Reviewed Beer Cheese Dip

Dec 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

this is one of our FAVORITE go-to dips ever. You definitely DO NOT heat it!! Although it might be yummy even if you did :) Throw all ingredients into your mixer. I also add about a half cup of mayo. I add the chopped scallions into the dip, not just as a garnish. I also like using Pretzel Chips which are in the deli section of my grocery st"

Dec 10, 2012 in on

Very good, but I've made other recipes for this risotto that I felt were more flavorful. I followed the recipe to a T, and did need a little bit more broth - when I tested it after 20 minutes, it was still too crunchy. I think it took closer to 30 minutes - make sure you test it!!! You do not want crunchy risotto! I added the lemon zest and ...

Jun 11, 2012 in on

So, I usually read a LOT of reviews and tweak a recipe accordingly. For this recipe, I didn't have a lot of time and I didn't want to buy a whole lot of ingredients, so I followed it exactly as written. It was AWESOME! The whole house smelled amazing all day! I put the pork, onion and ginger ale in the crock pot the night before, and then the...

Delicious- used canned cannelini beans and leftover turkey from thanksgiving. This will be THE only way to use up all that leftover turkey in the future!""

Apr 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

BEST ever!!! I am kinda picky about my pimento cheese, and hate the store-bought stuff. I've made it twice and love making grilled pimento cheese with bacon sandwiches! Now, I never do the recipe as stated exactly because I buy the 8 oz philly cream cheese and the recipe calls for 3 oz. I never worry about having to throw out leftovers either!...

HELP!!! Gosh, I don't feel right rating this recipe, because I have no idea what happened! I followed the recipe to a T (I've made scones successfully before, so I kinda know what I'm doing...) and they came out looking gorgeous - BUT, had a weird metallic, burned taste....ew! The ONLY modification I made, which I do when making scones, is that...

Mar 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

delicious, not sure why others thought it was overpowering in lemon or salt....???? found out my arugula was not so fresh, so had to leave it out :( But overall, SUPER yummy. Don't fear curdling the cream and lemon, mine came together easily. I'd say an easy, yummy side or pasta dish, will definitely make again. (felt healthy with the veggies...

Mar 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I don't give out 5 stars often, but this recipe deserves it! Couple things: I completely forgot the dang lemon zest! And this, after running to the store after prepping everything else and realizing my lemon was not so fresh!!! Didn't miss it, but will use next time. ALSO- NEEDS WAY MORE THAN 1/2 CUP CREAM!!! As other reviewers posted, there...

Mar 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I've made this recipe twice and if I didn't know any better, I actually would've rated it a 4 or 5......BUT....I'm testing out scone recipes for an upcoming tea party and I tried Anne Burrell's cherry almond scone recipe. The recipe itself was far better written and the technique was better. Those scones LOOKED way way better - these don't look...

Mar 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

first time EVER with carrot cake and I am just starting to learn how to bake. easy recipe, DELICIOUS results. I would put more icing in between the two layers next time. that layer kinda got lost, because I was worried about having enough for the top. Made a HUGE cake! Did it in an 9 inch round. Didn't use parchment, because the butter/greasing...

Mar 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Bought all of the ingredients and THEN read the reviews...and got scared! I did use two cans of Guinness. I have to admit, I LOVE beer - I drink pale ales or lagers (I would never drink a guinness) but the lovely smell of beer was wonderful! I was SO afraid of the bitterness. I did add carrots that I had on hand, and am glad I did - they worked...

Great caesar dressing recipe! I'm pregnant, so having raw egg yoke is not really ok....and I LOVE Anne, so I tried this. I've NEVER used anchovy before - ew! but it wasn't too bad. You didn't taste it at all, except the dressing had a nice depth of flavor and I didn't have to add ANY salt! The Parm and anchovy was salty enough - but perfectly...

Very good- was looking for a side dish to serve with Aidell's teriyaki meatballs from Costco, and did this with jasmine rice. Really yummy dinner! I didn't use all of the veg, just the ones I like and that were easy to find. The one weird part was "scooping out the aromatics..." I minced the garlic and ginger, and the chili flakes are

Reviewed Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Fresh Herbs and Garlic

Jan 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Made with with the beef wellington - in retrospect, I wish I had done a more typical roasted potato recipe. It's tough to get enough flavor into the potatoes when they're roasted whole. I kept the paper on the garlic and herbs whole like the recipe states, but I think had I chopped them, it may have given the potatoes more flavor (but maybe the...

I, like other reviewers, made this with mixed greens, instead of the winter greens - I was really afraid that the texture and bitterness wouldn't be so great...But let me tell you, the dressing is DELICIOUS! And the toasted nuts and pomegranate seeds and parm were perfect. I do think you could do a mild blue cheese too. grocery store used...

I followed the recipe to a T, with the exception of forgetting the dijon. I had an exactly 3 lb tenderloin, and cooked it for 45 minutes, but should have taken it out at 40 I think. You don't want to overcook this cut of beef. Buy TWO packages of the puff pastry - I rolled out the two from my package (pepperidge farm, I think) and it was ever so...

Wonderful! Like another reviewer, I had no idea asparagus could be this yummy! I will be making this over and over again! Great recipe and so different! (Easy and cheap too!)
