Did not like this meatloaf. Just seemed like it was missing something.

Pretty good. Kids love it. Can be a little greasy

Aug 28, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Just ok. I added mushrooms. I could not bring myself to add that much butter so I did not have much sauce at all. I kept adding worchestshire sauce, but the meat just soaked it up. My husband added brown gravy to make his juicier.

Delicious!! My gravy never thickened, but it was still good. I added baby bellas to my gravy also.

Reviewed chicken florentine burgers

Jul 16, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

These were really good. Father-in-law said best burger ever (and he is a turkey burger fanatic). Used grated jack and topped with carmelized onions and mushrooms. Used toasted potato buns. Recipe is a keeper.

Reviewed white bean and chicken chili

Jul 16, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Very good. I omitted the swiss chard and used canned corn that I just added in at the end. I upped the seasonings to get rid of the blandness. Also used garbanzo beans b/c that was what I had and they worked great.

Reviewed fluffy sweet-potato biscuits

Jul 15, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Very good. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar and added a drop of vanilla. Had to cook them about 20 minutes so the middle would get done. I served them with honey butter.

Reviewed ginger wings with peanut dipping sauce

Jun 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

The wings were just ok. Husband liked them but I thought they didn't have enough flavor. I omitted the sesame seeds, maybe they would have made a difference. I would try this receipe again and maybe leave out some of the marinade to use later to brush on the wings as they are cooking.

Reviewed pad thai

Jun 12, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! Pretty easy dish. I added thinly sliced beef, sliced onions, and sliced mushrooms. Sauteed everything individually. Tasted just like dish from restaurant. Husband loved it, but he wanted more sauce so next time I will double sauce.

Replied to thai iced tea

She sure did

Reviewed chicken jambalaya

May 20, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Pretty tasty. I omitted the cayenne and only used a dash of cajun seasoning b/c I don't like spicy. I used brown rice and a 10oz can of rotel tomatoes. The rotel and black pepper added enough heat for me. Next time I will add sausage.

Reviewed stove top roasted pears with dulce de leche

Apr 1, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Pretty good. It took my pears a long time so soften up. Didn't feel like making the dulce de leche from scratch so I boiled a can of sweetened condensed milk until it turned golden brown.

Reviewed pizza di spaghetti

Mar 17, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Very good dish. Trying to think of something different to do with plain spaghetti. It crusted nicely and slid right out of the pan. I added pepperoni to the mixture. Ate it with a little melted cheese on top.

Reviewed veggie burger

Mar 13, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Pretty good for a veggie burger. Wanted to try fresh versus frozen patty. I made a few changes based on other reviews. I used canned mushrooms instead of fresh. I omitted the cayenne and carrot. I subbed oats for the bread crumbs. Also used a few teaspoons of canned spinach b/c that's what I had. The mixture was kind of loose so I put half in...

Reviewed prosciutto-wrapped beef cubes with mustard pan sauce

Feb 19, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Very good. Used bacon instead of prosciutto. I seared it a little then finished them in a 350 oven because i wanted crisp bacon. The sauce was great with them.

Reviewed baked ham with brown sugar mustard glaze

Jan 26, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! I used glaze on a spiral ham, but omitted the cloves. The mustard gave a little more tang than I wanted so next time will just use less.

Reviewed Chicken Dumpling Soup Recipe : Bobby Flay : Food Network

Jan 26, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious dumplings! I used another recipe for the soup, but I knew I wanted a "drop" dumpling instead of the rollout kind. So easy and quick! I omitted the nutmeg and only used 2 eggs. I added a little black pepper and dried parsley to the batter and it turned out great! This will be my go to dumpling recipe.

Reviewed Dirty Risotto

Nov 9, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Tasted pretty good. Used mild italian sausage instead of spicy. Also used long grain rice b/c its all I had. I just put a top on for a few minutes to help rice absorb stock better.

Reviewed Baked Fudge

Aug 8, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very good dish. Quick and simple to make. I watched the episode and saw where she used heaping tbsps of cocoa and flour. I used a little extra flour b/c it seemed more runny than in the episode. My kids LOVED it. I only gave it 4 stars b/c I am not a fan of the "pudding like" texture inside. Still, I will be making this again for them."

Reviewed Pork Chops with Apples and Pancetta

Jul 2, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! Not what I expected, but still good. I didn't have brandy so I subbed more apple juice. Also used dried rosemary instead of thyme. I started cooking the onions with the chops b/c I wanted a little color on them. The chops were soooo tender. I cooked them in the sauce with the top on b/c I wasn't sure if the chops would finish cook"

Reviewed Chicken Spaghetti

Jun 27, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very good dish. I cut the recipe in half and it was still a pretty big dish. I omitted the green and red peppers b/c I didn't have them. I used cream of chicken. I also sauted the onion with a half can of mushrooms. My husband requested I "keep this in rotation"."

Reviewed Pecan Pie

Jun 24, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was...different. I used chopped pecans for filling and top and 2 cups is waaaay too many. Next time maybe I will use 1 cup for entire pie and the filling will show through more. Was better after it sat in the fridge for a couple of days. Had the texture of pecan squares. Not as sweet as karo syrup pies which can be good or bad, depending"
