Reviewed Toasted Couscous Salad

Feb 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I made this with quinoa rather than the couscous. It got rave reviews. My son, who was eating quinoa for the first time, said it was one of the best salads I'd ever made. Thank you, Guy!""

Reviewed Moroccan Chicken with Shredded Cabbage and Tahini Sauce on Pita

Feb 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was excellent! I did it on the stove top in a deep skillet. The chicken was very tender. The only thing I would change would be to use a bit more lemon so it can stand out just a touch more. The tahini sauce was so good it almost caused a domestic dispute. I asked hubby to taste it to see if it had enough salt. He said it was perfect bu...

This was excellent served with creamy polenta. I made a few changes because I was too lazy to go out into the cold to get to the store. I used green pepper and added a bit of sugar to make up for the sweetness of the red bell. I cut the wine in half as my husband doesn't like more than a hint. I used dried herbs and didn't have capers. Bonel...

Dec 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Super delicious! My husband, son and I really enjoyed this side dish. I served it alongside a glazed ham steak. Instead of bacon, I used pancetta. The only problem I had (my fault, not the recipe's) is by the time the potatoes started to crisp, some of my onions burned. I'll have to be more vigilant next time, but it was still absolutely yum...

Reviewed Roasted Cauliflower with Parmesan and Pancetta

Dec 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is comfort food at its finest! However, a $55 side dish isn't something I'll make often. Why so expensive? The only place around here that sells pancetta is an Italian market, Romanelli's. I can never leave without the tiramisu, cannoli, cheesecake, espresso, olives, etc. This is my absolute favorite veggie dish. :0) ""

Dec 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was delicious and very "takeout authentic." I doubled the sauce as some suggested but put too much cornstarch in. The sauce was still wonderful, but harder to lick off the plates because it stuck. :0) I used shrimp rather than beef but will try it with beef. Good stuff!""

Wow! The roast was a thing of beauty. It truly was "like buddah, baby". I took a peek at six hours, and a meat fork went through with little resistance. Yes, I know stabbing a hunk of meat with a fork isn't the best thing to do, but I couldn't find my instant read thingy. The meat even stayed together transferring it to a cutting board for sh...

Reviewed Turkey Burger

Sep 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

These are rock star turkey burgers! Like a few other reviewers, I went easy on the soy and chili sauce (I used Thai sweet chili garlic sauce), My taster patty saved the day because it needed quite a bit more, even though I only had one pound of ground turkey. I left the water chestnuts out as I'm not a huge fan unless they're in a stir fry. N...

Yummy, gooey chicken goodness!

lauriescario_77, Don't become discouraged. Those of us who are experienced can assure you that any glaze or sauce containing sugar (whether natural or refined) will blacken in some area. But only if you do it right. Also, you may not be aware that, although a show may seem seamless, we...
