I made this recipe for a tea, partly because it has great reviews and also because it looked easy. And it was very easy! I tried both unsalted and salted butter (I made several batches) and had equal success. The dough is beautifully easy to work with. I just scooped the flour, rather than the more proper way of scoop and level and the dough came...

I saw Ina make this on her episode about tea time and thought I just had to make it. It turned out quite delicious! Much like a sweet orange marmalade. I ended up using much of it on Tyler Florence's cheesecake recipe, substituting this for the blueberries. I like the bits of color added by the zest as is, so I just mixed the sugar and zest together...

Used this recipe for the first time ever cooing mussels and it was a HUGE hit! My hubby couldn't stop going back for seconds and thirds and fourths and... Needless to say, he liked it. My 3 year old even said he liked it! I was lacking leeks so I used grilled green onions and didn't have fresh herbs so I used dried, worked great. I made up so...

Oh gosh! These are to die for! Made them because hubby wanted deviled eggs on a whim. I don't think I'll ever make any other... ever! These were so easy and fantastic!""

Made 2 of these up for a Thanksgiving party and they were, to say the least, the talk of the party! So good and very easy. The perfect richness. No need to find another recipe, this one is tops! One guy was comparing it to his gramma's pies, she's from down south and apparently had fantastic pies in her day.""

This was fantastic! I was a little hesitant to follow the recipe exactly because of some of the reviews, but it turned out great. The filling is luxurious and heavy on the tongue (in a very good way) and the meringue, though not typical for the sweet potato pies I've had before, adds a light airiness that perfectly balances the thick, velvetine...

This was very good and VERY rich! A hit at the Christmas party and other events. Definitely need to keep it cool until about 20 minutes before eating or they don't hold shape as well. Will definitely make these again and again!""

These are fantastic! Very moist and rich, but in a good, gimme more way. Even the pickiest person I know who will hardly eat anything was asking if he could take some home with him. The basic recipe, sans blueberries, is very versatile and I have used it as a base for other muffins as well. So good!""

These were great with or without the frosting! Every time I've made them I have gotten nothing but the highest compliments. My only thing is mine tend to be a little crumbly, but that could just be me.""

Oct 5, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I made these in cupcake form for Bible study. Used the ganache to dip the tops of the cupcakes then piped on the butter cream. Actually I changed it up a touch, added 4 tsp of ground coffee to the batter and cut the butter in the butter cream to 3 sticks (1 1/2 c). Anyhow, these are fantastic! So decadent! It was all I could do to keep from ...
