ABSOLUTELY AMAZING RECIPE! SO DELICIOUS! Any of you have extra veggies and ricotta mixture once you assembled your pizzas? I found a great way to use all the leftover products that didn't make it on the pizzas. For the extra ricotta mixture, use it for baked lasagna! Then, use the leftover grilled veggies on top of a crisp romaine salad with Ital...

Seriously delicious! It is a little time consuming, but absolutely worth every minute. I was skeptical about the ricotta mixture, but it definitely made the pizza taste even better! (we tried one without the ricotta and basil oil) My grocery store only had bulk sausage, no links - so I browned it in a skillet and got it nice and brown and crispy ...

YUMMY! Couldn't find lemon curd at the store, so used lemon pie filling instead. Tasted so bright and sunny! Added lemon zest and extra juice to the cream/curd mixture - definitely needed that punch of lemon. My whole family enjoyed it - it's very hard not to take a second helping!"

SO DELICIOUS! I eliminated the squash b/c my husband doesn't like it; also added grilled red onion. I would make this again in a heartbeat! Absolutely fantastic - can't say enough of how good it is. It soaks up the flavor overnight and gets better and better as the days go on!"

I made the taquitos and they were yummy! I added some monterey jack cheese inside and that gave it some nice moisture that I think they needed. Flavor was great. I served them with a tomatillo salsa, sour cream, and guacamole .... tasted awesome dipped in the sauces!"

Absolutely fantastic! The coffee liqueur makes the cake so moist - and it doesn't taste like alcohol. I made the cake in two 9-in round pans .... then you can slice the cakes in half and they fit perfectly in the trifle dish!!! It makes for a beautiful presentation. Make sure you cool the fudge before assembling the layers. I ended with the whipped...

Delicious! Packed with a lot of flavor. I used white wine in the sauce - and it really complimented the shallots and dijon mustard. The chicken came out very flavorful and very moist. I added a little bit more broth to the sauce because it reduced a little too thick for my liking - but everything was delicious!

Packed full of flavor!! I ended up using a pre-made flatbread that you bake in the oven - and it was delicious. I'm sure the homemade flatbread is fantastic as well! There is so much depth of flavor in this dish. Yumm!

I made this for Christmas and it was FANTASTIC! Everyone loved it and couldn't get enough!! It is definitely rich and decadent, so I cut them into small little bites. There was not a crumb left on the platter when my families got through with them! Delicious!

This recipe is a WINNER!! I made it for Thanksgiving, for both my family and my husband's family. Both families drooled over it!! It really is a delicious stuffing - and both sides of the family asked if this could be "my dish" for every Thanksgiving! The grocery store by me only had 6 leeks left, so that is all I used in the recipe and it turned...

These were a HUGE HIT for Thanksgiving this year!! Super delicious. I couldn't find pre-made mini pie shells, but I bought a pack of regular pie crusts and used a drinking glass to cut out the shapes.....it worked perfectly! I got exactly 24 shells out of 2 large shells. Putting the frosting in a piping bag with the star tip was definitely a nice...

While the chicken was really moist and juicy - the rest of the dish fell somewhat flat. All that was left from the apples were the skins. The broth left over had some decent flavor, but again, the dish just didn't come together for my husband and I. It wasn't bad - but it wasn't something I'd keep in my recipe file.

Not bad, but not fantastic. Simple - good for kids! I like more flavor in my dishes. I wouldn't add it to my recipe book - not worth the notecard :) Overall, there was nothing bad about it - it just needs to be "taken up a notch" like Emeril used to say!!! Maybe I will try some of the suggestions from readers below......

Incredibly yummy! I added a dash of cayenne pepper to my flour that coated my chicken. Subtle, but really compliments with the sauce and spinach. I did also add a dash of nutmeg to my spinach like many users said. My husband loved this and so did I. A definite winner :)
