Reviewed One Bowl Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Nov 6, 2013 in on

This recipe is so great! Gluten free or not, this is now my go-to chocolate cake good, nobody would know it was wheat-flour-less! Sliced the cake in half and used fluffy vanilla frosting in the middle and on top....reminded me of devils food cake, very moist. Only lasted 2 days in this house. The fact it';s one bowl makes it e...

Pretty good....I did end up using more sauce to have enough and thought I wasn't going to have enough of the 'cheese'....supplemented the sauce by adding some we had pre-made on hand and when all was said and done the amount of tofu cheese was good! Great alternative to standard veggie lasagna, and I really like the extra protein from the tofu (n"

Sep 10, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was okay, not good, not bad....I reduced the amount of sugar in the dressing by more than half and it was plenty sweet enough, also added a tsp of vinegar as other suggested. I'm a HUGE salad person and really enjoy cabbage as well so figured this would be a sure thing....with all the flavors it just was a bit more bland and lacked the spunk"

Reviewed Whole Wheat, Honey Sweetened Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Apr 26, 2013 in on

This recipe was very good as a base, after making a few batches, I think I agree with the other review indicating the dough was a bit to thin. I prefer to decrease the honey by 1/4 to 1/2 cup....honey is sweeter than sugar, so is a bit overpowering in both flavor and sweetness at a full cup. Adding a bit more flour and oats helps the dough stif...

This recipe is great! I have made it as written, so feel good with the 5 star favorite is to swap and use 2 bananas with 2 apples (ground up in the food processor. I also add a tsp of vanilla and cinnamon, have swapped out spelt flour and added baking powder/soda for the self-rising, coconut oil in place of butter, made them in r"

I'm giving this 3 stars for the healthy ingredients (maple syrup, spelt flour etc), however the cake itself was not anything that could pass off with your 'average joe'. Very dry and heavy. Intended on using it as a birthday cake (not a big fan of sugary treats) but will continue to search for another recipe."

Reviewed Hummus For Real

Oct 24, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I was looking for a 'tonight' hummus recipe, so used canned beans, it came out really good! I LOVE hummus and falafel, and am always fairly bummed the recipes I find come out very un-authentic tasting. Now, I'm not going to say I could pass this at the middle-eastern restaurant down the street, but even my fellow agrees, this recipe is a keeper "

Yum, loved em ohh so much! Slight modifications (I know this makes people crazy, but some like it sweeter than others etc etc....)- doubled the vanilla, halved the sugar and used coconut oil in place of butter. The bottoms have a slight crunch that reminds of a macaroon with the coconut followed by yummy soft oatmeal cookie. I'm sure folks with...

Very yummy soup......I made alterations -I know, people hate reviews based on an altered recipe, but this was simply due to lack of prep time. So, if anything, skipping the short cuts (regular garlic, 14oz can chopped roasted tomatoes, low sodium chicken stock with 2 tsp dried Italian herbs) should result in an even better product. Used potatoe"
