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

This recipe is absolutely wonderful. Be warned- this is the largest, most decadent cake I have ever made, and had to bring it to work and leave it in different places for it to be finished. But this cake was fairly easy to make- there are a lot of steps, but they are all pretty straightforward, and if you follow the directions, it turns out perf"

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

I've made this recipe about 4 times now, and every time I'm more impressed with how great this turns out. This recipe is unbelievably easy to make, the hardest part being squeezing the large amount of key limes you need to get 1 cup of juice. I wouldnt suggest cutting corners here- squeeze the key limes and you'll get an amazing tart pie. I hav"

Reviewed Emeril's Favorite Tortilla Soup

Aug 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe is excellent- the only problem? I wanted to have more left over to throw in the fridge for next time! This soup is just spicy enough with a jalapeno, the homemade corn tortilla chips with Emeril's Essence are amazing. I'm thinking next time I might add some corn and black beans for a more robust soup, but this isnt necessary. I didn"

This soup turned out so much better then I ever could have hoped for. I also like some other reviewers could not find veal stock, so I used 1 organic beef stock and 1 organic (low sodium) vegetable stock. I also decided not to use sherry and put in a little extra wine and brandy, and followed all other directions exactly. On top, I put a nice b"

Aug 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I was pretty concerned the entire time I was making this, mainly because I've never made homemade pudding before. I was so concerned that it wouldn't have enough chocolate, so I added a bit more- and I really could have done without the extra chocolate. It still tasted really good, but was completely unnecessary. I was also concerned because wh"

Reviewed Lemon Bars

Jul 31, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have made this recipe twice now, and each time I've gotten lots of compliments on it. After reading some of the negative comments below, I was concerned, but here's the real bottom line. These are lemon bars, and they're extremely lemon-y. If you dont like lemon flavors, this recipe isnt for you. These are also very sweet- which helps to cut "

Reviewed Chocolate Truffles

Jul 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made truffles for the first time about a week ago using this recipe. Again, AB has everything perfect (but thats no surprise!). One note to begin with- these are dark chocolate truffles- so if you're expecting/want milk chocolate, this recipe isnt for you. I followed just about every part of this recipe (with the exception that I didnt have a"

Jul 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I saw AB make this on one of his episodes, and have been wanting to try it for quite some time. After reading some reviews, and then reading more about the caramel making process, I decided to not cook the caramel to 350 degrees as AB suggests (this is what makes it dark caramel) and cook it only to about 325-330. At this stage, the caramel is pe"
