Good flavor. I don't put beans in Chili so I left it out and also if you take corn tortillas and pulse them in a food processor you can make your own masa. "

Jul 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I had to modify a little because I didn't have 5 Roma tomatoes so I used 2 small cans of no salt diced tomatoes. I also used Shiraz red wine and cooked it longer because my Short ribs were thicker cuts. Because the Short ribs were thicker I had to add a cup more broth to cover. That is the trick to make sure the meat is covered and to blend the sa"

This is a good one and tasty. The answer to your question, why do you preheat, is because you are supposed to sear your chops on both sides and then let them finish cooking in the oven until they are cooked through.

I love Hungry Girl's point of view of making less fattening food for people but wish there was more episodes that focus on FRESH INGREDIENTS that are healthy. This recipe is heavily processed as are most of Hungry Girl's food. My idea is to stay close to natural foods as possible but make it tasty.""

Not a fan of this one. It was bland and I took it to a party and left it out for about an hour until it was time to eat and it turned brown. It just did not taste good. Won't be making this one ever again. :("

Alittle dry but overall not bad.

I must have done something wrong because this recipe turned out terrible. I guess I like a more traditional chili.

These were alittle too rich for my taste but if you like a chocolately rich dessert then this one is for you.

I love peanut butter cookies but this one was not my favorite. I guess I like a more traditional peanut butter cookie. If you like peanut butter cookies with a twist then you should definitely try these.

I made these last year for Thanksgiving and am making them this year for Thanksgiving as well. I used brown sugar and instead of frying them on the stovetop, I put them in the oven to crisp up. My family loved them.

I thought these were fantastic. Although I didn't have ground chicken, I used ground turkey instead. Also Giada used a ton of rosemary for my taste so I cut it back. Overall this one was a winner and besides the rosemary ,I wouldn't change a thing.
