Reviewed Broccoli with Garlic and Soy Sauce

Jan 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Just perfect! My husband and I love broccoli and garlic and soy sauce. Putting them together never crossed my mind. This is delicious. Wish I had made more. Having tons of fun with the infused oil; Brushed on individual bread loaves before baking; with some good balsamic to dress warm beets and leeks....the possibilities are endless.
THANK...

Perfect amount of spice/heat. I used Tobasco for the hot sauce. Even with seeding the tomatoes, I thought it was a bit wet. I wanted a more 'pully, stringy cheezy' and this wasn't it. The flavor was excellent. I was afraid the crab would be overshadowed with all the other flavors, but it wasn't. Next time I make it I might try a different cheese?"

Love everything about this. I would not change a thing. My husband kept insisting there was cheese in it. "

Great use of the wheatberry. Nice texture. The balsamic vinegar really adds some oomph. I added celery to the sauted onions because I had them on hand. What about some left over lamb or roast beef stirred in and served as a main dish with a Reisling?""

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

Great for the 'too many zucchini' blues! Moist, flavorful and goes together easily. I bet it would freeze well, but there isn't any left over.
p/s I added 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut and used dried cherries because that's what I had."

Love this but glad I had all day to make it! The photo on the July/August cover sold me this pie though I have an aversion to making pie crust. This went together easily even though there was quite a bit of wait time (for the tomatoes and cooking crust) Love the manchego. I used whole wheat flour and basil since that's what I had and both worked w"

This is an outstanding soup! Great use of kale. I did not believe that it would cook in 11 minutes, but it does. Very hardy and well spiced.

Good cookie overall, but not the dark, spicy, deeply cracked ginger snaps I remember from my childhood.
