Reviewed Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

Mar 12, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe has been around for at least 48 years. These are called Chocolate Crinkles, and they are less "gooey" and more like a fudge brownie. These cookies are best eaten within a couple of days, or frozen to keep them chewy. I made these out of one of my first cook books, the Betty Crocker's Cooky Book. It is a fantastic cook book that h"

Jan 6, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is very close to the peanut soup at Kings Arms Tavern in Williamsburg and at the Mount Vernon Inn restaurant. And - duh- it is rich! That's why they serve very small amounts - I'm not sure that they give you a whole cup. The Kings Arms Tavern's recipe has you putting the soup though a sieve - but today I bet they use a food processor! I m...

Reviewed Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Jan 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Carrot cake is dense to start with - add whole wheat flour and they were like lead bricks. I also didn't like the faux cream cheese. I'd rather save my calorie intake and have the real deal. Especially for a Birthday celebration - which is why I made these. ""

This is a review of this frosting recipe which I have used before. I'm sorry that some people have had problems with this frosting recipe. But it's a Hersey's TYPE classic. Very simple - and easy. Try 1 to 2 tablespoons of hot water instead of cream. Cream can cause things to stiffen up. Look up some others and compare (sometimes Hersey's ...

Jul 19, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My one start rating must have insulted someone on my previous review cause Food Network removed it. But maybe someone had misinterpreted my review, so I'm rewriting it. As I, and many others, have stated before - I tried this recipe in a slow cooker and found that the receipt had turned out ok, and I would probably make this again. I opted to "

Wonderful flavors! But that picture doesn't match the recipe. You have two or more layers, and that dish in the picture couldn't be much more than a inch or a inch and a half! "

Ok so the receipe was good in a slow cooker. But about 20 years ago I had a pressure cooker blow up, and I've never - ever - NEVER tried a pressure cooker again! And I really don't care if they've changed and are better now. Cleaning up a ceiling - just once can change your mind forever!

I'm an avid baker . . and NO! Didn't like the olive oil in a desert. Phewy! Came out dense - like a brick - without flavor. Liked the blueberries though!

Reviewed Beef Stroganoff

Dec 5, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a lame stroganoff recipe. It would have been better to call this dish by another name. The thin sauce and lack of sour cream doesn't come close to a real resemblance of beef stroganoff.

Don't know cause I haven't made it yet. But what's with the NO picture??? I want to see what the total out come is - color, filling constancy and look. It's not like the foodnet work can't efford it now. Gave it 3 stars cause Ina's receipt's have a great success rate.
