The chicken was absolutely delicious. Well spiced, moist and juicy. Do use the thighs as the recipe suggests, the chicken breasts might get a bit dry. For some reason, the sauce bit didn't work. We tried to make part of the marinade a sauce, like the recipe says, but the spices didn't seem to cook well. We just had the baked chicken, and it was de"

While I would give the potato stuffing five stars, the dough just didn't work for us. My husband and I followed the recipe, but the dough was a bit dry and hard to work with. Since we had invited people over for dinner, we improvised. We had some Pillsbury's rolled pie crusts in the freezer. We used those in place of the dough, assembled the samos"

Absolutely perfect !! Baked this cake for my father's birthday and everyone loved it. So rich and moist. For the cake, I used Lindt 70 percent chocolate, and for the glaze, I used Lindt Intense Orange. The orange flavor mixed really well with the honey. Perfectrecipe, don't change a thing !!"

Made this sauce for lunch today and everyone loved it. Very easy and healthy! I would double the sauce quantity next time,as the sauce serves a maximum of three people. And everyone wanted seconds :). I served the sauce over whole wheat pasta, and sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top. For those who have never roasted garlic before, google it, it "

Very simple and tasty! I wouldn't change anything about the recipe. I used readymade ghee which worked just fine, and I used 4 chicken breasts instead of six. Served it in a bowl over brown rice. Very wholesome and everyone enjoyed it! "

Baked this cake for my father's birthday. So tasty. I used all purpose flour which worked just fine. I didn't have two cake tins of the same size, so I used one big one, and thought I would cut it through the middle. The baking time increased to 60 minutes, and when I tried to slice it through the middle, the top part of the cake crumbled into 4 p"

This recipe is amazing, and so easy. They were a hit at my party. We like our drinks sweeter, so I added some more pineapple chunks, and some Tropicana Pineapple juice, till it was sweetened to our liking.

I made the hummus for a family get together, and served it with pita crisps. I followed the recipe. the only addition I had to make was one tablespoon of olive oil. The sauteed red pepper adds great flavour. I also made the tahini myself, it is really easy, I just googled it. Everyone loved it :)

Dec 12, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Good recipe when you want to put together something quick. I, unfortunately, over boiled the pasta so it became too soft. But the flavour was great. I didn't have any Pecorino Romano cheese, so I used Parmesan instead.

Reviewed Italian Chicken Sticks

Dec 12, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Great recipe. To cut down the fat, instead of using butter, I dredged the chicken sticks in flour (1 cup seasoned with salt and pepper), dipped them in eggs ( 2 eggs beaten with 1 Tbs of water) and then dipped them into the bread crumb mixture. I fried them lightly in 3 tablespoons of EVOO and baked them. Turned out so well. I am sure it tastes even...

I love it :). Unfortunately, I didn't have any strawberries, which I am sure would've made it tastier. Instead, I melted 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, and mixed it with the milk. It gave the smoothie a festive flavour :). Also, instead of using orange juice, I used one big whole orange, roughly removed the fiber and seeds, and pureed it with...

I cooked for the first time ever and chose this recipe to make dinner for my family. It turned out very well. I used fresh tomatoes though, blanched (I had to google it), peeled, drained and crushed them myself. I wish the chefs would mention how much salt they use to season. I am new at this, so I had to call my mother to ask her how much would be...
