Sep 11, 2012 in on Food.com

I have never had this soup at Olive Garden, but it sounded good enough to try from all it's favorable reviews. I am SO glad I did. It's just delicious and my kids LOVED it. I think the (8 ounce) notation next to the "cans of chicken broth" is off, however. Normal cans of broth are more than 8oz -- I think. I ended up adding more like 28 ...

I'm a big fan of Giada's recipes normally, but this one just didn't do it for me. The chicken was very moist and tender, but the flavor of the sauce wasn't a big hit with my family. Following the directions, the sauce ended up very watery. Not sure I would simmer it covered. I had to cook the sauce on high for an additional 20-30 minutes unt"

I will definitely make these again, h-o-w-e-v-e-r....my print out of this recipe had notes all over it after I was done. No need to deep fry. An inch of oil and turning the fish once is fine. I found that the flour dredging was a waste of time and it just fried off in the process. For the 2nd batch, I added beer to the flour until it was a...

I just made this last night and am in LOVE, once again, with Giada's ability to make amazing food come together with very basic ingredients and short preparation times! A wonderful flavor combination. The cream sauce is not too heavy and works perfectly with the spinach bed. I never use frozen spinach. I prefer fresh any day and it cooks ...

I just had this soup at a British restaurant this last weekend and I liked it so much, I wanted to try and make it myself. Never used leeks before and I am now a major fan. What a great mild root it is!!! I can see just doing step one of this recipe and serving the cooked leeks over mashed potatos. Anyway -- This soup was fabulous! I l...

Reviewed Sole with Pesto Cream

Oct 29, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This dish is very fast and easy to make, even on a weeknight. However...fillet of sole is just not the right fish for this. Sole is an extremely fragile fish and it falls apart quickly in a frying pan on it's own. I ended up with a pile of mush to push my sauce over. The sauce is great, but I would use a different fish next time as others...

Well what can I say? This is really good, very hearty, but does require time and attention. The family loved it, but they all commented that my skillet penne pasta recipe tastes almost identical to this and it's done in about 30 minutes. So that is now somewhat of a deterrent to making this again. "

Apr 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I would definitely make this recipe again, but with a few adjustments. The salting of the chicken and then again on the spinach and then AGAIN on the sauce is too much. The prosciutto is pretty salty all by itself. And I would agree with the others who noted adding provolone or harvarti cheese would jazz it up a bit more. I would definitely...

I couldn't find a strawberry cake mix in any grocery store in my area, so like many others, I substituted a butter flavor white cake mix instead. I must say that this cake tastes exactly like strawberry shortcake, however.... It was way too soggy.

So, so good! I love that the chicken breast is not breaded like is commonly done with chicken parm. I used chicken tenderloins and my own red spaghetti sauce, but you could easily use a good jar sauce and it would still work. The family ate it right up!"

This salad was surprisingly good. I wanted to try it because it was something totally different from salads I would normally make. With the odd combination of layers in here, I was intrigued, but didn't have my hopes up too high. I absolutely loved it. I only made a 1/2 recipe, just in case it was a flop and my daughter and I were fighting...

Very impressed with this dish. Another winner from Giada! I always make half a recipe when I try something new because it's so hard to get rid of food when no one likes it. And I hate to waste food! Well, this casserole was gone in a flash, but a half recipe was really the perfect size for a family of 4. I wouldn't make the full recipe unless...

These wings were easy and very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly and didn't have any issues with the wings sticking or them being dry. In fact, mine were floating in a 1/4" of juice at the end. The sauce didn't reduce down on it's own for me even after a long time, so I did throw in a tsp. or two of cornstarch and it turned then into a perfect...
