Sep 30, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is so delectable it's gotten to the point that when our friend gives us fresh caught tuna we don't want to do anything else with it other than this recipe. We used to do 2 oz fish per person, now we know to do at least 8 oz because it's kind of like potato chips in that you just don't want to stop eating it. The only change I make is to add"

This is the best cranberry sauce I've ever had by far. We generally try to change things up each holiday season: different recipes for turkey, stuffing, potatoes, salad, etc., but in five years I've never searched for another recipe for cranberry sauce because this one is so good. For those saying it was too tart, remember that cranberries vary "

I can't imagine a pulled pork sandwich being better than this. Maybe one exists somewhere but I have no desire to try and find it because this one is utter perfection. The only change I make is with the BBQ sauce. As advertised, it truly is a cider vinegar/mustard sauce. I add 3 to 4 times more ketchup than the recipe calls for to make it more l"

This was fabulous. The chicken seasoning was delicious and all the flavors in the rice were especially wonderful. I didn't want to use bouillon so I substituted chicken stock for water in the rice.

Nigella, you're a genius. I've tried to perfect the yolk-done-yet-still-golden hard boiled egg for years. I always ended up with the powdery center or it still oozing (which is great for a sunny side up but not what you want in a hard boiled egg). Your method worked to perfection. I'll never boil my eggs another way again. Obviously, my revie"

I never order Fettuccine Alfredo out because it's always way too heavy and rich. The lemon in this recipe changed all that. It gives it a freshness and lightness that you wouldn't normally associate with Fettuccine Alfredo. Don't get me wrong, there's still plenty of cream and butter but the lemon just makes it. Some people said the sauce was t"

For those wondering about the basil: I just watched the episode and there is no basil anywhere in this recipe. There must have been a disconnect somewhere between the chef and the people who type up the recipes for the website. Do the recipe as printed here and you won't be disappointed. ""

I've made the Thanksgiving turkey every year for the last 15 years and it's always moist and delicious.
