Reviewed Cake and Spoon's Zucchini Cake with Lemon Glaze and Walnuts

22 minutes ago in Recipes on Cooking Channel

Delicious! This tastes more like a lemon cake than a zucchini cake, make sure you like the taste of lemon. I think the combo is fantastic. I used a total of 3 medium lemons for all the zest and the juice; I used a little shy of 1/4C zest in the cake just because I was concerned that it could have been a typo...but it's not! If you are not "

UNBELIEVABLY GOOD! I only had 1C of cream on hand so I used that with 3C of whole milk, still super creamy, I really didn't think it suffered at all. I also used truffle oil instead of the truffles. This is so heavenly, I couldn't stop saying YUMMMM. I saw Melissa use Scott's recipe and make the polenta in a crock pot, I will try that next time....

This was good but I probably won't make it again...I prefer the flavor and texture of a baked cheesecake. The recipe states all milk chocolate but on the show she said 100g dark chocolate and the rest milk chocolate, which is what I did. I would not recommend using all milk chocolate, I think you need the dark or else it would be too sweet. "

I agree - love the bars, hate the website. I have written several times to FN about the website and even asked for a reply - no response. they obviously don't care what we think and don't read the responses from viewers.

Reviewed summer salad with scallion pesto and scallops

Jul 9, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

A very good recipe, solid four star and maybe a bit higher since it's a healthy recipe. I reduced the olive oil to cut some calories but I don't think this changed the flavor. I would make it again. I grilled the veggies on the outdoor grill and the scallops in my grill pan, I might do those on the outdoor grill as well next time.

Reviewed roast pork tenderloin with charred chimichurri

Jun 22, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is AMAZING! I didn't have sherry vinegar so I used white wine vinegar instead...since I plan to make this over and over, I will pick up some sherry vinegar for next time and see if it makes a difference. Absolutely delicious - just don't over cook the pork, that is the one way you could mess this up.

I love every one of GZ's recipes and this one is no exception. I think he may be my new favorite chef! I used the feta instead of the ricotta salata - added it at the end, to answer the poster's question. I subbed kalamata olives for the nicoise and they were fine. Worth making. More quality cooking shows like this one, FN!!!

Reviewed cinnamon baked doughnuts

May 23, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Another fantastic recipe from Ina! I used a Wilton pan and got 17 doughnuts filling them 3/4 full. Don't overfill or the hole will close up. Wipe off any batter that drips on the center as you fill them. Mine baked for 15 minutes. I dipped them only once in the butter and cinnamon sugar, no need to do both sides. Excellent! Will make these again...
