Reviewed Kheema: Indian Ground Beef with Peas

May 30, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I make Pakistani/Indian food for my husband because he is Paki and he loves it. He asked for keema and so I tried this recipe with high hopes. Unfortunately it was not very good, it wasn't uneatable but he did not like it and said it was nothing like authentic keema. I guess this is more of like a toned down American version. I will not use this a"

Reviewed Banana Walnut Bread

Apr 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This banana bread is delicious! After trying one other banana bread recipe that was highly rated on this site (and reviewed it. It was good but very dry and not amazing), I continued my search for the perfect banana bread. This recipe IS the best! Highly recommend it! The only complaint is that it doesn't make a lot, the loaf is smaller than other"

Reviewed Double Blueberry Muffins

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

These blueberry muffins tasted very good, but the texture was not. As many reviewers have said it's a very dense and thick muffin. I mixed it by hand and did as little as possible as advised to not over mix so it wouldn't be dense. But it didn't make a difference, it still came out very dense. I love the taste but it's not a fluffy light muffin li"

Great recipe, easy to make and tasty. The garlic flavor was good and not overpowering. I had to add a little extra salt, but just taste it when you're done and see if you need to add a shake of salt in. The recipe is very good, I will make this again."

Reviewed Mac and Cheese

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

Delicious recipe! My husband isn't even a big fan of pasta but he loved this! I loved it too. It is so much better than the packaged mac and cheese. You can really taste the quality of this, it's so good. It's easy to make and easy to refrigerate and heat up again (being only 2 of us we had plenty left to save). I highly recommend this. The only c"

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

My husband is Pakistani and I am not so I don't know anything about all the indian/pakistani food. But he loves it so... I attempted to make this. There is no picture and I've never seen it or heard of it so I just took a shot and followed the recipe. Fantastic! I don't eat spicy food at all but of course my husband being Paki does. He loved it! H"

Reviewed Lentil Soup

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

Very disappointing. I followed the recipe but I made my own vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Maybe that is what the issue was but the flavor was just nothing special. The soup had very little flavor. The pasta didn't seem to taste right in it either. My husband and I both had the flu so I didn't have the energy to make anything else after"

Reviewed Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

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

This is my first time making oatmeal raisin cookies and it came out great. My husband loved them, he brought some to work and they were eaten in a few minutes he said! Tonight I made them with cranberries (oatmeal cranberry cookies I guess they'd be called). So both ways come out very yummy. I made the mistake tonight of making larger cookies, I w"

Reviewed Flour's Famous Banana Bread

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

I really liked this banana bread and so did my husband. It wasn't the best I've had unfortunately, I followed the recipe exactly (I did the beating by hand for 10 minutes too) but it seems to be a little too dry. I prefer a little more moisture in my bread. The flavor is good but again it's not amazing. I would make this again but will keep my eye"

Reviewed Pumpkin Bread

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

This is the best pumpkin bread I've had! I bake it for my husband and I. Also for his in-laws who don't like many desserts but they loved this! Every time I make it it's gone so quickly.
I use 15/16 oz of canned pumpkin, cook on 350 degrees for 1 hour 30mins, sometimes a little longer. It's always perfect. Highly recommend this one!"
