Reviewed Honey Ricotta Cheesecake

I loved the biscotti for the crust and the flavor was great. It was very light and fragrant, however, the ricotta texture didn't fully smooth out even using the processor. "

Dec 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were great! The cake was almost like a fudgy brownie but still very light. The icing had a very nice earl gray taste. Since my family is filled with tea lovers, this recipe was very much enjoyed.""

Reviewed Chocolate Dirt Cupcakes

Nov 6, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made the cupcakes and icing from this recipe and then piped ghosts out of icing on the top since they were for a halloween party instead of the worms and dirt. This recipes is dummy proof. I was in a hurry, misread the recipe, and put the heavy whipping cream in the batter instead of the icing. As soon as I realized it I panicked but the cupcak...

The mashed potatoes are good but it's the marinade that deserves 5 stars. I use it on any type of steak and even chicken. I love it. ""

Sep 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I was encouraged to make this based on all the good reviews but the chicken really disappointed. The only thing we did different was use boneless chicken breast so maybe thats why, but I would not recommend this anyway. There was hardly any flavor and it didn't make that nice orange color on the chicken.""

Reviewed Grilled Pork with Arugula-and-Grape Salad

Jul 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My family loves this! It taste great and smells delicious. My parents are always asking for this and even my brother's girl friend who is a picky eater liked it. The pork chops were tender and they went great with the arugula and blue cheese. It's the perfect dish for spring and summer and it's a definite favorite in our house :) "

These are AMAZING! They aren't visually appealing but they're so moist and yummy that it doesn't matter. I made them in paper cups so they would come out easier and then put the icing just on the top. If you do it that way then you're going to want to half the recipe for the glaze. Everyone who ate these loved them and they are very addicting. I'd...

Reviewed Cheesecake Brownies

Feb 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made these with a friend and they were just ok. The cheesecake part was good but there wasn't enough. The brownies were very flavorful and rich but were also very cakey. It turned out nothing like the picture because the brownie was too thick to swirl and the top browned. With all that said though, they were still good and got eaten in about 2 days....

I was very disappointed with these. the bottoms were very oily and they really didn't have any flavor. The icing was good but the cakes themselves were bland. Even my cousin who loves chocolate and red velvet cake did not care for these. I wouldn't recommend these but anyone looking for a good cream cheese frosting could use this frosting on anyt...

Reviewed Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Jan 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I used semi sweet chocolate chunks instead of white chocolate and it still tasted fine. The dough was easy to handle as long as you kept your hands damp but the cookies themselves were very hard. I tried taking down the baking time but they still weren't very soft or chewy. Overall though they were very yummy :)
