Very yummy, even my small kids liked it. I julienned all veggies and used Italian seasoning, even though I had Herbs de Provence on hand. Perfect!! Great job, Giada! For anyone doing Weight Watchers, this is 11 points for 1/6 of the recipe. I think a good portion size is 1/8 of recipe and in this case, it's 8 points."

This was good, but not the best I've had. I think it was missing a taco meat layer... I loved the bean layer - definitely don't skip the chipotle peppers in adobe sauce. They add a special flavor that was my favorite part. I made it 10 hours before my party and the avocado layer was still green. The next day it was brown, so don't make this too mu"

Delicate flavor. I found a yummy way to use all the Greek yogurt I bought! My tip is to not use a whisk to stir the sugar and egg whites... the whisk creates a foam that makes it very hard to know when the sugar is dissolved. "

I've been making fondue for years and this recipe was waaaay too runny. I fixed it by adding 8 oz extra chocolate and 5 marshmallows. Then the consistency was perfect. There are better recipes out there."

Made exactly as asked, but I didn't like the buttermilk taste much. The dish turns out really pretty though. I think I'll sautee some garlic in a little butter and add to it to see if the taste improves. "

Yum!! I used 3-4 cups of cooked rice (big family here) and used Reduced sodium soy sauce. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. It turned out really amazing. "

I was skeptical about the grapes and lemon juice, but it turned out really yummy and my family really liked it."

Reviewed Chicken Teriyaki with Ginger Rice

Apr 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Followed directions exactly how it says. I thought the meat turned out yummy (although nothing spetacular), but the rice was completely flavorless. It lacked salt, was dry and the ginger was very weak. The meat was a good week night main dish (easy, cheap and tasty), but I would not serve it to company... it lacks that "Wow".""

The only changes I made was that I only used 6oz Feta cheese and used Cavatappi pasta (so pretty). It turned out fantastic and all my guests loved it. I'll be making this again and again. It also tastes just as good the next day - just remember to take out of the fridge about 30 minutes before serving to allow the olive oil to melt. Otherwise it ...
