Reviewed blueberry buckle

5 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

I always thought Buckle was more like pie with topping. My husband and I agreed, we'd call this Blueberry Coffee Cake. I used organic all-purpose flour, measured, not weighed. It took about 15-20 minutes longer to cook in the center, in a 7x9 ceramic dish. I have a discerning palate, and could hardly taste the ginger or nutmeg they are so subtle,...

WOW! This was SO delicious I could eat it once a week. I didn't have green olives so I used Alessi Green Olive Pate that I had in the pantry. I spread about 1 T on the side of each filet. Next time, I will strip the thyme and not cook the stems which just ended up in the way. The paste, EVOO, lemon juice, and moisture from the fish made the MOST...

Good, but far from great. Probably won't make it again.

Bake 40 minutes? Holy Mackeral...I burnt the cookies! On the first leg of the baking process, I set my timer and left the room (shame on me, I know better). These would probably have been ready in half the time. When I think about it, who bakes cookies for 40 minutes at 350? I should have known. I even went out and bought an oven thermomete"

Delish! First time EVER using kale. I bought it and didn't know what to do with it. Glad I found this recipe. I didn't have pancetta (as we're cutting out nearly all animal fat these days), nor cabbage. I used a 16 oz can of beans, dumped in the entire 16 oz bag of pre-cut, cleaned Kale I bought at Publix (great time saver, and only used a 1...

Worst shrimp dish I've ever cooked that wasn't my fault (aside for not recognizing it when reading the recipe. My husband and adult kids agreed. Love Ina, her recipes are some of my favorites. I should have seen this coming...I cut the butter in HALF and it still was just a bunch of doughy-butter balls dolloped over the shrimp. Advice to you....
