Absolutely, hands down, THE BEST BURGER I have ever had. My husband and I cooked them two weeks ago, and we are cooking them again tonight. Delicious!

Also, we wrapped the burgers in parchment paper, just as a hamburger joint would. It saved our hands and arms (yes, arms) from getting messy. This is a messy burger indeed!

Tasty & Simple. I cut up the chicken into appropriate sizes and marinated it in homemade butermilk (milk and lemon juice) for 2 days. It was incredible! The batter was GREAT and I agree with a previous reviewer, one dredge is enough. I fried the chicken strips and then baked them at 350 to ensure they were cooked for about 20 minutes. Not...

Absolutely fantastic and a must make again dish. I used linguisa sausage in place of the pork, and simmered it covered for about an hour total. Huge hit with the family and the house smelled amazing."

Absolutely incredible. Slightly salty for my taste, but it was so good. I sauteed the chicken in a separate pan after I marinated it in red curry paste and hoise and fish sauce for about 30 minutes. I also decreased the curry paste by 1 tablespoon, and would probably decrease it another tablespoon to 1 tablespoon. It was spicy for our guests,...

My husband enjoyed this recipe, I on the other hand wasn't a huge fan. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the slurry and also loved how the sauce came together over heat. I did a few things differently than what the recipe called for, and also next time I will do a few things differently. I followed the slurry recipe to a "T" and it was perfect. I mixed the ...

WONDERFUL to finally know and have a good recipe to make mayonnaise. My husband couldn't believe I made it, but already the store bought stuff has gone by the waist side.

GREAT and super easy recipe! My husband as well as guests were floored that I made the dressing myself. We eat salad with dinner every night, so I made a triple recipe and that lasted about a week for the two of us. I took note on the garlic being quite strong, so I used six cloves for the tripled recipe. Worked perfectly! We are garlic lover"

WOW! Clam chowder is my favorite soup, and I will NEVER again order this in the restaurant; this was the best Clam Chowder I have ever had. Clam juice is quite expensive, so I boiled the clams as you normally would with all the fixings, strained it and used that as the clam juice. I followed everything else to a "T" and it was out of this world!...
