Absolutely wonderful. Only recipe I will use from now on. However, I made one change. I think the written instructions were incorrect regarding cooking the onions and celery. I highly suggest that you add the half stick of butter to the pan, and the onions and celery and cook them until they're soft. Then add the flour and cook for 3-4 minute"

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this pretty much per the recipe except I only had 2 cups of cream so I added them with 2 cups of whole milk. Had it with a rib roast for Christmas dinner. This was easy--and oh yeah I used red potatoes and didn't peal them so that really made it go fast. I found it to be somewhat bland. I thought it was strange to only put the cheese o"

Delicious! Even though I love cilantro, I tasted the marinade before I put it on the chicken and thought it was too much. But when these were done and put all together they were the best fajita's I've ever had. Incredible. I skipped the potatoes and used 3 peppers and 3 onions, which was necessary."

Awesome chops & gravy!! After I fried the chops I sauteed a large sliced onion and then followed the recipe as directed. This is going to my rotation."

Delicious--I made them twice in one week and these will go in my rotation. The change I made, which I recommend, was slicing two big onions and placing half under the chops, and the other over the chops and putting the bbq sauce over them & the chops. The second time I made these, I added even more onions as everyone fought over them the first t"

Aug 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Fabulous! I didn't find skirt steak but found flank steak (which I think is very similar)--2 lbs. for 6.50/lb. and I cooked it all, which made for lots of delicious leftovers. The only other change I made was using smoked paprika, which is what I had on hand. Would definitely make this for company. This is a keeper."

Aug 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've been making this recipe since my low carb days...and it's awesome. I cut it differently though--slice the entire head close to 1/4 inch thick. You end up with lots of little bits, as well as tender larger pieces. These bits turn nicely brown and caramelized as the dish cooks. Also, you don't need 1/3 cup of oil. I can't stop eating this "

Excellent Teriyaki sauce! I agree with some others--make a double recipe of the sauce, marinating with half, and heat the other on the stove with about a teaspoon cornstarch and about 3 tablespoons of water to serve. Definitely sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds."

Excellent brine. I had bought a quart of "pickles" at the farmer's market, and a quart of jalapeno's too. So I made a couple jars of pickles with some jalapeno's in it. Also, several 1/2 pt. jars of sliced pickled jalapeno's. All turned out great. I'm going to be experimenting with other veggies as they come into season. I would also like to"

Jan 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was delicious! I only gave it 4 stars, though, because of the cooking method of sauteing things separately and then putting it all together isn't necessary. Years ago I made this a lot and my original recipe called for baking/roasting all of the ingredients together and it worked wonderfully. I did the same with this recipe and it turned...

Reviewed Tomato Pie

Jan 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was amazing! I used Roma tomatoes, drained them well and blotted dry--enough to make 2 layers. I used Parmesan instead of mozzarella, and sharp white cheddar. The tomatoes were succulent and perfectly seasoned by the green onions and fresh basil. The creamy, cheesy topping is a perfect complement. One of the best things I've ever eaten.""

I was going to make fried cabbage but wanted to do something different. I found this recipe and I was pleasantly surprised. So tasty and healthy. I added some cayenne pepper flakes and it was wonderful. I also used regular green cabbage as I didn't have nappa. I'll try nappa next time. I will definitely make this again.""

As much as I love lemon, I didn't care for so much of it in this caramel sauce. The lemon flavor overpowered the caramel flavor. It did turn out beautiful in color and perfect thickness."

This turned out so delicious! I like the idea of adding cilantro & jalapeno, but this was still absolutely yummy as is. I served it with homemade tortilla chips--so much better than the bagged variety.

Delicious. Rich & tasty. However--lots of fat in this recipe. I usually think of marinara sauce as low fat--almost free diet wise.

Reviewed Roasted Butternut Squash Soup and Curry Condiments

Nov 20, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I found this soup relatively unsatisfying and lacking flavor. Perhaps I needed to add more curry, though I used the 1/2 teaspoon plus a pinch. I never go through the trouble of trying to cube and peel a butternut squash--too hard and not necessary in my book. I take a whole squash and puncture it so it doesn't explode, and set in the oven on 350...
