Reviewed grilled halibut sandwiches with chorizo mayo

Feb 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Food Network should really consider allowing people to add a comment without rating the recipe. Now Guy's recipe is rated 1 star because the only comment about his recipe has nothing to do with his recipe! Sissy rated it one star because she can't navigate your website, not because she's actually made Guy's recipe. Hopefully, my five star rating will...

Replied to Spring Celebration Carrot Cake

So, you gave the recipe only 2 stars because YOU messed up and used garlic flavored oil?? Wow, I don't understand people who constantly review recipes here, mess them up royally, and then give it a bad review. Why does FN allow this?

Replied to Chocolate Fudge Cake

Jan 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

There's your problem bfitz - the cake recipe doesn't call for powdered sugar. The frosting yes, the cake no. You stated you like the frosting, which uses powdered sugar, but that "the cake tastes sugary." Apparently, you didn't follow the recipe as written b/c it doesn't call for powdered sugar in the cake portion. So, either you are implying that...

Jan 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is a very tasty chili, but it's HOT! I'm not going to slam Sunny, though, because I knew what was going into it and I wanted to try it. I did have to make one change based on ingredient availability - I had to use hot Italian turkey sausage b/c my market didn't have chorizo - and I intentionally reduced the cinnamon by half b/c I'm not a huge...

Dec 27, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

These were delicious, and I'm constantly surprised that FN will post reviews that give poor ratings when the reviewer did not use the correct ingredients. The recipe should not get a poor review because the person didn't follow it properly, or used the wrong ingredient. This makes no sense to me. Yet, when I've posted a review, and made changes to...

Reviewed The Lady and Son's Smoked Boston Butt Roast

Aug 7, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I was looking forward to trying this recipe, but I didn't think it had much flavor honestly. The only thing I did differently was use a smaller roast and scaled down the proportions slightly because there are only 2 of us to feed. I absolutely love a good pork roast, but this was nothing special. A little BBQ sauce made it much more palatable t"

Reviewed Sweet Skillet Cornbread

Jun 30, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a good recipe, however I would like just a touch more sweetness. The result is a moist, slightly sweet cornbread that does not need butter. The only change I made was using light sour cream as that is what I had on hand, and I probably would not have noticed the difference with regular, and I didn't have honey so I used agave (could that"

Reviewed Campfire Beans

Jun 30, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love Ree's show, truly. However, these beans were bland. I am really not sure what the other reviewers find so tasty about this recipe. It lacks something, and I don't think 1 1/2 tsp of salt is enough, and even with more they still lack flavor. I ended up adding a packet of Sazon tropical seasoning, more salt, and some cooked chicken breast."

Oct 16, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I'm curious, why are reviews posted by people who haven't actually tried the recipe? Just because a chef puts their spin on something doesn't give a reviewer the right to criticize it for not being "authentic", especially if they haven't tried it.
Never on this episode did Kelsie say HER versions were exact replicas of the original. I do...

May 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this tonight, but I didn't have any cilantro or jalapeno, so I left them out. That being said, it still lacks flavor for me. The dressing is decent, but I prefer a touch more sweetness to my slaw. I did follow some other reviews though and adjusted the amounts. I used a bag of prepared coleslaw mix, 1/2 c. each mayo and milk, and kept t"

May 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this today and I thought it was pretty tasty. I can see why some people commented on reviewers that might not necessarily cook that much and why they thought this was the best they ever had.
I think this would turn out bland if you don't season the roast liberally with salt and pepper; however, I planned ahead and made sure that I...

May 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very good and very easy to make. I loved it, and I'm not a huge blackberry fan. At first I thought it was going to be too sweet with all the sugar on top; however, it was perfect! I will definitely be making this again, and next time I might try another fruit (I love peach and cherry cobblers the most).
Thanks for the easy recipe...
