Reviewed Carrot Pancakes with Cream Cheese Spread

Nov 5, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Good! Allergic to nuts so I Ieft out the pecans. The pancake recipe is the exact one I use for my own homemade pancakes so I knew the batter would be just how I like it. For the cream cheese, I added maple syrup to the cream cheese because I didn't have powdered sugar and the flavor was great. The only thing I did not enjoy was hand grating carrots...

@Lah143 I make lots of homemade soups and going low-salt will cost you in flavor when starting with so many fresh ingredients. Tomatoes and white rice are especially hungry for salt. You can still control the salt, but try adding an extra bay leaf or 2 - I usually find that 1 isn't enough when using dried. For such a large pot, I'd recommend a very...

Very enjoyable. Quick, easy, not an overwhelming amount of ingredients, inexpensive to make if you keep basics around the house. Also, easy to modify if you're missing an ingredient or two. The 1st time I made it, I didn't have any wine or worcestershire handy so I skipped the wine and added about a tablespoon of soy sauce to the beef instead of w"

Enjoyed this meal. Really easy to make. I didn't feel like spending the extra $ on a red bell pepper so I just used a whole green one, and all I had was smoked turkey sausage, but it was still a success. A perfectly adaptable meal if you have all of the base ingredients to make a basic trinity (onion, celery, bell pepper) I used a home made vegeta"

This recipe was just ok. Cream of chicken soup is one of those things that should never be used unless you're sure it won't make the meal taste like cafeteria food. I have a complete aversion to it but thought I'd give it a chance because it looked so good on TV. Its so much better to take the time to create a creamy base that doesn't have that fu"

Really good. This recipe is so versatile. I usually add some thinly sliced potatoes to make it a little more hearty. Tonight, I'm adding some fresh asparagus! Im never disappointed when I make an Emeril recipe! I have also varied the cheeses. The gruyere is great but really pricey. I've also used fontina which is always a treat, but tonight I'm go"

Brine vs Buttermilk:

I've always struggled with fried chicken. No more! This was fabulous and easy. I did a salt water/sugar brine on the chicken overnight. I separated half the chicken from the brine and did the last 6 hours in buttermilk just to test the theory that buttermilk is better. The chicken that was solely brined had...

This meal quickly became a staple in my kitchen. Its very quick, easy, and really flavorful! Even the kids in my family who claim not to like fish clean their plates and ask for seconds when I make this. The fish usually goes first, leaving some of the sausage and tomato mixture so I save it for the morning and have it with scrambled eggs. Its th...

I've been making this for several years and it is always always always a hit. As far as the eggplant you'd never know whether it was eggplant, zuchinni, or squash...the vegetable is just kind of there, but these are the best stuffed shells ever! The tomato basil cream sauce is over the top delicious! It can be used for any pasta dish you like. On "

i make this recipe for the fam all the time! They absolutely love it. Its quick and easy. It tastes exactly like the Olive Gardens Zuppa Toscana when you add Kale and cut back on the cream a bit. The Olv Gdn uses chevril which I love but can never find in my town so Kale is a really good sub because it flavors the broth so nicely w/o taking too long...

This recipe was just ok. Cream of chicken soup is one of those things that should never be used unless you're sure it won't make the meal taste like cafeteria food. For me, this is exactly how it tasted. The flavor and texture of the chicken was great, but I agree with most reviewers about the extra salt. Not necessary. I make turkey legs with a bit...
