Reviewed easy caramel sauce

Feb 13, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is amazing and extremely easy and quick to make. . I followed the suggestion of some other reviewers adding a tablespoon of corn syrup. I will not be buying any more carmel sauce after trying this recipe. This tastes so much better and it is so inexpensive to make! Can't beat it.

Reviewed Pork Chops and Rice

Jul 15, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was very easy to make. It was also delicious. I added extra seasoning to my chops and let them marinate overnight. Like some of the other reviewers, I found that the rice was a bit under-cooked even after 45 minutes in the oven. Perhaps it's because I used Basmati rice instead of what Trisha recommended. Once I noticed that the r"

These veggies were terrific! My husband and I really enjoyed them. There was quite a bit of prep involved (chopping up the vegetables etc.) but well worth it. The vegetables went well with the pork chops. "

Apr 3, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This anise on the fish was so good and the mole sauce was excellent. I was surprised at the depth of flavor the mole sauce had with only 5 minutes of prep time. I substituted roasted sunflower seeds for the almonds (because it's what I had in the pantry). But the sauce really put the fish tacos over the top. I loved this recipe and would defin"

Reviewed Asparagus Bundles

Apr 1, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The asparagus bundles were excellent. I tried par-cooking the bacon as some suggested to cut down on the grease. Next time I make this I will have to cook the bacon a little less since they weren't easy to wrap around the asparagus once the bacon firmed up. I also over-cooked the butter/brown sugar mixture--mine was thick and syrupy. Even so,"

These muffins are excellent and very easy to prepare. I would add a bit more sugar to the batter but otherwise they are perfectly moist and freeze extremely well. The next time that I make them I will try different fruit. They are a keeper!"

This meal was excellent! The succotash and viniagrette were fabulous. I added an extra tbl of cranberry sauce with a 1/4 cup of water to replace the cranberry juice in the viniagrette since I didn't have any. I also used regular bacon and a little of the leftover bacon grease to saute the veggies for the succotash. It turned out perfectly. The"

This baked sweet potato was really good and very quick to make. The ricotta mixture was delicious! I added a pinch of brown sugar to the mixture. It addes a little bit of sweetness that complimented the potato nicely. I also used bacon instead of pancetta as it was what I had on hand. And I substituted arugula for the brocolli raab--again wha"

This crumble/cobbler was delicious. I added dried cherries to the filling instead of adding the cranberries to the topping. I also used Ina's instructions from her peach and berries crumble for making the topping with the mixer and paddle attachment. It made making the topping very easy.

This is excellent. The chicken is well-seasoned and juicy. I love the extra sauce....it makes for lots of dippin and is superb. I added a little flour and some light cream to thicken and make it a little more decandent. But it doesn't need it. I used spaghetti squash as a side this time. It would also be great over rice, mashed potatoes or "
