Reviewed Chocolate Mairibars (Gluten Free Energy Bar)

Aug 16, 2013 in null on Food.com

We will be going on a camping trip. I have been eating Paleo, and slowly "weaning" my husband off gluten. He loves coconut and dark chocolate, so I thought these would be perfect. Recipe came together very easy. Great taste. Only difference I made was to add 1 teaspoon of sea salt, and I used almonds. I will cut them into smaller bars as 1 lb of ...

Mar 26, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have been "wanting" to make Pasta Carbonara for many years. Today being short on ideas for dinner, figured I'd try something new. This was perfect. My hubby and I like more sauce on our pasta, so I upped the eggs to 5, and the cheese to 1 2/3c. After I had read other recipes from other sites, I decided to add a cup of pasta water to the pan befo"

Second one of these in a week is now in the fridge for it's overnight stay :
Made to recipe first time, with the exception of adding 3 extra eggs and 1 cup 1/2&1/2, as the mixture didn't even come close to touching the potatoes. Not having seen the episode, not sure how this was presented.

Nov 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really liked this salad. Nice twist on a classic. However, the onion didn't work for me. Perhaps a tablespoon or two of green onion would have been good. Perhaps it was my onion, I would make sure to use a sweet onion or rinse the the onion in the future. I didn't think rinsing a grated onion made any sense. The combo of grapes with the blue che"

Fire up the grill, go back in the house to stretch the dough (store bought or homemade slice the tomato's, get your cheese ready. By then the grill will be hot enough. Great thing about this recipe; you can use any veggie and any cheese. We love garlic, so it is always added, sliced or roasted. Best thing about this recipe, no oven on in the hou...

I make a version of this all the time. I grill my shrimp on the gas grill- personal choice. We love garlic, so in it goes. And people; really? a recipe (not baking) is only a guide. TO TASTE is always an option! Add the lemon juice a little at a time until it is to your liking. Most of the lemon flavor comes from the zest. And believe me lemons "
