Reviewed Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Jan 29, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made drop scones instead of cutting into triangles, because that's how my favorite bakery makes them. I didn't have heavy cream, so I used some half-and-half and some 1% milk, which propbably resulted in a bit less rich flavor. Overall, I liked them and would make again. Making the glaze on a double boiler was not effective. In the future, I'll...

Nov 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My family has long enjoyed "scalloped corn," something my grandma always used to make. This is a good, easy version of that. I used frozen corn instead of canned [for the regular corn] and skipped the cheese. ""

Reviewed Herb Roasted Turkey Breast with Pan Gravy

Nov 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Absolutely fabulous. Made this instead of a full turkey for our family's early Thanksgiving. So easy and delicious. Most flavorful and moist breast meat I've ever had. Usually I am disappointed with turkey. This time, not the case. (Didn't make the apple gravy. Made a standard pan gravy instead.)""

Reviewed Pumpkin Cheesecake

Nov 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe makes too much filling (9" springform) and the cook time is not long enough. I did a water bath and it leaked into my pan (which is brand new), but I'm not letting that impact my review. The flavors are good. The recipe numbers need tweaking. The cheesecake itself was good though. ""

First time I ever made real gravy. Turned out great. One thing this recipe doesn't mention is that you want your total liquid, both drippings and broth, to equal four cups. If you have lots of drippings, reduce your broth quantity. Be sure to strain your gravy at the end so that it's smooth. Will make this again!""

Really easy and quite delicious. This recipe is really sweet. I'm interested to try some of the variations with curry. All in all, it's a keeper and has lots of potential to experiment with.""

Reviewed Cinnamon Rolls

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

These are great! Did one trial run then made the second batch for annual extended family brunch (in February...a little late on the review). They were the most popular dish of the day. One thing I do recommend is turning your oven on low and putting bowl/pan on exhaust burner (especially if your house is as cold as mine). This helps immensely wit...

Reviewed Chocolate and Strawberry Stuffed French Toast

Sep 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

We like to take this recipe and adapt with all kinds of fillings. This morning I did fresh raspberries and chocolate. Don't soak in the custard unless you have a really thick/crusty bread. Just dip in and out. It also works out to "finish" it in the oven (while waiting for your coffee to brew or bacon to finish frying). Overall, it's easy and a n...

Reviewed Butternut Dumplings with Brown Butter and Sage

Sep 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Check out the YouTube video for the Good Eats episode Squash Court. I followed that, which was helpful. After reading the reviews, I decided to wring out my squash to reduce water content. After scraping it out of the shell, I put it into a clean kitchen towel and squeezed most of the water out. I didn't have to add much extra flour that way. I r...
