Reviewed bourbon pecan pie

Thursday, Nov 27, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Did it all except the crust, which I just bought. To make up for the lack of bourbon in the crust I added two more tbsp's in the filling. I also spiced the pecans on top, though I just scattered them around. I put a scoop of my whisky flavored ice cream on top, but after taking a bite of the pie, pushed the ice crease aside to eat by it self. Also...

Might as well open up a can of Campbell's mushroom soup as there's nothing at all special about this one. I mean it's good, its tasty, but not any better than a can.... Only use I can find for this is it is fairly easy, a good way to use leftover mushrooms, but then who has 1 1/2 pounds left over..I had about 1/2 of 'rooms so I cut the recipe in...

I am going to strongly disagree with the first three reviews. First off, I love burgers, eat them all the time, grind my own meat, grill them direct and indirect from med rare to well done on the stove, gasser and charcoal. I ground the meat just as in the recipe, that was fine, though not any better than my usual grinds. I even made homemade buns...

"ahhh. I give it a five for originalty. At best, a three for taste. Since taste is the most important, I give it a high three. I would rather grill my salmon and add the 'gus as a side with a sauce.

"First off, it's only pizza dough, nothing to get excited about. Taste? Average, not bad, not great. Pretty much like those prepackaged bags from the grocery. Is it cheaper? Not sure as I did not figure out the cost. Is it easy to make? Yep as long as you have a mixer. Now, my pizza pan is a 16, a tad larger than the recipe is made, which i"

Will I make it again? In all probability, nope. Too many other sauces to try when this was just ok plus.

"Sorry, but I give it a two. Nice idea, but not so good on taste. A total waste of some good cream which could have been used in the dish to give it more flavor. I used less of the ingredents than suggested, way less than a handful, and thought it was over seasoned. I do like the idea of a pie and would not repeat this dish unless I changed the"
