Reviewed Pumpkin Bars

Oct 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this based on the 5 star rating, and endless reviews. Never made any pumpkin cake / pie from scratch, so for it being a great success the first go around is amazing. I love the texture, and how simple it is to make. People had reviews on how it was under cook in the middle, but mines came out perfect. I lowered the temperature from 350 to 3"

Reviewed Easy Cheese Danish

Oct 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I was inspired to make this when I watched Giada make her Chocolate cheese Danishes. I preferred the traditional cheese Danish, so I settled with Ina's recipe. I cut the recipe in half, to test it out, being that it's my first time making cheese Danishes. I cut the pastry sheet however into 6 pieces instead of 4. I figured four would make it over"

Ina's recipes never seem to disappoint. I never made pound cake from scratch, so I was a little iffy. But this recipe is amazing. It tastes like the freezer Sandra Lee pound cakes you find at grocery stores for 5 dollars a loaf, but this cake tastes home made of course. People found it to sugary by reading the reviews, but I didn't. I followed the"

Reviewed Old-Fashioned Meat Loaf- A.K.A 'Basic' Meat Loaf

Jul 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I never made meatloaf before, and this recipe was not only top rated but also the most simple recipe for meatloaf. Its okay, but not tasty as everyone is raving about. I followed the recipe to the T, even the glaze. I find it too sweet. To me, it needed something to stand out... It just tasted bland. "

Reviewed Beatty's Chocolate Cake

Jul 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I never made a cake from scratch before, so I was a little hesitant to try this recipe. I've been looking at this recipe for almost a year now, but again, always changed my mind at the last minute and used store bought cake mix. Today, I challenged myself to make this cake. It took me awhile to prep and bake it, only because Im a perfectionist. It"

Reviewed Macaroni and Cheese

Jul 8, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I was a tad bit disappointed that it wasn't as good as all the reviews had made it seem like. It's okay, but not worthy over a important dinner such as Thanksgiving or Christmas. It was soupy still, even after having time to cool down. It looked good in the casserole dish, but taste wise, I thought it lacked flavor. It was the only dish at Christm"

Reviewed Good Eats Roast Turkey

Jul 8, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this turkey for my Christmas family dinner, and it was amazing. I never cooked a turkey before, so for me it was very frightening. I did all that follows, except I substituted veg stock for chicken stock, since I couldn't find it anywhere and I didnt feel like making it from scratch. I was iffy about soaking the turkey in the brine for that"

Reviewed Cin-ful Peach Cobbler

I usually don't write reviews, but i think this recipe earned the effort to register to make a review. The crumble is amazing! The best cobbler recipe yet! Everyone enjoyed it when I made it on Fourth of July. The whole pan vanished within minutes, many came back for seconds! Though I did omit dried cranberries, it still was delish! I did find it "
