Feb 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Alright Chef, I don't understand your recipe. I have followed it to the letter but I am still having problems. The dough does not seem to have enough liquid to make a harmonious dough ball after kneading. So I had to add some to make it work. Also, I am not getting a good rise from it either. I have made it now I think for the third time and now ...

Very yummy and very rich! I made it just like it said and I really like it. It's a keeper. I think the only thing I will change is trying to cut down on the richness somehow. I'll have to do some thinkin' on that one. It goes great with a cold glass of milk.""

I am enjoying this one right now, It's good I think I would adjust the amount of simple syrup. I'm a drink whimp and would like it to be a little sweeter. Thanks Guy!

Wow! This one is tasty! I love it. I made some changes though. First, for a couple of reasons I fried the avocados in the shell. My avocados were a little bit on the ripe side and there is always presentation. It worked out. Second I did not have all the ingredients but I did the best I could and it was tasty! I think the next time I make this (a...

I thought this recipe was DELICIOUSO! A lot of work with all the different recipes but oh so worth it. I made it on July 4th and took it to a picnic style get together that my friends and I were having and it got rave reviews. They were even asking for the recipe. I did make some changes along the way. I used plain yogurt instead of mayonaise in t"

This is a Y-U-U-U-MY SOUP!!! Fantastic! The only thing I did different was I used one quarter of a white onion because I did not have any shallots or purple onions. I put all the ingredients into the food processor except for the curry powder because I was looking for that smooth creamy texture. It needed about 2 cups of chicken stock to help the...

I wanted to bake this bread today for lunch bread tomorrow so I really edited this recipe. I bypassed all that stuff regarding the refrigeration. I let the dough sit in a warm place for one hour to rise then placed it in my preheated oven and dutch oven. Then I baked it at the temperature recommended and let it brown as recommended. It came out BEAUTIFUL!...

The other thing I wold change is the garnishes. Why garnish with sour cream? there is no sour cream in the recipe. That just didn't make sense to me. I love the croutons though. I wasn't too sure about the green onions either but I like the added "green". I think I will add some finely chopped parsley at the end of the dish not at the beginning as...

I also felt the directions were confusing when it came to begin cooking the raw mushrooms and onions. The directions are not super clear what mushrooms are to be added. I mean I am a fairly accomplished cook and I really had to sit down and read it to make it clear in my head as to what the next step is I needed to take.

Excellent but there is a few things I will change. The first thing is that I would not add the wine until the end where the heavy cream and roux are added. I tried adding it when the stock was added and the taste of the wine was gone and I didn't like that. The next thing is that I would have added more wine. I think I added closer to a half a bottle....
