Reviewed Quinoa, Roasted Eggplant and Apple Salad with Cumin Vinaigrette

Absolutely delicious. I substituted the cumin seeds for ground cumin just half of what the recipe called for. I put it on top of arugula instead of watercress! Perfect! Can't wait to make it again

Absolutely perfect summer pasta dish! I made it with perciatelli pasta & we did not have any left overs. Pair it with a nice white wine & its even better. Incredibly quick & easy. "

Absolutely delicious & super easy! Perfect week night meal. I didn't have paprika so I substituted it with cumin & cayenne pepper. It has more of a kick but if you like that it's the perfect combination of flavors! I also added carrots for more veggies. Will absolutely make it again"

I was so excited to try this combination for risotto but it left me a little disappointed, it was missing something. Also, 2 mins is a little too long in between pouring your broth/pumpkin so it wasn't al dente enough for my taste. So I would suggest 1 minute. I am going to try it again though because maybe I did something wrong. ""

Reviewed Pancetta and Turkey Meatloaf Sandwiches

Oct 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I make this all the time but without wrapping it in the pancetta. The pancetta is an unnecessary extra step. It tastes great without it. It take about 5 mins to prep so it's an excellent easy, quick week day meal. ""

Perfect until I unrolled it from the towel. I don't know what I did wrong, it broke apart & so I couldn't roll it back up. Although a DELICIOUS combo, the execution is not easy. ""
