Reviewed spicy chicken tenders with honey-mustard

May 28, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Not enough seasoning. Cook time listed isn't long enough. I've made recipes with the flour, eggwash, coating mixtures before. It's not rocket science, but something was wrong with this one. The coating fell off the chicken and had a skin-like texture. It was gross. I wasted money making this recipe. Usually like Giada's ideas but this one is...

I like a lot of Giada's recipes but this one is a dud. Not near enough seasoning (with the exception of the cayenne). I've made similar recipes before with the flour, egg, etc but there's something wrong with this recipe. It was way more trouble than it was worth.

This drink tasted great. I've made it a few times now trying it with various brands of liquor.

There was no mention in the recipe about "top shelf", but one could certainly use whatever liquor he desired. Like the rest of the reviewers, I found the drink to be tasty and just fine but I do try and keep my expectations at a reasonable level.

Made these last night after watching the show. Fantastic cupcakes. The frosting recipe is quite.. rich. But in this case you can alter the frosting ingredients if you wish. It's not that tough. But after tasting, we preferred the entire recipe just as it is."

Awesome light version of mac and cheese. I love cauliflower and peas, so this was a likeable combination for me. Besides slightly increasing the milk, the only other change I made was to eliminate the egg whites. Don't care for them and didn't see the need. And for anyone who doesn't like peas, leave them out for heaven's sakes. Not rocket sc"

Definitely tasty and easy to make. Made it last night. It was awesome when the pasta was still slightly warm, then took some for my lunch today. Coworkers commented on the nice appearance. What I enjoy about recipes like this is that you can alter it per your own preference. It's not like baking where measurements must be exact. Good job Gia"

This is a delicious cake. Another reviewer recommends baking longer, using more powdered sugar on the towel and using a non-textured towel. I think she's right. When I made this, the cake fell apart in three places when I unrolled it after cooling. It was stuck to the towel. Not a criticism, but I'd probably rate the Level as medium because...

This is the kind of recipe you make on a lazy weekend day. It's much work but SO worth it. It's delicious and the best recipe I've tried that includes both tomato sauce and bechamel. It's nice to taste something so wonderful as opposed to just a glob of tomato sauce over pasta. Leftovers are wonderful.""

Sep 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought it was delicious just as the recipe is written. Lemon and mint together give it a fresh punch that coats the small pasta nicely. Recipes like these are easily tweaked. You could always skip the mint if it isn't your thing. I served this with grilled chicken and garlic bread.""

Yummy dish. I did cut back on the butter for dietary reasons, and it was just fine. That's what's nice about recipes like this. You can slightly alter them to suit your needs, which is personal preference. That's why I rate the recipe higher.""

Not sure how anyone could say this salad was not what they expected. It's five ingredients, all easy-identifiable flavors. It's easy and yummy. And then to rate it one star not because of taste, but because of rosemary olive oil.. good grief. Some of you should get your own food show."
