Reviewed slow cooker banana upside down cake

Oct 11, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Followed recipe exactly. Cake cooked faster than expected so bananas hadn't quite caramelized enough. Inverted the cake and placed under the broiler for 5 minutes. Bananas are an interesting dessert -- I had lots of them and wanted to try something different. If you love bananas, give this easy recipe a try.

Oct 11, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Have made this soup many times. The multi-step soup prep is well worth it. I often use skinless, boneless chicken breasts and/or thighs and can skip the skim-the-fat stage. Have seen a few comments about rice and salt. Definitely adjust for type of salt and use less to start, making adjustments as you'd like. Not all rice is the same -- suggest,...

Decent recipe - I like the combination of flavors and I often like unusual twists on recipes - but don't ignore the suggestions from other reviewers on this one. Namely, cut down on the sweetness (less honey, and/or less brown sugar). If you like a thicker chili, substitute crushed for diced tomatoes, or add tomato paste or a thickener (I added...

How did I miss this wonderful version of chicken soup?! In addition to the suggestions from others, I added peas -- tastes like a chicken pot pie without the pie! "

Have made this soup several times, with variation of spices, with and without turkey sausage -- each time I am amazed at how simple and delicious it is. Love that unlike other beans, lentils don't need soaking overnight. Easy to make with canned fire roasted tomatoes. I always double the veggies, and follow the advice of others by taking out a cu"

Easy, easy, easy. Wonderful flavor! Made a few changes...a little less oil, more chicken stock extra carrots and extra canned tomatoes. "

Reviewed Peach Cobbler

Aug 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this cobbler often - it is easy to make, easy to adapt, and hard to make a mistake. Do pour the peaches and liquid slowly so it rests on top of the batter. I don't use self-rising flour, so I adapt. Lemon zest, nutmeg, vanilla -- all can be added, as you please. This is a keeper of a recipe!"

Reviewed Sourdough Strata With Tomatoes and Greens

Dec 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Family review: husband and I love it just the way it is (but don't omit the roasted tomatoes). I knew other family members would expect more "stuff" in a one-dish breakfast, so I set up a "stratta bar" and had crumbled spicy sausage, bacon bits, extra cheese, tomatoes, etc. That satisfied a house full of guests, who could make their breakfast mo...
