TDF!! I'm not easily impressed and have tried many Salisbury steak recipes. None even compare to this one. Fabulous.

They had no taste, certainly not champagne. The bake time was WAY off. I had to bake mine 25 minutes. Will not make again.

Apr 10, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

OMG! These are amazing. I LOVE that little kick of heat on the back of the palate. I made these for a work function and the CEO railed about how gingersnaps weren't supposed to be hot, bla, bla, bla. After about 15 minutes of listening to his opinions, I replied, "Then don't eat them!" These are perrrrfect just as they are. If you like them to really...

Easy is right! It's quick and tasty. I added some flavors like garlic, hot peppers, and onions to meet my taste needs. This freezes well. I will NEVER buy store-bought enchilada sauce again!

This is quick, easy, and delicious. I'm glad I found a true pilaf that doesn't have everything in the fridge thrown into it.

I took this to a Christmas party for my ladies group. One of the women in from El Salvador and could not stop raving about how authentic and delicious this is. This cake is now in my personal recipe box.

Reviewed Best Ever Coconut Cream Pie

Aug 11, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is THE best coconut pie recipe I've ever tasted...and I've tasted many. Most of the ones I've tried with coconut milk in them taste oily rather than more coconutty. This is the exception and will be my sole pie recipe from here on out."

This was quick and easy but absolutely flavorless. I will not make this again. There are much better recipes on this website."

It's an interesting way to prepare this simple pie. Too much butter, though. Otherwise, very good and easy.

I love Tyler and he rarely misses. This one, however, was blah. Not even interesting enough to make again. Sorry, but there you have it. Way too soupy and the pearl onions have got to go."

This was my first attempt at spoonbread. It was easy and delish. Some additional instructions would have been helpful, like what size dish to bake it in, how to incorporate the meal into the water to keep it from lumping...""

Tyler rarely misses but this was a big miss. Flavorless, and the bourbon adds nothing. The topping is equally uninspiring. Won't make again.""

OMG! This was easy, quick and delicious! I used half butter and half canola oil (because I watch my cholesterol. It was fantastic. I LOVE gooey chocolate anything. Alton has done it again."

Apr 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was easy to make and fairly quick--especially if you use premade marinara. It requires more sauce than the recipe calls for. I used 4 cups of sauce. Pair it with a nice salad and you've got a meal."

These were good not great. The cake flour tends to make this a softer end-product than I like. They were difficult to crisp on the outside. I'll stick to my old recipe.

This is easy to make and MUCH better than anything store-bought. However, the batter overflowed the 10" pan and the cooking time was off somewhat. The end product is good, not great.
