Off the Charts Yummy! Every single time I serve this the crowd goes nuts. Really, who wouldn't? The ingredients are like magic together. Who doesn't love rich gooey cheese. I never really follow the measurements any can't screw it up! Mayo, butter, cheese and spices of choice. YUMM"

Will definetly make again. I'm so impressed w/ what came out of the oven. So easy! I followed directions exactly w/ connecting ends but will follow others w/ poking hole next time. I also boiled for 2 min as other reviewer said and baked for 20. I usually like to follow recipe to "t" first time but will experiment w/ flours, toppings, additiv"

I'm not sure why this is classified intermediate...its so easy. If anyone out there is the slightest bit intimidated by working with dough, try this. You'll be so pleased w/ the results.
I musty say though I read all those commenting about the salt being too much. I let fear rule and that was a mistake...I will make it with Tyler's salt...

Nov 15, 2012 in on

I thought, 'best apple pie ever", that sounds extreme. Apple pie is easy and is hard to make it be bad. But, I had a bunch of golden delicious so I made it. Let me tell you this is GREAT. The topping creates an almost crust. I didn't realize I had no lemon until too late and used orange, still GREAT. REally, you must try this one. It's a k...

Hate to brake the 5 star trend here but, not my fav. They're great if your looking for a not so sweet cookie. They taste really healthy. The combo of banana and chocolate is great together (i used dark choc) it's just not an exciting cookie to me :("

Husband loved it but he's not a fish lover. I'll make this again but might leave off either some or all of the cheese. I felt as though I was masking the salmon. Course, it's not all about me! I've cook fish before with just the mayo and seasonings, it will form a crust almost. Same idea. Liked the addition of mustard. Lemon zest would pro...

Aug 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Yum! Traditional enough to go w/ all the entrees you'd think for coleslaw but different enough to add some pizzazz. If you like vinegar/sugar based coleslaw this isn't for you although it does have the sweet sour tang. I will be making this again. I had no celery salt but did use celery seed. It worked but I'll get some c. salt for the next t"

Aug 2, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I have made a number of blueberry pies, always looking for my "keeper" recipe. Too much of this, not enough of that and mainly consistency inconsistent. This recipe had great flavor using less sugar then alot the recipes out there. It makes sense too, you make the "glue" first then add the fruit. It is always my habit to try recipe as it reads "

Oh my! I love and search for all things cookie and bar like.I watched her make these and they looked oh so yummy. Funny things to overcome...never used Golden Syrup b4, found it easily and as for the candy, I know they recommend Cadbury bars but I bought Butterfinger before I saw that and I am convinced they are a "honeycomb" center. I used bit"

Reviewed The Ultimate Cheesecake

Oct 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Flavor was good but it did not come out with what I would think is cheescake texture. I am sure it is something in the process, not Tyler or his recipe but if so many folks had similar problems there might be something missing in translation. I did give it extra 10 minutes in oven, then turned oven off and let stay in oven, it was still a bit j...

First I will say they were tasty, not fab. A dense cupcake w/ a yummy icing. Just not over the top. Course my husband (give him choc that's all it takes) loved them. I did use reg chips cause all I had and it worked. I must say though I love that Giada brings us EASY yummy options. I love to cook and consider myself a great cook but I don't al...

Jun 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Four stars not cause it's it will knock your socks off but it's good, easy, and VERSATILE. As many reviews mention, use what you've got. I would be careful not to make the potatoe:meat ratio to far in favor of potatoe...with the crust on top too you need the juice and meat to counter. For me, busy and not always alot of energy to think I would "
