Reviewed Perfect Pot Roast

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

A perfect sunday dinner. Such a comfort food that it practically warms your soul. The roast was very tender. I had a 3 pound roast and cooked it for about 3 and 1/2 hours. The meat came out as if it had been in a slow cooker for 8 hours. For me pot roast is all about the tenderness, and it fell apart as she said it would. I loved the subtle sweet...

Very tender. I had a 3 pound roast and cooked it for about 3 and 1/2 hours. The meat came out just as tender as if it had been in a slow cooker for 8 hours. For me pot roast is all about the tenderness, and it fell apart as she said it would. I looked the subtle sweetness the red wine added.

Also, another reviewer mentioned the...

So easy! I served it with homemade whipped cream, which everyone concluded was essential. I hate to bake but love eating baked goods, so this easy recipe was made for me. Took about 4 minutes to prepare. I'll hold on to the recipe!""

Reviewed Rigatoni with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

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

This recipe's flavor is very subtle and understated. Marscapone is not an entirely flavorful cheese, and lends a sweet flavor to the dish. It's not that this is a bad recipe, you just have to enjoy a more mild taste profile. I tried adding more garlic, salt, pepper, roasted tomatoes, but in the end I was changing the recipe from what it was inten...

Made this recipe tonight, and it was great. However, I wish there was less butter in it, as there was more than 3 sticks in all. It kind of makes you think, woah really? It honestly needs that much to be good? Next time I make this I'm going to try to cut down the butter. Also I will definitely be adding more veggies. Mushrooms, asparagus, and ma...

Reviewed Cucumber Salad with Dill

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

I took a peeler, and peeled the cucumber into dozens of thin layers, stopping before I hit the seeds. I toped the layers on top of each other and sprinkled dill throughout. It made the salad seem lighter, and more of an unexpected presentation. I recommend doing the same!""

Reviewed Mac and Cheese

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

Really good mac n cheese! The tomatoes were refreshing and helped me from going into a complete cheese-coma. This is a bit controversial, even in my own family, but I do not bake the dish. I personally like a stronger cheese flavor, and I found baking it gives the cheese a sweet flavor instead of a really cheesy one. I recommend trying it! As an ...
