Reviewed Ultimate Shrimp and Grits

Feb 22, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this last weekend, and like most of the posts I read, I used the grits already in my pantry adding butter and cream. I really liked the recipe, but I would caution you on the purchase of andouille sausage. I purchased some that were NOT very spicy and had a very low fat content which I think detracted from the flavors. I will definitely try"

I've never done home-made Shrimp Scampi. I looked at several recipes before deciding to do this one. It's really simple and easy, and it tastes really good. I will definitely do this one again."

I loved everything about this recipe: crispy and the seasonings were perfect as stated in the recipe. Next time I will try the frozen, as another commenter suggested, just for comparison.""

You can't go wrong with this recipe. Took off a star only because my husband and son think it would have to be "spectacular" to get 5 stars. I loved it because it's so easy to make. I agree with the rest, I'll definitely keep this one.""

I'm sorry, but maybe there are people that like a lot of tomatos and those that do not. My family and I are the latter. I followed the recipe exactly but we just didn't like it. ""

So, I've never eaten artichoke except in a dip..but this was not good to me. I agree with the other comment about it being tough and having to throw most of it away. If you like lemons, then this might work.""

Best wings! I did last week and will ALWAYS use this recipe. I love Alton!""

Jan 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Cooked this recipe for dinner and it was really, really good. Definitely for someone that likes leafy greans, like collards. My husband said he preferred this over collards. I added portebello mushrooms from Rachel Rays' recipe. It added more texture and tasted great!""

Reviewed Vegetable Stir-Fry

Jan 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I loved this recipe. I cannot believe I've never done a stir-fry before. I followed suggestions about tofu and I forgot the bok choy, but anyone who's done this before knows you can use whatever veggies you like and it will still come out fine. Thanks for giving a novice an opportunity to do it right the first time.""

Delicious! This is a keeper. I was concerned about comments regarding the breading, but I did it any way without any problems. It added a crunch factor that cannot be beaten. I let the fish sit in the bread crumbs for a while and it was at room temperature, maybe that's what made the difference. I made a stir-fry and put it over rice. It was...

The BEST turkey ever! My youngest son doesn't like Thanksgiving meals, hates turkey...both my boys said it was the best they've ever eaten. Be sure to look at the video because the recipe leaves out the small but important details. Thank you , Alton!""

Reviewed Slow-Cooked Collard Greens

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

As a southerner, I was tired of all the work that goes into cooking collards the way my mother does, and I was reluctant to try this recipe because it is so different. I cooked them a day ahead and they were really good. I added a little more vinegar and sugar, then I added some red pepper flakes. Also I bought the prewashed, precut greens which "
