i thought this recipe was really easy and really good- especially the following 2 days. I added zucchini & green squash to mine to give it a more chunky feel - the same time I added the fresh mushrooms. I also didn't have the porcini mushrooms so instead of using that water like the recipe called for i used vegetable broth and it turned out fine. "

Sep 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought the sauce was good, not as much flavor as I like in my marinara sauce. I had to add dry basil and oregano and extra garlic cloves to give it more flavor but overall, I enjoyed it and served with wheat angel hair pasta."

I followed the recipe to the T and my family felt the sauce was totally overpowering. Also once the chicken was put back in the sauce to simmer for 5 minutes, all of the flower began to get soggy and gross even though it was a light coat. SO disappointed :("

these were delicious!!! I did 1/4 cup of brown sugar instead since most reviews said it was a bit too sweet. I also divided cinnamon with half of that and half nutmeg. I used golden raisins and regular ones just to mix it up. they truly don't need any syrup cuz they're so sweet on their own but it would be dry without it. We just topped ours with "

This recipe is a hit in my family!!! I've made it twice already and both times, everyone loved it. I used plain old ground beaf and watever spicy italian sausage was on sale at the market. You'd think ricotta cheese is what you need but the cottage cheese is MUCH cheaper and tastes great!!

Btw, i DID NOT cook the pasta in water...

My family really enjoyed this recipe and said it had great flavor! I used wheat buns instead. I used ground turkey instead of ground chicken because that's all our super market had. I used valentina for the hot sauce. I also made a chipotle mayo to eat with it since my hubby only eats spicy food to also give it an extra kick and since he doesn't l"

I'm disappointed ;( these sounded so good so I wanted to give it a try but for some reason, not as exciting as the reviews made them. The fish was really good but I couldn't taste much of the tequila in them and the batter was super crispy on the fish (used tilapia instead because it's much cheaper) but def. time consuming. If you don't have tempu"

This was SUPER easy and SUPER delicious. I bought some french baguette and mixed greens and put some of the tuna on the baguette with some jack cheese, melted it and topped with greens and made the perfect lunch!! I was hesitant about the cilantro but actually it's yummy. The lemon is perfect, i also reduced the mayo (only put about a 1/4-1/2 cup)"

This recipe is delicious!!! I also added some lemon zest to it to give it some brightness and it was a perfect twist. I also roasted some chinese eggplant and chicken with olive oil, salt and pepper and fresh thyme and made a full dinner out of it. It's def. on that fattier side but it's worth it!"

Aug 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was yummy but either I did something wrong or not sure? It kind of fell apart at some points when making the patties and when frying it. I also thing that crab cakes can be heavy because they absorb so much oil and have mayo in them. Instead of tartar sauce I made a chipotle mayo because my family likes some spicy things but overall, g"

I thought this recipe was really interesting so I figured I'd test it out. It was SO GOOD. I made mini sliders out of the recipe and made a spicy chipotle mayo to put on the crisp buns and topped each burger with a roasted corn salsa and it was the PERFECT combo!!!!!

Recipe is to die for!!! I got everyone at home eating it and it was such a piece of cake!! I left out the lime/lemon juice, i didn't feel it was necessary. You can use any cheese you want, don't feel limited to the one the recipe calls for but a saltier cheese thats hard would be best. YUM Yum YUM I also had something similar to this once dining o"
