Reviewed Linguine with Avocado and Arugula Pesto

Oct 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Comme Ci, Comme Ca - an ok dish. Someone is right, the lime-juice is over-done. But nothing spectacular other-wise...""

The taste is definitely there. However, making this dish turned out to be time-consuming. Also, the crisped wonton pockets made it difficult and messy to eat. In the interest of time and ease of eating, I'd recommend using warmed up flour or corn tortillas.

Also I found the dish very filling eating just 2-3 of these.""

Fish Broth with Radicchio is something I have never seen paired before. My very honest review for the dish as-is (no substitutions) is that it is pretty weird. Hard to imagine that this has an acquired taste, but the 'only' thing in the dish that worked for me is the vinaigrette.

Is this really an Italian dish? Fish Broth with Radicchio is something I have never seen paired before. My very honest review for the dish as-is (no substitutions is that it is pretty weird. I cannot even say if it is an acquired taste, but the 'only' thing in the dish that worked for me is the vinaigrette.

Butter and Sage is a heavenly combination for the ravioli - what a refined idea!""

Reviewed Tilapia with Citrus Bagna Cauda

Citrus with Anchovies might be an acquired taste. The combination did not work for me either.
Acidity from orange juice didn't seem to suffice either, and so I went ahead and added some lemon juice too.
I will not be making this again."

Reviewed Tilapia with Purple Potato Crust and Chive Rosemary Oil

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

Very tasty and a classy dish at that with all the herbs. But way too much oil as several have mentioned.
To make a healthier version, I'd skip the potatoes, and use just the herbs instead of the herb-oil, after drizzling the fish with the olive oil, salt and pepper."

So quick to put together for a weekday dinner, and the taste doesn't disappoint. Any fat free European style yogurt could work for this recipe."

Reviewed Panini with Chocolate and Brie

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

Pretty innovative and am sure will be a sure hit with many. For me, it was just good because the strong brie flavor did not complement the chocolate a 100%."

Very Yummy! I recently bought a bottle of prosecco, and was looking for a recipe that didn't take much preparation.
Must try, and yes, Prosecco is a really great substitute for Champagne."

Reviewed Chicken Fajita Tortilla Soup

Tried this a few days ago with all ingredients just as listed. The soup was pretty filling, but the taste was just alright. I have an ethnic palate, perhaps it's just me, but I didn't get that punch in flavors I was looking for. It just felt like one big bunch of ingredients thrown into the pot and simmered together with flavors not in proportion."

Agree with one of the reviewers below. The dish was alright, just not stellar. But the ingredients are expensive enough, so won't be trying this again. "
