Reviewed Grilled Steak with Green Beans, Tomatoes and Chimichurri Sauce

Jan 17, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

A definite go to recipe not only for ease of prep and cook time, but the punch of flavors! If you are condo bound, the veggies can be sauteed on the stove top. And personally, I loved the taste of using boneless thin sliced chuck roast. The chimichurri sauce is what ties everything together!"

Mar 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I love this recipe when I am looking for a light pasta dish especially during summer time eating. I love the combination of the lemon, white wine, and basil that compliment the artichoke, which provides texture to the meal. And I agree with User Danp105 on the technique. I prefer to brown the chicken and then add the components. It fills you up w...

This soup was super easy and packed in such a powerful punch of complex flavors. Definitely a great comfort food dish like when your sick or needing a hearty meal. And this was my introduction to kale and now I love love the vegetable. I have used collard greens as a substitute when kale was out of stock at my grocer; it didn't sacrifice flavor b...

I agree with both users that this is a wonderful and easy recipe that makes such a beautiful presentation on the table to guests. Like Chasedad said, I prefer balsamic vinegar and fresh oregano. My guests raved over the feta because the two suggested changes did add subtle complexity to the simplicity of this dish!""

I take this recipe for it's intended use. Quick, simple and relatively tasty with fresh ingredients. I do agree with most of the users that I would not use the taco seasoning. The spices are so dominant that it hides the fish and all you are left with is strong residue of cumin. The second go around, I just cooked the fish with S&P with a panko c...

This was such a smash at our last dinner party. I agree with User Sdritchie about the glaze. We loved just eating the fruit with the cream. It can be both an appetizer and a dessert because the greek yogurt just melts sinfulness in your mouth!""

The surprising easiness of this recipe belies it's flavor. The lemony broth is balanced out with the flavor of the rostisserie chicken, bay leaves and parmesan rind. Every time I am sick, this is my fave recipe to make for pick-me-upper. I think the simple flavors just leaves recipients with a big hug of goodness!""

Mar 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This recipe is incredibly easy without compromising flavor. However, I substituted panko breadcrumbs for the flour and it adds an extra crunch. However, use only a pinch of salt to balance out the flavor from the panko. Definitely a go to recipe for those hectic weeks!""

This was decadent! I tried both Claire's original recipe and the suggested recipe for the chocolate mousse from one of her readers (thank you so much for the share) and love love love both! Mind you, I'm not a baker and this made me look like an expert :)""
