Reviewed grilled tilapia with lemon butter, capers and orzo

Jul 27, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Fantastic dinner. Nice and light and so very easy. I had smaller fillets so my husband only grilled them like 2 mins per side.

Reviewed nick and toni's penne alla vecchia bettola

Jul 9, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is by far the best penne with vodka sauce we have ever had! And, it was super easy to make. I made only one adjustment...I only had large diced tomatoes, so I used them without draining them and cooked them as directed in the oven. Then followed the recipe without putting them in the food processor. It is truly wonderful. Thank you Ina!

Nice and light! Family enjoyed it a lot

Reviewed tangerine-glazed easter ham with baby carrots

Apr 21, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is absolutely the best ham recipe that I have ever made! The sage/olive oil paste permeates the meat as it cooks and the glaze is so fabulous to top it off. I will never go back to my old family favorite ham...:(. I did a bit of tweaking... First, I made the mistake of getting a spiral cut ham and was worried about it drying out. I had to...

Reviewed shrimp tacos with mango slaw

Apr 11, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Loved this recipe! I only could stand 1 tsp of the Srircha sauce, but those who love it could certainly up the amount. The flavors, the slaw, the shrimp, all of it was so good. I served an arugula, avocado and sliced tomato salad with olive oil and a splash of lime juice, sea salt and fresh pepper. Husband gave it a 10!

Mar 17, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is amazing! I have my favorite tomato sauce recipes, but this one is perfection for this dish The only change I made was a tiny bit of ground cloves and cinnamon to the sauce...love the idea and flavor! But, only a bit. The chutney was such a great addition that added a tinge of sweetness to the cheese mixture. My husband rated it...

Reviewed Perfect Popcorn

Mar 8, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe does make the perfect popcorn. The ratios are just right.
I added some smashed garlic to the butter and salt and pepper...heaven...except for the crumby movie. :)"

Reviewed Israeli Couscous with Apples, Cranberries and Herbs

Nov 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Love this recipe. I was lucky to have ingredients on hand to be able to make it. Quick and easy. Combination of herbs and textures make it even better than I thought it would be.
This would be a great and different side dish to serve for the holidays. Thank you Giada."

Reviewed Sea Bass with Potatoes and Tomatoes in Parchment with Angel Hair Pasta and Arugula Salad with Lemon and Olive Oil

Oct 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Not a fan of this dish. Found the potatoes and the pasta a bit of carb overload. Maybe searing the fish first would have helped. Could have used a less expensive type of fish, since I think it was not worthy of the sea bass.
Sorry Bobby, but I think this was a miss...but I do love you...."

Reviewed Raspberry Tiramisu

May 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just made this tiramisu for my family for our Mothers' Day dinner. It was fantastic and everyone raved about it.
I made one change in that I increased the raspberry jam to 1 1/2 cups and 6 Tablespoons of Grand Marnier. On top of being so good...it was easy and quick to make.
Thank you Giada for another fantastic recipe."

Reviewed Chicken and Egg Soup with Pastina

Jan 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love this soup. I also used a rotisserie chicken baked from the store and threw the whole thing in! The flavor is wonderful.
Also, I used only Kitchen Basics Chicken broth instead of water and I think it added to the soup. Used 9 cups of broth and would recommend using a bit more pastina. Adjust the rest of the ingredients accordingly.
