Jan 28, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I added a small can of creamed corn and took out 1/2 cup of milk. These were amazing! I had some leftover batter, so I experimented- I put the batter in a mug and microwaved it for 1 min. 30- mug cake!"

I used the recipe in the magazine when I made this and it came out perfect!"

Reviewed Braised Clams with Shrimp and Chorizo

Aug 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

It was delicious- I made a few adaptations as I was cooking, though. 1. I only had 8 fl oz of clam juice, so I added another cup of wine for more liquid. 2. I let the wine reduce before adding the clams. 3. I took the casings off the chorizo (it doesn't specify- just a personal preference)."

"This rice is like heaven!" said my husband. I can't wait to experiment with other additions besides peas!"

I added sage and some cremini mushrooms to the mix, doubled the recipe, and used goat cheese instead of Parm for a Pinot Noir-themed dinner tonight- these mushrooms got rave reviews! Great recipe as always!"

They were delicious but fell apart- maybe I needed an extra egg. I did drain first, like previous posters mentioned."

Reviewed Pork Chops Stuffed with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Spinach

May 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The porkchops were good- I couldn't taste the goat cheese in the filling. I might increase it next time and decrease the amount of lemon in the sauce."

This tasted just like the Chicken Francaise at my favorite restaurant in NYC- I'm so happy that I can make it at home!""

Reviewed Scalloped Potato Gratin

Mar 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So easy- my husband said it was like a deep dish potato pizza. One thing to note was that there was lots of salt from seasoning the potatoes every step- next time I will season them all in a small bowl before layering.""

Reviewed Baked Shrimp Scampi

Mar 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! A pumped-up alternative to my MIL's garlic shrimp. I think I overmixed the butter, because it made more of a paste than a crumble, but it still tasted great!""

This was phenomenal! I omitted the asparagus, but followed everything else to the letter- a great weeknight or entertaining dish!""

Reviewed Lasagna Rolls

Feb 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My husband gave it a 20 out of 10! He said the only thing that would make it better would be to serve it with lobster or filet mignon! One quick note- we did forget to add the parmesan into the filling, so I just added it all on top with the mozzarella, and it was still phenomenal.""

Reviewed Buffalo Chicken Sliders

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

These were so crispy and light- great for a quick weeknight meal. I tasted the first piece, and thought it didn't have enough kick, so I drizzled some hot sauce over as they came out of the pan, and they definitely ended up with more flavor to them.""

Reviewed Panko-Crusted Salmon

Jan 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! I forgot to drizzle the olive oil over the bread crumb mixture, so it dropped off the sides when we cut into the fish, but that was my silly mistake. Also, my husband said it tasted better the next day! It cooked excellently- Ina is the best!""

Wonderful and delicious, as a first time roast-er! Served it with egg noodles, and it was scrumptious!""

Reviewed Bacon and Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Jan 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious, and a top 5 dish, according to my husband. I substituted Cheddar for Blue, and only had boneless skinless on hand, but they turned out great! I sprinkled a few breadcrumbs on top of each one for a little extra crunch. My husband is very excited about the butter compound waiting in the fridge!""

Reviewed Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

Nov 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just made this tonight- I substituted chicken stock for vegetable stock since I realized midway into browning the meat that I didn't have any! Also, my sauce didn't thicken very much...is it supposed to be more like au jus, or more like a gravy? Nevertheless, it tasted delicious!""

Nov 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I liked it, but I think it might have been better to dredge the pork chops in flour first before cooking them. Other than that, it was pretty good!""

Reviewed Gnocchi and Pork Bolognese Sauce

Sep 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just made this and it turned out amazing, but I made some substitutions and omissions: first, I used fresh gnocchi from a pasta shop in town. Then, I used sweet Italian sausage instead of pork- it was what I had on hand: just make sure to take the casings off and chop it down to bite sized pieced before you brown it. Third, I used 16 oz of to...
