Jan 2, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Incredibly delicious and flavorful. I didn't use the saffron though. It was just way too exspensive and I have myself on a food budget but if you eliminate the saffron it is just delicious. I did cook my chicken a little bit longer though. When I saw it on tv it didn't look really done to me so I cooked mine for about 4-5 min instead of the 2-3 a...

This soup is really delicious. After eliminating a few things of course. I don't like using alcohol in my food. I don't care if you can taste it or not, I cook for kids as well and I don't like the taste of it so I eliminated the beer. Also, I didn't make the soup as creamy as they did. I used my blender to break up most of the veggies but left s...

Nov 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have made this dish twice. One with the mushrooms and one without. I made it without because I had a guest that was allergic to mushrooms and I figured that the cheese, rice and broccoli would be good by itself and it was. A tasty and easy dish with or without the mushrooms.""

Great and delicious. I usually just add regular 2% milk to my potatoes, but the buttermilk did give it a great flavor and zing. And btw, a plain old potato masher works just fine.""

I have never had blondies but this was absolutely delicious!! I love that the dough could be used for blondies and cookies and choc chip cookies are my absolute favorite!

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I read the reviews of other's before making it myself and I'm glad I did cause a lot of you were on point with your measuring. Usually when I make Ina's and Giada's recipes, I end up cutting back on something and it's usually the amount of salt they put into their food. A lot of you said to use only half a teaspoon of the sa...

I never made chicken fried steak before, but I will now. I will be making HUGE adjustments though. I WILL NOT BE PUTTING THAT MUCH BUTTER IN MY POTATOES. THAT IS JUST SCREAMING HIGH CHOLESTEROL.

I have yet to make this dish but I plan too. I must say though, to all the people complaining that it boils over onto your oven, Ina says on the show that she put foil down in her oven for easy clean up. I guess you all overheard that. But anyway, I think I am going to use a deep set brownie dish for this recipe."

Great recipe but I admit that I cheated a bit, lol. I bought the frozen hash brown potatoes that you see in the frozen food section and thawed them out. Instead of canadian bacon I used ham and added some cheese on top for the last minute or so until it was melted over the hash brown. Just as tasty and delicious. "
