Reviewed Chicken with Shallots

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

I made this for dinner tonight and we LOVED it!!! So elegant and delicious. I read other reviews, but did not find it too lemony. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and it took a bit longer to finish off in the oven because they were thick. I garnished with fresh chopped parsley, and I accompanied it with Ina's roasted cherry tomatoes. My "

Outstanding! This was my best risotto yet according to my hubbie... It's going to be my new go-to risotto dish! For those of you who are hesitant to even attempt making risotto, TRY!!! Its not difficult... Just a bit time consuming because of the stirring, but it's worth it!!! Thanks, Anne! And, I did add extra mushroom puree and it makes quite a "

Not bad... Followed recipe exactly with the exception of brown rice, and it was decent. I have made better Emeril recipes!! Glad that I tried it though! "

Reviewed Mushroom Stroganoff with Goat Cheese

Apr 21, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Excellent....deglazed with white wine and beef stock. I didn't use all the goat cheese the recipe called for as I wasn't certain we would like it. Also, I incorporated dried shitakes which I had reconstituted and used that mushroom flavor stock, too. We both highly enjoyed it, and my husband stated it was as good if not better than making it wit"

Excellent! Cut the recipe down a bit for my husband & I. I didn't have any parsley on hand so I used more thyme sprigs. Also, to cut the calories, I used turkey bacon & added more than recipe called for to give more flavor. In addition, I used the cream very sparingly as it was actually delicious without it! As other reviewers stated, I left mine"

FABULOUS! Made this tonight as an appetizer, and it was delicious! I always use ciabatta bread for crostini... I followed exactly but cut down on recipe for just me and my husband. Thank you again, Ina, for another outstanding recipe! My "Jeffrey" loved it!!! It's a keeper!"

Jan 21, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Not a fan....I used Chicken instead of sausage here. I thought the vodka sauce came out wonderfully, but the ricotta cheese that the recipe calls for is way too much! It overpowered the vodka cream sauce flavor. I WILL make the vodka cream sauce again! The casserole was not worth making again. I still love ya though, Emeril!"

They sounded fabulous but I made them
Tonight for a side dish & they were disappointing. There wasn't much flavor to them! I added some fresh spinach to add to the nutritional value & incorporated a little bit of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Probably will not be making again....:("

Jan 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Soooooo yummy!!! It sounded interesting & we love Mexican food so I attempted. I would have given it 5 stars; however, it came out very watery. So, we very carefully drained water once we took out of oven. The 1 2/3 cups water that recipe calls for is a bit much. It didn't reduce down at all while simmering. So, next time I will reduce the amoun...

Jan 8, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Watched the show this morning and made it for dinner tonight...excellent! I opted not to make the curry sauce and it was just fine without it. I let it marinade for a good half hour. The salad is out of this world! I didn't have pine nuts so I used walnuts instead. Also, I didn't use grapefruit just mandarin oranges since I had those. This is a ...

Made this dish tonight for dinner after watching the show this morning. This was excellent! I followed the recipe exactly, but just left out the jalepeno. I suggest using queso fresco. I probably used more cilantro than it called for because we just love it. This dish accompanied my fish tacos (grilled tilapia) with cilantro & avocado cream sau...

Reviewed Pork Chops with Fennel and Caper Sauce

Aug 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Not so good. Substituted the pork with chicken breasts & followed recipe just as it is. We never had fennel, so we didn't know what to expect. The flavor was just lacking here. There was definitely enough sauce, so I served it over whole wheat angel hair pasta. However, this dish still didn't meet our expectations. Normally Giada's recipes are ...

Made this for dinner tonight...excellent! However, I didnt realize when I started it that it was going to bake in oven for 1 hr! Way too hungry when we get home from work! I did use low fat ricotta cheese as well as no fat mozzarella. I think I should have made all 5 cups of marinara cause it did need more sauce. My man really enjoyed it & will definitely...

Excellent! Made this dish for dinner this evening & how quick, easy, & delicious. My grocery store did not have any fresh red snapper, so I opted for tilapia. It was just as good.
