Reviewed Farro Salad with Tomatoes and Herbs

Aug 21, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Which came first? Giada's recipe or the EXACT SAME recipe on Nature's Earthly Choice farro package? Hmmm. Regardless, this was delicious. I used Roma tomatoes and fresh parsley and chives from my garden. I served it with roasted chicken. Yum! I'll be making this one again."

Reviewed Minestrone Soup with Pasta, Beans and Vegetables

Even though this soup was satisfying, it wasn't great. The flavor lacked depth. Perhaps using beef stock would've helped, or not. I used fire-roasted tomatoes and added garlic, but they weren't enough. I'll be trying a different minestrone recipe next time."
