Very delicious! I did make a few changes due to the ingredients I had on hand. Used ground turkey instead of beef. Didn't have the bell pepper or molasses. Grated up a carrot and some celery to sneak in veggies. I didn't have any tomato sauce. I was generous with the tomato paste amount. I didn't add beans. I used fire roasted tomatoes with jalapenos...

I made this cake for my graduation luncheon. I love strawberry shortcake so after I read the recipe and some reviews I was hooked. Used the diabetic reviewer's version and no one could tell the difference. However, I had a difficult time with the jello because it got too firm and didn't pour like the Neelys did. Presentation wise, I ended up with...

Made this for my husband and he loved it! I made a few changes: used ground turkey instead of beef and double the amount. Used turkey bacon instead of regular bacon. Omitted mayo. Used my food processor to make my own bread crumbs out of wheat bread and to finely chop some mushrooms. Omitted the fried onion because I didn't have it on hand. Added...

I added liquid smoke and omitted the green chiles. Added brown sugar instead...

This is a great recipe! The chicken comes out moist and flavorful. I took the advice of other readers and didn't add any salt and reduced the parmesan cheese to 3/4 cup. My husband enjoyed it so much he wanted to know when I would be making it again. This is so much easier and healthier than frying. Thank you Paula for sharing such a great recipe....

I tried this recipe tonight for the first time. I have never tried any of Giada's recipes, but they always sound so wonderful. To my disappointment, my cream sauce curdled as well. I tried what another reviewer suggested by taking my pan off the heat and I also attempted tempering it by adding some of the hot liquid. It didn't work. The sauce smelled...
