Love it! I used a 10" cast iron skillet and made the recipe slightly larger to accommodate my four hungry children. Nice and moist, great flavor!""

Reviewed Company Pot Roast

Feb 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was the first time I ever made a pot roast that included tomatoes; and it surpassed my expectations. All four children and my husband raved over it and requested seconds. I didn't use the brandy because I didn't have any, but it was delicious with a Cabernet.""

These are excellent. High-rising, moist, flavorful, and not too sweet. The kids requested they be a regular feature on the dinner table.""

Reviewed (Almost My Grandma's Rouladen

Nov 20, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My husband loved it, and so did the kids. The 6 and 4 year olds hummed while they ate it, scraped their bowls, and requested seconds. My 3 year old is still working his way through the first helping, but only because he can't eat as fast as his big sisters. :-D
The only thing I'd change would be to increase the amount of relish, but that's...

Reviewed Good Eats Roast Turkey

Nov 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I discovered this recipe right after Christmas last year and was so intrigued I made a turkey for New Year's. Everyone, including my 73 year old grandfather the turkey epicure, thought this was the most flavorful, tender, juicy bird they'd ever tasted. Not that I've ever cooked a dry bird, but this was so outstanding that it left even my previous...

I made these with 4 tablespoons of butter and substituted Greek yogurt and whole milk for the buttermilk. They were delicious and peeled apart in tender layers just like I wanted. This is definitely my new standard biscuit recipe. ""

Reviewed Creamy Red Pepper Soup

Oct 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I used a food processor rather than an immersion blender and it was perfectly creamy. Great blend of favors. Next time I might play around with some different seasonings but it's good just like this, too.""

Reviewed Easy Cheese Danish

Oct 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made my own pastry dough and followed the previous reviewer's recommendation of using 3 T ricotta and the zest of 1 lemon rather than two. Best Danish I ever had in my life. Easy and a huge hit with the family.""

Reviewed Potato-Bacon Torte

Oct 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I melted a couple of tablespoons of butter into some milk in place of the cream, and used sharp cheddar in place of the gruyere. This is one of the tastiest things I've ever had. I cooked for the slightly longer time other reviewers recommended and sliced the potatoes very, very thinly. FABULOUS. This will be a staple, and I'll never use another ...

This was fabulous: I'll be doubling it from now on. DH raved over it and the kids loved it, too. I used a fat dollop of sour cream in place of the cream and grated some gruyere cheese into it. Very rich and satisfying.""
