Reviewed Penne in Almond Sauce

Dec 15, 2013 on

This recipe was really good. BUT in order to make the sauce creamy, I strained it through a sieve. I used sliced almonds ( with the skin on), which left the sauce looking really gritty in the blender. So after straining, I continued following the recipe and it turned out great! This recipe is sort of like a lightened up version of fettuccine alfredo....

Reviewed Black Bean Lasagna

Oct 23, 2013 on

Made this for dinner tonight, and I wasn't very impressed. I was hoping this healthier version could replace my normal lasagna recipe, but I really missed the cheese! This recipe turned out sort of dried on top and did not look very appetizing. The tofu "cheese" was odd, and I will not be making this again. I give it two stars because it was edible,...

Just made this for dinner! I substituted green bell pepper for the poblano, and reduced the chilli powder from 3 Tbls to 1 tsp because I don't like heat. It was delicious :) Even the boys in my family were open to trying the quinoa with it, when normally they avoid "health" foods."

Reviewed Beef Stew with Cream Biscuits

Nov 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is the BEST beef stew recipe. Its bursting with flavor and the beef is really tender. I cut back on the cayenne pepper because I don't like spicy food. And I usually just bake refrigerator biscuit to cut down on time/energy. I the only bad thing is it took me an hour to even get the stew in the oven! So I would recommend starting it like 3 ...
