All I can say is YUM. You cant go wrong with graham cracker crust, chocolate, and caramel. There are a few steps to this recipe but they are worth it and really pretty simple. The caramel step is the only step where you really have to pay attention... just keep a close eye on it. "

May 3, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I had never had a tres leches cake before and I'm usually not real keen on "wet cake" textures BUT this cake was awesome! I gave it a try in spirit of cinco de mayo and now I'm definitely hooked. I followed the recipe almost exactly except.... I added vanilla to the batter and whipped cream frosting, I omitted the orange liqueur because I wanted t"

Feb 10, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

such a delicious bruschetta recipe. I love how the garlic is sauteed before adding it to the tomato. I added some chopped red onion for extra flavor/color and instead of pan frying the bread I lightly oiled and broiled it. "

loved this recipe! I added sweet potato and swiss chard and i used poultry seasoning instead of thyme... it worked out so well. I saw reviews that there wasnt enough biscuit to go around so i just made 4 large biscuits on top since i was cooking for 3 people and it was just right. Ill just make up a fresh batch of biscuits or use bread for the lef"

I made cupcakes with this recipe and they had great lemony flavor. While baking, I had to watch them like a hawk because they seemed to be real easy to over bake and they werent the prettiest cakes I'd ever seen. I think the cake is a bit more pound-cake texture so it doesnt rise as well. But i topped them with some lemon buttercream so overall th"

Tasty butter sage sauce! I used Giada's recipe as a base idea mostly since I added sauteed mushroom, onion, and peas to add some color and veggies. I also cut half the butter and added white wine to taste. Turned out sooo yummy!"

perfect cakey pumpkin cookie! These cookies turned out just as i had wanted them to... so good! I halved the recipe and it made exactly 30 cookies. I also added about 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and I went a bit heavier on the spices because I love those fall spice flavors. Tip: dont be afraid to bake these the full amount since they are a cakey textu"

I agree with some of the other reviews. This cheesecake had great flavor but the texture was a bit too creamy for me. I am pretty sure i baked it enough since it was in the oven longer than the recipe said but the center of the cake was a bit too soft. I think I'd try some other recipes before using this one again. Also, watch it on the lemon zest"

Good idea to use up garden tomatoes! I added some mozzarella and parm cheese to the top for extra goodness. "

i used the mustard chive sauce recipe on baked salmon filets and it was very tasty. My family gave it good reviews and they arent always big on the "healthy" yogurt sauces. The only thing I'd say is watch the honey because I used half the amount and it was pretty sweet. "

very good flavors and a great way to use all the tomatoes from my garden. i used mozzarella cheese instead because I already had it at home. The only problem was the cheese got more crusty rather than melty like i had expected, but it gave the tomatoes a nice crunchy topping. I would make this again for sure."

sooo good! i used rolled out store-bought pie crust and served it with vanilla ice cream... everything worked out perfectly. The flavors went so well together. I will definitely make this recipe again. "
