Reviewed Squash Gratin

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

I have always been intimidated to bake with fresh squash because I wasn't sure how to break down the various varieties. When I saw the steps laid out in this month's Food Network Magazine I decided to give it a try. I am SO glad I did! This recipe is amazing! Aside from the time it took to get everything skinned, seeded, and chopped, this was a si"

Sep 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Great recipe Bobby! I took another reviewer's comment about the sauce being too oily and cut the oil in half which was perfect. Heat was mild, may kick it up a notch next time. Paired with cilatro/lime rice. Dessert was Coconut Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (added pineapple, cream of coconut, and coconut milk), pina colada popcicles for late"

Perfection! I was hesitant to try this recipe at first, based on some of the negative reviews. I tried a different english muffin recipe but was disappointed with the texture. I came back to this one, looking for more nooks and crannies. Boy, am I glad I gave these a try! I didn't have any muffin rings on hand so I made my own out of aluminum foil"

These are simply amazing! Such an easy recipe, such delicious results. I followed the advice of others and reduced the amount of chocolate chunks....I was glad I did (used about a pound). Also, I had to bake for about 33 minutes in order to fully bake the blondies. I think that people who find these too "gooey" may be underbaking them. I wil...

Reviewed Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Aug 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was the best pineapple upside-down cake my husband and I have ever tried! Moist, sweet, and looked beautiful too. I definitely agree that this cake does not need the frosting. It is sweet enough with the brown sugar and pineapple. I had no problem stacking the cake and really enjoyed the pineapple between the layers as well. Great recip...

I thought these cookies were good but not great. I was hoping for that "wow" factor with this recipe. I don't think the pretzel m-n-ms provided enough of the salty flavor I was looking for to create a good sweet and salty contrast."

Reviewed Caramelized Banana Cream Pie with Hazelnut Whipped Cream and Hazelnut Praline

Apr 29, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this pie for our dessert on Easter and it was amazing! By far the best banana cream pie I have ever eaten. The hazelnut brittle on top added something really special. I took the advice of another reviewer and removed the hazelnut skins by soaking the nuts in water with baking soda for several minutes. That made a huge difference in my a"

Jan 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Never liked Vegetable Lasagna till I ate this. Usually they are bland and mushy. Not this recipe! Great flavors from the sauce and textures from grilling the veggies. I'd be very happy to eat it again, but making it was extremely time intesive. It took much more than 1 hr to prep as the recipe states. Any suggestions on cutting down the time this...
