Reviewed Gnocchi With Squash and Kale

Delicious, made me never want to buy store bought ever ever again. It is a little time consuming to roll each piece out and get them to look nice, I also used a pizza cutter and my orange butt shaped end would roll pointy as i cut them so i had to go back and reshape them after they were cut, but definitely delicious and consistency perfect.

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

I make this recipe EVERY fall, love it so much, instead of putting nuts and raisins in the mix, I usually just buy a pecan raisin bread, use about 7-8 cups of that and then 2-3 cups of pound cake mixed together, SOO yummy. I also always use the left over candied ginger for Ina's Ultimate Ginger Cookies :) look forward to it every fall."

I made this recipe directly as written and kristi I think you made a mistake and put the rum gelatin in the cake, it goes in the whipped cream. The cake is more like a sponge cake, but its delicious, no flavor is more overwhelming than the other and they balance each other very well, and the desert is both light and rich at the same time, wonderf"

I am a huge fan of parsnips and was afraid this soup wouldn't hold up to my standard of how parsnips should taste, but this was magnificient, ditch the ham and top it with cheese and croutons! Btw watch the honey, do not wanna overdo that.""

Very tasty, salty, sweet, and has a bit of a kick. Delicious. Definitely use yams though for that orange color, if you use white sweet potatoes it comes out looking like brown baby food...""

Dec 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Just in reference to the comment below, for peppermint flavoring your best bet is peppermint extract, you won't run into any troubles with consistency with it. Also, I think this is so much better if you add a layer of dark chocolate underneath the white chocolate to counter-balance the super sweet white chocolate. Try it and you won't be disap...

This is now requested in my household for Thanksgiving every year as well, it is fantastic. It can come out salty if you are not careful, I don't follow brining instructions in recipes anymore, however, because the results can be so variable, I just follow "brining basics". For this recipe I use the same seasoning for the brine, but I use a qua...

Easy and so good, I do a lot of cooking and my boyfriend, who is very indecisive, was immediately raving that this was his favorite pork recipe I ever made. By the way, if you enjoy that ginger flavor, try adding some ginger powder on of the chops before you put them in the oven.""

No doubt a very tasty sandwich! However, a little time-consuming for lunch, and not quite substantial enough for dinner. So, if you have a leisure day, go for it.""

Yea I'm not crazy about essence seasoning either, nice n easy touch is instead of grilling, heat some oil in a pan, toss in a little bit of red pepper flakes to get some flavor in the oil and sear them quickly, add some fresh herbs (whatever you like) as soon as they are done. Yum.""
