Really good! I think my husband will even eat this and he hates eggplant. This was super hearty. Yummy."

We really enjoyed this at my house actually. It was something completely different. I'm glad we tried it. Justin is great."

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

Yummy. I had part skim ricotta on hand so I used that but I think they would be creamier with the regular full-fat stuff. Also, my grocery store didn't have pancetta available so I got thick cut prosciutto and diced it. It didn't crisp las much as pancetta would have but the salty element was there. I can't wait to make this again. They are ...

Aug 20, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have made this several times and everyone has enjoyed it. Not one unhappy diner. I have changed the pasta a couple times, used different nuts, added more cheese, used a variety of greens. This us such an easy dish to play with the ingredients and flavors. Have fun with this one everyone. ""

Reviewed Eggplant Gratin

Aug 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This gratin was so satisfying. I prepared it in one 9X9 casserole dish instead of making two separate ones and it turned out great! Ina wasn't joking around when she said the eggplant splattered the oil. Dang! I definitely recommend this dish but PLEASE when frying the eggplant wear sleeves! My battle wounds were worth the finish product for s"

Super flaky and delicious! Such a great little bit-size morsel. Crisp on the outside with a sweet chewy little bit in the middle. Just the right amount of sweet. I could have eaten the whole platter! "

Reviewed Grilled Eggplant and Fresh Mozzarella on Ciabatta with Roasted Red Peppers, Garlic Mayonnaise, Fresh Basil and Arugula

Aug 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This sandwich was very satisfying. Tons of flavors however the garlic was the most present. I'd cut down to 2 cloves, 1 if you don't like a lot. I love garlic and it was strong for me. I didn't have fresh basil so I put dry in the mayo after I smushed it my palm to release the oils (thanks Ina). It worked just fine. I would suggest to put ci"

Reviewed White Bean and Roasted Eggplant Hummus

Aug 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very tasty. Good texture and layer of flavor. There is a nice zip from the lemon and a nice smokey flavor from the eggplant. Just be sure to season well. It makes a boatload though. Be prepared to eat hummus for days or give some to your neighbor (that's what I did)."

Reviewed Pork Wellington

Jul 31, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The pork was super tender and juicy. It turned out great but I felt it was missing an element of flavor. I haven't put my finger on what was missing but when I do I will post again. Also, be sure to make this for a group. I made it for two and had leftovers. It does not reheat well at all. It gets tough and dry. "

Jul 31, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The chicken was great. The lemon flavor was in every bite. On the show Ina said the roasted lemons can be eaten as well. I tried them and loved them! So good. This will be a definite go to weeknight meal. "

Reviewed Capellini with Tomatoes and Basil

Jul 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So light and tasty. I'd half the tomatoes next time so they would hopefully mix better with the pasta. They went straight to the bottom of the bowl. Yummy, I can't wait for leftovers tomorrow!"

Jul 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was so good and simple to make. I have never made a frittata before and I have no idea why! It was so easy and yielded such a delicious brunch. I am not a fan of scallions but wanted to add some color. I chopped asparagus in small pieces and used that instead. Also, after I plated my meal I shredded a little parmigiano reggiano on top (y"

Jul 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Super yummy lunch. This was my first experience with smoked salmon. I'm hooked! Great flavor combos. I was nuts about that lemon dill mayo. I have used that element with other dishes of my own. I made one half of my sandwich on toasted bread and the other non-toasted. I think the flavors of the whole grain bread were more present after toas"

Reviewed Pecorino and Bean Salad

Jul 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a wonderful side dish full of fresh flavors that all married well together. The creaminess of the cannellini beans and the bit of crunch from the edamame was a great contrast. I also enjoyed the the freshness of the herbs. My favorite was the yummy salty chucks of pecorino. I added some grated pecorino also so that salty touch was in"
