Reviewed curried chicken and rice soup

Feb 11, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this according to the recipe, no changes or substitutions, and I have to say it's the most delicious soup I have ever made. My husband hates cream soups and was a little suspicious of the creamy texture of the broth but once he realized there was no actual cream in the soup and that the soup really is healthy, he was willing to try it and then...

I made this according to the recipe and it was wonderful. So easy and it makes the house smell fantastic while it is baking. I would love to make it and give it to friends and family but it never makes it out of my house! My family just loves it."

This is in regular rotation in my house. It's easy and relatively quick although it tastes like a soup that took hours to prepare and cook. I substitute dried fennel seed for the grains of paradise and it is fantastic. "

I loved it and it drew raves from my family. Of course, I made a few changes that I will share. I substituted a roasted (under the broiler in my oven) red bell pepper and two roasted poblanos for the green pepper. I didn't add them as early as the recipe says to add the green pepper since they were already roasted. I used red chard because that's "

This is a winner. The next time I make it I will leave out the pepper. I don't know what I did wrong, but part of the fish had way too much pepper while other parts were fine. Much as I love pepper, I will leave it out the next time I make this. Otherwise, this is awesome!"

Reviewed Pappardelle With Corn

Jun 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this recipe exactly as it was written. I think it would have been delicious had it not been so overwhelmingly salty. The next time I make it I will eliminate the half teaspoon of salt called for when the pasta and cheese go in and I will cut the first teaspoon of salt in half. Otherwise it was quite tasty."

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

I am so happy to have found this recipe. It is easy to prepare but it makes me look like I'm a master chef. The vegetables take on the flavor of the herbs and white wine, but don't become soggy. I was concerned about the halibut being steamed because I so love it grilled, but it is wonderful prepared this way. It's a healthy but elegant dinner tha"

Reviewed Roasted Root Vegetable Irish Lamb Stew

Apr 1, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

It was a hit with my whole family. I followed the recipe almost exactly. The only changes I made, were I used boneless leg of lamb rather than the shoulder, and I cut the vegetables slightly smaller. It will be a St. Patrick's Day tradition from now on, but I will be making it more than once a year.""

Follow this recipe to the letter, and everyone will love it! Even my picky teen who curled her lip at the idea of eating currants! It's really delicious.""

If I could give this a higher rating I would. It is absolutely awesome! You can use whatever veggies are in your fridge. I used avocado, shaved carrots and cucumbers with my veg pealer, bell pepper strips, and tomatoes. It was delicious. I followed the advice of other commenters and used slightly less salt. I am so happy to have found a veggie sa...

Reviewed Endive Spears Stuffed with Herbed Goat Cheese

Nov 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is wonderful, with a few adjustments. The goat cheese I bought came in a 5 oz package, so I used 5 ounces rather than 4. I followed the advice of some of the commenters and cut back on the herbs. I used one tablespoon each of the fresh thyme, rosemary, parsley, and chives, and I used about 4 tablespoons of heavy cream to get it to the consis...

Sep 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I can't believe this doesn't have one hundred plus reviews. I stumbled upon this recipe while searching for "balsamic reduction", and wow, am I glad I did. I followed the recipe exactly and served it with grilled steak, and grilled naan, and it was one of the best meals I have ever made. Just awesome! I served it with a medium priced shiraz, and ...

Aug 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is the first time that I have been tempted to try ground turkey-anything. I followed the recipe as it was posted, but I did follow the advice of some of the earlier commenters, and I used a half of a teaspoon less salt. I found it to be delicious, but I wish I had used even less salt. The salty taste is the first thing that hits your palate....
