Yes you are right, they are expensive! But they are grown in Italy in soils filled with volcanic ash. How about 2 cans of San Marzano and 2 cans of plum tomatoes?

I made this once, for my daughter's 21st birthday. It was super labor intensive but super and duper delish! I'm making it again for that same daughter, for her 30th birthday. When I made it before I wasn't as good a cook as I am now, so all the steps took me 14-forevers. But it still came out great. I used a turkey roasting pan, served it for dinner,...

Two things: One, you don't want to overpower this beautiful cut of meat with too much seasoning; and Two, the recipe says to use salt and pepper.

Replied to slow-cooker spiced nuts

Dec 20, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Here's an update. I couldn't find my crock pot, so after I made everything and mixed it together, I put heavy duty foil on a large cookie sheet, sprayed liberally with cooking spray, and cooked the nuts for about 30 min. on 250 degrees. They came out kind of in "one sheet" but I let them cool and they easily broke apart. Took them to work for the...

This looks absolutely delish! Can I use a different combination of nuts? Do the nuts stick to foil? Is 1/8 t of cayenne spicy enough? I will definitely make and update this post with the results.

Oct 19, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Pretty starchy, including the high-starch peas. Never cooked gnocchi before, but knew I couldn't go wrong with potato balls! Unfortunately, they were sticky, heavy. Lots of leftovers. Best thing I did was reheat, put on toast, topped with a fried egg for breakfast. That was better than the original supper.

I don't get where it says you have to put it in and take it out of the oven over and over. Sear the chicken and put it in the oven to cook.

It was pretty good. I'm an experienced cook and this took more than 2 hours to prepare. I had a bunch of heirloom tomatoes from my garden so, with the help of my food mill, I made my own tomato sauce. I also added two bunches of fresh raw spinach into the cheese mixture. I felt it would be too much of a gut-bomb without it. I couldn't find ziti, so...

It's a good thing you're here to tell Bobby Flay what to do. A burrito is encased, a taco is folded. A crunchy taco is American. An authentic Mexican taco is soft, using a corn or a flour tortilla. Bobby's fish tacos are made with small flour tortillas. This is a taco.

This is so good! It makes a huge amount, so I'll be making it for the 4th of July. My mom's is just about like this except she would cut very sharp cheddar cheese into little cubes and add it. Sometimes she would add cubed ham. After the party, it's good the next day too!

It was really good, and fed us for days! It does take longer than you would think because there are lots of steps. I used 4 whole eggs -not just egg whites since I love eggs. I also jazzed up the sauce based on a fried rice recipe from an Asian friend of mine. Along with the soy, I added a touch of sesame oil, garlic chili paste, oyster sauce, fish...

Don't post your opinion if you haven't bothered to make the dish. This forum is supposed to be helpful, your post is not even close to that. Who cares if you're are going to grate an onion into it?

Mar 27, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I'm thinking you made a different recipe than the one listed here. The leeks are easy: three bunches, cut lengthwise. You roast them that way so there is more surface area to roast. So you just take those three bunches of cut leeks that you roasted and put them in a blender. Gives the butter a wonderful sweet oniony taste. Not that hard. And there...

I make these all the time. The first time - last fall - it was very time consuming, but I've got it down to a science now. Store bought chips for one thing, although I have made lots of homemade tortilla chips in my day and they are wonderful. The first time I made this, I made the cheese sauce. I didn't like it much, it was grainy and made a mess"
