Reviewed Buffalo Chicken Dip

Jan 8, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This was great. I had to use the soft cream cheese in a tub rather than the block but it worked just fine. I used 3 cooked chicken breast and since I didn't have celery, I used a couple shakes of celery seed.

Nov 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was wonderful! I didn't want to use alcohol, so I substituted orange juice. It worked beautifully. Also, I didn't have walnuts, so I replaced them with ground hazelnuts. I guess that makes this a very adaptable recipe. I think it would be great with other fruits such as peaches or pears, but the plums were awesome! Forgive me for reviewi"

Jun 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The perfect "GO TO" Vanilla buttercream! I love vanilla so I added about 1/2 teaspoon extra and made sure to get some of the vanilla bean seeds from the extract to give the frosting that "real vanilla" look."

Jan 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was so easy and is going in my "go-to recipe" binder. It uses only kitchen staples and can be thrown together at the last minute. The cake was very moist and balanced well with the streusel topping. I did make a few changes that others suggested.
*used butter rather than vegetable shortening
*used brown sugar rather than...

This was AWESOME!!! It was very easy and came together very quickly for me. I did beat the egg yolk and sugar for a long time until it was very thick. I would also say that it easily makes 3-4 servings. I used a hand held mixture and when I added the milk, I had a very frothy mixture. Once I put it back in the pan and stirred with a wisk it t...

Dec 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Looks just like the picture! ....and really not that difficult. I was looking for another cookie for my Christmas cookie tray that would add some eye appeal. This will do the trick. The cookie is tasty but not overly sweet. I didn't find the dough difficult to work with. I rolled it out while it was soft and the put it in the fridge for abou...

Reviewed Traditional Apple Pie

Nov 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was wonderful! The filling was exactly what my husband wanted in an apple pie. I cut back on the sugar like other people suggested. I used 3/4 cup of white sugar and a whole cup of brown sugar. Next time I think I will cut back on the brown sugar too. I added a good squeeze of lemon juice for some freshness. I also added a 1/8 teaspoonf...

Oct 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Yummy! I cut the recipe in half and had plenty to frost a two layer 9 inch cake very generously and still had some left over. Not a problem as it was hard to keep the family out of the bowl while I was mixing. For Rachel, I had the same confusion you did. I mixed the egg whites, sugar, etc. just until combined and the heated the mixture as dire...

This is a wonderful creation!! The flavor and texture were fantastic. Like others, it was done done in about 1 hour and 10 minutes. The only change I made was to use 2 cups all purpose flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour and I was very pleased with the result. Next time rather than using honey, I think I will try maple syrup in the glaze. I will...

This was really quite good for a microwave cake! Perfect for those sudden chocolate cravings; especially when you don't want to have a whole cake in the house. I took some of the suggestions of other people and added a pinch of both baking soda and baking powder. I also used melted butter instead of the oil. It certainly made enough batter for"
