Reviewed roast beef with marsala gravy

Feb 24, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I used what is referred to as a "spoon roast". Someone once told me, while I was grocery shopping, it was the best. That person knew about meat because it is. I followed the recipe closely with the exception of the amount of water and wine. While it cooked, I kept a close eye and when the liquid started to dry, I added a bit more. I have to...

I added a little onion powder and some Goya seasoning. I thought they came out great. My family loved them. From here on I will be using my left over mashed potatoes in to your recipe, Paula. Could not have been easier and taste delish....thanks for the tip.

Reviewed Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Jan 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

After reading all the reviews (some a bit too negative for me to follow this recipe), I've decided to improvise and do my own thing. I have a box of lemon cake mix which I will maybe "doctor" up a bit and use it to make some fine cupcakes. I will them double the cream cheese filling and proceed accordingly. I will be back with the results of my...

Reviewed Basic Potpie Recipe

Dec 30, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

delicious....First of all I used left over beef tenderloin from Christmas dinner so I had an edge from the start. I substituted a can of beef consume and one half jar of beef gravy in place of the beef broth. I did use the white wine and sherry which I think gave the pie is marvelous flavor. I also used mushrooms and frozen (thawed) peas, carrots,...

Dec 17, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I used strawberry preserves instead of jam.....will definitely stock up on jam and make these delicious cookies again. I mixed my preserves with Grand Marnier, yum. The only problem I had with them is that they are so delicious that I ate several "samples". They are going to be part of a cookie tray for Christmas Eve and I know they will be devoured...

Reviewed Apple Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

Nov 29, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Made this for Thanksgiving. Honestly it was just OK. I found the frosting too lemony. If you are going to make it, add just a small amount of lemon juice, and perhaps that would make a difference. Also the cake was extremely moist, I think in part due to the fact that the apples were precooked in the cider. On the other hand the cake made a nice...

Reviewed Perfect Glazed Ham

Oct 17, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

My one and only ham recipe from now on. I have been experimenting with baked ham recipes for more years than I care to admit. I finally hit a "home run" with this one. Ham was so tender and full of flavor. Thank you

I made this recipe both with pieces and chicken breast kabobs. Unfortunately my grill decided not to work so I ended up broiling it on high. It turned out absolutely DELICIOUS. I took the time to marinade this a few hours ahead just as the recipe directed, and I think this is a big part of the success. This will be my favorite summer barbecue c"
