Reviewed Jerk Turkey Burgers with Mango Slaw

Feb 10, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

OMG! These are the best turkey burgers I have ever had, restaurant quality. The apple keeps the meat nice and moist and the slaw provides the perfect crunch and extra flavor. I used whole wheat buns that I toasted up nice before adding the slaw and the crunch from the bread and slaw with the juicy burger truly was amazing. A definite keeper!"

Feb 10, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I debated on giving this recipe four stars because I wouldn't get mine to come out crispy but the flavor of the fries and the avocado sauce were so unbelievable I had to give it five stars. Also, since some of the other reviewers commented they got their fries crispy, I'm wondering what I did wrong and plan to try again to achieve the crispiness t"

I have to laugh about the reviews saying you can't possibly fit 12 cups of tortilla chips in a 9 x 13 pan. I poured the 12 cups in the pan and crushed them down with my hands as the directions said and it ended up being a nice 1/2 inch crust on the bottom. Those who said it's impossible....not sure why that would be. I following the recipe EXACTLY"

I would give this ten stars if I could. I have made it twice now, once to try for my family, and a second time for a friend who had surgery. It is very time consuming yes, but if a recipe was ever worth the time it's this one. Since reviews said frying the tortillas was so time consuming I bought a pack of 18 taco shells and broke them in half to "

I have been making this recipe for years and decided to experiment and try and make a healthier version. I substituted splenda for the sugar in the crust and then used fat free sour cream and fat free sweetened condensed milk. Shockingly, it tasted NO DIFFERENT than the real thing. This is now a regular desert in my fridge to cure the sweet tooth...

Aug 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I always feel like I did something wrong when a recipe with so many five star ratings is such a disappointment. The recipe say cook for 20-25 min and I only cooked it for twenty and it was soooooo dry. It didn't appear overdone at all but I couldn't believe how dry this came out. All the other reviews commented on the moist butteryness so I may tr"

When I first read this recipe I was hesitant because I just figured it would be like a salad with balsamic dressing except with cooked vegetables. Something about this though was sooooo good. The asparagus got a crispy crust and the dressing provided a fun tang. Definitely will make again"

Reviewed Portobello Mushroom Lasagna

Jun 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

After reading some of the reviews, I decided to add some or more flavors to the dish. When I sauteed the mushrooms I added some garlic and fresh thyme. I felt the flavors really mended with the nutmeg and made the lasagna that much flavorfull. I also used regular salt instead of kosher and halfed the amount, the saltiness ended up PERFECT. The dis"

This stock is so simple yet delicious, vs some of the recipes that make you spend a fortune on an array of vegetables that just get thrown out in the end. I love Anne but I have to giggle at her analogy on this episode for the sweating vegetables, "Think about what you do when you sweat, you get hot, you let off water, and then you start to smell,...
