Reviewed Cauliflower and Bacon Gratin
"This is a fantastic dish. Please do not use bread crumbs from the grocery store. Take bread, remove the crusts, and process in your food processor...will need two cups of fresh bread crumbs. I also use 1-1/2 lbs of cauliflower florets that I weigh on my scale (not a one lb. head of cauliflower and increase the cream to 1 cup. Other ingredients"
Reviewed Easy Rice Bake Casserole
"This recipe is wonderful!! I think perhaps the problem with those who thought it was too dry was the amount of rice they used. The recipe calls for 4 cups of COOKED rice. I use the frozen Green Giant brand for ease of preparation. "
Reviewed Buttered Noodles with Chives
"Very tasty made just as written. ""
Reviewed Chicken Stew
"The flavors from this dish are absolutely marvelous. I used one tablespoon of fresh thyme instead of the dried. I also used pre-cooked chicken tenders (9 pcs) and added them at the end. Very very good."
Reviewed Beef and Butternut Squash Stew
"I have tried this recipe twice now. It is very, very good. However, the stew meat that I buy takes much longer than 1 hour to tenderize. It needs 2-1/2 to 3 hours. The next time, I will cook the squash in water when the meat becomes tender and add it that way. Otherwise, the squash cooks away. "
Reviewed Spicy Bean Soup
"I made this for the first time yesterday. It makes a ton, let me tell you. I've given it 3 stars because although I did not think the flavor was outstanding it was not bad, either. I usually absolutely love anything Giada makes. In all fairness, I am going to make this again after I buy fresh herbs. I have found that when a recipe is consistently given 5 stars by most raters and a few raters think the recipe is bland it is usually related to using old herbs. I suspect that is the case for me. Make this recipe when you need to feed a ton of people. I used my 10 quart soup pot and it filled it almost to the brim. Full of healthy nutritious stuff.
