This is a perfect pizza dough. I only use 1 teaspoon of salt because 1 tablespoon makes the dough way too salty. "

Feb 9, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Sorry, but I didn't like this chicken. I should have used a wire rack when baking it because the cornflakes on the bottom of the chicken got really soggy. It was nothing really fancy either. Just cornflakes on top of chicken. "

Dec 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I just made this candy. I don't have a fancy crock pot where I can set the timer or temperature. I just have one with 4 settings. Keep Warm, Low, Medium, and High. I set mine to low and the candy only took an hour and 30 minutes to melt. It's delicious! However, this is something you could also do on a stove top really quick. That is why I only ga"

After I saw the episode aired, I wanted to make this right away. Had everything on hand and made it today. So good, the title should say Kid and Adult Friendly Pasta. "

I think I was eating at a 5 star Italian restaurant with this tomato sauce. Now I know what makes a tomato sauce so good, lots of butter and olive oil. Thanks Melissa. Gonna try the bean recipe from this episode too. "

These cookies are so good and chocolaty. My husband and I went and bought all the ingredients the day after the episode aired. It's kind of pricey buying all the different kinds of chocolate, but in the end it was well worth it. We still have enough to make another batch of them. ""

Reviewed Simple, Perfect Chili

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

This chili recipe is great! I didn't have any tomato sauce so I used a can of whole tomatoes instead and added about 2 cups of beef broth. Next time I think I'll just leave out the corn flour because it was thick enough as it is, and add some more cayanne pepper. ""

Probably the best twice baked potatoes I've ever had and I didn't even add the bacon. These could be a meal all by itself with the bacon. Can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.""

This pot roast was so tender and delicious! I loved it and will definitely be making again. With more onions and carrots next time. ""

Definitely a girly pizza. My future husband tried it and didn't like it. I just loved the combination of flavors. ""

I don't know why but for some reason I can't get the sweetened condensed milk to turn into the dulce de leche. It always ends up burning before that. The stove is set to a temp of medium low around 4 or 5 and I'm constantly stirring. I'm also using a heavy pan. I wish I could get it to work because it looks delicious in the pictures. ""

This is a good ice cream base. Will use again."

These burgers were really good. I liked the added hot dogs in it. Next time I'm going to add some more chili powder.

Reviewed Salted Caramel Banana Pudding Pie

Nov 12, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This recipe says to add fleur de sel to the caramel mixture, but the caramel mixture recipe doesn't call for any salt. Maybe someone at Food Network should should fix the recipe? I was so proud of myself after making the caramel mixture and it actually working. I've tried making caramel sauce before, for caramel apples and the caramel mixture turned...
