So delicious! We like them with the dressing in Michael's recipe or with garlic-lemon aioli. I didn't have any anchovies for the dressing and they were still great. I will get some anchovies for the next batch which will be tomorrow.

This was a great Sunday night dinner. Made the house smell delious all day, just the way we like it. I also loved the orange peel in this recipe. I wil probably add more than the peel of one orange the next time we make this. I also used a nice Russian River Zinfandel instead of Burgandy. The freezer is stocked for future cold winter nights. Thanks...

This recipe tastes like you are eating at a fine dining restaurant. We doubled the recipe and it took us 3 + hours. It was worth every moment and its great to know our freezer is full of soup. A key ingredient for us was using "gramma's frozen wide egg noodles" they are in the freezer section at the store. I couldn't even imagine using anything else...

So Delious! Great Birthday cake. Makes enough for 24 servings, because it is so tall and so rich. Will satisfy any chocolate cake lover. This will be number one on the birthday cake list when its gotta be chocolate.
Beware that you need a super big bowl for mixing before starting. So happy I saw this episode by chance. ""

These were fabulous! I used the smaller sized portobello mushrooms because I wanted them to be appetizers. They are now on my favorites list. I did substitute fromage blanc cheese for the mascarpone. These will be my super bowl potluck dish. I know they will be gone quickly.
