Reviewed Banana Crunch Muffins

Oct 29, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I mades these muffins this morning because I had a few over ripe bananas and didn't want to wast them. I am tired of the old fashion banana bread and muffin recipes and this one added a lot of new elements so I tried it out with a few minor changes. I left out the coconut because I don't like it baked into things and I used 3 large eggs because...

Very impressive presentation and you can't go wrong with this recipe. The only difference I made was assembly. I used Nutella then placed a few fresh sliced strawberry's in a single layer and then topped them with the whipped cream then the next layer of cake so it didn't slide. I bet you could use chocolate pudding if you didn't have Nutella o"

These were an easy appetizer to make and tastes great my husband loved them. I did a test run to see how they would be to serve for Christmas and they got 2 thumbs up from the family. I followed the recipe exactly and used both the parmesan and brown sugar and loved them both. I will definitely make theses again and again. I used center cut ba"

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

I just made this Gingerbread I wish I had read the reviews first when I didn't see the eggs I thought it must be an accident and went to another recipe that was very similar and it required 3 eggs so I throw them in. I also added the optional 1 cup of powdered sugar because I like sweet bread. The batter was perfect not to thin or thick, just ri"

I used this recipe with a few minor changes because I had to make a few dozen cookies for my daughters dance recital today.

When she talks about parts it depends on how much you are making. If you use one cup (part) vodka and 1/2 cup (part) irish cream. One cup espresso over ice should work. "

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

This was good but actually think it needed more butter for the crust it was a little crumbly. I will add 1 and a half sticks next time and there will be a next time. I also added the zest of one lemon and a few drops of lemon extract to the cheese for more flavor and it came out very well."

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

I think the basic idea to use baking mix is good however they needed more flavor. A pinch of salt and vanilla would do the trick in making these a 5 star recipe. "

I have made these so many times but usually roll the dough into balls and dip them after they cool in the melted chocolate then re-cool. They are delicious and because they are so sweet the bite size is better for portion control.""

I made this ice cream yesterday, I started first thing in the morning thinking this would get at least 8 hrs in the fridg. to cool. I put it in the ice cream maker and it did not freeze. I did as many reviewer suggested to just use whole milk and 1/2 and 1/2, cut the sugar to 3/4ths cups and it was plenty sweet enough the problem was it didn't ...

I made this last night for Dinner and it was just OK. I used cooking spray as the recipe called for and my pork chops did not brown the mustard stuck to the bottom of the pan. I did as another poster suggested and De-glazed with red wine but the color just wasn't right. I will try again using olive oil to brown the chops. The cranberry sauce ...

I made these today but must have used a different cinnamon roll than Sandra because mine had the cinnamon rolled into it. I just used apples because I didn't have any nuts in the pantry. I just sprayed my muffin tins and they came out good. The rolls did rise unevenly but after setting them up in a baking dish the weight of the muffins righted...

Great Grilled or pressed. I would recommend light rye bread as I don't know what pullman bread is and didn't see the episode. I also used reg. bacon and apple slices instead of green tomatoes as they are out of season.
