Reviewed Chicken Parmesan

Oct 14, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

This is by far the best chicken Parm I've ever made! I made Giada's recipe last yr and it didn't turn out good. This one is by far the best. The flavor, the freshness and sweetness of basil and the saltiness of olives in the tomato sauce gave this recipe it's character that screams Italy. I used crushed tomato instead of whole peeled tomato just because...

Jan 2, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this for new year's eve dinner along with other dishes and it was soo good. I've never had a real jambalaya but if this is an authentic recipe, it's awesome. There are a lot of veggies to slice but it's okay because that's what I like the most about this meal it has the meat, veggies, creole flavor, seafood. It's like bringing in a more a p"

Dec 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I find it very rich and chocolatey which is good. I thought the cake will not rise because the batter was too thin. But it was actually done after 40mins. It was very moist I had a hard time taking it out from the cooling rack. I'm not professional enough to cut it in half though so after layering it the cake is leaning to the other side. I would"

Reviewed Old-Fashioned Holiday Glazed Ham

Dec 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this tonight for our Christmas Eve dinner. I had 2 cans of pineapple juice from where I made pineapple upside down cake so I might have put a little bit more juice in my glaze. I poured the sauce all over the ham once it was cooked but I noticed that it was a thin sauce. So I made a reduction to make a thicker and stickier sauce that will g"

Reviewed French Apple Tart

Dec 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made a lot of Ina's recipes over the holiday but I must say this is a keeper. I've already made this a few months ago and everybody's been raving about it. Although I have not been in France, I must say this is a favorite of mine like Ina. The recipe is foolproof and it turns out exactly as the way Ina made it in the video. I served it in a t"

Reviewed Raspberry Cheesecake

Dec 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Looks wise. My cheesecake cracked after turning off the oven and leaving it inside for 30mins with the door slightly opened. Maybe I should've left it wide open so that the temp of the oven wouldn't be so hot while it's inside for 30 more mins. But we have a galley kitchen and we have a 3 yr old running around and I don't want him burned, so it's "

Reviewed Pumpkin Pie

Dec 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is probably the best pumpkin pie I've ever had. I made this this past thanksgiving and it was very divine. The filling is so smooth and creamy. I added some pecan streusel as topping and placed it on the pie 15mins before the allotted time it takes to bake in the oven. It was was wonderful. Try it. With or without the streusel. This recipe i"
