This was a delightful surprise and a nice way to use lemon balm growing in my garden!"

Reviewed Smoked Vegetables

Jul 28, 2014 in on

I agree with the other poster that all you taste is smoke. The peppers were awful. The squash was okay but you definitely couldn';t eat very much. The potatoes didn';t cook all the way through - probably need more liquid. I';ve seen other recipes that smoke the veggies for a short period and then finish them by grilling. I';ll pro...

My husband who doesn';t normally like creme brulee loves this one because it doesn';t taste overly eggy. This is my go-to creme brulee recipe."

These did not turn out great for me. It only made enough for 2 standard pans. They were rather dense and not very flavorful. I';d recommend increasing the spices and possibly sugar depending on the sweetness of your bananas. Baking powder, like someone else mentioned, is probably necessary to improve the density."

I made a vanilla version to see how the base recipe tasted. I tripled the recipe as 8 oz of yogurt isn';t a whole lot and used 2 tablespoons of vanilla and 3/4 cup sugar. It turned out great and I';ll be trying pureed fruits and other yummy additives like peanut butter, Nutella, and espresso in the future."

Reviewed Cream Pasta Sauce With Zucchini

Jul 11, 2013 in on

The flavor on this was pretty bland. I added salt, pepper, parmesan, romano, and a little cayenne to give the sauce a little more flavor. I may need to add more garlic next time because the garlic flavor was not very prevalent. Also, the zucchini can add water to your sauce as it cooks and make the sauce runnier. A added 2 extra tablespoons of fl...

Another amazing Alton Brown recipe! I used instant yeast instead of active dry and they still turned out amazing. I also made pretzel buns out of half the dough. This is definitely a keeper. "

These were awesome! I've made bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers with just cream cheese/cheddar and those are pretty good. This filling had superior flavor and makes it really easy to fill the jalapenos since everything is mixed together. I made a bunch and froze the extras. Upon cooking the frozen ones, the results were still excellent."

This was awesome! I didn't used sliced provolone, just a mixture of shredded Italian cheese. This was crunchy just like thin crust pizza and definitely a simpler way to get the similar taste."

These tasted great! Mine turned out a bit flat, but I think that may have been from using convection bake."

This was pretty good but not very flavorful after a 24 hour marinade. Traditional souvlaki has red wine so I think I'll try adding that instead of Worcestershire next time."

This was really good! Although, the top and bottom layers were a bit crunchy, which I didn't like. Next time I may try putting a little sauce before the first layer of noodles and covering it for part of the cook time."
