Reviewed rich chicken stock

9 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

Best chicken stock I have ever made! My dressing/stuffing and gravy were superb on Thanksgiving Day. I am making more this week and keeping it ready to go in the freezer.

Sep 10, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious. This blue cheese dressing. It was difficult not to sit down and just spoon it out of the bowl and eat it without the lettuce! The best. :)

I agree. Loved the recipe but it doesn't need the sugar.

This is delicious! Followed the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. :)

Reviewed oven-roasted cauliflower with garlic, olive oil and lemon juice

Jun 2, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious. Next time I will add the garlic a little later so it does not over brown. I did not have any problems with smoking oil. I will make this many times.

Reviewed rack of lamb with mint-basil pesto

Mar 2, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I love rack of lamb...and this is my favorite way of preparing it. I first made this recipe some time ago for New Year's Eve. I thought posted a review, but I guess not. It's perfect.

Reviewed roasted butternut squash soup and curry condiments

Feb 10, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I love butternut squash. McIntosh is my favorite apple and I like all of the ingredients and toppings that went with this soup. But I did NOT care for this soup. It's rare that that I dislike an "Ina" recipe

Even with using an excellent sharp cheddar, it just didn't do anything for me.

I'm speechless :)

Reviewed coconut macaroons

Feb 6, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

These are delicious. Yes, they ran slightly around the edges but its the condensed milk, not the egg whites. Who cares! These are the best I have ever had. Because I like almond flavoring I do 1/2 tsp. pure almond , 1/2 tsp. vanilla.

PERFECTLY COOKED BROWN RICE

Reviewed brownie tart

Jan 25, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Perfect and sinfully rich. Baked for the full 40 minutes. Try and use the best baking chocolate you can afford. It makes a huge difference. I noticed in a few of the other reviews that some used coffee "grounds" and did not like the brownies....that is because the recipe calls for "instant coffee".

I'm with you obnoxious chef. Why do people review a recipe they don't follow?

Replied to Good Eats Roast Turkey

Oct 19, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I have been brining and roasting turkeys for years, I had the same experience as you have. Tried it 2x just to make sure. Will not make again. On a positive note I love Alton Brown and love a lot of his other recipes...just not this one.

Reviewed Dry Rub Baby Back Ribs

Sep 19, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love dry rub ribs. I love this recipe. The grilling and or baking time is perfect. This is a recipe that gives you "tender" ribs, with lots of flavor. No, they don't fall off the bone they aren't supposed to! If I want falling apart I'll do a pork shoulder (butt)."

Typical grocery store deli macaroni salad. It wasn't bad...just nothing special."

Reviewed Foolproof Standing Rib Roast

Jan 4, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I followed the directions to the letter. While I will say that this is easy and the finished product was tasty and moist, it was more of a Medium to Medium Well roast. Most in our family prefers Medium rare-Medium. I WILL make this again, but will use an outside oven thermometer. I believe mine would have been perfect without turning the oven back"

I normally serve this with roast pork tenderloin or seared fresh ahi tuna. Delicious and quick. Thanks for sharing!"

Reviewed Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits

Jun 2, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Hands down, the best cheddar biscuits I have ever had! Guests loved them too. Should have doubled the recipe,they were disappointed that there weren't more. For those who thought they were too salty, the recipe states the extra "salting" is optional. "

Every year I try a new cranberry sauce recipe....in search for the "perfect" one. I can finally stop searching. This is it! Not one bit left over, everyone loved it. I figured why wait until Thanksgiving or Christmas to have this! Would be great throughout the year....mmmm.. like on roast chicken sandwiches, or..=)
