Reviewed Simple Perfect Enchiladas

Jan 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I made this recipe tonight and my family really liked it. I liked the addition of green chiles, olives, and green onions to the beef filling. I don't think that all the liquid is necessary and I ended up not using all the sauce. As it was there was a lot of liquid in the bottom of the baking dish. Next time I would skip the chicken broth and just...

Reviewed Banana Nut Muffins

Nov 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These are the most delicious banana muffins I have ever tasted! I think using 4 bananas, 2 which are beaten with the eggs and sugar, and then the other 2 mashed and folded in with the nuts, really brings the banana flavor out. They were easy to do and I actually got 18 out of this batch!"

Reviewed Panettone Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce

Jan 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a great way to use Panettone. I actually cut the recipe in half because I had used part of the loaf to make Giada's French toast recipe. This dessert made a big hit in our household especially with some that don't like bread pudding. What I would do differently though, is bake the pudding mixture in another large pan filled with hot wa...

Reviewed Garlic and Citrus Chicken

Jan 4, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I cooked this dish last evening and it turned out to be a keeper! The citrus really lightens up the chicken and contributes to the moistness and flavor. I would probably not use a whole orange or whole lemon as it seemed to be almost too much to stuff in a four and a half pound chicken. I didn't have any orange juice concentrate so I just used...

Reviewed Panettone French Toast

Jan 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this for Christmas Day breakfast and it was wonderful! What a great way to use Panettone. I had never bought this bread before and was reluctant since I didn't know how to use it. The bread by itself is good toasted as well. Tonight I'm going to make Giada's bread pudding with the rest of the loaf! The only thing about this recipe that...

Reviewed Braciole

Jan 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this dish last evening and used my own marinara sauce with a cup of pinot grigio added. It was delicious and we all enjoyed it! I read that some of the reviewers found the meat tough and chewy, but ours was fork tender. I pounded and scored the flank steak, which was also choice grade and I think that makes a difference. After I put the...

Reviewed Heart-Shaped Whole-Wheat Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce

Oct 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These pancakes were light and delicious! This recipe didn't call for melted butter which most pancake recipes do and I was afraid they might stick to the griddle. I took the liberty of adding 2 Tbsp. of melted unsalted butter. I had no problems with sticking. The sauce was really good and we also tried them with maple syrup which also was delic...

Reviewed Free Range Fruitcake

Oct 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I wasn't a huge fan of fruitcake mostly because it contained so many candied fruits and tasted artificial. This recipe is the best! It contains all dried fruits and reminds me more of the British Christmas cake minus the marzipan. This cake is very moist, has really good flavors and gets better the longer it sits and the more you spritz it wit...

Reviewed Roast Breast of Turkey

Oct 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've made this turkey breast a few times and it's really delicious! It's also easy and uncomplicated. I did reduce the salt amount by half and it didn't seem to make a difference to me.""

Reviewed Whole Lotta Nuts Granola

Oct 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have been using this recipe for a long time. I have varied the ingredients using different nuts, seeds, and dried fruits, but the basic mixture of oats and honey is the same. My family enjoys it and I have used the granola as Christmas gifts to family and friends. It's made such a big hit that a neighbor asked me if I was going to make that ...

Reviewed Herb Roasted Pork Loin with Parsley Shallot Sauce

Oct 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a very flavorful way to cook a pork loin with the olive oil and herb crust. An added plus to this recipe was that I had these herbs in my garden so I didn't have to buy them, although dry herbs would have been fine. I didn't make the shallot sauce but I may try that when the weather is warmer again. I will say that the drippings with t...

Reviewed Ricotta Cheesecake with Fresh Raspberries

Oct 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I tried this recipe today and it was a big hit at my house! It was nice to try a cheesecake that is lighter but also not lacking in flavor. I omitted the orange zest because I didn't have any oranges on hand and just used vanilla in the mixture. I also added raspberry liqueur instead of orange liqueur to the jam mix and the flavor was delicious...
