Simple and delicious, what more can I say? Another winner from AB.

Beautiful in its simplicity. My go-to tomato soup recipe from now on.

I wasn't a squash fan before I made this soup, but AB has shown me the light! Absolutely delicious, that's all I can say.""

Simply divine. The brandy and wine take this soup to the next level. The smell alone is absolutely intoxicating. I will definitely add this to my recipe box. I suggest serving it with grilled Gruyere cheese sandwiches - total heaven.""

Oct 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Make sure to watch the video before you make this, as the recipe is different from the show: 1. You should only use 1 1/2 cups of soy sauce if you are marinating a full pound of tofu. 2. the dried shrimp should be finely chopped. I looked everywhere for salted cabbage, but an internet search only found the one obscure brand that AB happened to ha...

I thought this was really bland. I barely tasted orange or honey at all.""

Reviewed Sunday Night Roast Beef and Gravy with Easy Rice

Aug 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The meat turned out absolutely perfect. I thought the gravy was a tad thin and unimpressive flavor-wise, but I will definitely make the roast again.""

Reviewed Copycat Olive Garden Minestrone Soup by Todd Wilbur

Jul 20, 2011 in on Food.com

Probably the most flavorful minestrone I have made to date, but I still think it could use some improvement. I personally would have liked a more savory, tomato-y broth; maybe even a little sausage."

Jul 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Pretty ordinary. Good if you're making ribs for a crowd, but I prefer something with more zing."

Reviewed TBL Panzanella

Jul 11, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious, of course! I made the full recipe and it was just the right amount for 2 main-course servings, rather than 4 like the recipe states. You can mix and match tomato varieties at your leisure, anything goes with this recipe - it's all good!"

Reviewed Chips and Fish

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

The batter for the fish is just about perfect. Flavorful, puffy yet crisp, and browns perfectly. As with most AB recipes, this is easy to make & tastes great!"

Reviewed Thai-Style Halibut with Coconut-Curry Broth

May 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very good flavor, but I thought the sauce could use more coconut milk. I also thought the spinach tasted slimy. Definitely go with red curry paste for this recipe. If you can't get it, for god's sakes don't use curry powder from a jar! Use Alton Brown's Garam Masala in his Lamb Tikka Masala recipe."

Reviewed Chicken and Dumplings

Apr 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Amazing! Really easy to make, delicious and filling, plus one serving is only about 400 calories. The sauce took longer to thicken than the recipe predicted, and I would cut back a little on the salt in the broth next time. Otherwise, this recipe is just about perfect!"

Reviewed Fall River Clam Chowder

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

I made this with freshly-dug razor clams. Very good, but not "the best I've ever had" as some reviewers say. Emeril should fire whoever writes his recipes because they're always full of mistakes. One pound of leeks does not equal a cup. It's more like 3 cups unless you just use the white parts which is a waste of good leeks and isn't specified in...

Good comfort food, easy to make, and very pretty. Goes good with herb mashed potatoes and Sauvignon Blanc.

Reviewed Old Fashion Smoked Duck Stew

Jan 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made it without beets and with chicken broth. Not bad, but it lacks the rich, deep flavor you expect from duck. Plus the recipe has a couple of errors. The biggest one is that it never tells you when to add the garlic. I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be during the second step when you add the celery/carrots/etc. There also isn't a very accurate...

Reviewed Fusilli with Sausage, Artichokes, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Jan 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Really not that great. All the flavors just mesh together into this general salty mishmash. Plus the recipe itself is not written very well. Am I supposed to drain the fat from the sausage? Shouldn't I start boiling the water for the pasta at the beginning? Why can't I add the sauce to the larger pasta pot, instead of the pasta to the smaller sauce...

Reviewed Grilled Clams with Basil Breadcrumbs

Dec 30, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I gotta say, I wasn't impressed. The whole thing was much too dry and salty. Plus there was a ton of breadcrumb mixture leftover.

Reviewed Squid Vicious

Dec 21, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Tasty & easy to make once you get the squid cleaned. The miso gives it a really deep earthy flavor you don't usually get in stir-frys. I cut my squid into ringlets and used the tentacles 'cause I like 'em. I think I would have preferred it spicier - maybe slice up the arbol chiles to integrate them more into the dish?

Reviewed Lamb Tikka Masala

Dec 19, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The sauce was a little too heavy on the tomatoes for my tastes, but the spices were spot on. I didn't have the gumption to make the flower pot tandoor, so I just made the lamb under the broiler - turned out awesome. I'll definitely keep the masala recipe, but I don't think I'll make this exact dish again. Not my favorite AB recipe, but it's great...

Reviewed Gnocchi with Prosciutto, Spring Peas, and Chanterelles

Sep 28, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I'm a little confused by this recipe because peas are in season in the spring, yet chanterelles are in season in the fall.

I've never had Gnocchi before so I can't comment on its lightness, but I thought it was tasty, easy to make, and didn't taste dense or heavy to me. Overall I felt like the prosciutto overwhelmed the other more...
