Mar 30, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Just made this Chicken Noodle Stew.There is a ton of chicken, almost as much noodles, and only a bit of vegetables in the finished dish; but that's okay, this is supposed to be a hearty dish. Had to add another 1 1/4 tsp of salt and an 1/8 tsp. more of pepper for my taste (the recipe does say "add more salt as needed"). I liked that this is thicker...

Mar 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made the raw version without adding the water and it ended up having quite a large amount of liquid to it. This salsa definately needs garlic, and salt added to it. Maybe cumin too. I'll have to play with it some to perfect it.

WoW, I'm Impressed! This came out really really tasty. I cut back the adobe chili powder by half, and left out the cilantro because I'm using it in other areas; I don't want to overpower the final dish. Used the 2/3rd cups of broth as recommended and gently mashed with an old fashioned potato masher. I could eat all of this in one sitting with melted...

We decided to do a green bean casserole this year for Thanksgiving since so many people call it a traditional dish. I received many compliments on Alton Brown's recipe. The mushroom sauce really is delicious; it just takes much longer than the time indicated to thicken. Be patient, it will turn out amazing. The green beans in the finished product...

This is a great recipe with one very major correction. If you watch the you tube video, you will see that you need to add the beaten eggs to the milk, sugar, salt, flour mixture before it gets hot. No amount of tempering is going to stop you from getting bits of scrambled eggs in your tasty cream/custard if you follow the recipe as is. It will tak"

Made this easy recipe tonight. Very flavorful but then again I used very large cloves of garlic. This recipe also had the right amount of heat to it. I would suggest people who do not like spicy food to cut back on the red pepper flakes to at least half the recommended. Would definately keep this in my recipe book! Thank you!"
