Reviewed Broiled, Butterflied Chicken

Oct 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Wow, such quick and juicy chicken! I agree with the reviewer before, as I always watch the episode before I make the recipe. I probably cooked about 18-20 minutes first before flipping, then needed about 20 minutes on the other side. Either way, chicken delicious and jus was very easy to make. Thanks AB!""

Reviewed Pressure Cooker Chicken Broth

Oct 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My first time using a pressure cooker and first time making homemade broth was a success. I never have time for the 3-4 hours that normal broth making takes, so this was perfect. In my 6 qt cooker I got about 4 quarts finished broth. Using a fat separator is much easier than skimming the broth. No more store-bought broth for me. Thanks AB!""

A delicious and easy recipe! I re-watched the episode before and used his techniques for weighing, rolling, boiling, and baking the dough. They turned out beautifully brown and very tasty. I only had kosher salt, so I'll buy pretzel salt for the next time to be exactly like his. Thanks AB!""

This is a great formula that I use every morning for my breakfast, thanks to Alton Brown. I use any combination of 8 oz of liquids (milk, juices, yogurt, etc) and 16 oz of frozen fruit. A kitchen scale with a tare function makes this a snap, even in my sleepy daze first thing in the morning!"

Such a delicious and easy recipe! I've used it with cod and salmon and both are great. I line my baking dish with parchment or foil to ensure a quick cleanup. I'll always keep miso on hand for a quick marinade or glaze from now on. Thanks AB!"

Reviewed Dashi

Jan 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Followed the instructions exactly, including using my probe thermometer to make sure I had the temperatures correctly. Made a fabulous base for AB's Miso Soup. Fortunately my local Japanese market is very reasonably priced, so I have a pantry stocked full of kombu and bonito flakes now for whenever I want Dashi. Next time I'll make a double batch...

Reviewed Angel Food Cake

Jan 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I make this at least once a month and it is my signature cake. It is so delicious and easy, I get rave reviews every time! Best angel food cake hands down. (I only wish that AB would update the older recipes with the weight measurements because it's easier to weigh out since I'm not typically a baker.)

Reviewed Miso Soup

Jan 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I always rewatch the Good Eats episodes before I make a recipe, and I followed every step and it turned out delicious -- tasted exactly like the miso soup you get in a Japanese restaurant and so much better than any packaged type I've tried. So healthy and the ingredients were a bargain at my local japanese market (which I'll be visiting frequently...

Reviewed Ginger Snaps

Jan 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These cookies are incredible. I brought these once to my office and my coworkers ask me to bring these in all the time. now I love ginger and these really are authentic ginger snaps. The weight measurements and a disher make these cookies perfect every time. The only change is I add a little freshly grated nutmeg to my dough. Thanks AB!
