Reviewed mustard-roasted potatoes

Wednesday 8 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe as written simply does not work. Like other reviewers, several pieces of onion were absolutely black, instead of caramelized. I even took precautions before baking, making sure that none of the onion pieces were too far away from the other pieces, and that none of the onion slices had tips pointing up. Next time, I will wait about 35...

"This recipe is a winner. It utilizes ingredients that are readily available and affordable throughout the year. No special cooking equipment required. Even a moderately priced skillet works just fine, because there is no cooking in a screaming hot oven or broiling necessary. I think the cooked, cherry tomato sauce is a great way to add a bit o"

Replied to Chicken Fried Pork Chops with Chunky Pear Chutney Recipe : Sunny Anderson : Food Network

Corn oil, often found in vegetable oil, grows cancer faster than any other fat, including lard and butter. Naughty naughty. Taking 2 stars off your review.

Reviewed barbecued pork ribs

Thursday, Jan 30, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I find this recipe to be quite expensive compared to other barbecued recipes, for it requires a whole bottle of soy sauce just for the marinade, which then gets poured down the drain. Plus half of a large bottle of ketchup and a whole bottle of chili sauce. Heinz chili sauce goes for almost $5 a bottle in this area. Cooking bags are also expensive...

Wednesday, Jan 29, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I am giving this recipe a middling rating because of the discrepancies in the recipe here vs. the tv show. In the episode, their short ribs were boneless and cooked off the bone. There was no shredding of the meat, it was simply sliced into large pieces and put on buns. Furthermore, the tv episode stated that the short ribs were cooked at 200 degrees...

Sunday, Jan 19, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I, too, noticed that all of the fat from the bacon was poured into the pan with the tomatoes to make the vinaigrette. I was concerned that as the dish would cool, the fat would begin to solidify and make for a very unpleasant dish. So, I would strain the bacon out with a slotted spoon, and substitute a few tablespoons of mild salad oil, if needed,...

Friday, Nov 29, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Great technique for roasting a turkey. However, I would like to add a few helpful hints in terms of seasoning. To flavor the meat with salt, herbs and lemon, you need to mix them with butter and put them under the skin. Otherwise, the meat will not be seasoned under the skin Mixing them with soft butter, rather than melted butter, is the easiest...

Master disaster! Tried loading these recipes and personal recipes into the Food Network recipe box... and it just doesn't work. Wrong titles are being pasted to the wrong recipes, as well as the wrong photos. What a mess. I can't even save this recipe to try for fear of it erasing something else in its place.

I wanted to make the chicken breasts, but there is no store near me that sells boneless chicken with the skin on, nor has a butcher available to de-bone the chicken. When I try to do it myself, the pieces look ill-shaped. Therefore, I used bone-in chicken breasts, and used Ina's same formula for roasting bone-in chicken, as described in her Chicken...

Monday, Oct 7, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I really loved the texture of the squash in this recipe. 25-30 mins. at 400 was the perfect time and temperature. You can certainly cut back on the salt and oil if you want to. I was a little concerned about the squash sticking and burning around the edges on my expensive, new baking sheet... but the vegetables slid right off. I miss the typical...

"The recipe was tasty, but the gravy needed a little bit of sprucing up. To get rid of the gray mushroom lumps and strings of cooked onion slices, I used an immersion blender to thicken and smooth out the sauce.. As a side dish I served boiled orzo mixed with a few sauteed mushroom slices. I put some gravy over the orzo mixture, and sprinkled it"

"I wanted to add to my earlier review by saying that I baked my cobbler in a 9 x 12 x 3 inch deep pan. My oven is quite accurate, but after 30 mins, the corners were only just beginning to get some color. As a result, I cooked my cobbler just a little over 45 mins. for a nice, golden finish. Next time, I will try adding the cinnamon to the peac"

"This recipe is delicious. It is very common for peach cobbler recipes to use equal amounts of flour and milk in the batter, despite what others may say here. As shown in the video, the batter is quite loose. The trick is to make sure your self-rising flour is quite fresh. This recipe depends on a strong rise from the self-rising flour. If you"

"The rub/marinade is absolutely delicious. However, I am only giving this recipe 4 stars because of the cooking directions. A 4-5 pound pork roast, with or without the bone, can cook in 3.5 hours, but it will not be really tender. You can't rush it if you want it tender. So,I roasted the meat for 2 hours, uncovered, to develop some bark. Then"

"I tried this roast and it came out tender and delicious -- however, I am not giving it 5 stars. I feel that this recipe should have been labeled "Swiss Steak for Company." Here's why.
