Reviewed fresh corn tomato salad

Jun 28, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I make this salad every summer when the tomatoes are fresh and the corn is sweet and the basil is abundant. I can't imagine anyone NOT liking this simple, fresh delicious side!

Feb 5, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is absolutely delicious. The edge pieces are soooo good, with the raspberry jam carmelized on them, and the inside pieces are soft and delicious. As other reviews have said, they must be 100% cool to cut. I'm not sure why other reviews have said that they are "bland." They are a peanut butter-lovers dream come true. And if you...

Our entire family loved this, kids and all. Make sure to toast the spices as it is imperative for this recipe to taste right. We did back off the salt a bit, and because of the kiddies, only used 2 peppers. It still has a good kick, and with some samosas and poppadoms with lime pickles - this was a great way to chase off the first chill of fall!"

This is excellent - throwing in the limes at the end is the key to this recipe. Tasty and healthy - yum!""

Reviewed Royal Icing

Sep 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I used powdered egg whites/warm water, and this turned out great. For the icing a cake question, NO, you would not use royal icing to frost a cake. Royal icing dries quite hard/brittle, but it IS a great icing to use for string work, for "hair" on fondant figures or "fur" on animals. Royal icing is mostly used on sugar cookies. This recipe wo...

Reviewed Chicken and Broccoli Stir-fry

Aug 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is another winner, and as other reviews have stated, adding mushrooms, pea pods, water chestnuts and maybe even some carrots would make it even better. I doubled the marinade and poured it all in at the end and brought to a boil which made a delicious brown sauce. If you omit the pepper flakes, I would cut back on the sugar, but with the h...

Reviewed Buttermilk Baked Chicken

Aug 29, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

If you follow the directions and bake it on a rack, you will get crispy, moist, unbelievably flavorful chicken. We took off the skin before marinating, even though we love crispy chicken skin and my daughter didn't even realize we had removed it. It's that good. This is also a much healthier version of fried chicken, and the entire family pref...

Reviewed Turkey Burger

Aug 29, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These are the most delicious turkey burgers in the entire world. They are moist, and a bit on the soft side, so make sure to cook them in a pan or griddle. We adjusted the chili paste to 2 teaspoons for our kids, and we all thought that the seasoning was perfect. They are a great option if you are watching your weight (sans the cheese). We se...

Aug 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I cannot imagine anyone ever giving these truly super yummy cookies less than five stars! We used 1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour and 1 cup of regular, and the consistency was superb. As another review mentioned, DO NOT skip the sea salt (we used Maldon salt). It truly makes the cookies (and if you don't have sea salt, don't sub with table sa...

Reviewed Ham-and-Spinach Spuds

Jun 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a fantastic base recipe. We added more ham, a teaspoon of grainy mustard, and a good grinding of black pepper (instead of cayenne), plus we put the grated gouda IN the sauce, rather than on top of the potatoes. This is a great way to get kids to eat spinach, and it would likely be as good with steamed, chopped broccoli. Delicious!"

Why, hello deliciousness! I did add a 1/2 tsp. dijon to the vinaigrette, but it would have been just as good had I followed the directions exactly. REAL maple syrup is a must!"

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

I use only one cup of sugar, but I am still giving this recipe five stars because it is so forgiving. I turned away for a few seconds too long, and it came to a boil and STILL didn't curdle - that will give any fruit curd five stars! It works well to simply melt the butter, tip in the sugar and zest, whiz in the eggs with a hand beater and finally...

I only use 3/4 cup sugar, but I am still giving this lemon curd recipe five stars because, as far as lemon curd goes, it is so forgiving. I melt the butter in my pan, then dump in the sugar and beaten eggs and finally the zest and juice. I have also used lime zest and juice (great filling for a coconut cake). I've even forgotten this on the stove...

I saw this recipe years ago, and it is as delicious now as it was back then. Very quick and easy to make with ingredients that we always have on hand. This tastes better than any fried OR oven friend chicken I've ever had, and it is great with a green veggie and parmesan basil buttermilk mashed potatoes!
