Reviewed Flat Apple Pie with Perfect Pie Crust

May 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Mine was less then perfect and super "rustic". I really want to get better at making pie crusts and will try this again after I watch her demonstration on tv. I used my food processor and must have processed too much. Still smells yummy as it is cooking can't wait to taste."

Deliciously addicting and so easy. The hardest part is making sure I have ripe avocados to make the recipe. The second time I made this I added cilantro."

Reviewed Twice-Baked New Potatoes

Wanted to use up my russet potatoes. Had to cook a bit longer but these were yummy. Next time will use the new potatoes and make sure they are cooked for the right consistency."

Agreed-delicious and very filling. Stuck with your ingredients and did cook a bit longer thanks to other reviews. Baking on the roasting pan was a great tip-thank you for always teaching me new tricks and delicious meal ideas for my family."

Reviewed Lettuce Cups with Tofu and Beef

Delicious flavors- I love tofu and meat. The pepper and the peanuts were a great addition to an EASY meal! I will find the right kind of lettuce next time!""

Reviewed Mom's Turkey Meatloaf

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

I enjoyed smelling the aroma of the onions on top while the turkey loaf baked. Both my husband and son cleaned their plates and since they normally would prefer "meatloaf" I'm happy to serve them a healthier choice that we all enjoyed. I had the side dish Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives that was also delicious.""

Reviewed Chicken Parmigiana

Mar 11, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Not so easy for me. Didn't get my chicken pounded thin enough so I put it in a 350 oven while the sauce was thickening. Chicken wound up a bit dry. Flavors were pretty good---I did add extra seasonings to the flour used to coat the chicken. Fresh basil really makes a different. Will keep trying your recipes! ""

Love this refreshingly different cookie! The spreading that happened on my first attempt was resolved after adding a bit more flour and chilling the dough a bit before baking. Yummy!""

Gave this recipe another go, cause my son liked these. This time I cooked on my panini grill and the burgers came out great all in one piece and just 3 minutes....Thanks Melissa""

Disappointed in these burgers. They fell apart and I only wound up with 4 of the 8. Once on the buns they tasted okay. Maybe it would have helped if I used a teflon grill pan instead...so I may try that next time.""

Reviewed Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Feb 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Getting ready to make these again for my book club meeting this week. You can eat these without feeling guilty and my favorite part is the lighter frosting with the hint of lemon. Try it next time Kmckline.""

Feb 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a keeper and have shared it with my mom who makes it all the time! You can't really mess this recipe up (I've been know to do that). I have all three of your recipe books and enjoy learning how to stock my cupboard and eat healthy versions of all my favorites. Thank you Ellie!""

Reviewed Thai Red Curry Mac 'n' Cheese

Feb 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I had some Thai Red Curry to use up so I thought I'd give this a try. I'm not sure I like the flavor in mac and cheese. At least my family gave it a try! Thanks for sharing...""

Reviewed Black Bean Brownies

Jan 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I wouldn't have believed black beans were in these if I hadn't put them in myself. Shared the recipe with my mom and she rates these a 10! Keep the great recipes coming and all of your cooking tips.""

Reviewed Meatloaf with Mustard and Sour Cream Gravy

Jan 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Great new flavor experience with the bacon on top. The gravy was also delicious. Mine fell apart a bit even though I had let it rest well over 10 minutes. Love your show and recipes Melissa, thanks!""

Reviewed Apple Brown Betty

Jan 22, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

So easy so delicious! Used up my frozen bread, added some cinnamon and topped with whipped cream. Thanks for helping me learn to stock my pantry too.""
