Reviewed Skillet Rosemary Chicken

Nov 4, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This was only ok. The potatoes turned out well, the chicken was ok, but, I thought there was too much acid from the lemons and no other flavors to really balance it out. The mushrooms had no flavor except for the strong sour and acidic flavor. I even added an onion that should have added some sweetness but a lot more sweet and salt was needed to balance...

Aug 4, 2012 in on Food.com

This is a very good, basic recipe to get the idea of the soup and be able to make your own adjustments according to taste. If you followed it exactly you would never add the mushrooms and who knows what they mean by "another few minutes"? So, I would assume this recipe is meant to be adjusted and wing it. I just made this and it was excellent. I...

Reviewed Salmon Cakes with Creamy Ginger-Sesame Sauce

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

The salmon cakes are great, but skip the sauce. The salmon cakes are actually near perfect. If the cakes were too dry, chop the water chestnuts much more finely so they are evenly distributed and add moisture as well as consistent texture. Actually, finely chop all the ingredients more than you usually would. I used a high quality canned salmon...

Reviewed Curried Butternut Squash Soup

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

This is a great, easy recipe. I used a spicy curry powder that has jalapenos in it and it turned out just right for my tastes. It was a bit thinner than I anticipated. I used two 1 pound bags of frozen cubed squash, next time I will probably double that. I will also try leeks instead next time too just for my personal taste preferences. Reall...

Reviewed Pesto Potato and Green Bean Salad

Aug 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This pesto is good, but not exceptional. Putting in enough pine nuts and parmigiano would make it not as healthy as this version, but this is a very fresh, tasty pesto. Some tomatoes would be great in the salad, but I wonder if some fresh hot and/or sweet peppers in the pesto might help give another level of flavor to make up for the lack of pin...

I thought this recipe was excellent with some adjustments as I did not have, nor could I find, grains of paradise as many others have attested. I did use about 1/2 tspn of garam masala spices made by Frontier Natural Products Co-op. I still add the recommended spices, but also added a dash of ginger, a bit of freshly grated nutmeg and since I di"

Reviewed Watermelon with Balsamic and Feta

May 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made this as an appetizer for grilled steaks and vegetables and it was superb. Perhaps it is an acquired tast, but I don't think so. This dish offers the notes for a perfect dish; it has sweet, salty, savory and a little punch from the herb. It is easy to make, just not exactly convenient. Have to have several free minutes from any other cook"

May 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The end result was a recipe that turned out well, but not spectacular. I didn't follow the recipe exactly as the other reviewers expressed that not much sauce was left at the end and that the garlic got burned if added too early, so I made some modifications. I added more balsamic vinegar, broth, and tomatoes; if this changed the flavor dramtical"

Reviewed Asian-Style 3 Bean Salad

Feb 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought this was an excellent recipe without any modifications and I used an organic apricot fruit spread without any added sugar. I rightfully thought this would be a healthy way to get my twin toddlers to eat more beans and they loved it as well as the adults. I am continually impressed with her recipes; every one I have tried has been delicious...
