Reviewed Creme De Menthe Brownies

Dec 8, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These brownies are a perfect holiday treat. I used 7oz of the andes mints instead of 10 based on the recommendation in another review. This was a perfect amount - not overwhelming. Couldn't find the chips so chopped the mint squares in the food processor. Store bought chocolate frosting also works as a quick substitute.""

Reviewed Sausage with Garlic Lentils

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

I happened to have all of these ingredients on hand, minus the bay leaf, and it made a great supper with leftovers. I will use chicken broth to cook the lentils next time to add a bit more flavor.""

Reviewed Apple Brown Butter Tart

Oct 10, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Doubt there'll be any left by the time my husband comes home to try it, I might just devour it all myself!! What a quick and EASY recipe, and a perfect way to use up a lot of the apples we picked during an orchard outing a couple days ago. I wanted to use ingredients I had on hand, and made a couple modifications that worked very nicely: only 1/...

I've just made this recipe for chocolate chip cookies for the third time. Perfect every time!

Reviewed Dirty Risotto

I had all of the ingredients except pancetta on hand, so I just used two Italian sausage links. This risotto was flavorful, easy, and delicious. Will definitely make this again!

Reviewed Turkey-Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Dec 27, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The turkey stuffing served with pesto orzo is delicious - the zucchini boats are eh. I cooked up regular ground turkey because I hadn't made the turkey meatballs from the base recipe. All in all, super easy and tasty, but next time I will just make the turkey stuffing and stuff it (maybe with the pesto orzo mixed in) into some other veggie like...

Reviewed Seared Foie Gras with Pain Perdu and a Fresh Cranberry Compote

Dec 26, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Notwithstanding the general debate surrounding foie gras (I agree with other posters, not appropriate for this website) this recipe is excellent. Making the pain perdu is very simple, and searing the foie gras was equally simple (although I had never done it before). Definitely be sure to use a cold knife to cut the foie, as the directions recommend....

Reviewed Creamed Spinach

Dec 26, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is a very good recipe for very good (but not excellent) creamed spinach. The best part about this recipe is that it is ridiculously easy to follow/make. I followed previous raters' advice and did not kill the spinach by over-salting. The seasoning turned out perfectly. The only slight change is I will add a bit less egg the next time - it...

Reviewed Baked French Toast Casserole with Maple Syrup

Dec 23, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I stole the idea of another food network episode, when Giada did a Panettone French Toast, and used panettone in this casserole recipe. MAN was this a hit!!! I followed the recipe exactly (except for the panettone substitution) and it was all gone by the end of the brunch. Highly recommend it, and will definitely make this again.
