Reviewed Moo-Less Chocolate Pie

Sunday, Nov 4, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"Just because this has tofu in it, doesn't make it low calorie or healthy! (People reviewing this are saying it is a great low calorie or healthy dessert.) With that said, it is a great tasting way to fill a chocolate fix. More like a fudge pie. Rich and thick. I used dark chocolate which made it even more intense. Would probably like it better if "

Friday, Jun 8, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"I saw Giada do this a few weeks back and planned on loosely following the idea, by using my leftover Thanksgiving food. Then I saw Mario do it too. So I figured I better try. I used left-over roasted turkey and pulsed it in the food processor with some left over gravy. Our turkey was way too dry so this was a perfect use for it. Then I stirred in "

Reviewed Shoyu Chicken

Friday, Jun 8, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"Good flavor but my sauce never thickened, and I even added extra cornstarch. I think it would have been better if it reduced longer than 10 minutes. I used boneless, skinless thighs and it was still swimming in grease, that I had to strain off. The sauce should be cut in half. Way too much. I had to use sherry since I did not have any mirin."

Reviewed Italian Chicken with New Orleans Spaghetti Bordelaise

Friday, Jun 8, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"Easy enough to do for a large crowd and everyone liked it. The most time consuming part of this dish is peeling the garlic.
I only cooked the chicken for 30 minutes covered and then 30 minutes uncovered.
I took the time to take the skin off.
I doubled the basil in both dishes and decreased the garlic in the pasta by half.

Saturday, May 19, 2012 on FoodNetwork.com

"I used reduced fat cream cheese and cut the butter in half. I formed it into a hockey puck/disc shape and it firmed up better than I expected. I was fully prepared to turn into a dip/spread, since I used the reduced fat and less butter. But since it firmed up ok. I covered it with mini chips. I used mini chips in the mixture also, so I cut the mar"

Reviewed Antipasto Summer Lettuce Wraps

Tuesday, Oct 11, 2011 on Cooking Channel

"Lots of prep for this one and in the end only o.k. flavor. I used pita chips instead of bibb lettuce. I made this two days ahead so that the flavors could develop. I used my on dressing. Definitely drain off as much of the extra dressing as possible before serving or it will be too soupy.""

Reviewed Cauliflower and Bacon Gratin

Tuesday, Oct 11, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"I used half the amount of bread crumbs and so glad I did. And I also used panko bread crumbs because they are lighter and fluffier. I didn't bother to add the capers and bacon to cream. It doesn't need to be added like that. I just sprinkled it over the caulliflower. Everything is more evenly distributed that way. I think this needs garlic and oni""

Friday, Jun 17, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"I made six burgers with this. They fit the bun perfect. Glad I didn't stick these on the grill. They would've fallen through. When I put these in the pan they fell apart and I had to quickly scramble to smash them back together. They did hold up once they were cooked, but maybe another egg would help bind them together. The sesame mayo was a good "

Reviewed Lavender Shortbread

Thursday, Jun 16, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"I used dried lavender and 2 tablespoons is way too much for the recipe. Dried and fresh lavender aren't really interchangeable measurement for measurement. These had a flour after taste to them. Not as buttery and melt-in-your mouth I was hoping for."

Thursday, Jun 16, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"First attempt at using cornstarch in a shortbread recipe. Not sure if it was the cornstarch or not, but this recipe had a flour/powdery mouth feel to it. I think it is supposed to help with the crispness. Anyway, 2 tablespoons is way too much for the recipe. But then I did use dried. Dried and mixed aren't really interchangeable measurement for me"

Reviewed Grilled Tuna Rolls

Monday, Apr 18, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"I used this to serve on top of a bed of arugula. Can't imagine using good tuna and then serving this in a tacky little hot dog bun. Definitely use a better bread than that, especially with all the wonderful artisan breads available these days. I omitted the olive oil to try and save on the fat, but it was too limey so I added a small teaspoon of sesame oil. I thought that really gave it some great flavor. Wish I had the red onion. :("

Monday, Feb 7, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"This is probalby one of the worst things I have ever made. What a disgusting greasy mess and fairly tasteless. I added some ground mustard to give it a little zip. Can't believe people actually pay to eat this at a restaurant.

Reviewed Butternut Squash with Pecans and Blue Cheese

Monday, Jan 24, 2011 on FoodNetwork.com

"Definitely take the time to peel the squash. I thought I would try it that way. Did not like it as much. Add the nuts the last 5 minutes or so, to increase the flavor of them. If you add the cheese right away, don't stir it. It will become a gooey mess. Taste ok this way, but looks better with chunks of cheese instead of creamy melted cheese. I chose to use goat cheese, not a Bleu fan. This was good and easy but nothing over the top.
