I followed the recipe, albeit without actually measuring anything.

I also used a potato masher. It could have been smoother, and maybe I'll hit the leftovers with an immersion blender. But like Ina said, some texture is nice for this dish.

I especially like the subtle sweet, savory and salty parts of the flavor....

I followed the pancake recipe as faithfully as possible, and it was just as described.

We have a surplus of plums just now, because our tree ripens all at once. A simple plum syrup went beautifully with these pancakes."

I've been making Irish Soda bread for quite a long time but couldn't find my tired and true recipe. What to do? Food Network, of course. I divided the dough into two smaller loaves and baked them for 40 minutes before testing them. They were just about perfect, but if you try this, make . sure you test the loaves before removing them from the ov...

We just cooked a butcher's brisket Alton's way. It was delicious! But potatoes don't take 30 minutes to cook, so we had mushy potatoes. The other vegetables were perfect.

Next year I'll do the whole thing - I've never corned a beef, but since Alton says I can, I will!""

Excellent and easy.

Best to serve soon after making. The parsnips thicken up as they cool.""

I used extra sharp cheddar, and this was nearly perfect: just the right creaminess, just the right cheesiness, and a nice crisp top.

There was a bit too much onion taste, and my wife didn't like the crunchiness of the onion bits. Next time I'll be careful not to use too much onion, and try to dice it a little more finely, and add...

Reviewed Bacon and Brussels Sprout Hash

Nov 21, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I guess I actually made the earlier version of this, with thickly sliced sprouts rather than halved. I'd say mine came out looking better than the picture here - less gloppy, with the components distinct and clear.

I'd decided to make Chicken Cordon Blue, and had Brussels sprouts and potatoes to go along. I found Tyler's recipe...

I made this with some excellent farmers market chicken breasts. Fantastic!

I'll remember putting butter and garlic in the panko. Great technique tip!
