Reviewed Cocoa-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Chocolate Tomato Sauce

Apr 7, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This dish had a very unique flavor. Since there is just my husband and i, used two pork steaks and grilled them instead of baked. I halved the seasoning ingredients for the pork since only making for two. For the sauce i still made the whole recipe, should have halved it too! Oh well, its so good i will make up some rice just to eat the rest of"

This recipe is a keeper! I followed the directions as listed except i added one finely chopped roma tomato and to save time used store bought turkey meatballs from Trader Joe's and chopped into eights so the meat was evenly distributed on the pizza. The sauce is fantastic! I thought this was way to much time in the oven but it turned out perf"

Nov 20, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

This is amazing! I double the recipe since i was serving ten and it was plenty once i added sides. The turkey is divine! The cook time is extremely low, i cooked for 1hr and 20minutes and then put in crock pot on warm until dinner. I used 2 4lb turkey breasts. The sauce is thin but is quite tasty, it was used on stuffing as well. The pomegra"

Oh my, this sauce is spectacular.. It is so fresh and yummy. I did not have veal chops so used pork chops and served over couscous. This flavor is unique and so clean and delicious. This is the perfect recipe to use my summer herbs. I will be adding this to my regular summer rotation. Thanks Giada!"

This recipe is definitely a keeper! I halfed the recipe since it was only my husband and I! I stuck to the recipe except i added extra broth since my sauce was super thick. The flavors are amazing. I was afraid it was going to be to spicy but it was perfect. Since i used 10ounce ribeyes just served with a salad and it was plenty. I would sugg"

I made this for a dinner party side dish with roasted chicken. My guests were delighted and thought it was unique and delicious. My husband requested that i add to regular rotation of menu items. I stuck to the ingredients in the recipe but had really large lemons so only juiced two and i added chopped roma tomatoes at the end for extra flavor "

Jul 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Yummo! This recipe was so easy. I halfed the recipe since it was for two and it was still delicious! The only thing that was problematic was the flour was lumpy once added! Next time i will whisk it with a bit of water before putting in the sauce to avoid the lumps. I will definitely be making this for company! It is will surely impress gues"

I recently read about the nutrional benefits of black rice so was excited when i found a recipe with ingredients i liked. This was really yummy. The rice has a very nutty flavor. I mixed in two chopped roma tomatoes and topped it with grilled chicken. This will definitely be added to my recipe collection."

Reviewed Halibut Ceviche Salad

Jul 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

What a treat! I used cooked shrimp instead of the halibut since it was what i had on hand and was in a hurry so did not have the three hour time for the fish to cook in the juices. It was amazing with the shrimp and I will be making this often. I order ceviche often in restaurants and was delighted when this came out even better at home! I w"

Reviewed Fresh Corn Tomato Salad

May 29, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is so yummy!!! It is perfect for a picnic or a BBQ! It reminds me of Caprese salad with the addition of sweetness from the corn. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of only using 4 ears of corn instead of six. I will probably continue only using 4ears since I think that there would not be enough other ingredients to balance o"
