This is a great salad recipe. The dressing is nice and bright. I like to use almonds instead of walnuts, and it works really well.

Reviewed Spaghetti and Meatball "Stoup" (thicker than soup, thinner than stew

Oct 25, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

I love this recipe, and have made it several times. I always substitute ground turkey for the meat, but otherwise, I am faithful to the recipe. I love it, and everyone who has tried it agrees. It makes great leftovers, though it becomes less of a "stoup" and more of just pasta. I have also used the meatball recipe on its own, and it worked out...

This recipe is so-so as far as pasta recipes go. It was quick and easy, and the result was okay, but I think that it needs some tweaking. Without changing some of the portions, and adding some ingredients it is a little dry.

Oct 25, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This was a really nice granola recipe. I thought that the apple concentrate would be weird, but it all worked out well. Instead of dried cranberries, I used dried cherries and dried blueberries, which kind of gave the granola a nice variety (but definitely made it more expensive to make). The granola kept for about a month stored in tupperware,...

Reviewed "Molten" Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes

This recipe is really simple to make and has excellent results. I made them as a gluten-free option with several other kinds of cupcakes, and this one stole the show. Definitely taste best warm, as the recipe recommends. I don't think that this recipe requires any substitutions. It really was fabulous.
