Reviewed Classic Italian Turkey Meatballs

Jul 14, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

These meatballs are fabulous! They make a ton of meatballs. I freeze them and use for weeks. I have tried multiple turkey meatball recipes to make meatballs healthier for my Italian, meatball loving husband. These are the only ones that he doesn't ask me if they are the healthy, turkey ones. Easy to make, the scoop is the perfect size. "

This recipe was just ok. It was very easy, which was nice. I did not cover the panna cottas before refrigerating them, as a result, they had this unappetizing film over the top that you had to skim off. The recipe didn't say to cover them. Should have gone with my instincts on that part. Also, it was bland. Received lukewarm reviews. The fresh ra"

I love this recipe. We made this on the grill all summer. I don't make the balsamic glaze. I use a grape must. It is delicious and easy to make. It pairs well with lamb. "

This was horrible. Like eating a baked paper bag with worse flavor. Disgusting. My husband couldn't even finish one of these autrocities. "

Not being a baker, I had my doubts. Wow, was it great! Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out just like the picture. My husband was amazed. Making again to go with a dinner of steamed mussels. Will be fantastic!"

Great side dish. Went well with grilled pork chops. I used mandarin oranges, as it is summer and oranges are not in season. Skeptical husband went back for seconds. Drizzled a little good olive oil on at the end. Mmmmmmm. "

Uuuuugggghhhh! I normally like Laura Calder's recipes. This one was awful. Followed recipe, and what I got was a floury, buttery, salty, thin dough brick. Tried one out on my son, he told me it tasted like a spoonful of flour. Might be ok with afternoon tea, but it's the middle of summer. A waste of 1 & 1/2 sticks of butter. Salted store bought p"

Jan 19, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

This was not good. Chorizo was greasy and overpowered the chicken. Had to drain on paper towels. The rice was mushy and gross. Didn't even add the seafood and was too much food. Enough rice to feed 12. Waste of ingredients. Skip this one, way better recipes out there. ""

This is a wonderful little recipe. I first made it to use up some leftover cheese and a bit of arugula that I had in fridge. My husband loved it. I always seem to have some extra salad in fridge that I will use, but the peppery arugula is best. I use lots of pepper on chicken, as it contrasts well with the cheese. What a yummy way to clean out fr...

Reviewed Caramelized Pancetta and Fennel Salad

Jan 7, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is a regular meal at my home. I use bacon instead of pancetta, to cut down on costs. I also add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the bacon and fennell before roasting to give it some bite. My husband loves it. We serve it as a main course to bulk up on our veggies during the week. Delicious! ""
