Reviewed chipotle cream shrimp

6 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

Can't believe this recipe got so many excellent reviews! I have made several of Marcela's recipes and my favorite is her summer seafood cocktail, but this one was a total mess. None of my family liked it. And they LOVE shrimp. Everyone ate a bite or two and then left it on their plate. I made it exactly to the recipe too! Don't know what else...

Outstanding seafood cocktail!

Made this with 2 lbs. of fresh jumbo shrimp.

I also made 4x's the sauce and am so glad I did! It was perfect for 2 lbs of shrimp. The only other thing I did was add 3 jumbo Haas avocados - diced - into the mixture - instead of cucumber. (It's what they do in California!)

Jun 18, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is the kind of recipe that you can alter to fit your own tastes.

I made this with caramelized onions and thin slices of ham to copy a favorite "Lorraine" dish that my family loves.

I also added two crushed garlic cloves and a little bit of Parmesan cheese to the cream cheese mixture (Along with the Italian...

This is the dinner I remember from childhood. It's much easier to make if you forgo the roasting and just boil the chicken (I added heaping TB of Better than Bouillon - Chicken to the chicken stock while boiling for extra flavor).

The only thing different that I did was add an extra egg and an additional TB. of baking powder to...

I use this recipe whenever I have company and need extra side dishes. Everybody loves it. I went over to my friend's house and she had chopped up and added a fresh jalapeno. It was delicious!

Play around with this recipe because it is a no-fail one. You're gonna love it!"

Outstanding! Best Mexican rice recipe I've ever found. Been making this for years. I do add another jalapeno because when it cooks down, it loses it's "heat", I also add more seasoning. Seriously, this is THE recipe for great Mexican rice. Warning: it does make a LOT of rice. Use your biggest, covered skillet. I also add frozen corn and somet"

Like others before me, I tinkered with the recipe a bit. I roasted a 3lb. butternut squash (split for 2 hours in a 350 degree oven. I added 3 pears - also split - for the last 30 minutes.

I put the peeled, roasted squash, pears, only 1/2 onion, and the chicken stock in a large pot to cover. Used my immersion blender (Or as Emeril...

Excellent recipe. I added a bit more lemon juice and zest for a really tangy flavor. "

This is my standard stuffing to which I usually add other ingredients such as sauteed mushrooms (Cooked in lots of butter), dried apricots, and sometimes, sage sausage. You really can't go wrong as everybody loves traditional bread stuffing."

Reviewed Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Maple Cinnamon Sage Brown Butter

Nov 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I found that by mashing the sweet potatoes the night before and then refrigerating them overnight leaves them firm and not too sticky. It takes less flour that way and makes them fluffy. Another key ingredient I used was two eggs, which helped bind the sweet potato mixture together . . . and again, helped to make the gnocchi light and tender.<...

Made a few changes, but this is the best banana pudding/pie mix ever!

My recipe:
Used banana pudding mix instead of French vanilla. Left out the whipped cream. Poured into a banana slice-lined, cookie pie crust. Drizzled the top with chocolate syrup and it turned out absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Seriously, it looked like something...
