Reviewed Broiled Zucchini and Potatoes with Parmesan Crust

Jul 28, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

This recipe is an immediate recipe box rotater - zucchini was soft but firm, retaining it's shape. I subbed onions for potatoes which were amazingly delicious. Romano - it's what I had fresh grated - crust sooo good."

Jul 28, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I was not going to let stinky, bad chicken thighs stop me from making this... especially since I'd already chopped up all the veggies and made the sauce...so Oyster Sauce Veggie side dish, it is! Very tasty and easy to make sauce - I will use it again. This dish would work well with other proteins - tofu, shrimp or pork."

What a fresh salad. Who would expect flat leaf parsley could add so much? I knew leftovers wouldn't hold up well, so we made two huge salads. Very filling. An excellent choice for a light, refreshing meal in the summer."

Apr 11, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love farro, kale, mushrooms, asparagus and hazelnuts, so this should have been an amazing dish! But it wasn't. It was bland, even with the crunch of the nuts and tons of extra seasonings. Add to that the cost of these ingredients... and I was very disappointed."

Feb 2, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

OK, this salsa was freeking fab-u-lous! I made salsa from scratch! Better than a lot of the stuff you get at restaurants. And so easy!! I made both the mild and the hot versions shown in this recipe, and they were equally delicious. The mild still had a little heat from the jalapeno - which I seeded and de-ribbed. The hot was smoky from the "

Feb 2, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

Simple to make, easier than I expected too. My recommendation is to add more sugar, maybe 1c instead of 3/4c, because every horchata I've had has been a tad sweeter. My second recommendation is to blend this longer than you think, because it stays gritty a while. Dip a spoon in to taste as you're blending to make sure it is smooth. Otherwise, "

I successfully used two cans of beans, drained and lightly rinsed, rather than dried as I have no luck with dried beans. I also used half a loaf of old Pugliese bread. Even with this 'saltier' bread, I needed to add a good couple of pinches of salt to our bowls. Loved the richness of the olive oil drizzle over top. This soup is very thick, but"

Jan 15, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Tasty, hardy soup. Freezes and reheats well, only needing a little extra water to smooth it out. I used less Italian sausage than called for and will consider subbing ground chicken or turkey if I make the recipe again. Makes 6-8 servings not 4."

Reviewed Flour's Famous Banana Bread

Dec 29, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

1hr 15min in the oven, and I still ended up with serious wet goop in the middle and overcooked edges. I've never, ever had problems making banana bread or muffins from other recipes. The part that was cooked enough to eat was dry and just not tasty enough. Disappointed."

Reviewed Turkey Meatballs on a Bed of Leeks

Dec 29, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

The flavor, and the shock that they're turkey, warrants a five star rating. This was my first time making meatballs from scratch - and they were some work! - but they turned out perfectly tender. Based on other reviews, I removed the leeks while cooking the first side of the meatballs, returning them when I flipped the balls, and used a whole 1c"

This needs 'something' to take it past an average, semi-bland side. Herbs, or a little sauteed crust on the veggies, or a little grated parmesan."

Nov 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Quick, simple preparation for fancy meal payoff.

I was a bit leery to tell you I used walleye, but I see practically every other reviewer also used a fish other than snapper...which shows the recipe is versatile enough for you to use on whatever is fresh at your market that day!"

Reviewed Fulton Fish Market Cioppino with Sourdough Croutons

Nov 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Those sourdough croutons blew my mind! I've had an unused tube of anchovy paste in my pantry for over a year, and all I can think about is that I've wasted a year of eating sourdough croutons!

The cioppino, my first time making this fancy dish, was surprisingly easy, for all the ingredients. I only used walleye and shrimp. All...

Nov 25, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I made a bourbon caramel sauce...from scratch! This recipe made me realize I can make a pretty serious dessert in very little time with no real work. Loved how the caramel turned into a shell on the vanilla ice cream and the crunchiness of the graham cracker crumbs against the softness of the pears."

Nov 25, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

A quick, filling soup that has a good depth of flavor. Loved all the fresh veggies and how the mashed canellini beans add the satisfying thickness and richness you'd only expect from a soup with cream. I added quartered pre-cooked meatballs to the leftovers, and this took the recipe to five stars for us."

Nov 25, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

My Granny Smith apple wedges cooked down to a chunky applesauce consistency, which was not expected... but also not a detractor from our enjoyment of the dish. The topping was more struesel and less crunchy than other crisps I have made.

I successfully halved the recipe. We ate it the first night, still warm from the oven, with...

Oooooh, yummy Chimichurri sauce - bright, fresh, zippy! I'll use that recipe over and over again! The outside crust of the grilled pork was amazing. To make the inside super amazing too, I drizzled a little of the reserved chim sauce on my cutting board and set slices in it as I cut up the meat before plating up family-style."
