Reviewed Butternut Squash Gnocchi with Balsamic Brown Butter

Dec 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I liked it.. Made a few changes such as using delicata squash and adding bacon to the final plating. I also just eyeballed a sauce with much less butter, more shallots, a splash of balsamic, salt, pepper, and sage. Since I made changes I couldn't give it a 5, but this was a pretty fast dinner considering i was making gnocchi, and we both loved the"

a tasty slaw. after making as written, i added a splash of red wine vinegar, more dill, and a few pinches of sugar to give it more of a slaw taste. i also added a shredded carrot. oh yeah, and i just grated my kohlrabi after i grated the cabbage. no need to put your knife skills to test with those matchsticks..."

Reviewed Easy Braised Artichokes

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

this is a great way to prepare artichokes. to the reviewers who noted the artichokes were tough, you shouldn't have thrown them away, but just cooked the artichokes longer. artichokes do take a while to cook. if you had really large ones, they might take longer than 60 minutes. i used small-med size chokes and it took about 55 minutes. absolutely...

Reviewed Spanakopita

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

this might be the best starting point for spanakopita on the food network site. i altered the recipe quite a bit, though. i used lots of fresh basil (not dried) and added a lot of dill, as well as 3 chopped scallions. also, just a teaspoon or so of lemon juice, but more feta. in terms of the butter, you definitely don't need more than a stick. ju...

Reviewed Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

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

what a beautiful recipe. i made many adjustments, just because i didn't have time to go to the store, and it was still fantastic with a large depth of flavor. instead of the toasted spice rub, i just used a combination of coriander, cinnamon, black pepper, and salt. also, i used a touch less molasses after reading some previous reviews, and i tho...

Reviewed Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya

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

This was the first jambalaya I had ever made and it was delicious. Although it looks like a long list of ingredients, it is actually very simple to prepare and hard to screw up. The leftovers kept well and we ate the last of it 4 days later, which I thought was impressive for the shrimp.""
