Reviewed Beef with Snow Peas

Sep 18, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made this recipe exactly as prescribed...my husband loved it but I found the soy sauce too overpowering...will definitely make again but with less soy sauce and more water or beef stock."

Delicious...best meatloaf I have ever had. I followed the receip exactly except I used half ground pork, half ground sirloin. Excellent"

Reviewed Cincinnati Spaghetti

Oct 7, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This, like all chillies works great for a crowd and is easy to make. I only used 1/4 tsp of chile powder; 2 tablespoons would have sent my family into the stratosphere. I don't think you need 2 tbs of EVOO either if you are browning the bacon; that would give off enough fat for anything else you are putting in the pot plus if you use ground chuc"

Reviewed Iny's Prune Cake with Buttermilk Icing

Oct 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very tasty, moist and also extremely sweet. Have to eat with ice cream or you''ll be bouncing off the walls. I will also call it plum cake. It took longer than 5 minutes for the icing to turn caramel color so don't give up the boiling at cream colored. It is also not visually appealing so it's not something I would serve whilst entertaining; m"

Aug 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Truly disappointed. As there were no reviews yesterday, I checked out this recipe on Pioneer Woman's web site and there she says she prefers using shortening whereas on the show she says she prefers half butter, half shortening. I decided to go with the all shortening. The muffins looked perfectly fine, had a lovely texture, were not difficult t"

Jul 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious..nice and easy one pot/sheet pan dish. I did make a gravy to go with the dish for those of the family I knew would find it dry as there is no liquid except for fat from the chicken."

Reviewed Mexican Rice

May 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious. I used 3 cups of water to the 1.5 cups of rice as this is the ratio I am accustomed to. Also added 2 tsps of Cumin powder but otherwise followed the recipe. Will definitely make again; everyone loved it."

Reviewed Chocolate Espresso Cheesecake with Ganache

Mar 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Easy enough to make but I found this cheesecake somewhat tasteless. I spread the ganache over the top like a topping because I couldn't get it to dribble off the spoon..it looked fine but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. I did not use a water bath..only read the comments later and it only cracked around the outside edges a little; e...

Reviewed Pot Roast Carbonnade

Jan 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very disappointed as all these great reviews did not match my experience. I may have gone wrong with the choice of guiness as the beer; am not a beer drinker so perhaps this is why I did not like the sour taste of the sauce. I added more beef stock, sugar, salt and even tomato sauce...to try and mask the sourness...it helped only a little. ""

Reviewed Cauliflower in Curry Cream Sauce

May 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Loved this recipe...easy to make and delicious. The curry powder gives it a lovely flavor but no heat for those who don't like spicy. I added more cream than she did as I like lots of sauce. "

Reviewed Strawberry Cannoli Parfaits

Nov 11, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This is extremely easy and quick to make and looks very impressive. I mascerated the strawberries just for an hour with Grand Marnier as I did not really want the alcohol taste. If you make ahead by a couple of hours like I did, the amaretti crumbs will soften, more tiramisu like so if you want the crunch you should not assemble it too far ahead....
