We thought these were just okay - rather bland. Perhaps more lemon and oregano would have suited our taste. If I made them again I may try some dill or mint."

We thought these were pretty tasty, but bland. Perhaps more lemon and oregano would have been good. Next time I may try some dill or mint."

Loved this easy fast soup - creamy tasting, but does not have any cream or white potato. I love fennel and perhaps would have like a bit more of the anise flavor. Next time I might add some tarragon."

Way too sweet in my husband's and my opinion. The salty/sweet sauce was promising. Perhaps if the plantain had not been so ripe (sweet) it might have been better. "

Simply wonderful. Can't beat this for an easy extremely flavorful artichoke side. The anchovies are a must, but is good with or without the thyme."

Beautiful healthy salad, but we thought the vinaigrette was way too tart. I added a little honey and creamy dijon to make it more flavorful. It was okay with the parsley, but better with some cilantro and capers. Also, I soaked the wheat berries overnight and they only had to cook 15 minutes the next day for a soft, but still chewy texture- an "

My husband and I thought this was exceptional. I made the recipe as written - except used 1 lb. swiss chard, which is one big bunch and I sauteed stems with the onions and garlic. My bread crumbs were homemade whole wheat, but I imagine any dry plain crumbs would do. The result was a lovely savory crisp crusted tart with a dense filling which w"

Jul 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The results of my attempt was a tasty, but thick and too sweet vinaigrette. I think the success of this recipe may depend on how sweet (ripe) the figs are - mine were very ripe resulting in a cloying sweet vinaigrette. I would suggest tasting the figs and reducing/adding honey to taste."

Needs way more than a teaspoon of rosemary to make this interesting. Also, the directions seem wrong in regard to which side to have up on the baking sheet. If you are looking for crispy try to have the underside of the fry pan showing on top of the baking sheet - which requires flipping - have a friend ready to help."

Followed recipe exactly. I thought the shallot too strong for the delicate flavors of the dish. I will definitely make this again, but will use scallions next and also add a little more fish sauce."

Cake part was very good - 1 hr. would have been too long - toothpick was clean by 50 and I wish I had checked it sooner. The pineapple part was quite dry and a bit tough although very tasty. I will saute briefly without turning the next time.""

Very tasty and will make it again when I have leftover chicken, but would not go to the trouble to cook chicken for it. "
