Reviewed roasted butternut squash with pecan ginger glaze

Sep 30, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Roasting brings out the natural sweetness of the butternut squash. Not to mention, there is natural sugar in the honey and maple syrup used to make the glaze. Therefore, the added sugar is not necessary.
Food Network really should create another area to comment on a recipe WITHOUT rating it... unless the reviewer made it, AS WRITTEN, the...

I'm not usually one to comment on a recipe if I haven't made it as written. However, having learned what I've learned from watching FN, I feel as though it's important to comment on the seasoning in this recipe.
First, FN has taught me to start cooking potatoes in COLD, SALTED water. I'm not using caps for anger, merely for emphasis. This...

To Cmermon: the recipe clearly states that it feeds 4 (FOUR) people, NOT 8. Furthermore, the steaks are 1 lb EACH, and 1.5 inches THICK. That's a lot of meat and, including the sides, both of those should easily feed 4 "normal" people. This is the problem with people in the U.S. They eat too much in the wrong proportion and don't get enough exercise....

These were excellent. I think mine cooked too fast, though. I'm not going to fault Marcela or the recipe like some people do, however. My husband and I don't complain too much about food, particularly the first time we eat it. Food doesn't have to look perfect to taste good, although we do eat with our eyes first. We aren't fussy food snobs, though....

Reviewed beef tacos with salsa verde

Jun 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this last night and it was excellent! Not only that, it was very easy to prepare. I used a jar of Frontera medium salsa verde and it gave the meat a nice little kick. I didn't make tacos because I didn't feel like buying tortillas that we don't normally use anyway. I shredded the beef in the sauce and served it like that with Marcella's spicy...

Aquaria, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. There is no need for aggressive posts in a comment section intended for reviewing recipes. This person certainly isn't the first to have a misconception and, I assure you, they won't be the last.
I'm actually shocked b/c FN refuses to post legitimate recipe reviews, then they turn around...

Food Network should really consider allowing people to add a comment without rating the recipe. Now Guy's recipe is rated 1 star because the only comment about his recipe has nothing to do with his recipe! Sissy rated it one star because she can't navigate your website, not because she's actually made Guy's recipe. Hopefully, my five star rating will...
