What a great curry sauce! I was looking for a recipe to make a Curried Orzo Pasta Salad... and this was perfect! I ended up using a Mango Chutney by Sukhi's since I couldn't find the same brand she used and then tossed in celery, scallions, and roasted cauliflower into the pasta salad. I love this! I will definitely be making this again and will m"

Jan 14, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So, I read all the reviews prior and changed the recipe to include an egg, 2tbs extra butter, and a dash of sugar for the dough. Well, it worked. The consistency was right, but the recipe says to bake for 8-10 minutes. Mine burned after 6min 30sec! The few that were cut big and didn't burn, I made into the sandwich cookies. Meh...They were ok. Thi"

I absolutely love how simple, quick & easy this recipe is! I ended up using Lingonberry preserves and fresh Blackberries because it's what I had on hand and then fully covered it in raw cane sugar... it was so delicious! I fully intend on making this with plums like her actual recipe... but I do have to say, using berries cuts back on prep time! ;)...

All the work is worth the end result. Definitely have something good on TV while whisking the milk haha! Other than that, it's an easy recipe. I'm a huge green bean casserole fan and am so happy that this healthier and lower sodium version (compared to the old school canned recipe) tastes amazing! I think next time I may add more milk to make a cr"

Oct 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I wasn't completely sure what to expect and how it would turn out, but two thumbs up! Really great soup for fall! I did switch the mushrooms to Portabellos since I love those and added some grated Parmesan to thicken the soup. The fresh squeezed lemon really freshens it up so that it doesn't seem so heavy. I also, topped it with mascarpone at the "

I really love this panini. It tastes so fresh, is hearty, and simple to make as well. It doesn't take long to make this recipe and is perfect for a week night dinner. It's also great with a small tart side salad: Arugula tossed with fresh lemon, evoo, garlic, s&p!"

Reviewed Gnocchi With Squash and Kale

Oct 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I loved this recipe... however, my gnocchi were a tad too soft for my liking. I think I would cook them separately next time (and al dente) and just toss in the mix before toasting in the oven."

Reviewed Roasted Marrow Bones

Oct 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So this was my first time making marrow bones myself... I usually just order them at restaurants. I however made the mistake of using a flat baking sheet instead of one with sides. Don't you go and make this same mistake... or you will be cleaning fat out of the bottom of your oven so that it doesn't smoke every time you turn it on! Haha! Anyways."

Haha! Soooo not a healthy meal, but definitely comfort food! We loved this recipe, but will only have it once in a while so we don't double in size! I would still recommend making this! ;)"

Amazing!!! I picked up perfect cuts of halibut from whole foods and some fresh spinach and bean sprouts to cook for the base... and was so so happy with this meal! The broth is so fresh tasting!"

So perfect for fall! I added chicken, garbanzos & avocados to make it a hearty salad for a meal. Love this!!! This recipe is being drafted into my regular menu line-up!"

Reviewed Curried Chicken and Rice Soup

Sep 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So tasty!!! I actually changed it a little by using barley instead of rice since that is what I had on hand and then didn't blend them. I think I would add more broth next time."

Delicious! I prefer it sweeter, so next time I'll add more balsamic & honey as well as cut it into wedges so all the goodness balances on them better."
