This is surprisingly fabulous! But you can't go wrong with smoked kielbasa. I had purchased ingredients for another soup but couldn't find the recipe when I got home. So after searching on the Food Tv web site, I came across this one and decided to try on a whim. SO glad I did. I only had gold yukon potatoes so I used those. Took the advice "

I really liked this soup. INCREDIBLY easy to make. Since you puree it at the end, you don't have to worry about getting everything diced and sliced so perfectly.""

I agree with many of the other reviewers in that the gravy is what makes this dish. The pork rub helps keep the roast very tasty and cooking it in all that gravy is a must! I, too, had a ton of gravy leftover and am freezing it to use on other meat dishes. This really is an easy dish to make. I think they rated it "intermediate" because you m...

What a fabulous recipe for being semi-homemade. These are quite foolproof and the batter makes for a great tasting whoopie pie. Still think the original recipe - made with shortening - can't be beat, but this is a VERY close second. I didn't change a thing and it was extremely easy to make.""

Hmmmmm...not one of my favorites. Not sure what I did wrong. Followed the recipe exactly but wasn't thrilled like I thought I would be. The meatballs tended to fall apart even though I made sure to roll them and make sure the cheese was completely sealed. And after browning them and putting them in the oven for 10 minutes, as suggested, they ...

This was fantastic!! Soooooo easy and simple to make and full of flavor. Love it! It's also one of those recipes that will be easy to remember when I'm at the grocery store wondering what to have for dinner."

These are FABULOUS. I don't care how "unhealthy" some may think they are with all the white sugar and white flour. Totally worth it. I've made many, many different recipes and this is the only one I will make from now on.

Reviewed Rosemary and Garlic Roast Leg of Lamb

Dec 20, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was my first time making a roast leg of lamb and it was fabulous. Like the other reviewer, I was a bit concerned about the amount of herbs/onions. I followed the recipe exactly. However, my roast was boneless and it still took a long time to roast. But roasting it at a low temp really made for a delicious taste of meat.
