So yummy!! I added some garlic powder and increased the red pepper flakes a bit. My husband and I love this recipe and have it almost every week.

Reviewed Steamed Mussels with Leeks, Garlic, Thyme, White Wine, and Butter

Jan 20, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I don't know if I did something wrong, or if I'm just spoiled to the excellent steamed mussels at a couple of restaurants I've been to, but after reading all of these glowing reviews, I was a little disappointed with how these turned out. They were good, but I have had much better sauce with steamed mussels before."

Next time I might use andouille sausage instead of the ham, but this recipe was very tasty for a low-fat version. I don't know why this recipe is rated as "Intermediate" difficulty; it is super simple. Definitely needs more salt, and I'll kick the spices up a bit next time too, but overall, I was very pleased with how it turned out."

I didn't have chives, the right kind of pasta (I used fettuccine.), or the right kind of cheese (I used parmesan.), but this was really good and super-easy. Even my very picky 8-year-old (who was disappointed when he realized that when I said we were having pasta for dinner, I didn't mean regular spaghetti) liked it more than most new recipes I sp"

I did this in the oven instead of the grill, and despite somehow catching on fire in the oven, it was very good! (Yeah, I'm a bit of a clutz and not the greatest cook.) This recipe was pretty easy even for someone who isn't used to cooking things like this. Despite the flames in the oven, I would definitely make this again!"

I loved this! For such a simple recipe, it was extremely tasty! I will definitely make this again. Think I'll try a little less oil next time and a little more lemon juice just to make it even healthier."

Reviewed Turkey Chili

Oct 20, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very good, but I have had better so I gave it 4 stars. There was a recall on ground turkey, so I used lean ground beef. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper to spice it up a little. I'll probably try a different chili recipe next time so I have something else to compare this to, but I did go back for seconds and finish off ...

This was so delicious! If you like lime and cilantro and can handle a little heat, you will love this soup! I was a little short on chicken broth & used white wine to make up the difference. I also used Mexicorn and added a little chopped jalapeno that was left over from the guacamole I made as an appetizer. I will definitely make this recipe aga...
