Reviewed Hot Tamales

Mar 14, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

As others have written, this was a lot of work but mostly in the assembly. I probably used less than half of the package of husks. I was concerned that the meat filling would be too spicy, but the outer corn breading neutralizes the heat. These are very different than the tamales in a jar my mom loved."

Reviewed Egg Drop Soup

This was way too salty for the broth I used (Better Than Bouillon) so I would skip the addition of the salt. I also used two eggs based on some comments for this recipe and think that only one egg would have been sufficient."

The chicken and soup portion was very good but I didn't care too much for the dumplings."

Reviewed Black Bean And Corn Salad

Sep 6, 2011 in on

I agree with the comment regarding there too many beans. I would substitute more corn as my 8 3/4 oz can didn't seem to be enough corn for the amount of beans. I also used some cilantro. The brown sugar was an interesting addition."

Reviewed the best southern pecan pie

I think this recipe needs to be doubled to make two pies. I used 2 8 inch regular pie crusts and neither one was more than half full. The filling tasted fine but was not particularly remarkable."
