Reviewed Lentil Soup

Dec 27, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I think this soup is very tasty, but I like others, did a little doctoring. I used a combo of vegetable and chicken broth, and added some of the chicken "Better Than Bouillon" paste. I also added red pepper flakes (to taste), and added a parmesan rind to cook the entire time with the soup. I have read that you should let this type of soup sit for...

Reviewed Sweet Potato (Yam) Casserole With Marshmallows

Nov 29, 2013 in on Food.com

This is good but it is so sweet it tastes like dessert. Everyone ate it at our Thanksgiving party but I think because it was the only sweet potato dish there. (Normally someone else brings a dish similar to this and that person wasn';t there.) Anyway - I will try a different dish next year."

Reviewed Not Your Mama's Green Bean Casserole

Nov 29, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This is the best green bean casserole I have ever had. I have made it 4 years in a row for Thanksgiving. A few things I add/change are: I add quite a bit of red chili flakes in with the salt and pepper and mushrooms. Also, I deglaze the pan with dry vermouth (or could use dry white wine) for a few minutes before adding the chicken broth in. Once...

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

These margaritas are absolutely delicious! I used about 1/2 the amount of sugar than the recipe called for because if you sugar/lime the rims of your glasses like Ree does (and please do this extra step, it makes it even that more delicious!) you will get a lot of sweetness from that. I also halved the entire recipe and it was perfect for 2 of u"

Reviewed Stuffed Peppadew Peppers

Dec 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

You often hear that simple food is the most delicious, and in this case that is the truth! Super quick to make and everyone will love them! Peppers have a zippy bite from being pickled in vinegar and the cheese mellows that bite out. Great flavor balance. Give em' a shot. They seem boring by reading the recipe but I assure you they are not!"

This is so easy & delicious! I added some chives from the garden since they were plentiful, and kept playing with the balance of vinegar & salt. Mmmm. We finished the whole thing! Once again, Aarti, you did it! "

Jul 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is one of the simplest, delicious and healthy recipes I've had in quite some time! Who knew about massaging your kale!? I will use this method for kale salad from now on. I followed exactly but maybe a bit less honey because I don't like overly sweet salads. I added a bit of kosher salt into the dressing as well, just to bring out the fla"

I'm really disappointed in this recipe. I used good quality cheeses, and followed the recipe exactly. I watched the show where she made this, too. And as others have stated it was completely curdled. It tasted good but it was ugly. The texture was awful and not at all creamy. I am happy I tried it, but will not make it again. I will go with "

Followed the exact recipe except I used dark chocolate chips. These things are so decadent with the perfect mix of soft layers and a crispy texture all in one. Trisha said her family calls these things "crack" because they are so addicting. She's right! Make them - you will not be disappointed! Everyone at the party asked for the recipe. It was "

I haven't made these yet, but they look really delicious and pretty healthy. Just FYI - I watched the show and Daniel Green used shitake mushrooms and said you can use any mushrooms. I will review again once I make these! ""

Feb 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This dip is luscious, creamy and mouth watering! The cayenne is a great ingredient as it gives the dip a kick right after you've swallowed! It was devoured in about an hour and there were only about 6 of us! To newer cooks out there - just be patient caramelizing your onions; it takes longer than Ina wrote into the recipe! I will definitely m...

These beans were the best baked beans I have ever had! I will keep tweaking with more spice, etc, and make them my own! :) I halved the recipe (the best that I could) b/c I was going to a small BBQ, and every last bean was eaten! Everyone loved it and requested the recipe! It will go into my recipe files for future uses. In fact I am making them...

This pasta sauce is super easy, and absolutely delicious! It has a very concentrated flavor, and whatever you do, DO NOT leave out the pancetta! It makes the dish!! I served this pasta with some sauteed green beens. AWESOME dinner. My boyfriend and I loved it and he said it's a keeper! Once again Giada - THANK YOU(!) you never disappoint!
