I'm surprised I did not review this before, it is so delicious. I did add a few things though. Shredded carrots, julienne red bell pepper and toasted sliced almonds. Super yummy, especially the dressing. A fresno chile, is a red jalape�o, the skin is thinner than a jalape�o pepper, and the flavor is less spicy and more fruity. They are worth...

Reviewed cumin grilled sea scallops with chickpea salad and red pepper-tahini vinaigrette

Jan 2, 2015 on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this several times, and my husband and I love it. But I make the chickpea salad a lot, it's a favorite in our house. The red pepper tahini vinaigrette is delicious and can be used many ways. We love this recipe. Salt can always be adjusted to taste for individual palettes, and I usually cut it in half for new recipes, then add more if...

Replied to Clams, Chilies, and Parsley Pizza Recipe : Food Network

I think you did not reduce your sauce enough. Let it go a few minutes more to thicken and you will have a thicker sauce.

I don't think you let your sauce reduce long enough if it was too runny. Let it go a few minutes more to thicken up.

This is the best pizza ever! It's not hard to make. I have made a good number of pizza's, made my own dough, and used store bought, both. I don't use the oven, I use the bbq. I will make this pizza many times more! Just delicious, thank you Franny!

Tasty and delicious, but don't overcook or they will be hard. Great for gifts, I made them for holiday treats this year.

Dec 13, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is delicious. My tip would be to follow her recommendation and not to cook the agave too long or too hot, it will reduce and get thick. I used the gingersnap cookies, bc I thought it would add great flavor, and it does, but I think you could use the graham crackers as well and it would be just fine. This is a beautiful presentation and it...

I was skeptical of this technique, but the method rocks! I made mushroom and kale risotto and saut���ed the onion, mushrooms, garlic and kale in olive oil, then added dry sherry. Then added the risotto and warmed broth and put it all in the oven. Afterward, I added the remaining warmed broth, butter and cheese and stirred; but it was done in 25-30...

These are the best nuts! I made four batches this year over the holidays and they are so delicious and make great gifts. I bumped up the chipotle just slightly after the first batch. And I recommend using all the recommended rosemary. Just delicious!

We love this soup and make it all the time in the cooler months. I made it today although it's hot here and it is so delicious. I love the parsley and dill with it. It freezes great too. The smoked paprika really makes it in my opinion. I had to make it because our freezer was empty!

Excellent, and easy on the parmesan, which works well for us. It's all about the mint. We made it with lamb chops, bbq'd on the grill, and it was very tasty. Will definitely make again."

I have no idea what a "real" Cocido is supposed to taste like. And Rachael states on her show that she "loosely" interprets this dish. But my husband asks me to make this all the time in the fall and winter months. We like this for what it is, not a "true Cocido", obviously. Some people are so harsh. What about just being thankful for having"

This was delicious and easy. Just marinate the lamb and then grill it. The marinade has great flavor and the walnut red pepper sauce is delicious. We used chia pita's and when we had leftovers, we stuffed them with spinach and cucumbers because that is what was in the fridge, although the mint is really flavorful! Very tasty, my husband and I "

We added some grilled Naan bread with that Dukkah nut and spice blend from Trader Joe's sprinkled over the top and everything was superb, especially the red pepper and tahini vinaigrette!

This was delicious! All the components work perfectly together with the great flavor of the grilled figs. We used arugula, which, with its naturally peppery flavor just enhanced the rest of the dish.
