Easiest way to temper chocolate I've ever seen. Never again will I risk the double boiler method!!!!

Excellent recipe and instructions although I have tried to make coconut flavored ones for a neice twice and both times it flopped. It got stringy and wouldn't whip up. My hubby says he won't buy marshmallows ever again.

Made this tonight, not impressed with the results. Seemed to take a lot longer to make than a batter or breaded fish stick. Won't bother with it again."

Used it on Atlantic salmon fillets. Excellent recipe, would be good on just about any meat, fish, or fowl!!!!"

Reviewed Ginger-Glazed Pearl Onions and Parsnips

Oct 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Nothing special, onions get overcooked if you put them in at the same time as the parsnips. I've never heard of removing the core of a parsnip before either. Too much work and waste of money to throw away a part that is perfectly fine to eat."

This is such a good soup, velvety, creamy, and thick. With just the right amount of zing from the fresh ginger and nutmeg. I had to sub some sour cream and a little light cream for the heavy cream as I don't routinely keep it in the house. Can't wait to have my hubby taste this!!!"

Jan 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The cheese didn't melt right just got grainy and clumpy. Didn't look anything like on the show. Flavor was however good. The only brats that we have around here got very tough on the grill. Mushrooms were just middle of the road not anything to rave about.""

Good recipe, only problem was that the thighs burned on the grill due to all the fat dripping. Next time I'll make sure that we watch them closer and turn them more often.""

Have used this recipe twice, last year (2010) it was perfect. This year for some reason the bird took 4 hours to cook although the birds were the same size. Other than that this recipe is excellent. I don't brine my bird as I have to buy a frozen one because I can't afford the pricey organic ones form the local organic store. I was told by the tu...

Mr. Brown has done it again!!!!! We couldn't wait two weeks to try it. We cut a piece the first night 'just to see if we like it'. It is delicious!!!!! We left one half to sit for the full two weeks but will be testing a small slice, from the other half, every day to see when it is best. Anyone that has trouble slicing it, try an electric knife.

I modified it as I was making it. I kept tasting it and adding in different things that I love. I added more honey rather than the Maple syrup it called for I like it very sweet, I also added sugar free chocolate, banana chips, dark karo syrup, I also added half a palm full of cinnamon and vanilla, and a pinch more brown sugar.
