Reviewed Chicken Florentine Style

May 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm sorry, but for some reason the taste of the souse didn't work for me. It wasn't bland, and I always adjust the seasonings while cooking, but something didn't sit right for me. (maybe personal thing)
The chicken was very moist (I used boneless, skinless tights). My family actually liked the taste, but they thought, there was too much ...

It's a tasty recipe. Especially, if you love combination of bell peppers &tomatoes.(which I do!) Since I've been cooking with peppers&tomatoes for years, I've either borrowed a few ideas from Giada's recipe or added a few from my own -I liked the results. I added more Bell Peppers, mushrooms, onions and tomato paste to thicken the souse a little ("

Sorry, I really like Sunny, but this roast didn't do anything for us. The flavors were nice, but the meat was not tender at all. I wish, I would've used dry herbs that I have, instead of buying a bunch of fresh ones. (not cheap. M.b I got the wrong meat or it needed to be marinated.
I salvaged the leftovers by sauteing them with onions,...

I rarely bake, but I liked the ingredients and had all of them at home. this was my first attempt to make muffins (yeah, I know, weird:). I also don't buy muffins in the stores, so I can't compare the taste. It was super easy to make. We liked them when they were still warm. (my kid's friend was super surprised that that was my first attempt ever)....

Mar 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Yam! I love stroganoff, but before was using stroganoff mix from the bag to add to meat. I pretty much followed the recipe. The only different thing I did - after cooking meat w/flour, pepper, etc - I put it the dutch oven, added a little of the broth and let it simmer, while I cut&cooked onion and mushrooms and mixed the rest of the broth w/cream...

Reviewed Roasted Broccoli with Cherry Tomatoes

Feb 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I loved it, so did my family. Tomatoes are a great addition. Next time I'll cook it for less than 18 min. My mistake. I left them in the oven to keep them warm and broccoli became a lit bit too soft. I also think, that cheese is optional, in case, you don't have some cheese in the fridge.
Thanks, Neelys!"

Re :slayerinokc
No, no lid. (you can check her video on youtube).If the chicken's skin browns too much before the chicken is ready (or if the veggies start to get burnt), you can reduce the temperature and cover it loosely w/foil.

This chicken is to die for! According to my son :"the juiciest and tastiest chicken he ever had". I've used to cook the whole chicken in the rotisserie machine, but this is so much better (and less to clean) + you get the veggies for a side dish:)
I've used 5 1/2 lb chicken, red potatoes, leeks (couldn't find fennel), red onions, red&green...
