Reviewed French Coconut Pie

Aug 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is an amazing recipe and inexpensive to make if you make your own pie crust.
I made 2 pies for a get together and got rave reviews with the following changes:
1. Added a large package of coconut flakes (guessing 3 cups)
2. Replaced half n half for the milk (the French would do this :)
3. Added a tsp. of vanilla.
Next...

This is an outstanding cake with the following adjustments:
I double the cake ingredients to make a 13x9 cake.
I replace water with very strong coffee
I used melted coconut oil
I used 5 HEAPING tablespoons of cocoa.
Don't be afraid to stir, it won't effect the cake
Then I made a peanut butter...

This is a fantastic recipe. I used rosemary instead of sage and sprinkled garlic powder and salt instead of mashed garlic. ""

I made this recipe twice. The first try I was a little disappointed because I couldn't taste any coconut flavor. The next try I decided to replace coconut milk with coconut cream. What a difference! I was making it for a crowd and was doubling the recipe. I added one whole can of coconut cream and 1 can of water. I also added a handful of cilantr...

These beans are incredible! I've never had baked beans so tasty in my life! I used great northerns and after cooking the beans, added all ingredients to my crockpot and cooked for about 7 hours. I like my beans sweet and these satisfied my sweet tooth. I also made cornbread and a salad to top off a wonderful meal.""

Reviewed Chicken and Dumplings

Feb 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My husband says the best chicken and dumplings he's ever tasted and I agree! The chicken broth alone was outstanding and not too salty for our tastes. The only thing I changed was that I added a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken the sauce more and added an extra 5 minutes time softening the carrots and celery. The dumplings were spo...

Reviewed Creole Shrimp and Lobster Bisque

Feb 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I fixed this as the "soup" part of our 3 course anniversary dinner. It was fantastic! I boiled the shrimp shells in the chicken broth as I was steaming the shrimp and lobster. I also added a little corn starch because I like my bisque on the thick side. It just got better and better with age. The third (and last) day we had it, the flavors were ...

I didn't have self-rising flour so I added 1 tablespoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt to the flour mixture, then baked at 430 degrees for about 12 minutes. I only kneaded the flour gently 4 times and rolled out the dough to about 1/2 inch high. They were light, fluffy and delicious. Thanks Paula""

Outstanding! I followed the recipe exactly as written. I wondered how much lemon juice and zest to use and ended up adding a half a cup of lemon juice and the zest of 2 large lemons. "
