Just last month Food Network asked fans on Facebook to try their hands at one of FoodNetwork.com’s best-ever recipes, Ina Garten’s mustard-roasted chicken, and to show us your results with photos of the finished dish. This time, however, we asked you to ditch the stovetop in favor of the oven for a sweet treat: a top-rated banana bread that’s one of the most-popular recipes on the site. In true superfan spirit, many of you took to the kitchen to make this moist, cinnamon-scented loaf; check out some of FN Dish’s favorite fan photos of the finished banana bread, then get the recipe for this easy dessert.

It doesn’t necessarily take a list of complicated ingredients or countless hours on the clock to turn out a flavor-packed meal. In fact, this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week celebrates bold staples you likely already have on hand: garlic, onions, hearty greens and noodles. Perhaps best of all, this satisfying dinner, best finished with nutty Pecorino Romano for extra richness, is ready to eat in less than 40 minutes.

When time is tight on weeknights, every minute in the kitchen counts, and the only item on the dinner menu is, of course, a quick-cooking dinner. That’s where pasta comes in — especially this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. Ready to eat in only 15 minutes, Giada De Laurentiis’ sausage-studded pasta may look fancy, but there’s really nothing to it: Just brown the meat, warm the (frozen!) peas, then toss in cooked noodles and cheese. The warmth from the hot pasta will be enough to melt the ricotta and Pecorino Romano and create a silky sauce in a hurry.

When it comes to finishing touches on a plate, there’s not much that doesn’t benefit from an egg on top, including this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. Without an egg, France’s version of a specialty ham-and-cheese sandwich is a simple croquet monsieur, but when dressed up with golden, runny egg, this richly indulgent sandwich layered with indulgent, creamy bechamel sauce becomes an over-the-top beauty called a croque madame. Follow Alex Guarnaschelli’s lead and opt for Gruyère cheese to add a rich, nutty taste to the sandwich.

When it comes to appetizers, a traditional pick like a cheese plate or chips and dip may fill the bill on any ordinary day, but when you’re looking to step up your starter game, look no further than Guy Fieri’s recipe arsenal and this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. Golden brown and crunchy on the outside with a flavor-packed filling of garlic-ginger chicken and fresh vegetables, plus creamy avocado, Guy’s next-level egg rolls are best served with a sweet chili sauce.

So, you’ve baked the cake and now it’s time to frost it. While you could opt for the traditional white or chocolate variety, a special occasion — or, perhaps, just a chilly snow day — calls for a pop of color. That’s where this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week comes in.
Thanks to Food Network Magazine’s handy guide to DIY frosting colors, it’s now possible to tint your topping with more than just the usual red, yellow, green and blue dyes. Follow the easy system to know just how many drops of coloring it takes to turn out an entire rainbow of frosting colors, including Orange Soda (bright orange), Bubble Gum (hot pink) and Grasshopper Pie (a cool mint green).

Just when you thought there was no way to improve upon the rich, creamy texture of classic cheesecake or the buttery flavor of a moist cookie, Sandra Lee creates a craveworthy dessert mash-up that brings both treats to new levels of indulgence. These easy-to-make bites feature all of the fixings of traditional cheesecake, like graham cracker crumbs and a soft, decadent filling, but the simplicity of an eat-with-your-hands cookie.
