Reviewed Macaroni and Cheese

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

EXCELLENT recipe and I only made 2 small changes. Based on several reviews about it being a bit soupy, I used 4 teaspoons of flour instead of 2. I also topped it with 1 cup of Panko breadcrumbs mixed with 4 tablespoons of melted butter. It browned beautifully and gave the dish a wonderful crunch. I found that extra-wide egg noodles, COOKED AL DENTE,...

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

Couldn't be easier to make and so delicious. I made a quadruple batch and froze it. I added a couple tablespoons of Italian seasoning and 2 bay leaves and simmered it for about 30 minutes as I like my sauce a bit thicker. Today I mixed a quart of the sauce with a pound of browned Italian sausage and will make a penne pasta with Parmesan cheese that...

Absolutely delicious! I made 8 ribs instead of 6 for 4 people and there were none left. They were that good. This is an EASY recipe to make, especially since you brown the ribs in the oven (so easy and much less messy). Chopping the veggies took me about half an hour (my knife skills are not up to Tyler Florence's standards at all). It is a several...

Nov 21, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This was a very good mushroom soup. Suggestions: 1. For me, the ham was strictly optional as the soup was delicious without it. 2. Next time I will use all chicken broth or 3/4 chicken broth and 1/4 beef broth instead of adding the water. 3. Use twice the amount of sherry called for if you want to savor the flavor of it. I pondered whether or...

Reviewed Braised and Roasted Domestic Lamb Shank with Gorgonzola Crust, and Lamb Braising Juices

Oct 14, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This recipe was a disappointment. We did prepare it exactly as written but did not find the lamb shanks or the rosemary mashed potatoes to be as flavorful as we would have hoped. It was hard to get the Gorgonzola crust to stick to the lamb but it was what saved the meal. The crust would be good on other meats. The mashed potatoes needed salt....
