Why did you rate this recipe. You didn't make it! You made something entirely different!

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!!

Reviewed parmesan-crusted pork chops

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...

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...

Dec 11, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

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...

For what it's worth, I have Giada's Family Dinners cookbook which contains this recipe. The recipe in the book calls for 4 cups whole milk and 3 cups heavy cream. The same amount of liquid but I think the addition of the heavy cream will give the sauce a richer consistency.

If you haven't tried a recipe, don't rate a recipe. Is it really so hard to wait until AFTER you've made the dish to rate it?

This is an excellent summer drink. Tasty, refreshing and kid friendly. I used a combination of peach and mango (2 1/2 cups each). Delicious! It works equally as well as a spritzer by adding a little club soda to each glass.....or perhaps a shot of vodka for an adult beverage. Can't wait to try other fresh fruits."

Based on all the rave reviews I was expecting to love this recipe but alas, I found it to be average. Yes, it's tastey but nothing over the top. I marinated it for 24 hours as Alton suggested in the video. I also found that it took much longer to cook than the recipe stated. I had to finish it off in the oven. I actually much preferred the leftove"

So simple to make and yet so much flavor. Every time I make it, I think "Why don't I make this more often?" but the chicken HAS to cooked on the grill. I'm not a big fan of fennel but it's not overpowering....just a nice background flavor. I cut back a bit on the lemon juice, as I find Giada seems to go heavy on it in many of her recipes. I also p"

I was looking for a recipe for mock mashed potatoes when I stumbled upon this. I halved the recipe since I live alone. Like many others, I added parmesan cheese then took it one step further and added a few slices of crispy bacon. These two ingredients made the dish. That's the reason for the four star rating. As written, it's four stars. Adding t"

Very quick and easy to prepare. Big on flavor as well. My supermarket had packets of quesadilla seasoning so I used that instead of taco seasoning. Substituted mushrooms for the bell pepper. Sprinkled on some chopped cilantro and a drizzle of taco sauce before adding the second layer of cheese. I avoided the undercooked meat issue that many seem t"

This is a pretty good recipe. Comes out nice and moist although I prefer a slightly sweeter cornbread. Perhaps I'll add more sugar next time. I also decreased the amount of butter as others had suggested and added a cup of corn kernels and a half a can of green chilies. Worht making again."

I've never tried one of Sandra's recipes because the majority of them seem to have only mediocre ratings but when I got a nostaligic craving for salisbury steak, I compared several recipes here on the Foodnetwork and hers seemed like it would be the tastiest.

Very flavorful soup/stew although traditional cioppino has more seafood in it. Simple to throw together so it's great for beginning cooks. I added two extras. First, to kick up the spice factor, I finely chopped one poblano chili pepper and sauteed it with the other veggies. Then just before placing the lid on to simmer for 10 minutes, I added abo"

The pesto vinaigrette is fantastic. It's one of my standby salad dressings. I prefer using my own homemade pesto.
