Apr 14, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Okay, the kugel is very good, although possibly a bit bland for some tastes. I'm going to add a bit of orange zest on top when I serve it. The recipe doesn't call for salt, but I'd advise putting in half a teaspoon to liven up the flavors. I doubled the recipe which might have some culpability in the blandness. Great recipe though!

Unbelievable. I doubled the recipe and it came out flawless. Delicious. I always try to find if there's a Bobby Flay version of a recipe I'm seeking. I don't think I've ever been disappointed or found that one of his recipes was transcribed wrong. This recipe is simple and the result at my dinner party was a period of silence as everyone stuffed their...

This is for Emeril's Crunchy Slaw. I had to add a bit more diluted mayonnaise to cut the heat. I didn't have Chili Paste so I used some Thai Chili Sauce that had sesame oil in it. Wow, four alarm slaw! Adding some more mayo really balanced everything out. The roasted peanuts and shredded spinach really makes this special. Now the heat is sub"

Apr 19, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The chicken stock was a five, but suffered a bit from the denseness of the matzoh balls. Dill in a matzoh ball is an acquired taste, and especially if you have some octogenarians at your Passover table. Good thing I avoided the chili. No joke on keeping them cooking for 1hr. 20 mins. The denseness of the mix keeps the heat from reaching the center,...

This is the fourth year I've made this brisket. It's hands down the best brisket I've ever made. Every Passover I proudly proclaim 'this is Emeril Lagasse's Passover Brisket', which makes a few jaws drop, and mouths drool. I make sure that I squirrel some away for the days following the holiday. "

One of the best recipes published on this site. My recommendation? Follow the friggin' recipe to the letter. I did, and it turned out great. Two days later, I put a couple of slices in a pan with a little olive oil and egg whites. Giving the leftover slices a bit of a crisp on the outside works great. The stuffing does not overpower the loin....

The combination of the sliced pickles, onions and mustard with horseradish gives this burger a really unique, almost acidic taste that marries perfectly with the meat. My only suggestion would be to add more horseradish to the mustard, as the stuff we get out here on the west coast is kinda mild. Would love to know where to get four-alarm horseradish...

Good but not great. I added some Tabasco - it really needs it and a bit of Kosher Salt. It tends to be bland. I thought it unusual that the recipe didn't call for any seasonings at all. Not sure if a lot of these recipes are vetted.

Bland. That pretty much describes this dish. The flavors of orange are pretty much non-existent even when doubling up on the orange in the dish and amount squeezed over chicken. I think the problem is that the chicken itself is under-seasoned, thereby rendering the pan drippings also under seasoned. Next time I would add some chili flakes, freshly...
