Reviewed Chicken, Artichoke and Cannellini Bean Spezzatino

Aug 25, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this pretty much according to the recipe. I didn't have frozen artichoke hearts, so I used canned (drained and rinsed). I also decided to serve over ditalini, which was good. I'd definitely make this again. It was much more delicious than I expected it to be."

Reviewed Aromatic Noodles With Lime Peanut Sauce

Jun 22, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very good. I made the sauce exactly as called for in the recipe, but might add a little more lime juice next time as I really couldn't detect the lime in the sauce. You could use whatever vegies you like. I added carrots for color. Red bell pepper would also be good."

These tarts were very good. The shell is more of a cookie/shortbread shell than a pie crust shell and as other reviewers said it was hard. No, I didn't over work the dough, but I did make it in the food processor like Ina did and I think it is harder to control how much you work dough.

The next time, I will make my favorite barbecue sauce to serve with the pork. These are t"

While the flavor of this dish was good, the meat was tough even after cooking a full two hours. The next time I would use a tenderized round steak or even just a round steak. Also make sure you pound the meat uniformly thin. I would cook it at a lower temperature (300 degrees) for at least two hours or even 2-1/2 hours. I added toasted pine nu"

Reviewed Gnocchi with Prosciutto, Spring Peas, and Chanterelles

Feb 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The gnocchi were very good, although mine started to disintegrate when I cooked them. This may have been partly my fault because I was afraid to work the dough too much. Don't be. Add enough flour and maybe even an extra egg to make sure the dough really holds together. I really wanted to like the sauce because it looked so good on the show, ...
