Reviewed fruit salad with orange-vanilla syrup

Mar 16, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

A keeper! Hostess asked me to bring a fruit salad to a sit down dinner for ten, so I was looking for a more elegant recipe. Made exact recipe, but also quartered the strawberries and used only about 2/3's of the liquid reduction. Colorful and shining from the glace, people went back for 2nds and 3rds. Thank goodness I kept some home for us! Added...

Delish!!! Had a fully cooked pork tenderloin left over. Made the dressing and the salad as shown. Warmed the tenderloin, sliced it thin, laid it over the greens (tossed with a little dressing) and topped it with the apples, walnuts & blue cheese. family said to save this one! "

Substituted regular oats for quick cook, dates for figs (couldn't find them in store) and hand-chopped almonds for walnuts. Froze them individually. At first the family was "eh" (dad & two teen girls), but they liked the health benefit and ate them all week. Very versatile. Now they're asking for more, with dried cranberries and a few mini da...

Delish! Will make the meat again. Marinated the meat in the refrigerator for an hour - it was full of flavor. Served with risotto & grilled portabello mushroom. Didn't have potatoes. "

Reviewed White Chocolate and Blueberry Bread Pudding with Amaretto Cream Sauce

Jun 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Have made this twice for a group of people. It is delicious! Rich and sweet. Bought crusty peasant Pano bread from Whole Foods, cut into cubes, let sit out for a couple of hours (didn't have time for day old bread), and only let custard soak for 15 minutes before baking. Sauce only takes 5 minutes - and is a perfect compliment to the pudding. "
