I heated some mushrooms with water chestnuts till the shrooms gave off its water and added back into the soup. Also a stalk of lemon grass gave it a nice added layer of taste with the mouthfeel of the chestnuts - YUM! Minor's chicken base is my favorite 100% natural stand by for good broth. This is easy to make and over rice noodles, a great...

Soooo Good! I love this chowder much more the New England style and it is really easy to make.
I used 1- 51 ounce (3lbs 3ounce can of "Cape May Chopped Sea Clams" made by La Monica Foods, Millville NJ, and 3 Tbls. of Minors Crab Base mixed with another 51 ounces of water. If you love to cook, you need Minor's Bases in your fridge when you...

Reviewed Garlic Soup with Creole Croutons

Feb 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The recipe is not clear about the garlic cloves. The best way to make this soup is to take whole garlic cloves with enough olive oil to coat, and roast them to a light brown under an electric grill oven at 350-375. Do NOT be afraid to add more garlic then the recipe calls for, as the garlic really mellows and gets a great nutty taste to it when...

My Ukrainian Wife's Mother takes the uncooked wrapped rolls and quickly gives them a slight brown on the cabbage in a med-hot pan with butter. Then the rolls go into a dutch oven pot or an oval dutch pot with the sauce, in layers. This way, you do not need to romove any foil to baste - just slow cook in the pot for 1 1/2' or longer on lower hea...

Reviewed Beef Stroganoff over Buttered Noodles

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

I used a 2 pound shoulder roast with the gravy stock in a slow cooker. FANTASTIC! Sear the beef and put over the gravy, not in it. I used my favorite Minor's beef base, Marsala wine, doubling all the ingredients for a delicious gravy over rice or noodles! The meat falls apart after 6 hours in a slow cooker with little fuss or time involved, as s...

I do not give a perfect 5-STAR often, but this one was it the first bite! WOW!!!!!

I did not have the Ancho chile powder, so I used my made Emiril's essence - "Bayou Blast" ! This spice mix should always be on hand!

The "Relish" is sooooo good! A very simple recipe, and now I use it for my salad dressing, mix...
