Very good flavor. I also added black beans and corn. I browned two large chicken breasts in my soup pot to get those delicious crusts in the bottom of the pot and finished baking in the oven..Juices from that pan were added back to the soup pot along with the chicken...skin on and bone in. While I was browning the onion/celery/carrot/jalapeno's "

Jan 29, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

This was very good. I used ground turkey as well, and more beer and beef broth than the recipe called for. Because of this, I may consider thickening with a little flour next time, but the flavor was great. Not the same old, same old chili recipe."

These were delicious!! The coating was light but crunchy and flavor was wonderful. I think if one is looking for a thick coating they might be disappointed but it was just what I like. I marinated the onions in the buttermilk for several hours and had no problems with the coating staying on. My only problem was keeping the oil at a steady temp"

I was not pleased with this one. Wish I had put jalapenos in it. Not much flavor. On the other hand, this would be good for small children that don't like strong flavors."

This was ok but I've had better corn and black bean salads. I didn't cook mine because I wanted cold salad with all the crunch factor. I left out the bay leaf but every thing else was the same. Maybe cooking would bring out more flavors but I took one reviewers suggestion that hers/his was a bit mushy. It does make a ton so half the ingredient"

This marinade was terrific!! I used brown sugar as one of the previous reviewers recommended and other than that I didn't change a thing. I marinated the meat separately. I doubled the marinade recipe and boiled the beef marinade. I too have chicken juice fears...silly or not. I'm my worst critic but I have to say this was a big winner. I'll"

We made this green chile sauce for our burgers yesterday so this rating has to do with that. We followed the recipe to a T and found it way too wet to put on a burger. The fix was simple....we strained the water out. If we make it again, I'll omit the water altogether."

Reviewed Asian Style Slaw

Mar 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This slaw was really good. I tweaked it a bit after reading other reviews. I didn't add any salt as soy sauce is all the salt needed. I added fresh mint and cilantro chopped, and a little less brown sugar and ginger than called for simply because I had very little of those two things. I will absolutely make this again!""

These were absolutely delicious!! My husband enjoyed them as well and he usually doesn't like a burger that isn't ground beef. I'll surely make these again!""

Jan 1, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This brought rave reviews and I was pretty pleased myself! Followed the roasting part almost to a T but used my immersion blender to thicken the gravy with a little corn starch and beef stock. The best!! My husband always makes his pulled pork with a boston butt so I used one too. Could not have been any better. I used Paula Deen's recipe fo...

This was a home run!! I got compliments from my most critical guests. I don't like the taste of raw fennel but cooked is nothing like raw. I used more bacon than the recipe called for and more beer also. I thickened using a little sour cream. Absolutely delicious! I will make it again for sure.""

The taste was wonderful. I omitted the milk as others have said. I had too much sauce (my own recipe) so that made it difficult to turn over but that was my fault. I'll absolutely make it again but will be careful to use less sauce. Who couldn't like fried spaghetti?"

This was a brilliant method!! We used my husbands dry rub mixture(similar to Anne's and slow cooked with beer in the oven and finished on the grill. Best we've ever had much less made. Can't wait to do it again."
