Replied to Winter Minestrone Recipe : Giada De Laurentiis : Food Network

Sunday 2 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

I do this too - cook the pasta separately and ladle soup over a serving of it in a bowl. It's much MUCH better this way, the pasta doesn't thicken the entire pot of soup too much, as it has a tendency to do.

Reviewed leek potato soup

Sunday, Feb 23, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Excellent soup. Made just a couple of tweaks, as usual. Once the leeks were sweated/softened, I added 2 cloves of finely minced garlic, saut���ed for a couple of minutes (since the heat was so low), then added about a cup of good white wine. I increased the heat and let the alcohol cook off before adding the broth and proceeding with the recipe. I...

Saturday, Sep 14, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

"I concur on almost all points with the other reviewers. Yes, there are essentially 3 or 4 preps - cook the shells, make the filling, make the cheese sauce, and if you so choose, making a from-scratch marinara; all these things have to be done prior to assembling and baking. So a bit time consuming, but very worth it! I've made many versions of stu"

"I was so skeptical of this recipe, but love so many of Kelsey's recipes that I had to try it. Simply put, it was fantastic! My husband spends hours making homemade sauces of all kinds and he was a bit put out because he thought this tasted better than his version. It seems so odd to put ground raw meat into the crockpot - but the meat was certainl"

"This is an excellent recipe. Don't overcook them - I pulled mine at about 7-8 mins, and after topping the cookies with a chocolate kiss put them back into the oven for just about 30 seconds. They came out perfect!"

"Despite the number of negative reviews, I have found Ina's recipes have served me well so I made this cake today and was very pleased with how it came out - light and moist, not too dense at all. I think the issue for some might be that they are using dark baking pans - when you use dark baking pans, you almost always have to cut the baking time d"

Saturday, Sep 15, 2012 on Cooking Channel

"This is a fantastic recipe; the ONLY adjustment I made to it was to add two cloves of chopped garlic to the veggies a minute or two before the beans and rest of the ingredients were added. It's a delicious dish, easy to prepare, has that nice Carolina-style BBQ "tang" to it, and got rave reviews from everyone who ate it. We made it as part of our "

"Anne Burrell's recipes are always my favorites. She's bold in everything she cooks, and that's the way I love to cook too. I made this braciole as listed, with the exception of throwing in about a half a cup of raisins, in a bow to tradition. I looked for currants but couldn't find them. This recipe is work, but the results are worth it. It did ma"

"This recipe is the best tomato soup recipe I've found. It truly is delicious, not to mention healthy! The roasting of the tomatoes is key here - it sweetens them up nicely. I decided that since I was roasting tomatoes, I'd go ahead and roast some garlic too. Roasting really mellows and sweetens the flavor of garlic. This is in addition to the garl""

"This is my favorite coleslaw recipe; I get so many compliments and requests for the recipe when I make it. Dried cranberries are such a great addition to this and many other dishes - I added them to a fennel and endive salad too. That chewy burst of sweetness really offsets all of the flavors of this coleslaw. Highly recommended!
