Reviewed Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Sep 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Never had Brussels Sprouts before and I was weary having heard only bad things about them. I'm glad I made them (It was an accident actually; I was supposed to make another recipe but I didn't have bacon). They were AMAZING. Crispy, chewy, great flavor. I have a new favorite side, I think. I used canola oil instead of olive oil. It worked fine. ""

Reviewed Maple Sweet Potato Puree with Caramelized Onions

A fun substitute for mashed potatoes. Would have tasted better with more onions and I don't think the onions and the potato mixture should have been mashed together. I could see myself making more. ""

Pretty good. Still pretty heavy on the calories and fat. My middle layer was very chewy, my chocolate layer very hard, and my shortbread layer too crumbly. Of course, that was more than likely my fault but still. Pretty hard to make, not out of control good: I probably wouldn't make it again. ""

It needed salt. A lot of salt. I liked the texture but for the fat and calories consumed, it wasn't worth it. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't my taste. I probably wouldn't make it again. ""

Reviewed Zucchini Mini Muffins with Orange-Maple Glaze

Aug 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These are amazing! Not added sugar but they have just the right amount of sweetness. I love the extra fiber and nutrition. I've never eaten zucchini before this but I will explore it's use more now. My only complaint was the glaze. It was unnecessary and I personally didn't like it. I twas overpoweringly orange and not sweet enough for my taste. ...

I did not like it. I tried to but it just wasn't my taste. The vinegar made it taste like it had sour cream which I liked but the garlic was still quite overpowering even with such a little amount, which I admit was my fault. There was no real flavor beyond the garlic. It was easy but I wouldn't be making it again. ""
