Made this for a small easter dinner (just my husband and a friend). Made mashed potatoes so only used 1 lb of the sprouts, 3 slices bacon cut in lardons, and 1 large shallot with lemon zest. Followed technique of sauteeing then roasting sprinkling with bacon and it was DELICIOUS! My husband ate half before we even started dinner and he and his...

I built on the glaze by substituting orange zest and juice for the marmalade and added grated garlic and red pepper flakes with herbs (an arrabiata spice blend) for kick. Great, would make with bonesless thighs next time as the breasts were pretty dry by the time they cooked through (mine were approx. 8 oz each). Added in chopped asparagus to sk...

This is soooo good. My husband came home from a business trip and he said they were the bests sloppy joes he's ever had. My changes: Used ground turkey, a small can tomato sauce, 3/4 can tomato paste, 2 chipotles in adobo with some of the sauce, 2 cloves garlic. There was no missing the beef. They were not greasy and held together on a wheat...

I am always a bit skeptical of Hungry Girl recipes, but was craving something sweet and saw this on TV today. I took light Cool Whip straight from the freezer, scooped some on a plate, sprinkled cinnamon on it, and tried it. YUM. I then cut up an apple and used that as a dip and ate the rest. Such a tasty light treat. The frozen Cool Whip tas...

This is great meatloaf - I am not supposed to eat red meat so this is a great alternative. It's just my husband and me, so I halve the recipe and sneak in a box of frozen chopped spinach and italian parsley for color. Perfect!""

Feb 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

this is one of the best salads - my whole group of friends loved it at a grill-out - especially those that had never had hearts of palm before! Definitely a keeper. Just add some leftover chicken for a main entree salad - better than at fancy restaurants!""

Finally, moist chicken breasts! This was delicious. Followed the recipe but added 2 lemon halves to the brine. Brined for just an hour and it was perfect. Used the bringing liquid in the pot as the weight so I didn't have to dirty another pan - worked perfect. Next time, I will keep my burner closer to medium as my burners are quite hot and ...

Reviewed Sun-dried Tomato Dip

Feb 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I like to cut up the tomatoes and pulse in at the end so they are stlil a little chunky - otherwise it can look like salmon dip. everyone loves this - unique and a nice change from the typical hummus/salsa/ranch dips..""

I've made this a few times - in the episode he adds a can of chick peas so maybe that's what's missing in this recipe to help with the thickening""
