'll admit that I didn't include any salt (for medical reasons), but salt alone shoul"

At 10:00 PM, still not browned at all - mostly turned to liquid. I did use sweet onions. Next time, I'll leave the lid off. By 10:30, I gave up and cooled it and put it in the refrige...
