Reviewed smothered pork chops

Sep 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Agree with other reviewers - half as much flour is plenty. Made modifications based on other reviews: saut�ed mushrooms & onions before cooking chops & set them aside to add to the sauce at the end. My chops were larger than the recipe so cooking time was longer. Used way less cayenne - only about 1/4 tsp. Sauce is outstanding! Used lowfat...

Unbelievably AWESOME!!!! Made a tiny change - slightly (and I mean slightly less ginger - maybe 2 and 1/2 TBS instead of three. Otherwise, made it as written and cooked until the top was GB&D (golden brown and delicious for those who don't regularly watch Alton). Had with ice cream.
My favorite peach dish used to be cobbler - not anymore...

This is surprising rich for a low cal dish. Made it pretty much according to the recipe with the following changes: 1/2 C cream & 1 C 1% milk for a total of 11/2 Cups; (you may want to add a bit more cream cheese than the recipe call for if you increase the liquid); steamed broccoli & sauteed 3-4 cut up chicken tenders and added to the sauce....

I used fresh fettucine which only comes in a 9oz package so we had plenty of sauce. The sauce seemed thin to me,...

Reviewed Alton Brown's Buffalo Wings

Dec 30, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

WOW!! What a great recipe. First time making wings at home and did not want fried wings. These were fabulous. My husband and our neighbot raved about them. Made 16 for the 3 of us - wecould have easily eaten 16 each. I used Tabasco Buffalo Sauce - it was very good, but could have been hotter. Might try adding some regular Tabasco or some habenero"

Reviewed Potted Pork Tenderloin with Sweet Onions and Apple

Nov 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Wow - what a disappointment! I expected to really like this based on ingredients and reviews. Didn't hate it, but won't make it again. It was wrong in so many ways. Let's start with preparation: onions browned almost immediately even though I had them on the lowest heat (gas range had to add apple juice to keep them from burning.
The flavor...

Agree with other reviewers - more chipotle. I'd reduce the lime juice - it wasn't too limey, but it didn't need as much lime as it had; almost overpowered the flavor of the meat.
Marinated mine for about 8 hours which was plenty - I think longer would have made for too much lime flavor and might have made the meat mushy.
