Reviewed Chocolate Toffee Candy Cookies (Saltine Candy)

Dec 23, 2013 in null on Food.com

This stuff is amazing. Instead of boiling on the stovetop for 1 minute and then pouring on the crackers and bake for 7 minutes, I';ve always boiled on the stovetop for 3 minutes and then baked for 5. I doubt it really matter which way you do it, but what DOES matter is that the butter/sugar mixture actually BOILS for 6-8 minutes so don';t...

Reviewed Cheesecake Factory Key Lime Cheesecake--My Version

Jul 18, 2013 in null on Food.com

Cheesecake is my favorite dessert and I';ve baked so many throughout the years I can';t even keep track of them all. The trouble is, since I';ve prepared so many and since I have my tried & true favorites it';s hard for a new recipe to stand up to that. This cheesecake recipe far exceeded my expectations. I fought the urge to adju...

Reviewed Avocado Dressing

Jan 16, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I wasn't very impressed with this as written. It tasted strongly of mayo and the avocado was lost. I added 2 additional avocados some extra lemon and a good amount of fresh cilantro and then it was quite delicious! I ate some of it as a dip (it's very thick and then thinned it out with a little milk and put it on a salad. It was awesome as a salad"

Reviewed Broiled Salmon with Herb Mustard Glaze

Jan 16, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

As other reviewers have stated, this is a little too "sharp" as is. I added a small dollop of honey, though, and it was perfect. The herbs go really nicely with the fish and are perfect in this glaze, definitely make sure they are fresh for a nice bright flavor. I will make this again!"

Reviewed Chewy Sugar Cookies

Apr 14, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These were just what I was looking for, a dough that I didn't have to roll out and cut that yielded soft, slightly chewy sugar cookies with a subtle vanilla sugar flavor. The dough was easy to work with, I rolled it into balls and pressed them out almost to the thickness I wanted them to be, they really didn't spread much at all. My cookies were m"

Reviewed Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake

Mar 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This came out really excellent but I admit I didn't follow the recipe 100%. I skipped the Strawberry jello because while researching online I found lots and lots of reviews that said jello adds a significant artificial taste. Instead, I added a couple of tablespoons of flour and some extract (I used raspberry because I didn't have strawberry and...

Reviewed Espresso Brownies

Jan 21, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

These taste awesome! I used instant espresso powder and the espresso flavor in the brownies is very subtle however the espresso flavor in the glaze is much more pronounced which makes for a real nice overall mocha flavor. I used a 12x8 inch brownie pan and 1 batch of the glaze was not enough to cover it all so I made another batch and had some le...

Reviewed Lentil Soup

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

With just a couple of tweaks this is an awesome soup! I add a little more cumin and coriander than called for and also add in a little smoked paprika. I like cooking some fresh garlic with the veggies and when the grocer's tomatoes are disappointing and flavorless I use a can of petit diced tomatoes, tastes just as good. The flavor of this soup i...

Reviewed Seared Scallops Served with a Truffled Potato Sauce and Warm Potato Relish

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

I made this for my mom on Mother's Day and it was good but neither one of us was blown away. I was slightly disappointed in the sauce, the truffle oil gave it a lot of wonderful depth however the chicken broth flavor was way too pronounced. I used Swanson's low sodium chicken broth, perhaps a different brand would be better. Next time I will use h"

Reviewed White Bean Dip with Pita Chips

Nov 25, 2010 in Food Network Community Toolbox on Food Network

The flavors are here but the measurements seem off to me. I made as directed and when I tasted it the only thing I could taste at all was olive oil! I thought 1/3 cup 4 tablespoons sounded like a lot and it definitely was!! I ended up adding another full can of beans, some more parsley and lemon juice and about 2 teaspoons of fresh rosemary; I did...
