This is the bomb. Next time I will double the recipe. I used San Marzano because they are the best. I also added a little red pepper flake for zip and because I had fresh basil a sprinkle. My first time making spaghetti squash (easy) and the marinara was the topping. Yum!

Excellent. I am making this for the second time tonight. I suggest making the broth first. No wonder the fish would be cold if you cooked it first. I cooked the broth down for much longer than suggested. This made for a deeper, rich consistency. I found frozen artichoke hearts at Trader Joe's. My boyfriend is not a big fan of fish and he ra"

I guess it's no secret this is a great chicken dish. My boyfriend and I make this one often. We love it with jasmine rice. It's a keeper!"

Awesome chicken dish. Who would complain about leftovers? I bought thighs and drumsticks, a breast would probably just dry out. I wish I had not added as much salt because it did not need it. I saved some of the sauce in the freezer because I think it would be good on top of a steak and there was plenty to go around. Excellent!"

I watched the episode and I could not get this chicken out of my mind. The salsa is a great addition to give roast chicken a kick. I've always used a lemon in my roast chicken as it flavors the chicken delicately. Awesome will make again and again with the fried potatoes and spicy aoli - Wow!

Wow! I had won tons and cabbage from a salad and decided to try this recipe. I had to buy the bamboo steamer but I think it's worth the investment :)
This would be a fun thing to make with a friend, the stuffing of the dumplings takes time. They were outstanding. I learned that you cannot crowd them or the won tons reach out to each...

My girlfriend has chickens so she gave me the fresh eggs and zucchini from her garden so I decided on this recipe and it is outstanding! Jamie Oliver uses fresh herbs and that's key. I used red pepper flakes in the zucchini saute as I like spicier food. It was perfect. My pancetta was not thick but it didn't matter it was delicate and blended...

Food Network has the worst search engine, you can't find the recipe in their search engine but easily with Google - hilarious. I made this last night. It's delicious! A bit more work than Giada made it look like on the show of course. I jimmied the tootpicks around when I was browning the chicken so that all sides could be browned. You have t...
