Jan 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Easy to make. Not sure why it's categorized as intermediate. I agree with other reviews about adding more spices. My first batch I used 1/2t for all spices while still using 1t of salt. Tasted just fine. Not too spicy at all! The ceyenne pepper was not too strong, don't worry. With the 2nd batch I used 1t of all spices keeping the salt at 1t as w...

Perfect! Great flavors. I added orange blossom water and rose water though. I used both pistachio and walnut from the food processor. Any baklava is time consuming. The trick is to work fast with gentle hands. The moist towel can be tricky. Not too wet or the phyllo will stick.

DELICIOUS!!! And SOOOO pretty! So after reading the reviews, I used less gelatin. I also messed up my first batch of candy by cooking too long. I was waiting for the brown color that Paula had showed. By the time it got to that point it was too late. I still kept it and mixed it with whipped cream for a caramel whipped cream for something else. The...

Delicious!
Personally though, I would add more cauliflower next time. For as much cheese and cream it, in my opinion, could have held more cauliflower. But very good.

AARRGGG! Not easy to make....at least it wasn't for me. I've had Florentines before, I know they are good. I am just stubborn enough to keep trying. I had a catastrophe with the dough! It was completely crumbly and non cohesive. I think my problem may have been the fact that I was doubling the recipe, or that I didn't cook the sugar long enough. Either...

EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE TRY THIS RECIPE!!! It was hands down the best spinach/artichoke dip. I regret not doubling it for a party. Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. I do recommend using fresh spinach and parmesean, it's worth it. Spice it according to your preference. Chopping the spinach isn't necessary because blanching, squeezing and...

VERY GOOD! This recipe adds a different texture than your normal macaroon. My husband liked them and he can't stand coconut! The chocolate and nuts aren't necessary, but do taste good. They are best when fresh! Serve them on the same day you prepared them or they lose some texture even when stored as Alton suggested.

It was good. Nothing extraodinary. I basically used this recipe as a foundation since my husband and I like all the ingredients.

I used this recipe as a guidline. I didn't have cottage cheese so I used Ricotta. Tasted just fine. I added zucchini. I used dried spices instead of fresh b/c they're cheaper. I cooked it for at least an hour. I had so much left over that I made an additional 9X9 Lots O Meat Lasagna. I have no idea how just my hubby and I are going to eat all of ...
