Reviewed spaghetti squash and meatballs

Mar 3, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Proportions are off -- for 4 servings use two 2 lb squashes, and cut the rest of the recipe in 1/2. As written, there was just barely enough squash for 3, and we have plenty of left-over meatballs for several sandwiches (though I don't mind because they are very tasty!). Instead of pre-pureed canned tomatoes I used 2 cans of whole roma tomatoes...

My husband, who normally doesn't think much of chicken pot pie, couldn't stop eating this. I cut the recipe in half and used an 8x8x2 baking dish and it worked out fine. I used a pre-roasted chicken from the grocery deli, and from that I got 3 cups of diced white meat, which was plenty for the 1/2 recipe. I used fresh pearl onions instead of f"

I made the mashed sweet potatoes. I left out the maple syrup, used about 1/2 the amount of brown sugar, and added more than a pinch of salt. It was delicious. I thinking baking the potatoes, instead of boiling them, gave them a much fluffier texture and very tasty. My guests commented on how good the potatoes were and asked how I prepared the...

I made this for a veggie potluck party (substituted chicken stock with "Better Than Boullion" vegetable stock. I also used about 2/3 the amount of Brie. It was delicious, but next time I will make it exactly according to the recipe, because a bit more Brie would have been nice. Make certain to buy a firm Brie, not an extra creamy, soft type. I...

Wish I had read the reviews (as I usually do) ahead of time. DO NOT, use 2 TBS pepper!! I'm sure this stock is just fine without all the pepper, but I'm giving it 1 star out of frustration.""

Reviewed Roast Prime Rib with Thyme Au Jus

Dec 26, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Really easy, and very good -- a big success for Christmas dinner with 7 adults and 3 kids.. I had 7 lbs (enough for the 10 of us) and took it out at exactly 2 hours. It was medium rare to medium. The thermometer read 127. If I had waited until 135 it would have been over done. I'll make this again some time, and when I do I will probably cut...

This was surprisingly good and flavorful. I followed the recipe almost exactly, except that I used about 2 Tablespoons of olive oil instead of 2 teaspoons and diced rather than sliced the onion and red bell pepper. My husband thought it was excellent and was surprised that it didn't have a bunch of butter. We would have liked a little more sauce,...

I gave these a try to see if I wanted to make them for Thanksgiving dinner. They were good, but nothing special. They might be better if roasted along with some chunks of red onion and red bell pepper.
