Reviewed Chocolate Cheesecake

Dec 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I honestly don't understand any negative reviews - this cheesecake recipe is all that you could ask for! The smooth, silky texture is perfect and the rich chocolate flavor decadent. I had to play with the sauce portion - adding a few more melted chocolate chips to thicken it a bit. I ended up thickening it a little too much, so I'm not sure it w"

Reviewed Crab and Avocado Duet

Aug 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I played with this recipe quite a bit because I wanted to make it as a larger dinner salad. I had a lettuce base with some slivered red peppers; I topped the base with the avocado and crab. Since I had the lettuce, I mixed up a little extra lemon juice, Dijon, oil, and white vinegar to create a simple dressing to drizzle over the lettuce. The s"

Reviewed Ooey-Gooey Stuffed Cupcakes

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

These were okay, but definitely lacking in the area of presentation and textures. My mom used to make similar cupcakes, but hers turned out with the white, cream cheese filling displayed in the center of rich chocolaty goodness. For this recipe, the filling sinks to the bottom. You're left to tell your guests that there really is cream cheese ...

Reviewed Tomato Feta Pasta Salad

May 31, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is as good as people are saying in their reviews! The flavors are excellent together, the salad is moist, and it sure beats any other pasta salad recipe I've tried recently!

Like some of the other reviewers, I added quartered artichokes. I used feta that had basil and dried tomatoes in it, and I used half whole-wheat...

Reviewed Asian Grilled Salmon

Great, easy salmon recipe. Love the flavor of the mustard and soy sauce. I broiled my salmon for about 10 minutes instead of grilling, and it turned out great. I'll definitely use this recipe again.

Reviewed Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze

Dec 22, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm a huge coffee cake fan, and I really like this recipe. My stomach doesn't handle sour cream well, so I substituted plain yogurt. It was still delicious! The only thing I might do differently next time is lighten up on the glaze. I only used half of the glaze that I made, and I still felt like I was drowning my coffee cake in it. Otherwise,...

I agree with the reviews that say this curry is very bland. Even with doctoring, it doesn't have great flavor. I won''t use this recipe again.
