The taste was great but mine didn't set properly either I didn't use heavy cream but skimmed the dence coconut cream from a chilled canned... might not have had enough fat content or something. "

Reviewed Coconut Cake with 7-Minute Frosting

Apr 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I used coconut sugar (palm sugar) it's dry and less sweet, I think next time I try this recipe I will do half palm sugar and half raw honey and see how that turns out. For the commentors who said this recipe was too sweet, I definitly recommend giving this a try : ) Since I didn't follow the recipe I don't want to rate it but i guess I have to..."

I made the dressing into a dip, i didn't have plain yogurt so I used sour cream instead. My friend and I really enjoyed it - he said it tasted like a polish dipping sauce he had tried before. ""

Mar 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

verry fluffy - just what I was looking for. I'm definitly going to start beating my egg whites every time I make pancakes now. I used wild rice flour (Gift of the Wild, in Mn) in place of the white flour and half the amount of bakeingsoda and salt (I use sea salt) They were still plenty sweet for me. I used coconut milk instead of buttermilk and ...

Reviewed Spicy Coconut Shrimp with Spicy Mango Basil Salsa and Lime Jasmine Rice

Mar 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I improvised like crazy but it still turned out delicious - I was worried it would be too spicy but the sweet salsa and the coconut rice balanced it out beautifully. I didn't have fresh basil or ginger so I used dry and let the salsa and the marinade sit over night. And for vegitareans, try whole fresh shitake heads in place of the shrimp, after ...

Unfortunately I only had green tea at the house this time and went with jasmine. I left the honey out for people to add by preference, the anise was a little heavy but not bad, I can't wait to try this recipe again with some different tea leaves to find the best compliment. ""

I used a home made mayo and skipped the bacon and carrots and added some minced garlic.

Jan 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I thought they were fantastic, and for 'rolling' cookies they weren't to dry or hard. I like the unique combination. I was craving some kind of molasses cocoa combination but couldn't figure out how to do it. Thank you Aarti Sequeira and food network - I'll definitely keep an eye out for more of her recipes. ""

Reviewed The Chewy

Sep 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

the sweetness and amount of chocolate was perfect but they came out verry heavy, biscuit like, and not verry chewy at all. I'm going to give this recipe one more shot I think with the lower temperature and maybe try some oil in place of some of the butter""

i like hot and spicy but this was unexpectedly so, i should have known when I read the amount of cayenne. The shrimp was fantastic but I'de definitly cut back on the cayenne next time I make this - and I burnt the bacon : ( don't know if that would have been sweet enough to cool me off or not. ""

Aug 29, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

at first I was worried the blackened seasoning would be too hot so I went for a minimum on the Cayenne but with the wonderfully sweet and tangy chutney (which I used cantaloupe with)and not knowing that the fish was naturally so sweet - till I tried it with this - I found it absolutely delectable and got complimented by all my guests.""
