Reviewed black bean and beef chili with green sour cream

1 day ago on

This was so good! I like trying out a new chili recipe once every 3 weeks or so, and this one is one of my favorites ever! I made sure to dump the rest of the yummy liquid I didn't use to puree the peppers in back into the chili. It's not spicy at all, but the flavor was so on point, I didn't miss the heat. I wouldn't bother with the green sour...

Jan 9, 2015 on

Before cooking this, I read some of the reviews. I decided to add some fresh grated garlic and onion powder to my dumpling mix as other reviewers had done. This came out delicious! I had no problem with my dumplings falling apart either. I made sure my water was only ever at a simmer, not a boil, once the dumplings were dropped. I then just let...

Wow! This was super flavorful and tasted very authentic to something I'd eat at my local Indian resteraunt! I used chicken and served it over basmati rice, yum!

Extremely delicious and easy to put together, but this will only be an every once in a while meal for my family because it's super rich, but the flavor is well worth the splurge.

Sep 15, 2014 on

These sandwiches were off the hook! I'm so happy to have found this recipe since I moved up north and there aren't many cajun or creole style foods around here. I only ended up using one cup of flour, 2 eggs, and 1 cup of the panko and that was plenty. I think I next time I will cut the flour to half a cup and use only one egg. Regardless, I will...

This was divine! It's not a low-cal diet food, but that's okay! It was well worth the calories and a total comfort food kinda meal! Will make this again when I can fit in a splurge day :)

I had 2 Boboli thin crusts from a previous recipe that I didn't end up making, so I searched for recipes with good sounding toppings to try and use up the crusts This was uber FAB! I followed all instructions after that, completely, except for subbing Feta for the blue cheese crumbles. Chicken and sauce was delicious!

I have made the tacos and creamy salsa numerous times and everyone that tastes them loves them as much as I do!

Reviewed chicken and bacon corn chowder

Aug 16, 2014 on

This turned out even better than I imagined! I cut the recipe in half, therefore, only poached 2 chicken breasts. I also subbed frozen corn/thawed for ears of corn. I followed the rest of the recipe exact, except for cutting all ingredients in half. It still made a nice size pot that easily serves 4 people. So amazingly delicious!

Jul 31, 2014 on

Very good! I made the meatballs and the marinara sauce. I used a can of crushed tomatoes for the sauce instead of whole, and then omitted the water all together. Otherwise I followed the recipe word for word. I served meatballs over Giada's cheesy polenta. Yum!

Jul 31, 2014 on

I thought this was very good and very quick and easy to make. I used a can of tomatoes with chipotle which gave the dish a nice little kick. I think next time I would also add a little bit of chili flake and some capers or olives.

Jul 23, 2014 on

This was fantastic! I did take the advice of the previous reviewer and only used 1 cup of flower and 2 eggs, and that was plenty. I also wish that I cut the recipe in half for the tomato sauce because it made a huge pot and I used maybe a cups worth. The sauce is delicious though. All in all, this is a simple, easy to follow recipe with super...

AMAZING!! With this chicken schnitzel and onion gravy being the star of my dish, it was probably one of the best dinners I have ever made!

These sandwiches are incredible! The pork turned out so flavorful, perfect! I followed the entire recipe to a T until the very end.

I love how the grill acts like a pannini press, it flattens the sandwich and gives the bread a nice...
