Reviewed spicy lemon garlic shrimp

4 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

I had high hopes for this recipe as I love garlic shrimp. I don't enjoy giving a bad review but I do need to be honest with my opinion of the finished dish. I found this to be just ehh. Not much flavor to it. I probably enjoyed sopping up the juice with bread more than the shrimp itself and really that isn't saying much; that was ehh as well. It saddens...

Easy Breezy to make; use very good chocolate morsels they are excellent. I used a semi-sweet dark chocolate with whole unsalted peanuts, and yellow raisins. Reminds me of my old favorite candy bar "Chunky's". Think i'll try adding dried cranberries as well next time. My company loved them so much they asked to take all of the leftover one's home.

I always use chicken thighs because they are moist unlike chicken breast whenever you cook them. I wanted to give this recipe a whirl for a healthier version of fried chicken seeing how crunchy it was when Paula Dean bit into it on the show.
I let the chicken soak in the buttermilk mixture without lemon in the refrigeraror for 3 hours,...

Another winner meal. I did not have peppers, or potatoes on hand so left them out; also used a can of low sodium diced tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes, and fresh parsley. I added cooked pasta into my soup bowl before serving. The flavor was great; reminds me of beef-a-roni when I was a kid. Thanks for sharing your recipes Ree!

This was very good but the breadcrumb, Parmesan mixture was still very loose. Next time I will combine with a little melted butter before stuffing it in tomatoes. I only baked the tomatoes for 10 minutes; they were done perfectly.

Eating this right now and it is Crazy Good. I do have to admit that I used the recipe from Ree's website after a reviewer said "she made her own white sauce" instead of using the canned "cream of mushroom soup one. I prefer to control my sodium intake so left out the "olives" from this recipe as well. It came out very rich and delicious. The dry white...

I love rice pilaf. To be able to make my own has me excited. I cut the recipe in half for 2 people and WoW, the flavor! It reminded me of the taste of fried rice (another favorite) even though there isn't any soy sauce in it; Might be because mine came out more toasted then kelsey's image above. I love it! I'm going to add scrambled egg and small...

WoW this was really very good! Will not buy packaged stuff ever again. I only added 1/2 tsp. of salt to the meat. And 1-2 tsp. of mixed #9 potion. Taste as you add it with the broth to reach desired flavor would be best.

She did say that they would not be fully cooked and would finish cooking in the sauce. You obviously like your sausages a certain way period and never want to try something different. Well BOO and a big FAIL for you for not going outside your box. You obviously think you're better than a professional so go do your own thang missy.
