Reviewed Green Beans with Caramelized Onions and Almonds

Dec 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made this a few times, usually for Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve. This dish is best for LARGE CROWDS with BIG APPETITES. It makes too much, could barely keep it all in the pan while sauteing. It's good, but not great, on the bland side. I spiced it up with fresh chopped garlic, crushed red pepper, and rosemary in addition to the thyme. Something ...

So good! I used Emeril's Bayou Blast Cajun seasoning because that's what I had on hand. I sauteed the garlic and sundried tomatoes with an added diced jalapeno, seeds too. Also, I added a pinch of cayenne to the Alfredo sauce. I did not mix the chicken into the pasta, but sliced it and fanned out on top of the dish. Served with: cheesy garlic Ciab"

I used bone-in, skin-on Chicken Breasts that had been halved. The marinade was OUT OF THIS WORLD! So delicious. Couldn't find Meyer lemons so I justed used the regular ones. Nice and tangy. Simple, too. I served with sauteed green beans & caramelized onions. Definitely keeping this in my repatiore."

Yummy, with a few changes. Had to use my indoor grill pan, as the weather in NY is not pleasant. I added a packet of McCormick's "Mexican Fiesta" spice mix to the marinade. The chicken came out absolutely DELICIOUS! I loved the spicy, smokey flavor of the chiles in adobo. Did not enjoy the tomatillos - they had to be put under the broiler, and I had...

There's potential - but it's not a keeper. The chicken was good, I used Emeril's Bayou Blast, a popular cajun-Creole seasoning on both sides & grilled. Topped the open-faced chicken breasts with baby spinach and thick slices of melty montery-jack cheese studded with jalapeno pieces. Baked in the oven until just cooked through & the cheese was bubbly....

Came out really good! I used apple cider vinegar in place of the red wine, which I think actually ADDED more flavor. I don't eat pepperoni, so I left it out. Couldn't find the hot cherry pepper spread, so I substituted hot banana pepper rings. "

Not in love with this.. loved the idea of the flavor combinations & the peanut butter frosting was great, as was the chocolate dip. However, the main part - the 'cupcake' - was very dense and heavy. The taste was ehhh.. nothing great. I think I will look for a different banana cupcake recipe, but keept the toppings from this one."

So easy to make, but so so good! Left out the garbanzo beans, simply just because I'm not a fan... Added some cubed mozzarella to give it some more texture. Came out fantastic! The dressing is a little bland so I added red pepper flake, ground nutmeg, and lemon zest."

Can't wait to make this for my hubby on valentine's Day! I think it'll take the advice of so many of you and leave out the cherries, brandy/cognac and OJ. The raspberry puree is an awesome idea! Perhaps I'll use some carmel sauce to decorate the plate as well.

Ehh.. caramelized the onions, that was the only good part about this. I am a fan of all things spicy, and like other users said, this was too much red pepper. My dough did not rise either, which made the bread flat and crunchy, closer to a cracker-like snack. Also, added some garlic, which helped, but did not dilute the stregnth of the herbs. Won't...
