Reviewed Sausage and Herb Stuffing

Dec 2, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Everyone in my family really loved this stuffing. I think I want to bring it again next year. Because I was traveling and visiting someone else, I made it a day ahead. I prepared it as the recipe stated, including the sausage (I used spicy turkey sausage) and apples. I stored it in an airtight container and added the chicken stock right before...

Soo good and fun to eat. It reminded me of one of those old places where you drive in and the server delivers your food on roller skates. It seems like some towns still have that throw back 1950's joint somewhere in town, but it's nice to think you can make these old school hamburgers at home. My nine year old son loved these burgers and was a"

This desert was such a pleasant surprise. All we could say while eating was, "Wow, this is good." I had never had Sauternes before and I must say, eating this desert leaves you with a gentle buzz. It's a nice way to end a wonderful meal with good friends and family. "

My cupcake came out great and the cream cheese frosting was awesome! I made them at my daughter's request for her 5th birthday. Kids and adults alike seemed to enjoy them a lot, particularly the frosting. I omitted the raisins and nuts and I cut the cooking time down. Like so many others, I baked them at 400 for 10 min and turned down the ove"

This buttercream never thickened up. After 2 hours, I finally gave up and added powered sugar. I thought I would be one of the successful one, but I wasn't. I'm a pretty good home cook and often rely on Ina Garten recipes and am always successful. I keep reviewing the reviews, and was successful until everything was added and then no matter"

This was a wonderful recipe and it didn't disappoint. I'm happy to say it only took me about 2 hours to make instead of 3 hrs. I really like the fact that it only called for 2 Tbs of sour cream. So much of the flavor comes from simmering down the broth. People don't seem to make beef stroganoff anymore, but I'm helping to bring it back. It i"

This is the best fried chicken I have ever had. I will warn you that you have to plan ahead for this meal. The brine has to be made with time to cool (3 hours or more) and the chicken is put in the brine for up to 12 hours. It was a two day adventure for me, but certainly worth it. Enjoy."

Wow! NOT that great. I was surprised to find that it didn't suite my tastes, because I usually love all of Ina's apple deserts. As other cooks noted, way to much citrus and too much cinnamon and/or all spice. I would use only one orange and maybe 1/2 the spices. The good news is that you can put it in a dutch oven and let it cook in the oven "
