Reviewed pasta alla ladd

Aug 18, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this yesterday. Prepared it in the AM and then reheated the sauce and freshly cooked the pasta for dinner.Reminds me of the "goulash" my mother made with a few changes. My husband loved it. The rigatoni make it a bigger, filling entree. I added a few drops of Lea and Perrin's Worchestershire sauce, but just a little so you still notice the...

Good recipe. Husband loved it.Will make again. I will add some veggies.It took me about 40min to make and I am fairly good with the knife. No amount of noodles was specified, just one box.My box was 14oz. I did not use most of the noodles, but had no idea what the dish would look like so I just added them until it looked OK. Next time I will figure...

Thanksgiving toasts included "Best Turkey Ever!". No more searches for a better recipe. Nope. I am done. This is it. Moist and tasty.
My aromatics were rosemary, sage, onion and lemon.
Don't forget to pre make the breast plate.
Thank you, Alton. Excellent work. Excellent.

Would like to add that brining...

Very tasty and a good non meat meal. We tried it tonight. Would make it again. We loved it.Great taste, texture and flavor.
However,
I suggest you drain the pasta, but keep some pasta water and add it to taste when you need it.
A couple of other ideas: add some lemon zest or a bit of lemon or lime juice.Another time you...

Reviewed Martha Stewart's Banana Bread

Apr 12, 2012 in on Food.com

This is my only banana bread recipe . I get constant compliments on it. I stopped looking and gave up the others.
I only use sweet butter and leave out the nuts. Once in a while I throw in the cho chips,
but I think they detract from the buttery banana vanilla flavors."

Reviewed Tangy Sweet Potatoes

Jun 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My husband was worried.He was suspicious of the ingredients. I kept saying "Rachel said to trust her". I did. She was right. The buttermilk, marmalade, hot sauce and brown sugar work.
They are really good. I am usually just butter and S&P for sweet potatoes and I hate the sweet stuff at Thanksgiving. These are different. Try 'em. You can...

Mar 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I found this recipe in March 14 PEOPLE mag. I love risotto and have worked on honing my technique that I first learned in one of Marcella Hazan's cookbooks. I practice. Some are great. Some are not, I screw up, but the process is wonderful. I tried this. I was a little worried about the 2 cups of white wine. But, no, this is great. The wine compliments...

Reviewed Parker House Rolls

Nov 23, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Made them today for Thanksgiving. Baked some fresh to "road test".Froze the others. I made them because Alex is a judge and expected an excellent Parker House. My advice? Pick up some at the store.These were dense and lacked flavor.There was an underlying flavor that was lard like, even though I used very good butter and all organic ingredients...
