Dec 7, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This is a good recipe, but unless you really like it hot, it has to be toned down. I doubled the recipe, so I used 1/2 cup hot sauce and 3/4 cup ranch dressing. It was still spicy, but not hot.

AMAZING!!! My immersion blender wasn't working very well and I didn't want to mess with the heavy duty equipment, so I just blended until it was about 1/2 pureed. And I really like to have some vegetables in the soup anyway. The recipe called for leeks or onions, so I used both. I also doubled the recipe. I didn't have any fresh thyme, so I just...

Even though this recipe is amazing, it needs something more substantial in it. The mushrooms alone just weren't enough. The next time I make it, I will try adding chicken. It also needed more cheese. Overall, really good recipe."

Wonderful! Very moist and full of banana flavor and no butter!! I used sour cream because it's alot cheaper than creme fresche and I used 4 bananas, because what was I going to do with the 1/2 banana leftover? I made the Neely's honey butter to pair with. Delish!!"

Oh my gosh!! Sooooo good and so easy!! The only substitution I made was using vanilla wafers instead of the chessman cookies. They're too expensive. This is my second time making it and it is foolproof. No trying to get the pudding to set like in other banana pudding recipes. It is foolproof!!"

This was a good recipe, but most kids don't like horseradish, so I omitted that. I only had 1 cup of panko and 1 cup of regular bread crumbs, so I went with that and that was plenty! The topping was amazing. The olive oil adds that special something. As far as cheese, I used all sharp cheddar. I love this recipe for it's ease and that everything "

Love love love them!!! You can't really taste the coffee, but it just heightens the chocolate flavor. These cupcakes are not those light little things that you make from a box. They offer a decadent flavor in every bite. And the frosting with the peanuts is so complimentary. This is the first dessert that my daughter every made and it's become her"

Apr 15, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm giving this only four stars because I tweaked it a little. I sauteed some scallions and minced garlic in the bacon drippings, decreased the flour to 1/4 cup and added an extra cup of milk. I also took the potatoes out of the oven before they were completely done, so they would hold their shape. I didn't mash them as Guy did and I waited to add"

Awesome!! I did leave out the tomatoes, thought, because the fam isn't big on them. Still delicious!! I've tried other recipes that used cream cheese, but they were too thick and bland in flavor. The onion and garlic give it a wonderful flavor and the heavy cream makes it nice and creamy. This is the keeper!!

So full of flavor!!! And very easy to alter. I used whatever beef is on sale, top round, bottom round, chuck roast, rump roast, etc. You can also adjust the heat. I use only about half of the cayenne pepper and chili flakes and it is still loaded with flavor. Everyone loves it! For parties, I use the little hawaiian rolls to make little sandwiches"

A little time-consuming, but sooooo worth it!! I was afraid to bake the biscuits on top of the stew, but, they baked just fine, except for the fact, that it was a humid day, and as Ina always says, when making breads, everything needs to stay as cold as possible and you have work quickly to get them into the oven. My biscuits didn't rise very well"

I'm giving these 4 stars, because even though they were beyond delicious, I didn't care alot for the crab boil. The whole kitchen smelled like nutmeg or ginger or something like that. It was actually overbearing. The next time, I think I'll just season the water with a blend of spices that I liked in the crab boil and omit the ones I didn't and p"

Sin-fully delicous! I did omit the cranberries and almonds. (I didn't think the family would like them.) I, like some of the other reviewers suggested, used fresh peaches. I boiled them for one minute, then put them in cold water to cool. The skins peeled off effortlessly and the texture of the peaches was perfect."

Well, the name "Brown Sugar Chewies" says it all. They taste just like brown sugar. I'm giving this 4 stars not because I was crazy about these bars, but because they were easy to throw together last-minute and because I think this could be a great basic recipe to add something to. I'll have to do some experimenting."
