Reviewed French Onions

Apr 12, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was SO GOOD!! I made homemade croutons out of french bread. I can't imagine using the store bought, I just don't think it would taste right. Other than that, don't change a thing. It was the perfect side to steak and so easy. YUM!"

Didn't love it. Weird combination of tastes.........maybe it was the sun dried tomatoes. Anyways, I would not make again."

Reviewed Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Black Bean Salsa

Dec 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was really a great, healthy and easy dish! I loved it!! It absolutely was not too salty. The orange juice, ketchup and honey actually made the marinade sweet so I don't know how anyone could say it was too salty. The salsa made it! The only thing I did differently was I made a vinaigrette with the lime juice for the salsa: used evoo, lime ju...

Sep 28, 2011 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I gave it 5 stars because it just tasted fabulous! However, I agree with the other reviewer that it would have been helpful to be more specific on ingredient quantities. I found myself spending more time than I should have adding more of this, that and the other to finally complete the dish (try including fresh basil and a clove of garlic).....bu...

Reviewed Mussels with Chorizo

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

Do NOT use the mussel water! This has got to be a mistake. I also used 1/2 wine/1/2 chicken broth as I felt the wine was too strong by itself, even after simmering for 10 minutes (IMHO). The chorizo has a great taste. I also added chopped tomatoes when cooking the onions and a squeeze of lemon as the reviewer below did. Lastly, I put the chorizo back...
