Reviewed Slow Cooked French Dip

Jan 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

OMG. This is amazing. So easy and delicious, the leftovers are just as good. This is a new staple in my home. First Aaron recipe that I've made and I'm so impressed. I used slices of herbed Fontina as the cheese and got par-baked french bread BUT, this recipe is fail-proof! Great job Aaron!""

These were light and delicious (and impressive)!! A winner! way to go Giada! I trust Giada but was making these for a Holiday party last minute and didn't want to mess anything up so I read all the reviews and made a few small changes. Because some people said that their mascarpone curdled, I simply left out the lemon juice. Although I know ...

This is now my go-to easy pork chop recipe! it was very flavorful, and juicy. My boyfriend and I loved it. Great job Neelys! Although this recipe rates 5 stars, some of the reviews worried me. I was concerned about the syrup ingredient tasting funny, and that some people said the sauce is meant to be thin. I was imagining a thick crusty sauce...

This was just ok. Wasn't worth the effort. Sorry Paula. I even read all the reviews and took peoples advice..only 2 eggs, not too much bell pepper etc.""

This really is perfect. And simple! I am just learning to cook so roasting a chicken seemed daunting. Glad I have this recipe under my belt! It's the only one I'll use in the future. Delicious.""

I LOVE this recipe. I was hesitant because it is so simple but it is really delicious! I used good quality bread and olive oil. It is so simple and really tasty. Its a great finger food for get-togethers of any kind. I almost tried to add an ingredient to it like prosciutto or pear but glad I didn't. It does not need it. The sweet and savo...

Reviewed Sour Cream Pork Chops with Vidalia Onions

Nov 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very good. What I really love about this recipe is that it cost me only $10 for a portion for 4! Most of the ingredients I usually keep in my kitchen. The sauce is not thick at all and does not thicken so the rice is very important to soak up all that flavor. I expected a thicker, more gravy-like sauce and had chosen a different side than ric...

Addicting. It's that great sweet/salty crunch. Next time I might add nuts. I also liked that I always have these ingredients in my kitchen, so it's quick and easy anytime. I will make this for get-togethers just to have on the table.""

What a hit! I substituted good quality thickly-shredded parmesan cheese and really prefer it this way. My boyfriend doesn't like veggies but loves this recipe! I'm a beginner when it comes to cooking but had no problem with this. I used a cheese cloth to squeeze out the liquid. I think it's important to salt these as soon as they come out of...

These are great! I make a large batch each fall and put them in a decorative sealed container to keep out on the counter. People grab them when they see em' :) great job Giada. They're great for a little bite anytime, or with jelly. I have also used these in gift baskets because they keep well. I cut mine very small so they're easy to pop i...

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

Such powerful flavor! I was looking for a promising simple dip for a last minute lunch gathering. I was very doubtful but it turned out so great! Making it the night before and refrigerating it is crucial to the flavor, and is still good days later if you are short on time. Almost anything is delicious with this dip. I went with veggies and ...

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

This was a great lunch, and good leftovers. On the show, Giada didn't use all the dressing and left the remaining dressing on the side as an option. I should have done this. It was a bit tangy for me with the balsamic and dijon. I wonder if I had reduced the balsamic a little it might have cut that tanginess. It was actually my first time coo...

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

This is such a crowd pleaser. It is that rich garlicky crusty bread when you imagine the perfect garlic bread. It is also good without the sundried tomatoes and extra toppings. I have made it both ways and like to use just the basic ingredients for my usual garlic bread. I like to make the garlic butter/mayo mixture ahead of time and keep it ...

Wonderful. I am a new cook and was intimidated to try and tackle fried chicken (especially with a southern-cookin'-loving boyfriend). It is delicious. Even if it doesn't come out perfect, the flavor and crunch is great. I was so glad to have rave reviews from my southern guests who loooove fried chicken. This is a great recipe to have. I'll...

This is so delicious. After watching the show I craved this recipe and made it immediately. It is fabulous. Tangy, rich, lemony, and simple. The flavor is huge. Loved the creamy texture of the rice with the sauce. I made it as a side dish to test it out. It would be perfect for a lunch main dish with a salad. Glad Giada shared her family ...

This is the best recipe that I make. Hands down. I am pretty new to cooking and was not sure why I had such a desire to make this recipe. Maybe Ina just did such a good job showcasing it! Regardless, my point is that I am not an experienced cook nor do I have some huge craving to eat pot pie.....and this is my favorite thing to cook. It gets...
