Reviewed Steamed Mahi Mahi with Vegetables and Garlic Mustard Sauce

Apr 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was wonderful!! I made it for my fiancee and I last night. I have never had steamed fish of any kind. It was bursting with flavor! I will definitely be making this again! Full flavor. Easy prep. 5 Stars."

My fiancee and I were incredibly impressed with the flavor and taste of this dish. It was, however, quite a bit of prep work. My only complaint is that there's a lot of extra fat in this dish with the milk, cheese, and pasta. BUT, this isn't supposed to be a healthy dish, so take it for what you will. Great taste. Intermediate prep. 4 stars."

Unfortunately, I'm done. This is the 5th recipe I've tried from Robin and all of them have come out poorly. The flavor of the chicken was decent, but I had the same problem as other reviewers in that everything coating the chicken stayed in the pan (I even used a non-stick skillet and some spray). I used freshly grated Parmesan, but it just didn't...

A little bit spicy for my girlfriend's tastes, but I thought it was wonderful! Excellent recipe!"

Feb 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love sloppy joes and this vegetarian spin left me smiling. I prefer the beef ones, but this was still a great joe. I might coarsely mash the beans next time as they kept falling off the bun, but the flavor was right and my girlfriend and I kept going back for more!"

These were delicious! I didn't have any red wine vinegar on me so I substituted 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and 1 tablespoon red wine (not the same I know, but it gave the sauce a great flavor!). These were so easy to make, smelled mouth-watering while cooking, and tasted better than they smelled."

Feb 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this! I added green beans and carrots and it came out wonderful. The sauce wasn't gravy thick, but it came out like a pot roast. This is definitely going on my share list."

Sorry food network, but this was not alfredo (at least to me anyway). I was so excited about trying an alfredo sauce without all the calories, but this just tasted like pureed califlower sauce mixed with peas over pasta.

Reviewed Egg Rolls

Feb 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these for a Sunday snack. The egg rolls were very good! I really didn't care for the dipping sauce, so I threw it out and made a sweet and sour sauce, but the egg rolls tasted just fine without sauce anyway. I was a little worried about using wonton wrappers instead of egg roll wrappers, but they came out crispy, tasty, and finger-food-sized....

This soup was amazing! Absolutely rocked my socks (and my family too)! You're awesome Ina.

Jan 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I had high hopes for this recipe, but it just didn't come out right. I did everything that the recipe said. My egg whites can out nice and formed good soft peaks, but when I added the powdered sugar (to quote heatherdamerow) "wham!" the egg whites lost all of their depth and the batter turned into a big creamy soup. I beat the batter for 2 minutes,...

Reviewed Almost-Famous Pumpkin Cheesecake

Jan 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have never gotten so many compliments for anything else I've made. The cheesecake came out moist and wonderful! I used margarine instead of butter for the crust (mistake, made the crust batter too thin and the crust wouldn't stay up the sides of the pan). I ended up adding a lot more crumbs, but I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Perfect...
