Reviewed Jamie Oliver's Best Pasta Salad

Jun 20, 2012 in on Food.com

After reading such great reviews, I had high hopes for this pasta salad and I really tried to like it. The ingredients sounded like a delicious combination when I read them, however, I found this to be extremely bland. I used good summer produce from my local organic farmer's market and a good quality olive oil. There was really just no taste...

Reviewed Cracker Barrel's Hash Browns Casserole - Copycat

Oct 18, 2011 in on Food.com

This recipe is (almost) the same one that my family has used for years! It is a large batch and great for gatherings. It is easy to throw together as well. I accidentally left out the butter once and couldn't tell the difference, so I've been making it without the butter ever since. I have used both shredded hash browns and country style hash...

Reviewed Thai Noodles With Spicy Peanut Sauce

Oct 1, 2011 in on Food.com

Absolutely fantastic! My 3 year old cried when we ran out and he couldn't have another bowl. I followed the peanut sauce recipe very closely with the exception of doubling the chili sauce. It was a good amount of heat, which I love. Rather than using frozen stir fry veggies, I used fresh sugar snap peas, onions, and red peppers. You can r...

Reviewed Black Bean Taco Salad With Lime Vinaigrette

Oct 1, 2011 in on Food.com

Absolutely delicious!! I have made this recipe many times for my family and also for parties and everyone loves it! It is light, but surprisingly filling and I usually serve it by itself with just fruit for dessert for my family. I've found that if you mix the dressing with the salad and then serve, it is enough dressing as written , but if I e...

Reviewed Minestrone Soup with Pasta, Beans and Vegetables

Jul 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I was very disappointed in this soup, especially after seeing so many great reviews. Although it was easy to put together and was very healthy, I just thought it was extremely bland. The only way I varied the recipe was to use fire roasted tomatoes instead of regular diced tomatoes. I won't be making this recipe again. FYI: This recipe is 4 s"

Reviewed Killer Baked Beans...

Jul 1, 2011 in on Food.com

I never imagined that I would start a review of baked beans by saying that I ate so much of them I made myself sick, BUT these are so good I ate enough of them to make myself sick. The flavors blend together perfectly and is the perfect balance of sweet and hot. The only minor changes I made were to fry the bacon in a skillet and saute the onio...

This was a great recipe and just as good (or better) as the traditional lasagne I usually make. The flavors ..."
