So creamy and wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly, except I made my own recipe for marshmallow-whipped cream for the topping. I used the candied pecans, and they were just a wonderful addition with a crunchy texture that this pie really benefitted from. I don't think I will ever make a pumpkin pie again!""

Wonderful! Not as difficult as I had anticipated. I was scared of the intense amount of garlic this recipe calls for, but it is perfect. California boy knows his gumbo! Thank you Mr. Fieri!"

I love this recipe! I'm always looking for ways to sneak veggies into my 2 year old's diet and this is a winner for me! As written I think it's a bit bland, so when I make it for my family I add an extra garlic clove and some italian seasonings to kick it up a bit. I made this the first time to go with Giada's Beef and 3 cheese manicotti and it...

My muffins are in the oven as I type this review. I am being hasty because I tasted the batter and it was wonderful, so if anything doesn't turn out it is because of my struggles as a baker! I made a few modifications of my own, I used pecans instead of walnuts because my family is allergic to walnuts. I also grated a little fresh nutmeg in with...

Reviewed Apple-Nut Muffins with Streusel Topping

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

I loved these! Several of my family members are allergic to nuts so I left them out of the muffins. Instead of nuts in the streusel topping, I substituted finely ground up pretzels. Next time I make them, I will use tin liners so they don't stick. I also only cooked mine for 15 minutes, and they were perfect. These would be great for a brunch,...

I love these! To make them easier for my two-year old to handle, I cut the dough into strips and then into 1-1/2'' pieces so they were bite size. They're also great with a little icing. How can you go wrong with deep fried sugar-topped bread dipped into more sugar?? :)

This is the only Mac and Cheese my husband will eat anymore. I love this recipe with my whole heart...clogged arteries and all. I added a bit of garlic and onion powder in the sauce. I use a cheddar/pepper jack cheese blend sometimes, or a cheddar/smoked mozz blend depending on how I'm feeling.

I have decided that the Neely's know how to do desserts! The only thing I changed was I toasted my pecans for a few minutes because I like how it makes them taste.

Reviewed Buttermilk Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing

Feb 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My cupcakes turned out a little bit dry as well. Any suggestions for fixing this? Icing was delicious, I doubled the cupcakes and only did half the icing recipe and came out about even with just a little icing left over.
