Baker's error....Although they tasted good, I did not manage to roll out the pastry layers neatly. Next time I will use the individual pastry puffs and give that a try.They didn't look pretty but they tasted good. All-in-all, nice flavor. "

Reviewed Fish Tacos

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

I used tilapia in a fish griller. The fish was tasty and flakey. I cut most of the heat and reduced the onions, particularly in the garnish because of requests. Even kids ate the tacos. I served them with soft and hard shells and it worked well. This was a nice fish dish. Good tasting, easy to make and a hit with almost everyone. ""

Reviewed Linguine with Tuna Puttanesca

Jan 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

YUM! Even the kids loved it and were looking for more. I used the smallest amount (1/4) red pepper flakes and it was enough kick for the flavor. The family was looking for more tuna so next time I will use a little more than the 5 oz. This is definitely a nice alternative and an easy option. I am keeping this one! ""

Nov 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A 50-50 hit at the buffet. Some guests loved the salty, tangy flavor. Others thought it was much to salty but that is the nature of the prosciutto. The carrot mixture definitley does not need added salt. I used the bag shredded carrots making this s simple appetizer to put together quickly.""

Good dish and a great breakfast option. I made a few tweaks. I added onions and sprinked some cheddar cheese in the egg mixture when it started seting. Used a combination of cheeses for more flavor. It was a hit with the adults, not so much with the kids.
