Reviewed Roasted Butternut Squash Soup and Roasted Parsnip Soup

Oct 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Squash Soup was excellent. Has a nice earthy flavor and creaminess to it. I added a little cayenne to give it a finish of heat. Also I loved the flavor and aroma of the italian sausage in here as well. I might even try using a hot sausage next time since mild is just for flavor.
I did not try the parsnip soup."

Reviewed Lemon Fusilli with Arugula

Aug 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This dish was fantastic. It had a great balance of lemon, cream and peppery flavor from the arugula. Even though it would not have done a whole lot, I did not use the last lemon because it was already flowing {not yet overflowing} with lemon flavor.
I would recommend this dish for sure. Don't wuss out on the cream"

Mar 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This dish was a tasty one! I did not use two cloves, it was more like a pinch of coarse ground cloves which we could still definitely taste. I would recommend anyone to try this recipe since most of the ingredients should already be in your kitchen. It would be nice on a cold night as it is a warm dish especially with the cinnamon and cloves.""

Mar 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Amazing. Fantastic flavor. Really, can anything go wrong with bacon? It was a great dish. We had never tried bucatini noodles and they were a little difficult to eat since they are big, so I will be using regular spaghetti noodles next time for ease of eating. The sauce and meatballs were very easy to make. I used half beef and half venison f...

Mar 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This dish was just ok. The taste was pretty good but it was really heavy. I would say that you should have it on a very cold day and only if you need something to warm you up and put you to sleep. Other than that, I would not really care to have it. Worth the try though.""

Feb 8, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was fantastic. My wife and I are egg people and we have them almost every morning. I tried this for a little change of pace from the regular country style omlete and it was great and had great flavor. I only put in half of the serrano so my wife could take the heat since she is a little white girl that grew up on meat and potatoes :) and ...

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

This was great. I loved the creaminess from the butter and the cheese. If I were going to serve this to a group I would expect that this recipe makes a hefty serving for two (just depending on if you like the sauce strong or mild in flavour).
If you have not had much experience with sage or dont know if you like it... take a bite of the...

I would truly give this recipe a 4.5 but that is not an option and I think it should have a better overall rating. I would say that a dish is pretty good when you have someone take three helpings of it- which happened last night. The flavor in this was great. I used Barefoots cabernet sauvignon which, everyone says that its not good to drink bu...

Jan 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe has fantastic flavors. I love the grilled/ broiled chicken because it has a little burnt taste to it and really improves the flavor of the whole dish. When making the garlic-ginger paste, I took out about 1.5 Tbls each of the garlic and ginger so i wouldnt have any leftover. I didnt have quick access to a grill so I broiled my chic...

Jan 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is my new favorite Chili! My dad made this for the family last night cutting out the jalapenos and aneheims to make it more family friendly. It still had a bit of spice but ladies and all were able to handle the little kick. He also did not include the chuck or the potatoes which were both defenitely not missed. The flavor was fantastic ...

Reviewed Honey Brined Chicken with Lemon and Sage

Jan 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was fanastic. I had never tried brining a bird before and it was so easy. The only thing I did different from the recipe was that I made it dance before brining to get those muscles ready for a good soak and I used 3 ounces of salt instead of 4; this being that if it was too salty I could just salt it while eating but i didnt have to. The...

Reviewed Crostini with Thyme-Roasted Tomatoes

Dec 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these for a party recently and they were fantastic. I served them on homemade french baguettes and added a little more garlic. I also used roma tomatoes that were fairly big, so I cut them in thirds which worked well. I would definitely recommend these for any appetizer or party because of their simplicty and eye appeal.""

We thought this was a great tasting pea soup. If you go into it expecting the "original split pea soup" ya know with the ham and carrots etc... you will be, to some extent, disappointed because of the differences in texture and flavor.
It calls for 5 cups of chicken broth which, when I first tested the soup I felt like it had a strong chicken...
