Reviewed Oven-Fried Chicken

Dec 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love Ina. I have made so many of her recipes, and they have all turned out perfectly. Many are now staples in my repertoire. I must say, however, that this one was strictly average. I followed the recipe exactly, yet the chicken was only so-so. It didn't crisp as much as it should have. I think maybe using even more oil, and initially fry...

Reviewed Rainbows and Butterflies Pasta Salad

This pasta salad was simple to make, and delicious! It is a perfect summer salad. It keeps well, tightly covered in the refrigerator, for 2-3 days. It is a healthy alternative to mayo-laced pasta salads, and I think it tastes better. I will make this again and again. Thanks, Ellie!""

What a wonderful recipe! I cannot believe what good, smoky flavor it creates. The pork was moist, tender, smoky, aromatic, and delicious. (Tip: Bullseye original BBQ sauce is the ultimate topping to make this perfect, and Wright's hickory liquid smoke is the best.) I did apply the rub (including the garlic powder the night before, put the mea"

Delicious salad, but I agree....way too much salt. Cut back on the salt, and it is perfect.

Love you, Ina! So many of your recipes are now a permanent part of my repertoire. I thank you, and boy, does my husband thank you! :)

Reviewed Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Jan 5, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these for the first time last weekend, and the only change I made was to substitute chocolate chips for the raisins. They were, by far, the best oatmeal cookies I have ever eaten. I put them in an air-tight container, and they stayed moist and delicious for four days. Just the right amount of cinnamon, just the right amount of crispness...

I tried this recipe, and the little potatoes turned out beautifully! (If yours didn't cook through, your potatoes were probably too large. I didn't have to cut any off the bottom....they stood up just fine as they were. The hot oven allowed for a crisp skin, but a very soft, moist potato inside. I loved the presentation...the little "cuts" are...
