Reviewed Roman-Style Chicken

Jan 14, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This was an acceptable but un-wowish recipe. I used zesty diced tomatoes and only had chicken breast but very disappointed overall. Like many reviews, when I saw the rave reviews I felt it was worth a try. It tastes like you would expect - chicken in stewed tomatoes with some peppers. The capers add a nice salty surprise but the prosciutto was...

Reviewed Arugula Salad with Pears and Gorgonzola

Dec 8, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this for a holiday party last night and everyone loved it. Excellent winter salad. I needed more than the 2Tbs of pear juice to get a flavor I liked so I recommend keeping all the juice so you have more available if needed. Also, this seems better if served on a large flat platter rather than a deep salad bowel.

This was a great recipe and it is as easy as it states. The spinach mix is so tasty and would be great as a spread on crackers or toasted baguettes or even in chicken breast. I also chose to sear it stovetop then moved it to the oven for 12 - 15 minutes at 400. The sauce is good although I added a dollop of honey to cut some of the tang and a f"

Sep 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a huge disappointment. The fish is rather blah. I followed other's suggestions that not as much crumbs were needed (I used 1/2) and still had extra. It is just not very tasty. The peas are ok but not what I expected for as much as she raved about them. My husband, who didn't spend any time cooking them or listening to all the hype th"

We loved these although we found the lime a bit too much so we cut it to 1 cup. We've made these 4 times now and enjoyed the second batch with a neighbor, who in turn, shared their next batch with a neighbor and so it goes. I shared the recipe (before I ever made it with some gals at work. We all made it the same weekend and they didn't really "

Reviewed Buffalo Chicken Appetizer with Cucumber Ranch Dressing

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

Very disappointing. I guess I shouldn't be surprised when the chicken recipe was chicken and hot sauce. The ranch dressing was a lot of effort and expense for poor flavor. I didn't have a desire to make a gallon of sauce so I attempted to 1/3 the recipe but the measurements are awkward to adjust (a pound of pineapple, a pint of honey - most of "

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

I really only want to give it a 2.5 star rating but since that isn't possible, I'll round up. I read the reviews and thought I had compensated for the soggy factor but apparently not enough. I doubled the bread - used a whole loaf of sourdough and even came close to tripling the baking time and yet still had soggy areas. I did take one suggesti"

I watched this episode at the gym and couldn't wait to try it. It must be a "guy thing". My husband was crazy over it. I enjoyed it and feel it is worth repeating - not difficult, not exotic ingredients and reasonably quick. The kids, who are 8 and 10, thought it was a bit too spicy for them but I expected that and even though they took lots ...
