Reviewed Scalloped Potato Gratin

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

This was a very easy recipe. I've made it several times and it comes out consistently delicious. Just make sure to cook long enough so that the potatoes are soft. It's important to cut the slices the same so they cook evenly.""

This was delicious. Since I didn't use prosciutto, I added a few tablespoons of butter before putting in the mushrooms. ""

This was divine. It seemed strange to me, though, that there was no cinnamon or nutmeg. But it didn't need it. It was perfect as is. Could not find brioche so used challah from Trader Joe's.""

Reviewed Chicken Burgers with Garlic-Rosemary Mayonnaise

These chicken burgers are juicy and loaded with flavor. Note that I cut the mayo by 50% and they are still great. Do NOT try to grill these. They are initially too soft/mushy.

I served it with rice, beans and guacamole."

Poor directions. It said to add a 28 can of diced tomatoes. Did not indicate if it should be drained. As a result I put the whole can in and felt the sauce was very watery. Not a great recipe.

There is a serious problem with this cookie recipe. I don't think that anybody has pointed this out. It's impossible to stop eating them, they are so friggin' delicious. I never thought an oatmeal cookie could be so yummy. Thank you, Barefoot Contessa. You are a genius.

After pouring in the pan sprinkled walnuts and chocolate chips, which I highly recommend. However, the recipe flopped. While it was delicious, it turned out all crumbly. The problem I think was the microwave. All microwaves are different. 2 minutes was too much in my case. I'm surprised Alton Brown chose to use a microwave. Sounds like something...
