Great soup all around. Will make this again.

This was fantastic. After the first bite, my husband proclaimed this a "company dish". I even left out both the pasta and the cheese because of the diet we are on, and it was still ridiculously good. Great recipe!"

Great recipe. Quick, easy, and very flavorful. Had all ingredients on hand, which is always a plus."

Loved this! Even my husband, who is not a huge fan of fish, cleaned his plate! I will absolutely be making this again. Can't wait to try it with other flavor profiles as well. Thanks, Melissa, for another great recipe!"

Oct 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Absolutely delicious and easy. I love that I have almost all of these ingredients on hand at any given time. In fact, the only ingredient I didn't have was enough tomatoes. I only had one tomato, and it was not in great shape so I roasted it and supplemented with sundried tomatoes. This recipe is a keeper and I will most definitely make this a"

Reviewed Apple Crumble with Cardamom-Vanilla Caramel Sauce

Oct 10, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is the first low rating I have ever given Melissa. I give a 2 because the crumble topping was delicious, but the filling was watery, the apples undercooked, and the caramel sauce was grainy. My biggest issue was the watery filling. I think it needed flour or some other thickener. Sorry, Melissa! You are still my favorite!"

Delicious! I love that each ingredient was made a little extra special with additional flavors. Melissa never disappoints!"

Reviewed Roasted Vegetable Meatloaf with Balsamic Glaze

Sep 26, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was fantastic, especially the ketchup/balsamic glaze. I had to substitute a yellow squash for one of the peppers and I only had a green pepper (although I much prefer red and yellow), and it was still delicious. I will definitely make this again. "

Sep 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really liked this. Buttered egg noodles have always been a go-to for my family when the cupboard is bare, but this adds a little extra interest. Great simple change for something different."

If I could give this a rating higher than 5 stars, I would. This was so good, my husband made himself miserable eating so much. I served this over mashed potatoes that I spruced up with white truffle oil. The combination was divine! I will make this again and again!"

This unexpected combination of flavors really hits the mark. I am on my third time baking this recipe, which is unusual because I rarely remake any recipe--I'm always trying new things. This one is a keeper and I will make for the office or for company any time."

This was great. I will make this again, and I would definitely serve it to company. "

This was fantastic! I used half beef/half lamb. I also added a dash of cinnamon to the meat because it goes great with lamb, and it was delicious. I also used Lawry's in the mashed potatoes to give a little more flavor. I will definitely make this again, and definitely drain the fat! ""

Feb 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This is delicious! I used two packages of 2/3 oz each of mint, and it was just right. I left a few leaves out for garnish. Hope this helps. Can't wait for summer so I can use my own mint and not have to pay for it! This recipe is outstanding and I'm making another batch today."
