Replied to Fried Chicken

May 24, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I think it was supposed to say 7 to 10 minutes after frying or something like that. You should let chicken rest for about 10 minutes before serving.

But you should always REVIEW based on the recipe specifications, not the recipe plus the 6 other ingredients you added.

A pound of pasta would be 16 ounces. Look on the box.

Replied to irish soda bread

Mar 15, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Raisins are not indigenous to Ireland and were added later when the recipe was brought to this country. Also, the baking method used here is not traditional either. Real Irish soda bread (which only contains the 4 ingredients Debora lists) was baked in a covered pot. What I do is use two layer cake pans. Put the rounded loaf in one pan and invert...

Good, basic enchiladas. I would like to clarify something for people who found these too messy. There are two methods of "softening" corn tortillas to be rolled into enchiladas, you can either dip them in hot oil and drain on paper towels, or dredge them through the enchilada sauce before filling. There is no need to do both. Do whichever is easier...

Weird. Made it exactly as the recipe stated. I'm not sure what are it not work. I always put dry mustard and hot sauce in my mac n cheese, so that's not it. I think the eggs and evaporated milk just gave it an odd consistency. And maybe use half sharp cheddar and half milder cheese. Just not good.

Second sentence should read "made it not work" apparently autocorrect got me!

Replied to Outrageous Brownies

Refrigeration is not required. They will keep at room temperature just like other brownies. I have a small oven too, and cut the recipe in half and baked for the same amount of time in a 9X13 pan and it worked perfectly.

Additional note: the cooler these get, the less noticeable the coffee flavor, so that is probably why she has you refrigerate them. I still won't do the instant coffee again, but this is probably why some people find the coffee overpowering and some don't.

First - I tried to stick as close to the recipe as possible. I subbed pecans for walnuts (don't like walnuts in chocolate) and cut the coffee by 25%. The main reason I deducted a star is that the instant coffee granules just didn't seem to add the right coffee flavor. Both husband and son (both coffee lovers) said they didn't like the overwhelming...

Replied to Hot Cocoa

When a recipe calls for "cocoa" it is always unsweetened. The only "sweetened" cocoa is hot chocolate mix.

If you are always going to use milk to make it, I would leave out the powdered milk altogether. If you might use water sometimes, I would leave it in.

Reviewed Red Wine Risotto with Peas

Dec 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I loved this rice. I made two changes (one on purpose, the other accidental). I added 4 oz of chopped baby bella mushrooms with the garlic. (I did leave out the peas, but since they are listed as optional I don't consider this a change.) I simply forgot to put in the parmesan cheese, but nobody missed it. This is some of the best risotto I ha"
