Reviewed Cauliflower "Mac" and Cheese Casserole

Oct 27, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I tweaked the recipe, since I did not have any cream cheese. I heated some low fat milk, added a roux with butter and flour, and added cottage cheese and whisked it. I then added some sauteed onions and garlic, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cheddar cheese, all to taste. I put this in a casserole bowl with steamed zucchini and cauliflower, added the...

Oh, WOW!!!!! This is absolutely delicious! It is sweet, moist, and perfect. I did not have any problems with cooking it--35 minutes was fine. I used the ginger and it gave a unique flavor which added to the yumminess. Instead of nutmeg in the mixture on top, I used a mixture I had of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice and it was great!!!! I made"

Feb 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a wonderful recipe! I love Anne's cooking and she is so practical and fun to watch. I made this soup following most directions, but did not put the tomato mixture into the blender. Instead, I added the chunks of bread to the tomato mixture, cooked it until the bread was soft, and then put some of the mixture into the blender at that p...

Feb 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love Sunny's down to earth and fun approach to cooking and her recipes are always great. But this recipe seems different than what she demonstrated on the show. I did not remember her pouring the water used to soak the mussels into the cooking pot. I remember her pouring a whole bottle of white wine into the pot. That is how I made this rec...

Wow, wow, and wow! These cookies are just fabulous! The salt is what makes the taste just pop! Easy to make--made them while reheating dinner, and had them as dessert once they cooled. Anne, you are just terrific and thanks for the wonderful recipes and great ideas. I learn so much from watching you!""

Loved this recipe! My mom used to make these and when I made them tonight (with the balsamic beef brisket Anne demonstrated on the same show), the pancakes were great! Very easy to make, and it is a good idea to do the "test" pancake to check for flavoring. Thanks, Anne!""

Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! This is a 5+++++ recipe! I made this tonight with a piece of chuck roast (the stores in my area only had commercially wrapped corned beef) and the results were wonderful! I followed the recipe and did what Anne did on the show, and it was a success. The sauce was just a little bit too vinegary for the people I was coo...

WOW, WOW and WOW!!!!! Anne Burrell, you rock! This recipe is absolutely awesome! I made it last night and THIS recipe will be the only pot roast recipe I will follow from now on. The flavors were complex and layered and it was incredibly delicious. I could not find Jerusalem artichokes here where I live, so I substituted carrots and it was s...

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

Hmmm......I was a bit disappointed with this recipe. I am an experienced cook and followed the recipe closely. I couldn't taste much of the banana or the chocolate. I used reduced fat crescent rolls, which seemed fine, but as a whole I expected something different. I have a great recipe for monkey bread with cinnamon and sugar and big biscuits"

Wow! Anne Burrell, you give us great recipes! This was excellent and the chicken was so very moist and tasty. I made the stuffing a bit different--I didn't use chorizo but some other sausage, and I didn't have manchego cheese so used some other cheese I had. Chef Anne, you are a genius! Loved, loved, loved this recipe!!!!!!!!! Thanks!"

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

Loved this! The pickling of the onions was fantastic.....I made the onions for another meal tonight and paired them with sauteed bok choy that had been sauteed with garlic. The contrast of the two tastes were incredible and I loved it! I think the onions could be used with other sauteed veggies. The chicken was great--moist and tasty--thanks!"

I saw Ina making the frosting last week on television and wanted to use the recipe. I followed everything as she stated, but the frosting was very runny, even after whipping it a while in my stand mixer. I just read the reviews and I will try the recipe again, and this time either use the extra heavy cream (as one reviewer mentioned) or else add"

This was an interesting recipe. I had never used celery root before, so picked a small one and used three apples. After julienning both, I mixed them with a little apple cider. After letting it sit, I then mixed in mayonnaise with some horseradish, and then added freshly chopped parsley. I didn't use the mushrooms. I added some salt and pepper...

Wonderful recipe! I made this last night along with Claire's stuffed pork chops, and what a combo! I really enjoyed the mix of squash and apples together. The only thing I would change is the amount of water one adds--I put in a cup of water, as the recipe suggested, and I still had to pour out some liquid before I served the dish. Next time I...

Apr 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these pork chops last night and really enjoyed them! I used dried cherries and some walnuts, along with the goat cheese, and the flavor was excellent. I also could not find lemon olive oil in my area, so I added some lemon juice to good olive oil and the flavor was fine. I will make these again!"

Apr 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these tonight and they were tasty. The peaches never really became too soft. I baked them in my small convection oven and the liquor flamed after about one minute in the oven! I didn't expect that. I served these peaches with some marscapone cream mixed with amaretto and it was a nice combination."

What a yummy recipe! I love this orange and chocolate combo! I used greased and floured muffin tins and everything turned out fine. I added Grand Marnier to the OJ and sugar mixture, and also added a bit of Grand Marnier to the chocolate, and I really liked the added depth of flavor. These cakes stand on their own WITHOUT the syrup and the chocolate,...

Wow! This recipe is terrific!!!! Giada is so right--it is the smoky mozzarella that makes the taste go over the top! I read the reviews and watched the amount of salt I put in--kept tasting every time I had to add salt and it was fine. The dish is a bit expensive to make, so I substituted thick bacon (good quality) for the prosciutto. I also...

This soup rocks! I made this tonight and enjoyed every bite! It was the best chicken soup I've ever had. The only thing I would do differently is use less of the red pepper, as it was a bit too "hot spicy" for me. I loved the lemony and the cinnamon taste, though! I will certainly make this again. Thanks, Anne--you have great recipes and make...

This recipe rocks! I made it last night and it was really good, but I let it marinate overnight and today the flavors are wonderful!

This recipe is wonderful! Fantastic! Easy to prepare! Full of flavor! This has become one of my most favorite foods and I love it! I use ribeye and it is very tender. It is worth finding the Korean hot pepper paste for the flavor. I don't like really hot sauces, so the woman in the Korean food store recommended a milder Korean hot pepper paste...
