May 19, 2014 on

I made this for my family this weekend. I made it earlier in the day, taste-tested it and it was delicious! Unfortunately, after baking it later in the day, as recommended, most of the sauce was absorbed leaving the meal tasteless. Wish I would have seen the "Chef's" comments before I baked it. I will try it again, this time serving immediate...

Easy and yummy. Couldn't taste the Nutella, but it has a pretty mild flavor anyway. I used mini baking M&M's because that it what I had on hand. Fun to slice and bake. Crunchy outside, soft inside.

I, too, was hesitant about trying this recipe after reading so many mixed reviews, but I had a hunkering that needed to be satisfied. I did not, however, plan ahead and had no time to marinade the meat so I put all the marinade ingredients (minus the olive oil) into my slow-cooker with all the brisket ingredients. When the meat was thoroughly cooked,...

So thankful to Food Network for this site and all of you for your reviews. I was looking for a great recipe to make for a friend and her family of six as her husband battles a serious cancer. The dietary restrictions were challenging . . . some vegetarians, one allergic to nuts and one lactose intolerant. I simply portioned out a serving, with "

Our family just returned from Greece and I wanted to re-create the fantastic chicken gyro meal we had one evening, including homemade pitas. This recipe was fabulous! I had to use my food processor for the cucumber, but made sure to drain the excess liquid. Very thankful to Ina for another great recipe!"

I was dying to try this recipe after I saw the show and finally had a chance to tonight. Yes, they were quite time consuming, but fun! I didn't care for the chocolate cake recipe itself and will probably use my usual go-to which is Barefoot Contessa's Beatty's Chocolate Cake. If you haven't tried it yet, you must. It is much richer than Ree's "

Made half the recipe just to make sure we liked it. Still, it made quite a bit. The vanilla almond milk and oats make the smoothie thick like yogurt would. The taste is very pleasant; mildly sweet and banana-ey. Couldn't detect the spinach at all. I will definitely make this again."

These pancakes were great! I have three teens and didn't tell them what was in them until after they ate them. The only complaint they had, was that they were not quite sweet enough for their taste, even with a sprinkling of powder sugar. Maybe we will add a little dollop of sweetened whipped cream next time."

My kids and I watched "The Next Foodnetwork Star" together, so it was fun to watch Jeff in action then try out his recipes. I have to say, it was thee best Italian Beef sandwich I have ever made. It was incredible! Loved how easy it was to prepare (although a little putsy having to turn the meat every half hour), the spice, the juiciness, the ...
