Reviewed Portuguese-Style Fish Stew

Jan 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Pretty good. I added a few spices since my husband and I like a little kick: some cumin, chipotle chili powder, and oregano. I also used chicken stock instead of water and added a couple teaspoons of corn starch with the fish to thicken the sauce (the hubby believes liquidy soup should only be served when one is sick). Topped each bowl with a little...

I only used the recipe for the marinade, so I can't really rate too high, but I loved how wonderful the chicken and veggies tasted. The cilantro was a little strong, but I love cilantro so I didn't mind. I also added a little cumin, and will probably either add more or some cayanne pepper in the future for some more heat. I also made some home made...

These are so yummy! I am so happy that I've finally found an enchilada recipe that packs a ton of flavor. I took the advise of previous reviewers and looked up "Mexican Spice Blend", and it's cumin, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, chili powder, and oregno. I diced the chicken before cooking and coated the chicked with the blend. I also used white...

Reviewed Sloppy Joes with Maui Onion Straws

Dec 3, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Wow, so, so good. I've never even HAD sloppy joes before, much less made them, but I love trying and making new things, so I thought I'd give this a try. We were not disappointed! I only used one pound of very lean ground beef, so I halved all the ingredients except for the garlic and jalapenos since we always like a bit extra. I also used apple cider...

Reviewed Mac and Cheddar Cheese with Chicken and Broccoli

Oct 18, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Oh wow, so good! I admit, the first time I cooked this it seemed like so much work (even with it being really yummy). The second time was a breeze. I just made sure everything was chopped and measured before I even started cooking, which really helps when making the sauce because you have to be very quick or the roux will burn and ruin the dish. I...

Loved it! I've used this on Tilapia and Halibut, and both turned out great! I added just a tablespoon of butter for some more flavor, omitted the olives since neither my husband or I like them, and served the fish with the sauce on top. It turned out so beautiful we actually took pictures of our plates!

Reviewed Artichoke Spinach Dip with Roasted Red Bell Peppers

Oct 15, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Wow! So yummy and so simple to make. I did have to improvise slightly: I roasted and peeled one red bell pepper myself. My grocery store didn't carry frozen creamed spinach, so I thawed and drained some plain frozen spinach and added cream cheese to the mixture. I also used a small black iron skillet to heat it all in and covered the dip with parmesan...

Reviewed Chicken Cordon Bleu

Oct 15, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Really good and really easy. I had to bake the chicken for a little longer, and I made a really simple wine and lemon sauce to pour over it, but was really impressed with how easy it all came together. And my husband was actually worried I had slaved over the stove for hours making it when really it's one of the easiest dishes I have ever made!

Reviewed Italian Baked Chicken and Pastina

Oct 15, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Really love this recipe. It's very easy and always turns out great. The first time I made as is, the next time I added a couple vegetables: 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper and 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms. I also added more garlic and some basil, oregano, and red pepper flakes towards the end of cooking the meat and veggies. Very yummy!
