Amazing. I completely messed up the recipe to the point where it shouldn't even be said I followed the recipe I used so many substitutions, and yet it STILL turned out fantastic. Simply amazing. I cannot imagine how wonderful it must be if you follow the whole thing. ""

There are two ways I follow recipes: to the letter (going out and buying every ingredient) and as guidelines (scavenging around the house). This was the latter. I used what was in stock in my kitchen: whole wheat bread instead of french/sourdough and turkey instead of bacon (and dijon mustard instead of plain mustard, but that's just a taste thin...

Easy and quick! It's not epic, but considering it's very quick and only a few ingredients it's quite good. There's not much effort, which is the main reason I chose this, so I could carry the ingredients back to my dorm and cook it in the dorm kitchen with ease. ""

Sure, it was easy, but I think plainly cooked broccoli tastes better. Just add a little olive oil or butter, some spices and save yourself the trouble. ""

I followed the recipe, but it just didn't go well for me. The taste wasn't there for the amount of effort put into it. Clearly I'm the outlier, though, maybe it was just something else off.""

Reviewed Perfect Caramel Apples

Nov 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've never made caramel before, so this took me a couple tries to get. The second batch was great, the first and third not so much, and overall I found it just too much of a hassle. That's the nature of caramel/cooking sugar, true, but the end taste of the caramel didn't really make up for the time and frustration. ""

Perfect! It's a lovely, simple popover with great texture you can make quickly and easily. But if you make half a batch using a normal muffin tin (22 popovers total) remember to lower the time!! I didn't and they were a little burnt, but still quite good. Definitely going to make them again and keep my eye on the time. ""

Reviewed Butternut Squash Muffins with a Frosty Top

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

I actually had cooked squash already, so instead of using a food processor I just mashed everything together with a spoon and it turned out great. I used something like two cups of cooked sqaush or something close to the original measurement and everyone really liked them. I never tried the frosty top, instead I just quickly made cream cheese ici...

Topped off butternut squash muffins/cupcakes with this. Super easy, super quick, and super sweet. ""

FAST and tasty. I had all the ingredients already so I didn't even have to go out and get stuff. I made them way too big, though, so when they mean four dozen or whatever, they MEAN IT. It turned into a huge cookie-cake, but it was still delicious! Considering how quick, easy and convenient they were to make, these are fantastic. ""

Reviewed Traditional Apple Pie

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

FANTASTIC. First of all, I'd like to say I made this WITHOUT a rolling pin. My dorm's kitchen doesn't have one and I didn't realize that before I started cooking. The only ingredients my dorm kitchen didn't have were shortening and apples, which makes this recipe super cheap (especially if you get people to snag apples from the dining hall for yo...

Super delicious and super easy! I doubled the recipe and it still turned out great. Not to mention, my dorm's kitchen doesn't have some of the proper cooking utensils, so although they didn't turn out particularly pretty the taste was still the same. Everyone loved them and the only ingredient the dorm kitchen didn't supply was the buttermilk.""

Sep 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Nothing particularly epic about these muffins...They tasted good and were easy to make, but not anything to write home about. I also ended up having enough batter after the 16 cupcakes to fill an 8in round cake pan and make a muffin-cake/giant muffin. ""

Fantastic. I go a little heavy on the crackers and cornflakes, but other than that I don't adjust the recipe. I was even surprised how easy this was to make compared to most oven-baked chicken recipes. ""
