Reviewed Watermelon Salad with Mint Leaves Recipe : Paula Deen : Food Network

Jul 21, 2014 on

This salad is really good - as long as you eat it within a few hours of putting it together. I made a big portion for myself for dinner last night and it was so delicious. I admit to omitting the onions as I am not a fan of them raw. The texture of the watermelon juxtapositioned against the texture of the feta was really interesting and the salty...

This recipe is absolutely amazing. Be sure to double the compote recipe, my husband and I couldn't get enough of it. The pancakes are so tasty they are still good leftover and cold. Do yourself a favor and make this recipe soon!

Jun 23, 2014 on

I lived for years in the low country in North Carolina and often ordered shrimp and grits at restaurants during that time. Now that we no longer live in that area we make this recipe in order to re-live our time in the southern coast. I make this recipe as often as we can afford the shrimp and sometimes even make the dish without the shrimp because...

May 1, 2014 on

I made this last night and it was a huge success! And so easy! I did add a Mexican coke to the liquid in the slow cooker as I thought that the amount of liquid was insufficient for a slow cooker recipe. After about 7 hours of cooking my roast was falling off the bone tender so using a pair of tongs I easily shredded the pork and left it in the slow...

Apr 7, 2014 on

This was really really good. Super tasty and delicious. I did make some alterations: I didn't read the directions correctly and added the sliced lemons to the cooking dish. Also, was unsure about the cooking method so I browned the chicken in a cast iron skillet before cooking at 425 for 35 minutes. Then squeezed more lemon juice over the dish....

This was so good! Reviewers have mentioned that it is too lemony, but it is perfect over seafood. I think it would be great over poultry, too. It is a sauce that requires your attention a little bit but not as finicky as a hollandaise. Give it a shot! Definitely worth it to impress your guests! Also, there are only 2 in our family and this makes...

Reviewed Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Jul 7, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I made this recipe last night for lunches this week and I must say that it tastes just like the tomato basil soup I used to get at this little French bistro I used to visit regularly! This soup has a delicious rich taste and was easy to prepare. Unfortunately, I only had about 3 cups of fresh basil but this did not adversely affect the taste of "

This was sooooo good!!! I made my blueberries with bourbon instead of rum because that is what I had on hand, but otherwise followed the directions and it turned out really really well! It's easy and definitely a great dessert."

Jan 4, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is by far the best tuna noodle casserole I have ever eaten, certainly the best I've ever prepared! And it is relatively simple! My husband and I follow the recipe entirely except we omit the horseradish, as it isn't something we like. Otherwise, this is seriously delicious comfort food!"
