Reviewed The Ultimate Beef Stew

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

This was a disappointment. The wine was too acidic for me. Adding a tablespoon of sugar helped but it still had a acidic taste. The vegetables being added in the last 30 minutes was not enough time for them to cook. After 30 minutes, my veggies were still raw. Tyler's Ultimate recipes are usually fantastic. This one just did not work for me....

This recipe was very easy and the roasted shrimp had a wonderful taste. However, the sauce had too much of an orange flavor for me. I followed the recipe exactly and the orange taste overpowered all of the other flavors in the sauce. I probably will not make this recipe again."

Quick, easy and very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I would change is that I will cut up the shrimp after they are cooked and then put them back in the linguine. A great quick lunch or dinner. You need to make this one if you like shrimp. "

This made a fanstastic dinner. Everyone loved this meal and it was very easy. The taste of the quesadillas was the same as if you were in a Mexican restaurant. It did take about a half hour to make which is a little longer than the recipe said it would take to make. I followed the recipe exactly except that I went ahead and cut the chicken int"

These cookies were awful. They were not tasty. They were dry and several of the cookies burned. I am glad this recipe worked for everyone else but for me it was terrible. Ann's recipes are usually great but this one was not. I am putting this recipe in the trash."

Giada did it again. This is pie/brownie is fantastic. You cannot beat this recipe. It is easy and has a great fudge taste. Chocolate lovers will need to make this pie. It was eaten as soon as I brought it into the office and several people wanted the recipe. However, I would use more cookies for the crust. the 5.5 ounces of biscotti cookie ...

Reviewed Chocolate Chiffon Pie

The gingersnap cookie crust does not go with the chocolate chiffon filling. It does not taste good together. However, the chocolate chiffon is wonderful and this pie would be great if you use a regular pie crust or put the filling in pudding dishes all by itself. I will make this again but not with the gingersnap crust. ""

These granola bars are fantastic. They are chewy, moist and have a great taste. The receipe is very easy to make and I followed it exactly. I cooked them as directed but the bars were not real formed. I think they need to cook a little more than 15 minutes. Otherwise, this is a winner and I will keep making these granola bars. They can not b...

Reviewed Chocolate Cookie Crust Banana Cream Pie

Mar 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a great recipe. It was very tasty, light and not too sweet. The only problem was wit the crust. The taste was great but by chopping the coolies coarsely the crust did not stay together. It came out in pieces. Next time I will finely chop the cookies for the crust and add a little more butter. This way the crust hopefully will come out...

Reviewed Rum Raisin Truffles

Dec 9, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is easy and they taste great. I do not have food scale and the first part of the truffle recipe did not harden as they were suppose to. Even though the truffles came out messy, they are worth it and I will make these again. I beleive there was too much rum. Everyone loved these. I used Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips from the grocery...
