Reviewed Grilled Link Hot Dogs with Homemade Pickle Relish

Dec 7, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

The relish was delish. Pretty labor intensive for just grilling some dogs at an ordinary bbq, but it was a great way to fancy things up when we had guests over and had some all-beef dogs to grill. I also did some onions in a foil packet on the grill for more options. I left out the yellow pepper from the relish because they were obscenely expensive...

Loved this recipe! Not only are they actually healthy-- not just not-unhealthy-- they're delicious and look lovely. This was my first time using buckwheat in anything, I bought it just for this recipe, and I really liked the flavor. These are definitely going into my weekend-morning breakfast rotation.

I didn't even roast the pears (because my pears were already very ripe) but the salad was delicious. I added some goat cheese on top. The dressing seems very very simple but is surprisingly delicious and unique. I'll be using this dressing recipe on all sorts of salads.

Clearly I am in the minority here. I must have done something wrong with the frosting (although I followed the directions). It came out too gooey. And the pumpkin bars themselves were kind of bland-- I thought they need a lot more spice. Next time I would add more cinnamon, plus some nutmeg and ginger. They were nice and moist though, as everyone...

Reviewed Herbed Lentils with Spinach and Tomatoes

I thought this dish lack flavor. I even added almost twice the herbs called for (just because I had them on hand) and it still seemed on the bland side to me. I served it with a cumin and tomato salmon dish, thinking that they would complement each other. The lentils are not terrible, but definitely not worth repeating.
