This was an absolutely awesome recipe!! I made it for company and everyone just raved. I used 2 heaping tsps. of cayenne. That makes it pleasantly hot but we like hot and spicy food so we loved it. In addition, I used flank steak,and left it in the marinade for 4 hours.It was as tender as it can be. I also added some snow peas and some julienned...

Nov 14, 2011 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

This makes an absolutely awesome soup!! I am asked to make this all the time and it is so filling and delicious. It freezes beautifully so I always have it on hand. Don't forget to shave some parmesian cheese over the top of each serving, get a slice of ciapatta bread and just pig out. I cannot believe that more haven't commented because it is t...

Reviewed Bacon-Wrapped Double Pork Meatloaf

Nov 10, 2011 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I was skeptical about an all-pork meatloaf. I figured it would turn out like a hockey puck that could be kicked up and down the street without harm. I do like pork, though, so I tried it and WOW. What a pleasant surprise!! It was juicy and tender and, oh, so flavorful. Spices were right-on. I couldn't find the bratwurst Aida recommended so us...

Reviewed Rum Chica Rum Chicken

Oct 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The marinade was excellent. It was perfect for the chicken, however, the recommended cooking time of 10 minutes per side was way way off. It came out like shoe leather. Next time I will reduce the cooking time substantially and I know I will have a winner.""

Reviewed Slow Cooker Shredded Pork

Aug 2, 2011 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

This was an awesome recipe!! I used boneless pork butt. It was cooked to perfection in 6 - 6.5 hours on low. I could not believe how delicious the meat was. It literally melted in your mouth. The sauce had the perfect amount of sweetness even though I cut back on the sugar by about a third. Next time, I will cut the sugar by half. There was a"

Reviewed Avocado and Papaya Salad

Apr 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Awesome combination of ingredients. I just added some crumbled feta cheese and it was so delicious. My lime was very big so I needed to add a little more olive oil to counter the tang a bit. Other than that, it was perfect. Everyone raved!! I will make it often. Thanks Giada! Your recipes haven't failed me yet."

This was awesome soup! I made it with homemade chicken broth and it was out of this world. I added more beans and increased the meatballs by 50%. Family and friends ask me to make this recipe for them to freeze so that they will have a supply around when I am not. It's that good. Thank you, Rachael. "
