Reviewed All American Beef Taco

Apr 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

As is, a tablespoon of salt is way too much for only a pound of ground beef. If you omit the 2 teaspoons in the Taco Potion and just put in the 1 teaspoon in the beef when you cook it, this is actually a very good recipe. I can't believe this recipe was intended to have that much salt. I know Alton is not afraid of salt in food, but this seems "

These were fantastic. I would not expect to be able to buy better cinnamon rolls. Not much else to say. The technique wasn't that complicated and everything just seemed to work right.""

Really good pickles. I let them go for 2 1/2 to 3 weeks in the crock, and they were really good and sour. The aroma coming from the crock after the first week made it hard to not eat one then and there.

I used bottled spring water which seemed easiest. I never noticed bubbles forming, and there was hardly any scum to speak of...

Reviewed Grilled Chicken Cutlet Parmigiana

Aug 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is a quick and easy recipe, and it doesn't require too many ingredients. It is essential to get the smoked mozzarella and fresh basil, without those, the recipe wouldn't be the same. The flavor is still a bit simple, but not bad for a quick weeknight meal. Unlike many of the 30 minute meals, this one really does take less 30 minutes start...

Reviewed Grilled Pizza -Three Ways

Jul 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I have historically not had much success with making pizza. This was not one of those times. I made the prosciutto and date pizza, mostly because my wife didn't want to try that one. The combination of sweet and salty was fantastic, and the thyme (I was a little worried it would be weird) was a wonderfully surprising accent to an already great "

Apr 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Very good dish. I halved the recipe as far as the meat goes because it was just my wife and me, but I left the sauce the same. I think it may have been too little sauce otherwise. I'm normally not a mushroom fan, but the oyster mushrooms were terrific with the shallots and the sauce. Overall, it was delicious, and I made a side of bow-tie pasta...

Reviewed Corned Beef and Cabbage

Mar 20, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is a really good corned beef recipe. The corned beef was almost falling apart, and the vegetables great. The exception was that the potatoes (left whole) were not done. The carrots, parsnips, and cabbage were all terrific.

The most difficult part came when I had to take the cabbage out and slice it. I was in a hurry, so...

Reviewed Pressure Cooker Chili

Feb 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Really good chili. I made this recipe several times in the slow cooker on low for 4 to 5 hours, and it was great. Then I got a pressure cooker. This not only save me 3.5 to 4.5 hours, the result was a lot more moist and flavorful. I've found 2 chipotle peppers to be a bit on the mild/medium side. Use 4 or 5 peppers for some good heat. Also,...
