Feb 17, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Winner winner chicken dinner! Only thing I did different was the sweet chili sauce. I had from when I went to the Pepper Palace was the sweet n' sassy chili sauce! Nice quick hint of spice to it. I did also saut��� my mushrooms before the rice and added salt and pepper before cooking. Just a little zest of the lemon. Love the idea of shredded zucchini!...

Was not sure if I would like the ribs due to the dry rub(never was a fan of it) but Jamies recipes have always been a hit with all that I have made I decided to try it. This is now the only way I will eat BBQ ribs! Did not use the sauce because I already had PW's sauce already made. Great job and love the show! Down to earth! "

Nice! I get to be the 1st for your review! I loved it! I cooked the bacon in the oven to get it nice and crisp and only put a few sprinkles of bacon on top. I chopped up the rest of it and put it in a bowl. Reason for this is because it is for me and the bacon will get soggy by next day.If I were to take it to a party all of it would be on there! "

This is fantastic! I sadly overcooked the steak and it still tasted great. I did not change anything. I let mine marinate for 2 days and love the mustard flavor it brings and I am one that believes a steak should stand on its own but when I saw her cooking my favorite piece of rib eye I had to try it.

I tried these today and I liked them. I like strong flavors so the next time I make them I will add 1 tsp of the chili powder (maybe a little more) and some cayenne pepper for a little heat. For the glazing it took about 10 minutes but hey..all stoves are different. "
