Mar 15, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Pretty good and very easy to make! A little simple, needed a nice salty butter for balance, but they were big and soft and pretty. I had to cut my husband off after 4 rolls, he was eating more bread than chili!

Wow, very tasty, I've made this twice now and both times it was a restaurant quality meal. Didn't take long to put together, perfect amount of food for 4 people, kitchen wasn't destroyed, and everybody cleaned their plates.

I switched the chicken for andouille chicken sausage, I was heavy handed with the veggies, and I used wild brown rice. Everyone really loved this dish, the broth has lots of flavor, and it's pretty healthy!"

We make this a lot in the summer. The yeast gives it a really great flavor. We don't even use the thyme. It makes a nice dessert, too, with cinnamon and sugar and butter."

The gnocchi were soft and cheezy- but the best part is the sauce. What a sauce! I give 5 stars because I didn't get frustrated even once! I don't have a cheese cloth or a food mill or a pastry bag- paper towels and a 1 gal. zip lock bag worked out fine for me. Listen up when she says let the ricotta cheese get nice and dry, though."

I don't understand why people give 4 or 5 stars when they needed to make so many changes for it to be successful? First, the lemon curd never thickened. I restarted the process 3 times, and no matter how briefly or how long I cooked the filling, it was never thick enough to carry "whiskfuls" into the yolks. I also had trouble with the meringue, I "

My husband and I really enjoyed this meatloaf. It was easy to make, the glaze was amazing, the meat was salty and flavorful. Our only problem was the veggies inside were undercooked, so the onions in partiular were a little over powering. Maybe I didn't chop them small enough. We'll make this again, but I'll cook the onions first."

The marinade on the chicken is fantastic (I used steak). I ended up salting everything over again when I did my final tasting, and I added mushrooms and onions for extra veggies. I also didn't need to use any cornstarch- since I didn't have any extra liquid. Overall I'm happy to have a new asian dish in the rotation."

Made these for my husband's coworker as a "Thank you" for lending us power tools. I added 1.5 lemons to both the glaze and the batter for more zing, and it was perfect. Only cooked them for 12 minutes, otherwise the bottoms would have burnt. Soft, sweet, lemoney. Glad I decided on this recipe, I'll be making these again."
