Reviewed spaghetti squash with marinara

Nov 17, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I used this recipe only for the squash. It was totally overcooked after 30 minutes! Very disappointing (and mushy).

I haven't tried this recipe, but have been making cheese wrapped olives for years and there is an easier way. Use a basic cheese straw dough (sharp cheddar, butter, flour, salt & cayenne pepper and whiz in food processor. Then wrap the dough around large pimento stuffed olives like she describes. Bake and serve. Freeze beautifully and can...

May 28, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is tough, because the end product was really great in taste, BUT the method is not practical for the home cook, in my opinion. Cooking the chicken under the broiler just caused intense smoke, even in a deep roasting pan, and totally soiled my newly cleaned oven. Additionally, the breasts were overcooked using this method. But, the sauce wa"

Reviewed Braised Short Ribs

Feb 19, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I think my short ribs were too fatty, because there was little edible meat, mostly fat when all was said and done. But, the broth and flavor is phenomenal. I would like to try with chuck roast, cut in hunks with same other ingredients. I like my veggies a little bigger, so did not make into a paste. "

Should have read the reviews more closely before I made it. Was o.k. but just not enough flavor for a dish beyond a boring weeknight dinner. If I make it again, I will punch up ALL flavors. I made it with cilantro lime rice, but that didn't kick it up near enough!"

Reviewed Enchilada Lasagna

Jan 13, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm giving this 2 stars because of the enchilada sauce, which is very good and easy. I prepared it as prescribed and it was one mushy mess! I would NEVER make this again and cannot understand how so many rated it so high. Maybe you should NOT cover it while baking??? It is a throwaway, unless I can figure another way to use the filling...."

Reviewed Fried Fish Sandwich

Dec 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I used fresh caught striped bass and it was outstanding. That particular fish was so mild, I think it would be even better with catfish. The sauce is killer. I added pickles, but ended up taking them off--not needed. The sauce would be great with fried oysters! "

Reviewed Cinnamon Rolls

Dec 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The dough is fantastic to work with! I highly recommend it for ease, not as anything healthy, of course. The filling is just plain overly decandant--too much butter, WAY too much sugar. All of my family had sugar overload and wasn't appreciative. I made the whole recipe, but only finished half the dough by the recipe, thank goodness. The seco"

Reviewed Swiss Chard and Sweet Pea Manicotti (Winter

Sep 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this yesterday for a small dinner party to rave reviews. It is VERY rich. Two manicotti's were enough for most (one person had second's). I used more garlic and that is the only change I made. Next time I will turn it into a layered lasagna because the manicotti shells were just not worth the effort. I would also add even more chard and"

Reviewed Spinach and Ricotta Gnudi

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

We were not wowed in the least. I even went to the trouble to make my own ricotta. Just didn't do it for us. Admittedly, I substituted several types of mushrooms (what I could find) for what was called for, but the gnudi themselves were kind of bland. It needed much more. Maybe we are just not a fan of dumplings.... Won't try this again."

Killer recipe--propotions just right. I don't like my Cosmo's very sweet and they are usually too sweet in restaurants. This recipe has an exceptional balance. It is now my go-to Cosmo recipe and yes, they will sneak up on you FAST! Great pool time drink, but I'll make this year round. "

Made this recipe after seeing it on Best Thing I Ever Made. Wow! The flavors are amazing. Very different from your everyday tomato based rib recipe. I actually made the ribs ahead of time and wrapped in foil. Reheated for a boat trip picnic dinner, along with chipotle baked beans and cole slaw. Friends said they were the best ribs they ever "
