Jul 2, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Moist and delicious. Easy to make, I didn't follow the banana instructions. I only had 3 super ripe ones, and I just mashed them with the sugar. Then added all other liquid to that. They turned out perfect. "

Jun 8, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were awesome. Followed the recipe as is, except cut down on cooking time of carrots by like a minute or 2, just to retain a little more crunch. That's how we like it though."

May 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I didn't really follow this recipe exactly b/c I was going off memory. I didn't do anything to the jalapeno's except thinly slice and de-seed. I used cream cheese instead (b/c it's SO much cheaper), I used regular whole wheat bread. And mild cheddar. So, if it was this amazing not following the recipe, I can only imagine if I followed it.

Apr 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These meatballs were fabulous. Mine only made 12, but I used 1 lb of beef and that's it. Plus I think they were a little bigger than Anne suggested. I didn't pan sear mine, I just put them straight into the oven. When I took them out I stuck them in my own recipe or sauce. They are so tender and freaking delicious."

Oh my GOSH. This stuff was delicious. I usually make roast with a pack of onion soup mix and cream of mushroom. NOT ANYMORE. I did add mushrooms to this though. IT was great. Also cooked it in the crock pot."

I think this is the only recipe of Alton's I've ever made that was easy and delicious. I didn't think they were a lot of work at all. But of course we made the mix a few days ago, and the pancakes this morning. They were soft and flufffy and had tasted great. I didn't buy store bought pancake mix in the first place, but now I definitely won't....

These had great flavor. Our didn't turn out like his though, they got gummy. I am not going to blame Jeff, I think we just did something wrong. Maybe we didn't drain enough water out, or something. Plus they kind of stuck to the bottom of the pan so we had to flip them with a spatula.""

THese were good. THey were on the thick side, which isn't a really bad thing. I didn't read the recipe through the first time, so I was upset to find out the bananas didn't go into the batter. But they were good.""

This soup was good, but I won't make it again. I am not that big of a fan of asparagus, especially not when it's been turned into baby food. It was pretty easy to make. There was nothing WRONG with it, we just aren't fans of the pureed asparagus.""

This was awesome. I've never had stroganoff before so I don't have anything to compare it to. BUt we will make it again. The only thing I will change is reduce the butter, it had a little greasy after taste. But it was still too good!! The kid and I don't typically even eat mushrooms but we loved them in this.""

Mar 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The ONLY reason I am not giving this 5 stars is b/c it's a little on the sweet side. I know it's ice cream and molasses cookies, but I think that next time I will cut back on some sugar in the ice cream, and the brown sugar/molasses in the cookies. That's a lot of sweet, and then you roll it in turbinado!! But I LOVE molasses, and that's exact...

These things were great. I didn't taste any black beans. The recipe calls for 1 tsp instant coffee, I actually put in almost 1 tsp, which I probably shouldn't have. But that's my fault, I think these are great. I think next time I will try to cut back on oil and sugar for healthy eating needs and see how they taste. But these were awesome and...

My family thought this was amazing. I used chicken breast, and doubled or tripled the garam masala. I de-seeded one of the peppers and not the other, I have some weaklings in the house, so I should've taken out more seeds. I didn't have cream so I just used greek yogurt. I don't know how it would've tasted with heavy cream vs yogurt, but it wa...

these things are awesome, and super easy. I have made them 2 times already. I think next time I make them I'm gonna try not to cook them quite as long, I would like a little more chewy texture, and these (at least mine) are more on the crisp side. They are still absolutely fabulous!""

I don't know what posessed me to add cilantro to this. It killed any deliciousness that was there. I think I might keep the grilled corn idea for future, but that was really the only thing I cared for. The cabbage was ok in it, I guess the cilantro just overpowered everything. She does say not to use it if you aren't a fan, I don't know what ...

All I could really taste was the limes, and I just found out after making this recipe that I don't like limes that much! Luckily we had the stuff on hand to turn this into a regular taco night, but with chicken! I used sour cream with milk added as someone else stated, and all I really tasted was sour cream with lime. I added 2 chipotle's and ...
