Reviewed Peaches and Cream Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce

Dec 5, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This recipe was nothing short of amazing! My friend loves bread pudding, and I was looking for a recipe to turn into cupcake size for individual portions for her birthday party. The bread pudding and the sauce are good I ate 2. I added a little more bread since I didn't use a pan, and the consistency was very wet (about a pound and"

Reviewed Double Chocolate Pudding Pie

Feb 27, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This pie was amazing! I did a couple different things. I used storebought chocolate graham pie crust, brushed it with eggwash and baked in the oven for five minutes before I filled the pie. I didn't have bittersweet chocolate so I used semisweet, and the pie wasn't too sweet. I followed the pudding recipe exactly besides that and it came out ...

This recipe was delicious! I ended up using just mascarpone because that's what i had on hand, and the filling was very creamy. Next time I will try with the cream cheese, it probably has a stronger cheese flavor. Mostly the pastry was chocolatey which I love anyway. I didn't understand the fold either, so I just did a turnover type fold and ...

Reviewed Mini Orange Chocolate Chunk Cake

Sep 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This recipe is delicious! I didn't have the fancy mold, so I just used a cupcake pan. The batter filled 12 cupcakes perfectly. Mine rose a little more than it did in the show, but the cake itself was so moist and perfect even without the orange simple syrup. Definitely use the simple syrup though it added a nice sweetness to the cake. In the...

Reviewed Lemon and White Chocolate Pots de Creme

Sep 9, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

These pots de creme were excellent. Thanks to the other reviewers regarding the oven temperature. I baked them at 325 and they were perfect. The fresh raspberries really make the dessert something extra special. They are still good without it, but a bit sweet. The raspberries add that wonderful freshness that Giada is so good at. Thanks for...

This drink was delicious! It was very refreshing for our hot summers in Hawaii. I liked the little chunks of fruit, and it made me feel less bad drinking this kind of soda. I used less of the simple syrup, but that's just a personal preference. Giada is so wonderful at taking simple ingredients and making an amazing recipe."

Reviewed Chocolate Pots De Creme with Cherry Whip

Jul 17, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was the first time I ever tried making a pots de creme, and it made me feel like a rockstar baker! This recipe was so delicious, and the cherry whipped cream was the perfect compliment. It's fancy enough to make for company and easy enough to make during the week. It's the perfect dessert."

Reviewed Baked Manicotti with Sausage and Peas

Mar 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

The overall flavor of the dish was really good. I liked the sweet bursts of peas and the creaminess of the fondutta with the texture of the ricotta. I would definitely make this again but maybe as a lasagna. Manicotti was a little difficult to stuff and sort of came apart anyway."

Reviewed Blueberry and Thyme Collins

Mar 15, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I read the initial review and cut back the sugar to 1/2 cup instead of a cup, and the drink came out really good. Admittedly it is a little sweet but the recipe sounds sweet, so I expected it. The thyme is a wonderful unexpected flavor, and the soda adds a nice touch. It tastes like an expensive cocktail from a nice restaurant or resort. I would...

Reviewed Double Chocolate and Espresso Cookies

Mar 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I tried this recipe after watching the show because it looked so delicious. Let me just say it is the best chocolate cookie I have ever had!!! It is a wise idea to use a measured scoop. Some of my scoops were a little too big. The cookies that were bigger were more of a brownie consistency because I didn't want to leave the cookies in too long...they...
