Is it really so difficult to wait until AFTER you've made a recipe before rating it? Thanks for the worthless review AND rating!

Why don't you wait and rate the recipe until AFTER you've made it! Just saying.

Why are you rating a recipe you haven't even made? Absolutely clueless.

Jun 10, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I originally gave this a two star rating as I felt the freshly made burgers were nothing special. I made four burgers, cooked two and froze two of them for later use. The two I cooked........eh nothing special. Not impressed. I defrosted the other two burgers in the refrigerator overnight. The defrosted burgers were extremely wet in texture (as was...

Seriously??!! You couldn't wait a few more minutes until AFTER you tried the recipe before rating it???/ Absolutely ridiculous.

These burgers were okay but nothing special. I've had better turkey burgers. They were very moist though. Won't make them again.

This dish really didn't do it for me. I agree with others who said it was bland. I halved the recipe but used the full amount of spices and still felt it could have used more flavoring. I think from now on, if I'm in the mood for Indian cuisine, I'll go out to a restaurant.

You should also try waiting to rate a recipe until AFTER you've made it!

Easy yes, but didn't find anything special about this dish. Just average.

Your complaint is with the site administrators. Use the Contact Us link to air your gripes. Instead, you give a recipe a one star rating to whine about something else. Seriously? WOW

Apr 18, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious. I did add some tomato paste and beef demi-glace to add mor depth of flavor and threw in some frozen peas during the last 10 minutes of simmering. I'm not sure what Giada considers a serving but I halved the recipe. I'm on my fourth bowl now and still have about three more servings to go! Glad I didn't make a full batch!!

Apr 3, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

These were Okay.....nothing special. Just your basic breaded pork chops. I followed the advice of other reviewers and added some onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and dried oregano to the bread crumb mixture and still...........just an average breaded pork chop. Maybe I'll make again and then again, maybe I won't.

If you hate when people rate a recipe before trying it, then why are you guilty of the very same thing? Would it have been so hard for you to wait until AFTER you made the recipe before posting?

Feb 12, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Very tasty dish and extremely easy and quick to prepare. I found a mixed wild mushroom assortment at the grocery store and thought the different flavors really added to the dish. I added some sauteed pancetta for a little bacon flavor. Next time I may use turkey or chicken sausage. I thought the rigatoni was a little overpowering for the sauce. Next...

Reviewed Flattened Pan-Roasted Chicken

Dec 17, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

The rating is for the brine element of the recipe. This brine adds wonderful flavor to the chicken. Whenever I prepare a chicken dish, I use this brine prior to making the dish to give the meat an extra dimension of flavor. My only suggestion would be to brine the meat overnight as opposed to the one hour suggested in the recipe. Much more flavor...

This is the best shrimp cocktail I've ever eaten. I've made it several times now for holidays and parties and it get devoured every single time. I use Emeril's store bought seasoning mix instead of making it myself and add a little Old Bay to the mixture. For the cocktail sauce I use a half a cup of ketchup and a half a cup of chili sauce instead...
