Reviewed Chianti Marinated Beef Stew

Aug 29, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is seriously the BEST beef stew I've ever had! It was so fantastic! I threw it all in the crockpot with the herbs on the top for 5-6 hours on high. You could probably do it on low for 8-10 hours. I only used 2 cups of beef stock as I'm not a huge fan of "soupy" soups. There was still enough liquid to keep it moist and delicious! Definit"

This might be THE BEST chicken and mushroom gravy recipe. I chopped everything ahead of time so all my ingredients would be ready. But this is such a fantastic sauce! The meatiness of the mushrooms pairs really well with the strong woody rosemary and balances out with the chicken! LOVE THIS!"

I totally love this cake! I followed it exactly with the syrup and brown sugar despite other recommendations. It was so moist and STAYED moist! It has just the right balance!!!"

Reviewed Butternut Squash with Pecans and Blue Cheese

Oct 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I absolutely love this! I used 1/2 of my butternut squash for a different recipe and used the remaining half in this. I used salt, pepper, and dried thyme with a little olive oil and roasted the squash in the slow cooker. Next time, I will watch it a little closer because when I sliced the squash, it was a mushy. Still delicious though. I had"

Oct 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I absolutely love this! Such wonderful fall flavors! I did it a bit differently. I put everything in the slow cooker: butternut squash, large onion, 3 large garlic cloves, and chicken stock. For the spices, I kicked it up a knotch with 2 tsp of curry powder, 1 tsp of tumeric, and a 1/2 tsp of powdered ginger. It definitely has a kick, but i...

Reviewed Butternut Squash and Vanilla Risotto

Sep 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I absolutely loved this recipe! Instead of boiling the squash, I slow cooked it in the crock pot with the chicken broth and vanilla bean for about 8 hours. I strained it the next day and saved the squash broth. Then when I went to cook the risotto I had all the flavor of the broth and the fully cooked squash! It was so wonderfully flavorful! ...

Reviewed Slow Cooker Beef with Root Vegetables

Sep 19, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This might be THE BEST roast recipe I've ever had! I did some substitutions though. I had about a 2 lbs venison roast instead of the beef. My grocery store didn't have turnips or rutabegas - so my veggies were: onion, 5 huge garlic cloves (instead of the powder), 4 carrots, 4 parsnips, and 2 big sweet potatoes. I also didn't have cumin, beca...

May 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just made this and it is fantastic!!!! I did make a few changes. I added 2 tbsp of tahini, the zest of the lemon before I juiced it, and I roasted 4 large garlic cloves with the eggplant in the oven. Gave it GREAT flavor! I'm a huge Giada fan and I absolutely love this!!!"

I used the "beer can chicken" method of cooking with this recipe. I marinated a whole chicken for about 10 hrs and then poured the marinade into a turkey canon. Then I cooked the whole chicken on the grill for 1.5 hrs. So it marinated AND was cooked with the marinade. I was disappointed. The chicken was moist, but I expected more flavor. I e"

I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!! I upped the sauce by another tbsp of butter/flour and milk as a few others mentioned. I also added WAY more cheese...but I'm a cheese lover. It turned out really awesome! It fit in a 9x13 pan for me and I plan on eating off this all week! Thanks Rachel! "
