Reviewed Paradise Macaroons

Dec 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I did a lot of Xmas baking and this was by far the biggest hit, even with those who do not care for coconut. I had never made macaroons before and am always a little worried when dealing with whipping egg whites and folding ingredients. Some reviews had me concerned that this would be a technique sensitive recipe, but it was easy. I followed it e"

Dec 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Great recipe. The tartness of the cranberry really balances the sweetness of the white chocolate. I included these in my Xmas cookie gift tins and they were a big hit. I did make them a little smaller, as they pack better and people can try more varieties without over-doing. I just cut baking time a bit and watched them carefully. I also always ch"

Always the first appetizer to go and what's nice is that they can be made early before a party and be kept warm on low in crock pot but are also fine if they come to room temperature. Make more than you think you'll need. They cook down smaller. I made 2 1lb packs once cooked, it only about 1/2 filled crock pot. Next time I'll do 3. Some tips, d...

Good copy cat recipe and very easy. Made these this Turkeyday and they were a big hit. I was a little worried about fussing with a new recipe for homemade biscuits and I don't like leaving too much to do at the last minute, when you are trying to get everything on the table and hot, but since I made a lot of sides and gravy ahead, I figured what ...

Nov 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Love Alton, but this recipe was a miss for me. Shocking broc. did make for nice color and texture (not mushy) but the sauce was an odd-flavored gloppy mess. I do like the idea of a broc/cheese casserole, but am gonna have to keep looking at other recipes. I don't know if trying to tweak this one will help, perhaps spreading this out into a larger "

Nov 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

My family were never turnip eaters until I decided to make this recipe one thanksgiving years ago. I don't think they even knew what a rutabaga was. They are not even really veggie lovers. Now they ask for it again and again. I can't tell you how many people who have tried this and loved it who never had a turnip before. Just cut turnips to simila"

Nov 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Great recipe, absolute hit! Perfect texture, nice creamy density without being heavy. Just perfect amount of pumpkin flavor. I think even those who aren't crazy about pumpkin or cheesecake would like it. I did double cinnamon and nutmeg, but left out clove and it seemed just right. I have to disagree with those who thought the amt of crumbs was t"
