Reviewed Green Bean Casserole

Nov 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is an amazing good dish. I was unable to get fresh beans, and used two cans of Allen brand cut beans. I also used a bit of bacon fat with the butter to saute the onions and mushrooms. I omitted the cheese since another dish I served was loaded with cheese. Everyone was clamoring for seconds.

Nov 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

We have Thanksgiving early due to travel plans. And while looking for ways to use leftovers, I found this recipe which I modified to suit what I had on hand. I topped toast with cornbread dressing. No self-respecting cook in my family would serve any other kind. Then added sliced turkey over the dressing. The only change I made to the gravy was re"

This was served to guests, and was well received. I am from Texas, and would never use black beans or feta cheese in a truly Mexican dish. I used pinto beans (mashed) and grated Mexican blend cheese. I have used recipes I liked better."

Very tasty. One of the best recipes out there. I added mushrooms and browned ground beef to sauce and cooked in slow cooker for about 4 hours. Everyone wanted seconds."

Oct 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I substituted coconut oil for EVOO with little change in flavor, and as always, added more garlic than recipe called for. The pasta was one of the best I have eaten. Be sure to fork test cod often since the thinner filets are easily overcooked. Overall, an excellent recipe, and the best indication of the recipe's goodness--my 2-year-old great-gra"

Reviewed Roast Beef with Spicy Parsley Tomato Sauce

Mar 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I cooked the roast for a couple of hours in the oven at 275. It came out fork tender. Found the vinegar a bit over-powering, but overall, a tasty dish. Looking forward to trying it again, but with less vinegar.""

Jan 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Awesome recipe. Very pretty presentation, designed to impress the most discriminating guest. Was unable to get haricot verts and arugula way out in the sticks, but substituted them with blue lake green beans (cooked a few minutes longer than 1-1/2 minutes, but still crisp-tender) and leaf lettuce without any degradation in taste or appearance.

Reviewed Herb Roasted Chicken

Jan 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The broth and veggies were good, but can't say the same for the chicken. The chicken was dry even though there was plenty of liquid.I usually love the golden brown skin, but the herbs made it taste like dry grass. ""

Reviewed Dad's Meatloaf with Tomato Relish

Jan 30, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Great meat loaf recipe. Since I was only serving 3 people, I omitted the ground pork and used only 1 pound ground beef. I also divided all ingredients in half. Meat loaf was cooked in microwave for 15 minutes. It came out very moist and tasty. Bacon seemed to enhance the flavor. Am anxious to try it in oven when time permits.""

This punch is always a hit anywhere you serve it, weddings, showers, parties. It is same punch that my mother used for years. Ingredients can be found in almost any grocery store and mixes quickly and easily. ""

Reviewed Cornbread Stuffed Crown Roast of Pork

Dec 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Crown roast was excellent with good flavor, juicy and tender, but the dressing was not a hit. It was rather bland. If I make this recipe again, I will definitely ditch the dressing in favore of my old sage dresing recipe.""

Tastes great and makes a nice decoration for the table or buffet. I used fresh broccoli instead of frozen. ""
