Don't give recipes one star b/c you cannot print it. It is unfair to the chef and you are giving a bad review based on something that has nothing to do with the actual recipe.

Jan 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

While the roast process was great I felt the actual bird lacked flavor. It was juicy but not flavorful enough. I tried the barefoot contessa herb butter turkey and thought the flavor was much better than this recipe. It is also much easier to prepare and just as juicy. I recommend you try that recipe first before claiming this is the best turkey...

I normally love Giada recipes but this one is a complete fail. Don't bother with it! Followed recipe exactly and as many others commented once I tried frying, they fell apart and disintegrated. She makes it look so easy on the show but it is not easy. I am an avid baker and never had difficulty and bad result like I did with this.

Absolutely delicious, easy to make, and healthy. I make it exactly as the recipe states and comes out perfectly every time. It is filling and tastes even better the next day.

Nov 26, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

One word to sum up this recipe....GROSS. The combination of goat cheese with wheat berries and strawberries plus mint and orange juice was terrible. None of the flavored blended well together and the goat cheese over powered everything. It wasn't just me who felt this way as each person in my house tried it and no one liked it. I rinsed out the wheat...

Sorry Giada but Ina is the queen of roast chicken and this recipe pales in comparison to any of Ina's roast chicken recipes. I followed recipe exactly and my chicken was still undercooked and had to cook an additional 15 minutes. While the chicken was okay, the amount of extra work to make the sauce and baste it the entire time plus how long it had...

My favorite chocolate cake recipe! It is sooo good and worthy of all of these glowing reviews! I have made this cake several times and it always comes out great. It is a crowd pleaser and for any special occasion friends and family always request that I make this cake. The best part is the creamy frosting. I also really like this recipe because it...

This episode has to be one of my favorites from Ina, I make every recipe from this episode and they are all delicious!

Great recipe with a few tweaks. Let me start off by saying this is not a cheap recipe to make. I spent $12 just on the sweet Italian turkey sausage and goat cheese. Since I only bought a pound of turkey sausage I mixed it with lean ground turkey and it was delicious. I soaked the noodles and baked just as the recipe states but when I took it out to...

Horrible recipe and a waste of my money and time. Only baked for 20 minutes and they were still burned, dry, and tasteless. I threw them away and did not even bother icing them. Do not bother with this recipe!

Oct 11, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was just okay, a bit on the flavorless side as there was not enough sauce for the pasta and I followed the recipe exactly. Her shrimp scampi recipe is just as easy as this one and much better tasting so I suggest you try that one instead.

This was delicious, easy to make, and healthy. I cannot ask for anything more in a recipe. My family loved it and were left wanting more. It makes the whole house smell delicious. The only thing I will change next time is the amount of salt in the lemon sauce as it was too salty for our taste. Also, I will be making more sauce next time because we...

This recipe was just okay, when I cook I like everything to be delicious and worth the trouble, not the case with this dish.

One word for these crepes- DECADENT! They were delicious and so different from the typical crepes you find at a crepe maker. Batter was easy to make. While it took a few times to master the flipping without breaking the crepes I did get the hang of it. Made no difference as my family ate them up, even the broken ones! Thanks again Giada!!"

Not a fan of this cake. It wasn't terrible but it definitely wasn't good either. If I am going to take the time to make something from scratch it better be worth the work and this cake just wasn't worth the time. My cake was also dense and I followed recipe exactly. I was expecting something light with a hint of lemon and instead I had a dense fla"

Can't believe there aren't more reviews for this great recipe. Love would be an understatement for how my boyfriend feels about this tea. I think obsessed would be a more fitting word.

While these cookies are very good there are 2 points I can't believe no other reviewer has pointed out. 1- chocolate covered espresso beans are very costly. I paid almost $7 for the amount needed for this recipe. That is a lot to spend on one ingredient. 2- I finely chopped the beans in a food processor just as noted on the recipe but the tiny pie"
