Reviewed Portobello "Pizza" Nicoise Recipe : Bobby Flay : Food Network

Jul 27, 2014 on

Loved this recipe. So many fresh tastes! Don't 'stress' over the anchovies. You won't taste them. But it's a must for the taste of the Mediterranean dressing. I am trying to make drastic changes to my 'diet' by grilling more fruits and vegetables and this show makes it easy to follow/continue the process. I am not following any real diet other than...

YUM! Never thought of adding sea salt (that I love) on almonds. As I don't like much sweets, this was great great great for me. Loved it. Used really good sea salt. Also tried it with pink salt. Will try with smoked salt next.

Food network please remove this review. It's not about the recipe and it is lowering the star average that should related to the recipe and not the website and that person's inability to view the recipe!!!

Food network: please delete this review! How do you rate a 1 star just because you have a question!!! That 1 star has lowered the overall rating for no reason apparent!!!

Reviewed Mystery Pecan Pie

Dec 1, 2013 on

This year as I didn't have much time I purchased a beautiful pecan pie at Costco. My family refused to eat it and demanded Paula's Mystery Pecan Pie instead. Won't make that mistake again! Nowadays most people don't want all that huge amount of very sweet bro sugar and corn syrup that's why Paula's is so perfect.

I switched the beer with red wine because the last time I made chili with beer, we didn't like the taste of the final product. RE: nekiavw's Jan 27 review, I followed the recipe to a T but before adding the wine, I skimmed the fat off the meat. You've got to cook the meat with the veggies or the taste of bacon and veggies won't season the meat w"

Recipe not written the way Tyler cooked it on TV. First, he does NOT use beer in the recipe. He shows the beer to say "the food is cooked in the time it takes to drink a beer" and he drinks one. But none of it goes in the recipe. Second, he does not use bay leaves. NOW: let me tell you how incredible this recipe was that I made yesterday! The only"

MUST: use a popover pan. MUST: make sure the pan is very hot, heated in the oven before filling them. MUST: fill the pans all the way to the top.

SUGGESTION: After filling the pans with the batter, drop a few squares of cheese (like Swiss cheese) in each. And add lots of pepper to the batter for a change. Great with the...

Jul 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Addition to my previous review: the original recipe I had made was from Paula's friend Susan Mason who brushed the pre-baked pie crust with 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard (the smooth one, not the grainy mustard). That made a HUGE difference to the taste of the pie. It raised it to another level of perfection. Try it. "

OMG. What a tasty pie! This French gal and her English friend living in Texas fell in love with this pie! Wow, what taste. I am making it again today because my husband is a fan as well. For those taking stars off because the ingredients are not healthy, come on! The pie tastes fabulous so review based on that, not the fact you forgot to realize"

I love it. I use it on everything, especially French baguette slices before I place them in the oven to grill a little. Or I brush some on sticks of rosemary before placing them on top of good steaks on my grill outside or in oven. This does not make a huge amount and as Ina does, I too keep my good oils in the fridge, especially those infused...

This was excellent and great for summer days. A change to the regular cole slaw's. BUT FYI: the 1 cup of salt, it's to make a bunch in advance of Paula's HOUSE SEASONING.

With the doubled recipe, I made 1-10 inch...
