Reviewed Beer-Braised Chuck Roast and Onions

Apr 8, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this twice and I love it. It's simple, straight forward and really delicious. Not a lot of steps or ingredients. I like to cook but I don't always want to make dinner a production. This is my 'go to' chuck roast recipe. The onions and stout make it really flavorful. I used Guinness both times; the first time was because I could buy one ...

Reviewed Simple Basmati Rice

This was simple and the rice turned our perfectly. The best and easiest way I've seen to cook plain Basmati rice. It turned out better than following the directions on the rice package.""

Reviewed Herb Roasted Turkey Breast with Pan Gravy

Nov 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this a few times and I love it. When you don't want to do a whole turkey, this is the way to go. The herbs add tremendous flavor. I don't make the gravy because it seemed on the sweet side and some reviewers noted this. But adding the pan drippings to dressing and/or to your own gravy adds incredible flavor.""

This was very good. I was surprised that such a simple cabbage dish would be so good. I'm used to smelly overcooked cabbage but this wasn't anything like that. Definitely a keeper.""

This turned out really well. I make dal all the time usually using a packaged masala dal spice blend but my grocery store hasn't been carrying it lately. I also have a recipe from Whole Foods that I use but it just wasn't as good as I knew dal could be so I went looking for another version and found Aarti's. I'm really glad I came across this ...

Reviewed Roasted Salmon with Green Herbs

Sep 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very tasty and super easy. I added tarragon because I had some on hand and I was a bit low on parsley. I would make this again and I recommend it to anyone uncertain about cooking fish. This one is hard to mess up. I bought my fish at the grocery store and had to remove my own skin. That was a bit of a pain, but it did give me a chan...

Reviewed Cast Iron Skillet Corn Bread

Aug 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Excellent Southern-style cornbread that wasn't too sweet. I much prefer my cornbread made with coarse cornbread and this was perfect. Too many recipes make a sweet, almost cake-like cornbread. This mostly cornmeal-based recipe is the style that I grew up eating. It would be great for making cornbread dressing.""
