I was looking for a Cincinnati Chili type recipe and this fit the bill. It uses turkey so it is healthy too! I made the recipe exactly as shown. I did use whole wheat spaghetti...It is a keeper!

Fantastic fall drink! I was looking for a "Fall" flavored martini and I thought I would give this a try. I made it just as shown except I used the Apple Pie Liquor as suggested by another reviewer. I added the crushed cinnamon graham to the rim, and I did include the cream soda. I think it adds a nice balance to the liquors in the martini. All our...

This is a very easy yet delicious bundt cake that needs only a dusting of powdered sugar on top, if desired. I made this for Easter a couple of years ago and EVERYONE loved it. It is requested that I make for various functions over the year. Very moist with a great lemon flavor. I have also had many requests for the recipe. Thanks Paula!"

I made this several times and absolutely LOVE it and so did my guests. Very easy to make and looks beautiful in the trifle bowl. Great because you can make it ahead of time, put in the fridge overnight and you are good to go for dessert the next day. The pudding did indeed firm up overnight. I stuck with the recipe, and used gingerbread cake and t"

I wanted to try Irish Soda bread for St. Patrick's Day so I thought I would try this recipe. I have Ina's cookbook that contains this recipe. It was fantastic! Very easy to make, very good flavor.I found the Sun Maid currants at a local grocery store. I served this along with Shepherd's Pie for dinner. Great lightly toasted with butter. Will be"

Feb 27, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I needed an appetizer for an Oscar party and my best friend recommended these. They were delicious and a huge hit. What I did different was use sun dried tomato and herb goat cheese to gave it a little more flavor. I did not have red onion on hand so I did yellow onion, chives and scallions. If you cook them long enough they will not be soggy. I"

I received one of Ree's cookbooks for Christmas and this recipe was in the book. Made them on New Year's Day for breakfast. I thought they were fabulous! Very flaky with a wonderful flavor. The recipe made 8 , so I took a few over to my neighbors. They called and told me "they were freakin' awesome", so they were loved by all. I did agree with a"

Reviewed Sunny Anderson's Caribbean Chicken Wings

Nov 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I received this recipe in my Food Network magazine quite some time ago. Since the habanero pepper is really hot, I only used half the pepper. These wings are excellent! The flavors are great, the wings are browned and tasty on the outside and the chicken meat inside is very moist and tender. I am making these for Thanksgiving too! Best wings EVER."

I really like this chili...I do not like the "5 alarm" type, way too hot, so this was just what I was looking for. I did use diced tomatoes and added a little more chili powder along with a bit of hot sauce. My husband really loved it too...we served it with corn muffins. Good food on a cold winter night here in the Chicago area!!

These were delicious! After viewing this show, I decided to try it on Halloween night. We had six adults, and they ALL gave it a thumbs up! The only thing I changed was the mustard, I had a sweeter dijon, so I used that instead of the spicy brown. I had to print up the recipe for two of the guests. I loved using the ground chicken, very healthy and...
