Fluffy, moist, sweet, a little sour, easy to make...very good.

Oh, wow... This is the best barbecue chicken I have had in a long time. And the sauce could make a stick of wood taste good. This is definitely going to become a family dinner staple."

Tastes excellent and is super easy!! Also excellent with roasted shrimp. I don't use mint or Thai basil, but it doesn't make any difference to our taste buds. Thanks, Giada."

This recipe was almost a disaster. I had read the previous reviews of people stating that the mascarpone mixture had curdled up on them. Same thing happened to me!! I used a stand mixer with whip attachment instead of hand mixer. Since I figured it was already ruined, I thought I might try adding some heavy cream. I didn't measure or anything; I "

Delicious and easy recipe. I left out the raisins and it was still very good. Icing was the perfect amount for the cake and it was a good balance of sweet and cheesy. Make sure you use fresh pineapple. Canned would not be nearly as good."

Very good comfort food. I would have preferred it to be a little more soupy, but, nonetheless, it was delicious. I did not blanch the carrots. Instead, I added them in with the onions. Also, I couldn't find frozen pearl onions, so I increased the amount of fresh chopped onions. I, personally, would recommend making extra biscuits because we couldn"

This recipe is the best I have tried yet for cobbler. The trick of letting the butter melt in the casserole dish before adding everything is ingenious!! This is the only recipe I've tried that turns out good and cooks through all the way as a thick cobbler. I made this with cherries and it was just as delicious."

This recipe is amazingly delicious and simple! I recently made Ina's Turkey Lasagna and fell in love with the sauce. I wanted the same flavor for regular meat sauce for spaghetti. I found this and tweaked it a little to make it thick enough to add meat. I added a can of tomato paste before I deglazed the pan and a little more salt and pepper. Also"

Jul 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is definitely delicious, but I had to give it only four stars for a couple of reasons. First off, it was way too salty. I will definitely not add as much salt as was recommended in the recipe. Second, this recipe was not good as leftovers. No mater how I heated it up, (pan, microwave, oven, it was not good. The garlic develops a bitter"

This recipe was perfect for a first-time lasagna. The flavor was amazing and it was so easy to make. My hubby loved it! I couldn't find goat cheese so I replaced it with half a package of cream cheese. Thanks again, Ina, for a wonderful dish."

I use my husband to judge all my recipes and this was a slam-dunk for him. It was super easy to make and the flavor was way up there. It did not take as long to bake as other recipes I have seen. Next time, however, I will add less cumin and more honey to the glaze. Definitely an easy, pantry-staple type of recipe."

I made this salad for a football party and it was a great hit! Everyone was asking for the recipe and all wanted to know what the herb was. Rosemary? Thyme? The dill is great!! It gives it that special kick that homestyle potato salad just doesn't have. I've made it again since then and only added half of the dressing. It was a bit less slop...

I have made this recipe several times for parties (my own and others'). Everybody has always loved this recipe. I have learned, after all those times, not to add the entire dressing mixture. It can turn out too oily. I definitely have learned that the feta needs to be cut. The crumbled feta went all over the place and made the salad too batt...

Cupcakes were great! Made them for my mom for her Halloween birthday. She loved them and so did my husband. I tried Paula Deen's recipe before, but the cakes were too oily. These are much better. I did heed the warnings of the prior reviews and checked the cupcakes after 15 minutes of baking. I ended up with a baking time of 20 minutes. Al...
