Reviewed Corn Chowder

Jan 12, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I liked it - but the fact that it was so unhealthy (the 2 full cups of heavy cream!!) made me cringe with each bowl I kept eating! The soup was great. I didn't find it thick - maybe my potato pieces didn't break down because they weren't diced small enough - so I pureed some of the potato chunks. I'd say mine was a corn and potato soup, which was...

Nothing impressive. Added the potatoes like people suggested, but didn't find much flavor. It had a nice consistency, but would not make again.

Definitely tasty. Loved the pieces of apple in there to give it texture. I don't think it needed the glaze - tasted great without it - next time I will skip it. Also, the cake freezes well which is a plus!

Mar 19, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought this was a nice flavor -- I followed the advice of others and just used a little olive oil. I used regular cumin in the dressing instead of cumin seeds. I threw some frozen corn into the salad too for a southwest look. Would be great with some chicken! Nice fresh flavor. I'd definately make a bottle of the dressing to leave in the fr"

Reviewed Pear, Apple and Cranberry Crisp

Mar 19, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My company enjoyed it. I left the skin on the pears and apples, and used one less apple as I had filled the pan to the top. My only negative was that it was very watery/juicy on the bottom of the pan. "

Yum! Nice and easy, though chopping takes time. Made this vegetarian/dairy free and omitted pancetta and used veggie broth. Used spinach instead of swiss chard, and a bit of dried rosemary instead of fresh. All these tweaks made a delicious winter soup!"

Nice and quick to make. Followed the recipe, but left the fennel out since I don't like that flavor. Serve with some chips! Wonder if it freezes...."

Yum! I accidently forgot the last 1/4 bit of cheese, and it was plenty cheesy. The crumbs on top were a nice touch. Wish it were healthier! :-)""

Reviewed Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze

Nov 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The Thanksgiving crowd liked it -- not too sweet, nice and moist cake part. I was a little disappointed that the crumble wasn't perfectly crumbled, but was more of a layer. Like other reviewers said, the glaze did not harden, which was fine, but again, made the top layer a little mushy. The flavor was there though! Next time, I might use this ...

Nice and easy to make. Cinnamon flavor is subtle but enough. I used bittersweet chocolate but next time want to try semi-sweet. ""

Aug 5, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Nice alternative to simply grilling a pierce of salmon. I've put these on the outside grill too. I usually skip the bun too. The kids even like it, especially when they help me make the sour cream-cheese sause. YUM!""
