Oh my god, my boyfriend and I thought these were terrific. I didn't have shredded Swiss so I used slices. Totally fine. My kids gave them the thumbs down, but I dropped them all on their heads alot when they were babies, so there you go. Make this. It's yummy.

This is my new go-to recipe for using up the turkey carcass and leftovers after Thanksgiving. So much better than regular old turkey soup! It's labor intensive, but all that work pays off. It is delicious! I subbed mild smoked sausage for andouille since I have little ones who are sensitive to spice. Everyone loved it! I don't think I can wait until...

Nov 23, 2014 on

I've always liked black bean soup, but never really loved it. But I needed to use up some leftover ham, and I had beans on hand, So I gave this recipe a shot. Delicious!! I had to make a few changes.
1 - I soaked the beans overnight first. Oops. Not sure if it made any difference.
2 - I decided to add a bay-leaf because I wasn't...

Wow. This one is truly greater than the sum of its parts. Don't shy away from the raisins, they take it over the top in my opinion. If one of your diners really hates raisins, they're easy to eat around. I added a little chicken stock to the roasting pan while the chicken was cooking to yield more "juce" for the gravy. Perfect.

So good and so easy! These come out like a cross between candy and potato chips. Even my veggie hating boyfriend loves them. And who knew the rind was edible? I've wasted years peeling squash....better late than never I guess."

I think the few folks who didn't like these either didn't know what "indochine" flavors would be like, or did something wrong, because my family begs me to make these on the regular. The dressing is key, and don't skip the fish sauce. I also add pickled ginger carrots on top. YUM!"

Yum! These are so good. It's my go to butternut squash recipe. I personally don't flip them, it's kind of a pain and I like that they get really brown on one side that way. Also, I think leaving the rind on is helps hold the slices together. I think if you peeled it these would fall apart. The rind is totally edible. I'm not sure wh"

So far this gets the thumbs up. I only gave it four stars because I do think the recipe as written might not be ideal. For one thing, I agree that the corn was kind of lost in there. It wasn't bad, but I couldn't really taste it, think I'd skip that step next time. Also, I only had one lemon, so I had to skimp on the lemon juice. I'd guess I use"
