Reviewed Roasted Vegetable Meatloaf with Balsamic Glaze

Nov 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Wow. The glaze was amazing, slightly crunchy, and the vegetables gave the meatloaf great depth of flavor. I will be making this again and again!"

I really enjoyed this dish, but my husband thought that the inside of the relleno was soggy. The red pepper sauce was very tasty."

Reviewed Spice-Rubbed Chicken Breast Tacos with Grilled Poblanos, BBQ Onions and Coleslaw

Jun 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

We just made these last night, and oh boy, were they delicious! I substituted regular chili powder because that was what I had on hand, and it was still unbelievable. I was a little leery of the coleslaw, but it added the perfect tangy mouth feel to the taco, which was needed with the creaminess of the guacamole."

My husband couldn't stop eating this potato salad. Different from others I've had, but extremely tasty! "

Reviewed Chicken Milanese with Tomato and Fennel Sauce

Jun 7, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The sauce is insane. What a fantastic balance of flavors, and it isn't too heavy. The chicken came out perfect as well. Well done, Giada!"

Reviewed Tuna and Hummus Sandwiches

Jun 7, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Traditionally, I always love Ina's recipes, and give them 5 stars. This is the first recipe of her's that I've tried that didn't quite live up to the hype. Both the hummus and tuna salad ended up very lemony, so I am cutting the lemon by half to avoid that issue again. Also, I don't like having the garlic overpower the very tasty hummus, so I a"

Reviewed The Ultimate Barbecued Ribs

May 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I also cooked the ribs for an additional 1.5 hours, basting every 30 minutes. Putting them under the broiler was perfect! The ribs came out crispy and sticky. EXCELLENT recipe and will make again and again."

Reviewed Calamari Fritti

Mar 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just made this last night for company and it was amazing! My husband didn't care for the marinara - he said that it was too sweet. The aioli was delicious, and everyone raved about it. The calamari came out crispy, and not rubbery at all. Easy recipe that I will use time and time again.""

Reviewed Turkey Burger

Feb 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Oh my God. SO delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, and it was amazing. The only thing I didn't do was make a tester burger, I didn't really have time to do it with 2 kids under 2:) Flavors are perfect!""

Reviewed Corn Star Raviolis in Sweet Basil Cream Sauce

Jan 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe makes a lot of filling, so I have some left over to freeze. This is a very simple recipe, and really, the ravioli making isn't that time-consuming. The result was AMAZING. Creamy and delicious, and loved by everyone in my family, including the kiddos.""

Reviewed Giddy-Up Steak with Onion-Date Compote

Jan 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Amazing flavor for a steak! I had to cook the onions for about 20 or 30 minutes without the lid, because they had a lot of moisture and weren't caramelizing. Once they started getting brown, I put the lid back on to lock in remaining moisture.

Other than that, I didn't alter the recipe at all, and it was wonderful.""

Reviewed Kale-llaloo

Jan 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is super easy to prepare, and really delicious. I agree that the butter really isn't needed, since you are rendering the fat from the bacon. Wonderful flavors!""

Reviewed Pasta Bolognese

Nov 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Super wonderful! The flavors were deep and delicious. Don't rush the browning, and be sure to taste often so you can adjust the salt. At first I put too much in, but as I thinned it with water, it was perfect. Although this sauce takes a long time to cook, the preparation is easy and it doesn't need constant attention.""

Reviewed Indian Carrot Salad

Nov 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

AMAZING recipe. Flavors are exquisite. I always up the amount of cumin I use, because I love cumin. Using lamb is a must; the flavors are much nicer.""

Reviewed Loin of Pork with Fennel and Garlic

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

I used a boneless pork loin, and it still turned out wonderful! I cooked it a little less than one hour, and the temperature was perfect. The crust tasted amazing! If you are worried about burning the herbs, add a little more olive oil to make the paste a little runnier (that's what I did).""

Reviewed Pumpkin Lasagna

Oct 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was amazing! Absolutely delicious. If you don't strain the pumpkin, it will end up a little thick, but I don't think this step is necessary. Next time I will also double the amount of pumpkin, because there wasn't enough to cover all the layers. Great flavors!""

Reviewed Citrus Beet Salad

Sep 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

GREAT flavors!! I used 4 instead of 6 large beets, Kalamata olives and a sweet yellow onion; super easy to do and really delicious. I will be making this often.""

Reviewed Mushroom and Mustard Spaetzle

Sep 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Didn't add the mushrooms, but this was the best homemade spaetzle recipe I've made. Flavors of the sauce were great, and the spaetzle itself turned out wonderfully well. It's a tad time-consuming, but worth it.""

Reviewed Greek Taco!

Sep 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A more time-consuming recipe than I originally intended, but it was REALLY delicious. The tzatziki isn't traditional, but it was REALLY yummy...and I ate it with a spoon. ""

Reviewed Savory Coeur a la Creme

Aug 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I make this all the time for company, because it's easy and tastes delicious. The stiffer the mixture becomes when whipping, the less likely you are to have a runny coeur a la creme. If you overwhip, it won't set up correctly.""

Reviewed Lemon Chicken Breasts

Aug 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Absolutely wonderful! I didn't change anything in the recipe, although I did shred the chicken after it was baked. By doing this, I was able to get the pan sauce in every bite, and highly recommend doing this, or, depending on how thick your chicken breasts are, the chicken can be bland. Moist, but bland. ""

Great flavors, and easy to prepare. My cod fell apart, but the pieces were still yummy:)

My 16-month old LOVED this dish....note on the carrots, though: it took a LOT longer than 5 min to cook to tender. Overall, a great dish."

Reviewed Mustard Pork Chops

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

Saw this episode on the Cooking Channel, and made it that night. I used pear cider, because that's all that I could find...but the flavors were great. I also used boneless pork loin chops, pounded thinly, because that's what I prefer. I REALLY enjoyed this dish, as did my family."

Really delicious!! My 16-month old son loved this, as well as my husband. I cut out the peas, because I don't like them, but the flavors tasted so light and vibrant. The taste of the lemon and the fennel is subtle, but amazing. I'm always looking for new risotto recipes, and this is going in the recipe box!
