Reviewed beef short ribs

Oct 16, 2014 on

I disagree with the majority of the other comments. I made this dish according to the recipe and it turned out poorly. Short ribs need much longer to cook then just 2 hours. I ended up having to simmer the meat in the pot on low for 5 hours. Short ribs are very fatty and the dish was oily and not very flavorful. I love Ina's dishes, but this one falls...

This is a nice change of pace from all the butter recipes that we all normally cook. I like the vegan aspect of these cookies were highlighted in Giada's Halloween episode. I bought 1 can of 15oz. canned pumpkin puree and was able to make this recipe like 3 or 4 times. I go a little lighter on the oats and raisins so I have a looser batter. But, o"

I agree with a past critque that less is more when it comes to this recipe. A little less cranberries is good makes it perfect. I used 1 bag of Fisher's macadamia nuts.

Sorry but the cheese in this recipe should be re-thought. It is to oily when it melts into the gratin. While I do think turnips as a gratin dish is a good idea the cheese made it taste bad. Plus, it is very expensive. I didn't like this dish, but I'll try turnips again some other day."

I think the prosciutto is very salty so don't add salt to the lemon-basil pesto. Make sure the bucther cuts your prosciutto thick and the 6 slices go a long way. My husband and I used this as a main entree and really liked it. But, I agree with the other comment about cooking the zucchini longer. I had a big one and cut it into chucks but it cooke"

Reviewed Soft Shell Crab Sandwich

Jul 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

My husband cooked this for dinner. We live in Ohio and only get soft shell crab on occasion when it is in season. The liquid is to much and can be cut in half. So half the beer, half the milk and only 1 or 2 eggs. Use a beer you like to drink and then you'll know that you will like it in your dish. We used Great Lakes Lake Erie Monster. It is a In"
