PERFECTION! This was my first time attempting to "fry" anything and it was a success. I will be making these again and again. ""

OH MY GOSH! BEST steak I have EVER had. I will never make steak another way. Yes, your kitchen gets smokey. Just open some windows and turn the vent on. Trust me, a little smoke is WORTH it for this! Fleur de Sel is a MUST. I think that has a lot to do with why it is so amazing. I didn't make the sauce, my hubby is not a blue cheese fan. I just m...

Reviewed French Onion Dip

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

I make this dip all the time, and it is SO good! I always get rave reviews. I let my onions carmelize longer than 20 minutes.. I don't normally time it but I wait until they are a deep golden brown color. I add the shallots and garlic toward the end of the process, as the recipe states. I also half this and it is a pretty good amount. I serve wit...

SO good. I had never made any type of mexican/tortilla soup before and I have clearly found my go to recipe! I read the ingredients wrong and bought a can of crushed tomatoes, rather than crushing them myself but it worked. Delish! ""

This is a great recipe for a chicken chili... I did use more chili powder than called for but that is because I always use that much in all my chili dishes, we prefer it that way. Also used baby spinach instead of the chard. As for the ground chicken, it was my first time cooking with it, and I can see how the flavors (esp the fennnel) are meant ...

Reviewed Not Your Mama's Green Bean Casserole

Nov 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is such a great recipe if you want to stray from the typical green bean casserole with the canned everything! INCLUDING the french fried onions! I have made this a couple times now and did the onions per the recipe. I just turned the temp down to 450 and rotated them about every 5-10 minutes. Works for me. I personally thing subbing the cann...

Even though Giada is a genius, goddess, etc.. I did add/change it just a little. First I browned some diced italian chicken sausage links (Archer Farms brand), removed and set aside. In the same pot, I proceeded with the rest of the steps, using 3 carrots and 3 celery stalks, and a 28oz can of diced tomatoes and at the end I threw one bunch of ch...
