Reviewed Spanish Chicken and Potato Roast

Aug 13, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is really good and very easy, and i have now made it several times. I did find that I had to cook the chicken a little longer than the recipe called for (18 min,). I also cut back on the potatoes and loaded it up with more vegatables adding 2 carrots when starting the potatoes and then added zucchini and red/yellow peppers when adding the chi"

Reviewed Perfect Black Beans

Feb 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I am not a fan of beans, although my family is. It's a consistency thing for me. However, I tried these and really, really liked them. They had exceptional flavor and because black beans are smaller, the consistency didn't bother me much at all. Never thought I would like this type of a recipe, but I would make/eat these anytime. I followed ...

Feb 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were good - not fantastic, but good. After reading the reviews, I did cut back on the sugar (3/4 cup) and added citrus zest and a bit of juice. Happened to use an orange. The citrus definitely made a taste difference and the muffins were not dry. They were still a bit dense and I definitely didn't mix the batter too much. Would make ag...

This was very good. I didn't have fresh ginger, so used ground. Otherwise, made the recipe as called for. Next time I may use brown sugar substitute to cut the calories even more, but very tasty and very healthful. The entire family liked them. A definite keeper.""

Good feedback from the entire family. Will definitely make it again. I think it would be best with a sausage stuffing. We had just the traditional bread/sage stuffing and I think it would have been better with a bit of sausage. Of course, one could always brown some up and add it into the stuffing when preparing this dish.

Totally delicious. My family really loved this - especially my husband. I hadn't been able to get him to eat squash, but he really loved the slight sweetness that it added, so I belive I've found a convert. This will become one of my winter go-to dishes. Excellent!

Reviewed Big Daddy's Apple Cobbler

Nov 8, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Excellent! I ended up with 8 cups of apples (using 5 large Granny Smith's) but didn't really increase the other ingredients, other than putting a bit more sugar in. I also didn't have dark brown sugar, so added about a tablespoon of molasses to make up for it. This was a very nice departure from the the apple crisp that I usually make. Didn't...

Reviewed Pancetta and Herb Brussels Sprouts

Nov 8, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This was excellent! I had never fixed brussel sprouts before, but felt compelled to give it a try. Even my picky teenagers liked it! The only change I made was to add a bit of chicken stock to the pan and cooked it down a bit (no more than a 1/3 cup) before putting in the oven. Also, to get them truly carmelized, it took longer than the 3-4 minutes...
