Reviewed Country Style Steak

Apr 30, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Simple and tasty. I love the fact that I can brown and braise in a single pan, and the gravy came together beautifully for me. I used some sprigs of fresh thyme instead of dried, which gave it a great flavor and was easy to fish the springs out before service. My toddlers and teen loved the steak, and my husband said it was the most tender cube"

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I didn't have fish stock, so I subbed the fish broth from the Fresh & Easy Seafood Mix (since I used the package for the seafood, anyway) plus chicken stock for the remaining liquid. The broth came together very quickly, and I was able to make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge until I was ready to put ...

Dec 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a very simple recipe that packs a heck of a punch with flavor. I could eat a shoe covered in that sauce, which I practically did, because my strip steaks had been sitting in the freezer for a few months. My toddlers - who normally dislike steak - asked for seconds, and my husband pronounced this "a keeper". Even my freezer-burned steak...

This is a great sugar cookie! The flavor isn't too sweet, buttery and reminiscent of my ex-mother-in-law's cookies - a Christmas favorite of mine - and the sugar cookie dough sold by Fresh & Easy - great but pre-formed, so rolling out for shapes created tough cookies. This was very easy to put together, took a bit of work to roll out but was easy...

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

I wasn't expecting much from this dish, since it seemed very simple; honestly, I was looking for a dish using sage, which I have growing abundantly in my garden. I fell in love at first bite - this is a dish that really delivers the flavor! I let the shrimp "marinate" in their sage/pancetta wrappers for an hour or so before pan-frying, and I pu...

Reviewed Chicken Scallopine with Sage and Fontina Cheese

Sep 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Incredibly easy to make and super tasty. I love the fact that I get to make use of the fresh sage that is growing in my planter box. If spice is a concern, I would start with a little chili flake and work up from there. Otherwise, it's a very forgiving recipe - red wine works as well as white (and I use Two Buck Chuck without a hitch, provolon...

For the pie crust recipe alone, this recipe is a five-star wonder. I always considered pie crust to be something "special", heavy on the technique and not for the faint of heart to attempt. Oh, how wrong I was - one cheap food processor and a dollar's worth of ingredients, and even I can turn out a crust that is perfectly flakey and delicious."

What a lovely dressing - it has a rich flavor and it's quick to make, since I always keep the ingredients in my pantry. I prefer to make dressing fresh if I can, so this recipe is definitely going into my recipe box.
