Reviewed Shrimp Fried Rice

Monday, Aug 6, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"I have made this recipe twice, the first time following the recipe exactly, but the second time I took a couple of liberties. I used shelled edamame instead of snow peas (it's what I had on hand) and doubled the sauce. This fried rice is a winner!"

Reviewed Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

Sunday, Jun 17, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"These were the best cinnamon rolls, ever! Alton's clear instructions in the video made a somewhat complicated baking recipe much easier to handle. I was a little worried they wouldn't rise, but once I stuck them in the oven with steaming water, they puffed right up, and were delicious with cream cheese frosting. Brown sugar (as opposed to white su"

"My cinnamon rolls did not get very puffy, maybe it's because I put the dough in the fridge after setting them in a warm place for an hour? i'm not sure what happened. they were still good tasting, though, just not very grand coming out of the oven the next day."

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"You have to get FAT asparagus to successfully skewer them! Wimpy asparagus will not survive! I liked the idea of paprika, I've never put that on asparagus before, so it was a great new idea."

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"I live in the Pacific Northwest, where there is plenty of salmon from Alaska. We eat so much salmon, it's not much of a treat anymore. This recipe really livened up boring old salmon! You can't go wrong with butter, lemon and garlic! I made a foil boat for my salmon and spread the compound butter across the fish and topped with round lemon slices "

"Great guacamole! Just added hot sauce only because I only had about a 1/3 of a pepper. Sprinkle some paprika on top and it's a winner!"

Tuesday, May 8, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"This was good, but I had to add some stuff. I added cilantro, black pepper, hot sauce and paprika. I also used red onion instead of yellow, it's what was in the fridge, and lime instead of lemon. So I pretty much changed the entire thing. But it was delicious!"

"Yum. It wasn't even fair how good these were. The marinade is delicious and the chops were so smoky on the grill. "

Reviewed Omelet for Two

Thursday, Mar 29, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"Really good! As always, I had to tweak the recipe just a little. I added asparagus and ham to the omelet and used a pie dish instead of a skillet, as i'm a little wary of putting my pans in the oven. I also put the omelet in a bain-marie so it wouldn't dry out; I think it worked well keeping the eggs moist. I also served fried potatoes alongside ""

Tuesday, Jul 12, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"This fish is a keeper! Haha, get it? ;) But really, the fish and chips was literally better than any restaurant battered fish I've ever had...including Pike's Place fish and chips in Seattle. The lemon zest in the batter took away all of the greasiness, but none of the crispiness.
Tip for the potatoes: Put down some parchment paper before poppin"

Tuesday, Jun 14, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"I thought these were sort of wierd tasting at first, but they're growing on me. They were super crumbly when they were first cooled from the oven, but second day around, they firmed up and became chewier. These are really rich brownies. I don't think I'd recommend eating as big a slice as Ina Garten cuts of in the video! Overall, pretty decent br"

"Isn't this sauce pretty much ham sauce? You know, the mustard sauce your Grandma served with the Easter ham?? Maybe that's just my Grandma. Anyway, I'll have to try this fish with ham sauce for dinner this week, I'm sure it's good, regardless.

"Super good! Thanks for everyone's advice below. I folded in whipped cream to the espresso cream (fluffier). With each layer I added chocolate shavings over the cream for texture. On top I cut out a piece of paper towel into a heart and set it on the cream, then I dusted around it with cocoa powder then removed the paper, so now there is a little c"

"
This was so dang good! I made it for my parents and brother for Easter Breakfast, and they agreed it was the best french toast they'd ever had! For everyone saying it's not crispy like french toast should be - it is supposed to be custard-like, that's why it's a "casserole" version. "

"I really enjoyed the orange flavor, and added a bit of orange zest in the batter. For the sauce, I used a little less cream, and used a bit of Disaronno amaretto to make up the difference. The amaretto brought out the orange even more, and made them quite flavorful! This was a real winner!
