This is a great way, to get that especially comfort food that we all love so much in the fall, and, to have it anytime. I would also add pumpkin spice and perhaps a little rum for that warm feeling.

Jul 6, 2014 on

This is a great idea. There are a number of ways to do this if you don't have a hook to hang from. You can make a sort of teepee or other frame work made of sticks or tree branches soaked in water so they do not go up in flames and place a stick through the bag and hang it from the frame work of your choice. If I thought in advance I would bring other...

This has possibilities - I would toast whatever kind of bread you prefer with butter and get rid of the Sriracha sauce.

I would make a horseradish aioli and mix mayo with prepared horseradish, lenon jice, garlic, cherry tomatoes chopped finely, chopped chives, salt and pepper prepare all to taste. I would add arugula or crispy...

I have made these beans many times. I pretty much make them as she did but with a little variation. and if there are any type of vegans I don't use bacon or any other type of meat. I do use a combo in small amounts of brown sugar, sweet pickle relish, a tad of molasses and honey. I also add onion and garlic powder along with salt, pepper and a splash...

Mar 22, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is my favorite reuben! I don't like a sweet reuben so I would use saurkraut already prepared (the kind in a package or the packaged cabbage without the sugar added if using store bought cabbage slaw and just adding salt and white vinegar drained) and a little real mayonnise - no Russian dressing. Then i would wrap it in aluminum foil and bake"

Delicioso - you can also use plain popcorn from a plastic bag or a jar - just pop 1/4 - 1/2 cup in a medium size brown paper bag - fold it over 1/2 inch 1-3 times and microwave it at high as you would with a microwave popcorn(you can use the "popcorn setting" and stay with it to make sure all is popped - if you do not hear popping then stop and ch"

This is an excellent way to try a different take on your every day boring mushrooms such as button mushrooms. Although Bobby uses a variety of mushrooms that have a very distinct flavor all on their own. Sometimes you can't find wild mushrooms, that's ok. Maybe you can only find button mushrooms. That is when you use your imagination and can find "

I love this combo. What I do is to cook half the garlic and keep the other half raw garlic(and sometimes extra garlic as I love garlic) and add it at the end along with the grated parmesan cheese. I don't always use the crushed tomatoes - I sometimes like it without. In addition, I also use fresh or dried oregano as well if I want a more enhanced "

Buttermilk, salt and 8 hours or overnight is the magic ingredient for any tasty chicken. I lived in Germany for over 3 years. I came across another american who appreciated american food.
