Reviewed Citrus Cream Smoothie

Mar 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This smoothie was DELICIOUS! I made a single serving because it was just me who wanted to try it. Used a single-serve cup of greek yogurt and used agave nectar instead of the simple syrup. Also used fresh squeezed orange juice. It really DOES taste like a creamsicle :) Next time I'll try adding some vanilla protein powder to make it a meal!""

This may be a "30 Minute Meal" for an experienced chef like Racael who can prep quickly (or during commercial breaks etc.), but it took me closer to an hour (55 minutes to be exact). I halved the recipe because there are only 2 of us, but I kept the amount of canned tomatoes the same, which I believe helped tremendously with the issue that peopl...

These were great! I used ground turkey instead of chicken. They were very flavorful. I halved the recipe, so my burgers were VERY moist...next time I will add a little less mayo to the meat so the burgers will actually stay together. Still amazing :)""

This recipe is so easy and tasty! I use double the mushrooms because I LOVE mushrooms, and it's so delicious! Make sure to rinse the quinoa really well...it makes all the difference :)""

SUCH a great variation on plain mashed potatoes! The kale adds beautiful color and lots of vitamins and minerals. I usually can't stand kale, but I couldn't get enough Mash BOO-tatoes :)""

Delicious and easy to make! I don't have a food processor, but I do have a Magic Bullet, so I had to blend in 3 batches, but it still turned out great! It's a great dip for veggies and pita chips""

This recipe was very tasty, I just added a little too much hot sauce to the shrimp :/ The rice by itself is wonderful!!!""

Reviewed Cheese Tortellini in Light Broth

Oct 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a great light soup for a first course or a lighter meal! I literally threw it together in 5 minutes, so it's great when you're pressed for time. The only thing I changed was that I added a pinch of fresh chopped thyme. I didn't find it bland at all...simple maybe but not bland. I love the way the Parmesan cheese melts when you sprinkle it...

This recipe was SO quick and easy!!! I didn't have a grill, so I just seared the lamb, and it turned out DELICIOUS :) The sauce was perfect and not too strong of a balsamic flavor for me, but I did use a sweeter balsamic vinegar that had been infused with figs, so that may have helped. This is definitely one of my favorite lamb recipes""
