Feeds an army! Perfect if you're having a large group of kids over for birthday party or such event. I fed a party of 5 hungry folks with garlic bread and salad as only sides and there was WAY to many left overs. Felt like I was eating this for weeks on end to get rid of it. I made a note to 1/2 the recipe the next time I make it for my family.

Reviewed best tomato soup ever

Oct 31, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Smooth flavor and great texture. Served it to my non-tomato soup loving kids and they choked down a bowl, but didn't want any more. I froze the remainder and pull them out of the freezer as needed when I want soup for me for lunch or dinner. Thaws well and tastes the same as the first day I made it.

Make the dressing and use it on salads or anything you need Italian flavor.

Perfect snack for lunch boxes or after school and they last for a month or more in the fridge. When my kids have the munchies, I pull these out of the fridge. I made them without cranberries and added some wheat germ or wheat bran.

Replied to homemade cannoli

I found cannoli shells at my local grocery store in the same aisle as the pasta. The package of six shells cost about $4. I'm not sure it's something the "big box" grocery stores will stock.

Reviewed Green Beans with Cheese Sauce

Fabulous retro recipe. If you serve on the side it gets too thick to pour. I recommend stirring the sauce into the hot beans instead. I made this recipe without the garlic, mustard and cayenne. Oops I forgot. I'm so used to the kids liking everything bland. I'll add the spices next time and see if they like it better.

DO NOT ADD SALT. And substitute half of Pecorino Romano with Parmesan cheese. It seems to be a conspiracy of famous chefs who think there's not enough salt in everything?! If you use the salt and pecorino as the recipe is written, you won't taste the other ingredients like the sausage and cheese at all. Otherwise this recipe is a melt in your mouth...

Nov 17, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This was difficult to get brown and crispy like Ree's. I put the stovetop on medium high but I guess the oil wasn't hot enough. I left on each side for five min each side and only got a mellow golden color. The flavor was spot on. Combining the buttermilk with the flour gives the boneless chicken the flavor reminiscent of great fried chicken on...

This recipe is perfect for the hot summer days. The recipe is easy, as my 12 year old did much of the work. Be sure to leave in freezer for the full time listed. My family thought the flavor was too sour and they didn't even have any zest in their servings. So next time around I may add more sugar or less lemon juice to tone down the lemon a b"

Good savory dish for pot luck or bake sale as she said in the show. I took them to a Halloween party over the weekend. Mine turned out a bit dark so next time I need to use less egg wash and also I may take the temp down to 350 to compensate for dark seasoned pan that I used. I baked them at less than 30min - more around 25 min. The taste was...

Reviewed Salmon with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glaze

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

The salmon was delicious and very easy! I only had one portion of salmon for myself and the glaze was very easy to break down to one serving size. All the ingredients were already in my pantry so when I found this recipe as the grill was warming up I knew I was in luck. I made this tonight since temps were perfect for grilling. It is in the 80s...
