To jamielsoule_11808383 - parchment paper is not the same as wax paper. If you used wax paper then it likely melted, causing the issues you mentioned in your review. Parchment paper is heat-proof and makes a perfect non-stick surface for baked goods. ""

For bayleaf10 - seems there's no salt in the sauce...my guess is that you may have misread a step or two in this recipe. "

I really, really wanted to like this. I made it because I bought beautiful organic rainbow chard and wanted to use it while it was nice and fresh. Unfortunately, when I added the black-eyed peas and the chard, it took so long to cook the peas (and by the time I finally called it quits, they still were too hard for my taste), the chard was way overcooked....

My husband and I have the prime rib roast tradition, and this year I decided to try Yorkshire pudding, a favorite of mine from living in England for 6 years. I am tickled to death with Claire's recipe! We didn't have a lot of beef fat leftover from our prime rib roast, so upon the suggestions from other reviewers, added just a few little drops of...

I give this five stars because if I'd followed directions, maybe I would have gotten the perfect cupcake. What I did differently was to do a chunky puree of the strawberries, and add to the batter after I whipped up the sugar, eggs, vanilla and melted butter. The batter was incredible, but when baked, the consistency and crumb were more like a muffin...

Um, is this supposed to be a recipe? To say there are some details missing is a gross understatement.

Dec 31, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is my New Year's Eve tradition. My husband and I found the prep simple, the flavors uncomplicated but wonderful and indulgent. The leftovers make fantastic sandwiches the next day, if you have any. This year I got a better grade of rib roast, so I'm excited to see how it turns out (even the lower grade roast was lovely and luscious last year....

My husband and I normally fry our turkeys but this year we opted to try Alton's recipe and I could not believe how wonderful it turned out. We did make minor alterations because we couldn't find all the ingredients we needed. Instead of using allspice berries (which I couldn't find), I used pickling spice. We brined two turkey breasts instead of...
