Reviewed fast blue cheese dressing

Feb 15, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this last night for a steak house valentine's day dinner at home. I put it over iceburg lettuce and grape tomatoes for super easy wedge salads. I didn't have any worcestershire sauce on hand, so I added a few drops of soy sauce, red wine vinegar and hot sauce. It was awesome! I also added some extra blue cheese since we like it extra chunky....

Dec 22, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Wow I am so impressed with myself for making such an amazing tart!!! =) This is a great recipe, but I used not even half the apples, half the sugar, and half the apricot jam. I cut the apples much thinner than 1/4 inch, so maybe that was it? Overall, this was great and I'll definitely be making this again.

Oct 9, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This is my go-to Chicken Salad recipe. It is literally a 10 out of 10. Roasting the chicken this way creates the most moist, delicious chicken. There is just the right amount of mayo, not too much, not too little. I use 1 and a half teaspoons of salt and it comes out perfect. If I were to change anything, I would MAYBE cut back a tiny bit on...

I made this for a BBQ and it was very good. I used the amounts of herbs and ingredients for the dressing that were called for in the recipe, but I used 3 lbs of potatoes, and I still did not use all of the dressing. I will definitely make this again but next time I will try it with a little less vinegar and lemon juice. It packed quite a "zing""

I have read only amazing reviews of this recipe, so I was super excited to make Ina's Raspberry Crumble Bars. I am a HUGE, HUGE Ina fan, but these didn't knock my socks off. Sorry Ina!!!!

I made this recipe two times -- the first time, I followed Ina's instructions almost exactly, except I used only two cloves of garlic. It turned out well, but not amazing. I don't love the flavor of thyme, and the oregano was very overpowering. The second time, I used a little less olive oil and added a splash of chicken stock. I also used onl"

I made this today and it is delicious. I only used 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano because I don't like a strong oregano flavor, and it is excellent. I also passed the tomatoes through a food mill first. I can't wait to use this on my first ever homemade pizza tomorrow! "

I made this recipe tonight for a dinner party and it was a BIG hit. I did not follow it to a T, and it was still delicious. I read through the comments below and liked the idea of using half and half instead of heavy cream, so I did that. I was a bit worried about the sauce in general, because after about 30 minutes of boiling, the half and hal...

Apr 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This sauce is AMAZING. Oh how I love it. I don't have a food mill but both times I've made this I just quickly zapped the tomatoes in a food processor and was good to go. It is definitely a labor of love, but its worth the time and effort. I am going to make it this weekend to use in lasagna, can't wait! "

I am a big Ina fan, and love many of her recipes. This is a great recipe for easy entertaining. Just make the sauce in advance, then slather it over the fish, stick it in the oven and you are done! I would have given this 5 stars, but I think the recipe calls for too much salt. Don't get me wrong, I like salt probably more than most people, but...

After reading these reviews, I was very confident that this would turn out great, but I have to say I was disappointed. The sauce is way too lemony, and I had to doctor it up significantly until I was comfortable serving it.

This was by far the best spaghetti and meatballs I have ever had!!!! I blew my family away with this one!!!!! It by far exceeded my expectations -- I was a little skeptical at first because the meatballs on their own were slightly bland, but with the sauce everything came together beautifully. AMAZING!!! I did add a little tomato paste to help thicken...
