Reviewed perfect rice

Aug 18, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Other than a fresh sprig of thyme because I didn't have any, I followed this recipe exactly using plenty of fresh-ground black pepper. The result was a wonderfully flavorful, and moist rice with a nice burst of freshness from the parsley which I stirred into the dish. This paired very nicely with baked tilapia and Ree Drummond's "Best Green Beans...

Reviewed the best green beans ever

Aug 18, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This evening my daughter had a friend over for dinner who is somewhat picky. I was making baked tilapia with rice and wanted a green vegetable. After my daughter's friend announced that the only green vegetable she ate was canned green beans (ewwwwwww!), I knew I was in trouble. I don't use any canned vegetable other than tomato. So I began researching...

Aug 18, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I don't bake very often, if ever. So I followed the recipe exactly and cooked each batch for 27 minutes. The amount of icing was generous, but half wouldn't have been enough. The icing is so amazing that you could spread it on a shoe and I would eat it. The unfinished cupcakes sat on my counter for several hours as I made dinner, ate dinner, and...

I love authentic Thai food. For me this wasn't as authentic as my favorite Thai restaurant, but it was still very delicious. My 11 year old gobbled up her "Thai Tacos" as I called them to make them sound more familiar to her. I used ground pork rather than turkey and added a 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro in addition to the mint. Since the heat w"

10 minutes is not enough time for the chicken to marinate. I made the recipe exactly as written. My 11 year old gave the sandwich a rating of 7 out of 10, and my husband gave a 6 out of 10 due primarily to the lack of flavor. They are fine, just not fabulous."

Feb 9, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This comes together quickly with store bought, pre-cut and peeled butternut squash. The fried sage is a key ingredient in terms of flavor. After frying, I garnished the soup with the whole leaves and crushed the remaining ones into a small bowl for those who wanted extra. We grilled the Johnsonville three cheese italian style sausage before sli"

I strive to incorporate vegetables in to every meal which is always challenging. My 10 year old daughter liked this so much she called it "candy". Simple and very quick to make. The fresh thyme makes the difference."

Reviewed Low Country Shrimp Chowder

Jun 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This came together quickly and was a great weekday meal with some crusty garlic bread and a small salad. I added a bit of heavy cream, extra Old Bay Seasoning and plenty of black pepper. Perhaps it would be better to think of this recipe as a soup and not a chowder. It is light and perfect for summer."

I really don't know what gingerbella is talking about. The smell while this bread was cooking was fabulous! I made the recipe exactly as written, however I don't own mini-loaf pans, so I just split the batter and made 2 large loaves. I cooked them about an hour and 15 minutes. I forgot to coat the blueberries in flour as toucansr2cool suggeste"

The sauce came together very quickly. Initially I thought there would be way too much sauce for the amount of chicken, but in the end it was perfect. I reduced the sauce on a lower temperature to avoid a big mess on the stove top. Then I used an immersion blender to puree the sauce (after removing my bundle of thyme). The sauce caramelized on "
