Delicious! I added cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of Grand Marnier to the mix. I also lightly toasted the bread before soaking in the egg mixture. I make a french toast casserole with a similar recipe and it is so good. Easy, tasty and not overly sweet!

I love the flavors in this pumpkin pie. Very complex and just what pumpkin pie should taste like. My problem is that I can't get the pie to set in the baking time noted in the recipe. I have both over and under baked it. Are the posted temperature and baking time correct?

This was such a refreshing salad and change of pace. I made it exactly as written the first time. Next time, i'll substitute the parsnips for butternut squash. The apple cider vinaigrette was divine---I doubled it and enjoyed it on salads for over a week. There's so much you can do with this basic recipe.

Reviewed Superb Squash Soup with the Best Parmesan Croutons

Nov 8, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I roasted the carrots and squash in a 375* oven for about 25 minutes, while the other veggies were saut���ing in the pot. I added the squash and carrots when done, with a touch of cinnamon for warmth. I think the roasting brought out the sweet, rich flavor of the squash and carrots. I added the mascarpone and syrup as written above at the end--and...

Spectacular! Followed the recipe exactly as written and it was delicious. Instead of bacon, next time i'll try toasted chopped walnuts or pecans. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

It needed something........ I followed the recipe exactly as written. The soup was merely okay--and it tasted like it needed something, but I wasn't sure what. I whisked in a 1/4 cup of good maple syrup which helped; I then added 4 oz of mascarpone cheese. Better, but still was missing a richness or fullness of flavor. I'm thinking it needs another...

This is the best salad dressing ever! So quick and easy and full of flavor. The champagne vinegar and the egg yolk make this dressing delicious so don't leave it out! this is my go to vinaigrette now, and it never disappoints. I highly recommend this recipe!"

This recipe was so so. The sauce was tasty but we were surprised at the lack of apple flavor. If I make this again, I would add cslvados brandy as another reviewer suggested. I would also cut down on the onion. The pork was very tender but the taste needed to have more oomph "

This was so good and so easy! I made one batch of the sauce and decided to experiment by adding the zest of an orange and the juice of half. It really seemed to brighten it up a bit. Definitely do NOT skip the cayenne. It really makes this dish! "

Nov 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My guests really enjoyed this salad. We tried to prep a few hours in advance; the salad greens did not remain crisp. We had to chop the apples right before serving, which was a pain.

Very good salad but one you have to put together right before you serve. To the reader questioning pomegranate molasses---yes, there really is...

This turkey was the star of the show. Insanely delicious! I used a freshly ground garlic pepper and kosher salt on the skin--the garlic kicked it up a notch. I don't make whole turkeys--just turkey breasts with the bones. Simply create a foil boat and put the onion, garlic and thyme in it, and just place the turkey on top of the foil boat. My...

Tried this yesterday along with the potato/celery root puree. All i can say is Wow. the potato/celery root mash perfectly complimented the short ribs--the celery root lightened the puree which went well with the heaver short ribs.

The ribs were so full of flavor i couldn't believe it. Anne is right when she says 'brown food...

My guests liked this one more than i did. i felt it needed more mushrooms--the recipe didn't say when to add the bacon back so i did at the end. Felt a bit heavy on the parsley flavor. The recipe says to take off the crust but he didn't on TV. He added carrots and celery and that wasn't listed in his recipe.

Too much lemon!! Made almost exactly as described but based on other reviews, i added a bit more garlic. The lemon was so overpowering it ruined the dish for me. Have to think about making this again--if i do, i will cut way way back on the lemon
