Reviewed Foolproof Standing Rib Roast

Dec 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

FInally a perfect roast! I've been trying for years to get it right, and it usually came out overdone. Like most, I was a little skeptical about the method, but it was perfect. I had a 5.6 lb. roast, took it out for about 2 hours at room temp. before roasting, and the initial read on the thermometer was around 60 degrees. I like my prime rib more "

Reviewed Pasta with Pancetta and Leeks

Sep 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Family plowed through this one without any leftovers. Easy to make. Love the leeks! Would be nice with added chicken or shrimp, but fine by itself too. I doubled the cream too because I made it with 16 oz. pasta. Oh, and I just used regular applewood smoked bacon instead of the pancetta. "

Great for such a hot day. Loved the crunch of the veggies and the flavor of the grilled shrimp was a nice compliment."

Very easy and delicious! My kids always thought the only way to make pudding was from a box. Now they know how much better homemade is!

Reviewed Five Layer Mexican Dip

Dec 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made this for an open house yesterday and everyone loved it. The chipotle gives it a great smoky flavor. My husband asked why I hadn't made this sooner--"It's FABULOUS!" he said. Very flavorful and pretty to look at. So much better than the premade 5 layer dips, and you don't miss the sour cream. Thanks Ellie!""

These were amazing! One of the best potato dishes I ever made! Definitely not too healthy, but worth every calorie""

Reviewed Sweet and Sour Chicken

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

My family loved this! It was a really easy weeknight meal and tasted as good as take out, but healthier. I added a little grated fresh ginger and sliced carrots (like the picture). I found the sauce a little thicker for my liking (after adding the cornstarch mixture), but I kept all of the juice from the pineapple can and added most of the remain"

Reviewed Chicken and Broccoli Stir-fry

Jan 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My family loved this easy weeknight meal. I added other veggies including sliced carrots, diced red peppers and red onion, napa cabbage, and mushrooms. I added some crushed red peppers while I cooked it too, but not too much because of my small kids. I garnished it with chopped fresh cilantro. Will definitely make again.

Reviewed Greek-Style Stuffed Peppers

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

My family loved this recipe. It was really easy and tasted great. I added fresh garlic, and I would add more seasonings next time. Liked the tomatoes on top too. I didn't have bulgar on hand, so I used cooked brown rice instead and worked great. I also used a mix of beef and turkey. Will make again!

Dec 4, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

We loved this meal. It was easy and we loved the tangerine flavor with the beef. It was a bit spicy for the kids, so next time I will cut down on the chili sauce. I also added fresh broccoli and it gave it some nice color, and served it with steamed rice.

Reviewed Company Pot Roast

Nov 23, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I've never been a big fan of pot roast. I just remember the rubber ones my grandmother always turned out for family gatherings. But this was fantastic! Full of rich flavor from the wine, tender, and moist. I browned it in the dutch oven, then put it in my crockpot all day on low. I added baby carrots and pearl onions to the pot to cook with the roast...

Reviewed Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken Breast

Oct 1, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

My family loved this--even those who usually don't like chicken. I didn't have sun-dried tomatoes or parmesan cheese on hand, so I used chopped fresh tomatoes and mozzarella instead. I also added some pesto to the mixture too. It was easy and flavorful and moist. Will definitely make again, only I'll make more of it as it disappeared quickly!
