Reviewed Enchilada Lasagna

Aug 12, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is my favorite way to eat enchiladas because I like adding extra meat and cheese and easier to really pack on the extra ingredients this way instead of trying to roll them all up. It's also easier to dish out and eat, in my opinion. I have to admit, though, I don't use Alton's sauce recipe. My husband and I tried it and agreed we like green t"

Making this for the second time. It's so delicious and easy to make. The first time around, I put in the whole 1/4 cup of oil into the dressing and it was awful because I couldn't taste anything else. Made it a second time and only put a spoonful or so in and it tasted much better. I probably don't need to put any oil in it at all, come to think "

These were pretty good but next time I'm not putting any coffee in it at all. I only used 2 tablespoons instead of 3 and they still made the brownies a little too bitter for the tastes of my husband and me. That's the only reason i knocked off a star.

The taste is great but the instructions were confusing for me when it came time to layer. I did sauce, noodles, cheese mixture, sauce, mozzarella. Then it said to repeat layers ending with sauce and I realized that repeating this way would not work because I'd have not enough sauce or too much cheese left, and not enough or too many noodles. So I "

My husband thought this was bland but I think his taste buds are off because to me, this had a lot of flavor, especially considering how simple it is. I used all fresh herbs so they were really potent. Couldn't find nicoise olives so I subbed kalamata and those along with the goat cheese also carry pretty strong flavors so I just don't see how thi"

For whatever reason, I knew about baking meatballs but it never dawned on me to try it - so much easier than cooking in a pan and healthier. These were delicious. They had just the right amount of spice and I liked the crunch that the breadcrumbs left. My husband and I didn't want to shop for ingredients so we only used 1 lb of beef and subbed the"

Dec 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

It tastes like the Moroccan couscous from the FN cookbook - tasty and sweet. I think the raisins and apricots mostly account for this. I followed other reviewers and added a tsp each of cinnamon and coriander, and a tsp of red pepper flakes instead of chilis, though I should have used more as only a couple of bites had heat. I also halved the reci"

Aug 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I always wonder if I did something wrong when a recipe comes out to be unremarkable. I followed the recipe to the letter and it just came out tasting like warm tomatoes and dough. For one thing, 1.75 lbs of tomatoes was too much for me - I ended up having a lot of tomato chunks leftover and I think they drowned out the spices and other vegetables."

Followed the recipe exactly and it was pretty good. Like others, I couldn't get my sauce to thicken to the consistency I wanted. I sprinkled a little flour over it to make it thicker and that worked just fine. Also, I thought the mushrooms and peas were delicious and felt there wasn't enough. Next time I'll double it. The chicken was alright but t"

The first time I made this was because I wanted some yummy chicken to put in my mac and cheese. My husband and I finished the leftover chicken and now I find myself craving it. It's delicious and tastes like a rotisserie chicken - but MUCH cheaper!

Yummm! I never really liked pot roast growing up because when I've had it, the meat was too stringy and chewy and the vegetables always seemed mushy and too savory.

The first thing my husband said was "It's so soft!" This roast was so moist and tender and my vegetables turned out surprisingly sweet and pleasant. I served this with...

Yummy and comforting. I replaced the small whole onions with mushrooms and used store-bought pastry puff. I lined my bowls with the dough as well as laying it on top because I love the extra crunch. The recipe makes a lot, too; I halved it, made 3 pies, and still had leftover filling

It has a long prep time so it's not something...

Super yummy. This was my first time mashing potatoes and they came out nice and smooth and creamy.

The only changes I made were using red potatoes instead of russet, and Panko instead of plain bread crumbs. The Panko and cheese didn't brown ...

This was pretty good. I'm not really sure what I'm doing when I fry foods so I'm sure it could have been better but for my novice efforts, I think it came out well - the crust was nice and crispy. I left the steaks in the pan for 3 minutes per side instead of 2, because 2 minutes left them a little too far on the rare side. I chose this recipe be...

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

This recipe ended up being way too watery. I added water after putting the meat and pasta together and maybe I should have added it after the pasta but before the meat since it bulks up the pot considerably. Regardless, I ended up spooning about 2 cups of liquid out, and then adding a can of crushed tomatoes (since that's what I had on hand) to t...
