Feb 19, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

These are my new favorite guilty pleasure snack! I went to a local cheese shop (Venissimo, for anyone in San Diego) and asked them for a soft stinky cheese. The fancy french cheese I picked went beautifully. A stinky cheese really works well here. Next time I'm going to crisp the bacon first, remove it from the pan then cook the onions, then retur"

The spice rub was my favorite thing, so delicious. I skipped the smoking part of the meat and just browned the outside before roasting. No brisket at my grocery store that day so I used pork shoulder. I only needed two hours for the size shoulder I got. The sauce, mmmmm, the sauce. So amazingly delicious. Full of flavor from the tomatoes, veggies,"

These were fun and easy to make. The flavor was very good but I didn't think they stood out from other good egg rolls. I wasn't able to fit two slices of avocado in my rolls, maybe the extra avocado slice would have put it over the top. They are still very good and I will be making these again and again. They look so pretty too when you cut them i"

So good and so simple. I thought you would need enough oil for a deep fry to make rolled tacos but a shallow fry worked perfectly. I was so amazed how delicious and simple these were I'll start making other variations say using left over pot roast."

Tyler's couscous recipe is a great base to make your own couscous salad. I used whole wheat israeli couscous since my finace doesn't like regualr couscous. My grocery store was out of fennel so I used a variety of chilis (poblano, aneheim, jalapeno) which I removed the stems and seeds, used a little evoo, S&P, and roasted under the broiler for ju...

This was a really delicious recipe. I tweeked it ever so slightly. Before adding the sazon or sofrito, I got my pot super hot. I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, and a hot paprika then I browned it all over in the hot pot. I took the chicken out and set it aside while I sweated the sofrito. I then added the tomatoe paste and stirred everyt...

All I can say is, WOW! Super delicious. I've never had a braciole so I didn't know what to expect. This so so flavorful and delicious. I used a 1.5 lb flank steak and had my butcher butterfly it for me then pounded it out. Worked beautifully. ""

To answer a question, the avocados don't turn brown because of the lime juice that gets added. The acid from either lemons or limes stops the avocado from oxidizing."
