Reviewed Sauteed King Crab in White Wine

Aug 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was great! I made this recipe this evening. About 2 lbs is good for 2 people. After the oil I added about an entire bulb of peeled whole garlic cloves. I cooked that for about 2 minutes or until fragrant. I left the crab in the shell as a previous member advised but I cut the crab through the middle with scissors before I added them in "

Really good and easy! I like to add chopped tomatoe and avocado and sprinkle some salt and lime. Perfect! Not making the chicken is the way to go! I didn't add the onions nor radishes. Scallions can be substitued instead or nothing at all. Also,I didn't add any cheese to cut calories. You don't need to make the tostadas. They sell them in...

Very good & easy recipe. I froze it for jam because I had a lot leftover. Recommended!""

Dec 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This make for a good presentation but I won't make it again. The cheese should be cut into half the size, it was too much goat cheese per bite. Another draw back is that the oil dripped out of the hands when taking a bite. Serve with napkins or plates! It was good but not spectacular. Very easy to make though.""

Super good! this recipe will be a staple for my holiday meals. Only thing is that I added more butter, milk, and cheese. Salt is important. It was delicious!""

Good stuff. I got rave reviews.

Next time I'll freeze them for 20 min. before I cook them. I used lettuce instead of arugula and 2 garlic cloves. Easy fun meal""

This was easy and delicious! My mom is being protective over the casserole so that it doesn't finish quickly. I got rave reviews. Only thing it needed was a healthy dose of pepperoncino (crushed red pepper) on the table. "

I gave this a shot and made 2 batches. Our rowdy group loved them so much they were gone so fast! I will make 4 batches next time for a party of 4 or try to figure out how to dillute them, they were super strong with alcohol. I would put 3/4 cup of tequila and 1/2 cup of grand marnier next time. Big hit!"

When I put them on the grill with the husks on, the husks got on fire. I would say pull the husks back and grill the corn on the grill. Then spread the butter mixture on them. Drizzle with a mexican crumbly cheese like oaxaca and sprinkle some mexican cream and chili powder."

These were pretty good & pretty easy. Don't overstuff the jalapenos. Also, if you want to kill some of the jalapeno fire put them in an oven for 5 minutes before you grill them."

This recipe is super good & super easy! It was a big hit at dinner. Totally exceeded all expectations. The romaine was slighlty warm & charred. The bacon, dressing, and blue cheese made for a nice presentation and set the dish off. Most of the flavor came from the toppings. Don't let this one pass you by! You won't regret it and it's diffic"

Jul 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This rice was hands down great! I substituted chicken broth for water for added flavor. A very important step before the rice goes in the pan is to rinse it for 1-2 full minutes. This ensures fluffiness without mushiness. Also, after the water comes to a boil put a lid on the pot and put it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. No peekin"

Easy recipe. Good results. My mom does this without peeling the potatoes or boiling them for a quicker turnout. Is there a trick to making the chorizo crumbly without continuously breaking it up?"

I tried this recipe. It didn't turn out quite right. It also doesn't state how long to cook the empanadas for or what manner to cook them. I cooked them for 30 min in the oven. They came out hard and tasted like cornmeal. Maybe the intention was to fry them or put them on a skillet. "

These were tasty little guys but spicy! I could hardly stand eating them because of the heat. I will try blanching them or baking them next time to reduce the jalapeno heat. Some of my cheese oozed out so next time I will try wrapping each one tight with aluminum or at least putting aluminum on the grill. I used smoked bacon. I will definatel"

This was a super easy salad to make. It was very heavy. One recommendation is that you cut all things into small pieces, versus in quarters like they recommend. Also, a colorful pasta like veggie mac would have gave the pasta good color. I also recommend making it the day prior so that the flavors can blend with each other (hold the beef and l"
