Reviewed Sage and Mushroom Stuffing

Monday, Dec 2, 2013 on

I also agree this is the closest recipe to stuffing inside the bird. I used butter instead of canola oil and also did not use all of the chicken broth - it would have been way too soggy.

A great & simple turkey - very moist & everyone loved it.

Sunday, Jul 28, 2013 on

"All over a great moist banana bread. I definitely cooked under 1 hr. and it was just right. My in-laws loved it."

"Easy & tasty - the peas give the dish a great color."

Tuesday, Apr 9, 2013 on

"Overall a good idea, but way too much butter. I only used half a stick (not the 4 sticks stated in the recipe) and both my husband and I thought it was still too rich."

"Great taste & very tender. A definite keeper!"

"Overall a good recipe, but nothing special. I wouldn't go out of my way to make this again."

Monday, Sep 24, 2012 on

"Overall very good, although I prefer using all beef rather than half pork, and they were a little too spicy for my taste."

Reviewed Fried Smashed Potatoes with Lemons

Friday, Sep 21, 2012 on

"Very good if you can get the potatoes to stay together. I found that if you wait a few minutes to pick them up after smashing them that they stay together much better. Be patient when frying and let them get nice and brown before flipping - this will also help."

Friday, Sep 21, 2012 on

"Pancakes were on the thick side so I had to thin them down quite a bit. The lemon zest was good, though."

Reviewed Pulled Pork Sandwich

Monday, Sep 10, 2012 on

"The pork was just ok & the cooking time definitely needs to be increased. My other pulled pork recipe makes a juicy & delicious fall-apart pork and this recipe doesn't even compare. I would not attempt this one again."

Reviewed Cilantro Fries

Monday, Sep 10, 2012 on

"Fries are tasty & look great - a definite keeper. I used garlic infused olive oil and they came out delicious. I may even add another clove of garlic next time."

Reviewed Hearty Tomato Soup with Lemon and Rosemary

Friday, Aug 24, 2012 on

"Nice flavor, but I didn't like the consistency of the pureed veggies (mainly the onion). Next time I would go easy on the blender."

Reviewed Strawberry Galette

Tuesday, Jun 19, 2012 on Cooking Channel

"Easy to make & delicious. The strawberries really come through without being too sugary. I served this for in-laws during dinner and everyone raved. A definite keeper."

Wednesday, May 2, 2012 on

"Very simple & tasty - I will definitely make these again and again..."

Reviewed Crown Roast of Pork

Thursday, Jan 12, 2012 on

"I only used the olive oil herb paste for the crown roast (needed a quick recipe & then stuffed with saurkraut) and it was excellent! I will definitely try the pan sauce & stuffing next time.""

Reviewed Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

Thursday, Dec 8, 2011 on

"Good, but not over-the-top must-make-it-again great. I added extra cinnamon, and it could still use a little more. Also definitely has a bourbon taste, so if you are not a bourbon lover, use less.""

Reviewed Indonesian Ginger Chicken

Tuesday, Dec 6, 2011 on

"A great staple, although I would reduce the amount of honey (too sweet!) and add pepper (if you like a little kick). I also add scallions when grilling, instead of baking.""

Reviewed Ginger Pumpkin Tart

Friday, Dec 2, 2011 on

"A really easy recipe, but you MUST add pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves) or it will be rather bland. This is a great start.""

Wednesday, Nov 9, 2011 on

"Good, not great. The pork chops were a little bland, but the grits were good.""

Tuesday, Nov 1, 2011 on

"Very moist & light - I love that it has a holiday pumpkin flavor & yet you don't feel so bad about eating a slice... or two :)"

Reviewed Parmesan Smashed Potatoes

Monday, Oct 17, 2011 on

"Great flavor & texture - I will definitely make these again. Perhaps next time I'll reduce the fat content of the half & half - I don't think it would hurt the recipe.""

Reviewed Apple and Pear Crisp

Monday, Oct 17, 2011 on

"The best crisp recipe I've tried yet - rave reviews from our family gathering! I would only reduce the amount of sugar in the apple/pear mixture - a bit sweet for my taste.""

Sunday, Sep 25, 2011 on

"A great way to add some zing to your everyday sandwich. I'd even add a bit more rosemary, if you like herbs."

Sunday, Sep 25, 2011 on

"Nice concept, but a bit dry. The apricot ginger sauce was good - added some water to reduce the thickness."

Thursday, Sep 15, 2011 on

"I have to say this was pretty bland. There would have to be too many adaptations to give this a better rating. Too bad since I usually like Ina's recipes.""

Reviewed Broccoli Casserole

Thursday, Sep 15, 2011 on

"I did not care for the egg in the recipe, too much of a mayo taste, and a bit bland. Not worth the calories.""

Reviewed Chicken and Dumplings

Friday, Aug 19, 2011 on

"Overall, this recipe was just ok, after a few adaptations. The sauce was not thick & the biscuits were not cooked enough after the last 10 minutes suggested in the recipe (they tasted like raw dough). I ended up cutting each biscuit in half again and left it on the stove on simmer for another 20 minutes - by then the sauce had thickened up and t""

Tuesday, Aug 2, 2011 on

"The dough is awesome - best dough I've tried yet (we love thin & crispy)! Husband prefers chunkless sauce, so I pureed, which was nice but maybe this altered why I didn't love the sauce. I may add a bit of sugar & tomato paste next time. Loved the caramelized onions. Will definitely make again with minor revisions, but no changes to the crust!""

Tuesday, Jul 19, 2011 on

"Great basic spinach salad - we added thinly sliced red onion & toasted pine nuts & walnuts. Husband loved the prosciutto!"
