A home run! The cookies taste and look great, but the best thing about them was that I keep all the ingredients in my pantry!

Reviewed Broccoli Rabe With Garlic

Jan 8, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I make this dish all the time (before Ina presented it on her show). A local church serves it at their Italian Festival on a fresh italian bread roll; Italian Greens Sandwich. I eat it with and without the bread at home. It's just soooo good!

Dec 29, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Easy and delicious! Worth the mess! So many ways to use them-I served them as a side to a filet roast, but will use them on burgers, green bean casserole, to garnish french onion soup, as a snack, etc.

Dec 29, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Surprisingly good! We love calamari and wanted to try a recipe that was not deep fried. The reviews on this recipe were good so I thought, this is the one. I was very enthusiastic until I was actually making it; as it was nearly done, I thought the ingredients seemed too mundane to create a great dish. I tasted it right away and it was only OK,...

Never made carrot cake before, but this one was just too easy to pass on. It was perfect and disappeared quickly both at home and at work! Got rave reviews. Only change I made was in location of the pecans; I didn't like the idea of mixing the nuts into the frosting, so I mixed some of them into the batter and sprinkled the remainder on top of th"

Reviewed Broccoli Cheese Soup

May 26, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Easy, healthier than others and delicious. My daughter loved this soup. I also used chicken broth for the liquid. I've had better but without a doubt, those soups had a considerably higher fat content. This one is worth making so you can eat it with less guilt"

Reviewed Simple Perfect Enchiladas

May 4, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made them with chicken instead-I seasoned and roasted the chicken, sauteed the onion, added the chopped chicken to the onion and sauteed the mixture until slightly browned. Finished the recipe as written. FANTASTIC!!!!! If you don't find these enchiladas flavorful enough, you are not using the right ingredients (quality canned products, good chees"

Reviewed Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic and Cranberries

Feb 17, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Made these over the holidays and making them again today for a family get together. They were a bigger hit than I even thought they would be. My glaze didn't seize up and I wonder if that is because I always roast my brussel sprouts with EVOO and I tossed the sprouts with the glaze as opposed to just pouring it over them. I decreased the ratio "

Jan 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So good and so easy!!!!! Convenient-Same as some of the other reviewers; I had this in the oven baking along side our main course. Versitile-Easy to change up the fruit. Very little prep time, few ingredients, fantastic flavor! What more could you want?""

Sep 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Have sauteed a few different types of greens, but never had collard greens before. This was first time for me to both make & taste them. Easy and delicious. Excellent accompaniment to the other dishes in this episode.""

Reviewed Ricotta Thyme Spaetzle

Sep 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Loved this version of spaetzle. This is the easiest way to make homemade "pasta" that I know. I have never incorporated ricotta cheese into my spaetzle, but this ingredient created a moist and silky texture. One theme I noticed throughout this episode was her emphasis on salt and would agree that you do need to use a lot to achieve the right leve...

Reviewed Pork Roast with Hard Cider Gravy

Sep 26, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Loved this! Made the roast, spaetzle and greens. Took other reviewer's advise and made some changes. Did not want to use hard cider so I used apple cider and brandy instead. I also added thyme, sage and garlic. Like other cooks, I had to continue cooking my roast 25 additional minutes to reach 145 degrees. I used a hand held blender to puree my g...

I followed the recipe as directed & made these for a party. There were some guests that surprised me by even trying them, but everyone raved about them!
I thought my husband (who loves spicy food) would not be impressed saying these were bland. In particular, I suspected he might be critical about using apple as part of the filling. But...he...
