Reviewed Florentine Meatballs

Apr 11, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made these twice now and they are amazing! This last time I used 93% FF ground beef instead of turkey - my husband and I liked it better. Instead of frozen spinach, I cooked down a container I had of fresh and chopped it up. I used about 1/4 c. almond meal and 1/4 c. ground crackers instead of breadcrumbs. I baked for 25 minutes to make...

Reviewed Honey Cornbread Muffins

Oct 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was the best cornbread I have made. I used Indian Head corn meal (it is a very finely ground meal). I halved the recipe and cooked in a small glass pyrex pan for 20 minutes at 425. I also substituted the sugar for 2 Tbsp of Splenda and subbed the honey with 1 Tbsp agave nectar, it was perfectly sweet for us."

Aug 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was absolutely delicious. My husband, who absolutely despises fish, said it was one of the best meals I have ever made. I had to make some modifications because we didn't have the ingredients. I subbed white sugar for brown sugar, used regular chili powder and chipotle powder, and smoked paprika when making the rub. I only had red bell pe"

Reviewed Dana's Crispy Coconut Chicken

Dec 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was pretty good. We used Go Lean cereal as the base. I think next time we will mix the cereal and coconut in the food processor, so more coconut will stick to the chicken. Cooked it for at least 20 minutes at 390. ""

Dec 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were pretty good. I modified the recipe a bit. I halved the ingredients and instead of using regular cocoa powder, I used half cocoa powder and half dark chocolate cocoa powder and some white chocolate chips, semi-sweet chips and dark chocolate chips. Mine came out kinda flat and were became crunchy - and I cooked for 10-12 minutes. Any...

Reviewed Whoopie Pies

Mar 20, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these for my boyfriend's birthday and they were a hit. I took advice from others and halved the recipe. I should've quartered it! It made 18 Whoopie Pies. I didn't make all of them as large as they are supposed to be, they were about tablespoon size scoops. I didn't modify the baking ingredients, but I did for the filling. I made a full...

Reviewed Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Mar 20, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought this recipe was turned out perfect! The pancakes were fluffy and not overly dense. I halved the recipe and didn't have any blueberries, so I substituted with a mashed banana and a sprinkle of nutmeg and cinnamon. Definitely making these a regular weekend breakfast!"

Reviewed White Chocolate-Coconut Cookies

Dec 16, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just pulled these cookies out of the oven and they are perfect! I did make some modifications to the recipe (thank you everyone else for your suggestions!) I made a half batch with these adjustments: still used 1 egg, added 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and a tsp of vanilla extract. They turned out soft and flattened just enough. I can't wait until...
