Reviewed light italian dressing

Aug 1, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I was surprised at how good this was. Followed the suggestion of another reviewer and threw everything, including the whole tomato, into the Cuisinart (mini). Started with 1/2 the Dijon and used stevia instead of sugar. Ended up doubling the herbs as also suggested. A real winner for everyday.

This was outstanding. Don't understand why others have had trouble with the "turkey," but I'm guessing they're using breast, not the typical ground. Turkey breast can be utterly dry and tasteless. And don't overcook it. I've served this countless times and had rave reviews...especially don't ignore the basil, mint, LIME, chilies, fish sauce..."

I've got to go along with the crowd on this one! Absolutely the recipe to go to. Rarely change anything, but nothing suffers when I do...and it's fun to experiment.

The best! I've done about every variation...roasting the garlic, sauteeing the stuff; even grilling it in foil on the BBQ. This is hands down the best--and so easy. Just subtle enough (depending on how many cloves you use (I do one fat clove per potato). I love them crushed/mashed...not whipped to meringue. My 8 guests raved and begged for t...

Reviewed Tilapia with Escarole and Lemon-Pepper Oil

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

Easy recipe, but rather tasteless. I followed the recipe, adding only a bit more garlic (because we love garlic!). The potatoes and escarole tasted like each other and the mild Tilapia was a redundant flavor as well. I think if I made this again, I'd prepare the vegetables with even more garlic and without the fish, broil or grill salmon or co...
