Reviewed Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Tuesday, May 3, 2011 on Cooking Channel

"These muffins looked so good in the actual episode I couldn't wait to make them. I followed the recipe exactly and felt the batter was a little too thick after I finished mixing all the ingredients together but I kept on going. These muffins were dry and bland tasting. There's only a hint of lemon in the background, definitely lacking full flavo"

"Ina, thank you so much for this recipe!!! I marinated overnight and the chicken came out so moist and full of flavor. Since it's still pretty cold out I couldn't fire up the grill so instead I roasted the chicken and it turned out delicious. My husband kept going back for more helpings."

"I normally give Ina's recipes 5 stars but for this recipe I subtracted one star because all 8" round square pans are not created equal!! I made this cake today and followed the recipe exactly. Reading other reviewers comments I prepared an extra 8" round cake pan just in case, so I had 3 instead of 2. I purchased the disposable aluminum pans which are not very deep. After mixing the batter I realized there was no way all the batter would fit in just two pans so I measured out exactly two cups of batter per pan, the batter yields 6 cups by the way. Cakes came out wonderful!!!! It cooked in about 30-35 minutes. They rose perfectly and nothing spilled over. At the end I had a delicious 3 layer cake. Ina usually tests her recipes but she may not have given thought to the fact that home cooks may be using different pans, hence only 4 stars."

"The fennel seed is very strong and overpowered the overall flavor. It's fine for people who love fennel seed but I won't try this again.

"This recipe is so delicious but I did take some advice from previous reviewers(thank you :)) I added tomato paste and that helped the consistency. I didn't have pistacios on hand (and they are too expensive anyway) so I used cashews and they worked well. The flavorings were perfect otherwise and I would make this again again!!!

"This recipe is amazing!!! Thanks Ina, for always testing recipes before posting them. I've made this recipe so many times over the past year and each time I either double or half the recipe depending on how many guests I'm feeding and because the ingredient measurements are so exact it's a cinch. I've played around with the seasonings like adding ground garlic (delicious) instead of the nutmeg and it works so well. Definitely recommend this dish.

"Alton, you are the man!!! I have been using this recipe for 3 years now and it's fail proof. I started using it as a beginner cook and the measurements are perfect. The turkey is full of flavor and I always get a nice browned skin on top. I've gotten rave reviews and always credit Alton for this recipe. I've tried many recipes over the years from food network and Alton's always, always turn out well. I really believe the reason is he actually tests his recipes before he publishes them on the website unlike many other chefs on the network. His methods are fool proof. I tried his green bean casserole recipe last year to go alongside the turkey and it paired amazingly well! Enjoy.
