Reviewed Throwdown's Toasted Coconut Cake with Coconut Filling and Coconut Buttercream

Nov 27, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I made this for my sister's birthday. She is a big coconut fan; I am not. Surprisingly though, I really, really enjoyed this cake. I didn't use vanilla beans though (too expensive); I just added an entire teaspoon of extract for the cake and an entire teaspoon of extract for the filling. It turned out great. The buttercream is so rich; I almost don't...

I have made this several times, and as long as you can handle your grill temperature (mine is fully charcoal and a bit hard to manage), this will be great! I needed some help to pile everything on the grill so as not to cook the crust for too long; teamwork is great! This pizza is delicious.

I don't cook Asian food very often, so this was a new one for me. I was so hungry as I smelled this cooking, and eating it was delicious. A bit messy because the lettuce leaves crack under the pressure, but so good!

Reviewed Honey-Mustard Chicken and Apples

Nov 22, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I bought everything for this recipe, but when I started cooking I realized that I didn't have bone-in, skin-on thighs . . . mine were skinless and boneless. I decided to make it anyway, and it turned out great. I love the flavor of the mustard with the sweetness/tartness of the apple. I served it with rice, but it could definitely stand alone.

This is amazing! Made this twice so far, and absolutely love it. There is no reason to go to a Mexican restaurant when you can make these chimichangas at home.

Reviewed Slow-Cooker Squash Stew

Nov 22, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I could not find swiss chard, so I substituted with spinach. I honestly don't know what swiss chard even tastes like, but the spinach was delicious in the stew.

The squash is hard to peel and dice, but I have heard (though haven't tried) that you can microwave it for two minutes first to make it easier to cut. It was worth the...

Nov 22, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I didn't have ground pork on hand, so I substituted with ground beef. I used pizza dough in a can, though I think homemade would be preferable.

It was delicious, and I will definitely make again!
