Reviewed Broccoli Cheese Soup

Dec 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This soup replaced my previous standby Broccoli Cheese Soup. It's so easy! The first time I made it the soup was too thin, however, that may have been because I did not have any half and half and used all milk (1%). To correct this, I added a bit more roux and it thickened up just fine. The second time I made it I increased the flour to 1/2 cup...

I've made this twice and got thumbs up all the way around. Two of my kids said this pizza was better than our local favorite pizza place. I can't say I agree, but I do like the positive feedback!"

Shared Recipe French Fried Shrimp

May 14, 2012 on Food.com

"I found this version of fried shrimp in a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook (circa 1968). It's fairly easy to prepare and is my "go to" fried shrimp recipe. The directions have been summarized/rewritten but the title and ingredients are authentic to the recipe."

New Topic Question: Perfect Rump Roast (294196) in Cooking Q & A

Apr 15, 2012 on Food.com

"I'd like to make this rump roast recipe this week (http://www.food.com/recipe/perfect-rump-roast-294196) but was a little intimidated after reading about the exploding (glass) pans. I have a few options besides glass, but am wondering what the best option would be. I was worried adding the water after searing might somehow warp or damage the roasti..."

Shared Recipe Simple Sausage and Rice Casserole

Oct 27, 2011 on Food.com

"Even the most picky eaters enjoy this simple dish. I have stretched the recipe to include as much as 2 cups of rice when feeding a larger crowd; I've also used brown rice instead of white rice. This brown rice lengthens the cooking time but does not significantly alter the taste (i.e, my children have never noticed the difference). Also, we prefer ..."

New Topic Good quality cutlery at an affordable price in Kitchen Gadgets & Appliances

Oct 26, 2011 on Food.com

"Affordable is so relative, so I'll elaborate. I have been using the same discount store cutlery for years and years and finally treating myself to a nice set of knives. I'd like to stay under $100 but would go higher if I can catch a good sale on an even better set of cutlery. Suggestions? Which set do you like and why? Pros/cons?

Thanks, everyo..."

Oct 25, 2011 in null on Food.com

A big hit with the family. It was a little spicy, but my 8 and 10 year olds still gobbled it up. Only one minor change to the recipe - I had chili beans on hand rather than ranch style beans. Also, we garnished with french onion dip (we ran out of sour cream) as well as cheese and black olives. YUM! UPDATE 10/24/2011 - Subbed black beans for the ...
