Reviewed Avocado and Spicy Greens with a Pistachio Oil Vinaigrette

Dec 29, 2013 on

I followed the recipe as close as I could and it was incredible! i did not have shallots so I grated 1/4 of a small onion and blended it into the dressing. The dressing was poured over top arugula and diced avocado. The pistachio vinaigrette was a huge hit and a wonderful surprise! This one is a keeper!!!

Reviewed Sweet Temptation Ribs: Tamarind-Glazed Spare Ribs

Apr 28, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

These were delicious and so easy to make. This recipe did not talk about about finishing off the ribs on the grill like the show told us to do. Although it was not necessary, I believe it really added a nice crust onto the ribs with that wonderful sauce. It was really easy to find the tamarind paste/sauce in the international aisle of my grocer"

I think it was the 1/2 cup of dry red wine that made this soup tas...

This recipe is the best ever! I have been making it for years ever since it originally aired on the Surreal Gourmet. I usually use a mango instead of papaya. I love the look of serving out of a brown paper bag; however, I do not always use the brown paper bag. I will often use a small oven safe dish and place the sauce over the fish. Bob Blum...

Oh My Goodness...this is heaven! I happened to have all the ingredients on hand, so after watching the show, I had to try this recipe out. This is absolutely fabulous. And of course I used yogurt. It was simple and quick as well. I am not a tumeric fan so that was omitted. Great to eat with a spoon or some tortilla chips. Aarti, you did it...
