Reviewed Chocolate-Hazelnut Drop Cookies

Was expecting more Nutella flavor...I like Giada's Hazelnut Smooches much better.""

Reviewed Penne in Almond Sauce

Aug 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Very tasty! The almonds really give the sauce a rich flavor. This is an excellent alternative to alfredo sauce, and probably healthier since there is no butter added. This is a definite keeper!""

Reviewed Skewered Greek Salad

Aug 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A very simple and elegant looking appetizer. I followed others' suggestions and used feta packed in water, and did not have any issues with crumbling cheese. ""

Reviewed Beer Braised Chicken

Aug 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The braising technique left the chicken incredibly moist, but the flavor combination just didn't come together for me. ""

Easy and delicious! Definitley a keeper.""

Reviewed Lime Cream Trifle

Jul 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a big crowd pleaser, though personally I'm not a huge fan of Maria cookies (a little too bland for my palate). Thanks to those who wrote in and recommended using additional lime juice, as this made the cream set beautifully."

A chocolate-peanut butter lover's dream come true...what a winning recipe."

Excellent cake! Very rich and decadent...plus, it was a cinch to make. "

Reviewed Beatty's Chocolate Cake

Jun 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This will be my new "go-to" chocolate cake. It was a HUGE hit - people still talked about how good it tasted days afterward! Though a bit time consuming, it is definitely worth it. I used two nine inch pans per other's suggestions and omitted the espresso powder from the frosting. Thank you again, Ina!"

Reviewed Poblano Potato Salad

May 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

An excellent alternative to basic potato salad. The poblanos and corn paired well, and the sour cream/mayo sauce was quite light. Definitely will make again!"

Reviewed Tortilla, Bean and Cheese Casserole ("Enfrijoladas"

May 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A good way to use up extra frijoles de la olla...the bean puree was excellent. However, I did need to warm the tortillas prior to immersing them in the bean sauce."

Very easy and simple to make. I took the other reviewers' suggestions and reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and increased the baking time by a few minutes. Definitely a keeper!"

Simple and delicious...even my mom, a self-proclaimed "disliker of brussel sprouts" changed her tune when she tried these at Thanksgiving. Another winner from Ina!

I wanted to change up the traditional spinach dip I make during the holidays, and am glad that I made this dip - it was a hit! I followed other reviewer's leads and only used the zest of half a lemon, which complemented the dip well. Definitely a keeper!
