easy and delicious, but cooking time is off. These were turning black on the bottoms at 30 minutes. I think 18 to 20 minutes is plenty of time to puff and crisp up the pastry and soften the apples. Anything more than that and it is burnt. I served mine with creme fraiche and caramel sauce. yum.

This is really simple and delicious. I have made a variation of it as well. I used the zest of a clementine and the juice as well in place of the lemon. It was just as good!

I really like this recipe. I almost doubled the recipe except the sugar. I thought it turned out perfect this way. I grilled mine on the BBQ grill. They got a nice smoky flavor from that. The chicken and rice took on a completely different flavor with the grilled swiss chard than it was on it's own. I think the filling could easily be used in...

these are just like the edamame I order at my sushi restaurant. I hadn't ever tried with dill before. Quite tasty.

I thought this was a good recipe. My family thought there was a little too much vinegar in the dressing. I think next time I would reduce the vinegar in half. But other than that, I loved how quick and easy this was to make. I have made it with lean ground beef before in a pinch when I didn't have a steak on hand and it was even good that way."

this was SOOOOO good. I left out the orange zest, because I was doing it from memory and forgot it. I also didn't remove the bacon and potatoes, I just left them in the pan and added everything to them and let everything get kind of crispy. You don't need to add salt to this recipe, the salami added enough salt. Great recipe. Thanks Giada!"

These were wonderful. I mixed whole eggs into the batter rather than whipping the whites and folding them in. I was short on time. But they still turned out wonderful. I love the almond flour in it and the protein that it adds to these waffles. My kids weren't crazy about the honey syrup and ate strawberry jam on them instead. I thought the"

very good carrot cake. It has a unique texture. Moist in the middle and there is kind of a sugary crispy crust on the outside of this cake. My family loved it!"

these were so good. I liked the fresh taste the lime gave the shredded beef. I added a little chopped baby spinach to make it even healthier. The shredded beef reminded me of an appetizer we had at a resort when visiting Mexico last winter."

Reviewed Blue Corn Pancakes with Orange Honey Butter and Cinnamon Maple Syrup

Apr 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I found blue corn flour in the hispanic foods section of my grocery store. It was called "Harina de atole" and in english underneath that it said blue corn flour. I didn't have time to warm the maple syrup with the cinnamon sticks so I just threw a dash of cinnamon right into the batter. I thought they were good and a fun and interesting change"

are you kidding???? this cake is greasy and crumbly. It completely fell apart when I tried to get it out of the pans and then fell apart even more when I tried to move them from the cooling racks to a plate. It had that metallic aftertaste from too much baking soda. I will NEVER make this cake again! There has to be a better one out there. "
