Reviewed Ham, Leek and Gruyere Quiche

Oct 5, 2013 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I made this to start an all day party with some friends. I made mini-quiches by dividing everything up into mini muffin tins to make it go farther, and I used Pancetta instead of Ham. It was delicious! I had to keep my self from eating too many before guests arrived. It was a huge hit - the crust is crazy good. I will use that for every quich"

Reviewed Chicken Liver Mousse Mirabelle

Feb 20, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this for a dinner party with some serious foodies, and it was a huge hit. One person said it was better than their chef friend's chicken liver mousse. Very good and not difficult at all - just takes time. I will certainly make this again."

Reviewed White-Bean Soup Shooters with Bacon

This is delicious and super easy. I used an immersion blender instead of transferring in stages to a food processor, and it was much less complicated. Also, I used 4 slices of bacon instead of 1/2 slice and added a drizzle of truffle oil at the end; I've also made it strictly by the recipe but the additions make the flavor more interesting to me"

This is very easy and smells so good. I can't wait to use it in a soup. For those of you asking about why she doesn't add salt, I found a video of her making this online. She said she doesn't add salt until she uses it because it won't be appropriate for every use. "

Reviewed Yeast Rolls

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

These are good, but not really what I was hoping for. If you are looking for the light, airy yeast rolls, look elsewhere. If you're looking for something more dense and biscuit like, these work quite well."

Reviewed Cheese-Stuffed Dates with Prosciutto

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

These are so good and super easy to make. The saltiness of the prosciutto with the sweetness of the dates and the creaminess of the cheese is a perfect combination. This is my go to app for a party. "

Reviewed Caramel Cake

Apr 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this recipe numerous times and it always gets rave reviews. I'm making it again for a dinner party this week (by request), and I read the reviews to see if anyone had neat ideas for presentation. I was surprised at how many people found this dry. I don't find the cake dry at all, and if you pour the filling in big holes in the cake (...

Reviewed Good Eats Roast Turkey

Nov 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this every year for the past 5 years and will never use another recipe. It rocks!!! It makes no difference if you buy the expensive turkey from the butcher or just get a Butterball. It's always great. I just put this year's turkey in the brine. This year I'm going to add some truffle butter under the skin before it goes in the oven...
