Reviewed blueberry crumb cake

Feb 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Love this crumb cake! Followed all instructions and, as suggested by a reviewer, I used a spring form pan - which gave it a beautiful presentation (snap closed with parchment paper in place, after cooled you can easily slide the cake off and onto a plate).

Sorry, worst recipe ever, nothing would have improved. Glad I didn't use all the cauliflower, ate the uncooked for dinner. I agree with previous Chef#1460641, I liked the old site better.

My husband enjoyed the dish but I thought it was okay - not bad, just okay. Agree with others to add more chicken stock (maybe 1/2 cup more). I also agree that it was bland. Will try another recipe for next time."

Just okay. First recipe from FN my husband wasn't crazy about. Like another reviewer, next time will use half of the salt. Also, way too lemony, and most people squeeze wedge over before first tasting. Next time I'll just use one tablespoon or less or just use the wedges for diner to squeeze over their portion. Nice presentation when last 2 mi"

Everyone enjoys this dish.. so easy, so good, nice presentation. Frankly, I stopped ordering Piccata out because it's either too tart and/or soggy, but Giada's recipe is the BEST I've ever eaten so I'll just have to enjoy this one at home."

Very good. I added onion. However, although liquid is necessary to cook the chicken properly, I too thought a bit watery upon serving. So, I followed as done by other reviewer by removing chicken & veggies then reduced sauce with pinch of corn starch. This way, the tasty sauce adhered. To the person that will try shrimp, maybe try with seafood sto"
