Monday, Jan 13, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I wish there was another way to respond to TN about this show. Jef (moron) Mauro does a disservice to the other personalities.He is neither charming or funny ("bloating and gas...please..gross..and not humorous).
I apologize for the review of the show and not the recipes even though they don't seem all that great.

"This recipe is similar to Ina's onion dip from her first cookbook..minus the wine. It is delicious and well worth the effort in carmelizing the onions."

Saturday, Aug 17, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

"Our family and friends love this gratin. For the salt issue, I have sl HP so I'm careful on the amount. Use your judgement on this ingredient. I use my mandolin to slice the zucchini..maybe a bit thicker than the recipe. It really doesn't get soggy. My new addition to the top is honey Panko (found it in a Chinese store. It gives it just a tad of s"

"This dish was one of the first recipes I tried from Foolproof and served it also on Christmas along with her mushroom and leek bread pudding. Our family loves green beans, notably haricots verts, so what's not to love here. These beans have a clean fresh taste due to the gremolta. One of the things I learned about Ina is that she only uses her own"

"I bought the Rao's cookbook in 1998 and have been making Frank's marinara since then. I only use San Marzano tomatoes which are sweet. In the summer, I purchase these tomatoes from our local farm market. I roast them 225* for 1 1/2 hr and continue with the recipe (you might have to add a bit of water for some liquid). I just used Frank's recipe th"

"I have made a number od recipes from her latest book, Mexican Made Easy, in which this particular dish was featured. I had a post-it on the page...to try which I finally did last night. It was truly delicious. I took the suggestion from a reviewer about adding a little avocado which gave it another texture to enjoy. it was easy to purchase the sea"

"I can't believe that Jamie is making this on his show today. I first made this 2 yrs ago when he made this on his mother's show. I actually made this 2 nights ago but used blueberries. You wouldn' think a fruit like this goes with filet but it is a match made in heaven. You have to try this recipe.. You won't be disappointed!!

"Talk about New England and seasonal ingredients...this recipe is outstanding. I added some chopped tomatoes (from the garden), a little more basil (how much pesto can one make) and loose chirizo sausage. because it's been so hot here in CT, this was put on the grill and voila..a great dinner.
I love almost all of the cooking shows..Mexican, southe"

Saturday, Jun 23, 2012 on Cooking Channel

"Made these potatoes for 2 special occasions and our guests loved this different flavoring for 2x potatoes. A small bottle of white truffle is abit expensive but goes a looooong way...you must use it sparingly but gives this dish fabulous finish. I also use the truffle oil as a finish dollop on a salad. Believe me, you will love it. Try this potato"

"It's difficult to describe a beautiful and delicious dish. I purchase all my fish at Whole Foods and that day they did not have black bass...however, the fishmonger gave me branzino which is a delicious white fish. That was the only exception to the recipe.

"I was searching for a recipe for lamb chops when I came across this fabulous dish. All the spices together made a delicate balance with her marinated lamb chops. You must give this a try.
On another note, I've made Aarti's Bombay Sloppy Joes a number of times with all quests requesting the recipe. It has a number of steps but well worth it.""

"Sausage and grapes? I would never have thought that this would be such an outstanding meal. I have to admit though I was skeptical aboutt this but very curious. I took the advice of others about making more sauce. It was so good I ordered the cookbook Cucino Simpatica in order to get more outstanding recipes. Go for it everyone!""
