Mar 29, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Amazing recipe and pretty easy, too! I made this while I was in Canada and I couldn't find chipotle in adobo or corn tortillas (my guests were trying to stay wheat free). It was still good with chipotle salsa subbed and in a hard shell taco (all I could find) but I'm sure it would be WAY better with soft tacos (flour or corn). I also had it in a ...

Mar 29, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm so surprised by this recipe and completely agree with the negative reviews. I like many of her other lamb recipes too (italian lamb chops, aromatic lamb shank stew), but this one turned out tough with a burned away marinade. The only reason I'm giving it an extra star is because of the pea puree. It was almost heartbreaking for me to make thi...

Some harsh reviews... but I like this for a good, quick 10 minute meal that's comforting - kind of meat-and-potatoey!""

If you like lamb, you would love this recipe! It's comforting and exotic at the same time! Goes amazingly with couscous as well - highly recommend!""

I had to bake these 15 minutes more and the edges were crunchy but the middle was still gooey... but that kind of made them better! My guests really liked the crunchy-ooey-gooey combo! Super chocolatey, too!""

This recipe is a family favorite! I almost always use smoked salmon (not lox or cured salmon, but the cooked stuff)... comes out perfect every time! The fish sauce, lime, and lime zest are key - I've tried it without them and it's not quite the same. ""

This makes a pretty easy, tasty side. I always leave the skin on and it's not a problem - maybe others have used butternut squash with thicker skins...""

I almost swooned when I tasted this. It was fast and easy and really did taste just like those sugary, grainy, bun-shaped doughnuts! And the sauce was reminiscent of yummy fruit filling... but better, because it's mostly real fruit! ""

This was yummy and fast, but surprisingly not as chocolatey as I thought it would be... I'm waiting for that super-chocolatey lava cake that tastes almost like a melting dark chocolate truffle!""

Mar 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I agree with all the comments that were made so far. It's a great cake, but it's light and fluffy, not dense like on the show. The topping also didn't stick - was kind of rolling away! I baked it in a glass pie dish. I was also creaming the four tablespoons of butter with the cup of sugar for 15 minutes and it wasn't getting fluffy at all! I frea...

This is one of my favorite dishes - I often use it as a side or a relish/dip for middle Eastern/Mediterranean style wraps. I don't use as much oil either, and will thin out with a little chicken stock when it gets too thick.""

I love this recipe - one of my standbys for years. Goes great with roast chicken and some steamed green beans. You can't really follow an exact recipe when it comes to risotto, though - you have to just keep adding stock until it is al dente and then add the cream mixture. If you go too long, your risotto will be gluey. It takes practice, unfortu...

This is a quick, easy and comforting standby. Extra yum-o if you add chorizo, and I expect pepperoni would be awesome too. You should probably eat it right away, while it's hot. If you're expecting it to taste exactly like a pizza, it doesn't - it tastes like the innards of a grilled cheese, which is pretty good in my book! ""
