Reviewed Salted Pretzel-Marshmallow Bars

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

These are a new favorite!!!!! I took the suggestions of previous reviewers and baked these in a 9x13 baking pan- they turned out perfect! I definitely think the 9x9 pan called for in the instructions is a mistake. With the change, the bars were the right thickness and they were super chewy and moist- even the edges were soft and chewy. I also thou"

Apr 23, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Super delicious! I love Giada's veggie sandwiches, and this one is awesome with all of the fresh herbs and the tangy goat cheese. Next time I will add some grilled onions to the mix. "

Jan 5, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I love this recipe! I have made this twice: once as directed by the recipe (which was amazing), and another time I made it with blackberries with a cookie crumb crust (all frozen in a spring-form pan). Both times I skipped the Toroni syrup, as I didn't have any on hand- it was plenty flavorful without it. A great alternative to ice cream cake when"

Reviewed German Chocolate Cake With Coconut-Pecan Cajeta Frosting

Sep 29, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This cake is simply divine! I followed the directions exactly as stated in the magazine and had no problems. I made the icing and ganache a day before the cake, which was great because the cake took about 5-6 hrs. Make sure to use the parchment paper as stated in the directions because it will contain the cake batter, otherwise the cake might over"

Reviewed Coconut Fish Sticks

Sep 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I LOVED this recipe! This was my first time making fish sticks, and so now the bar is set pretty high. Loved the texture of the coconut and the flavor of the mango chutney sauce- the addition of the onion is amazing. I left the lemon juice out of my chutney sauce because mine already had enough tang. Also, make sure to add enough salt and pepper t"

Reviewed Easy Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese Croutons

Sep 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I loved this combination! I decided to blend half of the soup mixture because I knew it would be a little too chunky for my tastes. I also added about a tablespoon of sugar to cut the acidity, and it turned out great! Loved the addition of the orzo. Next time I will probably leave out the cream, as it only called for 1/2 cup and I'm not sure that "

Reviewed Banana-Coconut Marshmallow Meringue Pie

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

The idea of this pie sounded SO promising that I just had to try! Unfortunately, I am a baking novice and the directions in the magazine are a little misleading, so my pie did not turn out amazing (though still yummy). First off, the amount of cookies/butter for the crust does not leave a substantial crust, so when all was said and done, it crumbl"

Yummy soup!!! I added rosemary, sage, and kale to the recipe and omitted the parmesan to make it vegan. I probably didn't add as much stock either, because I like my soups to be super thick. Great flavor and super hearty!!!""

Reviewed Pasta and Lentil Soup

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

I loved this soup! I used a hearty homemade style orchiette pasta called Delverde, and it totally added a depth and substance to the soup that was so comforting and so so delicious! I also added oregano and ginger since the recipe's call for spices wasn't enough flavor for me. Will definitely make this again, and I'm already looking forward to it...

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

This was so delicious! After allowing the custard mixture to soak into the bread for a few minutes, I used a spoon to mix it up a little and then added the rest of the mixture. I didn't have a problem with the bread soaking up the mixture. Next time I might add some extra brown sugar or maple syrup to give it an additional sweet note, but it was ...

Sep 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was my first time making carrot soup, and I am totally diggin it. I omitted yogurt and pine nuts because I didn't have any, added extra ginger, and an extra potato and it turned out wonderfully! Would love to use the nuts next time to examine the effect. Previous reviews report that their soup was bland, but every cook has to hone their cook...

Reviewed Tomatoes Roasted with Pesto

Jul 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I used this recipe for inspiration– I used my own recipe for pesto, and sliced fresh tomatoes, onion, and zucchini and threw them on the grill until the tomatoes were tender but firm and the onions and zucchini were caramelized. Topped the tomato slices with the pesto and grilled vegetables and it was absolutely delish!"

Reviewed Mushroom-Hummus Soup

Jan 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This soup had a very robust flavor (and I agree, perhaps a touch too much lemon juice), but I was almost overwhelmed by it as there were only mushrooms to give the soup any substance. I felt that it needed more– mushrooms, carrots, rice– something more hearty against which to balance the flavorful broth. The addition of the greek yogurt and lemon...
