Reviewed Salt Potatoes

Apr 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I am looking for easy recipes for my crab dinner party and thought this would be easy to fix along with steamed crabs and corn on the cob. I have never tried the "real thing' from New York so I am not sure if they are as good, but this was so simple, and yes, the insides of the potatoes were dense but creamy, very hard to describe, but tasted del...

The salting of the cabbage just messes up this whole recipe. Couldn't rinse the salt out of the cabbage. Ruined the rest of it. Would like to try again, but need to research how to "salt cabbage" for slaw. " "Generously for 3 hours", way to vague.""

Easy to make, big hit with my family. I did as other reviewers recommended and only used about 1/2 tsp salt if that which I sprinkled on the onion garlic as it was softening. I used a boxed broth and it was not too salty, so it turned out great. It was so easy/good I made it again, only I added some fresh rosemary and goat cheese, a touch of crea...

Made this as a side dish for a ham dinner for 40 people. It was gone before anything else. Everyone was hesitant to try it, but once they did, they finished it off having seconds and thirds. I did use a block of cheese rather than pregrated, as per other reviewers suggestions. It turned out delicious. Wonderful textures and flavors. Not too sweet...

I am only rating the wine sauce part of this recipe. I am an experienced cook, and my sauce was perfect in texture from the reduction, and straining etc...but it was very bitter & bland. I could not fix it, I even tried adding sugar to counter act the bitter. I used a very drinkable cabernet, (Cupcake Cabernet) and just don't know why it ended up...

This was my first attempt at Strawberry Rhubarb pie. The filling was a tiny bit soupy, and I did follow the recipe exactly, but it was still one of the best tasting fillings I have made. My crust got a little soggy but that's just me. I think I overloaded the pie pan. If I could get the crust right, it would be like eating my grandma's pie. Very e"

I gave this 4 stars because it was very easy,and they came out picture perfect.Texture perfect as well. Crunchy & chewy just the right balance.I must not like real ginger cookies however, because they have a bitter aftertaste and the ginger in them is so strong it is almost hot, as in spicy. I bought my crystalized ginger from World Market, and it...
