Reviewed chocolate chip-cherry cast-iron cookies

4 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

These cookies are really good! The oatmeal gives them a nice texture without overpowering the cookies. Some recipes are too heavy on oatmeal but this one isn't. The dark chocolate chips are a nice change to milk chocolate chips and give the cookies a more gourmet taste. The cherries are good too; they are tart but they cut through the sweetness....

Reviewed artichoke risotto

6 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

Tasty? What do you think?This risotto tastes amazing! It's my new favorite risotto recipe for sure. I made it as the main course for dinner so I added some baked crumbled prosciutto to add some meat to the meal. I bought a 6 oz. container of crumbled feta cheese and ended up adding the entire container because I didn't want the remaining cheese to...

Reviewed semolina and sun-dried tomato waffle-pizzas

6 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

This rating is mainly for the crust since the toppings can be varied according to personal preference. When I saw this episode I got so excited because I thought that I could finally make my 2-year old son a pizza crust that he could actually eat. Depending on the type of pizza you get, crusts tend to be too chewy, hard or dry for most little kids,...

Reviewed bibb salad with basil green goddess dressing

Apr 2, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This dressing is amazing! A little bit goes a long way so only make half the recipe if you're not going to be serving to a lot of people. I only used 1 teaspoon salt and it was salty enough.

Reviewed Plum Cake "Tatin"

Apr 1, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This cake is delicious! I couldn't find prune plums, so I bought regular red plums and sliced each one in 4, using only the inside pieces and not the ends. I was a little worried because plums are not in season yet and they were tart and not very juicy, but the caramel sauce takes care of that! The sauce soaks into the cake after turning it over...

Delicious salad! I'm not a fan of raw onions so I substituted them with cucumbers for some crunch. I really like farro and this will remain one of my go-to recipes.

Mar 26, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I really liked the flavor the dill added to the pickles but I did not care for the additional vinegar. It was too strong for my taste but others who tried it liked it. I will definitely use dill in the future when serving pickles.

Mar 20, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This was a very tasty dish. I didn't put the chicken in skewers with the orange but added the chicken pieces to the noodles directly after cooking. I also added peas and carrots. I used fettucini noodles because it is what I had at hand. The noodles and sauce dried out quite a bit after the dish rested for a couple of hours. I had saved some...

Reviewed dill fingerling potatoes

Mar 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I've never cooked potatoes this way before and I must say I'm impressed with how good they tasted. The only problem was that my potatoes did not cook in 20-30 minutes but it took almost an hour. But it was worth the wait. I will use this recipe from now as I found it more convenient than roasted the potatoes in the oven. The dill adds a nice freshness...

Mar 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I really like lemon bars but I've never made my own before. I searched for the right recipe for a long time before deciding on this one. The bars turned out great! Even my 2-year old can't have enough of them. I found the tart and sweet flavors to be well balanced.

Reviewed mustard-roasted fish

Mar 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is so tasty! I omitted the whole grain mustard only because I'm not a big fan of it. Not only does the sauce give the fish a delicious taste but it makes it look very elegant too. I roasted two 8-oz pieces of Chilean Sea Bass and used half the cream sauce. I will save the other half and roast some more fish in the upcoming days.

This rating is for the smoke salmon only. I did not make the fresh dill sauce this time, but will make it in the future. The "brine" used for the salmon was great. It gave the smoked salmon a very unique flavor. I brined it overnight and you could really taste the brown sugar even though all of it was removed before cooking the salmon. This is...

Great tasting soup - even my 2 year old liked it! I cooked 1/2 of the peas first as instructed but, by the time I added the other half, most of the liquid had already evaporated. I decided to cover the pan at that time and I added a little more hot liquid the last 20 minutes. The soup turned out pretty thick which is the way I like it, but you...

I'm giving this recipe 4 stars because the flavors are great together; the recipe just needs to be modified to have an egg bind everything together (unless you're a vegan). I substituted the cornmeal with bread crumbs because I didn't want the burgers to taste grany which tends to happen when they have cornmeal. After letting the burgers rest in the...

My 2-year old son has been having these for breakfast several days in a row. I really like the fact...
