Reviewed Louie and Pete's Peach Crisp

1 day ago in Recipes on Cooking Channel

This was such an amazing crisp. I've made it twice now in less than a week. The first time, my peaches weren't that ripe and I had a hard time removing the skins (boiled briefly and still wouldn't budge!). So, I left the skins on and it was amazing! Both times, I've subbed Brandy for Schnapps because I only had Brandy in my liq"

I bought a sushi press on Amazon for $3 and change (free ship too! specifically so I could make these for my kids. I was so excited to pop these out, but my oldest (he's 5) wouldn't touch them. It made me so sad! :( The rest of us ate them. The recipe does need a little tweaking. It needs more sugar; basically taste like rice with fruit on to"

This recipe is awesome. If you want it to remain true butterscotch, eliminate the cinnamon and cayenne. However, they do add a great flavor complex. For those of you who have trouble with the pudding setting up, it's not the recipe, it's actually YOU! The key is to not whisk it constantly. Cornstarch thickens up best when left alone with minim"

I love Melissa's pudding recipes. If you have trouble with consistency, whisk sugar and cornstarch in the pan first, then add milk. The key is to not over mix. Cornstarch is NOT like flour, it requires less whisking to thicken. Also, if custard texture is what you're looking for, this recipe is egg-free so you will not get an egg-y texture. I"

I hate giving this a 1 star because I love Nigella so much, but I've tried this recipe 8 (EIGHT!!! times. I tried it over winter 2011, failed 7 times. I just saw the episode again and thought, what the heck, I'll try it again. It failed again - it just flops and has no puffy honeycomb texture. I don't know what to do except give up. Maybe Nig"

Reviewed Dill Pickle Soup

Jul 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This soup lacked so much flavor. I added about 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup dill juice and about a tsp of salt. Still no flavor. I was about to trash the whole pot, but decided to add a heaping Tbsp of chicken base (aka bouillon, which made it more tasty, but a little too salty. Next time, I'll start with a good chicken stock instead of water and it'll be"
