Reviewed Garlic Bread
"The only change I made (besides leaving off the parsley because I didn't have any) was to roast 2 whole bulbs-not cloves, BULBS- of garlic (chop off the top of the bulb, cover it with olive oil,wrap it in time foil and roast in the oven for 45 minutes at 375 degrees). Just squeeze the bulbs into the softened butter and follow the recipe. Best garlic bread ever!
Reviewed Savory Italian Beef Stew
""Would it be too much work to brown the meat and give it some nice flavor before the 8-10 hour braise?" If you're trying to get ready for work and the kids off to school? Yes, probably. Browning would probably be a good idea if you had the time but I've read a lot of slow cooker recipes and have never seen one that suggested browning the meat first because it kind of defeats the idea of a busy parent being able to serve their family a home cooked meal without having to keep the kids up past their bedtimes in order to enjoy it.
"Good but the first attempt turned out a little dry- I've never done chicken skewers before so it may be my fault but I don't think I overcooked it either. The herb sauce was fantastic.
"Good but the pancakes were not as lemony as I expected. The lemon curd helped make up for that to be certain, but I don't know that it wouldn't have worked just as well on regular pancakes with less work.
Reviewed Maple Sugar Sweet Potato Fries
"First let me say that if you're criticizing the typos in the recipe I don't think it's fair to give the recipe a 1 or 2 star review because it's not the fault of the chef. Better to address those issues by an e-mail to Food Network.
Second, this was fantastic. Like others, I had to use brown sugar although next time (and there will definitely be a next time) I plan on using maple SYRUP instead. To save calories, I baked instead of deep fried (25 to 30 minutes at 400 degrees turning halfway). Some of the excess brown sugar that came off the fries did burn but was easily removed.
"Very tasty. The recipe could easily serve 8 to 12 people as an appetizer & takes a while to make so you might want to make the puree a few hours ahead of time so you just have to assemble the medallions before guests arrive.
Reviewed Apple, Pear and Walnut Salad
"Very tasty. Listen to the advice of others & be sure not to leave out the salt & pepper. Be aware this makes a huge amount of salad so cut the recipe in half if you're cooking for 3 or less.
