I loved the sauce and am sure to use it with other proteins and veggies in the future. Easy and fast prep which I love.

Reviewed the ultimate barbecued chicken

Jun 8, 2014 on

I wanted to try this because usually my chicken comes out a little dry. Well I followed the directions exactly. The brine surely made a huge difference in the tenderness and moisture this chicken has. Someone asked why not leave it on the grill instead of putting it in the oven. I'm no expert I believe that last few minutes in the over ensure that...

Reviewed fried fish with smashed chips

Jun 1, 2014 on

I followed the directions to the T. I used an Urban Wheat Beer for this recipe and let it set for 2 hours. The batter came out fine and seemed to thicken from sitting in the fridge. The fish was light and crispy and surprisingly not greasy as I was afraid of. The one only thing I would do is perhaps add a bit of seasoning (of your choice) to the batter...

I followed the directions exactly and sadly was not happy with the end product. I love Ina and have tried many of her recipes and loved them all. The brussel sprouts however were a bit of a disappointment. they tasted like they were a bit burnt. I did cut them in half so the texture was not the real problem it was the burnt taste that I didn't car"

I loved this coleslaw. I'm very fussy about coleslaw if it's not made right (as I've experienced so many times in restaurants) I just won't eat it. This one is definitely a keeper and I can't wait to show it off to friends and family. Thanks for an easy and delicious recipe. "

Jan 11, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was an easy and quick way to make a nice healthy and tasty winter soup. I used ground nutmeg because I didn't have fresh and unlike some of the previous reviews it did nothing to adversely effect the flavor. Since I don't diet I used half and half instead of the evaporated milk. It was great. Gonna fill a container and take some over to my d"

Tasty doesn't begin to describe the flavor of these beans. The best I've ever had. I'm hooked for life. Thanks Ree for a great way to get a meal that makes you smile. I'll be making the cornbread tonight but I cheated and had a small bowl of the beans because they were so DELICIOUS."

Reviewed Smothered Pork Chops

Nov 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Well like some of the other reviewers I wanted to do something with my pork chops besides simply frying them. So I came to Big Daddy. First of all the spice mixture was so good I made a second batch and stored it for future use...just because I knew it would be good on other cuts of meat. When i seared the chops the smell was unbelievable. The har"

Reviewed Honey-Butter Baked Chicken with Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Dec 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Okay I'll admit that sometimes when checking out a recipe for the first time I don't always follow the exact directions. So when I read that we should place the chicken on top of the sweet potatoes and then pour the juice over the meal I hesitated. However I threw caution to the wind and did exactly as told. DELICIOUS! I kept thinking if I hadn't...

I made this delicious dish last night and the flavors were absolutely outstanding. (not to mention the aroma while it was cooking). I could hardly wait for the finished product. I am not new to short ribs but this is by far at the top of my list. I am making a recipe journal for my daughter and daughter-in-law for Christmas and be sure this will...
