Reviewed Monday-Night Red Beans and Rice

Jul 23, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was really tasty and easy to throw together on a busy weeknight. There were no leftovers! I used chorizo sausage and one can each of rinsed black beans and cannelini beans because that's what I had in the pantry. Great family dish which will be added to the weeknight rotation!"

May 27, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Made this as a side dish tonight for dinner. I had gotten two beautiful fairly large yellow summer squash at the market this weekend with this recipe in mind. The stuffing was really good; especially with the addition of the walnuts. It gave the dish a nice crunch and a meaty flavor. I wish I had doubled the stuffing recipe because I just had just"

Feb 3, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Wow - this was amazing! I did as some previous reviewers did and roasted all the peppers, onions, and garlic under the broiler. It definitely adds depth of flavor to the dish. It simmered for 2 1/2 hours and the consistency was perfect - not at all 'soupy'. The pork melted in our mouths. I served it with herbed rice, adding fresh cilantro at the "

These meatballs were absolutely amazing! I wasn't sure what to expect and they just blew me away. I didn't change a thing in the recipe - they're perfect. Give this recipe a try; you won't be sorry! "

Reviewed Salisbury Steak

Jan 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I was looking to do something different with my meatloaf mix, so I thought I'd give this recipe a try because it got good reviews. I'm glad I did - It was hearty and oh so good! This was my first time making Salisbury Steak, although have eaten it many times before. All of the prep work is definitely worth it; it was like a blast from my child...

Reviewed Grilled Chicken with Basil Dressing

Jul 20, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I've been making this recipe for several years and it is one of my very favorite chicken dishes. The longer you marinate the chicken, the better! And, the basil dressing is so fresh and pairs perfectly with the grilled chicken - which always turns out very, very moist. Just this past weekend, I used this exact recipe with a loin of pork, and it wa"

Reviewed Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Jul 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I made this today for dessert. The flavor of this dish was excellent; the strawberries were so sweet, which contrasted nicely against the tart rhubarb. The crumble was absolutely delicious, too. I would have given this recipe 5 stars, but found that it was very runny - and I followed the directions exactly. Other than that, I would highly reco"

Reviewed Challah French Toast

Oct 31, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This was the best french toast ever! The flavor was just wonderful with the orange and honey, and the Challah bread was the perfect vehicle for this dish. My only suggestion would be not to soak the bread for the full 5 minutes because the bread wants to fall apart. This will definitely stay on my weekend breakfast rotation!

Reviewed Perfect Roast Chicken

Sep 30, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I've made many roast chickens in my time, but this was by far the best roast chicken I've ever made! The chicken was very fllavorful and juicy, the veggies were roasted to perfection, and the gravy was just excellent! This meal brought me back to my childhood and reminded me of my Mom's cooking. This will be the only recipe for roast chicken I...
