Reviewed Banana Cupcakes With Honey-Cinnamon Frosting

8 days ago in null on Food.com

Very good cupcakes. Followed the recipe as show, but did add a bit of cinnamon to the batter, though I didn';t notice a difference. Also, the frosting just balled up, never creamed so I had to add a bit of water to the mix, then was perfect. The cupcakes could easily be eaten on their own, but the frosting adds a nice sweet moisture to the...

Reviewed 30-Minute Seasoned Sweet Potato / Yam Fries (Baked Not Fried)

Jul 20, 2014 in null on Food.com

These are very good fries with little effort or ingredients. The fries were very sweet but I attribute that to the ingredients letting the sweetness of the potatoes do all the work. I followed the directions but did do for 15 min per side, and then to broil for about 3-4 minutes at the end because I like my fries crispy. I burned the tips of s...

Jul 20, 2014 in null on Food.com

This was not an extraordinary sandwich, but it was good. As good as any ham and cheese sandwich on toasted buttered bread would be. I think perhaps the egg to milk ratio was a little high on the milk, so my bread didnt get very "frenchy". I did use italian bread, so at least is crisped up and didnt get soggy. It was a good grilled cheese with...

Wow, this is a very forgiving dish! I tried to change it up just a bit to make it healthier but messed up in so many ways...and it still came out good! First used 8 oz. Shitaki Spaghetti, and egg whites (but didnt have enough! so only used 1/2 a cup instead of 1 c (woops, so added just a bit of milk and water), then my onions were bad so used o...

Reviewed Broiled Monte Cristo Sandwich

Jun 23, 2014 in null on Food.com

This was okay. The only think I have to compare it to is the Bennigans Monte Cristo, and while it had sort of the same taste, it was not the same texture. It was kinda soft and bland. I did happen to have some Raspberry Preserves so I ate it with that and that helped a lot, but, I don';t think I would make again. - Also, I double the reci...

The directions were easy to follow and the food was easy to prepare. The only change I made was being unsure how spicy the red pepper sauce would make it, so I used very little. The chicken fried up nicely...but boy was it SALTY!!!! Luckily, we were able to remove the skin and still enjoy the meat. It did make me sad though that we were not a...

Great meal...and so easy, you are wondering why you didnt think of it yourself...with that said, though, I think the texas toast is what made it so yummy! Very filling - but you may wish you had been out working on the farm already for a few hours before eating it because it is full of fat! (another reason it tastes so good!!) Oh, eggs did tur...

Sep 6, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I had a hard time with this. I got my romaine from the Farmers Market so they had already cut off the leaves, so outside of rubberbanding the bottom together, it was hard to keep together. After that, I put too much olive oil on it....I went through a lot of leaves before getting something to show grill marks by then everything was just wet wit...

Sep 6, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My beans never cooked. After soaking overnight I started them in a crock pot a couple hours before putting them in a pot on the oven. I have never had problems with beans before so not sure what happened. Dinner came and went but by the end of the night I just threw the beans away. I will note that they smelled really good, so it was a huge d...

Flavor wise - GREAT! Worth the work - well I had a hard time. The pastry I got was stuck together after thawing and I lost 4 potential pastries - for the second sheet, I put back in freezer for just a few minutes and it was soooo much easier to unfold. The creation of jam and pastry were easy but price vs creation - it was a wash. Since stil...

Great dish. I have struggled to find variations for cooking Salmon and never would have tried poaching...but it was so easy, and the sauce was too. Best thing is that there is no such thing as "dinner getting cold." We served at room temperature and it was great!"

Yum! Sweet, light and refreshing! The grenadine is a sweet kick at the bottom so might be better to mix it altogether."
