Reviewed Extra-Creamy Scalloped Potatoes

Sep 8, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

New favorite way to make scalloped potatoes. 4 stars because will need to give it some more flavor next time (butter? Thyme?) although I was out of bay leaves & that may have made a nice difference."

I made this without the eggs. Nice to have another way to serve asparagus. Next time I will steam the asparagus instead if boiling, and I think a poa he'd egg would be great on top!"

Everyone loved this. Deliciously different with the chewy apricots & crunchy pecans & celery. Had it with a bowl of soup on a blustery day."

Mar 3, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I used vegetable stock instead of beef, did not use the pancetta, and traded spinach for the swiss chard. This was YUMMY!!! If anyone is interested, 6 servings = 98.8 calories per serving when made my way. This will be a regular at my house."

Jan 20, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These are a moist, delectable favorite! I never count the little bit of sugar on the crystalized ginger and I eat one without the frosting so I can have a sugar free cupcake! "

My son made all the recipes from this episode for a school project and the granola is a new favorite! I put 2 tbsp on my yogurt every day and he has to make me a new batch whenever I run out! Crunchy, flavorful, and hits the spot!"

Absolutely delicious! My son made every recipe from this episode for a school project and it was an amazing meal. Fresh and light and yummy!"

Reviewed Cabbage-Potato Soup

Dec 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Nice cozy soup for a cool rainy winter day. Very simple to make. I used a knife to cut the cabbage and onions, but the food processor for the potatoes and carrots. I didn't have any corn beef but crisped up 8 ounces of deli ham that I slivered. It was delicious and will appear regularly on our family menu."

Reviewed Braised Country-Style Pork Ribs

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

Family loved this and gave it 5 stars! I used boneless country style ribs as that is what was in the freezer but that was my only change. Would probably use more vegetables but the taste was rich and flavorful. Polenta was very creamy and not too overly savory. Nice Saturday supper."

Reviewed Baked Tilapia With Herb Butter

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

Tasty! A recipe you can do anything with - change the herb in the butter, change the veggies, anything you want. I served it over noodles and everyone liked it."

Warm and cozy and incredibly easy to throw together. Very low calorie, too, which makes it a great part of my lunch."

Oct 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very thick, sweet, tasty soup. Will definitely make again. I got 6 12-ounce bowls full with no leftovers. Served with a tablespoon of sour cream on each and a side of cornbread. VERY good!"

Reviewed Light Scalloped Potatoes With Roasted Chiles

Sep 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

YUM!! I was worried about cooking the potatoes until tender and then baking them for another 35 minutes but it was fine. A lot of the broth cooks out while the potatoes are getting tender and then the rest is absorbed into the potatoes while baking. This is not your usual creamy scalloped potato dish. Nice zip from the pepper, good flavor, wil"

Good cookie! Pull them out at 10 minutes even though they won't look done otherwise you will have a very crisp cookie. "

Full of fresh lemon flavor. A nice soft cookie perfect with a cup of tea."

Aug 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Huge hit at my house! Don't be expecting your usual creamy comforting potato salad that screams summer picnic. This is a bold, in your face flavor snapping potato dish. Delicious with grilled chicken."

Reviewed Rotisserie Chicken with Black Pepper Vinegar Sauce

Aug 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Yum! Have to admit I didn't make the sauce but brined my chicken pieces and used the brown sugar/paprika rub. Delicious chicken."

Reviewed Sweet and Spicy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Aug 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Love the carmelized onions in the grilled cheese and will do that often! My personal preference - the sandwich was a bit heavier than I was wanting but it definitely filled you up with a bowl of tomato soup. "

Reviewed Bacon and Tomato Pasta

Aug 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! Goes together super fast, super easy, and super delicious! Nice change from a traditional tomato sauce based dish. Red pepper flakes gave it a nice zip. This will be a regular on our menus."

One sip of this amazing milkshake had me whimpering as I melted into a delighted puddle on the floor! Oh ... my ... goodness!! I am so not a sweets person but this was the best milkshake I've ever had in my life, bar none. We needed this recipe to make 3 nice sized milkshakes. My son did not change the caramal recipe a single bit but did add mo"

Reviewed Grilled Fruit Salad with Honey-Yogurt Dressing

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

I only made the dressing to go with a different assortment of grilled fruits and it was yummy! I can imagine it with raw fruit salad, too. We had this with grilled hamburgers and I dabbed some of the dressing on side of tomatoes and quite enjoyed it that way, too. I used Oikos Greek yogurt and it was just a nice pleasant tang."

Reviewed Roasted Tomato Soup

Jun 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I enjoyed this! I think the end result is only going to be as good as the ingredients you put into it, though. For instance, mid-June in northeast Ohio is not the time for tomatoes. I used a mix of tomatoes but know it wasn't as tomato-y as it will be in a few months. I used my own homemade chicken stock which is made without salt which means a"

All I made were the beans (although I did follow Bobby's recipe for a Perfectly Grilled Steak for my strip steaks). These beans are now a family favorite and will be made regularly. Smokey taste and super easy to put together either on the grill or stovetop. I got nervous about the amount for 6 people and threw in another can of beans without a"

May 12, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I enjoyed this coleslaw a lot! Couldn't find the correct attachment to my food processor, so I thinly sliced the cabbage by hand which made a nice crunchy slaw. Family thinks the dressing wasn't as creamy as they were hoping but I thought it was perfect and am sure next time (with finely shredded cabbage) it will be more to their preference. Gre"

Beautiful dinner! I made 2 chickens to feed 6 of us. What an absolutely lovely presentation! Crispy, flavorful skin; moist, delicious meat; perfectly cooked baby yukon potatoes. This was my first experience making escarole and I have to say, it became a favorite vegetable with this method. Thanks, Chef! I will make this often."

Nice change to our usual coleslaw dressing. My husband didn't care for the raisins and I'll leave them out next time (and increase the onions) but we all liked the lemony dressing. Nice and creamy after sitting in the fridge 5 hours to chill."

Mar 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The taste of the lemon and parsely definitely shined through. For my family's preference, I kept the pasta at 1 pound, but 1 1/2 x'd the chicken and sauce. Not at all soupy and actually just right. With a salad or a dish of fruit, very nice supper in under 30 minutes. Mine was on the table in 20.""
