Reviewed Apple-Raisin Cole Slaw

Aug 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this slaw with the beans and chopped barbecue for our weekly family dinner. It makes a TON of slaw. Unfortunately, most of it is still sitting in my fridge because no one loved it. The recipe makes for a pretty bland dish so I doubled the raisins and apples. (Be sure to peel the apples and carrots even though the recipe does not specif...

Aug 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

As promised, this tart is easy to make. As many of you noted, the fruit filling came streaming out of it while baking. Next time, I'll bake it in a pie plate. One warning - the tart is exactly that...very tart. To cut some of what my sister called "the sourness," try coupling it with Ina's vanilla ice cream recipe. Nice combo. I'll be makin...

Reviewed Grandma's Chopped Barbecue

Aug 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Our family gathers every Sunday for dinner. When it's my turn to cook, I seldom stray from Giada or Ina's recipes because 9 times out of 10, they turn out as promised. This week, I took a chance on Sunny's family reunion recipes. Sadly, it only confirmed my tendency to stick with my old standbys. After 3 hours, the meat still was not even clo...

Reviewed Sunny's Easy Baked Beans

Aug 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I decided to make this recipe for our weekly family dinner after catching the last half of "Real Cooking," during which Sunny promised you will "never eat canned baked beans again after trying this recipe." Not so sure about that. The flavor did not disappoint, but I had to make a number of modifications. Thanks so much to all of you who warne...

I LOVE this recipe! I have made it countless times and never tire of it. I love the suggestion below about adding shallots and other types of peppers. So many variations to choose from! It's a keeper!""

Reviewed Turkey Meatloaf with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Aug 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

We loved this recipe! I'm tempted to make burgers out of it sometime. My only criticism is one that surprises the heck out of me - it's a little too salty. I love salt and have often joked that I should get one of those salt licks that you put in a hamster cage, but this was a little too salty even for me. ""

Reviewed Cheesy Baked Farro

Aug 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I must admit I was afraid to try this recipe. I didn't even know what farro was. Nor did anyone at my local grocery store or the closest alternative grocery store. I was able to find barley at Jimbo's, but there were two kinds, and I wasn't sure which to buy. I ended up selecting the pearl variety and it worked well in this recipe. I'm so gl...

Reviewed Lime and Cornmeal Cookies with Citrus Glaze

Aug 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were the worst cookies I have ever made. :( I had the same problem with having to add too much rice flour because the dough was too wet. But the worst problem is the gritty texture from the cornmeal. My brother (who is gluten free) compared it to eating sand. The 2 stars reflect the fact that the icing is delicious. I made it again an...
