Reviewed Garlic and Lemon Oil

Dec 5, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I have made garlic oil many times but I NEVER EVER boil the oil. I use a double boiler and heat the oil and garlic at a low temperature so as to not break the oil down. Adding the lemon peels is a great idea. I used it as a finish on pan seared tilapia....delicious.

Mar 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this right after viewing the show. Simple and quick, and I had most of the ingredients on hand. The only substitution I made was the bouillon base and the diced tomatoes since I didn't have those. I had beef stock leftovers, and a can of crushed tomatoes with basil, and stirred in a big spoonful of tomato paste. The recipe calls for 1 t...

Try this with strawberries....yum. Easiest recipe ever. The dough is soft and gooey, and the fruit tastes warm and flavorful. The recipe in her book uses just one cup of flour, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of sugar. Both work well, depending on how much dough you want. In our family, it's all about the dough! The layering technique allows the batter...

Reviewed Kentucky Lemonade

Aug 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm not from Kentucky, but when I saw the name of this recipe, I immediately thought Kentucky bourbon would be the alcohol. This recipe comes closer to being a Lynchburg Lemonade. (That's Lynchburg, TN; where Jack Daniels is made.) Just add 1/2 ounce of Triple Sec and you pretty much have it. Increase the frozen lemonade concentrate to 3 oz and...

Reviewed Sauteed Kale

Dec 31, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love greens of any kind, but kale is the most nutricious of all. This recipe is fabulous. I love the tang of the vinegar and the garlic adds the perfect savory touch. It's my go to for turnip greens and spinach too.

Comfort times eight. I have made this several times. Great for my single lifestyle. I put it into four 500ml Corning Ware ramekin type bowls, and one larger one holding four servings. I let them cool instead of baking, then seal in bags with my Food Saver and pop them into the freezer. Then when I come home from work I just preheat the oven, make...

Reviewed Iced Tea with Grenadine

Nov 23, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I love the flavor of grenadine. The real thing that is. The stuff you buy in the liquor store is mostly sugar and very little if any pomegranate.

Anyway, this tea is a delightful change of pace. I make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas since I first saw Giada make it. The kids are particularly happy with it. Thanks Gia...

Reviewed Sunny's Family Therapy Cranberry Rosemary Digestif

Nov 14, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

In the show, Sunny says to pour a "shot" of bourbon and says it is 1.5 ounces. In my training as a certifiend mixologist, a shot is 1 ounce, and a jigger is 1.5 ounces. Just sayin.

Tasty little libation, either amount you like to use.

I wouldn't toss the strained cranberries though. Used mine in my cranberry...

Reviewed Red Lentil Soup

Oct 16, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Never had any Indian food I liked. That just changed with this soup. I didn't have any cumin seeds so I used 1/2 tsp ground. No tomato or chili, so I used a can of Rotel. Hit it with my immersion blender and simmered to thicken. YUM YUM Thanks Aarti. Can't wait to try more of your recipes.
