Reviewed Apple Coleslaw

Sep 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was delicious! Loved the sweet apple to balance the tart of the dressing and make this slaw pop. I happened to have apple flavored balsamic vinegar on hand, so I used that instead of apple cider vinegar, and it was so flavorful! This makes A TON, at least for just my husband and I, so I may cut it all back a bit next time. Definitely somethi...

I saw the episode this was on and Sandra's custard looked more like the consistency of vanilla pudding, but mine turned out a bit off. It also started to "cook" on the side of the bowl.

I liked other reviewers who said they added bell pepper...

This was good; a little dense, but perfect for our purpose because we cut the loaf into two and formed the two mini loaves into round "balls" so that we could have bread bowls for our cheddar beer soup. This was a great bread to make into bread bowls for soup on a fall day.""

Reviewed Cheddar Beer Soup

Sep 14, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The soup was really tasty. Based on reviews I read here first, I used three HEAPING tablespoons of flour for thickening (and used whole wheat flour based on personal preference) - this gave us a great consistency and our soup wasn't too thin. We used Newcastle Brown Ale in our soup, and it was delicious. We also used exactly 2 cups of extra sharp...
