Jun 26, 2013 in on Food.com

Used broccoli slaw - was very good, but too much black pepper ruined the recipe. If the amt of pepper is not a typo, might be good without the pepper but add a dash of hot sauce. So much pepper looked like poppyseeds. Believe the dressing is probably really delish otherwise."

Wow! Made Fat Tuesday a real celebration. No-fuss preparation for gourmet flavor. Used smoked turkey sausage, added couple handsful fresh spinach during last 10 minutes, left shrimp whole, and prepared/served wild rice separately (yellow rice would be yummy too). Consider making your own Essence - easy to mix a smaller batch by substituting teaspo"

Smooth, creamy, not unlike black & tan. Found a 6-pack of Irish cider in the cold beer section and oversized Guinness stout also. We Love It! Give it a try."

Onion Rings? Unlike the other reviewers, made only the onion rings after seeing them on TFN today. There is obviously a step missing between drain the rings and coat with flour & corn meal mixture. Now I know that drained onion rings do not hold coating of any type, but like a brainiac I kept frying. The result: grainy (from cornmeal dust deep-fr"

Deeee-Lish! and so healthy-tasting. Not too spicy, not too bland, just right. Easy but time-consuming prep - more than worth your time. Used green onions and dried cilantro with brown rice. Yikes! Will make again and again and again and . . . . please try this. Your tastebuds will thank you : ""

Dee-Lish, refreshing and a perfect change from red wine sangria. Guy served this on The View today - didn't have all the ingredients, but couldn't resist trying anyway. Substituting two or three ingredients still made an excellent drink. Thanks, Guy - will be a regular at our house. "

A really dee-lish treat! This is our new House Standard. If you're short on supplies & have a small box of cornmeal mix handy, eliminate first five ingredients and go forth with the recipe - almost just as yummy. Will test cutting 1/2 of the melted butter and upping jalapeno next time. Enjoy!"

Try it - Everyone will like it!

Yummy, Hearty, and Truly Easy!

Omitted artichoke hearts (none on hand) and added minced garlic, ultra-thin red onion slices and topped with parm-reggiano. This is such an excellent and authentic base recipe for building up with your own faves, ie fresh sliced mushrooms, bleu cheese, sprouts, and green onion tops. Excellent choice...
