Reviewed Cajun Jambalaya

Jul 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The flavor is excellent. I didn't have the onion powder for the seasoning but it still seems to taste good. My only concern is the consistency. I've had so many versions of jambalaya, I'm not sure how dry/wet it is supposed to be. I saw previous reviews that warned of mushy rice so I started with only 2.5 cups of stock and added as I felt it w"

Reviewed Chicken Enchiladas

May 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This came out well but the amount of certain ingredients seem off. I had about 1/4 lb. less chicken than the recipe called for, yet I had a lot of filling leftover. I even used a measuring cup to be sure I was using 1/4 cup per tortilla. I could probably make at least 4 more enchiladas with the leftover filling. Also, I don't think 1.5 cups of"

I think this recipe is great. I suspect my stovetop just isn't good for preparing meats because I always have trouble. I made 2 of the 4 chops in the pan and they burned on the outside before cooking all the way through. I just wanted to post an alternate cooking method in case anyone else has the same trouble or would like to save a few calories...

Reviewed Pasta with Pumpkin and Sausage

Mar 2, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Excellent, easy and fast recipe. Great for serving to large groups or having a dish to eat for the week. It is a perfect balance of savory with a hint of sweet. The only change I would consider is using the entire cans of chicken broth and pumpkin and increasing cream to create more sauce. I don't like overly saucy pastas, but the penne soaked u...

Feb 1, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I typically have trouble cooking meats and most main dishes, but this was one of the best things I have ever made. Very easy, yet because everything is from scratch, you feel very accomplished. I used brandy instead of cognac and it was fine. I thankfully had long-stem matches so lighting it was quite safe. The only change I would make is to ...

Jan 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Mine came out almost like the photo. A little of the topping stuck but was easy to fix. Not sure if it helped, but after turning them over to cool, I tapped on each one with a heavy utensil and unmolded after 30 minutes. Tastewise, I wanted more pineapple and the almond flavor was more prominent. The topping was delicious though. I might try thi...

Jan 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Mine came out looking just like the picture, so I think I did everything right. Though it tasted fine, it just didn't have the cornbread texture I wanted. If I try this recipe again, I will adjust the ratio of flour and cornmeal. I suspected by the photo and my final product that this would be the problem and it was. I typically love Ina's recipe...
