The lemony whipped cream combined with the berries gives this a great summery flavor. I had to make one adjustment: I added a little water to the corn starch mixture before simmering, because the small amount of lemon juice I had just wasn't enough.

Also, when I make this again, I'll add the raspberries in the last 30 seconds so...

Reviewed The Ultimate Lasagna

Feb 23, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

What makes this the "ultimate" lasagna, the fact that it makes twice as much as you need? Seriously, its a very basic lasagna recipe, and there's no way all this would fit in even the deepest 13" x 9" pan. The sauce was good; I simmered everything in a pot and then pureed it with an immersion blender. "

If you make this, I suggest that, when you add the oven-roasted tomatoes, you omit the liquid from the baking sheet, avoiding an oily aftertaste that's not very appealing. "

I burned my onions, too, and I would not recommend this recipe. It's completely pedestrian with nothing interesting, unusual or especially flavorful about it. ""

Sorry, I'd never recommend this recipe to anyone. The topping is overly sweet and cloying. The sweet potato mixture is just usual. ""

This has a delightful flavor and the raisins actually add a lot. If you are considering making this recipe, though, be aware of two things: 1. The cabbage won't thoroughly cook in the oven, even for an hour. Simmer the cabbage for about 10 minutes before stuffing the leaves; and 2. Believe it or not, the rice won't cook either. I assumed it would...

I really liked this, but had to make more sauce than the recipe called for. Four minutes in the pan allows the pasta to absorb a lot of the sauce. I also added peas and some grated nutmeg; I didn't find the recipe bland. ""

Reviewed Chicken Divan Egg Noodle Casserole

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

It's a good idea, adding the egg yolks to the bechamel for richness, but as everyone else said, the sauce needs to be doubled. I liked adding two cheeses to the panko; that made a great topping (I used Gouda. Otherwise, though, the effect is the about the same as an everyday chicken-and-broccoli casserole made with condensed soup. And there's rea...
