Reviewed Ty's Thai Salad

Mar 24, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm crazy about the components of this salad but thought it was a little bland. I always make homemade dressings so I knew the ingredients for this dressing were off. I used the ingredients listed (except for sugar and I used agave nectar) but tweaked them to the appropriate measurement. I'll definitely make this again but next time I'll add so"

These were a huge disappointment!! My husband saw these on the show and asked me to make them. I followed the directions and they just didn't turn out. The potatoes did not get crispy and the whites of the egg did not set. I love Ree and make her recipes often but this one was just no good."

This is just delicious! These flavors work so well together and taste so fresh. My husband and I like it as a salad since we don't eat much bread.

I have to agree with the other reviewers about the salt. Ina's recipes are really good, but she uses so much salt so you have to be careful. "

Absolutely delicious!!! Once you make this, it will become a favorite for sure. The combination of flavors and the different textures of the beans is incredible...:)"

Reviewed Easy Parmesan "Risotto"

Feb 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Although this is a super easy recipe, I have a couple of issues with it. Unlike other risotto recipes, it doesn't start with sauteing garlic or scallion/onion before adding the rice and it seems bland that way. Also, one cup of parmesan cheese and 2 teaspoons of salt is just too much. I actually found another baked risotto recipe that has more...

Reviewed Buffalo Wings

Feb 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The steaming really makes for a tender juicy wing and I'll definitely do that again. My only complaint would be that they aren't crispy enough for our liking, even cooking a bit longer. If you are looking for a very crispy wing, this isn't it!""

Reviewed Warm Artichoke and Bacon Dip

Feb 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love the flavor combination of artichokes, bacon, and scallions. My only negative is the lemon juice...I thought it added a slightly odd flavor to the dip.""

These cookies are delicious and so easy to make. They are light and just slightly sweet. A huge hit! These are one of my new go-to cookies. Thanks Giada!!!"

The flavor of this sauce is really good. I substituted apple juice for the brandy. It wasn't as thick as I would have liked but I will try it again."

Reviewed 1770 House Meatloaf

Feb 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this recipe with only one sustitution...ground turkey instead of veal because our local market didn't have ground veal. Other than that, I followed the instructions exactly. It's a delicious meatloaf but seems to be lacking something, just not sure what. The sauce will thicken on its own but takes a while to get there. It's not your traditional...

Jan 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I followed this recipe with the only change being that I used red snapper. This seems a strange flavor combination and I found the taste odd. This the first recipe of Giada's that I've made that didn't turn out as I expected.
