I wanted to love this, I really did. Did the recipe exactly as written, and did the cooking times exactly as written, but we didn't adore the sauce. I bought a decent but inexpensive cabernet as the red wine component, and wonder if the wine you use makes the difference in the ratings. I'm wondering if a sweeter wine would make the all the diff"

Reviewed Cuban Pulled Pork Tacos with Guava Glaze, Sour Orange Red Cabbage-Jicama Slaw and Chipotle Mayonnaise

Jan 14, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these tacos with pulled pork I had on hand from another day. I seasoned the meat with some Southwestern chili peppers (a variety) and made the slaw to go with it. I wasn't crazy about the slaw, until I put it on the tacos. My god, it made the dish. And my veggie-loving daughter couldn't stop eating the slaw, either. Bobby flay scores ag"

Sooooo good. This will be a regular in the rotation. Did the recipe just about exactly - didn't have fire roasted tomatoes, only regular diced, and used one serrano and one jalapeno as that was all I had. And I almost always add cumin to just about any south of the border dish I do, as it is my husbands favorite spice - added 1 T. Really easy "

Reviewed Vodka and Citrus Cured Salmon

Dec 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a very lovely and spritely tasting cure for Salmon. This is my 3rd go around for it. And I never remember to get the lemon vodka, which I would like to try sometime. I do add a bit more lemon peel to compensate for it. Be sure to slice the salmon very, very thin. Very impressive for a brunch or on a hor d'oeuvres table for a special e"

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

This is to die for. Did the chicken exactly as written, so flavorful and tender. Complex flavor balance. And the cheese sauce suited the dish perfectly. Didn't do the avocado relish, but will make next time and turn the dish into tacos. Thanks, Bobby!""

Reviewed Gingerbread Cookies for the Holidays

Dec 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is, by far, the best gingerbread cookie I ever tasted. It had a complex, sophisticated and yet homey flavor. I live at 7,000 feet, and so I refrigerated the dough overnight (Hey, every little thing I do to increase success with baking, is important), wrapped into 3 portions. I rolled them out between 2 pieces of wax paper, and had no prob...

DO NOT make this turkey on Thanksgiving day if you are expecting guests and have an electric oven!! The smoke is incredible and unless you can open all the windows, and you don't mind a horrific amount of smoke, can the cooking/baking technique work. The oil splatters on the hot coil (I have an electric, convention oven) and creates a miserable...

Everyone should make this recipe for Thanksgiving over any other homemade recipe, and certainly over any canned variety. Easy to make, and the flavors are bright, sophisticated, and yet familiar and homey at the same time. ""

This is unbelievable and my go-to recipe when I have a crowd. And for earlier posters who complain about the salt level - the only thing I can think that you are doing wrong is two-fold - 1. that you are substituting table salt or 2. that you are not weighing the amount required. You can not substitute table salt for the amount given unless you"
