Reviewed slow-cooker chinese beef and bok choy

Dec 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this last night and it was very good. The beef melted in your mouth and the flavor was delightful. Will definitely make this again. Also, so easy to make. I went to lunch with a friend and had nothing to prepare when I got home which was a treat in itself.

Apr 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I have made several of Giada's recipes and most times enjoyed the results, but this one just didn't meet my expectations. The cheese was very strong in taste; should have used less. I made the asparagus first; which remained cold. I could go on and on, but loved the egg on top. It was edible, but will not try this one again. Other sites have a better...

Reviewed lemon-parmesan roasted potatoes

Apr 21, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

These were excellent. The parmesan gave the potatoes a crisp and crunchy exterior and a soft interior. To save time and an extra pan to clean, I used the bagged steamed potatoes. Just pop in the microwave and then roast. I had too many breadcrumbs. I would definitely cut back on what the recipe calls for. These are a keeper.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was terrific. I only made one change to the recipe which was adding 1/2 wine for the water. Also, I added spinach to the tomato sauce which was awesome. I simmered my sauce for about 30-40 minutes so the garlic and herbs had a chance to be infused with the crushed tomatoes. I served this with mashed potatoes and...

Reviewed Classic Chicken Parmesan

Dec 19, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is delicious. The chicken was extremely moist and the sauce is right on the money. One review noted that the sauce didn't thicken. I made mine ahead of meal time and let it simmer. It definitely thickened on itself. Will make this again. Served with a small portion of angel hair pasta on the side.

This is a delightful dinner. I followed the recipe exactly. For those that said the sauce was bland, I certainly can't agree. I allowed the sauce to thicken before I returned the chops to the pan. To the sauce, I did add 1 clove of garlic and it was delicious. I will definitely make this again."
