Reviewed grilled chicken caesar wrap

Apr 7, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Everything about this recipe is great. I finally have a grilled chicken marinade that
I will use over and over again. Thank you Jeff! I grilled the chicken using my indoor grill pan. The dressing is tasty and I just kept munching on the croutons. I added garlic powder to the croutons for added flavor. Wow, a great, light meal.

Reviewed roast beef with gravy

Mar 17, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I liked the concept of cooking the beef in the foil packet. The beef came out tender, juicy and the flavor of vinegar was not overpowering. I thought the temperature of 450 degrees was way to high so I did cook at 350 and the
meat cooked just fine. The water does evaporate rather quickly and you do have to check it at least every 20 m...

My family gave me mixed reviews on the gnocchi. I thought the flavor of the gnocchi was very good. I don't think my potatoes were soft enough...they didn't mix into the dough totally. I might try again boiling the potatoes instead of baking them. I served with a blush vodka sauce.

Followed the recipe and thought the flavor was excellent. The corn flake crumbs are a nice change from regular bread crumbs. I have to admit I was actually picking the crumb topping and eating it alone as it had so much flavor. I used
thighs and drumsticks and they weren't dry at all. Thank you Gina and Pat for
another great...

The dish itself is very tasty. I had problems with the pancake batter and after
re-reading the recipe I think I know what I did wrong. Even without the crepes, the chicken and vegetables would go very good over rice. Will try this one again.

I saw Aaron making this cake and he called it chocolate pudding. It's more like

dark chocolate, you will love this cake. Very easy to make!

These brussel sprouts were so good. The lemon zest added a nice fresh taste

After watching this being made, there was no doubt that I would make this recipe. Unfortunately, my store was out of ground pork, so I did have to substitute ground beef. The barbeque sauce could be bottled...it's awesome!
While cleaning up, I was dipping mozzarella into the leftover sauce, which really
wasn't that much left over....
