Reviewed Spinach and Mint-Basil Pesto-Stuffed Pork Loin

Aug 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

The title is wrong - the recipe says basil, not spinach. No matter - I made this with basil and it was delicious. I didn't have a large loin, but two small ones. I split them both open, slathered on the pesto and put them together like a sandwich, and then tied them together about every couple inches. I then grilled them first on really high t"

I've made this three times now without the meat, and I'm ready to make it again for a potluck. It's different and tasty! I spice it up a bit more by adding a little more vinegar and adding Mama Lil's pickled peppers or those cherry peppers. This is a great side to any Mexican main."

I made this for fun about a year ago, and it turned out really good. I'm making it again for Easter brunch""

This soup is delicious! It's actually quite easy to make, with the chicken roasting while the rest of the deliciousness is brewing on the stove. Everyone here loved it alot.""

Delicious! Instead of bothering with apple pies, I'm making this for Christmas. It's easy and very tasty, a big hit. The large cut of apples and the citrus in the background make it an excellent vehicle for vanilla ice cream!""

I use mascarpone instead of cream cheese and get soooo many compliments! I've never used the nuts, but have topped them with blueberries - talk about patriotic! - and a tiny chocolate chip. If you want to make points at a party, make these!"

My daughter took a Greek cooking class, and even she loves this one. The greek yogurt is thick and adds just the right taste. If I can't find Fage, I drain the yogurt in a cheese cloth first. Thanks Ina!"

Reviewed Cauliflower Couscous

May 20, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Light and delicious! It makes a huge amount, so next time I will cut it back, although the leftovers are yummy. I roasted the cauliflower and shallots with the oil, then added the dates to the cous cous while it was warm before I added anything else. That seemed to help separate the dates - they wanted to stick to themselves! The splash of vin"

The water in the roaster kept it very moist. Mine had the bone removed, so I opened it up and put a branch of rosemary in the center, and I also added more oregano than a sprinkle. Yummy!"

The pepper salad screams Italian in my mouth - and screams yummy in everyone else's. I make this whenever I have too many peppers, and sometimes I buy too many just to make it. Thanks Giada!
