Reviewed Watermelon Salad with Mint Leaves

Aug 19, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

WOW! I did not think we would like this as much as we did - especially with all of that raw onion. My husband was not excited about this salad but ended up having 4 helpings. We are planning to make it again this week when my mother-in-law is in town."

Reviewed Chicken or Steak with Balsamic BBQ Sauce

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

Great flavor! I was worried about it ending up too vinagar-y but it wasn't at all! I used chicken and cut it up into strips to get more flavor in each bite. The sauce thickened nicely but had to simmer it for much longer than advised, more like 30 minutes. I also added a dollop of general taos sauce and some sirachi to spice it up. Served with sau"

Reviewed Chicken and Asparagus Crepes

Jan 14, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was not at all what I thought it would be. My husband really enjoyed it but then again, there's nothing he doesn't like. The asparagus was tasty but the crepe roll-ups were gross. Most fault goes to the pre-made crepes I purchased - they must be intended for desserts because they were sweetened and the taste did not go well with the savory me"

Jan 9, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

YUM! What a refreshing spin on chicken! Haven't had falafel since my college days in Rhode Island and I had forgotten how flavorful it is. Forgot to get the pita's so I just put the chicken on a bed of the slaw and it was delicious. Substituted with red pepper hummus and sweet chili sauce. Will definitely be making this recipe again and baking chi"

WOW! I was doing a trial run in preparation for thanksgiving and thought I would try this recipe since it's rated #1, has 5 stars and over 4,000 reviews. Once again, Alton did not let me down. I have never in my life had such moist white meat - it changes my whole outlook on Thanksgiving Dinner. BEST EVER! My turkey was a hair under 12 lbs and onl"

Aug 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a delicious and fresh meal. My husband loved the lemon flavor mixed with the chive and parsley. The only change I would make would be to grill the bread instead of put it under the broiler. "

Reviewed Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

Jul 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Great recipe! I was a little hesitant about grilling the romaine since I'd never done it before so I skipped that part but it was still a huge hit! The dressing has an essence of a ceasar dressing but is much lighter and more refreshing. Perfect for a hot summer day!"

Reviewed Steamed Clams with Chorizo and Fresh Corn

Jul 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a very delicious dish. We grilled fresh corn and it made the flavor nice and smokey. I consider myself a novice home cook and these instructions weren't complete. I am such a recipe follower so when so something isn't explained correctly, I fall apart! It never says what to do with the chorizo in the end? We sprinkled it on each bowl befor"

YUM!! This recipe is TDF, no wonder she is doing so well in Food Network Star. Keep up the good work - this proves you are a star!"

Reviewed Spaghetti with Pinot Grigio and Seafood

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

This was a good recipe and easy to make. The only small criticism I have is that the sauce was missing something. I like another reviewers suggestion of using some lemon juice and zest to kick up the flavor. Always love Giada's recipes, especially the big one dish entrees!"

I needed some simple syrup to glue fondant to sugar cookies. This worked well and only took about 2 minutes to make.

I made this for the 2nd time and it still lives up to it's 5 star rating. In fact, I loved it so much that I blogged about it (with images of the process): http://susiesgoods.blogspot.com/2010/11/you-say-crostada.html

I watched Anne make this on her show and thought to myself "I can do this!". I had never made dough before and I really surprised myself with this one. I made it exactly to the recipe and it was DE-LISH! Was even great as cold leftovers the next day on the boat!
