Reviewed Warm Vegetable Salad

Oct 26, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This is very good! I had to leave out the red peppers only because I love them but they do not love me back. Otherwise, I made the recipe as stated. I should have cooked the green beans a minute or 2 longer but all in all the dish was fabulous! I served this with Giada's Chicken Scallopini with saffron cream sauce. Great meal with friends!!!

Oct 26, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This is delicious! I followed the directions exactly and it had that beautiful gold color from the saffron. The sauce was so velvety and creamy. I loved the shallots instead of onions - gave the dish real flavor. I served it with Giada's Warm Vegetable Salad and made a great meal with a great friend. My husband said it was outstanding and my...

These are good. Be sure to buy good chocolate. However, they are messy. Rolling the chocolate in your hands makes a major mess! I would recommend rolling all your chocolate balls first. Then start wrapping the sugar cookie dough around them. Only roll out what will fit on your cookie sheet. As for taste, these are very good. If you like su"

I would actually give this recipe 2 1/2 stars if I could. I followed the directions EXACTLY. I squeezed my limes into a bowl and measured out the 3Tbls of Lime juice. With that being said, the dough came out a little sticky. You have to use a lot of flour to roll it out. Also, you can't make big sweeping moves with the rolling pin. Just roll"

I found this recipe on Giada's website and decided to make it for my mom last night. Today, I caught a rerun of Everyday Italian with Giada and guess what she was making??? First, glad mine looked just like hers. Second, OMG, this is so good!!!! I used a little less mustard because I am not a huge mustard fan and I think it worked well. It ha"

YUM! Easy to make and very yummy. Now, I did goof and buy Italian parsley at the grocery store instead of fresh basil. It would be better with the basil and I'll make it that way next time. It was light and creamy and just a fresh pasta dish. Great for summer! Thanks again Giada for another wonderful Italian recipe (from one Italian lady to "

Super easy and light. I did roll it out before pressing it into the pie tin. Just easier for me. Yummy, light flaky crust. Made in less than 5 minutes! I used it for quiche. Worked great."

Jul 8, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

For taste alone, I would give it a 5. however, I did not use 1lb of Bacon. I'd like my heart to keep beating for several more decades. I used the same amount of cheese, spinach, eggs and cream. This did not fit into a 9" pie pan. I put a sheet pan under the pie tin in the oven. Good thing I did, it leaked out everywhere b/c it was too full."

HELP! I made the batter exactly as stated, poured in 1/4 cup, it cooked and the edges crisps up but I can't for the life of me flip them. I used a non-stick spatula. I even tried to spray some cooking spray and they just crumpled. Any suggestions as to what I did wrong? I cooked them and dipped a piece in the raspberry jam. They tasted fine,"

May 12, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was pretty good. I served this on sour dough bread with Giada's berry lemonade recipe. It was yummy and my guests all loved it. I did not have any pancetta so I used regular bacon. I liked the lemon zest and I LOVE gorgonzola cheese!!! I will make this again! And I can't wait to taste it with the pancetta vs the regular bacon."

I made this with a mix or blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries. All I can say is YUM! I used more berries than called for so I just thinned it out with a little more water. It was still a little thick but it made it very tasty! I served it at a party and the guests loved it! I will make this again as summer gets closer! I'll use bette"

This was awesome!!!! I've had risotto many times but have never made it myself. Also, I have never roasted veggies or knowing ate parsnips or kale. So this dish was a major adventure for me. I am in an online cooking school so I took my lesson on how to roast veggies. I made this exactly as listed except for the shallot b/c I forgot to buy on"

This was yummy. The only thing is I can't eat peppers of any kind. I love them, they hate me! Also, I cut the recipe in 1/2 because it was just me and my hubby.

Otherwise, I followed the directions and all the spices. I've never had ground turkey before and wanted to try it and this recipe looked good. The turkey was moist...

This was AWESOME!!!! I made it for a jewelry party and we ran out and I didn't have another bottle of wine to make another batch! Everyone raved about it and asked for the recipe. I sent them straight to Guy's page!!! It was a good blend of sweet and tart. I wouldn't change a thing except to make more next time!!!!
