Reviewed Beef Stroganoff over Buttered Noodles

Jan 9, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I am an avid cook, and I really think this recipe is definitely not what I had expected. I found the sauce way too watery, so I added some cornstarch to try to thicken it. I wouldn't say that the recipe is tasteless or terrible...I'd just say it's not worth all the work for what you end up with. I've definitely made and had better with a lot le"

Jun 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was my first time eating chicken piccata. It was quite easy and tasty. It was very tart for my taste, so I added an extra cup of chicken broth to mellow out the tartness a little. I made angel hair pasta to accompany it, which was great with the sauce. I will definitely make this again, but will be doubling the sauce next time(it wasn't e"

I would just start by saying...double the recipe. It is sooo good! No more basic green bean casseroles for my family for sure! Even my picky kids loved it!!!""

These are the best homemade waffles I've made so far! I doubled the recipe for my family of 5, and it made 5 beautiful waffles. My kids don't like their waffles too crunchy or crisp, so I just lowered the cooking time to 2 minutes on my Cuisinart. Very good!""

Uhhh...not for me. Was excited about the simple ingredients, but no one in my family liked them. ""

Nov 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm an avid baker with a chocolate chip recipe that I call "the best chocolate chip cookies." I now have a new one. The recipe is such a pain with all the messed up measurements in ounces instead of cups, and more time & labor intensive with the dough chilling & butter melting...but thanks to the other posts with the regular measurements, I was...

Reviewed Super Buttered Noodles

Nov 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Never had just buttered noodles before, but this was just yummy & so simple. I didn't add the parsley, and totally forgot to add the chicken bouillon in the pasta water...so I just added a few sprinkles of it to the melted butter. It was a perfect simple side dish, made with ingredients that I always have at home...butter, sour cream & noodles!""

Reviewed Pork Chops with Apples and Onions

Nov 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I was really excited to try this recipe since it had apples in it. I made it tonight for dinner and LOVED the pork chops, but the apples & onion sauce was not really worth it to me. I think I will just use a good quality applesauce next time, and just warm it up and serve it on the side. It's not worth spending the time or ingredients for what...

Nov 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made the sauce using 2 cans of fire roasted tomatoes, 2 Tbsp. sugar, crushed red pepper flakes, a handful of raw shrimp and let the basil steep in the sauce for a few minutes before mixing in the pasta. IT WAS SOOO GOOD!!! No, you can't eat this decadent sauce every day, but if you're looking for a really good pasta dish without the expensive...

I've FINALLY found the perfect banana bread recipe! Moist, wonderful pillows of banana yumminess! I've tried so many different recipes, not so much because I love banana bread, but more because we always seem to have leftover ripe bananas in the house. The coffee element interested me, so I thought I'd try it out...it was wonderful! You can't...

I've never enjoyed cooked carrots before, but these were quite tasty. I used baby carrots and didn't have any rosemary, but they were still really good. Even my picky kids ate them all up. Next time I'll definitely slice the carrots in half to reduce the amount of time it took to get them soft. ""

I'm not a big M&M lover, but having 3 kids, I knew they'd love these cookies...and YES, they and all their friends LOVE these cookies!!! They are chewy, peanut buttery and just plain yummy. Definitely try these for a fun twist on your ordinary oatmeal or chocolate chip cookie!""

Yum-Yum!!! I've made this meatloaf twice now, and about to make it for dinner tomorrow night. The flavor and moistness of this meatloaf is by far the best I've ever made (and I've made several). The first time I made it, I did exactly as her recipe called for (except I didn't have fresh thyme, so I used dried...it was still great). The 2nd ti...

Oh my goodness...so crunch-alicious yummy! My husband & kids thought I was a rock star. I've had a cast iron pot for 3 years that I was afraid to use, but finally used it for this recipe...so worth it!

I've read the comments about the saltiness, but remember that the amount of "house seasoning" she uses is NOT the amount you...
