This is crazy how everyone had such completely different results with this cake! I followed the recipe exactly, and baked at 350 for 50 minutes. The outside was a little dark but the inside was perfect. If I make again I will start checking at about 40 minutes to make sure it isn't overdone. It did stick to the bottom of my loaf pan but I may not "

Really tasty chicken dish! I am gluten free and my husband is low carb so sandwiches aren't really an option for us, but Jeff's recipes look so yummy that I usually just reverse them back into the original dish they came from and they are great! I made the pan fried chicken and the jus and the pea/mushroom mix and served it over rice. Very yummy ...

Reviewed Banana "Ice Cream" Fakeout

Sep 13, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I was excited to try this since I have developed an allergy to cow's milk and I liked it a lot! I used vanilla soy milk and it was very creamy. I think I will add a little sugar or vanilla next time. It was definitely very banana-y, and I've never really enjoyed bananas all that much, but once you pour enough chocolate and nuts on it it tastes pr...

Aug 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

First time making a real jam, and this was a nice easy recipe. Followed everything exactly, and I do think it is a bit too sweet. Will use less sugar next time. I didn't have a candy thermometer so I used a regular thermometer and it just never got above 215 degrees, so I don't know if it ever really reached the true jelling phase. I think it cou...

Aug 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was a really tasty soup, and so fast to make. I didn't have a jalapeno on hand so I omitted it, but I think it would probably give a nice bite so I will add next time. The portions are very very large, I halved the recipe and it was still at least 4 servings for my husband and myself. I will definitely try this one again! ""

Reviewed Slow-Cooker Barbecue Beans and Sausage

Aug 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This recipe was okay, nothing special. I thought it was rather bland. It was only palatable after adding lots of salt and pepper and tons of hot sauce. There was plenty of liquid, in fact I would probably add less than recommended, but the beans were not as tender as I would have liked after 6 hours. Maybe using all chicken broth instead of some ...

Reviewed Teriyaki Hens with Bok Choy

Aug 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I liked this recipe, it was quick and easy. I liked the flavor of the sauce, but my husband thought it was a little bitter, so I will probably cut back on the grapefruit juice next time or add some sugar. I wouldn't say the sauce ever got to a "thick syrup" consistency, it was really more of a glaze. The hens made a very pretty presentation on th...

Reviewed Sloppy Lasagna

Aug 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I've made this dish quite a few times for my husband and he really likes it. It makes way more than 8 servings and since I can't eat it myself, I make the whole batch and freeze it in portions for at least half a month worth of lunches for my husband to take to work. I never bother with breaking lasagna noodles, I just use spirals or shells or wh...

Reviewed Spanish-Style Noodles with Chicken and Sausage

Aug 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Didn't like this one at all. Way too much water, way too many noodles, no flavor. Came out like soup or tomato flavored water. Will not be making this one again.""

Reviewed Moo Shu Pork

Aug 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This sauce was very bland. Did not enjoy it at all. Least liked of all the stir-fry recipes we've ever tried. Two stars for using a bag of coleslaw mix as the veggie component, easy quick tip."

Reviewed Curried Chicken and Rice Soup

Aug 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This soup was sooooo delicious. The squeeze of fresh lemon right before eating is AMAZING with this. Dill is my favorite herb on the planet so this is right up my alley. I had to use dried mint and dried dill and it still tasted great. Can't figure out why they want the carrots cut in such huuuge pieces, will definitely chop them smaller next time"

Reviewed Haupia

Jul 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This haupia tasted like it was supposed to, but it never set up. After being in the fridge, a thick skin formed on top but the mixture underneath was just liquid. We just ate it as pudding instead, which tasted fine. This recipe needs more detailed instructions."
