Reviewed Hearty Italian Chicken and Vegetable Soup

Oct 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Recipe was ok. I thought the fennel taste was overpowering. If I made it again, I would cut the fennel or reduce it by half."

Reviewed Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables

Jun 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is by far one of my most favorite pasta recipes. This dish is not only easy to make, but also very pretty. It's one of my standard go-to when I have company over and often will add a protein to it (chicken or italian sausage.)"

Reviewed Individual Strawberry Trifles

Jun 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Though I had to try the whipped cream part twice to get this right, it was definitely a hit. I did add sugar to the balsalmic mix to make it sweeter and added blueberries to the strawberry mixture. Make sure your bowl and beater are very cold before whipping the cream (I put both in the freezer for 10-15min prior). Also, the portions for the wh"

Reviewed Asparagus, Pecorino and Red Onion Salad

Jun 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

LOVE this recipe. It's become my standard entertaining salad as you can make it the night before and really let the asparagus soak in the red wine. I didn't use the full amount of vinegar -- 50-75% of the amount in the recipe will suffice."

Jun 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought it was a good and easy recipe. I subsituted baby spinach and will definitely use more zuchinni next time. I will also reduce the amount of cheese -- it covered up the vegetables too much."

Reviewed Pork Chops Stuffed with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Spinach

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

The filling was good on its own, but for some reason tasted mediocre once cooked in the pork chop. My pork came out a little dry, though I did buy a lean cut so that was probably the culprit. The chop was also too thin to make a pocket so i folded it over the stuffing, which was also a bit of a disaster. I usually love all of Giada's recipes, b"

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

Healthy and easy dish to make. I thought it needed more seasoning to make it more flavorful but I also substituted lean ground buffalo meat for the sausage to make it healthier, which may have impacted the taste. "

Reviewed Chicken Cacciatore

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

This was a delicious recipe, though as others have commented, it was very runny. It took 3x the amount of time for the sauce to reduce, but it was much better the next day. Next time, I'll make it a day ahead so that the sauce thickens and flavors are better."

Reviewed Roman-style Chicken

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

This was a delicious and super easy recipe. I added onions, but otherwise made the recipe per the directions. The chicken did take a little longer to cook than indicated, but perhaps that was due to the size of the chicken breast I used.""

Reviewed Chicken and Bean Puff Pastry Empanadas

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

I really liked the filling of the empanadas -- the spices worked really well with the chicken and black beans. I used a rotisserie chicken but only used the white meat. My only problem with the empanadas was that they were a little dry, though that may have been because i used the refrigerated pie crust for the dough rather than the puff pastry."

Reviewed Tres Leches (Three Milks Cake, Latin America

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

This was my first attempt at tres leches, and it really came out so well. Like others have suggested, I made extra of the cream topping. I doubled that part of the recipe, though I could have gotten by with just making 50% more. I also let the cake sit over night so that it could soak up more of the milk. I also substituted aa simple whipped...

Reviewed Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

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

This was a big hit at a dinner party and so easy to do. I let the meat marinade in the chimichurri overnight, and the flavors were perfect. The chimichurri was fabulous -- differentiated enough to stand out but not so much that it wasn't authentic."
