Reviewed Cinnamon Muffins

1 day ago in null on Food.com

These muffins are not overly sweet. I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and that produced mildly sweet muffins. The spice flavor is also mild. So, don';t be afraid of using the allspice which I think is an unusual ingredient in a muffin. I have a suggestion and that is to make a cinnamon butter to "frost" the muffins when they are still warm. I just...

I enjoyed this recipe. It was very easy to prepare. I was surprised by the addition of chicken broth. I think it gave the "prepared sauce" more of a home made flavor. The recipe makes a big dish of food so it';s great for feeding a crowd. I used ground sirloin instead of hamburger and added a little olive oil to cook the sirloin and the o...

Excellent and Easy
I followed the directions exactly. Although it takes a while to cook, you can be busy doing lots of other things at home while this is cooking. I did refrigerate it overnight after it was done. This allows the fat to separate. It makes it easy to get rid of the grease that you don't want to eat anyway. I will never buy...

I made the recipe as directed and thought it turned out great. It presents very well. However, I think I would make this differently next time. I think I would prefer to eliminate most of the bacon fat by cooking the bacon separately as another reviewer suggested. The brown sugar butter sauce is delicious. I think I would use it to baste the aspar"

I have to agree with many others that the chicken was a little bland. I did not like that it was a little mushy so I baked it a little longer. It did get crispier. The flavor was mild. And the chicken was very tender. I think it would have been better with a sauce to dip the chicken in. It probably would have been good to make extra marinade, and"

Reviewed Creamy Vinaigrette

Jan 1, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I agree with many others that the ratios are off. There is too much oil and not enough of everything else. I too added more dijon mustard, more honey, and even more vinegar. I will refrigerate this overnight and serve it tomorrow with sugar glazed pecans over romaine shreds. I will also add a little garlic. This really is not her best recipe. B"

I am more accustomed to the barbecue rib recipes that use a sweeter, and a heavier tomato base. Having said that, I think this recipe is very good. It has a lighter flavor, and is simple to prepare. I appreciate that the ingredients are pretty much what you usually would have on hand. In addition, if you're trying to cut down on the amount of sug"

This salad is outstanding. It is definitely the best salad that I have ever made. The croutons were the perfect use for my day old French bread. I had most of the other ingredients on hand - especially a tasty, ripe red tomato from the local farmers' market. It was simple to make, looked beautiful in the platter, and is also very healthy. I woul...

Reviewed Rustic Vegetable and Polenta Soup

Aug 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The soup was very easy to make and did not require any special ingredients. It was delicious, satisfying, and healthy. I have never thickened a soup with polenta before and think the texture it creates is very nice. I also like that the recipe does not use milk or cream. I think this is a great alternative to creamy soups. I tasted the soup be...
