Reviewed Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Dec 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Not really the texture of a traditional cookie. Not chewy or crunchy but super moist and cake like. Its like a really flattened cake than a cookie and doesn't look very presentable. You can't really stack these as they will get stuck. However, they tasted much better than they look. If you prefer a more typical cookie shape, thicken the dough by r"

This dish sounds like a great idea for lunch but I did not care for the dressing at all. It did not taste right and was lacking something. "

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a family favorite. We've made this several times for potlucks and get togethers and everyone loves it. The cheese is a bit stinky but that's sort of what makes it a gourmet mac and cheese recipe and not the stuff from the box."

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've never had this before so I didn't know what to expect. The flan and cake did not neatly separate so the flan part isn't like what you get when you have flan by itself. It mixes a little with the cake. I had to bake it much longer than the recipe says and poked it until it didn't seem raw on the inside. It tastes better than it looks. Although"

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I did not include the bay leaf, serrano chile, or peas and it still came out very good. I was short on fresh tomatoes so I used a little bit of canned tomatoes which gave the liquid a darker red color. I was also short on broth so I used water and added tomato chicken bouillon. The main thing is to have 2 parts liquid to one part rice. The pureed "

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Lacked taste and I didn't care for the texture as it wasn't very spreadable. I made this for Christmas and it was barely eaten. The recipe doesn't say what to do with the avocado but you scoop it out and stick it in the blender along with the other ingredients. "

Reviewed Shredded Spicy Chicken Tostadas (Tinga

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I omitted the chorizo and used dry herbs and it was delicious. Could be served with tortillas or tostadas - whichever you prefer. I prefer the crunch of the tostadas with this recipe. I also topped it with a little shredded cabbage and sliced avocados. I used the canned chipotles in adobo sauce and it came out pretty spicy but fine for those who l"

Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I initially used a small scooper but the cookies came out too big. Instead, use a small spoon and your fingers to form the dough balls. The cookies look best when small so aim for 3/4" to no more than 1" in diameter of the dough balls. Then use you index finger to make the impressions. I tried to use the jam without the liquor and it looked like a"

Very good flavor, easy to make and very healthy. One of our favorite soups to make. You can substitute the rice for leftover pasta. If you think you will have leftovers, do not put the rice or pasta in the soup as it will absorb too much liquid overnight. Instead put the rice in the in the bowls as you serve it. You may also need more broth when y"

Quick and easy appetizer, plus its light and relatively healthy. I would reduce the garlic and then add more after tasting if necessary."
