Reviewed Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Oct 3, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I have never made pancakes before... always ate the frozen pancakes which you microwave. This recipe seemed easy, so decided to give it a try. Even though I made some substitutions, it turned out so good!! I used all purpose flour instead of cake flour, and used 1 cup of 2% milk instead of evaporated milk. The pancakes were DELICIOUS!! Will d...

Jeff's energy and enthusiasm is infectious!! We watched the show and immediately planned to make this dish that day! We bought all the ingredients and made it all in under an hour. It was very good!! My only problem was that my lamb did not taste as good. It could be that I overcooked it - trying to crisp it up. Or maybe my ground lamb was very l...

Reviewed Sloppy Bombay Joes

Jun 1, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was so good!! I did not use pistachios and raisins, and put little sugar instead of honey. I also did not deseed the chile as we like spicy food. I also used only 1 tablespoon of oil - half for the sauce and half for the meat. Turned out really delicious. I have never had sloppy joes before, and an Indian version of it blew me away.

This is a really yummy stew! My husband and I are Indians and have been eating lentil stew for years - sometimes with vegetables in it, but this recipe is different. The combination of the butternut squash and coconut was totally new for us and we loved it! I did reduce the amount of coconut after reading some of the other reviews. I also did not...

Awesome cookies! The lemon flavor from the glaze is very refreshing. These turn out very soft like cake. Very easy to make. Everyone loved them!

This is such a simple recipe and I expected it to turn out good. But the poultry seasoning was way too much, and the dish needed way more chicken stock than what's written. An earlier review mentioned that in the video Rachael puts more chicken stock. Wish I had seen the video before making this recipe. I will have to repair this recipe on the stove...

Nov 26, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This was my first time making cranberry sauce, and it turned out so good and really easy to make! I did not have Grand Marnier (couldn't find small bottle at the store), so I added more orange juice instead.

Nov 26, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This was so delicious and easy to make!! I added rosemary & bay leaf to the cream. My family likes spicy food, so I also added a pinch of garam masala to the cream. This is one of those recipes that you can't go wrong with. Make sure to slice the potatoes very thin. The crispy potato layer on top was the best part. I topped it with a mixture of panko...

Reviewed Best Ever Green Bean Casserole

Nov 26, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

This dish was really good and had great flavors! Even those who don't like green beans much really liked this dish. It was everyone's favorite. I boiled the beans in low-sodium chicken stock and used 3 garlic cloves which added more flavor. I used store bought fried onions to save time. I had to add more flour to thicken the gravy. The only thing...
