May 15, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Ok so this recipe has plenty of good reviews, which is why decided to give it a go.. They are absolutely delicious, I cant stop eating them!! I never thought I would like peanut butter cookies sooo much!!! I used raspberry jam because I had that on hand. I also did not have wax paper so I sprayed pam but I think this made them a little darker and "

Very delicious!! Super moist and a definite keeper. I skipped the icing because I wanted to use it as a base for "strawberry shortcake" which I did yesterday. This morning I had it plain w/coffee, so good!! I don't have a loaf pan so I baked it in a square 8x8 it worked fine. I think you need to follow the instructions and don't use a beater. It s"

After not having made meatloaf in about 8 yrs. I was craving it and gave it a go. Pretty darn good basic recipe. I think you can definitely adjust this recipe to your liking after making it as is the first time. Maybe add Sazon like one reviewer did. As far as the diced tomato not coming in an 8oz can as one reviewer suggested, just dump enough i"

One of the easiest and tastiest recipes I have made! I followed Rees website recipe which calls for 1 stick of butter as oppose to 1/2 stick stated on this website. Yesterday I made it with blueberry which is what I had, soooo good!! Today I made it with the blackberries, still super delish!!! My waist line is in trouble now that I found this reci"

My house smells great thanks to the cinnamon! I HAVE NOT TRIED THOUGH (still cooling).
If you are new to baking I'd like to mention a few things...
FIRST: For the cake the butter must be softened. You cannot cream the butter and sugar until you first cream the butter alone with a paddle attachment and secondly add the sugar in...

I'm not sure why these are called toffee bars if they contain NO toffee?! I made these for the cookie tins I will be handing out this year to family. I let it cool for a little bit and then tried a slice... The flavor is actually kind of bland, definitely not what I expected, it needs more flavor.. maybe some candied orange peel will take it to th"

Made these today. They are absolutely delicious. Will definitely be making again. I padded mine down a bit after making them into balls I found it works better this way. "

Just made this recipe after looking up how to use the ricotta I had in the fridge, I used what I had on hand. Stewed tomatoes, parsley instead of basil, only garlic no onion and no mozzarella, just Parmesan. The result was fantastic anyway. My picky 4 yr old ate it all!! I definitely see this as an easy dish for entertaining. Will definitely make "

Just made this recipe. I didn't have white wine so I had to cook without, it still came out delicious! Very easy and flavorful. I love it. I also d-boned my chicken breast, which was easy as well. Will definitely make again!!"

Apr 29, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I broke my diet to make these, However, I was not a fan,which surprised me because I have a sweet tooth. Followed the recipe for the cupcakes exactly but followed other reviews for the frosting and only made half. They are by far not the best cupcake I've ever had. They really don't have flavor and the coconut adds nothing but more sugar and textu"

Feb 18, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

My first time ever making a tart or crust. I had an 11 inch tart pan so I really stretched out my dough to make fit, first mistake. Secondly I over baked my crust by an extra 8 min. When it was done it actually cracked, nonetheless I proceeded adding only 3/4 cup of lemon juice as suggested. The filling obviously was dripping out of the pan becau...

Oct 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Ok, so I finally made these today. I do find them a great substitute for pumpkin pie, I will be testing with my family this year. They are definitely sweet, rich, and dense. I might have cooked mine for a little too long since the bottom part of the cake was a little dark. Nonetheless, they are good but personally they are overrated. ""

These are absolutely deliciously sweet. I thought the spray would help as Paula suggested, and in her video they just popped right out!! Must be magic TV. Anyhow, the amount of dough that goes in... It has to be less than half for them to bake just to the rim. If they bake over when you remove them the tops will come right off leaving the rest in...
