Reviewed Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti

Dec 7, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

These were GREAT! I made them exactly like the recipe except that I didn't have hazelnuts on hand so I used pecans instead (we are iced in for the weekend!). I toasted them on 350 for about 8 minutes or so. While I was doing that was a great time to let the butter reach room temperature (a must!), plus the oven was heating up. I did chill the...

This was AWESOME! I could only find dried pasilla and ancho chiles and frankly they were expensive and came in a large bag. So, I substituted 2 fresh jalepenos and 3 seranos. I didn't do the microwave boiling thing. I just stemmed and seeded them and put them in the blender with the other ingredients. I did that part the night before and put "

This recipe is delicious! It makes a lot more than 4 servings! I used containers that held 16 oz of filling, it made four of these and then I have about 32 oz of filling left over that I froze to make this a quick meal for 2 again. I don't know about every other cook, but this recipe took me the better part of a morning. Prep always seems long"

These were awesome and super easy! Great taste! I only used the meatball recipe part though and then made the Simple Sauce that Giada has. It was really good!!! I am making them again this week!"

This sauce is awesome! It does make a lot and I did use San Marzano canned tomatoes. I also used quite a bit of butter to cut the acidity. It was perfect! It freezes very well and has been nice to take out for dishes to have fresh tomato sauce like meatballs and parmesan chicken. I will definitely make this again!"

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

These are AWESOME! So very easy to make and sooo delicious! The filling did make way to much and I made the sandwiches generously. They are light and fluffy and the frosting gives it just the right amount of sweetness. A perfect treat for Valentines Day. I made smaller ones and rolled them in sprinkles for the kids and made the Paula size on...

These were awesome! I made them into christmas trees and stars for a holiday party and dipped them in semi-sweet and white chocolate. They looked so professional. They were delicious! I think since my shape was different than the 2x3s that Ina did, the bake time was much shorter. They were done in about 12 minutes...otherwise the tips burned...

Reviewed Banoffee Mess

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

This was kind of a mess all right. The toffee turned out perfectly but took forever. I had to stay home and watch it on the stove. After all that time, it was just okay. My husband thought it was terrible, but the kids liked it okay. I keep a food journal and this was NOT worth the 728 calories per serving. "

Oh my! This was THE BEST carrot cake ever! My husband thought this was better than any he has ever had...anywhere...and I have to agree. It was absolutely divine! I did not see the episode however and didn't know to mix the tablespoon of flour with the raisins and walnuts, but it didn't matter. They did not all sink to the bottom. I would cu"

My husband liked this okay...and we love Tres Leches Cake. It was good, just too sweet. I love sweets but this was a bit much even for me. Don't know if I'll make it again; maybe with less sugar next time. FYI...682 calories per serving."

This was awesome! Absolutely delicious and easy to make. My husband is a real critic and he thought this was the best broccoli ever. I keep a food journal and needed to know the calories per serving so I put this recipe in and it is 227 calories per serving. "
