Reviewed Hash Brown Potatoes

Nov 17, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Absolutely delicious! This was the first time I ever made hash browns and these were amazing! I would probably add a little less Thyme next time, especially since it's already present in the Essence spice-it was just a little overwhelming. This did not effect my rating though because it was easier than I thought to make and it tasted great. Essence...

Mar 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made this bread pudding and it was delicious. I used Italian bread instead of Brioche because I couldn't find any and I let the bread stale before I used it. This made for a less soggy and watery mixture (although I used 1% milk because that's what I had). I used an 8x8 baking pan and I'm not sure if that's why it took longer to cook (added...

Mar 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These came out amazing, I had to swat my husband out of the kitchen otherwise we wouldn't have had any for dinner. I followed the recommendation to rinse then dry the potatoes which was a great tip. It did take twice as long for me to fry them, but I'm pretty sure it was because I tried to fry too many at one time so that's on me. Even with ju...

Mar 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Never had a Reuben before, but wanted to try it and Yum Yum Yum! Instead of slicing the corned beef then warming up, I put a brisket in the slow cooker and then cut it up in thicker slices, which was amazing. If you're considering not making the dressing to save time, it is SO worth it. Very flavorful and had me licking my fingers at the end. ...

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

Very easy to make and love the smoky flavor the peppers and adobo sauce gave. I love spicy chili so next time I may add another pepper or more adobo sauce, but it was still fantastic. I would definitely cook this again and serve it with some cornbread.""

Dec 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was delish! I did peel the apples though because Granny Smith apples have a tough skin and I was worried it wouldn't work. The pie was so flavorful and the pecans gave it a little bit of a crunch which was a pleasant surprise. I would make this one again!""

Reviewed Beef Tenderloin with Fresh Horseradish and Black Pepper Crust

Dec 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I give this meal 5 stars for flavor, but four because (luckily) I paid attention to concerns from other reviews as to how short the cook time was. For those that are afraid to cook it because of that--Just cook the meat 18 minutes for every pound. That's what I did and it was FANTASTIC! The meat just melts in your mouth. I did not find the ho...

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

YUM! I was a little nervous about this one as I was assembling it, but it was delicious! Very easy to make and I'm really looking forward to the leftovers. I was considering adding shredded chicken next time I make it, but either way I'll definitely make it again."

Jul 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very work intensive as frying all the zucchini took about an hour and I had a large fry pan to fit a large amount of zucchini. The flavor left much to be desired, even my son who will try anything, spit it out. My husband who is a big eater was not impressed and myself who loves zucchini did not go back for seconds. We ended up throwing out wha"

Jun 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very Easy, Very Flavorful, Very Yummy! I loved this especially for a quick side dish. Not sure why the person below said too much half n half, there's no half n half in this recipe. I added a little less butter and used Chicken Ramen noodles instead of Oriental since that's what they had at the store, it was great. "

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

Read the recipe people because someone here said 1 Cup of salt was too much, but it doesn't say to add 1 Cup of salt. That's the recipe for the House Seasoning and your only adding a Tablespoon. Either way I would omit some of the salt, it was a salty dish, which many people complained about, but I wanted to see if it was salty on my scale. Omit...

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

I feel bad for a low rating, because I love Paula's recipes, but this just didn't do it for me. Not much flavor (I even added a bit more of the house season before cooking) and onions didn't do much for me. It made the house smell great, but ended up being a disappointment.

Great as a kids meal, but for adults it didn't have alot of flavor. If I make these again, I'll follow some ideas from previous reviews.

This came out great and my neighbors loved it! It was a lot of prep and I made the enchilada sauce from scratch (recipe given from another rater for this recipe below) which was awesome. I had to look up the recipe for Mexican Spice Blend which was:
1 T Cumin
1 T Dried Parsley Flakes
1 T Ground Ginger

Dec 31, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was super easy and delicious! My husband raved about the flavor of the potatoes and I mashed up the potatoes a little before pouring just a little butter over the top. For anyone making this recipe and unsure of how long to boil the potatoes, I boiled my potatoes for about 20-25 minutes and they were perfect.

Very easy to make and loved the texture of the sweet potatoes; however I felt that the recipe was missing just a little more flavor. I probably will add a little nutmeg and cinnamon next time to give it that something more. I will definitely try this one again.

WOW! This dish was easy to make (about 45 minutes from start to finish) and was VERY flavorful. I can't wait to make it again. The pepper's did not make it too spicy and my two year old liked the flavor which was a plus.
