Simple, quick and easy. This is now my go-to pizza crust recipe. Does great on the grill too!

Reviewed beef and bean burritos

Mar 30, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

These were a hit. Made exactly as written. I don't think any tweaks will happen in the future either. Two thumbs up!

OMG! This is now my go to chocolate ice cream recipe. A little labor intensive and a definite diet buster but so worth it!

Jan 10, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I am not the frozen box brussel sprout eater - blech! But my mom made this for Christmas and I'm hooked. She also mixed in some bacon and it was even better. Just keep watching them b/c depending on your oven they could cook quicker.

Delish! Simple. Easy. Flavorful. I wouldn't change a thing.

I made this for a co-workers birthday at her request. Holy butter! The overall reviews were good though. I could not find maple sugar in any grocery store and did not have time to order it online.

My sis and I brought this to a family reunion and it was a hit. My glass bowl tapers at the bottom so it got a little challenging with making sure it all fit. But it was beautiful and tasted great! "

This was awesome! Definitely a once in a while treat as it is quite decadent. But very worth it. Made recipe exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. "

I did 2 potatoes for 50 mins with exact directions from the recipe and they just came out like regular baked potatoes. ""

Reviewed Penne with Shrimp and Herbed Cream Sauce

Dec 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a hit with the in laws and hubby. I read most of the reviews first and before deciding to tweak anything, I made it exactly how it is written. After I tasted, I decided to add a little garlic powder and that amped up the flavor some. I also made the sauce first, kept it on low, then cooked the pasta. I think that added extra time of the ...

I tried tilapia before and thought I didn't like it until l prepared it with this recipe. Super tasty and easy for a quick week night dinner.""

Reviewed Sonny's Onion Rings

Aug 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I've never made onion rings before so this was great for my first try! I added some "Baby Bam" (from Emeril) to the flour mixture to season it up and it gave great flavor. I also shallow fried the onions since I don't have a deep fryer. And then of course seasoned with salt as soon as I took them out of the oil. Will definitely try again!""

My go to shrimp recipe! Excellent either grilled or sauteed in a skillet. "

Apr 19, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I followed the recipe exactly as written but I think my problem was that I used extra lean ground beef. It was good but it just fell apart and didn't hold its shape. That's what I get for trying to make Paula recipes figure friendly! "

Apr 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was good but I guess I'm just used to the denser, potato version my mom and grandma used to make. These were too spongy for me and were just "eh". Even cutting the recipe in half still made a ton. "

If you are after chocolate, these are your brownies! So, so good. However I put mine in an 8x8 glass dish and relied on the cooking spray to release them when I went to go cut them. Wrong! They totally stuck to the pan. Next time I will listen to an earlier poster and line the dish with parchment. They were messy but still good! "

This was fabulous! (the rating thing was messed up but I did give it 5 stars). My sis brought me back espresso flavored salt from NYC and I used it both inside and on top. So tasty and addictive!
