"These don't make you moan or groan. They don't even make you go hmmmmm. These are ok. Not worth any effort. I suggest to try another recipe. It looks like all the reviewers are adding this and that to the recipe and then rating it. Not a true rating of the recipe, in my opinion."
"Ths is absolutely fantastic and definately company worthy."
"I have never brined seafood. I have whole turkey and pork, but never seafood and thought it strange to brine shrimp. I did it anyhow and oh BOY am I glad I did. These were the BEST shrimp cocktail ever. The shrimp are amazing made this way!! Used my cocktail sauce I already had because the shrimp are the star here."
"Can make ahead for thanksgiving and don't have to do the last minute gravy making. I didn't use smoked wings I used the regular but added more wings for more flovor. Recipe forgets to mention that after you add the stock you are supposed to put your removed wing back in."
"Dont waste your time, energy, or money on these recipes. You can find WAY better gratin recipes on this site. The red wine sauce is merely OK. I got good feedback, but it was from someone trying to be nice. I mean, who is going to say, "this sucks" when you go through the trouble of cooking for them. "
"The rub is amazing. The flavor, awesome. This is a keeper"
"I used FRESH jumbo lump. Not canned. And what a waste of expensive crabmeat. Followed to the T and flavors just aren't there. Don't waste your time or money. "
"This was an amazing salmon cake. You really HAVE to add about 3T of the breadcrumbs to the salmon mixture otherwise these are WAY too loose of a mixture. Other than that, these are superb. The lemon makes it soooooo fresh tasting. I followed the recipe other than addingthe crumbs."
"FANTASTIC cheesecake. I think it may be the best I ever made. I wish I would have listened to all the reviewers who said the crust ingredients are way too much for this size cheesecake. You ALL were soooooooooo right. Oh, I also had to cook mine for way longer than the recipe states. I kept adding 10 minutes and kept "jiggling" for the test ""
"Why in the world do people like deb, previous reviewer, rate a recipe they have yet to try? Does that erk anyone else? Anyhow this Ragu is horrible. Please trust on this one. I am an exceptionally good cook. The wine overpowers everything. If you take a peek at Anne's recipe for bolognese, it's almost the same but with half the wine. Defin""
"Something is soooooooooo wrong with the cornbread recipe. I am an amazing home cook and tried this recipe twice. Was HORRIBLE!!! Was my first recipe I tried from Chuck and it is definitely the last. If you can't give us good basic bread, why bother!""
"This truly is the ultimate. Am a gourmet experienced cook and I have never made a better BBQ chicken. This sauce would be FANTSTIC on ribs. Followed recipe to a tee. Would NOT change a thing. Can't even find the words to describe the dliciosity (yes I made that word up)!""
"These were excellent. My filling was too "juicy" though so I had to drain it in a strainer...no biggy. I also put some cheese in with the cooled mixture and used way more on top (doubled the cheese). I will definitely make these again."
"What a delightful shortbread cookie. This is a keeper. OH, ps to some of you: 2 tablespoons of loose tea does not measure the same as teabag tea. The tea in the teabag is already ground so if using that, use less than 2 Tablespoons."
"Never poached in oil before but WOW was this a hit. and Sweet Chili your review sucks and frustrates us on this forum who actually cook the food before we rate it. What is so hard to understand "COOK ON MEDIUM HEAT" Turn your freaking stove dial to medium,...DUH. You are a MORON. Get off of foodnetwork."
