This cake is a definite winner. The cake was moist and the frosting wasn't too sweet, so all the chocolate wasn't overkill. Definitely will make this cake again. I think the frosting was more mocha than just chocolate, but still a winner. "

I thought this came out pretty good. The batter is thick when putting in the 9x9 pan, but once you spread it out, it covers the whole pan. I would have liked it a touch sweeter, but out of the 5 people I served it to, 4 of them loved it (the 5th didn't care for the ginger flavor). I think it's a hit and perfect for using blueberries when they'r"

I made a test loaf of this in hopes it would be good enough for St. Patty's Day and it will definitely be made again. It had a good texture, the currants were tasty and the texture was close to perfect (I like it a bit crumbly - which it got the next day). I will be making 5 of these for my party this year. "

I think the second baking absolutely ruined them for me. They we hard as rocks and folks were concerned about dental work when trying to bite into them (definitely not something anyone wants to hear at a table full of guests). If i ever made them again, would definitely cut the second baking time for the sliced biscotti in half (or less. After "

Made these and totally not what I expected. They're good, but not great. First, you definitely don't get 44 cookies - NO WAY. Two tablespoons per cookie give you 16 or 18 cookies tops - careful when putting them on the cookiesheet as they run together at this size (did 8 total and they bled together using 2 tablespoons). Think that should prob"

Dec 17, 2012 in Show Us Your Cookies on FoodNetwork.com

These cookies were a big hit with my friends/family. The flavor is great and the texture is perfect for a biscotti. I had the biggest trouble with the white chocolate - never got that perfect consistency to just dip the cookies, so had to spread it on with a spreader and sometimes the cookies snapped in my hand when doing so. Much easier if you"

Definitely a great dish! Using a little starchy pasta water to make the "sauce" is definitely the trick when you're putting in the grated cheese. A great summer dish - will definitely make this again. Although, I think the four pints of tomatoes was overkill - will try three next time. "

I skipped the sandwich part and just served wedges. I also used red potatoes with the skin on for added color. This recipe was great and went as fast as I could put them out. Will definitely make it again."

Agreed, this was a complete hit at my house - and we're not big whiskey drinkers. Great blend of fresh ingredients, etc. totally hit the spot with a whole crowd. Only downside, I was squeezing lemons and limes forever! Hahaha Definitely try this recipe!"

I have to say that this soup was a hit for my entire family. Definitely not fun rolling all of those mini meatballs, but well worth the effort in the end. I used escarole instead of endive and breadcrumbs instead of white bread - so much easier to mix. I made a small pasta in a separate pot and added it to the soup - make sure you have some extra...
