Reviewed Slow-Roasted Beets with Blue Cheese, Watercress and Toasted Walnuts

Jul 7, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I love beets and had to try the recipe. Roasting the beets in a thyme & garlic liquid was a tasty way of preparing the vegetable. However, by the time I prepared the dressing and tossed all the ingredients together, the final presentation didn't have the taste I was expecting. My husband didn't like it and stopped eating his salad. I ate the b"

Reviewed Orange Sweet Rolls

Mar 9, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I just tried this recipe and I am disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly. My dough was very soft and unmanageable. It created an overflow of filling off the dough as I rolled it. A pan size was never specified, so I used a 9 x 14. It was a mess to cut into slices and there was no resemblance of rolls as they baked together - looking like "

I was very disappointment in the recipe. It is more cake like than a cobbler. Dry and too sweet tasting for our taste. Had to throw it out. Wasted a can of good peaches."

Reviewed Corn and Poblano Lasagna 2

Jan 16, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I had to try this recipe and we loved it. The second time around, I added 1/2 cup of milk to the heavy cream and a little more onion. Instead of 1 zucchini, I added 2 more. Now it was lighter with a tad more sauce and could taste the layared zucchini. It is delicious, different, and so happy to have it in my file."

Reviewed Eggplant Parmigiana

Jul 4, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I was impressed with all the reviews for Eggplant Parmigiana and tried it yesterday. As I assembled all the ingredients, I discovered the 9x13 pan wasn't big enough and there was barely enough room when I poured the last of the tomato sauce on the top. My disappointment was when I sliced it and all the stacked layers fell sideways. Also there was"

Reviewed Cream of Asparagus Soup

Jan 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This soup is elegant enough for a formal dinner. It is easy to make and absolutely delicious.
My husband couldn't imagine a soup with asparagus and lots of sour cream would be so good, but after a spoonful, he beamed with a great smile. It is now his favorite soup and mine.""

Dec 29, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I was intrigued to try this pasta recipe because of the added ingredient of vodka. I was pleasantly surprised to find the taste of alcohol absent from the dish. The pasta is looks colorfully appetizing in a bowl. The taste is creamy and delicious, and quite simple to prepare. It charmed my guests and I was passing out the recipe.""

Reviewed Warm Chewy Macadamia White Chocolate Cookies

Dec 26, 2011 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

These cookies are delicious! I followed the recipe as it was written, but when I baked the cookies for 18 min. they were overcooked and burnt. I threw out the first batch and reset the timer for 8 min. They were just starting to turn a very light brown when I removed them out of the oven, and let them sit for another 3 min.on the sheet. Maybe ...

Reviewed Shepherd's Pie with Mushroom Onion Gravy

Nov 9, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Followed this recipe exactly and was very disappointed. This recipe is a 3 step process and it takes some time to put it all together. I have had better tasting sheperd's pie and only tried it because of the high reviews this recipe received. My husband and I didn't like the wine gravy and will not make it again.

Reviewed Easy BBQ Short Ribs

Oct 30, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

Some recipes on the network just don't turn for one reason or another. This recipe surprised us. The short ribs were delicious, tender and so easy to make. All my husband could say was "WOW" make this all the time. It is now his favorite and mine as well. Next time I will serve it over mashed potatoes but will double the sauce recipe. From now on...
