Reviewed Moroccan Chicken Soup With Apricot Couscous

Feb 22, 2013 in null on Food.com

This was prepared at a cooking class I attended, and wow, IS it full of flavor. The mixture of spices doesn't exactly clean out your sinuses (it's not that spicy hot) but it's a great combo of flavors. The instructor made a small mound of couscous in the middle of a wide bowl and carefully spooned the soup around the edge. With the cilantro and a...

Jan 21, 2013 in null on Food.com

This dish was SO easy. 5 minutes in the pressure cooker and they were cooked to perfection. They were certainly very tasty as is, but next time I would add a teaspoon or butter to the combination. I added some Italian parsley to the top AND grated the orange zest over it when serving it."

Reviewed Lebanese Lentils, Rice and Caramelized Onions (Mujadara

Oct 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Really delicious stuff. The caramelized onions "make" this dish. Next time I think I'd make double the onions because they added so much flavor to the lentils and rice. The latter don't have a tremendous amount of flavor all on their own, but the onions just make it all scrumptious. Thanks, Aarti!""

Loved the Negroni drink. I'd made some kumquat and thyme infused vodka, which is what I used to make this recipe. I liked the fact that this isn't a fruit-sweet drink - it's quite piquant or tart from the Campari (bitters) and totally refreshing for a summer evening. Beautiful color, and very easy to make. I added a bit more sparkling water than ...

Reviewed Grilled Pork Chops with Lemon Shallot Chutney

Aug 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A good friend turned me on to this recipe after having watched Aaron make it on his show. She served it twice within a couple of weeks, once to a group of 18. She likes it that much. And yup, she's absolutely right. Loved it. I served it on some briefly reheated thick slices of pork roast, but my friend has made it only with grilled pork chops. T...

Delicious! I took other's comments and reduced the red pepper flakes, but even making a DOUBLE batch and halving the pepper, it was too spicy - and I like spicy food! It really needs just a pinch. Soup is delicious, though. Has a substantial feel to it, but smooth and tasty. I'd make it again, definitely. I sprinkled some chopped cilantro on top i"

Reviewed Cucumber-Lychee Gazpacho with Feta Crostini

I so enjoy a cold soup during the warm, summer months. LOVED the flavor of this soup with the lychees providing subtle flavor and sweetness. It was SO easy to make - done in about 5 minutes. I didn't serve the crostini with it (just didn't need it or the carbs) and it was fine. I sprinkled the top with just a few of the toasted almonds and a sprig"

Dec 18, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Ah, it was fantastic! But then, I love rice pudding in almost any permutation. This one was unusually creamy. I used orange blossom water (didn't have the rose water) and it was perfect. Also made it with Splenda (I have a diabetic husband) and that was fine too. A great recipe. Do use a larger pot than you really need as boiling or simmering milk...
