Very good dish. Easy to play with too. Next time I might add some black beans and maybe some frozen corn kernels. Nice late summer side dish. Thanks!"

I made this for a potluck at work and I got rave reviews. Everyone wanted seconds. Do yourself a favor and use the Herbs' de Provence for the best flavor and don't rush the roasting of the veggies. Soooo good!

Delicious and easy. I made this last weekend. My boyfriend, who is not a big shrimp eater loved it. The lemon flavor really comes through. Makes quite a bit of food. I added extra spinach and arugula to the leftovers when I warmed them up and it was excellent. Will definitely make again!"

I made this to bring to another couple's house to watch football. It sounded like the perfect "guy food". Boy was I right! Everyone enjoyed it, but the guys absolutely devoured it. What a great idea to make a hoagie into dip. I did add a few more peperoncini peppers than the recipe called for since we really like them. Yummy dip.

I made this last night for a nice middle of the week treat for my boyfriend. He loved it. I served it warm with vanilla bean ice cream. The butterscotch chips were a great addition to an apple crisp. The only thing I would do differently next time is to cut back on the sugar a bit. It was a tad too sweet for me. All in all though a very tas...
