Reviewed Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

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

YUM! Very very good! Was never a big scalloped potato fan-I am now! Used bacon, sharp cheddar cheese and based on other reviews-only 1 1/2 cups of 1/2 and 1/2. Did not use the swiss chard-the best part was all of the crispy crunchy stuff on top. "

Jan 17, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Hmmmm....not one of my favorites....first of all if you don't have chicken cutlets-they are very difficult to roll. Cutlets are a must. Overall was ok-but very salty. Too much sprinkling of salt before they are rolled, after they are rolled, the marsala and the proscuitto-to much-other than that-were good. Used fresh spinach. Took alot longer t"

Wow-never made anything like this before-sauteed the chicken mixture the day before. Did not add the chipolte's-added black beans instead. Had trouble with softening the corn taco's-they did not soften at all-so just put the sauce down in the pan-stuffed them and put them sideways with sauce and cheese over them and baked. Came out absolutely d"

Excellant!! Soaked the chicken in buttermilk and hot sauce for 24 hours-added cayenne to the flour mix-fried it up-was so juicy, crunchy and delicious! The hot sauce does tend to get lost-even though using it twice-but still tasted great!"

Very hearty! First fried up 2 lbs of bulk Italian sausage-took out with a slotted spoon and then fried the potatoes, onions and garlic in the sausage oil. Then added everything to a big pot- also added in some white Navy beans. Love the sausage flavor-added Pecorino Romano cheese, toasted up some Rosemary bread-great dinner for a cold Winter da"

This was absolutely delicious! Used Pollock-did not skimp on the proscuitt-the vegetables were wonderful, could not believe the flavor from the rosemary butter-that made the entire dish! "

Dec 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very good! Made these for Christmas-used hot turkey sausage instead of ground. Doubled everything-made the ricotta mixture and my sauce the day before. Then Christmas morning -stuffed them, fried the pancetta up-let that sit in the sauce awhile. Baked them 1 hour before serving-everyone loved them! Have not yet made a recipe of Giada's that w"

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very tasty! Used boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of thighs-marinated them overnight with the dry ingredients. Fried them up the next day-kept them whole and did not put in the oven. Served them on a long sandwich roll with the lettuce, tomato and ranch bleu cheese dressing-delicious! The kids loved them!"

Reviewed Crostini with Sun-Dried Tomato Jam

Dec 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! Took alot longer than the recipe indicated to reduce down-more like 2 hours. Not sure why it took so long-but was patient and it came out great! Also took another reviewers advice and brushed the baguette slices with the olive oil from the sun dried tomatoes...perfection! "

Dec 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

OMG! Delicious!! The recipe looked a little hard at first-read it through a few times-read everyone's reviews. Definitely use the Savoiardi lady fingers-dip them quick. Used Amaretto instead of marsala-it was so good-I was asked to make this for a wedding!!!!!"

Dec 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were absolutely delicious! Made them for Christmas day appetizers-these were devoured within a 1/2 hour! Made the mixture the day before-then rolled and fried them Christmas day. Probably would cut the dip ingredients in 1/2-made alot. Was afraid they would not hold together-added just a little bit more hot sauce-perfect! Already asked "

Nov 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was absolutely delicious!! Used bacon instead of pancetta. Put it together the day before-let it marinate for over 24 hours-be sure to rub in the garlic mixture inbetween the 2 loins. The only problem was it took much more than 1 hour to cook-more like over 2 hours-but it was worth the wait! Baked potato, broccoli rabe-great dinner!"
