5 stars for taste, 1 star for the recipe as written.
Use 1 to 1.5c of cream to get the dough to stick together using a bog bowl. Save yourself a lot of trouble and forget rolling out the dough. Use a 1/2c measuring cup, pack the dough in and drop onto the parchment paper like a drop biscuit. Add a few minutes more cooking time as they...

Dec 8, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

These were tasty and went over well. I would have given this 5 stars if not for how the recipe is written. The photo for these little pigs makes them look perfect. We attempted 3 different batches and each time ended up with little pigs with crispy cheese skirts from all of the cheese oozing out of the rollup. Personally I think that enhanced...

Reviewed Sweet Potato Bundt Cake with Spiced Buttered Rum Glaze

Apr 2, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A very good, moist cake. Not 'sweet potato-y' at all. We substituted spiced rum for the water in the batter......because we could.
Can be lightened up a little by using 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1/4 cup oil."

Mar 31, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very tasty and simple to make. We found the puree to be a bit watery so the 2nd time we left out the water. A little soy sauce instead of salt added a nice flavor."

Reviewed Baked French Toast Casserole

Mar 27, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I followed the recipe and applied the following advice from other reviewers with excellent results:
1. Stir the casserole when you combine the ingredients, before you go to bed, and just before you put it in the oven.
2. Use only 1 stick of butter, softened, in topping. Not 2.
3. Cube the bread.
4. Make sure...

Very quick and easy recipe to put together. We added some heat with habanero powder. The avocado is a nice touch with the heat. "

The entire family loved it. I wouldn't change a thing. If you like fennel, the leftover rub goes well on steaks."

Reviewed Antipasto Sausage Skewers

Dec 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Super easy and delicious. The better the sausage used, the better the skewers. We found that using artichoke bottoms rather than hearts made them easier to make in mass quantities and actually had more artichoke flavor."

Reviewed Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomato Profiteroles with Herb Oil

Dec 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A bit time consuming but a very nice flavor. We saved ourselves some time by using the stand mixer and paddle to incorporate the eggs into the flour/butter/water mixture. We also preferred pistachios to walnuts. "

Reviewed Mini Italian Club Sandwiches

Made two for a party and they went over well. Everyone thought they were 'cute' and tasty. We had some chopped/shredded prosciutto that we put on our second sandwich and it added great flavor."

Reviewed Chicken in Creamy Tomato Curry: Chicken Tikka Masala

Dec 2, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a good 'base' recipe for chicken tiki masala. In my opinion, as the recipe is written, I would give it a 3.5 rating rather than 4. We augmented this recipe in several ways and found it made it even tastier:
1. Used about 1.5 lbs of chicken thighs rather than just 1 lb.
2. Compiled, toasted and ground our own masala spice...

Tasty and cute little snack. There was not a lot of corn flavor to the dough. The consistency was a little like pretzel bread. We used bockwurst sausage from our local butcher and it gave this a great flavor We look forward to trying these with chicken and cheese sausage. Some tips for what it's worth:

Very simple and delicious. I used St. Louis style ribs and they turned out delicious. Some various things we did that enhanced this recipe:
After cooking, remove the meat from the cooker and strain the liquid. After the liquid cools put in the refrigerator over night and remove the fat cap in the morning. Add the puled meat to the soup...

Sep 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A tasty concept. Basting the bacon every 5 minutes made it too sweet for my taste. When I basted and peppered only twice (once after the initial cooking, then just once more) it was much better.""
