Love, love, love the carne asada. The marinade was spot on! Didn't have time to make the pesto, so I used guacamole. Didn't have time to make the salso, so I used store bought, but still got rave reviews from my family. Will definitely make again! Love Jeff and Sandwich King Show. WE need more episodes. Kepp them coming, Jeff!!e

Excellent. Cut back on the chili peppers and hot sauce as some people in my family can't take the heat, and it was wonderful. It's my go-to sloppy joe recipe now. Good ridence to the canned stuff. You did it again, Ree! Love your recipes and show! <3

Excellent sauce! Ten thousand times more superior than the packaged type that you mix with milk on the stove. Those days for me are over. Because I cut the recipe in half, I just used my mini kitchen food processor. This recipe is foolproof, fabulous and perfect over eggs benedict, asparagus or fish!

Ina's recipes are always very tasty and foolproof, and this gratin is no exception! Excellent! Next time, I'll cook my cauliflower a little less. It should be somewhat al dente before baking. Keep them coming, Ina. You make me look like a rock star!

When you're at the stage with the flour and butter in the pan, you need to cook that at LEAST one full minute to get rid of the flour taste. I think that will solve your problem.

This applesauce sauce is out of this world delicious! I did not make the grits, and my family likes our pork chops breaded, fried and then finished off in the oven, so that's what I did. Then I cleaned out the pan and make the applesauce sauce. I used applesauce from a jar as a time saver. At first I thought it would be too vinegar-y, but as it...

Ina, you rock! This polenta did turn out picture perfect! You make me look like a rockstar! Thanks. I did modify the printed recipe.

This is a great basic recipe. I added chopped fresh rosemary, fresh sage and fresh thyme in equal amounts to the parsley. I also "kicked up" the bread. I used half of good country style bread that I had made in my bread machine and half Rosemary Artisian Bread from my grocer. I removed all the crust before drying, and it really, really added t"

I was a big fan of Ina Garten's ranch dressing, but move over, Ina! Ree's version is much better and is now my go-to ranch! Instead of doing that mincing of the garlic and salt, I just grated a clove or garlic on my microplane and added salt. It was a big hit with all!
