Reviewed Crispy Kale "Chips"

Aug 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

First attempt at kale chips and it worked great, thank you for this recipe! I misread the recipe and had it in the oven for 20 minutes at 225, but they still turned out crispy so maybe that'll work fine next time too. Do take the time to massage the leaves with olive oil--it makes for another dish to wash but it helped to use a big mixing bowl. I "

Reviewed Miso-Ginger Marinated Grilled Salmon

Aug 1, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Simple and tasty! I didn't use the miso, only because my family doesn't keep it stocked, so I did have to omit it. It still tasted great though. I tasted the marinade and had to add a little bit more sweet for my taste, then put a squeeze of lemon right after I took it out of the oven. Thanks to the reviewers who gave tips on baking/broiling, "

Reviewed Texas-Style Potato Salad with Mustard and Pickled Red Onions

This review is actually for the pickled red onions; I actually haven't tried the potato salad, sorry! The pickled onions are great though--I didn't realize they're so easy to make! I've served these with Food Network's slow cooker pork tacos and on fish tacos. Also, my family doesn't usually have red wine vinegar on hand since we use a lot of rice"

My family loves this... Yummy, but I wish I could say it was as simple as it looks in the recipe. First, I agree with the other reviewers who commented that microwaving the peppers is not the way to go. I usually toast them in a dry pan until they're pliable, or you could soak them in hot water. Second, this yields a lot of oil/fat so i found it "

Reviewed Roasted Halibut with Pea and Mint Salad

Jun 30, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

For me, the results were just ok; it didn't suit my palate, I think, because it tasted very mild to me. I doubled the garlic, but it was still a bit bland. I could see how those who don't normally eat fish would like it. The peas complimented the fish, because with all the lemon it needed some sweetness. But, it the mint added an odd texture beca"

Reviewed The Ultimate Beef Stew

Feb 6, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just made this today after going through several beef stew and beef burgundy recipes, and it turned really well! I didn't have any oranges, so I can't comment on that, but it turned out well even without the orange peel. I cut the recipe in half and the other change I made was to replace half of the beef broth with water because my mom has to...

Reviewed Sweet Cinnamon Flavored Oatmeal Drink ("Horchata"

Jan 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I saw this on Marcela's show and really wanted to try it, since I love horchata and this looked like such an easy recipe. After trying it out, it was pretty tasty, but not quite as good as horchata. I found that it helped to add more sugar, some vanilla, and a few tablespoons of milk to thicken it. I would make it again, since it's tasty and relatively...

Reviewed Indian Rice Pudding

Jan 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this twice so far, and I'm sure I'll make it again. I've always loved the rice pudding served at Indian restaurants, and I was surprised to find that the recipe was so simple. I made it as is, with vanilla. I did add dried cranberries, which helped balance the sweetness. It did take me significantly longer (maybe 40-60 minutes more? to reduce...
