Reviewed Apricot and Salami Scones

May 8, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

these were a huge hit, and Im so glad I made them! I couldn't find scone mix at my supermarket, so I just used the dry ingredient's from Alton Brown's basic recipe instead. I used half AP flour and half cake flour. I also added some freshly ground black pepper to the dough, and it was great. These were easy, tasty, and different enough that I "

Jan 1, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was a delicious addition to my family's Christmas Eve dinner! Everyone really enjoyed it! It was a little difficult to stuff the bodies, but everything else was easy. I made them at home, and then transferred them to a disposable foil roasting pan and just warmed them up in the oven when I got to the party. I think I would have liked a li"

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

This was very tasty, and very easy to prepare. I was so excited when I finally found a local butcher by me that carried goat, and I have been dying to try this recipe. I am glad I did, and I will definitely make it again. I added some vinegar to the marinade to make it a little wetter and to help with the gamey flavor of the meat. I think next"

This is a great quick and easy weeknight meal. I am in the process of moving and didn't have a lot of time to cook this week, or ingredients to cook with, as everything was packed. I made these two nights in a row using corn tortillas that I charred on the stove for a bit. So delicious!!"

Reviewed Coriander Chicken with Hammered Cauliflower

Mar 29, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I thought this was tasty enough to make again, however, I would make some changes. Like the other reviewers, I decreased the amount of liquid in the recipe by half, and my cauliflower was incredibly soggy and soupy. It was not the most appetizing. I think next time I would skip the chicken stock entirely, and cook the veggies in the pan until ...

Reviewed Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie with Almond Crumb Topping

Mar 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This came out beautifully! I listened to the other reviewers and added some cornstarch to the filling so it wouldn't be as runny, and I'm glad I did. Instead of making the crumb topping, I doubled the pie crust recipe and did a lattice top. It was so pretty! I agree that this recipe is more work than some others I've found, but I like the fla...

Reviewed Spice-Roasted Cauliflower and Jerusalem Artichokes

Mar 20, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

YUMMMM!!! I made this for a side dish to go with steak. I have never had jerusalem artichokes before,and finally found them at my local farmer's market. I love roasted cauliflower, so I figured this would be a good way to try something new for the first time. They were so delicious! I added a little ground allspice and curry powder to the se...

Jan 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was very easy to implement and came out delicious! The reason I only gave it 3 stars is that it is waaaaaaaay too spicy! I like spicy food (especially chili), but this was just way too much for me. It was so spicy that it actually hid the rest of the flavors. I want to be able to taste the other spices and the meaty-ness of the ve...

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

This was delicious! I am trying to include more vegetarian meals in my diet, and this one was very satisfying and easy to prepare! I do not care for zucchini or yellow squash, so I left them out and added mixed wild mushrooms, instead. I had already roasted the peppers by the time I got around to reading the reviews about how long it took to m...

Reviewed Cinnamon-Chocolate Fudge

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

So good and super easy! I added a little more cinnamon than the recipe called for, because I love it so much! I also sprinkled the top with coarse sea salt, as suggested, and I think that totally made it! I think next time I will use bittersweet chocolate like the recipe calls for instead of semisweet.""

Reviewed Chickpea and Artichoke Masala

Oct 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was really REALLY delicious, and super easy to prepare. I will definitely make it again. I think next time I would half the amount of chick peas and double the amount of artichokes, just a personal preference. I listened to the other reviewers and did not put in as much lime juice, but I would totally use it all next time. It was not qui...

Reviewed Ancho Chicken Tortilla Soup

Jun 28, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was very good! I wish I had read the comments first, because I would have added black beans. I think they would have gone perfectly! I did not have ancho chiles, so I used guajillos instead. It came out great! I will definitely be making this again."

Reviewed Pat's Spicy Peach Hot Wings

Jun 12, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

A. MAZ. ING! I will definitely be using this recipe again! I used sriracha sauce instead of Tobasco, so they were REALLY spicy and garlicky, which I loved. I don't have a deep-fryer or a deep-fry thermometer, so I grilled the wings on med-high flame for 6 minutes per side so they were crispy and done all the way through. The peach preserves I "

SO Good! These were so delicious, and I loved how easy they were to make. I added about 1/2 tsp of cumin to the recipe, and I really like the flavor it brings. I also decided to bake them instead of frying to cut down on calories, and they came out so crispy and delicious! I lay them on a rack in a roasting pan and baked at 450F. They were also...

Feb 24, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this recipe for my parents for dinner right after I read it in the magazine, and it was a big hit! I used dried apricots and raisins, and boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I also served it with couscous, and everyone loved it! I have made it many more times since then. This dish sparked a love affair with parsnips for me!"

This came out soooooo good! I threw a luau in winter party and cooked these on the indoor grill for some friends, and I have to say, it is a GREAT meal for entertaining, because they take practically no time at all to make, and they were total crowd pleasers! I had the chops marinating ahead of time, and threw them on the grill about 10 minutes...

Jan 5, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I absolutely love this recipe, especially for the winter! It's fast and easy, and very warming. I used a small can of tomatoes instead of fresh because that is all I had on hand. I also added another few serranos, because I like it spicy, and I used smoked paprika and baked my chiken in the oven, because I don't have a broiler. The smoked paprika...
