These were amazing! I think I made my husband fall in love with all over again with these burgers! He couldn't stop raving as he was eating.

Super yummy! I followed directions exactly as written. I absolutely love the flavors, especially the sweet and spicy aspect.

Reviewed slow cooked cuban sandwich

Apr 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

These sandwiches are incredible! The pork turned out so flavorful, perfect! I followed the entire recipe to a T until the very end. I bought bakery style sub rolls, and after assembling the sandwiches, I grilled them on my George Foreman grill. I love how the grill acts like a pannini press, it flattens the sandwich and gives the bread a nice...

Apr 3, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I thought this meal was very good and something different. The chopping of all the veggies took a little while, but overall it was very easy to make. My husband went absolutely gaga over this dish. I love cooking dishes like this that lets my husband realize he likes veggies after all.

Apr 1, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Loved it! I have never roasted cauliflower in the oven before, and I will now, many times more in the future.

Reviewed moist and easy cornbread

Mar 31, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This cornbread is awesome! My hubby and son loved it too! I was never a fan of cornbread because usually it's too dry and/or too sweet. This is perfect for my taste. I'm making it again tonight to accompany my chili!

All of it was very good.

Reviewed caribbean rice and peas

Mar 21, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

The flavors are spot on, and absolutely delicious. However, just like a similar recipe I have made in the past, the rice was still pretty al dente after the 50 minutes. I ended up throwing it back on the stove to simmer for another 30 minutes, and then the rice was perfect. Without that problem, this would be a 5 star recipe. (I have an electric...

Reviewed shrimp and chorizo stew

Mar 21, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This was incredibly yummy! I loved the smoked paprika! The only changes I made was using a canned of diced tomato instead of the whole and chicken stock instead of the 2 cups of water. I also used red potatoes instead of the russet because I needed to use them up. My husband loved this dish also, so I will make it again soon!

Reviewed roasted red pepper sauce (with gnocchi)

Mar 19, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This was so quick and easy and tasted wonderful! However, saying that this serves 4 is a little bit of a stretch. My husband loved it so much and wanted seconds and leftovers for work the next day, so next time I will for sure double the entire recipe.

Reviewed mexican chorizo and turkey chili

Mar 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

The whole family loved this one! I didn't have any diced turkey laying around, so I browned a pound of ground turkey and removed it when it was cooked, and then cooked the chorizo and followed the recipe as written. I would also suggest to use only the 2 cups of stock, even that makes a looser chili, even after cooking down for an extra 30 min,...

Reviewed turkey pad thai

Mar 3, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This came out incredible! I poached a package of 3 chicken breasts, and after shredding, it came out to about 3 cups, so I doubled the sauce. I used a package of rice noodles instead of the linguine. Other than, that, followed everything else pretty much exactly. My whole family loved it too!

Reviewed chorizo stew with kale

Feb 21, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This stew was amazing! After just one bite, my husband told me that I should definatly make this again soon. The only changes I made was using fresh chorizo that I removed from their casings and broke it up as I cooked it, and I used a can of cannellini beans instead of garbanzo.

I used to make this quite often a few years back when I first started to cook. I had forgotten about this until today when I made it again. It's as yummy as the first time I made it.

This is the second time I've made this, and it turned out amazing again! It is a little time consuming, but so worth the effort! I am half German, and this schnitzel is darn good!

worst recipe ever! A complete fail, the batter didn't stick at all, and I took the advice of drying the hot dogs off first. What a waste of time!

Jan 30, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I had never tried shrimp and grits before, so I didn't quite know what to expect. This recipe was amazing! Soooo good, the cayenne gave the perfect little kick. I will make this again very soon!

My family and I thought this was just okay. Nothing amazing, kinda bland really. I followed recipe as written. I will not make this again.

The whole family really enjoyed this. I thought the zucchini added a slight sweetness. The spices were spot on. I would make this again for sure.

Reviewed chicken tortilla soup

Jan 24, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Perfectly Delish! The only change I made was cutting the hot water in half because I thought 8 cups of liquid total sounded extensive. The soup was so flavorful and comforting in this awful winter cold. My hubby and 7 yr old son also loved it.

Fantastic! Although I have never deep fried anything until today, and two of my chimichangas did open up in my dismay, it still turned out very good. My husband said it was resteraunt quality, so I know it was good :-) I didn't make the sauce, but Itook her base for the salad and made a big salad of my own adding cucumber and queso fresco and...

I really loved this! I used Fresco buffalo chicken sausages and I couldn't find escarole, so I used Kale instead. I love this different way of eating a pasta dish. My 7 yr old son loved this too. This is a keeper!
