Reviewed Homemade Marshmallows

Dec 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Really not sure how to rate this recipe. Though the marshmallows turned out pretty good, they sure were a lot of work. The hardest part was getting them from the pan into the actual marshmallow shape. Even though I greased the pan with non-stick Pam, it was still a little tricky to get them out of the pan. Also, after tasting it, one side tast"

Reviewed Cheese-Stuffed Dates with Prosciutto

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

They are really good unheated, but when heated, they are incredible. As another reviewer posted, I heated for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. When cooled down, the prosciutto seemed to be a little dried out. So eat them when they're hot! Very easy to do, though a little pricey and tedious to put together. However, definitely worth it!

Dec 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

After reading the reviews, I decided to use only half a large lemon in order to avoid the "sticky" issue. Worked great. I was also unsure of how much orange peel to use, so I used a fairly good-sized amount and it turned out fantastic. I have never had gingerbread cookies turn out this well, amazingly moist and flavorful. Never did make the ic"

Wow. Waaay too much salt. Could have done 1/2 tsp. and been fine. Also too much cheese. Even my daughter, who treats cheese as a separate food group, felt it was too "cheesy." Added a few breadcrumbs on top and cut up cherry tomatoes. Without less cheese and salt, it could be a five-star recipe. Will plan to double next time with my change...

So, so good. Didn't include the almonds and they were still spectacular. Other than that, didn't change a thing.""

Reviewed Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup

Dec 31, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made the french toast part as stated. However, to limit the "sweetness" factor (from reading other reviews), I changed up the topping. Used less than a stick of butter, "dotting" the butter all over the french toast. I also sprinkled a small amount of brown sugar on top of the bread (maybe 1/8 of a cup?) so as to add a smaller-scale element of...

Heaven. Used cream cheese instead of the mascarpone and marsala cooking wine. Was nervous the "cooking wine" wouldn't taste right, but didn't notice a thing. Only needed 30 minutes in the oven. Did only three scallions, omitted the parsley, salt and pepper (the sausage makes it salty enough). These were GONE faster than I could blink. Had e...

I thought these were really good! Made them for Easter dessert. I didn't deviate from the recipe, though I completely forgot to chop up the thyme (a must). I didn't feel as though the thyme was too much; it gave just enough of a hint of it to provide an added dimension of flavor. I'd definitely make these again."

I thought it was pretty good too, though was a little nervous after reading some other reviews. Only used 1 lb of hamburger which was fine. Added only a pinch of salt to the meat mixture which gave it plenty of flavor. Didn't use a full 1/2 cup of butter (maybe 1/3 cup?) to the potatoes and no salt. The crust left much to be desired, though that...
