Oh, I am making these tonight! Love the idea that you don't need the whole pepper, just pieces in it! And bite-size! Yum!!!!!!!!!!! Great idea, Trisha!!"

Reviewed Grilled Salmon with Smashed Cucumber-Date Salad

Jul 6, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Geoffrey, when I first saw this recipe, I thought, 'It's probably going to be overcooked.' Then I watched you and KNEW that is the exact way my husband and I like our salmon cooked! That is why we never order it out...they always overcook, and it is DRY! I am so eager to do your recipe! It looks and sounds perfect!! Thanks!!"

Meatballs were delicious! I will make these again! My husband couldn't stop eating them!

However, I had to print the recipe out and then digitally cut off the toothpicks, because I didn't like the idea of devil picks in my meatballs! Please use a picture that won't be so objectionable to some viewers!"

I am VERY excited to make this! We love fudgy brownie things at our house, and this fits the bill!
I did notice, however, on the show, Ree used 3 VERY heaping tablespoons of cocoa, and the recipe only states 2 heaping tablespoons. So, I'm going to be brave, and go for 3! "

I have written a review on this before, but for some reason, is not showing, so I want to write another review.

This recipe is fabulous! I have been making this for over a year, now, and make it at least once a month! I do it in my slow cooker, and use a can of chipotle sala instead of chipotle in adobo, and the spice is just right,...

I made these this morning, and both my husband and I loved them! They are not too sweet, which we liked! The topping reminds me of the topping Mom used on many things, when I was growing up, so these tasted like something I used to have in my childhood! "

I'm making this tonight! And, I learned something new...I didn't know pitas had a thicker side and a thinner side! Good to know! "

I love brining turkeys, and this is a good recipe!

Anne talks about using the "pope's nose" in the bottom of the turkey pan, and not throwing any turkey parts away. NO WAY, would I EVER throw away that piece! It's my favorite part of the turkey, and even a chicken. Great meat on that piece!""

The recipes sound great! I can't wait to try them! Nice to have a hometown guy with a show! I live in the capital city. Jeff's ideas should help us to think how we can turn leftovers into sandwiches. Using a pot roast was a great start! Do wish his show was on Saturday, or an evening, and not during church services, though. ""
