Dec 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really liked this sugar cookie recipe! I thought that it was great. I cut down the sugar just a little, to about 3/4 of a cup instead, and they still were a good amount of sweetness (just looking to cut back a little!). This is a great staple and just a good sugar cookie recipe in general. ""

I love this recipe so much! Thank you for your genius, Giada. The texture is great--just how a biscotti should be, crunchy, and slightly crumbly. I've made this a few times, some without the white chocolate and some with. It tastes good either way. I love how it's sweet from the cranberries, salty from the pistachios, and crunchy all at the same t"

These blueberry muffins are pretty good! I didn't have any leftovers and everyone loved them! In my opinion, they taste best when eaten hot, so you can refrigerate batter and just bake when you want them. (that's what I did) I cut down the sugar a little, just like I always do in recipes as well."

I love making these cookies cause they're so cute, delicious, and fun to make!!! they're a little bit on the sweet side, especially with the white chocolate chips so whenever i make them I add less sugar. It's such an amazing cookie and they're gone before i know it! "

This was such an amazing cake!!! I really loved the texture, taste, and look! All of it was great. It had a good lemon taste, and the syrup really made the cake. I didn't actually add all of the syrup I made; I thought it was too much. I didn't use the glaze or the blueberry sauce either. It turned out amazing! I'll definitely make it again."

I liked these cookies, but the amount of fat in them kind of grossed me out. The trumpets are hard to form, but if you handle them the right way then they were fine, although they sort of open again if you don't do it right.
These were okay cookies, but i felt like they contain way too much fat.

Feb 11, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these cookies and I absolutely loved them! I changed pretty much nothing with the recipe, but I made the cookies thinner than they did in the video. Also, I didn't use electric knife, just a sharp regular knife I had. They turned out fine. You just have to make sure that you do it slowly. I never ran into any of the complaints the previous...

Reviewed Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Feb 11, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These cookies were great! They tasted nice and lemony and had a cake-like texture. One thing that I found though was that the icing/glaze wasn't nearly as thick as the one in the video, but I didn't mind it at all. I actually think it's better that way. I also cut down the amount of sugar in the cookie batter like I do with all the recipes I use.
Overall,...

Reviewed Mac and Cheese

Jan 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is great!
I made a few minor changes, due to saving money. Instead of using 12 oz of gyuere and 8 ounces of cheddar, I switched it around. Also, I didn't add the tomatoes, and it tasted fine! The only thing is that I think it calls for too much breadcrumbs. I found that I only needed less than 1/2 of what it called for. Overall,...

I love this recipe!! The muffins taste great... and to @kaimo_11649663 , just weight measure it and then put it into a cup measure and write down how much of the ingredient you need by volume. The weight just makes it more accurate.

Reviewed Roasted Turkey with Maple Cranberry Glaze

Nov 23, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I just have one question. How come in the video the recipe is just for a maple glaze and in the recipe it is a maple cranberry glaze....? Food Network needs to change that, otherwise wonderful recipe.
For the cooking technique I used what Alton Brown did for his "Good Eats Roast Turkey," except in the middle of the 350 degree cooking time...
