My Favorite Potato Salad!
This is so good that I will never try another potato salad recipe. Been cooking for 40 years and have never hit the "perfect" potato salad until now. I make this recipe exactly as written, although I usually do not have buttermilk so I just sour some milk with a little white vinegar (works perfectly). Ina, thank...

Wonderful and easy bolognese! We made a couple of very small changes. Due to other people saying it was too salty, we reduced the salt to 2 teaspoons (might even cut back to 1-1/2 nex time) and also cut the black pepper down to 1 teaspoon. Also, we didn't have fresh basil so we substituted dry basil (about 1 teaspoonful). Can't say enough about how...

Nothing too special, but if ingredients are handy it makes a pretty quick dinner."

This was okay. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and in place of a recipe that's a little more complex that I usually make, hoping that it would be a good substitute. I will go back to my original recipe."

Really good flavors and not too labor intensive. Hardest part is slicing the meat. It really does help to freeze it slightly."

Pretty good. Too lemony for my family though. Couldn't get it to brown as Ina suggested.""

My family loved this! I'm not a huge hummus fan but all the rest of them are. They said it was the best they'd ever had. Super simple to make too. Definitely use the sesame oil, the feedback from family was this made a very nice difference. Made this recipe exactly as written.""

Made this for Thanksgiving and it turned out really well. Everyone loved it -- even those who do not care for pumpkin pie. Has a really wonderfully light texture, but it's still so rich and delicious. Definitely one of the best cheesecakes I've ever eaten. Mine did crack even though I was careful not to overbeat it. It did not detract from the taste...

Nov 3, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This pork dish is one of the very best recipes from the Food Network website. It's comfort food at it's peak, and yet has a wonderful elegance to it also; very French provincial. Thank you Melissa! Keep the great recipes coming.
