And why is it called New York Crumb Cake? Because Entenmann's opened in Brooklyn in 1898. I had to poke around for a while to find that out. I grew up eating Pennsylvania Crumb Cake. There are quite a few people of German descent over there.

I'll put my money on this recipe:

Tomorrow, I'm making a blueberry breakfast casserole from Yums. I've made many variations, so this one will probably be fine.

[quote=TabulaRasa;43460820]I make tons of things off allrecipes. I always read the comments/user reviews to get an idea of how the recipe had worked out for most who've used it.

I always have to chuckle at the reviews that are all, "Terrible recipe! Do not recommend!" And then you read further, and they're like, "I don't eat dairy, so I subbed cashews for the cheese, and used beef instead of chicken. My family doesn't like spices, so i ommitted the seasoning mentioned and just used a little garlic and salt. Directions were for oven, but I made it in the slow cooker instead. It turned out terrible, I'd never make this recipe again!!!"[/QUE]
I know! This is what people complain about.

I rarely follow a recipe exactly, except for baking. I can look at a recipe and figure out substitutions that will work. But if I do make changes and it doesn't come out, I have only myself to blame. When u find a new recipe online, I do what someone up thread mentioned, I Google the recipe and compare 3-4 examples from different sites to find the correct one

I've been using online recipes for years. Over the years - I've found that some recipes by certain chefs (or at least recipes that have the chefs' names on them) are much better than those from other chefs. One recent favorite of mine is Anne Burrell. I tried these 2 recipes within the last year - and both were .

Peach Crisp Recipe : Anne Burrell : Food Network

Bucatini All'Amatriciana Recipe : Anne Burrell : Food Network

The second recipe is a good example of not trying the recipe if you don't have the right ingredients (or taking any reviews at face value if they haven't used the stated ingredients). You need guanciale to make a proper Bucatini All'Amatriciana. If you don't have guanciale - don't try to make this recipe. Make something else. FWIW - I love this recipe so much I buy guanciale on line so I can make it 3-4 times a year. Robyn

Like any recipe , no matter where you get it, some are better than others. I use 2 or 3 favorite websites. The recipes I have found that work best for me are canning and jam recipes, but they are not the only ones I enjoy. My favorite recipes do come from those cook books you buy from church or other fund raising events.

I do this, too. I've found some really good recipes online and some bad ones. Reading the reviews or comments (if it's a blog) are really helpful to avoid problems.

My cooking skills aren't that good, so I pretty much have to follow the recipe. Thanks to the internet, though, I'm getting better now that I can research and find out more information. I like to know why things have to be done a certain way. I tend to want to skip steps if it looks like too much work because I get back aches from standing at the counter too long. Cookbooks don't tell you the why, but food articles on the internet do!
