Wonderful side dish! I love carrots, and love this new way to prepare them. I didn't use the nutmeg (because I forgot) but will next time. Also, I added a sprinkle of garlic powder and small amount of agave at the end for a little sweetness. A definite keeper- thanks Dancer!"

Love this yummy treat. Just right when you want a little something chocolate-y. I have made it several times now, and I actually like it better when I reduce the cocoa to one heaping tablespoon- seems a little bitter with 2. And I love to eat it piping hot!"

Made these today- they are SO good! Made exactly as written- used pecan cookie pieces (small chips) for the nuts. I have been wanting to try them for awhile, and glad I did! I love that they are not too sweet- perfectly savory/sweet. Will be making these again and again, for sure! Thanks truebrit!"

My new favorite breakfast casserole! So easy and very yummy. I used the packaged turkey sausage crumbles, which made it super fast to throw together. Perfect consistency- not too eggy, but also not too bread-y. I was looking for something to cook up on the weekend to take to work for breakfast, and this fit the bill perfectly. Haven't tried freez...

I was looking for a sauce recipe to make paneer tikka masala, and I used this recipe for it. It had a great flavor. I did not add the yogurt since I was not looking for a creamy sauce. Blended with my immersion blender before adding my browned paneer cubes and simmering. Will definitely make again- will try it with the chicken or maybe some shrim...

Easy, yummy meal! I omitted the mushrooms- family doesn't like them. Also was out of celery so I added chopped bell pepper. Will make sure I have celery next time- I know that will be great in it. I made gravy, but we liked it without the gravy- good thing I had also made some rice! Served with rice/gravy, cabbage and glazed carrots. Great easy m...

Sep 11, 2011 in on

What a yummy meal- we really enjoyed this recipe. The pork chops were perfectly cooked, and the potatoes were so delicious- 5 stars for flavor! However... as with pretty much all Paula Deen recipes, it will have to go in the occasional comfort food category. I wasn't crazy about the pools of grease on top of the potatoes from the pork chops. I'm ...

Aug 13, 2011 in on

We really enjoyed these. I didn't do the mustard and sugar for the beans- I seasoned the way I usually do for pork & beans, with garlic and sauteed onions. But I loved the idea of baking the beans on the hot dogs, and melting the cheese- will definitely make these again. Thanks, tamelawak!"

Wow, we really enjoyed these- they are yummy! But then, I would expect nothing else from a Kittencal recipe. ;) Thanks for yet another keeper, Kittencal!"

Jan 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I love butternut squash, so when I saw this on the show, I was excited to try it. It was great- love the combination of flavors. Made as written except cut the red pepper flakes by half. Bad idea- it didn't have any heat at all- next time will use the full amount. Also used dried coconut, which didn't really soften much when cooked. Really enjoyed...
