Reviewed Chicken Cacciatore

Aug 6, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Giada's recipe for Chicken Cacciatore is absolutely the best!
I always thought this dish was OK but when I followed Giada's recipe OK turned into outstanding! The smashed Parmesan potatoes were good too even without the butter and cream!
This recipe will please your family and guests.
Thank you Giada!!!"

The ingredients are good and the chicken is moist but this recipe is bland. Perhaps light equals bland? I tried to kick it up with other herbs but it did not help. I suggest two cans of beans and regular chicken broth to begin with."

Reviewed The Ultimate Potato Gratin

Jul 26, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This dish is fantastic! Everyone at our large holiday dinners loves these potatoes!
I will say that the preparation takes much more time than you might expect and the level might be more than intermediate. Also be sure to cook this dish thoroughly. Nothing like having the dish on the table with hard potatoes so test the potatoes with a toothpick...

Easy is moderate and so on.The meatloaf is very tasty and moist. I found the tomato relish on the sweet side but my gourmet cooking friends loved it! Perfect for"

Reviewed Perfect Pot Roast

Jun 4, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love pot roast and over the years I have made many different versions of this comfort food. Usually used garlic, thyme and red wine in my cooking. However I followed this recipe to the letter and everyone said it was the best pot roast they have ever had and I agreed!"

Reviewed Cranberry-Pineapple Gelatin Salad

Nov 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The recipe calls for 1 cup of boiling water and 1/2 cup of cold water. Way too little and it would turn out like a brick. I suggest following the instructions on the Jell-O package for the amount of water. The extra 1/2 pack plain gelatin compensates for the Cranberries and Pineapple.

The only other item I added to the Cream Cheese...

OMG! This is the best Chili recipes I have ever tried. Just follow the directions and use recommended ingredients and you will not be disappointed.
