Reviewed Company Pot Roast

Jan 12, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this for dinner tonight and it turned out beautifully! This is by far the best pot roast I've ever made. Thanks to Ina! The meat was nice and tender and the sauce turned out rich and hearty. I didn't pur���e half the sauce as recommended. I preferred the rough veggies as they were. I used the butter and I'm glad I did. It's not a lot of butter...

Simply put--outstanding!! I was specifically looking for a nice, hearty soup for a family dinner and curry squash soup sounded really good. This recipe is delicious (I served it hot as no one in my family likes cold soups. It's high-end taste but so easy to make. I used all butternet squash. Next time I'm going to try store bought frozen as a"

These brownies are amazing. I read some of the reviews before making, I made them with all semi-sweet chocolate chips (instead of part bitter chocolate. They were great. They absolutely NEED to be refrigerated as they have SO much butter in them--they firm up nicely in the fridge but are hard to serve w/o being chilled first. Don't skip this s"

Jan 6, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this for a dinner party last night and it was a hit! I didn't follow the exact recipe, as I could not find the Chayote squash, so I omitted it; I didn't char the peppers, I simply diced and sauteed briefly; I omitted the serrano chili since for me they are too hot, I used 2 jalapenos instead; and I only used 4 cups of stock, not 5 due to p"

I made this recipe exactly as stated for friends, except I swapped out Canada Dry Ginger Ale for the Sparkling Water. It was delicious and disappeared quickly.

I'm making it again for a BBQ tomorrow and trying a different wine. Honestly, I think any nice bottle of wine will do--red, white or blush. Excellent, excellent, excellent....

Jan 6, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this recipe a couple of times this past year and it's super quick to prep, and turns out great every time. I don't have a spice grinder (I have one, it's for coffee), so I either use my mortar and pestle or I put the spices in a plastic baggie and roll a rolling pin over them to crush them. Delish, and definitely a keeper."

Jan 6, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Just made a double batch of this recipe for dinner tonight, exactly as directed. Everything turned out fine, and tasty. I loved the taste of the sauce. Like a previous reviewer, mine turned more red in color than the photo shown here. Of course that's due to the tomato paste. It's like a chicken stew but with a slightly spicier tomato-based s"

Jan 5, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just made this recipe today, exactly as described with no changes/substitutions, and I loved it. Tip 1: To make things easy, cut up the veggies in batches as you go along. While one batch of veggies is cooking for 5 minutes, cut up the next ones, and so on. Tip 2: Make sure you season with salt as directed. I seasoned the eggplant liberall"

I made these for Thanksgiving dinner tonight and they were delicious! I made them exactly as directed, except I put them on a wire rack and then on a cookie sheet. That allowed the bacon fat to drip off on to the cookie sheet while the bacon crisped up nicely. I reserved some of the butter/brown sugar mixture to brush on after I pulled the bund"

Reviewed Sixteen-Spice-Rubbed Chicken Breast with Black Pepper Vinegar Sauce and Green Onion Slaw

Jun 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is the 1st recipe of Bobby Flay's that I've given anything less than 5 stars to. I'm basing my review of the spice rub, as I did not make the vinegar/black pepper dressing. The mix of spices was bland for me, but most of all the allspice overwhelmed the dish. I have an old spice rub recipe of Bobby's I much prefer and thankfully I printed "

May 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this dish for Mother's Day today and it was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, with one exception. I added a can of drained and rinsed chick peas. I thought the whole dish was very tasty. From past experience with thick chops or steaks, it's important to take the meat out of the fridge and let it warm slightly at room temperatur"

Reviewed Roasted Pork Loin with Cider and Chunky Applesauce

Apr 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this yesterday for our Easter dinner, without making a trial run first. It was delicious! Here's what I would be watchful of: 1) With all that apple cider in the roasting pan my onions never caramelized, but rather bathed in the juice which never absorbed or evaporated. So you might not need all of it. 2) I did not add all of the liqu...

Loved it! Just made it tonight, first time ever cooking Kale. Don't change a thing. The chicken stock adds a nice flavor, and the red wine vinegar has a great finish. I will definitely make this over and over and over again. Start to finish, including rinsing and drying the kale = less than 10 minutes. ""

This is a delicious recipe, don't skimp on the Dijon Whipped Cream, it really makes the dish.

I set the timer for 25 minutes like one of the reviewers suggested. My salmon was at room temp before I put it in the over and it cooked medium well, which is how I like it.

I must say, however, that even though...

I made 2 separate salmon recipes tonight, this being one of them. It is SUPER easy, VERY tasty, and PRETTY on the plate. It's one of those dinners that looks like you put a lot of work in it but didn't.

Note--I cooked the salmon on a separate cookie sheet so the water/oils wouldn't mess up the puff pastry. Good thing I did.
