I* agree, this recipe is so easy it doesn't need a recipe. Follow the directions on the box for pie not pudding. You can also fold in an 8 oz. carton of Cool Whip, reg. or light. It gives the chocolate a mousse like texture. It makes it seem like you worked all day on it.

While it may not be true Irish soda bread, it is delicious. Call it what you want to but bake it. for fcast2127 be sure you cut the X in the dough before baking. That should take care of the crack you get in your bread. Enjoy.

These are delicious if you follow the recipe. Why do people change the recipe to suit their taste and then rate the recipe as no good. The recipe is suppose to be rated as it is written. If the people changing the recipe were so good, they would have their own show on Food Network. Try the recipe, if you don't like it then rate it. Someone wrote...

I haven't made these yet but they sound delicious. I wanted to also add my two cents in about this new website. Whoever designed this should be fired. I hate it!!!! I can't find anything. The old website was so easy to find, save or print recipes. You could find the recipe right where it should be, with the shows name, the time it was on and the day...

I've been making chicken piccata for years and this one is too lemony. too much lemon juice for my taste. also too much oil. Giada is good but sometimes she uses too much oil.

I agree. This recipe was written entirely wrong. If someone hadn't watched the show and was preparing this recipe as it is written can you imagine all the wasted ingredients. Money wasted, ingredients wasted. Please get it write before its put on line.

Nov 18, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

I found this dish to be delicious. For the person who said it was too rich, all you have to do is cut down on the butter that's added. I cook for just myself and my husband so I didn't make as many potatoes so naturally I cut down on the butter but if you find it too rich just cut down on the butter. It's just using common sense in cooking.

For robertshari2002 who wanted the recipe to print larger. When you are ready to print click on print preview, set the scale to 90% and you should get a larger print that way. I use Firefox and on the top left of my computer I click on Firefox and then print and then print preview. It won't print, it will just show you what it will look like....

I've made this many times, however using raw eggs is very dangerous. I make it with egg beaters. Use 1 cup of egg beaters and add only 1/4 cup at a time and beat that in well before adding another 1/4 of a cup. The recipe I use came from a magazine and it is soooo delicious. It tastes like chocolate mousse, so light and fluffy. I also put mine "

This may be delicious but 1 1/2 lbs of butter. All that chocolate and raw egg whites. 1. It's way too expensive to make. Butter is expensive, chocolate is expensive and I don't like to eat raw eggs of any kind.

This is delicious but one thing I will never understand. How can someone review a recipe after they have changed it all up. Some people take out ingredients to add something they like and then they say this recipe is no good or its great. Review the recipe after you have tried it, then add another review with what you did or did not like about it."

This was very good however you NEVER, EVER put that kind of a pan on the stove. It is for the oven only. If you put in on the top of your stove it will explode. I knew that the minute I watched her do that. Years ago my daughter had a room full of family over for Thanksgiving and she was reheating the potatoes in her casserole pan and it explod"

for mommannetti, you don't have to scrape the filling from oreos to use them. just grind them in a food processor and they will be fine for the chocolate base. scraping the filling is way too much work. these were delicious. I too should have doubled the recipe. next time I will. "

Yes, the cookies are very good, however butter is expensive. I don't think making 24 cookies with 3 sticks of butter is worth it. I love Ira's recipes and watch her daily. I have been baking and cooking for years but really, 3 sticks of butter = 24 cookies. I don't think so!""
