Best Food Network Recipes I Ever Made

I have an equal love for creating my own recipes and reviewing other people’s recipes. I have learned more skills, techniques, flavors, and ingredients. I wanted to take a chance to share with you some of my favorite recipes I have done over the years on this blog.

Giada de Laurentiis

Giada Orecchiette Sausage Fennel
Giada’s Orecchiette with Roasted Fennel and Sausage | Read my full review

This was the first time I combined sausage, fennel, and pasta. What a winning combination. Also the first time I ever used orecchitee was with this recipe. Now it’s pasta I have come to love and appreciate.

Giada Sweet Potato Tots
Giada’s Sweet Potato Tots with Dill Dust | Read my full review

The recipe helped me out in two ways. Gave me a new way to cook sweet potatoes that I enjoyed. Second, the sprinkling of dill dust on top (dill plus salt, dried out in the oven) What a great idea to make your own herb salts using fresh herbs. Something I really want to try out next gardening season.

A few other Giada recipes to try out:
Giada’s Cannellini Bean and Sausage Stew
Giada’s Cranberry BBQ Sauce Turkey Sliders
Giada’s Baked Mashed Potatoes with Peas, Parmesan Cheese and Breadcrumbs

Alton Brown

Dry Brined Turkey
Alton Brown’s Butterflied Dry Brined Turkey | Read my full review

Best Turkey Ever! I have made this original Good Eats turkey, but this one even tops that. The recipe is set up in a way where most of the work is done days before you cook it. So on Thanksgiving just slide it into the oven and deliciousness will come out in a short amount of time, thanks to butterflying the turkey.

Alton Brown’s Chocapocalypse Cookies| Read my full review

The ultimate chocolate lover’s cookie. Might be the best cookies I ever made. Also might be the most expensive cookie I ever made. I have only made them that one time, but man were those amazing.

Other Alton Brown recipes to try:
Alton Brown’s Whipped Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes
Alton Brown’s Best Ever Homemade Mustard
Alton Brown’s Butternut Squash Dumplings (Gnocchi)

The Pioneer Woman

Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread
Pioneer Woman’s Pull Apart Cinnamon Bread | Read my full review

There are a lot of recipes for pull apart bread online. It’s a trendy treat the last few years. What really stands out in this recipe is the maple icing. I wanted to lick the bowl I made it in (ok I actually did do this!)
