Reviewed Mashed Potatoes

Dec 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe deserves more than 5 stars! These were THE BEST mashed potatoes that I've ever had! I know that sounds strange to say about something as ordinary as mashed potatoes, but it is true! They were rich, creamy, and just melt-in-your-mouth fantastic! I can't wait to make these again!!!""

Reviewed Perfect Roast Turkey

Dec 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I wonder if I did something wrong because this turkey was just like any other turkey that I've ever made. It wasn't any moister than it ever is, and it didn't taste like any of the ingredients that were on it or in it!?! I even made sure that I could cooked the turkey to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Oh well. I think I'm done with turke...

I loved ONLYME356's review! Make sure you read it and/or watch Alton's video BEFORE you make this recipe. There are some typos in the recipe that you don't want to miss. I went ahead and used the 1/2 tsp of cayenne because I like my guacamole spicy! :) I didn't have a jalapeno but wish that I would have. It made it lack the pizzazz it needed. It ...

Loved this dressing! When I moved to Africa, I realized that you couldn't find bottled salad dressings--or on the extremely rare occasion that you did, they cost A LOT more than in the US. Even had a friend that didn't like French dressing try it, and she liked it! Will definitely make again.""

Dec 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this recipe spur of the moment so I was short some of the ingredients: raisins and a topping. I did have two slices of raisin bread so I substituted that for the white bread. It worked but, obviously, would have been better as the recipe is written. Still, it was so, so, so yummy!""

Reviewed Eggplant Parmesan

Dec 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Before trying this recipe, I had never had eggplant. I have to say that it is fantastic! I recently moved to Africa where produce is very, very cheap but meats are very, very expensive. I suddenly needed a new arsenal of recipes that were vegetarian. This recipe (including the marinara sauce) are just great. In fact, I now use this marinara recip...

Reviewed Cream of Leek and Potato Soup

Dec 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This soup is AMAZING! I left off the creme fraiche and chives to top it off just because I couldn't find creme fraiche. When I moved to Africa, I had to find a new arsenal of recipes with ingredients that I could find. This was wonderful! Thanks so much Julia Child. She never fails to impress!""

Reviewed Banana Walnut Bread

Dec 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this recipe several times while living in Africa. You suddenly had this craving for those basic American food recipes. This is one of them! Now, you can't easily find walnuts in Kenya, so I had to omit them. I have to say that the bread was just as tasty without them. Everyone always loved it when I took it to brunch! Since we were at over...

Reviewed House Sausage

May 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Thought this sausage was GREAT! I had to improvise a little due to the fact that my mom is allergic to onions (so I assumed shallots too). I used 1/4 tsp onion powder and 1/8 tsp garlic powder. They tasted just as good to me. I'll definitely make them again!!!"
