Reviewed easy cranberry and apple cake

I'm sure this will be delicious as are all of Ina's recipes. I'm posting this to also complain about the updates to this website. I hate them! Very slow to access my recipe box or find a new recipe---if I do save one, I save it on Pinterest now. I emailed Food Network to let them know how I felt, but no response- interesting to see many others feel...

Outstanding! Crust is very easy and delicious. I used light cream cheese instead of mascarpone, because that's what I had on hand. Fresh chard from my garden. Will make this again and again--maybe add some bacon or sausage as others have suggested to make it a meal in itself. Thanks Anne!

Reviewed Chicken and Dumplings

Oct 31, 2013 on

I have always disliked dumplings-to me they were doughy, slimy and tasteless---but I tried these, as I have been married 40 years and never made chicken and dumplings for my hubby. Well- the dumplings were great--hubby loved them! I made my own chicken soup, and thickened it up. It's almost like Tyler's anyway. I used fresh chives and parsley from...

Wonderful! I have made this in dry and high Colorado and it turned out perfect as written. Now I am back in Michigan where it is humid and low elevation (humid even on a non-rainy day). I just needed to adjust my baking times and turn up the heat a little--225 worked fine. It's my daughter-in-law's favorite birthday dessert."

Excellent! I'll definitely make this dish again. I made it just as written, except I only had the Mexican type chorizo which worked just fine. At 8 minutes the whites were still a bit runny- probably because my baking dishes were a bit different , but just a couple more minutes did the trick. You absolutely must have some crusty bread with this , "

Absolutely delicious--the best mushroom soup I have ever eaten. I made it exactly by the recipe---very easy--- and served with crusty bread and some marinated red peppers. Will be making this again and again---Thanks, Anne!"

Outstanding! I cut the recipe in half.I used a buttercup squash and just baked it, then scooped out the puree. I also added some andouille type sausage in place of some of the smoked sausage for a little bite. I used a little less half and half than the recipe called for and it turned out great--will definitely make this again.""

I'm not a fan of pasta salad either, but this recipe is excellent. I don't like feta, so I cubed up some Havarti with dill instead, and it tasted great-especially since I didn't have quite as much fresh dill as the recipe called for. My husband is allergic to shrimp and crab, so the second time I made it, it tried it with surimi-and that was good "
