Reviewed baked spaghetti

17 hours ago on

This has become one of my wife's favorite meals. The combination of spices that simmer for an hour turns into one of the best flavors for spaghetti we've ever had. It's even better as leftovers, so cooking for two just means we get to eat it that much longer. It takes a while to cook from start to finish, but the effort isn't that much since it's...

Reviewed beef and cheese manicotti

Oct 17, 2014 on

This recipe is full of flavor and is very weekday cooking friendly. Using plenty of salt and pepper, coupled with a full medium onion and the minced garlic, is just the right mix of spices. There will be plenty of filling left over after stuffing the shells, and it can be spread over the top of the noodles before putting the cheeses on top. The...

The flavors that come through on this are awesome. The combination of seafood seasoning in the flour with minced garlic and lemon for the sauce is perfect. It seems like cheating to finally have found a recipe for fish that is quick and this good. Even my wife who is not a fish fan raved about it. We had it with Alton Brown's oven roasted broccoli...

May 16, 2014 on

After watching the Throwdown episode where this was made and beat the restaurant competitor, we decided to give it a try. The depth of flavors that come together from combining the roasted peppers and red onions with a little bit of sweet from the ancho chile powder, honey, and molasses is what makes it work so well. The sourdough bread toasted...

Dec 4, 2013 on

It was time to take down the pumpkins and hay bales from Halloween decorating, and my wife asked for some home made pumpkin bread. was time to put those cute little pumpkins to good use. If you've never tasted pumpkin bread with real shredded pumpkin, now is the time, and this is the recipe. Helpful hint - Watch The Video and be sure to...

Reviewed East Hampton Clam Chowder

Dec 2, 2013 on

On the verge of bailing out due to not finding fresh clams, I decided to follow through with canned clams to see how the recipe works out in general. It was a good decision. The consistency of the soup was perfect for this variety of chowder, and the flavor wasn't compromised by the canned clams. Prep time for me is a little longer than described,...

Reviewed Chicken Potpie With Cheddar Crust

Nov 25, 2013 on

This is a phenomenal chicken pot pie. The cheddar cheese crust is simple to make and has a flakiness that only comes with home made dough. Simmering chicken broth in the rotisserie chicken bones creates a depth of flavor that can't be matched any other way. As others correctly point out, prep time is way, but the end result is totally worth the...

Reviewed Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

Oct 9, 2013 on

This is the ultimate low carb version of spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs are excellent with a nice kick from ground sausage coupled with the flavor of just a hint of carrots and celery. Cooking directions for the spaghetti squash are spot on, with the squash turning out tender; moist; and full of flavor. The meatballs and sauce are easily...

Reviewed Beef Stroganoff

Aug 13, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Awesome recipe, especially considering how quickly it can be made. Using cubed steak is perfect since the meat is tenderized so well. The mixture of beef broth and sour cream is a great low carb combination for a gravy, so the recipe is a good pasta choice for anyone counting carbs. It will require additional salt and pepper during the cooking "

Reviewed Baked Chicken Breasts With Parmesan Crust

Aug 8, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is an excellent recipe, particularly given the limited ingredients and short time needed to put it together. The combination of Dijon mustard and fresh Parmesan cheese stand out in the taste, and the touch of Cayenne adds just the right amount of kick. The chicken is very juicy, probably from packing the breading tightly before cooking - th"

Reviewed Chicken Cordon Bleu

May 4, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This recipe is over the top good. The gruyere absolutely makes it. Be aware that the cooking time as others have said is a little off, but it's reasonably close if the chicken is pounded to 1/4 inch thickness. This makes a great low carb dinner paired with steamed vegetables and a caesar salad."

Reviewed Sour Cream Pork Chops with Vidalia Onions

May 1, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This recipe is simple to make and wonderful. The gravy is a great low carb alternative to flour gravy. Suggest cutting back both the grill time as well as the simmer time to keep the pork chops tender and juicy. Our version cut one third of the time off both, and the chops were fully cooked and very tender."

Reviewed Onion and Pepper Smothered Round Steak

Sep 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

The flour and cayenne combination as a coating for the meat before browning is genius. It preserved the tenderness of the meat inside in the final product. Seasonings were just right with a little bit of kick. This is one the simplest yet best tasting Emeril recipes yet. Guests loved it and left asking to email the recipe."

Jun 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This recipe is over the top good. Do not skip on the olives if you can find the brand in the recipe - they add just a hint of olive taste. Definitely use Panko bread crumbs. They add a flavor that sends the recipe into another dimension. There is no need to spend the cash on buffalo mozzarella - a ball of regular mozzarella is perfectly fine."
