It came out great! My budget did not allow for all the meats. I chose boneless spare ribs and made tiny meatballs out of ground beef rather than large ones because I only had one pound. Luckily, I had the expensive parm-reggiano chunk of cheese for the meatballs and that made them fabulous! I also had 2 italian sausage in the freezer.. but no...

Jan 29, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I was pleasantly surprised at how well this came out. I was cooking for one, so I used one large chicken breast and sliced it horizontally, per the recipe. The egg mixture and especially the Panko mixture was almost done by the time I finished that one breast cut into cutlets, so if you follow the recipe, you need way more Panko, (not flour), eggs...

I modified this recipe based on other recipes I found to combine to perfection! I subbed fat-free, low sodium chicken broth for 8 cups, and then did 2 cups water. I added one large russet potato, peeled and medium diced, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1tsp oregano, kosher salt, pepper, 1 bay leaf. I cooked in slow cooker on high without stirring for ...

I used my own home made meat sauce because I had made a huge batch for something else. Other than the sauce, I followed the recipe. It was so good. Find your sauce! The rest is easy peasy.

Jul 31, 2013 in null on Food.com

I gave 4 stars because the "bones" of the recipe are good. The meat needed more flavor (maybe marinate with pepper as well as adding a little more oyster sauce and less oil) but the bok choy was outstanding in this dish! The balance of garlic and fresh ginger is absorbed by the bok choy and the gravy of the whole dish was spot-on. It just needs...

I loved this pasta salad. Of course, I modified it and this time went with a combo of the pasta salad and greek salad...and it was yummy. I used bow tie pasta, added thin julienne red onion (just about 1/4 cup to give it flavor), thin julienne red and green peppers (just about 1/2 a pepper each).. and yes, I seeded a cucumber, and made small cho"

Yum. I usually stray away from Ms. Dean because of the butter,... but this time I risked it since I had a beautiful piece of Mahi Mahi to cook. The recipe is right-on and just be careful with the salt until you taste. Also, I found that tasting the sauce before it goes on the fish made me think I had put too much lemon juice but when it went wi"

I have heard about this recipe for a while but was skeptical about using mayo. Much to my delight, the recipe was spot-on and the chicken was truly juicy and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, and added a sprinkle of Italian seasoned breadcrumbs on top which gave it a great flavor. I will make this one again!"

I tried this recipe for the first time for Christmas Eve/Day dinner. I followed the recipe and I got the MOST AMAZING mashed potatoes ever.

Every single person mentioned how good they were (and they were just "

I love this original clam dip! The chopped clams seem to come in 6.5 ounce (not 8 like the recipe stated) so I reduced the amount of cream cheese since I only had one can of clams. I recommend that if you really love clams, you buy extra, as the recipe is a little lacking when there aren't plenty of chewy clams in the dip.

Also, salt a...

Meatballs were delicious. I made it for spaghetti, so I used Italian breadcrumbs instead of plain, made mini meatballs and reduced the size of the recipe. Baked them instead of frying them. 30 minutes at 350 was exactly right. I added them to my sauce and let them soak up the flavor. Excellent recipe. Easy as can be!"

It was very good. I only was making for 1 person, so I used one (large) chicken breast, and I added zucchini to the spinach and potatoes. I used red potatoes because that is what I had. It was fast, it was rustic, it was tasty. The lemon gave it a nice citrus flavor that went very well."

I didn't know what to expect. I only had EV olive oil, so I did use that, but was too chicken (no pun intended) to use raw chopped garlic as a finish.. so after I cooked them exactly like the recipe, I lightly sprinkled a little garlic powder on one and it was awesome! We just ate them that way this time, but perhaps I'll try the garlic idea n...
