Reviewed stove top mac-n-cheese

Nice quick way to make a quality mac and cheese. I didn't have any evaporated milk, so I used regular milk and it turned out great. Better than a box with powder

Good cookie. I didn't have the colored sugar so I skipped that part. I used orange for the flavor and doubled the recipe, but not the glaze part. I put it in a bottle and drizzled it over the cookies , since some of the comments made it sound like it was very sweet. It was pretty tasty

This was a great comfort food weeknight dinner, but I think I will make it next time without the pepper. Not that it didn't taste great with it, but my daughter really doesn't like peppers . Although I was hoping it would be disguised with the tomatoes, she didn't like it is much as the rest of us did

My finished product doesn't look anything like the picture since I used smoked paprika, but it is anything but tasteless. You do need to season with additional salt once it is almost done. I only wish I cooked the entire bag of egg noodles because there is quite a bit of leftover sauce"

Made it as it was written, no substitutions but I would follow the advice of other posters and watch the salt. This is true with many recipes posted on this site from various personalities. "

I agree with others that said the meat tasted good enough on it's own if you worry about the sauce. I made a few changes based on many of the reviews and also since I wanted to put it in the crock pot. I used about a half of a Sam Adams beer for the liquid and cooked it for 7 hours

Also ( and this is where the reviews were helpful...

I made it tonite, The recipe didn't let us down. I think next time I will put it in the oven to control the cooking temp. It's too hard to keep it low enough for a slow simmer on my stovetop. It was the first time I have cooked short ribs , but it sure will not be my last"

Oct 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Excellent soup. I also chose to use an granny smith apple rather than apple sauce and cooked it along with the sweet potatoes. My curry on hand was on the strong side , so I skipped the curry butter and additional nutmeg. Also maybe my sweet potatoes were on the large size because I needed additional chicken broth to make it thinner. Glad I found...

I did make a couple of substitutions. Used carrots instead of parsnips ( since we don't like them ) and my store didn't have any good bleu cheese so I used gorgonzola. It came out very nice.

I'm a little disappointed in the finished product. I too had a hard time with the dough being way too crumble and keeping it together to roll it out. They turned out a little bland for my taste so they will not be served at my party

I only made the sauce since that's what I was searching for. I served it with grilled salmon finished on an oak plank.
It was my first time making it from scratch and it was easy and delicious !
simmering the made the house smell of vinegar , so might either cut down on that next time and substitute with just white wine
