Family and I love this recipe. I make twice the meatballs and freeze them for then next batch which saves tons of time and still ends up tasting great!. Keeper.

Mar 29, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is a soup that I can server to my kid to get her to eat vegetables! She loves it and so does the rest of the family. I use 2lbs of Russett potatoes as I'm not a sweet potato fan and extend the recipe with 1C more of broth and half&half for leftovers. I use brick cheddar cheese which I grate myself. It melts much better than pre-shredded...

This dish is a family favorite! It's sometimes hard to find Pappardelle so I substitute wide egg noodles. I use pancetta for the outstanding flavor it brings. This is a keeper!

Loved this dish. Even my picky daughter loved it. I used pancetta and subbed wide egg noodles since my grocery store didn't have pappardelle. This is a keeper in my recipe box.

Dec 15, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Made this exactly to the recipe using Fuji apples. When I first tasted it during the cooking process, it reminded me of apple oatmeal. After it cooked a while longer the flavors started to come together, but I couldn't get past the apple flavor. This is my own personal preference, but I don't like my soups sweet. It did get better the next day,...

Wow! I would make Turkey, just to have the leftovers so I could make this dish. This was great! Even the 10-yr old loved it."

I would never have thought of putting Cabbage in mashed potatoes but this was simply outstanding. I didn't change a thing with this recipe and even my picky 9-yr old who doesn't like mashed potatoes loved this one. Keeper. ""

Feb 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was pretty good. Not an explosion of flavor but a nice hearty soup. I added 1C more Beef Stock than the recipe called for and used Roma Tomatoes instead (all I had). Turned out just fine.""

This was great. The olives at the end gave it that ever so slight tang. Great over rice and even better the next day.""

This was really tasty. I added some Chipoltles in Adobo sauce as I like a little extra heat. Keeper.""

This was great! I tried making gratin potatoes over the years and the results were always mixed among the guests. This year, I made this recipe and everyone loved it. Didn't substitute anything and everyone agrees that this is the recipe I should stick with.""

Dec 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I make several different flavors of Hummus. This was by far the best I've made. I used a store bought roasted red pepper and served this with home made Pita chips. Fantastic!""

The buttermilk absolutely makes this recipe! The biscuits are a must also to soak up that great sauce. Definitely a keeper.""

About as simple of a Christmas treat as you can get, but you will be amazed at how the kids love helping to make it (and eat it afterwards). Put it in a tin and give some to the neighbors as a holiday treat.""

Reviewed Five-Spice Pork With Roasted Oranges and Broccoli

Dec 11, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

While cooking the pork to 145 might be safe, it still left it a little too pink on the inside for some of our liking so we had to put it back in for a bit. The flavor of the pork was amazing though! Even my picky 9-yr old ate it, but wasn't a fan of the roasted vegetables and frankly neither was I. That's just preference though as the recipe w...

Definitely a keeper. Don't be tempted to make the dumplings particularly large or they will just take long to float up. Mine held together for the most part, but I didn't pay attention to the amount of the flour used. I just made sure they were well coated and they turned out fine. You can spice up the marinara sauce any way that you would lik"

I make variations on this dish all the time. Sometimes I substitute a soft cheese in the middle like fontina, or I'll add one Chipoltle pepper in Adobo if I happen to have a jar opened. Delish!"
