Reviewed Chipotle Cashew Chicken with Brown Rice

Jan 19, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very tasty. At first bite, I didn't know what to think. Cumin mixed with soy sauce and maple syrup was definitely different, but after a few bites I was comfortable with it and thought it was quite tasty. The only change I made was to use quinoa instead of brown rice. I would make it again, although I may cut back a bit on the Cumin. ...

Reviewed Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

Jan 17, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought the chicken was really tasty. The peanut sauce was very thick and I made a few tweeks as other reviewers suggested - added a splash of tamari, some rice wine vinegar, and coconut oil. It went well with the chicken. Overall I would make the chicken again but would look for a different satay sauce.""

Reviewed Next Day Turkey Soup

Nov 29, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Excellent recipe! I used green beans, corn and sweet potatos (all uncooked) and threw in a sprig of thyme. Everything else was done per the recipe. Can't wait to make again next thanksgiving!""

Reviewed Roasted-Pepper Pasta Salad

Nov 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

It was ok. A little bland. I would make it again, but I would double the sauce (or half the pasta, as others have suggested).""

Reviewed Sweet Potato Ice Cream

Mar 23, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I did not like this recipe. It was not creamy like many ice creams, but more crystallized (maybe the alcohol in the beer caused this by raising the freezing point?) I also couldn't find canned sweet potatoes, so i baked my own, and pureed them in a blender. Maybe this is where I went wrong, but I will not be making this again."

Reviewed Slow Cooker Chipotle-Lime Chicken Thighs Jamaican Rice and Peas

Mar 6, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this recipe almost exactly as written. Used brown rice instead of white rice, and cooked the whole rice dish in a rice cooker. Also, i only had a 1.3 lb package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, so I used those, but kept the amounts of sauce and veggies the same. This amount of chicken was perfect for the recipe, as it fed my husband...

I made it as written, since I happened to have those ingredients on hand, and it was great. So simple and tasty. Great way to clean out the fridge with soon-to-go-bad veggies!

Reviewed Chocolate Peppermint Pinwheel Cookies

Dec 24, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

The flavor of these cookies was excellent. I used my magic bullet to finely chop the candy canes. I dont think they would be as good with large chunks. I thought the peppermint and the chocolate were both evident in each bite of the cookie and they went together well. However, my chocolate dough cracked both when rolled and when cut. I was able...

Reviewed Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Dec 24, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These cookies were excellent! I thought the lemon flavor was perfect. Unlike other reviews, I did not feel the glaze needed more lemon. Zest of 1 lemon + 3 T as your only liquid, the glaze has plenty of lemon flavor. They were very cake like, which was fine by me. I also did not use 2T of dough per cookie. That seemed excessive and i wanted a...
