Reviewed Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread from Scratch

Jun 3, 2013 in on Food.com

I registered on Food.com just so I can rate this recipe - 5 stars! I really wanted to make monkey bread because my daughter has never had it. Nearly every recipe I found online used pre-made biscuit dough. I don';t like doing that - I like to make my own. This recipe is perfect! And the turnout was delicious! The only thing I did different was...

Reviewed Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Dec 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

One of the worst cookies I have ever made. Based on reviews, I thought it would be delicious, but I was very disappointed. The texture was not like a cookie, but almost like bread. The flavor of the cookie was just off and the glaze was much too sweet, and nothing special about it"

Reviewed PW's Prime Rib with Rosemary Salt Crust

Dec 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I cannot comment on cook time, as I have my own way of cooking prime rib - 375 for 15 min/per lbs. I also let it come to room temp before putting it in the oven. I did want to try the rub, though, and it was great, but a bit too salty. Next time I would reduce the salt by just a bit. Some of my guests thought it was perfect, and others agreed it w"

Great! I would make this again for a special holiday. It is very easy to make and full of flavor. There is no fuss with these mushrooms, just put them in the pot and let them cook. "

Great recipe with perfect texture for a cinnamon roll! I, too, like other reviewers, used active dry yeast instead of the instant dry yeast. By the time I realized my mistake, it was too late. Luckily I have a nice, big, warm sunny kitchen window, and left it there to rise. Turned out great, even with my mistake. It rose beautifully thank goodnes"

Reviewed Potato-Fennel Gratin

Dec 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I followed the recipe exactly, however, I did not care for it too much because it was overly rich. If I make it again, I would use plain 2% milk vs the cream the recipe recommends. I also felt like there was something missing in terms of flavor, but I can't put my finger on it. I would also recommend using Yukon gold vs the russet potato the ...

What a wonderful soup! I am making this for dinner tonight and it is nearly ready. I just took a quick taste, and this is very tasty! I will definitley make it again, and I did not even have all ingredients on hand - I am missing the pancetta, cheese and fennel and didn't want to run to the store to grab it. I can't wait to try this again when I h"

Super delicious cheesecake! I followed the recipe exactly, and I have no complaints except the cook time, but it could just be my oven. After about 1 hr, I noticed a few wee cracks around the cheesecake. It was barely noticable, but I had to stop baking because I was afraid it was going to get worse. So I turned off the oven, and left the cheeseca"

Nov 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I used this recipe to host my first Thanksgiving dinner - AND this was my first turkey ever. I was so nervous about the turn-out, I couldn't sleep the night before! Haha! But I had nothing to worry about! The turkey was delicious, moist and everyone went back for 2nds and even 3rds! I was worried about the apple cider being too sweet, as my family"

Nov 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this today (Thanksgiving) and took a quick nibble to see what it tasted like. It was wonderful! I did cut down the onion to just one, and omitted the rosemary (I don't like it very much), and I also used 1 1/2 baguettes (vs the 2 the recipe calls for based on reviews that it was too much). I had the perfect amount for my 13.5 lb turkey! Nex"

Great recipe! Even better that I had everything on hand! I did use only skinless chicken breasts (because that is all I had) vs using an entire cut up chicken, and still it turned out great! Even my picky 9 year old ate it! Great flavor and simple to make. "

My daughter and I really enjoyed this pie. It was absolutely delicious, and very easy to make. However, it is very rich, and even though I cut small pieces, alot of my guests left most of their pies on their plate :( I asked a friend what she thought, and she said it was too rich and too sweet - almost gave her a toothache! My daughter and I both "

This is so deliciously excellent! Not a crack in sight like most other cheesecake recipes I have tried! I am so happy! The recipe turned out perfectly and I followed it (almost) exactly - the only thing I varied was the cooktime, like the others. And this is why I rated "4" stars and not "5". I feel if I had not read the reviews, I would have cook"
