Reviewed Roast Rib of Beef with Port and Stilton Gravy

Dec 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is really good, really easy, and a fantastic way to have a blowout dinner! The gravy is so different, but just bursting with flavors, and it compliments the savory beef really well! There was not a drop of it left when I served this. If you didn't want to do a standing rib, this can be easily adapted to a samller more everyday roast. The seas"

There is just no way this can be bad! The base is graham crackers, butter, and chocolate. The filling is coffee ice cream, and the top is a divine, bourbon laced butterscotch sauce! It is absolutely killer. Its ease of assembly and long feezer life make it a great thing to do ahaead and just whip out whenever you need a dazzling dessert!

There is nothing quite like the pride of bringing a perfect tray of roast potatoes to the table. I highly reccomend buying a copy of "Nigella Christmas", it is truly t"

This cake is luscious, moist, tender, and delicious! I don't understand the reviews that claim this to be dry. True, I have never had much luck making cakes in a food processor. However, Nigella has given instructions on doing it the "regular way", which has always worked for me. Also, my oven cooks REALLY hot, so I have to take about 10 minutes ...

Aug 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were fantastic dinner time treats! They went together fast and were tender, and full of flavor. I have seen a lot of comments on the sauce being to thin. The brand of tomatos you use can make a big difference, as some can be very watery and do not need extra water. Also, it helps if you avoid a non stick pan, they tend not to reduce sauces ...

This was a run away family favorite! The sauce is sweet, smoky,and sticky, and, the chicken turns out tender and flavorful. I served this with some sushi rice as well as some steamed sugar snaps and snow peas. It is just as good, if not better, than teriyaki you can get at restaraunts. Some reviewers mentioned having trouble reducing the sauce. Th"

This is absolutely stunning! It is amazing to be able to cook something so elegant in so little time. The sauce is out of this world (vermouth and cream....how could it not be?) This is perfect for a weeknight when you need a little lift!
The recipe calls for two chicken breast, but it makes a generous amount of sauce. If you used four chicken...

This is the best way to eat steak. This is easy to cook and really tasty to eat. The preparation is simple, but the results are very flavorful and mouthwatering. Really, how can rare steak with garlic, lemon and thyme be bad? The answer: it can't! Please try this!"

You can't get better than this. Three ingrideints and the oven does all the work. The results are mindblowingly good. The "sauce" it makes is smoky and rich and tastes very complex. Every time I make this everyone claims it as their favorite chicken dish ever. I love to make this with the Potato and Mushroom Gratin from "Nigella Exress". This is one...

I can't tell you how fantastic this is! The almond meal and polenta give this a texture unlike anything else. It is a very winning combination or rich and buttery as well as sweet and sharp.

This is one of the best and most popular desserts I have made. It works like a charm and tastes like a dream. The texture is very light and creamy and is perfect after a spicy main course. Just be sure you give it at least 4 hours in the fridge...though overnight is really ideal. A definite winner!
