As close to easy and perfect as can be. These are delicious. And so convenient. I top mine with a bit of parm mid-baking for a little crusty goodness."

Super duper fabulous! I have never seen anything that turns a batter in a cast iron skillet into something kind of like shortbead. Great presentation and flavor. "

I love Trish, but gosh golly, this is a disappointment of a recipe. First, there isn't really anything creative about putting some tater tots in the bottom of a bowl and piling other fat-laden foods on top. There isn't anything in this bowl that ties it all together. Some sauce? SOMETHING? And then you don't melt the cheese on top. It's just"

I think that Alton has fixed the problem with the Union Station Bar Nuts recipe. It never worked for me - to just toss hot nuts into a bowl of sugar and spices. It always clumped together. With alton melting the butter and adding the spice and sugar to a HOT PAN - well, that makes infinitely more sense. I will adapt this recipe and the Union...

Well I don't know what i'm doing wrong - I've made this three times and each time it comes out goopy and more like caramel-coated nuts. It just doesn't coat the nuts well.""

If I could give this FORTY stars I would! This is simply one of the best chicken dishes I've ever made. I made it exactly to the recipe. Everyone - I mean EVERYONE at the table said it was absolutely delicious. Not very difficult to make either. I will make this VERY often!""

Really quite good. I added a bit of cooked pancetta to my filling for flavor.""

Dec 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really don't get what people saw in this. The cake is EXTREMELY dry for a gingerbread, and the volume of spices for this volume of batter is seriously lacking. The spiced need to be doubled at least for this size of cake, and I would add some applesauce or oil to prevent it from being so dry. There are far better recipes out there for ginger...

This is simple luxury at it's best. I love the flavor, and it's good as is, but I prefer to add a small amount (1/4 c.) of heavy cream to this and let it cook for a short time before serving it - it gives a great mouth feel.

Reviewed Fleur de Sel Caramels

Jan 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Love them! I made these as Christmas presents for some friends, and they LOVED them. However, I do NOT place the salt on top, but rather add extra INTO the caramel. In my opinion, salt flakes on the top are a bit abrasive.

Easy recipe. When I make it I add a small amount of salt because otherwise it's rather bland. I'm not sure how this is "Alex's" recipe because it's fairly common.
