Reviewed Massaged Kale Salad

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

I made this salad to go with Aarti's Mango Chutney, Paneer and Prosciutto Pizza and it was a perfect compliment. I have to say when I first made it, I liked it, but thought the lemon was a little strong. I let it sit overnight and wow! The flavors had a chance to meld and it is so fabulous! Can't wait to make this the next time I am asked "

Reviewed Five-Minute Fudge Wreath

Dec 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this fudge every year. I make it in an 8x8 pan instead of doing the wreath shape. It's so easy and comes out so tasty and creamy and not dry like some fudge can be. It's year I made the chocolate/butterscotch mixture, one plain and one with walnuts and dried cranberries mixed in. I also made a white chocolate version with crushed candy "

I made these exactly as the recipe states. I didn't have any problem with the dough. i even made it a couple of days ahead an put it in the fridge. The only thing is that they only took about 15 minutes. It may have to do with how thin I made them. I used a star cookie cutter and sprinkled with green sugar for a festive touch. I havn't deci"

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

I made this as written except I added 2tbsp of sour cream. Next time I will use 8oz cream cheese. I only had 4 otherwise would have added 8 today. Still a good frosting, light and fluffy. I used it on pumpkin cookies and had more than enough for 3dozen cookies."

Reviewed Roasted Butternut Squash Soup and Curry Condiments

Nov 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Wow, what a great soup! I peeled and cubed the squash and it really wasn't all that difficult. I didn't have quite enough broth so it was pretty thick, but the flavor was fantastic. I added more curry powder, probably about a tablespoon. I also added cayenne since we like spice. It was so easy and tuned out great. I am going to get myself an"

Reviewed Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette

Sep 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My new favorite dressing! I will be making this over and over. I used about 2/3 c oil and 1/4 vinegar. It was soooo good and easy to make. No need to ever buy bottled balsamic again. And for those reviewers complaining that it is fattening, you only need a small amount. I made 2 huge salads and still have some left over. It works well to ma"

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

I made this because I had chicken and green beans and searched for a recipe. It was such a hit! I had everything except the cashews and green onions and it was still great! My husband told me I should make this next time we have people over. Next time I'll make sure to have the cashews and green onions and it will be that much better! I took "

Reviewed Mexican Rice

Jan 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was so easy and great. Made it as a side dish for tacos. I made just a couple of changes based on what I had. I used brown rice and added 2 10 oz cans of the tomatoes. I also ended up adding another 1/2 cup of water after about 25 minutes. Total cooking time was about 45 minutes due to the brown rice. I also did not add the cheese...

I am making these to bring to a party tonight and had to make a test batch to make sure I liked them enough! Wow! Did I ever! Yum! I made accroding to the directions, but instead I used small Campari tomatoes and laid the slices out evenly next to each other, then topped each tomato slice with an equal sized piece of mozzerella. This way when"
