When the recipe calls for a large stock pot, they ain't kidding. You need an 8 quart pot for this recipe as it is written, I used my 6 qt Le Crueset and it was waay too small, I had to ladle out a couple of cups and that was using only 8 cups of chicken stock, not the full 12.

Having said that, very yummy. I added the bacon directly...

Excellent recipe! There's a Mexican food place in Las Cruces that does wonderful fish tacos, they include a very similar salad and I've been wanting to duplicate it for a long time. This one comes darn close. We had a fried chicken night at my wife's observatory three weeks ago and I elected to bring three salads: this one, Anne Burrell's German...

KILLER recipe! Not too difficult a recipe, tastes fantastic. I've made it twice, once for a fried chicken evening at my wife's observatory, then again at my parent's house a week ago, and there were no survivors, err, leftovers. It's definitely going in to my arsenal of recipes. I might try adding some mustard next time, that seems to be a common...

Made this soup Thursday night and the flavor was quite good, but I'm knocking the recipe down one level because it says 'six potatoes', not X lbs of potatoes. I bought six, and there was no way they'd fit in my 6 quart Le Cruset. I took the excess and made mashed potatoes, so that's OK, I would have preferred to have an exact amount.

Sadly I';m disappointed. My cookies ran horribly and turned in to lace cookies. After the first batch I added 3/4 of a cup of oats in to the remaining mix which seemed to thicken it, but they still ran. It';s possible that this is a side effect of living at high altitude, we';re at 9,000';. I';ll continue working on the re...

Very good, insanely easy to make. I am of the 'sweet' cornbread preference, so I'll be messing the the recipe a bit the next time that I make it.""

Jan 1, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

All respect to Paula, but I made two alterations that make it absolutely incredible. First, a tablespoon of bacon fat for browning the meat. Second, I use a whole box of low-sodium beef broth rather than the 2 cups of water. Also I don't add sugar. We like it more liquid, so we don't do the corn starch thickener. But it gave me a great base ...
