Reviewed Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup

Dec 13, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

My boyfriend is obsessed with this recipe. He always requests that I make it when he has friends over so that he can brag about how good of a cook I am :) He even swore me not to tell anyone that he thinks it is better than his mother's. Definitely a keeper recipe!!!

Reviewed Fruit and Nut Holiday Shortbread

Dec 8, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Absolutely drool dripping spectacular. Now, I should preface my critique by just letting the world know that shortbread is my favorite cookie, so that might have swayed my opinion about these just a little. But really, these cookies have a buttery, salty taste that pairs perfectly with the sweet and tart chocolate cranberry topping. The recipe is...

Dec 6, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I was SO excited when I saw this recipe because, well, to put it lightly, I’m a peanut butter FREAK; so much so, that I don’t allow myself to buy it because inevitably half of it will be gone in 20 minutes, and I’m left feeling really bad about myself. But enough of me and my problems. This recipe reminded me of childhood and the carefree days of...

Reviewed Raspberry Cake Bars

Dec 5, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Well, a disappointing recipe in my mind. There was just nothing special at all here, and using pre-made cookie dough, while easy, was a little off putting to me, someone who lives by the mantra that everything homemade tastes better. I’m usually a big fan of fruit flavors, so I was looking forward to tasting the lemon and raspberry flavors together,...

Dec 4, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Wow, I was completely and utterly underwhelmed with these cookies. The flavor for the most part was nothing special, and is in fact, just what you would expect - chocolaty nuts on top of some graham. This cookie has the texture of and tastes a lot like a nutty brittle, which I am not generally a fan of. The only redeeming part of this cookie was the...

Reviewed Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Dec 4, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Mmmm...I absolutely love the sweet/tart flavor these cookies have. The glaze is really in my mind what gives these cookies that tart punch of lemon. I felt the ricotta gave these cookies a more cake-like texture, so they were very light and fluffy. Although I like the recipe as it is, blueberries might be a fun addition. All in all, I feel it's a...

Reviewed Dried Cherry and Almond Biscotti

Dec 3, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Biscotti isn't a cookie that everyone will love. Some people will be turned off from the somewhat hard texture, but I am not one of these people :) I enjoyed this recipe very much. The lemon zest is what MADE these cookies. It was a nice compliment to the tart cherries, and these cookies would not nearly be as good without it. These are great milk...

Dec 2, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Yum, yum, YUM! This recipe is definitely a keeper. These cookies are WAY easy to make, and taste absolutely amazing. They are perfectly crunchy on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside. They are not overly coconut-y either. Warning: it is hard to eat only one of these. I "accidentally" kept breaking them when I was getting off the tray, and...

Reviewed Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

Dec 1, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

These cookies sure were gooey, but in a not so goo-tastic way. Given that these cookies were made from a cake mix I should have expected a lighter, cakier texture, but ah...I didn't. They tasted similar to muffin tops...I'm struggling to come up with a funny joke here, but I'm failing at that too. I probably wouldn't make these again, but if I did...

Reviewed Garam Masala-Chocolate Gingerbread

Dec 1, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

These were the most exotic cookies I have every tasted. There were tons of flavors going on here, and I know they would definitely make a good conversation piece at any get together. They tasted like something you would be served at a very fancy restaurant for dessert, just a single one of these cookies on a fancy plate with a shot glass of milk....
