Reviewed Chicken Stew with Biscuits

Mar 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm making this dish tonight....for the third time! It's really tasty and the biscuits are perfect with it. The only thing I change is to half the recipes for the two of us and now I use celery in place of the small onions---just like the combination better with it instead of all the onions. My son loves this dish and requests it often! It's a nice,...

Very good indeed! Just the perfect amount of sweetness with a light, flakey texture. The next time I make these I will add a little more orange zest as suggested by other reviewers for a little more pronounced orange flavor. This recipe is a definite keeper!"

Reviewed Creamy Farfalle with Cremini, Asparagus, and Walnuts

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

This is a very good dish! To those who think it's bland--it's very important to use a good brand of Marscapone as this is key to the flavor. Also, if there isn't enough salt in the pasta water, it will make it bland.
I have made this a few time and have added pancetta, shallots, extra garlic, and Italian parsley along the way. Doing that...

Reviewed Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Loved these cookies!!! Was looking for a moist cookie recipe & when I saw this one decided to give it a try---very glad I did.
Love most of Giadas recipes and this one is no exception. For those who like a less lemony taste, try using Meyer lemons in place of regular ones for a more toned down lemon flavor.
Thanks again Giada!"

Not only is this fudge delicious, it is also smooth & creamy! Well worth the effort and a definite keeper.
Thanks so much for all the delicious recipes Giada!!!

Reviewed Caramel Sauce

Feb 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This caramel sauce is simply delicious! I halved the recipe & decided to use some butter & a pinch of salt as suggested by another reviewer. Having never done anything like this before, I wasn't sure what to expect but ended up having great luck. My sugar started browning before it ever reached the crystallization stage so didn't have to deal with...

Reviewed Spicy Coconut Shrimp with Spicy Mango Basil Salsa and Lime Jasmine Rice

Jan 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this for my son & myself for dinner today, and, in his words, it was "outstanding". I did switch out the basil for cilantro and had to use pasilla pepper in place of the jalapenos because my son isn't too keen on hot foods---otherwise, followed recipe exactly. I suspect using basil in place of the cilantro would also be excellent & will try...

Reviewed Blueberry Crumb Cake

Jan 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this exactly as written and it turned out great. Very tasty! Loved that the cake was moist and not heavy in the least. I thought the mix of lemon and blueberry flavors were just perfect. I plan to make this again soon!

Reviewed Profiteroles

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

I made this recipe exactly as written and the profiteroles came out perfectly! The pastry was very light and melt in your mouth good and the chocolate sauce is divine.
The second time I made the recipe, I decided to use a lemon curd filling in place of the ice cream and chocolate and they were excellent that way as well.
I've...

Reviewed Apricot Oat Bars

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

These bars are delicious!!! Followed recipe exactly and these came out perfectly. Several of my family members have tried these and all raved about how good they were. Have made them three times now and the last time I did I used an apricot-pineapple perserve which was also delicious. Love Giadas' recipes and this one is no exception.
