How can you be a Tikka Masala snob about a dish that';s considered peasant food? This recipe is a good one, though - we';ve made it several times over the years."

I thought one cup of sugar was way too much - I made it a second time and used half a cup of sugar - it was much better but when all is said and done, my family prefers cold potato salad."

I';ve been making this for years. Good basic recipe for plain chicken. Unless you want over one hundred percent of your daily recommendation of salt, skip it and salt your meat at the table."

This was just okay. The addition of stuffed green olives is beyond me and doesn';t contribute anything to the dish except a salty, sour flavor. Next time I will leave it out."

I made this for our family picnic yesterday. Too greasy and spicy - I was actually embarrassed to serve it to my family."

These were just okay, kind of bland. I think the author meant to say that this is an ADAPTED recipe, not an "ADOPTED" recipe. LOL!"

This was one of the first recipes I ever made as a young adult. I was 17 years old and still in high school. Today, I am 60 years old and still make this coffee cake for my four granddaughters. It is one of their favorites, too!"

Tasted ok, but one serving contains over half of your RDA of sodium. Not worth it."

I agree, Willow Brook. I find that a lot of Ree's recipes are simply others' dishes that are tweaked and then called her own.

I agree, brenro12. I never considered Ree Drummond on a par as the Food Network chefs, anyway.

Oct 24, 2013 in on Food.com

I made these as a dry run before serving them at Thanksgiving. Ham and pickle are too salty served together. Another reviewer said to use hard salami, although once it comes to room temperature, the salami become greasy and unappetizing."

Replied to Parmesan Creamed Spinach

Oct 24, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I gave this a dry run before planning on serving it at Thanksgiving. Pumpkin pie spice gave it an odd taste. I should have known better, as most of Sandra Lee's recipes are mediocre.

I wanted to try this recipe anyway, despite the rather low reviews. While I enjoy most of her recipes, this one is not a keeper. I won't be making this again."

A lot of ingredients and time-intensive for a so-so dish."

A waste of time and money."

Sep 10, 2013 in on Food.com

These were so awful that my husband threw them away. He couldn';t believe that I would make a recipe using two cups of Cremora. I am diabetic but I did try a bit of it anyway, and he was right - they were pretty bad and left a film in your mouth."

This recipe was just okay. For once I';d like to see a recipe that isn';t described as "amazing" or "awesome" when it';s not."

Wow - almost 100% of your RDA for saturated fat in just ONE serving?! My sister had made this recipe and said she got it off of food.com. When I looked it up here and saw the dietary facts, I about gagged!"

The carrots gave the rice a strange, sweet flavor. My family didn';t care for this."

Apr 3, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was just "okay". Some of the recipes were a stretch, like the pork shoulder shepherd's pie. I didn't see any exciting new ideas here, though. Just standard fare."

Reviewed Chicken-Macaroni Casserole

Jan 29, 2013 in on Food.com

Because I considered this a "basic" recipe that could be modified depending on your taste, I added a dash of curry powder and some leftover chopped boiled carrots for color and flavor. I also was out of macaroni, so I substituted flour tortillas, rolled and sliced to make "noodles". In this way, I was able to use up my leftovers, and the casser...

I made these before noticing that the can of frosting contained a large amount of trans fats, which clog your arteries and never leave the body. I only gave these three stars because it tasted okay, but I'd never make it again because it's really bad for you, especially little children."

I also make these every year - however, after about an hour sitting in the crockpot, the sauce starts to become dark and dry and begins to smell sour and strong."

My Japanese mother would serve us hot rice mixed with a raw egg for breakfast. The scrambled egg "cooks" in the hot rice. She would sprinkle a little soy sauce over each serving. I am 60 years old, and to this day, this dish is still my "go-to" comfort food! My adult children and grandchildren love this dish, too!"
