Reviewed Donatelli's - Meat Sauce Recipe

Wednesday, Jan 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Ugh. If I wanted to eat tomato paste, I could save a lot of time, money and trouble and just put a glob of tomato paste on some spaghetti. This sauce tasted EXACTLY like a can of tomato paste. I thought 24 oz sounded like too much and I should have listened to my gut. I managed to salvage the sauce by adding a saut���ed grated carrot, 2 beef bullion...

"This recipe is soooo good. We make this regularly. I can't recommend it enough. I shape the meatloaf into two free form loaves in a baking dish to make them a bit smaller so they bake faster."

Monday, Apr 30, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"These could get you into trouble! Absolutely delicious. I didn't have time to make the lime ice cubes in advance, so I just added the juice of 2 limes into the rest of the ingredients. I also just stirred the cocktail instead of shaking since I didn't have a cocktail shaker on hand. I will definitely be making these often!"

"Loved this recipe! The acidity from the dressing really cut through the richness of the peanut sauce from the noodles in this episode and made an excellent accompaniment. I also had this recipe with pad thai and again it was a great acidic match. ""

Sunday, Mar 18, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"Delicious! I used whole grain linguini instead of regular pasta and it was really good -- the peanut sauce matched really well with the whole grain flavor, which can be a bit much sometimes. I will definitely make this again.""

Sunday, Mar 18, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"I felt like this recipe needed some soy sauce in the marinade. The chops just came out tasting like orange and not much else. They needed salt badly. I wouldn't make this one again. However, the other two recipes from this episode are awesome!""

Reviewed Chinese Spaghetti and Meatballs

Sunday, Mar 18, 2012 on Cooking Channel

"Very tasty! The meatballs are super delicious - I used turkey instead of pork. I also used brown rice udon noodles instead of just regular pasta. I liked them a lot as they didn't seem to get overly soggy in the leftover soup. I will definitely make this again.""

Reviewed Sweet Peach Cake

Sunday, Mar 18, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"Very tasty! I used frozen peaches (defrosted, drained and patted dry with a paper towel) since I didn't have any canned on hand. I thought that over an hour of baking time was going to be way too long, so I shorted it a bit and even though the toothpick came out clean, the cake fell in the center while cooling. Next time I will bake the full time.""

"Delicious! Another great Giada recipe. I like to saute the pancetta and get it brown before adding any other vegetables - otherwise the fat doesn't render and stays on the bits of pancetta. That way you also don't have to add any oil, as well. I had to leave out the parmesan since I can't eat dairy at the moment, but it was delicious without it. I""

"Absolutely love this recipe! I haven't made it as a make-ahead meal (we just eat it immediately). It's really flavorful and the egg on top really makes it!""

Reviewed Rice Pilaf with Chorizo Casserole

Thursday, Feb 2, 2012 on Cooking Channel

"This recipe is delicious! My husband and I love it and make it regularly. I made it for company and they loved it, too. Sometimes I have a hard time finding Spanish (cooked) chorizo, so I often use fresh Mexican chorizo. I just brown it up out of the casings like ground beef and mix it in with the rice. Delicious!""
