Oct 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I made this Fried Chicken for my family's Fourth of July celebration, and everyone loved it. The rub is amazing, providing just the right amount of flavor. My mom, who is known for her fried chicken, even commented that the "torch" had been passed for the best fried chicken in the family!"

This was my first go 'round with any sort of custard dessert. Made it for my Mom-in-Law for her birthday, and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY! Smooth, velevetty and not too sweet, it's a great alternative to cake or other heavier desserts. There's nothing quite like the first crack through the sugar after it's been torched.""

Feb 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I made this recipe for my hubby for Valentine's Day, and it was a big hit! I used pre-made pizza crust, and shredded parmesean cheese, so I only used 1/2 c of that. Also, the sauce measurements in the recipe make a LOT of sauce, and if you like light sauce on pizza like we do, you may want to cut the recipe a bit. The scallops add a nice, swee...

Absolutely perfect for a Special Occassion meal as the ingredients are pricey. We used prosciutto rather than the pate. The Duxelles was delicious, and my nephew, who doesn't like mushrooms at all, enjoyed this dish thoroughly. I made Giada's Champagne Risotto and Alton's Horseradish Cream Sauce to accompany this wonderful dish. ""

These bars were a wonderful change from the super-sweet boxed mixes, but I was anticipating the same sweetness, so these were a bit of a surprise. The recipe was easy and outside of the baking time, these really take no time at all. Best of all, you've got a whole 9x13 pan of lemony goodness to enjoy!"

This light, delicious dessert is perfect for any occassion. The first time I made it, I followed this recipe to the letter, but as I put it together, I started thinking about more adventurous ingredients. The second time, rather than strawberries and pineapple, I used whole raspberries and chunked and drained canned peaches. The flavors of these...

Cranberry Cheesecake anyone?
That's exactly what this dish reminded me of. Besides being absolutely delicious, it was SO easy to make and everyone at the table was asking for the recipe.
I might recommend doubling the recipe if you have a large group of people, but the cream cheese makes the flavor of this dish very rich, so...

This recipe is delicious and a great substitute for the buttery, marshmallow-laden sweet potato casserole that my mother always had on the table for Thanksgiving. The fact that it's a reasonably healthy dish is just icing on the cake!
Better than all of that, if you have a loved one who doesn't appreciate the wonders of Sweet Potatoes,...
