Reviewed Creamed Peas with Crispy Shallots

Nov 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were delicious.....I had pearl onions that I added to the sweet peas, I added a pinch of nutmeg and simmered with a few bay leaves. I didn't do the fried shallots on top. But, this was delicious. They reminded me of the creamed peas I used to eat when I was growing up by the brand 'Byrds eye'."

Tracy, from Modesto (i[m from Manteca....we're almost neighbors) Anyway, this will not thicken. You have to add a little flour to the melted butter-salt-pepper and then add the cream...then add the peas and the rest of the ingredient etc. Even though I thought it was strange not to use a 'thickener' and to let just basically simmer to 'thicken' I "

Feb 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The stuffing smelled delicious! So good in fact, I used it to top homemade mac and cheese (I did add sliced cooked bacon to that) BUT I did add more cheese and more seasonings. I wrapped the Artichokes VERY well so no water could get in there...And they were HORRIBLE! So bland, gooey and gross! I pulled off the leaves and washed them and made an ...

Very easy! And so delicious! I used about 4 cups baby carrots sliced in half. Oh my gosh..so good, While they were cooking I kept tasting the sauce. The only thing I did different was to add some corn starch to the sauce in the pan. It was too good not to have it stick on the carrots.
My husband kept eating them and saying how good they...

As one of the other reader, I think of a recipe and then go to food Network to find it :)....This soup was delicious. My changes: Instead of 8 leeks I used 4 (mine were large), I only pureed 1/2 the soup as I like chunky potatoes and veggies, and I fried thick applewood smoke bacon and used some of the bacon grease with 1/2 the butter to make the...
