This is a perfect side because it's absolutely delicious and very quick and easy to make. I always have trouble finding vegetable sides but this one has become a staple at our house.""

Reviewed Chicken in Mustard

Oct 6, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I am a long-time fan of Melissa and I have made many of her recipes but I think that Chicken in Mustard is one of her very best!! The flavor is amazingly rich and delicious. I really wanted to lick the plate to get every last bit of the sauce. I made the leek salad and the buttered noodles and they were the perfect accompaniments. If I could g...

Reviewed Perfect Basil Sauce

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

This sauce is SO delicious!! I used it on steak instead of burgers and it worked perfectly. It also makes an amazingly good salad dressing. I just love the fresh taste of the basil and the creamy texture from the mayonnaise. I'm sure I will be finding other uses for this sauce - next up grilled salmon.""

Reviewed Roasted Garlic Clove Chicken

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

This chicken is so delicious and so easy!! It's a perfect example of what I love about Melissa's recipes. I made sure that the pieces of chicken were completely dry and that the pan was really hot so I was able to get a beautiful golden brown saute. The garlic was the perfect accent. I will defintely be making this again.""

Reviewed Chicago Italian Beef (Pot Roast Style

Sep 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Amazing Italian beef!! I'm from Chicago and LOVE Italian beef but it's hard to find the real deal now that we've moved to Florida. My husband and I loved the Italian beef show and loved the sandwich even more. I cheated and used store-bought Giardinara but the sandwich was still incredibly delicious. I confess I was cheering for Susie - and I...

Reviewed Chicken Tagine

Aug 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe brings a new flavor twist to one of my menu staples - chicken thighs. I actually bought preserved lemons so that I could make this recipe right away instead of waiting to make my own lemon confit. I think the preserved lemons give the chicken its lively fresh flavor. I will definitely make this one again but in the future I will pla...

Aug 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe has amazing flavor! I followed the recipe exactly except that I made the pork in the slow cooker and shredded it on Sunday and then finished the pork and made the rice and pico de gallo on Monday. The combination of all the different parts is just extraordinay!! I was surprised how much the orange zest added to the rice and complim...

Reviewed Beef and Bechamel Lasagna

Mar 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The bechamel sauce in this recipe reminded me of the Greek dish moussaka, so I made the lasagna with ground lamb instead of ground beef. The cinnamon and nutmug went perfectly with the lamb. I see that several reviewers thought there was too much liquid. I didn't have that problem but that may be because I let the lasagna rest overnight in the...

Mar 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I had never cooked catfish when I saw Sandra make this recipe last week but it looked so good I decided I had to try it. I am SO glad I did because it was really, really delicious. I made a few changes to the recipe. I didn't have cracker crumbs so I used Panko. I used olive oil instead of canola oil and I used half the amount of hot sauce. My...

Reviewed Salade Nicoise

Jan 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I loved this recipe!!! We eat salade nicoise fairly often because I make it with leftover grilled tuna but I think this is the best salade nicoise recipe yet. It uses most of the same ingredients as my other recipes but what sets it apart is the dressing. The lemon juice and fresh thyme in the dressing give the salad an incredibly delicious fresh...

My husband and I loved this corn. The smoked paprika made it much more interesting than plain buttered corn. I have both the hot (picante smoked paprika and the sweet (dulce. For the corn I used the sweet and thought it was just right. As to the ongoing commentary on the accuracy of Melissa's prices: saving money is important but it's not my number...
