Dec 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this cake for my cousin's birthday. It combined two of his culinary loves, lemon and cheesecake. He LOVED it. He said it was the best cheesecake that he ever ate - and he has eaten a lot of them.
Thank you for sharing this recipe, Giada! As usual, it did not disappoint!!!"

These are fantastic. I, too, used vanilla. These marshmallows are worlds apart from the bagged ones mass produced, which I never liked.

Thank you, Bobby!"

This recipe made such a fantastic gelato! It is as gelato should be, creamy, rich and not overly sweet. I used slivered almonds and enjoyed it. I don't have an ice-cream maker, so I kept mixing it every 30 minutes for three hours and the texture was wonderful.

Thank you, Ina!"

Ina, thank you! My boyfriend loves biscuits. Made these for our Thanksgiving dinner. Used fresh parsley, dried thyme and rubbed sage. Wonderful. Only note, used much more herbs than specified, as any biscuit mix tends to devour the flavourings. Nonetheless, fabulous and much appreciated. Again, thank you for sharing this recipe.

Please, help. I panicked when the milk, sugar and water turned a caramel colour, but read emcclernon's review to learn that also happened to her.
