Reviewed Pork Tenderloin with Apple Cider Reduction

Sep 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Quick and tasty. The only alteration I made was to add a shot of bourbon to the reduction. I've made this several times and it comes out very tender. The best part is that it only takes 20 minutes to get dinner on the table.""

Aug 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were seriously good eats. Dark rum is not an option, it is mandatory. The only comment I have is the salt level is very prominent. This was probably developed using Diamond Kosher which is slightly bigger than Morton Kosher. If you're using anything other than Diamond then you might want to cut the salt by 10-25%. I was thinking of driz...

I've made this about 5 times. Works well with any white fish as well as shrimp. If you can spare the time, make your own pico de gallo to go with it."

Reviewed Green Deviled Eggs and Ham

May 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These are far superior to the standard deviled eggs. As far as the "chopped herbs", I went with just flat leaf parsley, though you could probably do a mix with cilantro given the presence of avocado. Speaking of avocado, don't make more of these than you can eat in a day. The avocado will turn its usual nasty brown. Fortunately, these usually disa"

Reviewed Beef Stew with Cream Biscuits

Mar 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Okay, I've been making beef stew since the author of this recipe has been in diapers. So I don't need a recipe to make beef stew. Okay, browning the meat is better than my dump and stir method. And the biscuits are easy and really tasty. And the flavors of the beef broth, meat and veggies are better than the cream of whatever soup I used. On second...

Reviewed Baked Potato Soup

Jan 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really wanted to make this but I didn't have any oven proof bowls. I finally figured out I could put the sliced bread, cheese and bacon on a sheet pan to heat/melt the cheese and then top the bowls of soup with the bacon-cheese 'lifeboats'. While my wife prefers a thick, cream based potato soup, I actually liked this better since it wasn't heavy....

Reviewed Perfectly Flaky Pie Crust

Jan 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This pie crust recipe as pretty much infallible. Just remember, if you want to use this for a pie that requires a bottom and top crust, double the recipe. It also helps if you keep your butter in the freezer for pie dough.

Reviewed Prosciutto Standing Rib Roast with Figs

Dec 25, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've grown up with splurging once a year to have prime rib on Christmas Day. This cost about $90 for a meal for 5, but it was well worth it. Very easy to pull together and incredibly tasty in the end. One point to make is that fresh figs are really hard to come by in December. You may wish to substitute new potatoes and make the meal savory instead...

Reviewed White Miso Mussels with Watercress

Dec 12, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Mussels are an easy, quick hitter for me. I've used wine before, but not ale. The addition of ginger is key to this dish as it puts out a nice punch of flavor. I used a summer ale for this, but I would imagine you could use pretty much any type of lager and it would work well.

Reviewed Chili Beef Stir-Fry with Scallions and Snow Peas

Oct 25, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Loved this. Really easy to throw together at the last minute and very tasty. I would warn people that 2T of chili garlic is mighty hot. I found the heat perfect for me, but the rest of the family thought it pushing the envelope. Even so, everyone still had second helpings as it was just that good.
