another great dish from Ina. My husband and I enjoyed this dish very much! The sauce was absolutely delicious. I paired it with a fettuccine with EVOO, a bit of butter, parmesan cheese, and it was perfect. By the time the meal was over, the sauce was GONE. I will be making this again!
I didn't alter this, except I didn't go over the 1/3...

This was my first gingerbread cookie and it came out flawless! The taste is delish! My kids are hard judges and they gobble these up! My other hard judge AKA the husband thought these were DELISH. The frosting was fun too. They made my cookies gorgeous. Looked professional.
I actually let the dough sit overnight and made in two separate...

absolutely DIVINE! This recipe is to die for! My husband has been to Paris France and knew what a real Madeleine should taste like and he said this nailed it! I have to say the brown butter with the orange zest really makes this cookie. I am SO glad I went out and bought the pan and didn't use my mini muffin pan, because it really made me fee...

another Giada hit! I had never cooked with Mascarpone cheese before and had to try this. It was DE-LISH!
The only thing I did different was NOT add mushrooms, we are not a mushroom family. I used artichoke hearts instead and my husband LOVED them. I drained them really well and sliced them in half to sautee with the onions. Absolutely...

So I loved this recipe but I think I fouled up somewhere. I think I added too much lemon juice by accident OR either didn't buy the right capers/rinse them well enough. I say this because mine turned out with a very sour/tart taste. LOL! I added a little more stock to try to die it down but it didn't help too much. Aside from that the chicken w...

Just made this dish for the first time tonight and it was UH-mazing! I was really nervous about the sauce and the eggs cooking if I didn't time it just right. I made the sauce first just to make sure it was at the best room temp before adding it to the pasta. I even set the bowl next to the pot of boiling water!
I didn't find pancetta...

Nov 11, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Deeeee-lish! I made this the first time yesterday for my neighbor who just had a baby and she texted me after and raved about it! I did use half mild italian sausage and half ground beef, and it had an amazing taste. I think just ground beef would be great too, but I just love italian sausage :) At any rate, I will be making this again and ag...

DE-lish! The rub was perfect. I added the rub earlier in the day and let them sit in it for a while, and made the sauce prior to cooking them.
The only thing I did different to the sauce was make The Neely's homemade Applesauce and I added a little more apple juice to strain out a 1/2 cup for the sauce recipe above. (we aren't huge pomegranate...

This was absolutely delicious!! My kids loved it and I feel so much better about making applesauce homemade VS buying the store bought kind and not knowing what all goes into it.
Hands down an amazing recipe! Thanks Neely's!
(all I did was omit the nutmeg, cause my kids don't like the flavor. And I also added a tad more cinnamon...

This is hands down UH-mazing! My family fell in love with it, and my kids are hard to please. The choice on the Gruyere paired with the sharp Cheddar was delicious! I highly recommend the tomatoes, they give a very fresh flavor to the dish AND it's nice to cut into the cheese. Not that the cheese isn't delicious, but it's a great combo. One t...
