Replied to braised beef brisket

Jan 4, 2015 on FoodNetwork.com

Though you're right about Ree Melissa, if a recipe is good who cares where it comes from right? I tried a Giada beef roast recipe that came out horrible, and I'm a good Italian cook! I won't make any of her recipes anymore. You just have to weed out the good recipes that you like. :) Ree's got some good ones, and I laugh at her Italian tries but...

Thank you. I don't like a lot of salt or salty flavor in my cooking.

You can always buy 'nips' at the liquor store for a couple of bucks. Those little size bottles they serve on the airplanes? I always buy them when I don't usually stock a liquor and I only need a few tablespoons for a recipe.

I had a 4 lb roast and it was done in 2 hours and was dried out. IDK maybe it was a bad cut. I was very disappointed

I made a grass fed roast from whole foods and it was expensive. Mine turned out like shoe leather as well. I won't make this recipe again

I've made pot roasts and this recipe did not work. I didn't like the gravy, too salty and the meat came out tasteless.

Unless they changed the recipe, there's no glass pan used so I don't know why you used a glass pan when it says to use a regular pan or a broiler pan?

Never use cooking wine! Use a wine you would drink. I like Cavit :Pinot Noir. Cooking wine has a cheap taste to it and it's very salty

Replied to riggies with roasted vegetable and ricotta sauce

May 26, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I wonder if you cut the ricotta to 1/2 cup instead of a cup, and increase the eggplant and roasted peppers, Or add zucchini maybe that would make a difference? I'd like this recipe because I don't like biting into onions..not a fan.

No Italian (like me) would use eggs, breakfast sausage, pepperoni and cottage cheese in Lasagna! She could save a lot of money leaving those things out of the recipe and add more ricotta and use more cheeses.. I like her recipes but she should get Italian ones from Italians. :)

Very good! I used leeks and onions in mine. I just like the taste of leeks in split pea soup. I also made my own curry powder because I find the store bought too hot for me (comes with age)

I would never add bacon to curried recipes. Sounds very strange.

Agree with other reviewers. WAY too thin. I agree with the reviewer to use 4 cups stock and 3 cans of black beans. It also seemed lacking something.

It's Missing Something...I agree with other reviews. It's too dry, it's not flavorful enough. I used ghee to cook with for more flavor, and heavy cream at the end and it still tastes bland. I added more salt too..

Paneer cheese is not salty. It's a very sweet milk cheese..It is really an important part of this dish. Tofu doesn't do it justice.

You can find paneer cheese in any Indian grocery store, or you can make it yourself. Very easy. On Indian cooking websites they have the recipe.

Good rum cake recipe. I would have liked it to be a little bit more wet with glaze. It seemed just a little dry. Being Italian and used to rum pastries :) I would double the glaze recipe, but cut back a 1/4 to a 1/2 cup of sugar because the cake is already very sweet.

I made this for Christmas dinner. My problem with this recipe was that the recipe is different from how Rachel did it on TV. She put the spinach, ricotta and cheeses separately. The recipe says to mix all of them together with egg yolks and layer that with the sauce. I don't recall egg yolks on the show. The other problem was that it also said to...

Pretty good. I used 3 corn muffins instead of the cran/orange because I don't like orange anything and I added coarsely chopped chestnuts. The stuffing was a hit, the cutlets were ok. The store brand I bought were too thin so they were a little dry. I had a little trouble with the gravy, getting thick but maybe because I used broth instead of stoc"
