Reviewed Neely's BBQ Sauce

Sep 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

BBQ sauce is a very personal thing. For example, chubby hubbie is from KC - I'm from StL. I was hoping this would be a happy middle ground between his mustardy, tart taste and my sweet inclinations. Also, no. He deemed it too vinegar-y and I have to agree. "

This is a great recipe when you're feeding a crowd. The last time I made it, it was for my husband's office. The bowl came back with gnaw marks on the side. I used low sodium soy sauce and still needed to cut back on the salt (but I'm usually feeding a bunch of middle aged hypertensive men!)."

When my son first transitioned to big people food, this was his favorite. So much so that we planted basil in our backyard so we could make the pesto. This recipe is not only tastey but it feeds a crowd."

The funniest thing was my dad kind of busted my chops for serving chicken stew when they were coming over for dinner. Well, he had to take back every snarky remark after he ate it. It is fabulous."

She had me at bacon! I have made this several times, always as written and it has plenty of flavor for the motley crew that I serve. Good autumn, winter lunch."

The highest compliment from my Dad, "This is just like your Grandma used to make". Great, homey comfort dessert. What I like about Ina's recipes is that they are so simple and unpretentious yet so delicious. "

I've made this a few times - once for my friend when she became a US citizen. It is always a huge hit. It looks way more complicated than it is to put together."

This is not only an easy recipe but people will think you are a culinary genius. Turns up the volume on an ordinary fruit salad."

Awesome dinner on those cool autumn nights. Very quick to get together for a weeknight. I firmly believe that marscapone cheese is the key to achieving world peace!"

Hands down - my husband's favorite. He loves pumpkin and usually wants pumpkin pie for his birthday. I make the recipe as written (but have been known to include a few extra toffee chips!). Very tastey!"

Reviewed Tres Leches Cake

I've made this several times now - as written each and every time. You definitely want to take your time when pouring the liquid over the cake at the end. Go slow so every piece soaks up some of that deliciousness. Even my uber-picky 6 year-old requests this cake. Outstanding! I serve it with berries and nectarines."

Reviewed Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze

Sep 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Just made this. I usually hate when people go modifying recipes for no good reason BUT...the next time, I will add more apples. Also, it lacked some umph in the flavor dept. Maybe it was my expectations. Next time, I'll probably put the spices I would put into an apple pie. Don't get me wrong, it was good - just didn't wow me like some of Eme"
