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

Made this last night. Was great! I agree with other reviews, this is not really a soup, but more like a chili. Made it nearly exactly like the recipe with the following changes: I used two large onions when I browned the ground beef and added plenty of garlic (personal taste). I cooked it in the crockpot and the last hour, I turned it up to high ...

I made this recipe lat night for Christmas Eve dinner for my family. I did make a few changes, based on some previous reviews and it was great! It's definitely going in my "Keeper" book!. I used skimmed milk, only used a pinch of salt in the sauce, added about a clove of fresh grated garlic and instead of bread crumbs, I used crushed 'butter and ...

I made this for a small family Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it. However, I did omit the potato chips on top and used crushed seasoned crouton with a little butter drizzled on top during the last few minutes of cooking and I used cram of mushroom soup, as suggested my some other reviewers. I will be making these again, and again, and aga...

I have made many of the Neely's recipes and loved most of them. However, I don't think I will make this one again without making some changes. The radicchio was far too bitter and overwhelmed the dish and I used a very small head of it (it was also far too expensive at nearly $5.00 a lb. here in the L.A. area). The dressing is quite good, though. "

My husband loves kielbasa, so I'm always looking for new ways to make it. I was skeptical that I would like it, though, I'm not a HUGE sauerkraut fan (like a little on Ruben sandwiches and an occasional hot dog and I really don't like mustard. I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised by this meal. Everyone in the family loved it, including m"

I made this for a Mother's Day supper and it turned out wonderfully. Everyone was asking for the recipe. I have to admit, I was almost a bit embarrassed, because it was simple and easy to make. I took one reviewers suggestion and added a bit of cinnamon as well as nutmeg. Those spices gave it a nice kick and this dish could really be great during "

I made this last night along with Claire's Blue cheese and bacon stuffed chicken w/ grilled asparagus. Everything was fantastic~quick, easy and delicious! I didn't have any leeks, so I used shallots, it was great, but next time, I will definately use leeks. I can imagine how great it will bbe. I love Claire's recipes and would recommend them to a...

Made this last night with Tri Tip and Sandra's Barbecued Roasted Potatoes. It was great. Nice and Simple. It was the first time I had grilled asparagus. It's amazing how grilling it really brings out the sweetness. I did add a the juice of half a lemon. Also, we had hickory chips smoking on the grill. My husband and sons (11 and 16) LOVED it. I will...

Made these last night with grilled asparagus and marinated Tri Tip. These potatoes are a complete keeper. I did switch up the recipe a bit to suit my family's tastes, but not much. I used red potatoes. With the sauce, I used fresh chives instead of dried. I just prefer fresh and I had them on hand. I'll add pore bacon the next time. Did not add the...

I made this the other night. . . great! I love Claire's recipes. Simple, tasty and can be 'company' food without question. I added a little grated garlic to the compound butter. . . it was really nice.

WOW, I saw this recipe and knew I had to try it! I've never made egg rolls before (kinda scared of the process, I guess). I made theese for Super Bowl Sunday and they were the HIT of the party!! I went to the market, but the berries didn't really look nice and fresh, but I knew I had bananas at home. I essentially made bananas foster for the filling....

I made this for the third time last night. Wonderful, as always! I use the fire roasted tomatoes and add some restaurant pre-made salsa and garlic just before I build the lasagna. Serve with Spanish Rice and some cheesy refried beans. It is definitely a 'keeper' around here and a quick go-to recipe!

Made this the other night. The glaze was really good, but I did marinate the meat for an hour or so, before cooking it, so the meat really drew in the flavor. Next time, I'll try a better cut of meat, because the London Broil was a bit tough. This glaze would also be great on chicken! We had a Food Network night, I made this with Sandra Lee's fried...
