Reviewed Crispy-Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies

Feb 28, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made three batches of these cookies and they burned every time. I even removed them from the baking sheet to the cooling rack immediately so they did not continue to burn and they were still burned. I watched each batch, waiting for them to get golden brown around the edges but still light in the center and they still burned. Too bad. After scr...

These were so easy to make it's crazy and awesome! I would recommend adding a little salt to the caramel at the beginning of the process. Also, after you have completed "nuking" it I would add some vanilla extract and stir it in. Then... they would be perfect! I made cutouts and covered them with dark chocolate. To die for!"

I ended up making this with cashews and mascarpone cheese and it was divine! Very unusual so my husband did not like it but I loved the combination of savoury with sweet and the drizzle of honey at the end took it over the top. Reminded me of a vegetarian pate. Elegant, unique and I thought, absolutely delicious. ""

These truly are perfect! And you can add cheese and herbs to them to take them over the edge. Big hit at my family's get-together, everyone loved them. I made them a bit smaller so there would be more of them, just baked them for around 10-12 minutes instead. Fabulous! Totally loved the folding over technique, made perfect layers which created be...

Absolutely delicious! Super easy to make. This makes the perfect inexpensive summer side dish. I used yellow zucchini so for some colour added green onions and topped with some sour cream. Stunning. Thank you!""

I enjoyed these cookies but did not fall in love with them as much as everyone else. They were quite dry and making them that big turned them more into a meal than a treat. That said, my husband loved them and we both enjoyed having dried fruit and chocolate together in a cookie this way. Chopped dried apricots worked perfectly. ""

These were wonderful and I am so glad that they use vegetable oil. My only issue is mine puffed up so much they were more like pitas than tortillas. Perhaps it was because it was so warm that day. Next time I will cut back on the baking powder and hope for the best."

It is surprising that this does get rich and creamy without any cream at all, thanks to the bananas. I did find that after a while my food processor just spun around and couldn't whip it anymore. I was adding a coffee syrup to mine for sweetening and it did not get incorporated very well. Still, this is very delicious and if you like to have a lot"

Reviewed Easy Shrimp Potstickers

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

I have to disagree. I found these potstickers pretty boring. A little finely chopped fresh ginger and some oyster sauce would have gone a long way. I found the dumplings under seasoned and using soy sauce for the dipping sauce like Sunny recommends in the episode if you do not have ponzu ended up being too salty. Sadly they did not balance each other...

What a great recipe! Simple and delicious, impressive. I would recommend roasting the veggies on parchment. I put them on an oiled tray and they stuck like crazy, thought I was going to have to throw my tray out so I can not give it a perfect score. Very tasty tomato soup though! ~ Suzie the Foodie"

Now I don't like rice pudding but this recipe appealed to me. It was the orange and cinnamon combination that wooed me so I made it for the holidays and was absolutely impressed. My only complaint? This makes enough for an army! I can not believe that so little rice can make so much pudding. For a big family, make it as is but for just two people,...

Dec 31, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a pretty soup but overall I found it very thin when it comes to flavour and texture. I personally would not make it again but if you are looking for a lighter mushroom room, maybe you will like it.

For me, the sugar content being so high made this an undrinkable drink. Way too sweet! I tried diluting it with water and then you could not taste the cucumber. What a shame, it was a very cool idea for a drink. ~ Suzie the Foodie

This really is a perfect drink. I made Sunny's cucumber drink before and it was way too sweet but this one is just right. There is just enough ginger to give it zing without overpowering the pear.
