May 20, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

FABULOUS! Just had company over and we finished eating these ribs and I got rave reviews on them. First time I made them and I will be making them again. The flavor is so good and not the same ole BBQ sauce ribs. Easy to make and I followed the recipe to the T, usually don't do that. High temp works fine and then putting under the broiler afterwards...

Not what I thought, but still good. I was thinking these would be a substitute for bread to make a wonderful turkey sandwich. However, they are very heavy and don't hold together well, or at least mine didn't. So on a plate with turkey and hot gravy, better choice.

Simple and tasty! Love this soup. Made it for the first time to deliver for a friend going through cancer treatments. It sounded simple and healthy and thought it would be the perfect comfort food for her. I had to try it before I delivered it and it's a keeper. Such a wonderful flavor."

Great taste! BEWARE, read all the way down before you start as I didn't and you have 30 mins. wait time for the cakes to be in the fridge before you cook them. I used cod (that's what I had) and it worked fine. I would use a little more of the Panko in the mix as the cakes didn't stay together very well. Let's just say, they weren't pretty like th"

Only in TV land does this recipe take 30 mins. prep time!!! Not even close for me. I purchased the smallest brisket I could find, nearly 8 lbs., and it was trimmed really well. In spite of that, I still had to trim more fat off and then spend the time cutting it up. I did decide to double the recipe and freeze the extra chili for colder days. Now "

I used this recipe to make grilled cod and it was a WINNER! The sauce was so fresh tasting and I was thrilled to use basil from my garden. My husband raved about it.

Flavor galore! I actually made this recipe exactly like Paula said and it was very tasty. Everyone loved it. Couldn't find the Greek seasoning, so got a recipe off the internet to make it. Never been a fan of bean salad, but the different flavors in this makes me a fan now. I found the spices to ingredients to oil to be a perfect balance.""

WOW...the house smell so YUMMY while this is cooking! Great tasting recipe and very easy. Much better than doing the roast in the crock pot, meat isn't stringy & dry. Even though it's not supposed to get dry in the crock pot mine always has. After cooking there really isn't much juice for gravy, so I added another cup of the beef stock and pur...

I love that people do reviews, it really helps out. This was so easy, I didn't have heavy cream, so I used whipping cream (I read that you could sub it). I also sauteed chicken and garlic to add to the flavor. Put some frozen broccoli in the last few mins. while the pasta was cooking. The garlic was needed for some flavor, so even if you don'...

After reading some of the reviews, I did cut down on the salt & oil. I didn't have the walnut oil so I used olive oil, also an onion instead of the shallot. I chopped the garlic & 1/4 onion very small and actually sautee'd them and added Italian seasoning & parsley. It was pretty tasty and I will make it again. Better than when I grilled eggpl...

Very tasty, a hit with my husband! For some reason I bought turkey bacon, so that's what I used and it was still good and not as much fat. This is a keeper. It is easy and quick. I used short wooden skewers and put two on per skewer and it worked great. You really have to keep a close eye on the as another reviewer said due to the bacon. "

Last time I made a garlic hummus, the garlic was overpowering. I love garlic, but it was over the top. So, the only change I made to this recipe is to roast the garlic w/skin on in a dry pan over medium heat until soft. Perfect balance. This recipe is quick, easy and tasty."

First, I would consider this more of a soup than stew. It's not a gravy like stew. The chard is somewhat overpowering for those that might not be used to chard and I would try fresh spinach next time. The flavors were good and it smelled so wonderful cooking, but would also add a little more of the pepper flakes. I cooked this on low for the seven...

Very fresh tasting and easy to make. I think I didn't get the chayote thin enough with my food processor, maybe need to use a mandolyn which I don't have. I had never tried Chayote before and it's so fresh, more like an apple than a squash. Try it, you'll be surprised. I didn't have any radishes, so just used avocado & chayote.

Easy enough and tasty. However, the grease really smells up the kitchen, smells like you fried fish. I used crushed chex cereal instead of the Panko and worked great. They fry up quickly so be prepared to stay right near the pan. Wondering if you could do them in a high degree oven? Might try that next time instead of the smelly frying.
