Reviewed Seared Mahi-Mahi with Mango Sauce and Fragrant Rice

Apr 10, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really enjoyed this recipe. The mango salsa was unique and really delicious. Adding cilantro and scallions to the rice was a great way to make rice feel special, with almost no extra effort. I used tilapia in place of the mahi-mahi because it was more easily available/affordable, and just cooked it for less time - it worked very well in this "

I made this recipe for a dinner party and was really happy with the results - the chicken was juicy, flavorful, and just all around delicious! However, I think the prep time on this recipe is off - I consider myself to be pretty experienced in the kitchen, and this definitely took more than 45 minutes start to finish (probably more like an hour o"

Reviewed Thai Red Curry Mac 'n' Cheese

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

I'm totally in love with this recipe. It's certainly an occasional indulgence sort of food, but definitely worth it from time to time. Despite adding an entire jar of curry paste, it's not super spicy - I think the huge amounts of dairy in the recipe balance out the spiciness, leaving just the fantastic Thai curry flavor. ""

Loved this recipe - based on reviews, I added a little extra garam masala and thought it was perfectly spiced. I thought the recipe had complex flavors that tasted like they took a long time to develop, despite a quick prep time - just the way I like it! This recipe is also nice because it is not at all spicy, so it's a perfect curry for those ...

This is an awesome recipe - the curry is super flavorful and I love the unique idea of using meatballs in it...fun and yummy. I didn't find the meat bland at all as some other reviewers stated - not sure how meat with loads of ginger and serrano chilis could be bland! I did use the fattier ground beef rather than lean, so that may have helped w...

Reviewed Jam Cake With Peanut Streusel

Aug 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Overall, this cake was delicious - moist and flavorful. I really like the peanut streusel...very unique, and easy to make as long as you have a food processor. I used some cherry jam that I was trying to use up, and it worked very well.

My only complaint with this recipe is that the pan size listed is definitely not correct. ...

My roommate made these sandwiches and they are SO good. A great twist on grilled cheese...I'm in love! The apples, cheese, and hoisin sauce went really well together."

Reviewed Moroccan Carrot Salad with Parsley and Roasted Lemon

Jul 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a really delicious recipe. I used a Meyer lemon since it's a bit less tart and has much thinner skin than a normal lemon. Also, after reading other comments about the lemon oil being sort of bitter, I used freshly squeezed lemon juice instead of the lemon oil to add extra acid at the end. This worked really well! I added some golden r"
