Jul 7, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Tried the drsg with a different taco salad and it was delicious. The drsg was so easy to make and kept well for two days. Next time I am definitely making this whole recipe, can't wait!"

Reviewed Coconut Fried Shrimp with Dipping Sauce

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

My first time making Coconut Shrimp and my husband loved it! My husband rated this because I am allergic to shellfish and did not eat any (In case you are wondering, I use utensils and/or gloves when handling or cooking shellfish). I made a dipping sauce out of orange marmalade, Heinz chili sauce and white wine vinegar; my husband liked it so much"

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

I loved it and so did my husband! The only change I made was adding 1/3 cup of white granulated sugar to the crust when mixing. Otherwise, I followed the written recipe exactly, using only egg yolks in the filling and saving the whites for the meringue. Everything turned out beautiful and it was my first Key Lime Pie. The zest in the meringue was"

Still trying to recover from this brillant cheese! I will NEVER buy store bought ricotta cheese again. Who knew this was so easy? Absolute comforting delirium. My thoughts are spinning with topping ideas and I am going to have to just sit down with a pen and paper and write them all down. And don't even get me started on homemade manicotti,stuffed"

May 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I'm sorry, maybe it's just my taste buds, but I found this to be a greasy, overpowering sauce that left a bitter garlic aftertaste in my mouth. I couldn't even stand the smell of it and I LOVE garlic and butter... I mean, what is not to celebrate there? Well, no celebration here, just basically TOO much of a good thing. Sorry, Melissa "

May 25, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Seriously, the best EVER! Absolute comfort. I made the homemade ricotta and then used Ciabatta bread for the bruschettas and toasted in a cast iron pan. I also put a few tbsp of plain ricotta to the side and served topped with orange marmalade. My head is spinning with topping ideas... carmalized praline bacon, fig preserves, apricot preserves, ho"

Ok, let me just say... WE......HOO.....!!!!!! Love this. I have never made a Frittata before and waala, beautiful and yummy and easy and I'll be doing this again and trying all kinds of different fillings. My brain is already spinning with ideas. I added sweet peppers and onions cause, what the heck...why not? Also, did not use olive oil because I"

Came out nice, pretty color, but not sweet enough for me or my husband and I used an extra tbsp. of sugar. I am also not a big fan of "bubbly", but thought I would give this a try. Won't make this again, but I will try the same thing using my favorite wine next time."

Are you kidding??? Sooooo juicy and tender!! I have NEVER enjoyed a steak cooked indoors until now and I may never go back to the outside grill. Unbelievable and almost impossible to do anything, but chew and moan. I did ribeyes instead of filets and seasoned with sea salt, black pepper and garlic powder. You have got to try this!!"

Ummm... Soooo yummy! Made this for dinner this evening. Very quick and easy. Of course, I can never leave a recipe alone without doing somethin to it. I used bacon grease instead of butter - why, you ask? Because I could :) Added some thinly sliced red onion in with my angel hair coleslaw,used white wine vinegar and added alittle sprinklin of cara"
