Reviewed pumpkin spice french toast casserole

Oct 5, 2014 on

Clarification/Help needed. Instruction reads "Whisk the eggs, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and salt in large bowl until smooth and well combined. Whisk in the milk and cream. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread slices, making sure that all slices are well coated." Does this mean to combine the egg mixture with the milk and cream mixture...

Easy to make! Flavors that combine savory onions, beans and broth with the smokiness of paprika and touch of sweetness from maple syrup, work so harmoniously. Family and friends enjoyed it at our 4th of July BBQ!

Jan 27, 2014 on

This was easy to make and so full of flavor. I used lean ground turkey instead of beef and it worked just as well. The cognac gave it extra depth. I served it with rice as Sandra Lee suggested, which was great at sopping up the gravy. But I can easily serve this with mashed potato or green beans. Will definitely make it again.

So incredibly easy to make in very little time and it tastes great. I had all the ingredients available, including flat-leaf parsley, one of my favorite ingredients to use. This certainly will be a repeat dish that I make."

Delightful and clever. I wasn't sure about this dish when I saw Sunny make it on tv but I was intrigued with how easy the recipe is to make and with the few ingredients. My crackers turned out absolutely delicious. And addictive! Instead of using plain goat cheese, I bought the herb goat cheese. The combo of the cheese, fresh thyme and lemon zest...

Crunchy! Full of flavors! Before he finished his meal, my husband asked that we make this dish a regular recipe in our household. I took the suggestion of Foamheart and instead of using eggs, I used Vegenaise mayo. It was a great success. I didn't have corn flakes so I used panko instead. Worked just as well.""

Dec 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Full of flavors that work so well together: the saltiness of the kalimata olives that I had on hand, turmeric (love cooking with this spice!) and the citrus from the lemon that gives this dish layers and depth. Didn't have couscous so ate it with steamed rice. The sauce is simply delicious and the rice was great for sopping up the sauce. I didn't...

Aug 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I knew as soon as I saw this episode that I had to make this dish and I'm happy I did. It was so simple and just my kind of dessert. The only thing I would do differently next time is add more cornstarch. My pudding didn't thicken to the consistency of a flan as Claire compared it to. Maybe it was because I used 2% milk instead of whole milk?...

Delightful! Easy to make and they were perfect little appetizers for a picnic at a winery. Using the puff pastry was brilliant. And with the extra pastry, I just cut out a couple square pastries stuffed them with the cream cheese and poblano. They didn't look cute like the other half moon empanadas but they tasted great just the same. These were a"

Reviewed Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Feb 5, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Absolutely tasty and easy to make. I love the dry mix of fresh ground black pepper, garlic powder and especially kosher salt, which seems to give the sweet potato fries more depth. I followed Sandra Lee's tip on pre-heating the baking pan before baking the sweet potato and they came out crispy on the outside but nice and soft on the inside. Loved...

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

Terrific, alternative way to healthier "fried chicken". Very easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly, plus 1 more seasoning (paprika) to the panko crumbs/cayenne/salt & pepper and the chicken turned out great! Even with the skin removed from my drumbstick and thighs, the panko baked on beautifully, adding a nice crisp to the pieces. Will definitely...

Reviewed Quinoa Pilaf in Lettuce Cups

Oct 11, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I like that this recipe showed me a different way I can use quinoa, which I love to cook with and eat. I found the taste to be a bit boring for an Indian spin of rice pilaf. The spices didn't add much to the flavor - maybe it required bigger measurements than what the recipe called for? I added a Trader Joe dipping sauce and it turned out fine. I'll...
