Replied to sausage, peppers and onions

May 30, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

The sausages are seared first, then set aside to rest while you cook the veggies. I chose to take the veggies out to better deglaze the smaller pan I was working with. Slice the rested sausages, add to the veggies already in the pan to impart amazing flavor to both. Seems there was some confusion on the process, so I hope that helped.

Delicious. Made it to recipe. Next time I'll back off in the basil by up to half. Otherwise fantastic. Use the marsala if you can. Adds a perfect sweetness.

This stuff is great. I'm not sure what changed from the last time I made this and rated it a year ago, but my opinion of it has gone up immensely. I would highly recommend putting all the ingredients in a food processor or blender to minimize clumps. Also fantastic with a blob of marshmallow fluff. "

This is literally the exact recipe I was looking for. Turned out great. They are not overly sweet, which I prefer. Thank you!!"

Fantastic. My steaks were sliced much more thinly than his, ended up well well to medium-well and were still great. Suggestions: use a different oil with a lower smoke point (canola worked great for me), and start the rack lower than you think you need to, especially if your steak isn't actually sliced a full inch thick. Other than that, broil aw...

Very tasty indeed. Only change was that i added 2 tsp Old Bay seasoning. And i think my ginormous lemon contributed to the fact that these tasted rather lemony. But they were really delicious with just a slice of tomato. Thanks Rachael! "

It's a good base. My husband and I enjoyed it for dinner, and will enjoy the leftovers. The veggie to meat to sauce ratios were spot on. However, by following the directions, the roux was too thin. I could have fixed that by either reducing the amount of liquid by about a cup, or simmering much longer. I'd...

For an microwave chocolate cake, it's good. Don't expect it to be the same as those little plastic bowls you can pay nearly $4 a pop for. Nice factoid: this is significantly cheaper. The texture is a bit like slightly rubbery pudding cake: very moist, surprisingly springy. The recipe lends itself easily to substitution (i.e. sweetener, less oil/oil...

The rolls themselves were wonderful. I didn't even put them in the fridge, just skipped straight to the hot proof and they turned out perfect. As a mom of a toddler and a newborn I can say this recipe is forgiving if you miss a step or take too long to do something.

I used a packet of Active Dry yeast and added it straight in without...

Another case of "I've never cooked greens before" and I loved them! It's a completely different method than others I've seen used, and I'm glad I tried this one first. This method makes them taste great!! The only things I did differently was use leftover bacon grease instead of frying fresh, subbed veggie stock b/c that's all I had, and threw in...

It's not bad, but it's not great. The only reason I gave this a 4 over a 3 is because both stages are easy to make. Maybe I just need better quality confectioner's sugar, but I unfortunately tasted that rather distinctly and it really distracted me from being able to enjoy this. The cocoa was great; I used Penzey's Dutch Cocoa, so no problems there....

Made these exactly per recipe. Great tasting waffle, not the texture I expected. My hubby doesn't like whole wheat at all and even commented several times on how good they tasted. They stuck to my iron terribly, and I sprayed that thing really well. They were a little chewy, which I attribute either to overmixing, the good amound of sugar in the mix,...
