Reviewed Game Time Chili Dogs

Aug 8, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I only made the chili part of this recipe but the store didn't have jalapeno or ground chicken (live in Hawaii) so the jalapeno was excluded and used extra lean ground beef and put the cooked meat in a colander for 20 mins. to strain out the oil. Wow, that was spicy!! I couldn't eat it and my husband is a big chili fan and only ate one serving ov"

Mar 21, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

The flavor was good enough but it was the texture that I didn't like. I think it was the yogurt that left a powdery coating in my mouth. I also prefer a thicker smoothie. My husband thought I had snuck some vegetable in it and also didn't like it. Sorry, Bobby!"

Mar 10, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

Easy recipe to make. On the sweet, gooey, messy-eating type of ribs. Think saving 1/3rd of sauce for service time is sufficient. I didn't see Tyler make this recipe on TV but what does "Heat a 2-count of oil..." mean?--what's "2-count". I like Tyler's cooking so I made it anyways. With 2 cups ketchup and 1 cup of peach perserves is like candy ribs"

Ina doesn't need any rave reviews on this recipe but thought I'd put in my 2 cents for all the times I've made Food Network recipes and not submitted a review. I probably make 50-60 new recipes a month from a variety of sources. I'm not a huge fish fan but eat it because it's good for me and my husband loves fish. This recipe was super simple and "

Mar 7, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I had about 4 cups of broccoli so I cut them into smaller pieces. I did a stir-fry in my wok and to cook the broccoli al dente, I covered it for about a minute at the end. It was perfect. I have 24 other broccoli recipes we've liked but always want to try new recipes. This was super easy and so tasty!!

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

After reading the reviews, I was determined I was going to make this work for a little leftover vanilla ice cream I had and I wanted to serve it to my 8 guests as a mini-teaser right after dinner and before the 3 other desserts were presented after playing board games. My friends class me as a gourmet cook and I also worked with many chefs and lea"

Reviewed Stout Coffee Cake with Pecan and Caraway Streusel

Jul 19, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I guess I put too much faith in evieroux's review (Eileen)because I made this cake tonight because I like to cook items with a different twist too and having stout beer in a coffee cake was pretty unusual. I am an avid baker but I was disappointed. Because you had a disclaimer on the recipe, I assume the recipe was never tested. My husband who lov"

Michael Symon makes everything he makes so easy and so delectable. He has such passion and fun with his dishes. I made this but never ate it myself as I gave it to my daughter & her fiance. He does have a very large range of food preferences but when he ate this, he said "It is one of the best chicken recipes I've ever eaten. It's definitely way u"

Reviewed Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

Apr 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I agree with many of the other 5 star comments -- these are very good! I weighed the dough so each cookie was 1 1/2 oz. which makes them very uniform. Baked only 12 mins. and that was sufficient. This is not one of those limpy oatmeal cookies but crispy and crunchy. I am going to mail them to a friend and because of their sturdiness, hopefully,the"

Reviewed Fresh Fruit Coffeecake

Jan 31, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

Easy to make. Very light and not very sweet. Recipe called for whole berries but didn't state what kind so I added blackberries, blueberries & strawberries. Didn't like blackberries because of seeds. I normally like not-so-sweet cakes but this needed more so I added a glaze. LOVED looking at what Macrina Bakery had to offer and wished there were ...

Good recipe but it isn't clearly stated. Recipe calls for 1 cup dashi but instructions only show adding "half of the dashi". What happened to the other 1/2 cup?"
