Reviewed Baked Rigatoni with Bechamel Sauce

Aug 20, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Tasty and easy. I made a healthier version by using almond milk instead of whole milk, and ground turkey instead of prosciutto. I also left out the nutmeg since almond milk adds just enough nuttiness. I normally don't like Giatta's recipes since she complicates the basics, but this one is a keeper. "

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

This was my first bread pudding ever and I have no doubt one of the best recipes out there, but to me it was a bit too sweet, a bit too runny, and 2 hours of baking I don't think it's worth it. Yes I had to bake it for two hours because the custard was still in liquid form.. If you are a big fan of this dish then I'm sure you will be more impresse"

Delicious! I love all the interesting additions for this mac and cheese, the bay leaf, the onion, the mustard powder..if you know your cooking you will appreciate this over the plain flavorless mac and cheese for children. This is definitely more of an adult mac and cheese and not all kids will like it. For those complaining that it doesn't look a"

Both my husband and I love mushrooms so this recipe is a regular in our house. The smell of mushrooms, sage, garlic, and thyme is amazinggggg on a crisp fall evening. I've made this recipe over and over again. No meat needed here. Super quick, delicious, and easy for a weeknight dinner. I'm making it again tonight and I'm already drooling in antic"

Made this yesterday with my little nephew's help and wow was this tasty! For some reason I didn't expect it to be so delicious but it was. The presentation is wonderful too with whipped cream on top and sprinkled cinnamon, yummy! I followed the recipe except used only about 12 ounces of sugar having read the reviews of it being too sweet. I'm glad"

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

I made this dish twice so far in my cast iron Dutch oven, and I love it! I cut the recipe in half this time and used 1.5 lbs of meat. I threw in whole red potatoes and followed the recipe from there. It only took 2 hours of time on very low temp. The tomatoes act as tenderizer so leave them out at your own risk, but I think they're essential to m"

I made this dish twice so far in my cast iron Dutch oven, and I love it! It's so simple yet tasty. After browning the meat throw in the veggies, lower the temp and let it do its magic. I made it last night and my husband said it's the best pot roast ever. It's easy whether you're making it for a small family or a big crowd. This is definitely one "

Oct 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very tasty! For a healthier meal I omitted the bacon and didn't miss it at all. I ended up cooking the bourguignon in the oven for 2.5 hours and the consistency of beef was very tender and falling apart. Yum! Just an FYI, if you cook it for shorter time you will get a firmer texture."

Aug 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

It was alright, definitely not outstanding as the reviews make it out to be. My kids thought it was awful - they hated the mustard glaze. I've made better tasting salmon with 1/2 time and just salt & pepper. "

Aug 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Excellent, don't need to change a thing. Comes out perfect every time. It's ridiculously simple and easy and needs to be a staple in every home. It only requires a few ingredients that I always have on hand. Never again will I attempt to make peach cobbler with nasty hard crust that most recipes have. "

Very quick, easy, and tasty! I am a picky cook and eater, and if I don't love the dish, I won't make it again. This will definitely be a repeat.The only changes I made because I was short on time is that I bought rotisserie chicken and used that instead, and also used Bisquick mix to make dumplings( about 1 cup flour and 3/4 water). Since it was s"

Delicious cupcakes, thank you Ina! Everyone who tried them loved them. I halved the recipe to make exactly 12 cupcakes and they were delicious. I even ate some on a third day, and was surprised how soft they still were. My fiance and I love Sprinkles cupcakes, and once he tried these he said "I would pick these over Sprinkles any day".

I love any chicken/lemon combo and this recipe results in quite flavorful dish. I don't care for capers so I omit them. I've made this several times and make sure to double up on liquid ingredients. It won't be nearly enough sauce with stated amounts since you have to let the sauce simmer for a few minutes and half of it will evaporate."

For me personally these are just good, not excellent. A tad on the sweet side coupled with so much tang, gives me shivers. The crust is on the hard side and not impressive to this picky baker : I can only eat a bite or two. However, my fiance and my brother are big lemon fans and LOVE these bars. I made them twice, once with just sugar on top and "

Very good and easy pasta sauce that I have made multiple times. It takes time to roast the tomatoes so it isn't ideal for weeknight meal, I make it on the weekends. I always use fresh tomatoes, I don't like anything canned. They turn out fantastic every time. I also have substituted red wine before and it's delicious.I've made it with 1/4 teaspoon"

Best chocolate cake I ever had! I'm very picky with food in general and will not repeat a recipe unless I love it. Never been a big fan of chocolate cake but this one changed my mind. I will save it in my favorites and definitely make again. I followed the recipe except I left out coffee powder from the icing. I also baked it for 30 mins only, whi"
