"I can never understand how anyone can rate a recipe after changing so many ingredients. I thought the idea is to make it according to the original recipe and after that, change to your hearts content. I made this and it tasted pretty good. I do agree with some of the comments, so the next time I make this I will know what to adjust. Two cans o"

"Excellent ! Really good pound cake. Any folks who posted that a pound cake is light and fluffy, they just don't know what a pound cake is. How anyone can say this is tasteless with 3 cups of sugar and a good tsp of vanilla really doesn't know what a pound cake should taste like. To the person who couldn't figure out if the flour she used had som"

"I have tried many different popovers, including the recipe from a very well known department store. Yes, they were good but very time consuming. Who has time for that in the morning? These are the best. Put together in no time and baked up deliciousness. I used this basic recipe for several different types of popovers, from savory to sweet and"

"It's really not fair to rate this recipe as is since I tweaked it to my liking. I did not have buttermilk so I substituted 1 cup whole milk and 1 cup plain greek yogurt. I eliminated the salt.

Friday, Aug 17, 2012 on Cooking Channel

"Really great taste and easy to prepare. As far as the salmon goes, I grilled it in my electric grill pan after brushing it with the coconut oil and then put in in the pan with the sauce. If anyone had trouble with the seeds being too hard, you have to wait for the mustard seeds to pop and cook the sauce for the specified amount of time. I used"

Saturday, Aug 11, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"Even though I cut down on the sugar to 1 1/2 cups, it was too sweet. One cup would have been perfect. I also used only one cup of oil, which was plenty. I omitted the glaze, surely didn't need any additional sweetness.
I also added a little ground nutmeg and lemon juice to the apples so they wouldn't brown. I would probably make this again, but"

"Wonderful flavor. I added some extra red and yellow pepper cut in strips and used baby bok choy instead of the spinach which I stir fried after removing the meat from the pan.
