Reviewed Basic Pizza Dough

Jan 13, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This has become my go to recipe for a good pizza dough. The texture is great, crispy on the outside, light and moist (not dried out) on the inside. I've already used it for calzones also!"

Reviewed Chicken and Herbed Dumplings

Dec 8, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a keeper! Great flavor and textures, a true comfort food to warm the heart. I used things I had on hand. I was concerned about the dumplings, I had to use dried herbs (I opted to use parsley flakes and dill weed) I made them as instructed and they turned out great! This is one of those recipes that I feel if you omit the white wine it "

Hit a home run on this one! Moist and flavorful! I didn't have any bread crumbs so I subbed old fashion oatmeal...I really liked this one, THANK YOU!""

Jan 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Great way to use left over baked potatoes! I crumbled some bacon on top, to me, cheese and bacon love each other and being from the dairy state, cheese works with just about anything! Thanks!""

Sorry Alton! I love trying your recipes first because they are well thought out and usually don't comment when you hit the mark, but this time, SALT is the issue! I will probably make them again and can only hope that they don't need the salt to that extent. I feel that it hides true flavor produced by the egg and milk. Will give them anothe...

Reviewed Banana Nut Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

Jan 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Paula, been watching you for years, or at least before Michael and don't remember seeing you make this cake. It was excellent, moist, tender, light and tasted like bananas! I was worried about the cinnamon but you can hardly taste it. It did taste like a cake not a bread, totally enjoyed it. I baked it in the 3-9" pans but since there is only...

Reviewed Roasted Radishes and Carrots

Jan 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love radishes and wasn't sure what to expect, I didn't care, I was looking for another way to use radishes. I followed the recipe as directed and I saw you make them on your show but it was total disappointment. Not sure if it was the radishes I used or what but they had no flavor! The carrots where nice and sweet but eating the radishes whe...

Reviewed Chocolate Truffles

Jan 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Home run Alton! This was my first time making a truffle. This process is somewhat messy and using gloves made it easier. I also tried the melon ball scoop and didn't care for it so I used a teaspoon but was careful to keep the portions about the same as size as the melon ball scoop. You do need to do this quickly or the chocolate will melt in...

Reviewed Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

May 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Paula, I never made red velvet anything so thought I would check out the cupcakes and see how I liked them. I read the other reviews and was a little leary however, I gave it a shot...They are really GOOD! I did increase the cocoa powder to 2 Tablespoons and added a little almond extract to the frosting. They are not oily, or dry...Thank you fo"

Reviewed The Lady's Warm Potato Salad

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

Paula has another keeper here! I did hold back on the seasoning salt just a bit and added sliced radishes and grape tomatoes. It was very creamy and the lemon pepper really brought out nice flavor. It was great with the smoked prime rib."

Reviewed Bacon and Sage Potato Pancakes

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

I don't usually shred my potatoes, I was putting everything into the blender which gives it more of a pancake texture. I followed Sunny's recipe and loved the savory flavors and the texture of the pancakes. We've made them a couple times now and each time my sweetie made sure we didn't have any leftovers! Thanks Sunny:)"

Reviewed Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Mustard-Dill Dressing and Black Olive Yogurt Sauce

Feb 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I didn't care for the shrimp with the mustard-dill dressing alone, I felt it was a little too acidic, but when you dip them into the black olive yogurt sauce the flavors just blended very nicely together, to me they did need each other. Also, I had to sub sour cream for the yogurt (darn grandkids)which seemed to work, so will have to try it with...
